Rain will continue today across much of the Pacific Northwest. A warm front is due to arrive by late morning bringing moderate to heavy rainfall into early afternoon, by about 1 o’clock, to the coastline. By late afternoon, the front will travel inland bringing moderate to heavy precipitation to the Cascades.

Jackson County will be in the rain shadow today and although we won’t see steady rain all afternoon, we will see rain showers and they are capable of dropping heavy rain as well. Josephine County has a better chance at catching steady showers throughout the afternoon.

Snow levels are starting off around 4,000′ this morning but they’ll be rising near 6,000′ into the afternoon. Come Thursday morning, the cold front pushes inland and this will then drop snow levels to 5,000′ Thursday evening. By Friday morning, they’ll be down to 4,000.’

Steady rain will move into the entire region as a whole on Thursday as the cold front sweeps south and east. Showers will linger into Friday before tapering off Friday night. The weekend will be mostly dry for inland locations right now with just very isolated showers. Temperatures will still be cool and skies partly to mostly cloudy. The Coast will see more showers Saturday afternoon and evening.
