A storm system is moving through the region this morning bringing heavy snow at times to locations down to 1,100 feet. The low associated with this system did not shift as far south as anticipated as thus has brought quite a bit of snow to southern Oregon. The bulk of the precipitation is now hitting northern California and will continue to over the next several hours. This afternoon rain and snow will become more showery and we’ll start to dry out overnight. Through the day today roads may be hazardous due to snow and icy conditions, we’ve had reports of several accidents already this morning so be sure to check road conditions before heading out, carry chains and leave extra time for travel.  Roads may become icy again overnight and for the rest of the week. You can find a link to tripcheck’s website under weather links.

A weak disturbance will bringing light showers late Wednesday into Thursday with snow levels around 2,000 feet, occasionally down to 1,500 feet. The strongest storm of the week will bring heavy rain, snow and strong winds late Friday through the day on Saturday and we could once again see low level snow. Roads once again may be hazardous at times.
