Ice, Snow, Rain & Fog

Widespread dense freezing fog along the I-5 corridor as well as frost, snow and ice to start the day. Over the next couple of days driving conditions will be compromised, so leave time to drive slowly and safely and also time to defrost your windshield. Temperatures this morning got down below freezing even in the Rogue Valley which breaks the record long freeze free trend in Medford.

So far ODOT has reported:

Spots of Ice:
Siskiyou Summit, Prospect, and Green Springs Summit

Packed Snow:
Diamond Lake Summit, Mt. Ashland, Crater Lake

Black Ice:
Chiloquin, Klamath Falls, Lake of the Woods, Doak Mountain Summit

You can check road conditions under weather links, something you may want to do before heading out, especially if you’re headed to the high country. Winter Weather Advisory’s are in effect until 10 AM this morning for most areas in our region today meaning that travel difficulties may be present.

A few showers may linger into tomorrow morning but most of the weekend for the inland areas will be dry, although very cold in the morning with Sunday morning the coldest morning of the season. We bring in another chance for rain and snow next week.

Stay warm out there and drive safely! I have more weather updates and details on road conditions on my Facebook and Twitter pages. Also remember to join me this Saturday at the Grange Co-op Pet Daze for the Fashion Show at 6pm!  Thanks for logging on and have a great weekend!
