An area of low pressure will bring a warm front followed by a cold front through the region today. This system will bring rain showers into the morning hours and then more widespread rain into the afternoon. In addition to the rain intensifying later today, winds will become gusty as well. Snow levels will be around 7,500′ for today but will lower tonight near 6,000.’ Still, only rain is anticipated even in the Cascades through much of today and tonight.
By Friday morning, snow levels will be down to 5,000′ and at this point a few snow showers are likely near Crater Lake and Diamond Lake. Showers will be ongoing Friday and skies will stay cloudy and temperatures cool. Another weak disturbance will push inland on Saturday and this storm is looking slightly more potent than previous days.
Again, cool temperatures and mostly cloudy skies will remain into Saturday. Rain is now in the forecast for the Coast and showers across inland areas. An isolated thunderstorm could develop along the coastal waters and in the Klamath Basin Saturday as well.
A drying and warming trend will begin on Sunday, after the very cold night Saturday/Sunday. We will likely see another late season frost or freeze event through this time period and we’ll be monitoring this into the weekend.
High temperatures will soar again next week under clear skies. We’ll be in the lower 80′s by midweek in the Basin and near 90 across the West Side. Thess temperatures will likely increase in the days to come as well.
