WEATHER DISCUSSION

Overnight fog will develop lingering into the mid to late morning for valley locations with periods of sunshine before a disturbance moves in in the afternoon bringing a chance for showers mainly at the coast and Cascades, with a slight chance for west and east side areas. Steady rain is possible over the Cascades at times tomorrow evening with isolated showers elsewhere. Snow levels Thursday will be 4,500 feet, so any showers tomorrow will be mainly in the form of rain. A stronger storm system arrives late Friday.

Snow levels will drop to 3,000 feet by Saturday morning with the most significant accumulations falling above 3,500 feet. The heaviest rain/snow will fall overnight Friday into Saturday morning with decreasing showers through the day Saturday. Winds will be gusty up to 20 to 35 mph for the coast, east side and ridges. Travel over the high country will be hazardous at times with snow covered and icy roads in addition to gusty winds reducing visibility at times. Avoid travel if possible Friday night and Saturday morning, especially for the typically impacted highways: 138, 230, 62, 97, 66 and 140. Snow totals of 4 to 9 inches in the Cascades, 1 to 2 inches on the east side and 2 to 4 inches north of Klamath Falls on Highway 97 and even 1 to 3 inches of snow possible over Siskiyou Summit.
