Mainly Dry Today, Isolated Showers

Well sadly, the forecast is coming together to show dry weather for today. It doesn’t look like many showers, if any, will develop across the area through Thursday. I have spoken to two viewers this morning who mentioned sprinkles were coming down but no signatures were popping up on the radar. Nonetheless, sprinkles aren’t out of the picture today but showers will be few and far between. Fog has also developed along the coast and northern sections of the West Side near Grants Pass and Sexton Summit.

A cooler air mass has moved into Southern Oregon following yesterday’s cold front. This has dropped snow levels to about 3,500′ & will certainly help to make wet roads icy and slick in certain areas. Snow is on the road near Diamond Lake and also Crater Lake from Wednesday’s storm as well. Into tomorrow, even cooler air will settle in and drop snow levels further — to 2,000.’

As this even colder air moves in tomorrow, another weak front will sweep through the area. This will bring isolated to scattered showers through the afternoon for just a short period of time. However, with snow levels so low this will be snow showers for the foothills and high country. Little accumulation is anticipated across the higher elevations because of the lack of moisture and minor impacts are expected.

The weekend looks mainly dry with some clouds on Sunday from a storm system that will pass to our south. Into next week, high pressure will build back into the West continuing the inactive weather pattern.
