Light and isolated showers fell today throughout the area, but mainly north of the Oregon and California state line. Crater Lake and higher elevations even saw a bit of wintry mix. Precipitation chances will continue to diminish as the evening progresses, and the sunshine will return just in time to start warming us up towards the middle of the week.
With the mention of a wintry mix comes talk of the snow level. It will be falling to 5000 feet in the mountains through the overnight hours. This means that any precipitation that falls in higher elevations could see a frozen mix of rain, sleet, and snow. Also, with the unseasonably cold temperatures in place, another freeze warning is in effect late tonight into early Tuesday morning for areas east of the Cascades and the Klamath Basin.
High temperatures will begin their climb on Tuesday and will be above average by Wednesday. A brief cool down occurs when a cold front passes Friday, but only drops temperatures by a few degrees…nothing like what the area has seen over the past couple of days. We are keeping an eye on rain chances for the weekend. A few isolated showers could fall in the basin and northern California, but a few rumbles of thunder are possible as well.
Thanks for logging on. Have a great night!
