The moist onshore flow will bring more showers into the region again today. Most of the activity is going to be over Curry, Del Norte & Josephine Counties. Also Western Siskiyou County will likely see more showers than those further inland. Elsewhere, isolated showers will fall.

Snow levels are low today — around 3,500′ for the morning and 4,000′ for the afternoon. Above this, 1″-4″ of accumulating snow is likely. Throughout the day, Highway 140 will have slick pavement. Roads near Crater Lake & Diamond Lake will be snow covered and those traveling into the high country should drive carefully.

Friday will bring in a much more potent storm system, dropping a couple inches of rain along the Coast Friday through Saturday and up to an inch or more for West Side Valleys. Quick rises in rivers and streams, primarily at the Coast, are expected into the weekend. Snow levels will initially be high on Friday — rising above 6,000.’ But they will be dropping quickly into Friday evening and Saturday. At this point they will be between 3,000′ and 4000.’

Sunday we’ll keep the clouds around but showers will be very spotty. A few more storms are forecasted to move inland next week.

    Megan Perry reported a tornado warning for the Chico area on the 6:45 PM weather report. She stated that it would hit the Durham area in about an hour and head northeast from there. I notified my daughter that lives N.E. of Durham and needlessly panicked her since the weather there actually happened at about 2:45 in the afternoon and dissipated after that. There was no severe weather in the area between 7:00 and 9:00 PM. I don’t know how or why this information was reported but it was inaccurate and caused unnecessary concern.
