**UPDATED 2/14** — The flood watch over much of the area has been upgraded to a flood advisory through tomorrow morning at the Coast & 9 o’clock tonight for inland areas. This includes all of the Coast, all of Jackson & Josephine Counties, all of Siskiyou County, the Cascades & Western Klamath County. This flood advisory is for the ponding of water in urban areas, highways, streets & underpasses. Poor drainage areas will likely see flooding & also low lying areas.
Rain is now falling & coming down good for the West Side. Rain will be ongoing through much of Friday, continuing into Friday night. A high wind warning has been issued for Eastern Klamath & Lake Counties. Also, a wind advisory remains in place for the Shasta Valley today. The National Weather Service has already issued a high wind watch for tomorrow’s front for many areas — including the Coast, Shasta Valley, Cascades & part of the Klamath Basin.
Snow levels will stay high today, however snow is falling across the highest elevations of the Cascades at this time. They will stay around 6,000′ this afternoon, but any snow falling will be a very wet heavy snow and rain will dominate for today’s event. This snow above 6,000′ will change back over to rain late Friday night & through the first half of Saturday.
Saturday morning will be a bit of a break for inland areas, not at the Coast though. Spotty showers will certainly be around the first half of the day, but more steady rain is expected to arrive and push inland for the afternoon. Sunday will act as our break day — with plenty of clouds & plenty of fog. A lot of rain and wind is on the way for next week, plus snow for the mountains!
