Rain and snow picked up overnight and up to an inch of snow is blanketing Klamath Falls this morning. The high country has snow as well and roads will be icy throughout the morning. Snow levels are starting off at 3,500′ today but climbing to 4,000′ later today. Showers will continue developing today and isolated thunderstorms are in the forecast for all areas as well.
A frost advisory is already in place for tonight across West Side Valleys. Overnight lows will drop near critical values — into the upper 20′s and lower 30′s. Those with crops or plants sensitive to temperatures should cover them this evening and/or keep a close eye on temperatures.
Saturday we catch a break from this wet and damp weather pattern. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy though and temperatures cool. Another front will move inland Saturday night bringing rain to the Coast and showers to areas inland by Saturday evening. Showers will continue into Sunday before drier air moves in on Monday. Snow levels will be between 3,500′ to 4,000′ through this time frame.
Monday a warming and drying trend will begin. Clouds will still stick around into Monday but Tuesday will bring plenty of sun. High temperatures will climb into the 70′s and lower 80′s by the middle of next week.
