Another front is beginning to push south and east across our forecast area. This is bringing widespread shower activity to much of Southern Oregon & Northern California. It will stall out over the Klamath Basin & Siskiyou County and this will allow rain showers to consistently develop in both of these areas into the afternoon. Snow levels will consistently drop through the morning, with the arrival of the cooler air moving in, and should be down to 5,500′ by the afternoon. 1″-2″ of snow is possible above this throughout the day today.
By this evening, it will then exit the area but another disturbance will move in right on it’s tail, straight from our north. As it travels down the I-5 corridor late tonight, snow levels continue dropping. Around 5 o’clock, this front will bring rain showers to the Coast, and then snow showers to the Cascades & rain showers for the West Side around 11 & 12 o’clock. This is not a significant front but it is capable of bringing an additional 1″-2″ of accumulation tonight to the high terrain.
Computer models have continued to disagree on Thursday & Friday’s forecast. Some show another system moving into the area, some do not. I have kept showers in the forecast through the end of the week for all areas to account for this. By Friday morning snow levels will be around 3,000′ so across the higher elevations these showers will be in the form of snow. We’ll have a better grasp later today on exact storm track and intensity.
