METEOROLOGIST MARISA WOLOSZYN’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Rain showers continue Tuesday night for areas below 2,500 feet. Snow showers will continue above 2,500 feet with 6-12″ of new snow above 5,000 feet. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. for mountain areas above 5,000 feet. Winds have also picked up with this storm, especially in the Klamath Basin where a High Wind Warning is in effect until 1 a.m. Winds will be out of the southwest 30-40 mph with gusts around 60 mph.
Isolated showers continue Wednesday as we fall in between systems. Snow lines will be around 3,000 feet, so more snow for the mountains. The morning commute across the Siskiyou summit could be slick Wednesday morning with a few inches of snow expected.
Another storm moves in Thursday, but will weaken as it approaches the area. This storm will bring a few showers with the heaviest along the coast and mountain ranges.
High pressure moves in Friday, transitioning skies to mostly sunny. Temps will also warm up into the upper 50s for the coast, valley and Siskiyou County; and into the low 50s for the Basin and mountains.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
