WEATHER DISCUSSION

Light and isolated showers are developing this morning just offshore. The onshore wind and dissipating system from yesterday is helping to support these showers — they should come to an end through the morning. The sun will help to bring some cloud break by late afternoon to the region but most of the day will remain cloudy with temperatures slightly warmer than yesterday.

Another disturbance will move our way by tomorrow, and the associated warm front will move inland later this evening. Light and isolated showers are expected with its passing, mainly before midnight. By tomorrow, the cold front drives inland. This will bring rain to the Coast in the morning and then scattered to widespread showers to inland areas by the afternoon.

Snow levels will not drop until later Thursday, once the bulk of the precipitation is wrapping up. For this reason there is no major concern for accumulations on the higher passes. Snow levels will be around 7,000′ and drop to 4,000′ Thursday evening. Post frontal showers are still possible though through Friday morning in the higher terrain. Little to no accumulation is expected.

Winds will also pick up as this cold front moves eastward. The National Weather Service has placed Eastern Klamath and Lake Counties under a high wind watch for tomorrow afternoon and evening since gusts could reach 60mph.

Following this system dry weather moves in for the weekend with fairly zonal (straight) flow in the jetstream develops. Sunday evening into Monday more wet weather is due to arrive.
