The rest of the weekend will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be about 10 degrees colder in the Rogue Valley than Saturday afternoon with a cooler air mass now in place after the passing of a front today. Increasing clouds Monday will bring in the next disturbance. A much colder air mass will move into the area into the second half of the day. Snow levels will start off around 3,500′ Monday evening and drop to about 2,500′ by Tuesday morning. Showers will fall in Southern Oregon, with more widespread precipitation the further South you go. Most of the moisture with this system will be moving to our South but I5 near Mt. Shasta and Dunsmuir will most likely be impacted from this storm. 3-6″ of snow are possible Monday evening through Tuesday in Siskiyou County as of right now.
Wednesday most of Southern Oregon will catch a break with very isolated showers possible, more so further South into Northern California. Thursday another system will move in from our North, Northwest. In addition to the cooler air mass moving in, we will then be under the influence of northwesterly flow as well, so I suspect snow levels will drop to about 2,000′. It seems as though Thursday’s storm will come in mainly at night as well, bringing even more of a threat for snow. The coverage and intensity of this storm is still quite a ways out from now so it will continue to be monitored. Friday followed by Saturday, several more systems will move in from the North continuing to bring rain and snow to the region.
Thanks for logging on and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
