A warm front that passed through the region this morning is bringing cloud cover and some spotty showers, mainly to the Coastline. This activity should begin to taper off through the morning and Monday will give us a brief break in the wet weather. By early Tuesday morning, a third front will move in from the North and West.
This cold front will have bring in a much cooler air mass to Southern Oregon and Northern California – even cooler than Friday & Saturday’s disturbance. Shower activity will persist through Tuesday and Wednesday and temperatures will drop well below normal. Highs will be in the low and mid 60’s in the valleys and low and mid 50’s on the East Side.
Snow levels are expected to drop to roughly 5,000’ into Wednesday morning which will mean snow showers for the higher terrain. Some of the highest peaks across mainly Southern Oregon, where the bulk of the storm will be, could receive a good 3”-4.” Those closer to 5,000’ will most likely see a dusting.
After this system, a drying and warming trend will move into place. This will bring temperatures into the low 80’s by the weekend, which is seasonal, and lots of sunshine.
