Quiet Today, More Rain Later in the Week

After the active and wet finish to the work week on Friday, the weather will remain fairly quiet today. The recent rain is allowing for lots of fog to develop across all areas this morning. This fog will burn off through the morning and a weak front moving through the Northwest today will help to bring clouds into the Coast & West Side. Light and scattered rain showers will develop through Monday at the Coast. Sprinkles across the Rogue Valley may fall also, however most areas will be dry inland.

Tuesday will keep plenty of clouds in the area, ahead of our next frontal system that will push inland late Tuesday. Showers will likely develop ahead of the front and then more consistent rain will begin overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. The rain will continue through the end of the week with snow levels staying above 5,000.’ Also, winds will be increasing with these fronts as well.  With so much cloud cover hanging around through the end of the week, morning temperatures will stay very mild. The southerly winds will keep afternoons above average as well.

With snow levels staying high, this may be rain & snow for Mt. Ashland. At this time it looks like snow levels will rise above 7,000′ into Wednesday morning. For Mt. Shasta, all precipitation will be in the form of snow.  The latest snow reports indicate about a foot of snow depth for both mountains and hopefully with this active weather pattern over the area we can continue to put accumulating snow on the slopes & get them open!
