WEATHER DISCUSSION

A weather system off to our north today will bring clouds into much of the region and very spotty showers to the Coast & Cascades. Snow levels are starting off around 3,000′ and will rise to about 4,000′ this afternoon. Given the recent rain and snow, its likely many of the roads will be icy in the hills and higher elevations. Siskiyou Summit again is below freezing and slick conditions here are also likely. Leave extra time if you are in these locations to get to wherever you need to be this morning.

Friday will be quiet as well, with a high pressure ridge building into the West. This will bring dry and partly to mostly sunny skies for Friday through Sunday. Sunday night, clouds will begin streaming in from the Pacific. The storm door will swing open again on Monday, bringing in our next chance for wet weather.

Showers on Monday will be mostly in the form of rain with snow levels staying high through the first half of next week. Wednesday looks to be the next front that should bring a little more widespread and measurable rain to Southern Oregon & Northern California. Late Wednesday or into Thursday, hopefully snow levels will drop and help to bring more snow to the slopes and mountains. For now, it looks like they’ll stay around 6,000′ through much of Wednesday.
