An area of low pressure and trailing front will move eastward today. This will bring rain showers to the Coast around lunchtime, and rain into this evening. Inland, the showers will not begin until late afternoon. With the rain will come the winds — a high wind warning is currently in place through 10pm this evening for the Coastline and a gale warning for the coastal waters. The Klamath Basin will also see breezy winds this afternoon and evening.
This event will be primarily rain and mainly just Crater Lake will see snow into this evening. Snow levels will be around 5,500′ so above this expect about 1″ of snow. Snow levels aren’t expected to drop much through the overnight hours and will be around 5,000′ tomorrow morning. Through the overnight hours the rain and snow will be ongoing, and with the cooler temperatures overnight, between 2″ & 3″ of snow could accumulate in the higher elevations.
Another front will follow Tuesday which will help to keep moisture and widespread shower activity throughout Tuesday as well. In the Valley this will be more shower activity whereas elsewhere it will be more consistent. By Wednesday morning, a few lingering showers will continue to bring some rain to Siskiyou County and the Klamath Basin. Quiet weather will settle into the Northwest by Thursday and remain in place through the weekend.
