The disturbance over the region has brought the first snowfall to parts of our viewing area, especially at Crater Lake where roads were covered in snow at the visitor’s center this morning. Snow levels are at about 4,500′ and will only rise to roughly 5,000′ this afternoon. A very cool and moist air mass is in place today so temperatures are not expected to warm up much into the afternoon.
Rain and snow showers will be ongoing into this evening before the low pressure system to our north moves east. Skies will gradually clear through the overnight hours and that will allow for a very cold night to unfold. A freeze warning is already in place for parts of Klamath County, Northeastern Siskiyou County and extreme Southern Siskyou County. Along the I-5 corridor in Siskiyou County a frost advisory is in place for tomorrow morning.
Temperatures will remain cool into Thursday but sunshine will return. A warming trend into Saturday will continue to bring temperatures closer to seasonal values, but by Sunday it looks like another system will be moving in from the North and West. This will not be as cold, but looks pretty potent in terms of wet weather.
