Rain and snow will fall over the region this evening. Temperatures will drop into the low 30′s in the Rogue Valley, so rain is expected to mix with snow and even change to snow in some locations by early morning. By sunrise, most places should be dry and remain dry through early afternoon. The sun could even break out of the clouds by midday. Another disturbance will move in from the North, Northwest late Sunday. By 8pm, most areas should have rain and/or snow falling. Again, a rain/snow mix is expected tomorrow evening in the Rogue Valley once temperatures cool through the evening. It will switch back over to rain as they warm through Monday. Little to no accumulation is expected both this evening and tomorrow evening. However, bridges and overpasses will still be slick; temperatures will drop below freezing so patches of ice are possible.
Rain and snow are expected through much of Monday and showers will linger into Tuesday morning. Most areas dry up for the second half of the day Tuesday before a much stronger disturbance sweeps in from the North. This will first bring a warm front through that will raise snow levels through the day. By Wednesday, a very pronounced cold front will move South, Southeastward through Oregon. Very cold, Arctic air will filter in behind it, quickly lowering snow levels. Widespread precipitation is expected with this storm, and will start as rain Wednesday before changing to snow in the Rogue Valley. By Wednesday evening snow levels will drop to the Valley floor. Into Thursday morning any shower over the valley should be falling as snow the way the computer models look as of now. The strength of this storm, and possible precipitation amounts, are still differing and could change over the next several days. Temperatures will remain cold into Friday!
