The rain we saw yesterday was enough to improve air quality across the area with the only city as of this morning not in the ‘Good’ level is Klamath Falls which only improved one level and is now in the ‘Moderate.’ A cold front approaching the coast today will bring increasing winds to the region with the strongest gusty winds occurring at the coast and higher elevations with gusts up to 40 mph. A High Surf Advisory is in effect at the coast until 11 am for waves reaching up to 25 feet and sneaker waves. High winds may also cause difficult travel for high profile vehicles. Tomorrow heavy rain and snow will occur at times that may impact mountain pass travel, the roads most likely impacted will be Hwy’s 62, 66, 138, 140 and potentially I-5. Not only will winds impact the coast tomorrow but we also have the chance for isolated thunderstorms.
Be sure to check road conditions before heading out, you can do that by simply going to the weather links on the weather homepage. While you’re there you can also learn how to create a winter travel preparedness kit!
I’ll be updating my Facebook with road and weather reports to keep you informed! Thanks for logging on and have a great Wednesday!
