A warm front to our West will move through the region late this evening. This, along with cloud cover, will prevent temperatures from dropping below freezing in the Rogue Valley. Periods of light rain are expected through the evening and the day tomorrow as well. East of the Cascades should be mainly light snow showers this evening, and rain will mix with snow in Siskiyou County overnight. Snow levels will be around 3,500′ Sunday evening and rise to about 6,500′-7,000′ by Monday afternoon. Winds will also begin to pick up tomorrow ahead of our next system.
By Monday evening, most of the moisture will have shifted to the East and we’ll begin to dry out. Mostly cloudy skies are expected for all areas, and windy conditions as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if the National Weather Service releases a High Wind Watch or Warning for the Coast and East of the Cascades and an Advisory for the Valleys. Wednesday a very strong cold front will move South, Southeast. Snow levels will drop to the Valley floor Wednesday night. The front will also produce widespread rain and snow. Showers will begin as rain ahead of the front and then mix with snow, even inland from the Coast. Snow in the Rogue Valley will be a threat Wednesday evening, and also into Thursday. Very cold Arctic air will sweep in after the front passes and all areas will remain cold through Saturday. It’s possible snow showers fall into Thursday morning as well before changing back to rain.
We’ll keep you updated all week on the incoming storms!
