Rain & Wind Transition to Snow & Fog

video preview image

The heaviest rainfall is over, most areas will only see scattered showers today but they may be moderate at times. We’ll also see breezy conditions through the morning on the west side, while through the afternoon the east side will be windy. A wind advisory is in effect for Lake county and east Klamath county and Modoc county through 4 PM. The winds won’t be nearly as strong as we saw earlier this week, but we will be seeing more snow. Already this morning we’ve seen heavy snow at Lake of the Woods and Diamond Lake Summit, as we head into the afternoon and evening snow levels will be dropping and will likely impact other mountain passes as well as cities as higher elevations such as Klamath Falls.

To add to the travel hazardous of slick and snowy roads, we’ll see widespread fog move through the area overnight and last through the morning. Fog may be dense at times and in the colder spots freezing fog is a threat that may make roads even more slick, especially over bridges and passes. When driving through fog remember to keep your headlights on so OTHER drivers can see you, to find out more tips for driving as well as other winter safety tips AND your winter weather forecast be sure to tune in tonight at 6:30 for our winter weather special!
