The last surge of strong moisture is moving through the region this morning bringing widespread rain and heavy rain at times to the coast and higher elevations. Periods of rain will continue through the morning for the west side and northern California turning to scattered to isolated showers this afternoon. Whereas for the east side we’ll see showers through the early morning with rain reaching the basin by mid-morning then only a few showers in the late afternoon and evening. We’ve already seen substantial storm totals over the past 48-hours and we’ll see even more today:

Red Mound: 2.71″
Quail Prairie: 2.07″
Brookings: 1.25″
Chiloquin: 0.50″

Sexton Summit: 0.48″
Grants Pass: 0.42″
North Bend: 0.42″
Happy Camp: 0.31″
Evans Creek: 0.28″
Mt. Shasta: 0.23″
Weed: 0.21″
Medford: 0.07″
Klamath Falls: 0.56″
Fish Lake: 0.50″

A few showers will linger tomorrow with a drastic change Thursday with the arrival of a high pressure from the Midwest pushing into the Great Basin. Highs will jump from close to 20 degrees below normal yesterday to 10 degrees above normal by Friday! Highs will be in the mid-90s in west side valleys, mid to upper-80s on the east side and areas of Siskiyou county valleys will see highs close to the triple-digits by next week!

Thanks for logging on and have a great Tuesday!
