Rain showers have been persistent overnight and through this morning. The wet weather will continue through much of today across the region as a front moves south and east today across the Northwest. Some good rain has fallen at the Coast and even Medford has seen a quarter of an inch so far. Rain totals will only go up from here.
Snow levels are fairly high so mainly just Crater Lake is seeing snow. A few inches of snow fell there overnight and the webcam from Mt. Ashland is also showing snow on the ground. Snow levels will be around 6,500′ this afternoon and 1″-2″ of accumulation is possible above this.
The showers will begin to taper off tomorrow morning from west to east. The Klamath Basin will see shower activity through the morning, but over Siskiyou County it will be for much of the day. West of the Cascades should stay mostly dry.
All areas are seeing dry conditions by Thursday, but this will be the start of some very cold mornings following this system’s passing. Morning lows in the mid to upper teens are anticipated on the East Side and upper 20′s in the Valley. Mostly sunny and dry weather is expected for the weekend — even at the Coast due to an offshore wind.
