A disturbance brought showers to our region this afternoon. For a period of time rain was falling over much of Jackson County and snow was coming down in the Cascades. Most of the showers have dwindled down at this point and have become very isolated. The storm is pretty much wrapping up, however I have left showers in the forecast for the overnight hours. Snow levels will be dropping to about 2,500′-3,000′ after midnight so any showers that pass through the higher elevations will be snow, but are only capable of dropping a light accumulation, if any at all.
A stray shower could linger into tomorrow morning, but for the most part Sunday we’ll see decreasing clouds as this system pushes east and a weak ridge of high pressure builds in. Temperatures will now be more seasonable tomorrow with the passing of the front. Monday is looking very nice for all areas, with warmer temperatures and a mix of sun and clouds.
A stronger storm system is going to be moving in from our south, southwest come Tuesday evening. This disturbance will have a lot of moisture with it and will be bringing heavy rains to the lower elevations and snow to the higher terrain. Gusty winds will also be an issue with this storm. As of now precipitation will begin Tuesday, in the form of showers, and continue through Wednesday with Wednesday being the wash out day. It’s possible this could change over the next few days so stay tuned to NewsWatch12 for updates!
