Showers Taper Off Tomorrow

The main line of rain has passed through and scattered showers are left behind and winds are still quite breezy. We’ve seen about half and inch of rain in Coos county and just inland from Brookings some areas have received 0.60″. Winds have peaked at 60mph around Summer Lake and around 45mph in Lakeview, a Wind Advisory continues until 10 this evening for Klamath and Lake counties. Overnight snow levels will remain around 5,000 feet and any shower activity will be light so Cascade pass travel should not be impacted. We’ll see a few isolated showers continue tomorrow morning along and east of the Cascades with drier conditions by Friday afternoon.

Friday into the weekend we’ll see a break from the showers and more sunshine, mainly partly cloudy. This means overnight lows will be chilly again especially on the east side and with a moist airmass lingering we’ll see areas of morning fog across the region. In fact Saturday morning with chilly temperatures and fog we’ll see areas of freezing fog develop. This may cause roads to be slick at times and travel overnight Friday into Saturday morning may be impacted.

Our next storm system will approach the coast Monday though weather models continue to stall the passing of this front as it will bring heavy rain offshore and to the coast. Right now Monday afternoon and evening is when areas will start to see rain with periods of rain on Tuesday. This system will weaken as it moves inland however, and looks to bring only showers to the east side. Stay tuned to Newswatch12 for the latest on this next storm system.

Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
