Showers Then Sun Then Another Storm

The low pressure that has brought us rain and thunderstorms since last Saturday will finally push east today but one last round of moderate to heavy rain is possible through the morning then will become more showery and isolated this afternoon. This wetting rain we’ve seen since late Saturday helped to end the driest year on record for Mt. Shasta and Medford, it is now the 3rd driest year, but with more rain on the way this week that should continue to drop. Dry and warm weather return tomorrow and Wednesday with highs climbing ten to fifteen degrees above normal, back in the mid-70s for west side valleys and mid-60s for the east side.

A cold front will be knocking temperatures down and bringing widespread rain and gusty winds to the area Thursday. Snow levels will still remain high, around 6,000 feet so not expecting hazardous travel over the mountain passes. Showers will continue Friday but will be lighter, then another cold front moves in Saturday dropping temperatures again and this time dropping snow levels to around 4,400 feet, so this may cause some travel concerns this weekend at the higher mountain passes. These next two storms will be monitored closely, as this far out things can change quickly.
