We will remain in cool, moist northwesterly which means a chance for showers through the workweek with the most likely places for more scattered to widespread showers at the north coast, Umpqua and the Cascades. Snow levels will be at 3,500 feet through Monday which means the Cascade passes could be snow covered, slick and icy at times. Areas of fog will also develop by tomorrow morning which may reduce visibility at times across the entire area. Overnight pass travel should not be greatly impacted, but you should be prepared for slick conditions.
Tomorrow will bring increasing showers along and west of the Cascades with only a slight chance for a few showers on the east side. Northern California will be cool but dry for the most part. Northern California through the week in fact will be the driest area for us with the best chance for rain Thursday and Sunday with the arrival of two cold fronts. A warm front will pass through Tuesday bringing increasing showers to inland areas and rain to the coast with Wednesday drying out. Thursday the next cold front will bring periods of rain to the region and breezy winds with spotty showers continuing Friday into Saturday.
The timing of the Sunday system is not exact as of now, but near the end of the weekend into early next week expect another potent cold front to return widespread rain, snow and winds to the area. Stay tuned to Newswatch12 for the latest on this week’s storms. Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
