Showers Tonight, Heavy at Times

Widespread rain showers are currently occurring over our viewing area. With winds out of the south, and a good moisture feed, showers will continue through this evening. There is the threat for an isolated thunderstorm, particularly in the higher terrain as a disturbance to our west pushes inland tonight. This is a cold pocket of air which would allow for some thunderstorm activity. Snow levels this evening will be between 5,000′ and 6,000.’

We will see a brief break from the rain tomorrow morning, but this will be short lived. By midday, our next warm front will move onshore and showers will spark up again. By Friday evening the associated cold front will follow and this will continue to bring moisture and wet conditions through the evening. Several more fronts are going to move across Southern Oregon through the course of the weekend. For this reason, rain showers are going to continue for all areas pretty much all weekend long. It will be hard to differentiate when one system has come to an end and the next is beginning.

Some drier air will move back into the NW by Tuesday and through midweek.
