Snow Falling Above 2,500′ Tonight

Rain & snow are currently falling over the viewing area. I’ve had reports of snow in Klamath Falls, a rain/snow mix in both O’Brien & Prospect, and also sleet near Glendale. Last nights cold front brought in some cooler air, but an even cooler air mass is moving in and quickly dropping snow levels. This is going to make for slick roadways through this evening and into the morning. Snow levels are currently around 4,000′ but will be dropping to 2,500′ by the morning. This means that snow could be falling on the higher passes. Accumulation near 2,500′ will be tough with surface temperatures above freezing but 3,500′-4,000′ locations could see 1″-2″ in the Valley’s and on the East Side. The Southern Cascades will see an additional 2″-4″ of snow through Sunday evening. I think the Siskiyou’s as well are going to see 2″-4″ also.

Temperatures are going to be chilly this evening, much cooler than what we are used to at night. This will be the case Monday night/Tuesday morning as well. Some stray showers will linger through Monday but those areas cold enough to support snow will see little to no accumulation. Weak high pressure will move back into our region by Tuesday.

Thanks for logging on and be careful on the roads in the morning! Now getting reports of slippery spots on 140.
