A front moving through the Pacific Northwest this afternoon will bring rain & snow showers along & west of the Cascades today. Snow levels will start off around 4,000′ and rise to about 5,000′ this afternoon depending on your location. This will be snow showers for Crater Lake & Diamond Lake ..also Mt. Ashland, if any showers are to pass over the mountain that is.
Winds will stay breezy today in the Basin & at the Coast. A high wind warning (for the high terrain) & wind advisory (for the low terrain) is in place for Eastern Klamath and all of Lake County to account for this. It will expire at 9pm tonight.
Tuesday’s front will be much more potent, bringing a little more widespread rain to the area. Winds will pick up again with the passing of this front, and colder air will settle in behind it. This will bring snow showers Tuesday night into Wednesday to the Cascades & potentially to Siskiyou Summit. I wouldn’t be surprised if the NWS issues a winter weather advisory for the Cascades sometime today for Tuesday’s front.
The end of the week & weekend looks to be dry with clear skies & gradually warming temperatures.
