Today marks the beginning of an active weather pattern across the Northwest. A series of storms will bring rain and even snow to the region throughout the end of the week. Skies will cloud over today and spotty showers will develop ahead of a cold front that will sweep through Southern Oregon tonight.
This front will bring in cold air; the coldest we’ve seen in a while. Snow showers are likely as low as 3,500′ for Tuesday morning. A couple inches of snow is possible with these showers overnight above 4,000.’ Because ground surface temperatures are on the warmer side, accumulating snow will likely be wet and slushy in these areas.
Thunderstorms are in the forecast for Tuesday, as the cold air settles in above us. Showers will be ongoing through Wednesday before another potent wave moves in from the West Thursday. Temperatures are going to cool down on Tuesday about 15 degrees and remain cool throughout the week.
