A small storm will mean big changes in the weather.
I would not call this a big storm. I will call it a “sweeper” storm. With just enough wind, rain and cold air above the ground, this storm will sweep the polluted air, the gunky air, the ugly air, the not good for breathing air out of the valleys and the Klamath Basin.
Big changes, because only a little snow in the Klamath Basin, means slick, hazardous, snow-packed roads…because there is so much cold, frost and freezing in the ground…that only a light snowfall will make extremely slick road conditions.
Some freezing rain could also fall briefly in the Grants Pass area, before changing to all rain. Snow levels will be around 3,500 to 4,000 feet.
