Transition from Wet to Cold

Disturbances sliding down the backside of a trough sitting over the Pacific Northwest will continue to bring showers into this evening with a drying trend overnight. As the clouds clear temperatures overnight will drop quickly down into the 20s on the east side and in the colder valleys in Siskiyou county including the Mt. Shasta area; in this area there are Freeze Warnings in effect. Thursday and Friday morning temperatures will be very cold in these locations and fairly chilly even for the warmer west side valleys. Tomorrow through Saturday will see partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies and warmer afternoon temperatures but will remain unseasonably cool with highs 10 to 15 degrees below normal and overnight lows 5 to 10 degrees below normal.

The next storm on the horizon will arrive Sunday bringing heavy rain to the coast with moderate rain for areas along and west of the Cascades Sunday afternoon into Monday morning. Showers will continue into early next week, but temperatures won’t be quite as cold as this week so snow levels will be higher and only the highest mountains could potentially see more snow.
