A cold front made it’s way through our region this morning bringing widespread light rain to the region and snow to the east side. Through the day we’ll see a few showers, mainly on the west side, with increasing winds on the east side and higher elevations. We could see gusts up to 40 mph, especially around the Summer Lake area. With wind and snow already on the ground we could see hazardous winter travel through the day in the Cascades and east side today.
High pressure will build in tonight bringing back another chance for valley fog through the morning and a mix of sun and clouds tomorrow. A slight chance for showers late Tuesday mainly in Coos county and Roseburg area, regions northwest of Grants Pass. There is a question on a system moving through late Wednesday into Thursday, even this next system connects to the Pineapple Express we’ll see more widespread showers at least on the west side. Friday will be the sunniest and warmest day of the week as we see a warming trend until then. The warming trend will warm temperatures above normal in the afternoons, but our overnight lows will remain near normal, meaning cool to cold. Our next best chance for more widespread rain and snow will be late Saturday into Sunday.
