LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Tonight: Breezy into this evening with clouds continuing to increase across the area. Some patchy areas of smoke are possible in Northern California and in our westside valleys. Milder tonight with lows in the 40s and 50s for much of Southern Oregon and Northern California. Some places east of the Cascades could still dip down into the 30s.

Tomorrow: Autum officiall arrives on Saturday at 6:54 PM, and it's going to feel more fall-like this weekend. Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies for your Saturday with the possibility of a few showers or sprinkles, mainly along the coast and up in our higher elevations. Some areas of haze are possible too. Temperatures will be cooler with lower to middle 70s in the Rogue Valley, upper 60s and lower 70s in the Basin, warmer temperatures into California and lower 60s along the coast.

Extended: Lingering clouds and cooler than average temperatures continue into your Sunday. We should see increasing sunshine later in the day. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s across the region. As we look ahead to next week, a very warm weather pattern looks to set up for Southern Oregon and Northern California. We'll see widespread 80s and 90s by the middle of the week for high temperatures along with mainly sunny skies. We'll also likely see some gusty winds near the coast and the Chetco Effect warming up parts of the Coast, including the Brookings area. This setup could lock in place for a while with above average temperatures right into the start of October. We'll kee you posted of course.

Fire Danger remains HIGH and if any fires do spark, they could spread quickly.

We've caught a break from the precipitatoin this afternoon, but look for more rain and snow showers to return to the area starting as early as this evening, especially, west of the Rogue Valley. Another storm system will increase the coverage of rain and snow into tomorrow and keep winds gusty throughout the area.
A WIND ADVISORY is in effect for 8 AM-11 PM Friday for the Shasta Valley in Siskiyou County with possible wind gusts up to 50 mph. East of the Cascades, Eastern Klamath & Lake Counties are under a WIND ADVISORY from 11 AM to 11 PM Friday with gusts up to 50 mph.
As another surge of moisture moves into the region tonight into Friday. Snow levels will be low and the snow will be heavy for our higher elevations including the higher and lower mountain passes. Look for snow levels to drop down below 2,000' tonight. Through the day on Friday, heavy snow expected in our higher elevations. Snow levels will rise somewhat between 2,500'-3,000' in the afternoon with the daytime heating. The valleys and coast will see mainly rain, some of it heavy. Some thunder is even possible along coastal areas. Conditions will really start to deteriote into tomorrow evening as snow levels drop and temperaturs cool. Look for a changeover to snow all the way down into most valley locations Friday night. Some slushy, minor accumulations are possible in the Rogue Valley, mainly 1" or less. WINTER STORM WARNINGS & WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES have been issued for much of the viewing area for tonight through Friday evening. Our higher elevatons could see as much as 1-3 feet of snow, especially, for the coastal mountains and western Siskiyou Co. mountains. Lower elevations between 2,000 to 4,000 feet could see between 3-6" with as much as a foot of snow.
By Saturday  morning, the snow will have cleared out, but another storm system will bring rain and snow chances to the coast through the day and eventually working east into the Rogue Valley, Cascades and Siskiyou Co. through Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will remain cool and we'll likely see some more snow showers Saturday night into early Sunday.
The trend will be to dry out and start to warm up into Monday. A few showers could linger for coastal areas on Monday. Beyond Monday, brighter and warmer days with temperatures surging to around 70° by next ThursdaS
