Snow levels are dropping and heavy snow and gusty winds are making for some treacherous travel through many of the mountain passes, including I-5. A changover to snow is possible in the valley before this area of precipitaition moves east and dissipates later tonight after 2 AM. Any accumulations would mainly be up in the foothills or in Ashland.
WINTER STORM WARNINGS & WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES remain in effect for much of the viewing area until later tonight. Locations above 2,000 feet west of the Cascades could see as much as 5-10 additional inches of snow, with the Cascades and Siskiyous could see up to 20 inches. WINTER STORM WARNINGS will continue through Saturday for the coastal mountains of Curry and Josephine Counties as another storm system will bring heavy snow to those areas on Saturday.
By early Saturday morning, the snow will have cleared out a bit. There could be some slick spots from wet roads freezing tonight with temperaatures falling below freezing overnight. Another storm system will bring rain and snow to the coast in the morning 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. Lingering showers possible Sunday with temperatures still well below average.
The trend will be to dry out and start to warm up into Monday. Beyond Monday, brighter and warmer days with temperatures surging to around 70° by next Thursday.
