Rain showers will be ongoing today …although they will be light and scattered. Most of the showers that do develop will be along and west of the Cascades. Siskiyou County will be mostly dry with partly cloudy skies through Friday. Temperatures are going to stay cool today and tomorrow.
In fact, even cooler air will arrive tonight and drop snow levels from 5,000′ to 4,500′ overnight. A winter weather advisory is in effect above 4,500′ from 5pm tonight through 11am tomorrow for the Cascades and Siskiyous. Another disturbance will move in Friday night through Saturday, bringing more moisture and some rain and snow. A slushy snow is likely along Highway 140 overnight and a couple inches near Crater Lake and Diamond Lake.
Showers will fall again through Saturday but drier air will move in Saturday night. This will allow for frost to develop into Sunday morning across the Rogue, Illinois and Applegate Valleys. After the cool morning, the sun will come out and mild afternoon temperatures are anticipated.
This will be the beginning of a drying and warming trend into next week. High temperatures will again climb well above average, warming to 80 in the Basin and 90 over the West Side towards the middle of the week.
