Winter weather will continue throughout much of the day today. Snow levels this morning were below 500', even at sea-level at times with snow being reported at Langois and Brookings. As we move forward throughout the day, here is what the StormWatch 12 Weather Team is forecasting..

What To Expect:

Wet weather is widespread this morning with snow levels near 500'. Some wintery mix has been reported on US-101 in Curry County this morning, so snow levels at times may approach sea-level. The Siskiyou Summit, Sexton Summit, and Cascade passes at Diamond Lake and Lake of the Woods are seeing heavy snow and low visibility.

Today is looking cold with spotty snow showers throughout the afternoon across much of the region. Confidence is high that all of our lower and higher passes in the region will be impacted by accumulating snow and likely difficult to dangerous travel.

Winter Weather Alerts: 

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for areas west of the Cascades in Jackson, Josephine and Curry Counties above 2,000' until 7 PM, Northeast Siskiyou County, Klamath & Lake Counties, Western Siskiyou County below 2,000', and for the Cascade and Siskiyou Mountains until 10 PM tonight. These areas will continue to see accumulating snow and poor travel conditions.

 Forecast Snow Totals:

Here's a breakdown of forecast snow throughout Monday...

Higher Cascades & Siskiyous Passes & Coastal Mountains: 3-6", locally higher amounts (I-5 Siskiyou Summit, Hwy 140, Crater & Diamond Lake)

Lower Passes & Foot Hills: 1-2" (I-5 Sexton Summit & Canyon Mt. Pass, Hwy 199 Hayes Hill, Jacksonville Hill, Hwy 97 @ Mt Hebron & Chemult

Klamath Basin: 1-3", locally higher amounts

Valleys of Siskiyou County: T-1" (Yreka, Montague, Happy Camp)

Higher Elevations of Siskiyou County: 2-4", locally higher amounts (Mt. Shasta Ski Park, I-5, Hwy 89 & Hwy 97 near Mt. Shasta and Tennant.

Westside Valleys & Coast: Trace amounts with little to no accumulation.
