Slippery Monday Morning Commute in Southern Oregon & Northern California

After two powerful winter storms this weekend, we will see things quieting down into Monday, but roads could still be slick and icy Monday morning as temperatures fall tonight below freezing.

Rain and snow showers will end overnight. With temperatures expected to fall below freezing, any wet or snowy roads in those areas could become icy to start off your Monday. In our higher elevations, roads will continue to be treacherous tonight into Monday morning. 

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been extended for Southern Oregon to above 1,500' through 9 AM Monday where accumulating snow and difficult traveling conditions are expected too. Snow accumulations will be highest in our higher elevations with 2-8" above 2,500' with locally higher amounts over 12". Because temperatures will fall below freezing in these areas with a threat for icy roads into the morning, that's why the advisory has been extended through 9 AM even though snow will end overnight.

Plan now to avoid traveling during these storms this weekend. If you must travel, prepare to use extreme caution. Stock an emergency kit in your car with tire chains, a flashlight, batteries, blankets, food, water and medications.
