LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Tonight: The weak storm system that has provided us with some very light rain showers today will exit our area tonight, leading to mostly clear skies around the region. With mostly clear skies expected, overnight low temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than last night. Lows will fall into the upper 30s to low 40s for areas west of the Cascades overnight, with low temperatures bottoming out in the mid to upper 20s in the Klamath Basin. Winds will be generally light around the region tonight, although the coast could experience gusts up to 20 MPH. 

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny skies and seasonable temperatures will be experienced around the region on Monday. Patchy areas of morning fog will lift as we go into the late morning and early afternoon hours, and the entire region will be subject to a mostly sunny autumn afternoon. High temperatures on Monday will top out in the low 70s for our westside valleys and in Northern California with highs reaching the low to mid 60s in the Klamath Basin and on the coast. Much of the region will once again experience some haze tomorrow afternoon due to light winds and lingering smoke from prescribed burns. 

Extended: Following our mostly sunny Monday, Tuesday will be dry as well, but we're keeping an eye on a series of storm systems that could bring rain chances to our region for the middle and later stages of the week. At this point, the first system is set to impact the coast on Wednesday morning  before moving inland on Wednesday evening. This system on Wednesday will be the first of multiple systems to impact the region. Showery conditions will be maintained from the middle part of the workweek through next weekend.

Stay with StormWatch 12 for updates on your forecast on-air and online...Much colder today behind the cold front. 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
