LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: After a chilly start this morning, we are expecting a very warm and pleasant afternoon across the region. Highs temperatures today will top out in the low to mid 70s in our westside valleys and Northern California and into the upper 60s to lower 70s in the Klamath Basin. Breezy at times, the coast will feature temperatures in the 60s to around 70°.

Tonight: Skies will remain clear again tonight along with chilly overnight temperatures. Lows in our westside valleys will fall into the mid to upper 30s for many, into the low to mid 20s in the Kalamth Basin and into the upper 40s to lower 50s along the coast. Winds will remain light inland, so expect patchy frost east of the Cascades by Thursday morning.

Extended: Mornings will stay chilly, but do expect more sunny and warm weather on your Thursday. High temperatures will remain a good 10 to 15 degrees above where we should be for the end of October. A storm system on Friday will impact the Pacific Northwest, but we expect Southern Oregon and Northern California will remain dry right into Halloween weekend. Temperatures will drop just a bit Friday into Saturday, but highs will still be above-average. Halloween is looking quite pleasant with mostly sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. The evening will be cool with skies clearing and perfect viewing of the Full Blue Moon Halloween night.

Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour as we end Daylight Saving Time on Sunday!

As we head into November, we'll likely stay dry with more warmer-than-average temperatures. The next possibility for rain could occur on Election Day or into your Wednesday. We'll be watching that system closely, and you can expect changes to the forecast.

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
