LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: A quiet day is expected for your Wednesday. We're seeing areas of fog in the morning, dense at times, near Grants Pass and through central Siskiyou County. The fog should lift by late morning, giving way to some sunshine this afternoon. Afternoon high temperatures west of the Cascades will climb into the 50s with 40s for highs in the Basin. The coast will remain with highs pushing 60° in some spots. We should see the marine layer overtake the coast this afternoon and evening, bringing a chance for some mist and drizzle. 

A HIGH SURF ADVISORY continues for the Curry County coast until 10 PM tonight for extremely dangerous breaker waves up to 26 feet. Waves may run very high up on beaches, even reaching adjacent parking lots and roads. Avoid beaches, if possible. 

Tonight: We'll stay mostly dry tonight under partly cloudy skies. Lows will drop tonight into the 20s and 30s inland and only into the 50s for the southern Oregon Coast.

Extended: The next storm arrives on tomorrow morning, bringing widespread rain, snow and wind back into our region. Snow levels look lower with this system. They'll likely start off near 6,000' as the wet weather moves in then fall down to as low as 4,500' in the afternoon then down to 3,500' Thursday evening as the storm moves out. We'll likely have some accumulating snow impact our Cascade passes, mainly the higher passes.

We dry out for Friday and most of Saturday. A duo of storms will bring more rain and snow to our region ahead of Christmas into early next week. Snow levels will be lower with these storms and winds could be very strong. The combination of rain, snow, and wind could make for some difficult travel ahead of Christmas, especially, Christmas Eve. We'll also see a general cooling trend with temperatures into next week.

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
