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.
