StormWatch 12 Forecast

Tonight: Any stray shower or thunderstorm that does occur in the area will taper off this evening. Most areas will experience mostly clear skies with calm conditions overnight. The coast will see areas of thick clouds and fog developing after the midnight hour due to the presence of a marine layer. Overnight low temperatures will fall into the upper 50s to low 60s west of the Cascades with temperatures dropping into the low to mid 50s east of the Cascades.  

Tomorrow:  On Wednesday afternoon and evening, we'll have a better chance at spotty to scattered thunderstorms for the eastside and Northern California. The Cascades and Siskiyous could also see a few thunderstorms. The severe threat looks low, but lightning will be a concern when it comes to new fire starts. The Rogue Valley will stay dry with mostly sunny skies. Skies will turn sunny with quiet weather along the coast. Highs tomorrow will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s in our westside valleys with upper 80s in the Klamath Basin and 60s to around 70° along the coast.

A RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for much of Klamath County and Lake County as well as western Siskiyou County from 2 PM - 11 PM on Wednesday. During this time, scattered thunderstorms may produce abundant lightning and gusty winds over dry fuels creating dangerous fire conditions. New fire starts are likely and new/existing fires could spread quickly. Use caution east of the Cascades on Wednesday.

Extended:  On Thursday, a cold front will bring some increased clouds, breezy winds and cooler temperatures to the region. A few showers will be possible near the coast. 

Starting Friday and into the weekend, temperatures will start rising again. The coast will see sunny skies and blustery offshore winds that'll help crank temperatures up. By Sunday, highs in Brookings could top out in the lower 80s. Inland temperatures by Sunday will heat up into the 90s for much of the region. Monday will be the hottest days with highs in Northern California in the upper 90s to lower 10s. We'll have to keep an eye on early next week for at least the slight chance for more thunderstorms.

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
