LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: Rainfall will continue to impact the area this morning before showers become more hit and miss this afternoon. Much of the region could even see a few sun breaks this afternoon as well. This break in heavy rainfall will be short lived, however, as more widespread wet weather will work its way into Southern Oregon and Northern California by Sunday evening. High temperatures today will top out in the low 50s for our westside valleys, low to mid 40s in the Klamath Basin, upper 40s to low 50s in Northern California, with mid 50s along the coast. Rainfall amounts through the weekend will likely be between 2-4" for the coast and coastal mountains. Areas farther inland will still see some beneficial rainfall with between 0.50" to 1" in the Rogue Valley and 0.25" to 0.50" in the Klamath Falls area.

Tonight: The wet weather that works in on Sunday evening will continue through the overnight hours. This rainfall will be heavy at times. Snow levels are going to fall to 4,500' or so overnight tonight, meaning we could see some snowfall over high mountain passes such as Lake of the Woods and Diamond Lake. Overnight low temperatures will fall into the upper 30s to low 40s for our westside valleys, mid to upper 30s in Northern California, and low to mid 30s in the Klamath Basin. 

Extended: Precipitation overnight tonight will continue through Monday. We will continue to see periods of precipitation, heavy at times, through the middle part of the workweek. Snow levels will hover around 4,500' through the duration of the week, so pass travel over our higher mountain passes like Lake of the Woods and Diamond Lake could become tricky over the next several days. We will continue to monitor snow levels and road conditions very closely on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Shower activity will begin to taper off on Thursday, and mostly dry weather looks to return as we head into 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
