LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Tonight: Quiet weather into this evening. It's looking great for all of those high school football games. Clear and chilly tonight with lows in the 30s and 40s. We'll have a few 20s still east of the Cascades.

Tomorrow: Hazy sunshine with more warm temperatures for your Saturday. Highs will climb into the 70s and 80s through much of the region. We could break the record of 83° in Medford set back in 1987.

Extended: The sunny and warm weather will carry through the weekend. Not as warm for Sunday, but temperatures will still be well above average for this time of the year with plenty of sunshine. This is looking like a fantastic weekend for all your outdoor plans. Take advantage of the warm weather because this likely could be our last 80s in the Rogue Valley for this  year. We have some changes in store for next week. Monday will be quiet and warm, but we have a pair of storm systems that will bring the chance for some much need rain showers to the region. The first system is now trending drier, but we'll still have the chance for a few hit and miss showers, mainly along and west of the Cascades. Wednesday will be quiet with a mix of sun and clouds. The second system is more potent and will have a better chance at producing more widespread shower activity for our are on Thursday.

Along with the showers will be mostly cloudy skies and much cooler and near-average temperatures. 

Fire Danger remains MODERATE for southwest Oregon.

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
