StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: After a warm and sticky start this morning, we'll see very warm temperatures and dry conditions for the afternoon. Expect a mix of sun and clouds across the region, hazy sunshine near Medford, with high temperatures in the middle to upper 80s in our westside valleys with 60s to near 70 degrees along the Oregon coast and upper 70s to around 80 degrees in the Klamath Basin. Winds will be a bit breezy along the coast with gusts up to 20 MPH out of the north.

Tonight: Skies will stay partly cloudy to mostly cloudy overnight with temperatures staying mild to warm. Lows will only drop into the mid to upper 50s west of the Cascades, into the mid 40s to lower 50s in the Klamath Basin, and into the low to mid 50s along the coast. 

Extended: Sunshine and summer-like heat will move in to end the workweek. Highs will push 90 degrees in our westside valleys with warmer weather across the rest of the region. Temperatures around the region will peak on Thursday and Friday with highs into the middle 90s for our westside valleys and Northern California and highs into the upper 80s and low 90s east of the Cascades. Apart from a stray shower or thunderstorm Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening in higher elevations, we should remain hot and dry.

We'll see a big change in our weather this weekend. We are closely following a storm system that will likely bring rain and even some thunderstorms to our region on Saturday. Some of the rain could be heavy at times along and west of the Cascades. More showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday and into Monday. With this more active weather pattern, temperatures will fall back into the 70s around the region.

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
