LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: A storm system will impact the region today, mainly after 12 PM. We'll likely see scattered showers along the coast and in the coastal mountains in Curry & Josephine Counties as we move into the afternoon. Rainfall amounts could total between 1/10" to 1/4", increasing the further westward. For the Rogue Valley and Medford, we'll be lucky to see a few sprinkles. East of the Cascades will stay dry. Afternoon high temperatures will be 10 degrees cooler than Monday with highs in the 60s with 50s along the coast and in our higher elevations. Gusty winds are expected with this front pushing through the region up to 35 MPH at times. 

Tonight: Rain will begin to taper off this evening, giving way to mostly cloudy skies and overnight lows into the 30s and 40s. Winds will remain out of the south up to 10 MPH. 

Extended: Look for cooler temperatures with a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday. Another system is set to the Pacific Northwest Thursday into Friday. Most of the energy and rainfall will stay to our north, but it's possible we could see see a few showers for the coast and the Cascades later Thursday evening. We'll see warming temperatures late in the week and into the weekend, with Saturday looking very warm. Highs could potentially push 80 degrees for portions of the westside.

By Sunday, a more potent system could impact our area, bringing the best chance at widespread rain for the region. We're closely tracking any changes to the forecast models and will updated the extended forecast accordingly. Expect cooler days behind Sunday's system to start next week.

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.

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.

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.
