LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: Even hotter weather is expected this afternoon with temperatures a few degrees warmer than Saturday. Most communities will remain sunny and dry again on Sunday, although we are tracking a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms in Northern California and in the Klamath Basin this afternoon. We are not expecting as widespread showers this weekend as we saw last weekend, but the isolated chance does exist. Highs today will top out in the low to mid 90s in our westside valleys as well as Northern California communities with areas east of the Cascades topping out in the upper 80s to low 90s. The coast will be a great place to go to beat the heat today with highs topping out in the upper 60s to low 70s. 

Tonight: Showers and thundershowers that develop this afternoon and early evening will begin to taper off after the sun goes down tonight. Most communities will experience mostly clear skies around the region this evening and overnight, although a few areas of patchy fog may develop on the coast. Temperatures will be mild to even warm tonight dropping into the low to mid 60s in our westside valleys and Northern California, with areas east of the Cascades bottoming out in the low to mid 50s. Winds will also continue to be a bit breezy into the evening and overnight hours, especially along the coast where gusts could reach 25 MPH.

Extended: A slight chance of showers and storms will linger in the Klamath Basin and Northern California through Monday. Otherwise, the entire region will see abundant sunshine and dry conditions for the duration of the workweek with temperatures staying in the 90s. As we get into the later stages of the next workweek, things look to possibly heat up into the upper 90s for many spots. We will continue to track this situation as we get further into 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.
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
