StormWatch 12 Forecast

Tonight:  After some wild weather this afternoon and evening, thunderstorms continue to diminish in Northern California and east of the Cascades. A cold front will approach the coast tonight and a few light showers or drizzle are possible in Curry County by morning along with an increase in clouds. Inland areas will see partly cloudy to mostly clear skies tonight.. Overnight low temperatures will be cooler than the past several nights, dropping into the 50s for areas west of the Cascades and mid to upper 40s east of the Cascades.   

Tomorrow: The cold front that approaches the coast tonight will bring some increased clouds, breezy winds and cooler temperatures to the region on Thursday. High temperatures on Thursday will be the coolest high temperatures since the early stages of July, with daytime highs only reaching the lower 80s for our westside valleys and 70s to around 80° for the Klamath Basin. The coast will continue to have at least a chance for showers, mainly in the morning.

Extended: Starting Friday and into the weekend, temperatures will start rising again. The coast will see sunny skies and blustery offshore winds that'll help crank temperatures up. By Sunday, highs in Brookings could top out in the lower 80s. Inland temperatures by Sunday will heat up into the 90s for much of the region. Monday will be the hottest days with highs in our westside valleys in the upper 90s to lower 100s. We'll have to keep an eye on early next week for at least the slight chance for more thunderstorms. Temperatures will cool towards the middle of the 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
