M.L. King Day: A few rain and snow showers have popped up west of the Cascades, but most everyone is dry. Temperatures today will be a bit cool, topping out in the 30s along and east of the Cascades, into the low to mid 40s in Northern California and the Rogue Valley, and into the lower 50s along the coast. Winds will remain light out of the north up to 10-15 MPH.
A FLOOD WARNING remains in effect for the Coquille River at Coquille in Coos County until 7 PM Wednesday. The river is expected to crest this morning at 22.7' with minor flooding forecasted. If you come across a roadway that is submerged in water, do not drive through it.
Tonight: Skies will clear tonight and lead to very cold overnight temperatures and possible freezing fog. Lows will drop into the teens in the Klamath Basin and in higher elevations in the Cascades, and into the mid to upper 20s in Northern California and west of the Cascades. The coast will bottom out in the upper 30s. Fog will likely develop in the Rogue Valley and in Siskiyou County.
Extended: Two very weak storm systems look to move in just north of us tomorrow night and into Wednesday. An isolated shower or two may clip northern portions of Jackson, Josephine and Klamath Counties, as well as along the coast. Any showers we so see will be very light and snow levels will rise by Wednesday to near 5,000'. Most places will stay dry as we head throughout the week. Fog chances will return nearly every morning this week and into the weekend, some very stubborn at times, especially west of the Cascades. By the second half of the week, we will see temperatures warm a bit into the upper 40s and lower 50s inland, and even the low to mid 60s along the coast under mostly sunny skies.
