LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

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.

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
