Today: Valley fog is pretty thick this morning. Expect mostly cloudy skies for today. Temperatures will climb into the 30s and 40s for the Cascades and Basin. We'll be in the 40s and 50s west of the Cascades. Winds will be breezy and pick up again later today into tonight. Most of the day will be dry, but a few isolated showers will be possible during the day. A better chance for showers into Saturday evening ahead of the next storm system.

A HIGH WIND WARNING has been issued for the Oregon coast from 10 PM tonight through 4 PM tomorrow. South winds could gust as high as 55 to 65 mph.

A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for the Shasta Valley from 4 PM today through 10 PM tomorrow, for Curry & Josephine Co. from 10 PM tonight through 4 PM Sunday, the Rogue Valley from 4 PM today through 4 PM tomorrow, and also the Klamath Basin from 10 PM tonight through 10 PM tomorrow.

A HIGH WIND WATCH has been issued for the Shasta Valley for later tonight into tomorrow. There is concern for stronger gusts up to 60 to 70 mph tomorrow.

Extended: The next storm system will gradually spread wet weather back into the region throughout the day Sunday. We're also expecting some more strong winds with this system, but higher snow levels as a whole. Snow showers will linger for the Basin and Cascades into Monday. The coast will also likely see some lingering rain showers for Monday.

A HIGH SURF ADVISORY continues until 4 AM Sunday for the coast with breakers possible of 25 feet. A stronger west swell has prompted a HIGH SURF WARNING for the coast from 4 AM Sunday to 4 PM Monday where breakers of 32 feet are possible. There's also an enhanced risk for sneaker waves.

It looks like another storm will bring rain and snow to our region for Tuesday. Snow levels will remain on the higher side and temperatures look mild. It gets warmer through the middle of the week ahead of another possible storm system to bring wet weather to our region next Friday.

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. 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
