LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: We are mostly dry and  mild heading into your Thursday with a chance for very spotty, light showers this afternoon along and east of the Cascades. Expect a mix of sun and clouds today with afternoon highs in the lower 60s in the Rogue Valley, mid to upper 50s along the coast and in Northern California, and the upper 40s and lower 50s in the Cascades and Klamath Basin. Winds inland will remain light today, but could gust up to 20 MPH along the coast. 

A BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT has been issued for the Curry County coast from 2 PM today until 5 AM tomorrow for the elevated risk of sneaker waves, especially for west and northwest facing beaches. Sudden and unusually high beach run-ups are possible resulting in an increased risk of drowning or injury to those in or near the water. Use extreme caution on beaches and don't turn your back to the ocean. 

Tonight: Expect clouds to gradually move back into the region ahead of our next storm system. Otherwise, we will remain mostly dry tonight with more seasonal temperatures on tap. Lows will drop into the upper 20s and lower 30s in the Klamath Basin and Cascades, in the upper 30s and lower 40s in the Rogue Valley and Northern California, and into the mid 40s along the coast. 

Extended: We're tracking a more potent system set to arrive throughout the day Friday. Expect rain and mountain snow to spread into the region to end the week with snow levels starting around 6,500' before dropping tomorrow night down to 3,500'. Higher passes could see some minor accumulations of 2-4" with less than 1" of snow at the Siskiyou Summit by Saturday morning. Spotty showers will linger on Saturday with cooler temperatures left behind. Sunday is looking brighter and warmer before another system will bring more rain and snow to start next week.  Next week is looking unsettled with more rain and snow Tuesday into Wednesday with likely some lower snow levels, too.

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
