LATEST FORECAST

StormWatch 12 Forecast

Today: The low-pressure system, bringing us all of this active weather, rapidly intensified overnight, meaning rain today will be heavy and winds will be gusty. By mid-morning, the moderate to heavy rain will be widespread. We usually don’t refer to days as “washouts,” but today will be just that. Heavy rainfall will be widespread throughout most of the day. Rain totals throughout the weekend could easily be above 1” in the westside valleys and the Cascades, with locally higher totals being possible in southern Siskiyou County. The Basin could anticipate rain totals over 1.5”, and the highest totals will be reserved for the coast. Above 2” could fall along the coast, with over 5” falling over the coastal ranges. In addition to heavy rain, snow could mix in elevations above 6,500 ft. Since the sun will be a non-factor today, it shouldn’t be any surprise that we’ll be cool. Highs on the westside and coast will struggle to make it out of the 50s, while highs on the eastside won’t have much luck making it past 50 degrees. The biggest impact today we’re concerned about are the very gusty winds. Several High Wind Warnings and Wind Advisories are in place.

A HIGH WIND WARNING has been issued for the Shasta Valley until 2 PM on Sunday afternoon. Winds from the south will be sustained between 35 to 45 mph, with winds gusting up to 60 mph. Be sure to secure any loose outdoor furniture and/or Halloween decorations.

A HIGH WIND WARNING has been issued for the Oregon coast from 2 AM to 11 AM Sunday, and for the higher terrain of eastern Klamath and Lake Counties from 2 AM Sunday to 2 AM Monday. South winds could gust up to 70 mph along the coast and east of the Cascades, especially in the Summer Lake area and Highway 31.

A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for the Rogue Valley from 2 AM to 11 AM Sunday and for lower elevations of eastern Klamath and Lake County from 2 AM Sunday to 2 AM Monday. Southeast winds could gust up to 50 mph in the Rogue Valley with south winds gusting up to 45 mph east of the Cascades.

A HIGH SURF WARNING has been issued for the Oregon coast from 5 PM Sunday to 5 AM Tuesday. Dangerously large breaking waves up to 35 feet are expected with the potential for beach erosion. This will create very hazardous conditions along the beaches and shorelines. A COASTAL FLOOD WARNING has also been issued for coastal Curry County from 5 PM Sunday to 7 AM Monday. Significant coastal flooding is expected.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued for western Siskiyou County in the McCash Fire and River Complex burn scars until 5 PM Sunday. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has also been issued for eastern Siskiyou County, including the Lava burn scar and Whitney Creek drainage along Highway 97, until 11 PM Sunday. These areas will see heavy rainfall through Sunday with rainfall rates of 3/4" or more per hour. The additional significant rainfall could lead to mudslides and debris flows in these areas.

Tonight: Widespread heavy rain will continue into this evening and into the overnight hours. Snow levels could drop down to 5,000 ft tonight, but major snow accumulations aren’t expected on mountain passes. The peaks of the Cascades have up to 10” of snow by the end of the weekend, while peaks of Siskiyou County and Lake County could have between 1 to 3 ft. Thankfully, winds will back off tonight, although still blustery. Winds could gust between 35 to 45 mph along the coast and on the eastside, while winds will be fairly calm in the westside valleys. Overnight lows along the coast and in the westside valleys of Southern Oregon will be in the mid-40s. It’ll cool down into the upper-30s in Siskiyou County, and lows will hangout around freezing on the eastside.

Extended: More rounds of wet weather are expected Monday into Tuesday with another storm system. It does look like our weather could quiet down a bit towards the end of the week, with much of the area seeing a break from rain and snow. Temperatures will also get a bit milder through the later portion of next week.

Tonight: The clear and warm day will give way to a clear and mild evening. Temperatures for inland areas this evening will stay solidly in the 50s and 60s through the 8 P.M. hour, meaning this will be a near picture perfect evening for a barbecue or Wednesday evening walk. Overnight low temperatures will also stay more mild than recently, falling into the mid to upper 30s in our westside valleys with mid to upper 20s east of the Cascades. The coast will see temperatures staying in the 40s through the overnight hours. 
Extended: Beyond Wednesday, we'll see a very gradual and slow cooling trend through the rest of the workweek, but temperatures will remain above average. Easter Weekend will start off dry, but clouds will increase and by Easter Sunday, we could be looking at some chances for rain for at least parts of our region. We'll be keeping a close eye on this system and your holiday weekend forecast. It's possible wet weather could continue into next week with cooler temperatures
