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.
