Winter has returned. No other way to describe this. Not when highways in the Cascades have packed snow on them as they do this morning and spots of ice are being reported on I 5 in the Siskiyous. We are not seeing steady state precipitation develop. What is happening is much more showery and that looks to continue today. Satellite imagery shows a very broad low parked over the Northwest with embedded shortwaves of energy rotating around it. As those shortwaves come through, shower activity is going to pick up. The showers will be capable of producing the breeziest conditions and the heavier ones could even generate some small hail. Snow levels will remain very low for late in May. This morning they are going to be near 2000 feet at times. By this afternoon they rise to around 4000 feet. Accumulating snow is going to be likely mostly in the Cascades from Lake of the Woods north, and especially around the Crater Lake and Diamond Lake areas. Anybody with travel or outdoor recreation plans needs to bear that in mind.
Tonight will see clouds lingering over the valleys west of the Cascades and north of the Siskiyous with some showers possible. But, east of the Cascades and south into Northern California clearing is expected and this will bring another round of freezing temperatures in those locations. Agricultural interests, and gardeners will want to protect their vegetation as this will be a killing freeze if your do not take protective measures.
We do see improvement now for the holiday weekend. There is going to be sunshine around and we will get back to normal to slightly above normal temperatures for Sunday and Monday. We are not going to lose the chances for showers completely however. It will turn into a slight chance for the Rogue Valley and a chance situation for the Coast, from Roseburg north, and in the Mountains especially the Cascades from Crater Lake north.
Looking at the data, another system is poised to enter the Northwest on Tuesday bringing clouds and the chance for rain, but at this time it looks MUCH warmer than the system we are seeing now.

IN THE NEWS:
The Department of the Interior has released a draft ruling that would drop the Grey Wolf from the protection of the federal government and return management of wolves back to the states. Wolf population numbers have more than reached the numbers sought when reintroduction programs were launched in the early 1990s. Predictably, animal rights groups and envirnomental extremists oppose this. However, the numbers of wolves are well above the numbers sought in the reintroduction plan that both animal rights groups and the environmental extremists participated in.
