Weather Summary - 2/13
Brought to you by:
Another weak system is going to come through our area and the larger region as a whole tomorrow. Ahead of that we have a beautiful day for all to enjoy. The next system will be very much like the one that went through Sunday......right down to the possibility of valley floor snow again tomorrow morning. And, just as we saw on Sunday, not expecting any accumulation for the valley floors if snow does happen. Just flakes coming down to enjoy. And also as was the case Sunday, snow levels will be going up during the day. There will be accumulating snow of about 2 - 5 inches above 2500 feet. East of the Cascades snowfall amounts will also not amount to much. Maybe an inch for the Klamath Basin and valleys of Northeastern Siskiyou County and Modoc County. Northern Klamath County from Chiloquin on up, could see up to 5 inches. But, for this time of the year, that is not much. And, not expecting serious travel issues to develop.
We will then see two really nice days in Thursday and Friday. Going to be a lot of sunshine. Might see morning fog developing in Coos and Douglas Counties.
When we reach Saturday, that is when winter makes a pronounced return to our area. It will not be any one big severe storm at this point. But, we are going to be in a very unsettled and cold pattern. Showers will be the expectation. But how heavy will they be? That is uncertain. But, if we get into sustained heavy shower activity, then we could see snow totals start to really add up for the mountains. The data is also very clear that we are going to be seeing snow levels really drop. They will be getting as low as 500 feet in the mornings as we reach next week. They "rise" to around 1500 feet during the day. To put this in clearer terms.....it looks like Roseburg and Grants Pass will be seeing snow in the mornings and then have the chance for rain and snow mixed in the afternoons. Medford stands a chance to see snow last all day.
What is the potential for significant valley floor accumulations? Not terribly high right now. But, we are quite aways out still and we will be getting a much better idea on that as we get closer in time. It is very clear that travel is going to be impacted for all highway s into and out of Southern Oregon and Northern California from Sunday through at least the middle of next week. If you have travel plans.....you best plan accordingly for it.
