WEATHER SUMMARY AND FORECAST DETAILS

FOR 10/14/2019 - from Rogueweather
A brief ridge of high pressure is building in the region today. This will give us sunny and warm days today and Tuesday. However, the big change to cloudy, cool, and wet conditions as a trough of low pressure and the fronts associated with it are going to be arriving soon for Southern Oregon and Northern California.
The first noticeable impact from the front will be windy conditions that will develop tomorrow. Look for winds gusting to 30 to 35 miles an hour at the coast, and for lower elevations areas east of the Cascades. Winds in the mountains and higher terrain east of the Cascades could gust to 40 miles an hour. All of that is just under the thresholds for wind buleltins to be issued. So no alerts at this time. The first front is pegged to hit the coast in the morning on Wednesday bringing the chance for rain, and work it's way east through the day. Snow levels will be quite high with the first front. Above 8000 feet. We will see more waves, or fronts coming through on Thursday and Friday morning. These are expected to be on the lighter side in terms of impacts. But, they will keep the chance for rain going......and they will also bring colder air in. Snow levels will be dropping getting to near 6000 feet on Thursday, and then near 5000 feet by Friday night. Friday night is also when we see the strongest surge of moisture coming in.
The data is showing the really heavy moisture going just to the north of us. But, we will still see area wide rain and snow. The highest amounts of rain will be at the coast, the Coast Range, and then the Cascades below 5000 feet due to terrain uplift. An inch or more of rain is expected. The valleys west of the Cascades could be seeing up to a helf inch of rain, and areas east of the Cascades could see a tenth to two tenths of an inch. Northern Klamath County may see slightly more. It is expected that the rain and snow chances will last through next weekend as the larger trough is going to be very slow to move east. But, the longer range data does indicate that will be the case. By the time we reach the middle of next week, it is expected now that we will be seeing a drying and warming trend..
