NWS says More Storms On The Way

A potent frontal system will push into the region Wednesday…and will then be followed by several very moist systems for the remainder of the week and into the weekend. The first front on Wednesday will bring light to moderate rain with several inches of snow possible above 4000 feet near Mount Shasta. In addition there is a chance
for strong and gusty winds…especially in the mountains and theShasta and Summer Lake valleys on Wednesday. Additional fronts Thursday through the weekend will bring a
considerable amount of moisture from the subtropical Pacific…and will therefore likely result in significant precipitation amounts. The locations with the highest potential for heavy rains will be the coast…western and southern Siskiyou County and south to southwest facing slopes. Rivers in these areas are likely to see significant rises. Snow levels should experience brief drops behind each subsequent cold front…but are expected to remain above the level of Highway passes during the periods of heaviest precipitation. Strong and gusty winds are also possible ahead of each passing cold front…so residents along the coast…across the mountains…and in south to north oriented valleys should stay tuned for potential wind headlines as well. Forecast confidence is high that this series of systems will impact the region…but there is low confidence on the specifics at this time. Stay tuned to the National Weather Service for further details as we head into this new round of active weather.
