Stormy Weather On The Way

Another period of stormy weather expected tonight through

A cold storm will drop southward into the Pacific northwest tonight
into Monday. This will bring a period of gusty south winds to the
coast and portions of Klamath and lake counties. Wind gusts could
reach 50 to 55 mph along the coast but as high as 60 to 65 mph
over the east side.

Light precipitation will develop this afternoon along the coast then
move inland tonight. Steadier precipitation will arrive Monday and
continue Monday night as a cold front pushes in from the north.
Snow levels initially around 1500 feet will rise to 2500 feet
Monday. There is some concern for a couple of inches of snow at
lower elevations near Sexton pass along Interstate 5 and perhaps
around Hayes Hill Monday morning before snow levels rise. Snow
amounts above 2500 feet late tonight through Tuesday morning could
be 6 to 10 inches.

The cold front will lift back northward as a warm front Tuesday
and another storm will take aim at the coast Tuesday night. This
system will have the potential to bring another round of very
strong winds and heavy rain to the coast with a period of moderate
to heavy precipitation to The Mount Shasta region. Please stay
tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and the National Weather Service
office in Medford for updates regarding this developing situation.
