The latest forecast information and updates for the strong Tuesday-Wednesday storm. Updated at 5:45pm Monday.
According to the NWS Medford: This incoming low is unprecedented in its strength and track. It is also historic because storms of this magnitude have not been observed on this track in the last 40 years or more!
The above graphic shows the projected path of the low as it makes landfall. Each of the “L’s” in the center of the low represent a forecast model projection. This gives forecasters high confidence in the accuracy of predicted conditions for this storm, because there is no longer a large difference in the forecast models.
Since this morning: Some adjustments to the forecast for the local Klamath Falls area are a slight decrease in projected wind gusts and an increase in snow amounts. Keep in mind that a slight change in the storm path will make a big change in the conditions we will see.

As the storm moves to our east, expect much colder temperatures as a cold air mass moves in. The NWS is watching the potential for another storm this weekend but it does not appear to be as strong as the inbound storm Tuesday at the present time.
