Forecasters say the weather in our region will become very active over at least the next 7-10 days as storm after storm heads toward our region. Storms are currently lined up across the Pacific stretching back to Japan according to forecasters in Medford.
The first storm in the series is currently moving inland and is expected to cover Klamath Falls in 1-2 inches of wet snow starting this evening. An additional storm Friday following by a stronger storm on Saturday are expected. After that, there is no end to the storms in sight even on the extended forecast.
Several winter weather advisories for the mountain areas are in place for the approaching storm today, and more will likely be issued in the coming days.

More snow is on the way Wednesday through Thursday. Looks like the bulk of the snow will fall above 4000 feet with the snow coming down as low as 3500 feet. Note the Chemult and Crescent area on highway 97 will see around 4 to 6 inches of snow. Most of the Cascades will likely see 8 inches of snow with 12 inches being less likely. Also, Siskiyou Summit will probably see some snow as that pass’ elevation exceeds the snow level of 3500 feet.
