Local Alert Weather, Fri. AM, 1.18.19


Good Friday Morning, Everyone…
Storm activity pressing in from the Pacific will bring rain to us and heavy snow to the Cascades. Highs today will be in the low to mid 40’s. Gusty southerly winds at 5-15 mph will stay with us through the night ahead. Warm air drawn in with this system will keep our overnight lows very mild, also in the low to mid 40’s. More rain tonight will be accompanied by southerly winds at 10-15 mph.
This system will bring us rain and mixed showers all weekend. Highs will be in the mid to upper 40’s and lows will be in the upper 20’s to mid 30’s.
This also promises to be the biggest snow event we have seen in the Cascades so far this season. In the next 24 hours Mt. Bachelor could see 12-20″ of fresh snow added to the base. By the time we get through Sunday night that total could grow to as much as 2-3 feet of new snow. This storm will break in time for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday. Some snow will continue to fall in the mountains, but the High Desert will go into the holiday under partly cloudy skies.
More clearing will occur carrying us through the middle of next week with highs in the upper 40’s.
