Local Alert Weather, Thu. AM, 1.31.19


Good Thursday Morning, Everyone…
Today can be viewed as the calm before the storm. A few thin clouds will be accompanied by SE breezes at 5-10 mph and daytime highs in the low to mid 50’s. The leading edge of the advancing storm will thicken our clouds through the evening and deliver a 30% chance of a rain/snow mix tonight. Tonight’s lows will dip to freezing and a little below. Breezes will remain gentle out of the SE.
With highs reaching the mid to upper 40’s, rain is likely much of the day Friday. SE winds will pick up to 10-15 mph and gust as high as 20-25 mph Friday afternoon. Look for mixed showers Friday night as lows drop to the low to mid 30’s. Storm activity will continue for the weekend. Expect to see rain during the day with highs in the low 40’s and mixed showers overnight with lows down around freezing. Snow showers will taper off Monday and leave us with plenty of cold air. Mostly cloudy skies Monday will be accompanied by a slight chance of snow showers and highs in the low 30’s. Partly cloudy skies Tuesday will bring an even weaker chance of snow showers and another cold day. Look for partly cloudy skies by the middle of the week with highs in the mid to upper 30’s.
This weekend winter storm will make mountain driving treacherous. It will be quite the boon for the ski resorts, however. Mt Bachelor is expecting to receive 12-24″ of fresh snow between Friday and Monday! This will be a wind driven snow for much of the weekend. Expect visibility to be severely reduced at times.
