Slushy roads today, patchy ice possible overnight

The area of low pressure responsible for the snow and slushy conditions is located off the coast of Northern California/Southwest Oregon. This feature will continue to push some snow our direction, but mainly over the mountains. There is a chance for a passing shower from time to time, but the bulk of the snow has ended over the High Desert.  The areas closest to the mountains did get around 3”, Sisters measured 3.5” of snow, but generally most other locations were in the 1 – 3” range.

Tonight, the temperature readings will bottom out in the low 30s so some black ice may form and the slush may ice up. Be aware of the hazardous icy conditions possible overnight, especially secondary roads and the mountain passes.

Tuesday will be on the dry side under partly cloudy skies. Snow is likely over the mountains and there will be some happy snow riders once again. The temperature patterns will be similar to an early February regime as highs reach the low to middle 40s and low dip to the middle and upper 20s.

Wednesday will once again allow for some mountain snow and partly to mostly cloudy skies at lower elevations. Some models hint at more light snow over the high desert areas but not much of a consensus between them about that.

Thursday will see a passing snow shower before sunrise but should clear out in the afternoon. Temps will not support much in the way of measurable snow each of the next several days.

Currently the weekend looks dry and slightly milder with highs in the upper 40s.
