A strong cold front will move through the area Thursday. If you are planning outdoor activities, expect breezy to windy conditions.
Heavy west swell will build Thursday afternoon, peak Thursday evening, and continue into Friday. Beachgoers should remain out of the surf zone and off of coastal rocks, headlands, and jetties. Breakers size and wave run-up will fluctuate, leading to the increased potential for waves to sweep debris and people into the cold ocean water.

  • A strong front will bring rain late tonight through Thursday night, heaviest along the coast and into the Cascades north of Crater Lake. Rain amounts of 1-3 inches will be common along with coast with 0.50-1.00 inch common elsewhere across the west side. Most places over the east side will have 0.25-0.50 of an inch. Rainfall rates on the coast and in western Siskiyou County may be high enough to cause localized burn scar flooding and the potential for mud/rock slides and debris flows. Snow levels will drop to 4000-5000 feet Thursday night into Friday with a few inches of snow possible over the Cascade/Siskiyou Mountains. Another storm will bring additional rain Friday night into Saturday.
