Showers and thunderstorms are expected again today, mainly west of the Cascades, with the heaviest precipitation expected in central and western Douglas County. After a long period of dry conditions it's very important for those traveling to use extra caution when encountering the first rainfall. Slow down and leave plenty of room between vehicles.
A low pressure system will approach the Pacific Northwest bringing showers across portions of southern Oregon and northern California. Thunderstorms have the best chances of forming from the Coast Range to just east of the Cascades. If storms form, a few of them may become strong with gusty winds and hail possible. Our RADAR at KMAX is undergoing refurbishment this week, and will not be available. If a warning is issued for your area, seek shelter. The good news is that the showers will start bringing some much needed rain to the area and to some of these fires.
