Signs have been posted along several access areas along the river.
  • A Blue-Green Algae Health Advisory remains in effect for Agency Lake. Agency Lake is located just north of Upper Klamath Lake near Klamath Falls along Highway 97 in Klamath County. Water monitoring on the lake has confirmed the presence of high levels of blue-green algae and associated toxins that can be harmful to people and animals. Swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities, such as water skiing and power boating, should be avoided in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, contact with cells from a bloom can cause skin irritation and a red, puffy rash in individuals with skin sensitivities, or those who develop rashes easily.

An upper level low pressure trough (Shaded “U” shape area with blue arrows) is sending more storms our way.  You can see on the days 1,2 & 3 graphic that behind the cold front the airflow is bringing colder air and still the potential for a bit of snow, little or none expected on the valley floor. The graphic for days 3-7 shows the typical parade of Winter-like storms that bring valley rain and mountain snow. There will be continued snow on the Cascade Passes but snow levels will continue to rise and fall. Willamette Pass Ski, Hoodoo ski area, and Mt. Ashland have all started their ski season. For mountain snow conditions check out their websites or give them a call.

Advisories:

  • A FROST ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT UNTIL 8 AM WEDNESDAY FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL OREGON COAST, THE CURRY COUNTY COAST, EASTERN CURRY COUNTY, AND JOSEPHINE COUNTY.
  • A FREEZE WARNING IS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM UNTIL 7 AM WEDNESDAY FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL OREGON COAST.
  • A FREEZE WARNING IS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING UNTIL 9 AM WEDNESDAY FOR CENTRAL DOUGLAS COUNTY.
  • A Permanent Health Advisory remains in effect for the South Umpqua River and Lawson Bar. Pools in the bedrock along the rivers edge are known to develop Blue-green Algae (cyanobacterial) blooms that can be harmful to pets and people if accidental ingestion occurs. Signs have been posted along several access areas along the river.
  • A Blue-Green Algae Health Advisory remains in effect for Agency Lake. Agency Lake is located just north of Upper Klamath Lake near Klamath Falls along Highway 97 in Klamath County. Water monitoring on the lake has confirmed the presence of high levels of blue-green algae and associated toxins that can be harmful to people and animals. Swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities, such as water skiing and power boating, should be avoided in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, contact with cells from a bloom can cause skin irritation and a red, puffy rash in individuals with skin sensitivities, or those who develop rashes easily.

Here is my weekly weather quiz question for the last time. What is “Alluvium?” Here is the correct answer. Alluvium: Sediments deposited by erosional processes, usually by streams.

The first person to post the correct answer will win a week of free personalized weather forecasts tailored to your needs.  Good luck.

An upper level low pressure trough (Shaded “U” shape area with blue arrows) is sending more storms our way.  A frontal system pushes into the Pacific Northwest as you can see on the days 1,2 & 3 graphic bringing colder air and the potential for snow. The graphic for days 3-7 shows the typical parade of Winter-like storms that bring rain and snow. There will be continued snow on the Cascade Passes but snow levels will continue to rise and fall. Willamette Pass, Hoodoo ski area, and Mt. Ashland have all started their ski season. For mountain snow conditions check out their websites or give them a call.

Advisories:

  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM UNTIL NOON MONDAY FOR THE COAST RANGE OF NORTHWEST OREGON.
  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 4AM UNTIL 1 PM MONDAY ABOVE 500 FT. FOR THE GREATER PORTLAND METRO AREA.
  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM UNTIL 2 PM MONDAY FOR THE WESTERN COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, THE CENTRAL COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, AND THE UPPER HOOD RIVER VALLEY.
  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 4 AM UNTIL 4 PM MONDAY THE NORTHERN OREGON CASCADE FOOTHILLS, AND THE CASCADE FOOTHILLS IN LANE COUNTY.
  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM MONDAY FOR THE NORTHERN OREGON CASCADES AND THE CASCADES IN LANE COUNTY.
  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM TONIGHT FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL CASCADES, THE SOUTHERN OREGON CASCADES,  THE SISKIYOU MOUNTAINS, THE KLAMATH BASIN, NORTHERN AND EASTERN KLAMATH COUNTY, WESTERN LAKE COUNTY.
  • A Permanent Health Advisory remains for the South Umpqua River and Lawson Bar. Pools in the bedrock along the rivers edge are known to develop Blue-green Algae (cyanobacterial) blooms that can be harmful to pets and people if accidental ingestion occurs. Signs have been posted along several access areas along the river.
  • A Blue-Green Algae Health Advisory remains in effect for Agency Lake. Agency Lake is located just north of Upper Klamath Lake near Klamath Falls along Highway 97 in Klamath County. Water monitoring on the lake has confirmed the presence of high levels of blue-green algae and associated toxins that can be harmful to people and animals. Swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities, such as water skiing and power boating, should be avoided in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, contact with cells from a bloom can cause skin irritation and a red, puffy rash in individuals with skin sensitivities, or those who develop rashes easily.

An upper level low pressure trough (Shaded “U” shape area with blue arrows) is sending more storms our way.  A frontal system will push into the Pacific Northwest today as you can see on the days 1,2 & 3 graphic. The graphic for days 3-7 shows the typical parade of storms that bring our Autumn rain. There will be continued snow on the Cascade Passes but snow levels will continue to rise and fall. Willamette Pass is open. Hoodoo ski area plans to open today. Mt. Ashland announced Wednesday that they are starting their ski season early- this Sunday December 4th. It looks like the ski season has a good chance of starting reasonably early this year. For mountain snow conditions check out their websites or give them a call.

Advisories:

  • A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM UNTIL 4 PM SUNDAY FOR THE NORTHERN OREON CASCADES AND FRIOM 4 AM UNTIL 4 PM FOR THE CASCADES IN LANE COUNTY.
  • A HIGH SURF ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM UNTIL NOON TODAY FOR THE NORTH OREGON COAST AND THE CENTRAL OREGON COAST.
  • A BEACH HAZARD STATEMENT IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM TODAY FOR THE SOUTH CENTRAL OREGON COAST AND THE CURRY COUNTY COAST. THAT MEANS LARGE BREAKERS ARE EXPECTED MOST OF THE DAY ON SATURDAY WITH HIGHEST POTENTIAL FOR DANGEROUS WAVE RUNUP ON BEACHES LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON. JETTIES AND SURF ZONES WILL BE ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS.
  • A Permanent Health Advisory remains for the South Umpqua River and Lawson Bar. Pools in the bedrock along the rivers edge are known to develop Blue-green Algae (cyanobacterial) blooms that can be harmful to pets and people if accidental ingestion occurs. Signs have been posted along several access areas along the river.
  • A Blue-Green Algae Health Advisory remains in effect for Agency Lake. Agency Lake is located just north of Upper Klamath Lake near Klamath Falls along Highway 97 in Klamath County. Water monitoring on the lake has confirmed the presence of high levels of blue-green algae and associated toxins that can be harmful to people and animals. Swallowing water while swimming or inhaling water droplets as a result of high-speed water activities, such as water skiing and power boating, should be avoided in areas where blooms are identified. Although toxins are not absorbed through the skin, contact with cells from a bloom can cause skin irritation and a red, puffy rash in individuals with skin sensitivities, or those who develop rashes easily.
