Lower elevations could see light dusting of snow this morning

 Posted: 8:05 AM December 14, 2012

The Rogue Valley floor could see a light dusting of snow this morning as a weak cold front moves into the region.

National Weather Service officials said cold air will be trapped at lower elevations, with could lead to a small "skiff" of snow. Around 1/10 of an inch fell in the Applegate, but not much else is expected for the day.

"There might be little couple showers through the day," said Brian Nieuwenhuis, NWS meteorologist, adding it will most likely be rain.

A small amount of accumulation is expected for the Illinois and Camas valleys, and on Interstate 5 between the Canyon Creek and Sexton passes. A high of 41 degrees is predicted.

The Oregon Department of Transportation is reporting snow flurries and spots of ice on the Siskiyou Summit and Highway 66. Motorists are advised to carry chains and should drive with extreme caution.

Check or call 511 for up-to-date road conditions in the area.
