Snow dusts Crater Lake

 Posted: 9:05 AM June 17, 2014

In the midst of Southern Oregon's drought and low stream flows, Crater Lake National Park received an overnight dusting of snow Monday, the National Weather Service reported.

"It's unusual in June, but it's not unheard of," meteorologist Tom Wright said. "It was just basically a skiff. It didn't amount to much."

The park's high temperature today is not expected to exceed a chilly 40 degrees, with a 20 percent chance for additional snowfall. Highs are expected warm back up to the high 50s and low 60s the rest of the week.

Recent below-average temperatures in the Rogue Valley are expected to jump back up this week, too. Today's high of 74 degrees is expected to tack on 13 more Wednesday, and may even reach the low 90s by Thursday.

"We're going to warm up pretty quickly here," Wright said.
