Forecast predicts more snow likely on local passes

Up to two more inches of snow are forecast to fall on mountain passes in Southern Oregon today, with up to half an inch possible on the valley floor.

The National Weather Service reported an Arctic cold front will continue to move through the area today. Snow levels are expected to drop from Sunday's 3,000 feet to the valley floors this afternoon, with light dustings expected.

"Locally, up to a half inch of snow is possible in the Rogue Valley in Jackson County and near Hayes Hill in Josephine County Monday," an advisory from the Weather Service reads.

Elevations between 1,500 and 2,500 feet could see up to an inch of snow by this afternoon, and elevations above about 2,500 feet, including the Siskiyou Pass, could see up to two inches. Highway 138 between Steamboat and Toketee Falls, Highway 62 near Prospect, Highway 226 between Tiller and Trail and Highway 140 in eastern Jackson County all could see new accumulations on the roads.
