A storm today is expected to bring heavy rain to the southern Oregon coast. Forecasters say higher elevations in Curry County could see eight inches of rain, and Brookings along the coast could get three inches - raising the possibility of mudslides and debris flows.
Meteorologist Shad Keen of the National Weather Service tells the Medford Mail Tribune the storm is expected to pick up Thursday afternoon and last into Friday.
He says snow levels will remain high, but strong winds could make for difficult travel for semitrailers in the mountain passes in Southern Oregon.
Inland, he says, the rainfall won't be so great, but streets and roads could flood in Ashland and Medford.
The storm is expected to be less intense along the northern coast.
