Default How much does it snow in Grants Pass?

Just, on average? Does it melt off fast or stick around?

THANK YOU!

You will see several snowy episodes in Grants Pass every winter, but it normally melts off in a few days. You can usually get into Medford, but I-5 north is often "chains required" and Siskiyou Summit into California sometimes closes completely. If you are going to live out of town, tire chains or 4wd is pretty much a requirement.

You won't see much difference. I want to add that a front wheel drive car with all-season radials will get you just about anywhere you want to go.

Snow in Grants Pass is not an annual event and it melts off when the sun emerges. I'm more concerned with the daily black ice during the winter months. I hate to drive on it !

Merlin ? IMHO it is extremely underwhelming

Not only apples to apples, but fujis to fujis. Stay out of the mountains and you're fine. Snow melts off the SAME day normally. Not even the next day... the same day. And it is only a couple inches, if that.

Like ConeyIsBabe said, the black ice is what you need to worry about.

Just be careful on the road in the morning before it warms up outside. Black ice is HARD to spot. It looks like extra shiny and extra black road surface.

Basically it's formed when it rains during the evening and then the temperature dips below 32 during the night and freezes the water that's left on the roads. It's mostly a hazard only in the mornings on days after a frost before thge temperature has warmed up enough to melt the ice. Sometimes it lingers in the shady areas though, or on particularly cold days where it hovers around 32 degrees.
