Rainy For Friday Shopping or Travel

WEATHER DISCUSSION Well, the front that was initially projected to move inland today has stalled out in the northern portion of our area and along the coast.  So far, locations just north of Brookings have seen over an inch of rainfall, but the rest of the area stayed dry for Turkey Day.  This will finally … Continue reading »

Wednesday’s Child: Jaedin

Medford, Ore. — It is not hard to get Jaedin to laugh. She’s nine years old and loves being in the fourth grade. She says everyone in her class is her friend. She shares her current home with what sounds like a small private zoo. It includes chickens, turkeys, goats, a cat and a dog. … Continue reading »

Winter Forecast

WINTER SPECIAL As meteorologists, when we talk about long term forecasting, we look at global changes in the weather pattern.  While there are several different types of these teleconnections, or oscillations, the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is one of the most influential for North America. In early November, the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) released … Continue reading »

Shaping Up To Be A Wet Holiday Weekend

WEATHER DISCUSSION With today being one of the busy travel days of the year, it is no surprise that a good bit of attention was focused on the weather forecast.  While the east coast continues to get battered by rain and snow, the Pacific Northwest will be facing its own series of storm systems throughout … Continue reading »

Patchy Fog With A Few Clouds Wednesday

WEATHER DISCUSSION Tuesday began with a bit of patchy fog and a few clouds, but as the day moved on, we saw some clearing.  With the afternoon sunshine, temperatures warmed to well above average, in fact, nearly ten degree above average in Grants Pass and Medford.  For Klamath Falls, we saw highs nearly fifteen degrees … Continue reading »

Gusty Winds & Heavy Rain For Fri. Night

WEATHER DISCUSSION High wind warnings have been in effect along the coast Friday, and the winds that we were seeing definitely warranted the warnings being in place.  Peak gusts near Cape Blanco reached 70 miles per hour, near North Bend we saw gusts of 40 miles per hour.  On Saturday, the high winds will reach … Continue reading »

A Messy, Windy Friday On the Coast

WEATHER DISCUSSION For about a week or so, we have been monitoring the storm system that will make its way onshore tomorrow on Friday.  Moving from west to east, the coast will be the first to see the effects of the system.  There are already storm warnings and flood advisories in effect for coastal areas. … Continue reading »

Wednesday’s Child, Hayes-Renick Family

MEDFORD, Ore.– Everywhere you look in the Hayes-Renick house, there are the reminders that children are around. Pictures on the wall and boots on the ground. They need a lot of boots. There are eight kids, in a family that came that together in an unexpected way. When Jake Hayes and Angie Renick-Hayes decided to … Continue reading »

Another Weak System Moves In Thursday

WEATHER DISCUSSION Wednesday was showery and breezy, but we will start to see a bit of a lull in the rainfall activity tonight.   We are still in midst of a fairly wet time frame, as showers (or snow for higher elevations) are in the forecast every day throughout the extended period.  The next system won’t … Continue reading »
