Record Breaking Heat (Officially)

WEATHER DISCUSSION HOT is the word of the week so far and we’re just getting started. Hot air from the south has been moving into our area little-by-little each afternoon. High pressure near Nevada is slowly retrograding back into our region and because of this, hot air is being moved from the Desert Southwest up … Continue reading »

Record Temperatures in Jeopardy

WEATHER DISCUSSION Quite a week we’ve had, weather wise, this week with the hot temperatures to start.

A Warm End to the Weekend

WEATHER DISCUSSION June 21st – The Official First Day of Summer (Summer Solstice) A weak ridge of high pressure has moved its way onshore and is clearing us out for the next day or so. High temperatures today were already above average. Clear skies and a windy afternoon was what we got for Saturday. Sunday … Continue reading »

Clearing Tonight, Sunshine Tomorrow

WEATHER DISCUSSION While Tuesday remained dry, the clouds left over from Monday stuck around for another day.  Fortunately, that will be changing through the overnight hours tonight into Wednesday morning.  Once the sunshine returns tomorrow, temperatures will be on an incline. Highs Wednesday could be as much as 15 degrees warmer than today. The center … Continue reading »

Mid-Week Warm Up on the Way

WEATHER DISCUSSION Light and isolated showers fell today throughout the area, but mainly north of the Oregon and California state line.  Crater Lake and higher elevations even saw a bit of wintry mix.  Precipitation chances will continue to diminish as the evening progresses, and the sunshine will return just in time to start warming us … Continue reading »
