A foggy start to the day across the region with gradual clearing to mostly sunny skies today with near record high temperatures. Sunday Medford tied a record high of 73 degrees as did Roseburg reaching 76 degrees. Tomorrow will be a repeat of today with morning fog and afternoon sun. But that’s it for mild and dry weather for this week as several system moves through starting on Wednesday.
The first cold front will move through Wednesday dropping temperatures 5-10 degrees and bringing showers to the region and possibly thunderstorms east of the Cascades. Thursday the jet stream drops south of our region dropping temperatures another 10-15 degrees and bringing widespread rain and snow. Mountain passes will be impacted by snow from this system as well as roads in the basin. Prepare for snow and ice on roads, carry chains if driving through the mountains and watch for slick conditions.
