Chilly Start but Warming Temperatures

A large high pressure air mass is currently building into the West. This is going to keep our region under clear skies for quite some time with quiet weather expected through next weekend. In the upper levels of our atmosphere a blocking pattern is setting up, something known as an Omega Block. This will prevent weather disturbances from moving into the region in the coming days.

Clear skies will bring warm afternoons, but cool mornings. A freeze watch is in place for Monday evening through Tuesday morning for Eastern Curry, Josephine, Jackson and Siskiyou Counties. Morning lows will be in the upper 20’s and low 30’s across the region.

Temperatures are going to gradually warm through the week. By the week’s end, afternoon highs are going to be several degrees above average. The average high in Medford is 72 and in Klamath Falls is 65.
