Easter Weekend Showers

video preview image

This IS going to be a Good Friday with the warmest temperatures of the year so far and Medford finally reaching 70 degrees for the first time this year! Decreasing clouds today will bring more sunshine to the area this afternoon then we’ve seen the last few days. With these warm temperatures there remains instability so we could see a few isolated showers at the higher elevations this afternoon, more of a sprinkling if anything, with most areas remaining dry today.

Tomorrow we change things up though as a low pressure in Central California will wrap up more than just warm temperatures but also more moisture.  Any Easter egg hunt plans for tomorrow morning will remain dry, but things change by the late afternoon as we start to see showers and thunderstorms. The best chance for thunderstorms will be at the higher elevations including the Cascades and Siskiyou’s and thunderstorms will produce heavy rain at times and gusty winds. Showers may produce moderate rain at times late Saturday into early Sunday then showers lighten up during the day Sunday. If you’re headed to church or to Easter egg hunts on Sunday be prepared for rain, especially in the morning. Showers will continue into early Monday before we dry out and warm up again through midweek.
