StormWatch 12: Excessive Heat Warning & Lightning-Caused Wildfires

EXCESSIVE HEAT & THUNDERSTORMS BRING WILDFIRES

An Excessive Heat Warning has been issued for most of our inland valleys. The Excessive Heat Warning will stay in effect until 11 PM Tuesday for western and central Siskiyou County, eastern Curry County, Jackson County and Josephine County.

Meanwhile, passing thunderstorms pummeled the Rogue Valley with nearly 1,000 lightning strikes, sparking at least 55 confirmed wildfires over the weekend. Fire and forestry crews continue to battle those fires.

Stay with the meteorologists of StormWatch 12 for the latest and most accurate info on heat and weather conditions in our area. NewsWatch 12 will also keep you posted with all the latest information on wildfires and firefighting efforts throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California.
