Winds stuck with us overnight keeping morning lows extremely mild, this kept most areas from seeing fog which meant an entire day of sunshine to warm us up to record breaking highs! In fact, Medford and North Bend were just one degree shy of an all time record high for the entire month of January and Medford broke its daily record high at 10:30 this morning! Other records broken include:
Medford: 70 – old record 62 (1992)
Grants Pass: 71
Klamath Falls: 58 – old record 55 (1953)
Montague: 65 – old record 62 (2005)
North Bend: 73 – old record 70 (2006)
Mt Shasta tied old record of 63 set back in 1975
This weekend onshore flow will develop which is a more moist flow so a few more clouds and fog at the coast with valley fog increasing this weekend. With fog temperatures will be a bit cooler but still expecting very mild conditions with plenty of sunshine elsewhere, and fog will lead to mid to late morning sunshine even for the valleys.
Next week a warm front will bring our first chance for showers to the coast late Monday with a chance for showers inland on Tuesday and Wednesday. Our best chance for showers next week will be Thursday and Friday but with high pressure the dominate pattern these showers may fall apart as they move inland. Stay with Newswatch12 as we continue to monitor these systems and the chance for rain.
Thanks for logging on and have a great weekend!
