Record Breaking Heat By Next Week?!

video preview image

High pressure over the Midwest is pushing the upper low that brought us the cooler and wetter weather this week off to the north and out of our region. This morning we’ll see some remaining low clouds and isolated light showers at the coast but this afternoon will be significantly warmer with more sunshine. The mercury will only continue to climb as we head into next week with the potential for record breaking heat! Monday and Tuesday will be the hottest days of the next seven and here’s a look at the record breaking heat to beat:

City and Forecast high’s for July 1 and 2:          Record Highs for July 1 and 2:

Medford: 102 and 104                                                   108 and 108
Grants Pass: 99 and 102                                               105 and 105
Klamath Falls: 94 and 95                                             93 and 94
Mt. Shasta: 96 and 96                                                   92 and 94 (This would be the 4th and 5th record hot days THIS year!)
Alturas: 99 and 97                                                          92 and 97

Sunday some instability will be introduced to the area but moisture will be limiting, I have added a slight chance for Cascade thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. The threat for thunderstorms will increase early next week as disturbances wrap around the high added moisture and lift into the atmosphere and thus a better chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms, mainly along and east of the Cascades.
