Showers & Storms Come to an End

Sunday brought a lot of rain to the region as an upper level disturbance moved across the viewing area. Many places have reported between 0.35”-0.60”+, especially in the higher terrain! Medford broke a precipitation record today, shattering the 1954 record of 0.24” and receiving between 0.32”-0.40”+ depending on exact location.

On another note, hundreds of lightning strikes occurred through the course of the day, with a small fraction being over Jackson County. Pacific Power is reporting 30,000 people without power across Northern California as of 8PM Sunday evening. Any lingering instability and lightning should be primarily over Northern Klamath & Lake Counties for the remainder of the evening.

As the sun sets Sunday evening the activity should slowly diminish, especially by midnight. Decreasing cloud cover will make for a mix of sun and clouds for the valleys Monday. Gradual clearing will bring mostly sunny skies to Northern California & the Klamath Basin.

A series of disturbances are going to brush by the coastline, and their exact timing and locations have prompted me to include sun & clouds for the West Side all week long. All inland areas should stay dry though. The coastline will be under clouds for a good majority of the week and face chances for light rain/drizzle through Thursday.

Warmer temperatures are on the way as well. By midweek expect temperatures to warm a good 5-7 degrees.
