Still Watching Out for Lightning Today

Thunderstorms managed to move into West Side Valleys Monday afternoon bringing rain, strong winds and hail. Today, the moisture will shift further inland keeping the lightning threat confined to the Klamath Basin and Siskiyou County. Storms should be isolated in these locations this afternoon.

By tomorrow, the weather will stay very inactive and dry region-wide. High pressure will become the dominant weather feature all the way through the weekend. With the upper level low still exiting to our east the next few days …temperatures will stay right around normal. In fact, highs will be a few degrees below normal midweek — near 80 east of the Cascades and the upper 80’s for the valleys.

Doesn’t look like any storms are on the horizon and the calmer and slightly cooler weather should help with fire fighting efforts. Also worth a mention — there have been 10 earthquakes 43 miles ESE of Lakeview just within that past day. This is valid as of 8am Tuesday. All have been weak, between 2.6 & 3.6 magnitudes.
