Sunday brought record breaking rain to Medford with a daily total of 1.38 inches, shattering the old record of 0.59 inches set all the way back in 1947! Several areas saw flooding and even snow in the mountains, as of this morning 2 inches at Mt. Ashland, 1 inch at Mt Shasta ski park and 9 inches at Crater Lake. A few showers are still falling in the Cascades at this time and those will come to an end by midnight. A thermal trough will develop over California Tuesday bringing breezy conditions and offshore flow. This will warm the Brookings area about five degrees warmer than the rest of the coast with a weak Chetco Effect developing. Tomorrow high pressure will build back in and that will persist through the week bringing dry conditions back to the area.
This week is going to be unseasonable warm with highs 5 to 15 degrees above average by midweek and the warming trend will continue into the weekend, with Saturday and Sunday likely the warmest days of the week. Expect mid-60s on the east side this weekend with mid-70s for west side valleys!
Thanks for logging on and have a great evening!
