Mild Temperatures & Dense Morning Fog

WEATHER DISCUSSION Wednesday began very much like Monday and Tuesday, with dense fog in our valleys and cool temperatures.  By the afternoon hours, however, temperatures were not quite as warm as days past, but still above average.  Klamath Falls came very close to setting a record, hitting 55 degrees – one degree shy of the … Continue reading »

Morning Fog & a Stray Shower Wednesday

WEATHER DISCUSSION Tuesday brought another round of dense fog to the valleys, and for some locations in Josephine County, that fog never lifted.  However, Medford did see a fog-free afternoon, but highs clouds and haze obscured any sunshine we may have seen.  We also saw a few spotty showers pop up on the radar, but they … Continue reading »

Dense Fog Hangs Around For Friday

WEATHER DISCUSSION As has been the case for the past week or so, high pressure remains in control, and the associated temperature inversions around the area are strong.  These inversions act like a lid on the lower portions of the atmosphere, holding in the fog that develops but allowing for mild, if not almost warm, … Continue reading »

Temperatures Slowly Recovering

WEATHER DISCUSSION As expected, another quiet day was the story for today. High pressure moving in from the west as been keeping us dry. Warmer temperatures are slowly creeping in as winds turn from the south, and clearing occurs in the afternoons. We started Saturday off with very cold overnight lows due to the clear … Continue reading »
