Quiet & Mild Again on Thursday

WEATHER DISCUSSION Wednesday began with low clouds and areas of fog along the coast, extending inland into parts of Douglas and Josephine Counties.  This marine push helped hold down temperatures until the fog lifted by the afternoon, so for some, temperatures were slightly cooler than yesterday.  Where sunshine was abundant, like the Klamath Basin, highs … Continue reading »

The Mild Days Keep Coming

WEATHER DISCUSSION Tuesday brought another round of well above average temperatures, with highs reaching the 60’s and 70’s in some locations.  I’ve jokingly heard this warm streak dubbed “Fake Out February,” which aptly describes this bout of spring-like weather that is nothing like what we typically see in mid-February.  If you didn’t know better, you might … Continue reading »

Spring-Like Temperatures Are Back

WEATHER DISCUSSION We maintained our streak of mild afternoon temperatures Monday, with highs easily reaching the middle 60’s and topping out in the 70’s for some locations.  These values are almost 15 degrees above average, and for inland locations, highs will be equally comfortable Tuesday. Although high pressure will still be in control, as the … Continue reading »

Chilly Mornings, Warm Afternoons

WEATHER DISCUSSION Not much change in the forecast over the last few days. The ridge of high pressure is keeping us in a lull of a weather pattern for a while. A few key small scale patterns will continue through next week. First, the Chetco Effect is still happening at Brookings. Offshore winds will continue … Continue reading »

Pleasant & Dry Heading into the Weekend

WEATHER DISCUSSION Thursday marked the 3rd day of those high clouds moving through, still blocking a good bit of sun from shining.  Those clouds are continuing to stream in from the storm systems out in the eastern Pacific, and we still won’t be getting rid of  them for Friday.  In fact, Friday’s forecast will be … Continue reading »

Our Weather Remains Quiet & Mild

WEATHER DISCUSSION Wednesday afternoon brought another round of above average temperatures, and aside from just minor fluctuations, they will stay very similar for the next several days.  Highs in the 60’s will not be uncommon for the valleys, northern California, the coast, and even the basin.  High pressure has a strong hold on the Northwest, keeping … Continue reading »

A Stagnant Pattern Develops This Week

WEATHER DISCUSSION Tuesday began with a little patchy fog in the valleys, but for the rest of the day we saw high clouds moving through.  The thin clouds helped hold temperatures down a little bit, but afternoon highs were still near or above average.  We will see warmer temperatures on Wednesday, but not before seeing … Continue reading »

Setting Up For a Dry, Quiet Week

WEATHER DISCUSSION The area of low pressure that brought a round of rain & showers last night and Monday has since shifted northward, but lingering sprinkles dotted the area Monday throughout the afternoon.  Storm after storm last weekend dumped over 7 inches of rain in a three day period in Mt. Shasta City, and rainfall … Continue reading »

Weekend Storm Packing a Punch

WEATHER DISCUSSION Two big storms in three days. This was what we expected this weekend and it is exactly what we got. Friday’s storm was the most potent, but the one that started today is already packing a punch. Heavy rain and wind started in Northern California and the Southern Oregon coast in the late … Continue reading »
