One More Warm Up, Before the Rain

WEATHER DISCUSSION The high pressure ridge is slowly making its way out of the region and before it leaves for good, we get one more round of roller coaster temperatures.

One More Ridge Before the Rain

WEATHER DISCUSSION The rain pattern is moving closer to the region, but before it arrives, we will have to deal with one more ridge of high pressure. This one is quite a bit smaller than the one we had over the last two weeks. This smaller ridge will allow for skies to become mostly clear … Continue reading »

Fall Temperatures Within Sight

WEATHER DISCUSSION Although the marine layer has returned to coastal locations and substantially dropped temperatures, there was no relief from the unseasonable heat for inland locations.  Highs in the Rogue Valley were once again 10 – 15 degrees above average, and although it seems like the cool down will never come, I promise it is … Continue reading »

More Sunny Autumn Days Ahead

WEATHER DISCUSSION The weather pattern over the past couple of days has been stuck in a rut…or stuck in a ridge, to be more exact.  High pressure is holding strong for the time being, but even after the ridge over our region begins to weaken, there won’t be a huge change in the type of … Continue reading »

Warmer Still for the Weekend
