Rain Chances Take A Dive On Friday

WEATHER DISCUSSION Thursday afternoon brought scattered showers and even a few lightning strikes and rumbles of thunder to the area.  Friday will also feature showers and storms, but the rain and storm chances drop substantially.  Northern California and along and east of the Cascades stand the best shot at some more rain, and very isolated … Continue reading »

A Wet Wednesday Brings Flood Dangers

WEATHER DISCUSSION A large, textbook, comma-shaped area of low pressure is poised to make its way inland over the next 24 hours.  We’ve been anticipating the strength of this storm system for about a week now, and although models are a bit inconsistent with the exact timing of the cold front, most model outlooks agree … Continue reading »

Cooling Off for the Start of Fall

WEATHER DISCUSSION Summer has been hanging on by a nail. Every time we get a cold front that brings a relief, another dominant ridge of high pressure brings in temperatures well above average.

The brief cool down … Continue reading »

Staying Cooler For One More Day

WEATHER DISCUSSION The low pressure system that drifted onshore Wednesday brought us another round of showers and thunderstorms.  Fortunately, there were mainly just embedded rumbles of thunder within the steady light rain.  Early morning rainfall brought nearly half an inch of the wet stuff to Medford, one of the higher totals in the region.  That’s … Continue reading »

A Lull in Storm Activity

WEATHER DISCUSSION Thursday afternoon brought only one or two showers and storms to places like Lake and Siskiyou Counties, along with a few high clouds, but the weather pattern has been fairly inactive compared to that of the past couple of weeks.  Expect an just isolated storm in northern California and southern Lake County back in the forecast for … Continue reading »
