Another Sunny & Warm Day

A weak disturbance passing through the east side today will hold the high pressure offshore which means the Chetco Effect will still be in full-swing today warming Brookings back into the 80s today! For areas on the west side expect to see temperatures right around where we were yesterday just maybe a few degrees warmer. … Continue reading »

Feeling Like Early Summer

High pressure offshore coupled with a thermal trough over California will continue to bring warm and sunny conditions across the region today.

Poor Air Quality Today

Fog & Low Clouds, Peaks of PM Sun

Fog developed and lifted into a low cloud deck over the Rogue and Shasta Valleys on Friday.  Low clouds and fog will be present through the weekend, as high pressure high above the ground warms the air at mountain top levels…and traps colder air in the valleys.  The high pressure zone will move ever so … Continue reading »
