The Scorching Heat Continues

video preview image

Expect to see afternoon high temperatures to be 10-15 degrees above normal through the end of the workweek with the possibility of some record breaking highs!  The good news is the work week is almost over!  Friday will be the hottest day of the week with Medford having a chance to break the record for the day of 105 degrees set back in 1992.  On Saturday we’ll see temperatures drop about ten degrees and Sunday we’ll return to normal temperatures for this time of the year.  While we’ll continue to see temperatures in the 90s, at least we’ll take a break from the triple digits.  As we head into next week we may see some temperatures even below normal.

Although we’ll see temperatures start to drop this weekend we’ll see the chance for thunderstorms  increase.  We had a thunderstorm along the coast of northern California last night and a chance for isolated thunderstorms will continue today for northern California and areas east of the Cascades.  With moisture being advected from tropical storm Hector due to the southwest monsoon over the next several days we’ll see cloud cover increase along the coast while the chance for thunderstorms increases for all inland areas.  The good news is we should get some rain and wind with these storms which should help our fires in the area as well as wash some of the smoke out of the air. Unfortunately until any rain or wind comes into the area this weekend we’ll be seeing smokey and hazy skies for all inland areas.

Fire Danger Level will bump up to ‘Extreme’ tomorrow which means new restrictions will take effect.  Find out more about fire danger levels and restrictions here.
