Transitioning to Hotter & Drier

video preview image

Today will be our transition day with a few showers, mainly in the morning, and periods of moderate rain at the coast and mountains. Shower activity will be decreasing through the day with a bit more sunshine this afternoon and warmer temperatures. Tomorrow a high pressure over the Midwest will shift west which will push the upper-low that’s been bringing us the rainy and cool weather to the north and out of our region. This will bring unseasonably hot and dry weather after the unseasonably cool and rainy weather we’ve had this week! This means triple-digits for west side valleys by next week and mid-90s for the east side.

Here’s a wrap-up of the rain totals we received over the past 72-hours:

Red Mound: 4.01″
Quail Prairie: 3.49″
Brookings: 1.75″
McCloud, CA: 3.39″
Mt. Shasta, CA: 0.48″
Medford: .08″
Lakeview: 0.43″
Hoyt Creek: 1.05″

I want to point out the totals of Grants Pass and Klamath Falls because they are significant: Grants Pass received 0.49″ which is just 0.13″ shy of what they usually receive for ALL of June, and Klamath Falls 0.72″ total is just 0.08″ short of the normal for all of June! It is not unusually to see this much rain in three days, but it is unusual to see it at the beginning of Summer!

Thanks for logging on and have enjoy the last cool day!
