While temperatures were above average today, they didn’t start that way this morning. In fact, the official lows for many locations were below average, with Lakeview dropping to the upper 20′s and Klamath Falls falling below freezing as well. Parts of the Basin are once again expecting another frost or freeze event tonight.
High pressure has settled into the Northwest and will be in control for the next few days. Keep in mind that Klamath and Lake counties are under a frost advisory and a freeze warning for early Thursday morning until 9 AM. If you can, bring in your small potted plants or cover the plants in your garden. For orchards, a frost fan can help pull warmer air towards the trees and keep frost at bay. A weak trough tries to makes an impact on Friday with a few clouds moving into the area, but no rain chances are expected.
Also with the drier conditions we are seeing this year, fireworks for the Fourth of July will have to be closely regulated. They go on sale in the city of Medford on June 23. With the fire danger level sitting at High, there are precautions you can take to lower your chances of sparking a fire. For safety tips, visit KDRV.com for more information.
