StormWatch 12 Forecast

Smoky skies and warm temperatures will be the trend for the next few days. A stray shower of storm is possible as well.



Forecast

  • Today:  Another hazy day for the region as smoke continues on a south, south east path from both Douglas County fires. Temperatures will run a little warmer than yesterday, but the smoke will stop us from getting too hot. After we get some daytime heating, scattered showers and thunderstorms will once again litter the forecast region. A RED FLAG WARNING will take effect this afternoon/evening for the East side, Cascades, Siskiyous, and Western Siskiyou County due to lightning threats. Winds remain north, northwest 5-15 mph with gusts to 20.
  • Tonight:  Thunderstorm conditions will calm overnight with a few lingering showers possible. Temperatures will become mild and smoke will continue to be a concern. Air quality levels will remain poor to the south and south east of the fire.
  • Tomorrow:  Tomorrow, the same smoke issues will be present. Thick smoke at times, reducing visibilities. A slight chance for thunderstorms will be present in the mountains. Otherwise, hazy skies and warmer temperatures.

Lightning: Positive vs. Negative

Thunderstorms produce two types of lightning, when talking about electric charge. In today's "Ask the Meteorologist" we break down the difference between the two.

Positive vs. Negative Lightning

Most lightning strikes are negatively charged, but sometimes we see positively charged strikes as well. In this Ask the Meteorologist, we explain why positive strikes occur.

Sun Halos

When thin, high clouds are present, a ring sometimes appears around the sun. Why?

We feel the wind almost every single day; but what causes it? Find out in Today's "Ask the Meteorologist!"
