MEDFORD, Ore. -- According to data collected from the National Weather Service in Medford along with the next 14-day forecast, Medford is on track to have its hottest July in the last 20 years.

So far this month, Medford has had an average temperature of 99 degrees and has experienced five days of 100 degrees or hotter. It's been several years since Medford experienced this hot of a start to the month of July. The last time was back in 2014 — and even then, it was not even close to this year's heat.

Data from the NWS shows that Medford experienced an average temperature 96.63 degrees in the first 11 days of the month of July, that's roughly about three degrees cooler than what July of 2021 is averaging. However, later into that very hot July in 2014, the city experienced 10 days of 100 degrees or warmer. That's the most amount of days with 100 degree temperatures in the month of July for the city in the last 20 years.

But according to data collected from the 14-day forecast from the Weather Channel, the city is on track to experience an average temperature of 96.8 degrees by July 25th. That's .1 degrees off from the hottest July in the last 20 years and the city will still have six more days after that to beat the record.

Smoke in the Rogue Valley is cooling down temperatures at the moment, but as the smoke moves away from the area, warmer temperatures could be on the rise once again.
