We are just on a roller coaster ride with the data. One day you get one set of information from the models, the next day you get an entirely different set. I think this current set may be accurate, but boy has it ever changed the shorter term forecasts which is really kind of rare. Normally we have higher confidence in 24 - 72 hour forecasts, but right now these have been waffling. So here is what we have. A warm front is pushing through the area today. It is being driven by a building ridge. This will give us a mostly cloudy sky for a good portion of the day. I do think the cloud cover will start breaking up later today allowing for more sunshine. There could be a few light showers out there in the mountains. This type of event does not generally produce any showers in the valleys. We are on track for a sunny day tomorrow, but the data has really pulled the highs down. I was expecting upper 80s with 90 possible for Medford. Now it looks like it will be more low to mid 80s. Medford is projected for 84. That would not be the warmest day we have had this year. 

We will see a sunny day for Tuesday with highs in the mid 70s. Be expecting to see breezy to windy conditions in the afternoon and evening ahead of a front that will push in. Clouds will be around from Wednesday through Friday, but now it looks like we will stay on the dry side. I will not totally eliminate the chance for a shower here or there. Next weekend looks wonderful. I have had several people ask about the weather for the 2nd and 3rd of May. It is looking like it will be sunny and very warm with highs in the low to mid 80s. I would say you could start making some outdoor plans for next weekend.

I had multiple reports from eyewitnesses that a small tornado hit Glendale in southern Douglas County at 12:55 pm on April 13th. I even got photos of damage to a home there. I believed at that time that likely what had hit was a landspout. Landspouts are rotating vortexes, and many consider them tornadoes. I sent the eyewitness reports and the photos to NWS Medford for further analysis. NWS Medford did very detailed analysis of what I submitted, along with what happened at 12:55 PM on the radar and satellite images to see what they could determine.

I was informed by Ryan Sandler the Warning Coordinator for the National Weather Service here in Medford that the NWS is going to classify this event as a Gustnado. Gustnadoes are also rotating vortexes that can do damage. In this case equal to an EF 0 tornado. Now, because it is being classified as a tornadic event, it is going in the record book as a tornado, making it just the second tornado ever documented in Douglas County!

Much love to you Rogueweather Family! You people are just the best. Keep sending me your weather reports and photos. Who knows, in the future YOU may be the one who helps makes a significant historical report just as Jennifer and Debbie did.Congratulations to Jennifer Miller, and to Debbie McBride Edington! Because of your reports and Debbie your photos, we were able to provide NWS with what they needed to determine what had happened here.


The Rogue Siskiyou National Forest has announced that the Parker Meadows Campground in the High Lakes Ranger District between Butte Falls and Prospect is now permanently closed. This action was caused by disease infecting the Douglas Fir trees within the campground creating hazardous conditions. They decided to remove the toilets, picnic tables and fire rings leaving no amenities for camping. It is also recommended that you avoid camping in that location on your own due to the safety hazard. If winds come up, especially with no warning, the diseased trees there will fall with no warning. Impacts from them would prove fatal if they struck tents, vehicles, RVs or trailers.
