WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
Zero change in the data for today, zero change in the forecasts. In fact, once you remove any threat of thunderstorms, today's forecast is a direct replica of yesterday's forecast. Such is summer in our region. The only change int he forecasts for the next week at all was to drop temps down on Saturday, but that is it. We will see skies filled with sunshine and no chances of any rain. The only blemish we have will be Coastal low clouds, fog, and possible drizzle. That's it. Otherwise we have sunny skies and very easy to take mid to low 90s for all of the next week. Get out and enjoy it. The upcoming holiday weekend is looking awesome at this point.

WOLF KILLS 2 GOATS AND A SHEEP NEAR ASHLAND
Zach Urness - Statesman Journal 6/15/2016
A wolf attacked and killed two goats and one lamb in Southern Oregon’s Jackson County last weekend, according to Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials. The wolf OR-33, a 2-year-old male that recently made his way to the Southern Cascades, was blamed for three attacks in the Grizzly Peak area northeast of Ashland. Wolves are protected by the federal Endangered Species Act in Western Oregon and ODFW is likely to undertake non-lethal preventative measures in response to the incident.
On Friday, June 10, a goat carcass was discovered in the field of a livestock producer, with a second goat showing signs of injury from an attack, according to a report by ODFW. State biologists investigated the carcass and determined the death resulted from a wolf attack, based on the injury. GPS radio‐collar location data indicated OR33 was .4 miles from the kill site on June 11. A second goat carcass was found on June 13, with only parts of the skeleton remaining. On June 12, just a half mile away from the site where the goats were found, the livestock producer discovered the body of an adult ewe. “The extent and severe nature of the hemorrhage is consistent with wolf caused trauma,” ODFW officials wrote in their report.
OR-33 dispersed from the Imnaha Pack, the same pack as OR-7 and OR-25. He followed a path through the Columbia River Gorge, Ochoco Mountains and past Fort Rock State Park before stopping in Klamath County. Tom Collom, a district biologist for ODFW, told the Herald and News in February that OR-33 “got into a couple cow carcasses on private property” while in Klamath County. Collom said OR-33's collar is programmed to send location signals twice per day, but officials have only been receiving data once every two days or so.
