Today's forecast 3/11/2014 - brought to you by ANSWER PAGE OF MEDFORD
Mostly sunny with breezy conditions developing this afternoon. Stronger winds are possible in the Ashland, Talent, and Emigrant Lake areas. Highs today will be near 60 to the low 60s for the valleys, with 40s to the low 50s for the mountains and east of the Cascades. Overnight lows will be in the low 30s for the valleys with frost possible west of the Cascades on Wednesday morning. Lows will be in the teens and 20s for the mountains and east of the Cascades.
WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH 5 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING FOR SOUTHERN JACKSON COUNTY IN SOUTHWESTERN OREGON
Expect winds in the Ashland, Talent, and Emigrant Lake areas that will be sustained at 20 - 30 miles an hour with gusts to 40 miles an hour possible. This will impact I 5 and make driving in high profile vehicles difficult. Breezy conditions can be expected into the Medford area as well during this time.
FROST ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 8 AM WEDNESDAY MORNING FOR THE INTERIOR VALLEYS OF SOUTHWEST OREGON
Another night of temperatures in the low 30s can be expected. This will lead to the possibility of frost formation. Plants, trees, and other vegetation that have already put out blooms or buds could be at risk from the conditions. Protection will be needed for the most sensitive vegetation.
WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION:
Off to a very chilly start across the area this morning as we are seeing the coldest temperatures we have seen for weeks. Frost formation has occurred in the outlying areas west of the Cascades this morning, and we may yet see frost in the cities of Southwest Oregon this morning. This is also creating the possibility of some slick spots on the roads in the valleys this morning. Spots of ice are being reported in the mountains. The building ridge of high pressure will cause the gradients to tighten up later this morning, and by this afternoon expect breezy conditions to develop just about everywhere. A wind advisory is up for southern Jackson County in the Ashland area as winds could gusts as high as 40 miles an hour, and be sustained at 20 - 30 miles an hour.
Tonight into Wednesday morning is going to be as cold or colder than this morning is, so issued a frost advisory for the interior valleys of Southwest Oregon to cover that situation. Those with sensitive vegetation are going to want to protect them.
Beyond that the forecasts have changed little. The only real change of significance is to back down the highs for the weekend and Monday of next week. Just not going to be as warm as it looked like it might get yesterday. While it may not be 80 for Saturday any longer, low to mid 70s for mid March is still plenty warm and above normal for highs. Expect there will still be a chance for showers at the Coast for Wednesday night into Thursday mostly from Port Orford north, and then another chance for showers arrives later in the day on Friday into Friday night for the Coast, and then from the Umpqua Divide north, and in the Cascades from Highway 140 north. Otherwise skies will be sunny through at least the middle of next week. A weak system looks like it might try to come in on Wednesday next week. But, at this time it is not expected to do a whole lot. As we get closer to that date, the system may be kicked to the north leaving us on the very southern end of it with just some partly cloudy skies and cooler temps.

IN THE NEWS:
Northwest biologists are predicting this fall’s chinook salmon run will be the largest since 1938 -- the year record keeping began. Experts aren’t certain what, if anything, the unprecedented forecast says about the Columbia basin, or its fish, other than it demonstrates what’s possible when conditions are right.
