WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
No change in the data this morning through Friday. That means we can expect to see sunny skies with just a few high clouds at times through Wednesday. We will see more high cloudiness arriving for Thursday and Friday. Temps will be above normal through the work week by about 5 - 8 degrees. This keeps us mostly around 80 to 85 or so for Medford. Even when more cloudiness arrives for Thursday and Friday, we still hang on to the warm temps. It is this next weekend where we look to have a change over to a pattern that has the potential to eventually see significant rain and much cooler weather arrive. There is very low confidence in the forecasts from Saturday onward. The one thing that all models do agree on is that we will be cooling down, and clouds increase. The disparity in the models regards rainfall and just how much cooling. The data is all over the place right now. One thing is clear though. The bulk of the activity does go north of us. We may have a situation develop where Coos and Douglas Counties see the rainfall, and the rest of us get a slight chance for showers at best. Or, the rains could push further south all the way to Northern California as indicated by one of the models. This would then give us significant rain for all parts of the area except east of the Cascades. This would also get snow levels coming down in the mountains. Maybe to as low as 4500 feet by early next week. There is much that is going to have to be worked out in the days ahead. But, the possibility for significant rains and mountain snow is there.
