FORECAST FOR 3/4/2015 - presented by Valley Immediate Care
Patchy areas of fog this morning in Douglas and Josephine Counties, otherwise mostly sunny. Highs will be in the low 60s for the valleys, with 50s for the mountains and east of the Cascades. Overnight lows will be in the low 30s for the valleys, and teens and 20s for the mountains, and east of the Cascades.
WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION
Once again, no change to the overall picture. We will be sunny and increasingly warmer this week through the weekend. Overnights and the mornings will still be on the cold side. By this weekend low 70s for Medford look to be a lock. Going to be very nice indeed. Make outdoor plans with no fear of rain at all anywhere in the region. Looking ahead one week from today......it is expected that a vigorous trough will come into the Northwest that will deliver a big time blast of winter. Potentially it could be the biggest shot of snow in the mountains so far this season. But, the data has still not solidly landed on the arrival point of this activity. But, once it does get here, (and all models agree that it will), then look for significant snows in the mountains above 4000 feet with rain for the valleys.
The support I have received from all of you is tremendous. It really is. The traffic both here on the website, and on social media is exceeding my every expectation. You people are awesome.
I am asking just one thing of you. One. VISIT the sponsors of Rogueweather. This is VERY easy to do. EVERY ad here on Rogueweather.com links to a website or a facebook page. Just click on those banner ads. Each day I feature sponsors here on the home page and on facebook. When you see them, click on the link to visit them. That is all you have to do. Easy, quick, simple. No real effort required. But it means a LOT later when I ask for their continued support of Rogueweather. It really does. They can then see for themselves how much you believe in Rogueweather. Obviously buying your goods and services from these wonderful people is great. And when you do that....PLEASE let them know you have seen them on Rogueweather.

DRONE VIDEO BROUGHT TO YOU AS A PUBLIC SERVICE BY:

The video you sill see below was shot during the thunderstorm that hit on Tuesday the 22nd of July. I was impressed by what I was seeing with the naked eye. I had NO idea what the camera was getting. What I saw was mind blowing! The video below is of one lightning strike sequence that happened over Jacksonville. Watch the difference between what your naked eye sees, and what our camera picks up. This is stunning stuff!

We are working on breaking down an impressive strike sequence that shows a lightning strike from it's genesis stage to the completed strike. Now, you can see this strike in the sequence above. But, when we get finished doing the frame by frame editing you are not going to believe what the camera picked up! I am thrilled because I have never seen a lightning strike sequence this well detailed before quite like this one.

Fish Lake Resort
Mile Marker 30, Highway 140
Eagle Point, Oregon

Fish Lake is one of my favorite places in Southern Oregon. You can get to it quick heading east on Highway 140 out of White City. It is home to one of my favorite fishing spots in this end of the state, and no.....I am NOT telling you exactly where that is! Fish Lake Resort has been the destination for many families over the years. They offer year round fun. Fishing, camping, hiking, biking, snowmobiling, you can do it all up here. The owners of Fish Lake Resort are Jim and Debbi Blodgett and they are wonderful hosts indeed. The resort itself has a restaurant, store, and a game room. They have a marina with boat rentals available. The fishing up here is excellent indeed and the lake is populated by rainbow trout, tiger trout, (a hybrid of a brook trout and a brown trout), and chinook salmon. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife regularly stocks Fish Lake to keep fishing very good. Pleasure boating is allowed on the lake and you will see water skiers or people playing on inflatable towables. The boat ramp is in the Forest Service day use area and you will pay a fee to use it. Their campground has cabins and features campsites that will accommodate even large motor homes and 5th wheel trailers. Fish Lake Resort also sits in the middle of a vast trail system that gives you lots of options for hiking and biking in the summer and cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling in the winter. The resort is open seven days a week from April through the end of October, and then open weekends during the winter.
