WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
The strong ridge of high pressure over us continues to slide slowly east. Slowly is the operative word here. Yesterday we saw glorious sunshine and very warm to even hot temps across the region as the center of the high was basically over Southwest Oregon. In addition, pressure gradients tightened in the afternoon and a strong easterly wind component kicked in. The result was soaring temps that saw Medford have a high 11 degrees warmer than Miami, Florida yesterday. Medford hit 79 tying the all time record for February set back in 1992 when we hit 79 on the 25th and 26th of February. North Bend soared to 82. That tied their all time record for February as well. That was set on the 25th of February in 1992. We saw plenty of other records set as well. That included in Klamath Falls, Mt. Shasta City, and Montague. Look for more records today inland. Missing out on all of this was the Roseburg and Sutherlin area in Douglas County. Their fog yesterday morning turned into persistent low clouds. They also did not see the east winds kick in. That held temps in the 50s for highs. They could have a similar day today.
Over at the Coast, they saw the warmth too. You know about North Bend's 82. But, Brookings was up to 77. And while I did not hear from my spotter in Harbor, I have to believe that Harbor and the Chetco River Canyon were seeing temps in the low to mid 80s. That will be the end of the really warm conditions for them however. The transition has begun. The flow is still off shore this morning but has weakened considerably. Out over the Ocean, the low cloud and fog deck is heading back towards shore. It will arrive tonight. They will still have a nice day there with highs int he upper 60s to near 70. But tomorrow looks to grey and cloudy with morning fog. Highs will likely be only in the 50s.
For the areas east of the Cascades, today is going to be the really warm one. The center of the high is over Eastern Oregon head out and away from us. I am not going to be a bit surprised to see uppers 60s to near 70 pop up over there. Klamath set a record yesterday and they are going to set another record today. ALL NWS reporting stations east of the Cascades and over into Idaho, Northern Nevada, and Northern Utah should.
As the high continues to march east, it opens the storm door once again slowly behind it. But, where it had looked like we would go back into a prolonged period of storminess with lowering temps yesterday, the data is taking a turn this morning. We do get clouds and a chance for rain, and high elevation, (above most passes), snow for the weekend. However, come Monday we will see another ridge set up returning us to sunshine and highs in the mid 60s for Medford. What it looks like now is that we will see a see saw or yo yo pattern setting up. A high sets up giving us nice weather, then comes a low or a trough and back we go to clouds and a chance for rain, and then comes another high taking us back to sunny and warm. In short what this........spring. This would be the classic pattern of spring. If we are truly headed into that for a prolonged period, it would be a touch early. But, not unheard of.
