HARD FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 10 PM TONIGHT THROUGH 9 AM SATURDAY MORNING FOR JACKSON COUNTY IN SOUTHWESTERN OREGON
The National Weather Service Office in Medford, Oregon has issued a Hard Freeze Warning for the above area due to expected temperatures ranging from the teens to the low 20s.
A ridge of high pressure has built into the region. Circulation around the ridge will send Arctic air into the areas west of the Cascades. The coldest conditions will be in Jackson County.
While the growing season is over, the Hard Freeze Warning was issued due to the increased potential for pipes to freeze and burst causing damage to structures, and also to alert agricultural interests to protect livestock. With the expected low temps, the cold could be harmful or lethal to livestock left exposed. The same would also be true of pets. Make sure animals have access to shelter and also water and food sources that will not freeze up.

WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
The data has no changes at all through the weekend. What we are seeing is exactly what we will get. Expect sunny days after the patchy areas of morning fog / freezing fog west of the Cascades burns away. The overnights will continue to be very cold through Sunday night. Be ready for heard freezes inland and for frost and freezing conditions over at the Coast. For travelers returning home, it looks like there will be few problems for the,. Do expect icy spots in the mountains especially in the mornings and overnights. But, mid day travel so go along quite nicely from a weather standpoint as sunny skies will last through the weekend.
The data is pretty well agreed that next week will see us move into stormy weather. It looks like a fair amount of rain, wind, and mountain snow will arrive. That pattern is now expected to persist for a prolonged period of time. In short, we will see the kind of weather we typically expect to see at this time of the year. Welcome news indeed. But, where the data is still out of sync is when that begins. One of the main models starts us into that on Monday night. The other one gives us a start of Wednesday into Thursday next week. One thing both main models do agree on is that the system coming for Thursday next week is going to be a significant one delivering a blast of wind, rain, and mountain snow. Snow levels will be running around 5000 - 6000 feet to start, but it looks like they could be down in the passes again for the weekend of December 5th and 6th. This is something we will be keeping a close eye on.
