SEVERE WEATHER BULLETINS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CLAUDIO ALVAREZ CONSTRUCTION
WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
Today's data and model runs give us good news for the upcoming holiday weekend. We are very confident that it is going to be dry and warm for Medford and Grants Pass and all the festivities happening. There are minor, and I do mean minor threats for showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm Saturday afternoon and evening from Douglas County north, and then east through the Cascades and over Northern Klamath and Lake Counties. On Sunday we will see that chance for afternoon showers and storms expand to include the Cascades, the Siskiyous, east of the Cascades, and the mountains of Northern California. But again, these are slight chances we are talking about. Expect warm conditions with highs in the upper 70s for Saturday for the Rogue and Illinois Valleys and then near 80 to the low 80s for Sunday and Memorial Day Monday. We will see a a ridge and thermal trough combination set up on Tuesday. Look for high 80s for Medford on Tuesday. The data and models are showing a chance for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms for our area beginning on Thursday and possibly lasting through the following weekend. More dteails on this will be coming as we get closer in time to this event.
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. All of these businesses are committed to supporting the local community.

IN THE NEWS:
Laurel Hill Golf Course
9450 Old Stage Road
Gold Hill, Oregon
541 - 855 - 7965
Laurel Hill is in Gold Hill and located right off of I - 5. This makes it easy to get to and a quick drive from Medford. The course is laid out on a former farm and it is easy to walk. It is heavily treed with Madronne and Oak trees lining every bit of the fairways and the greens. This makes well placed shots a must. Laurel Hill is a nine hole layout, with a driving range. It is a very laid back course and if you want to play in shorts and a tank top and not draw icy looks from your fellow golfers, this is your course. It is very kid friendly as well. They have a junior program that is wonderful to introduce kids to golf. This is also a course where your kids have their first chance of beating you!
Golf Carts at Interstate
894 S Front St
Central Point, OR
541 - 664 - 3417
Golf carts are great multipurpose transportation devices. Seriously. They are not just for golf courses. There are all kinds of ways they can be used. Do you have a rural property? Have a business? Golf carts can be a great low cost way to get around your property and transport needed items and people who might have difficulty walking. For the outdoors enthusiasts, golf carts can help you get around to enjoy the outdoors. I have seen people use them at lakes to gain access for fishing. I have also seen them used for hunting. No joke. There are all kinds of ways you can use a golf cart.
Interstate Batteries in Central Point has used, refurbished golf carts available for sale. These carts are thoroughly restored to a like new condition. But, since they are not new, you will save a lot of money on purchasing a golf cart there. At least hundreds of dollars. And, golf carts are truly green as they are fully electric. Some of the carts they carry have even been beefed up for off road usage. Stop by their location to see the inventory in stock, or give them a call. But, if you decide you want or need a golf cart for any reason, this is where you should go to find a great deal on one.
Shady Cove Market
22111 Highway 62
Shady Cove, Oregon.
541 - 878-2121
I have been going into the Shady Cove Market literally for as long as I can remember. The Shady Cove Market is a full service grocery store in which you can stock up for your major food purchases. But, they are also small enough to be very convenient as well. The best of both worlds. They have a deli for you to purchase hot food items, and then have a complete beverage selection so you can load up the coolers on your way to fun at the lakes, the river, or in the mountains. They are a true hometown shopping experience and serve the entire Upper Rogue community proudly. Fred Thomas and his staff are very supportive of a number of community activities and events. Please support them whenever you are in Shady Cove.
