SEVERE WEATHER BULLETINS BROUGHT TO YOU BY CLAUDIO ALVAREZ CONSTRUCTION
NO severe weather bulletins in effect at this time.
WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
Skies will be mostly sunny for the most part today. This will allow another day of very warm temps inland. Over at the Coast,t he onshore flow has already kicked in so they will be much cooler there today. The thermal trough is making it's way inland today and it cut off the off shore flow. We are also seeing southerly airflow over the top of us today. That flow is transporting moisture into the area. And with the sunshine and very warm temps, this is going to make for a perfect scenario for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms to pop up. The action will be most likely over Western Siskiyou County, the Cascades, and the Siskiyous to start with. But, by late this afternoon and through the evening we will see slight chances for showers and storms in Jackson and Josephine Counties, east of the Cascades, and in Northern California. There is the slightest of chance that we could see overnight showers or storms in all these areas tonight into Tuesday morning. But, i am not wild about that happening right now because it looks like we will lack a good trigger overnight. So while not completely out of the question, not very likely to happen.
Tuesday will see much more widespread distribution of the showers and storms. Those will again be most likely in the afternoon and evening, but it does look more favorable for nocturnal storms for Tuesday into Wednesday. Wednesday will be cloudy with showers throughout the area. It looks as though the thunderstorm potential is limited to east of the Cascades for Wednesday through Friday now. The low that is producing all of this action will be headed into Southern California and the Four Corners region. However, it will linger in that area now according to the latest run of the data, and that means it will be affecting our weather through the weekend. West of the Cascades we will see cloudy skies with a chance of showers for Wednesday and Thursday. East of the Cascades will see a better chance for showers, and also will have a chance for some isolated thunder as well. Come Friday we do see skies becoming partly cloudy and they remain that way through the weekend. West of the Cascades this is just a slight chance. East of the Cascades with better moisture coming in wrapping around the low, it is a chance for showers. There will be a slight chance for isolated thunder east of the Cascades for Friday. Looking longer term to next week, there is a lot of uncertainty in the data and forecast models. We do not know yet if a ridge will take over giving us sunny and very warm conditions. Or, will we see more skies that have some clouds and a chance at showers. Time will tell on this one.

A to Z Independent Paralegal and Mobile Notary Service
Grants Pass, OR
There are many things you can do about your legal affairs. Oh, you don’t have any legal affairs? Hmmm… do you own a home or have minor children? If the answer is yes to either of these questions then you DO have things to think about. What would happen to your home and/or your children if you and your spouse were no longer around? Well, one choice you have now is to do nothing. Let the chips fall where they may. Let others decide. Another choice is to go to a usually expensive estate planning attorney. Or you could buy a legal Trust kit online for around a $1,000 and figure it all out yourself. But a better way would be to call A to Z Independent Paralegal and Mobile Notary Service. Cathy has the forms and YOU can decide what you need and have her help with filling out the forms so they are done right… quickly, easily and affordably.
You may want a Simple Trust to avoid costly and time consuming Probate Court. If you don’t own any real estate and you don’t have any minor children, you may just want a Will for your personal possessions. A Power of Attorney form is good to have designating someone you trust who can sign for you in case you can’t sign for yourself. A Quit Claim Deed can help you make simple name corrections on your property deed. And an Advance Medical Directive form will tell Doctors and Medical Personnel how you wish to be treated in case you can’t speak for yourself. As an EMT, I saw many instances where people were injured badly and they didn’t have a Medical Directive. Do you want someone else to decide for you? Probably not. Now is the time to make these decisions for yourself.
