FORECAST FOR 10/25/2014

Mostly cloudy with rain, heavy at times, and possible thunderstorms. Expect strong gusty winds over the entire area with wind gusts to 60 miles an hour or more possible. Thunderstorms will produce strong wind gusts as well if they form. Highs will be in the mid 60s for the valleys, with 50s for the mountains and east of the Cascades. Tonight, rain continues heavy still at times. Snow levels lower in the mountains with 3 - 6 inches of snow expected above 4500 feet. Lows tonight will be in the upper 40s for the valleys, and in the 30s and 40s for the mountains and east of the Cascades.


HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH 5 PM WEST OF THE CASCADES, AND THROUGH 11 PM EAST OF THE CASCADES.

Fire season is now over for all Oregon as of October 17th. See story below for a recap of the season locally on ODF protected lands.


WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION:

A very potent storm system will deliver a one two punch of rain and strong winds to the area today. Rain could become heavy at times with up to 4 inches expected at the Coast and more likely for the Coast Range. Inland, amounts will be lighter, but all areas should see significant rains out of the is. The Rogue valley in the Medford area will experience the usual downsloping effects which means the rain will be later arriving in Medford, thus keeping amounts here lighter than elsewhere. Winds will also be a big part of this system and it is the first big wind maker of the season in terms of wind speeds and amount of area coverage. The High Wind Warning up for the area pretty well details it in terms of what is expected where, but the Coast and the mountains above 3000 feet look to see the strongest winds with gusts to 80 miles an hour possible. Wind gusts to 70 miles an hour are possible for the areas east of the Cascades in Oregon, and down in Northern California. The Rogue Valley in the Medford area can expect winds gusting to 50 miles an hour.

Thunderstorms may occur today as the atmosphere is very unstable and would support them firing off. Thunderstorms will bring squally weather with them including bursts of heavy rain, and winds gusting to as high as 50 miles an hour.

The main front will work through the area tonight, and when it does, cold air will arrive and lower snow levels in the mountains. Look for snow levels to drop to near 4500 feet by tomorrow morning with 3 - 6 inches of snow expected. This should produce impacts for travelers across the higher passes of the Cascades so be expecting that if you have travel plans.

The storm departs the area on Sunday leaving scattered showers in it's wake, and a snow level hovering near 5000 feet by Sunday afternoon. Looking ahead, Monday looks to be the nicest day of the upcoming week. A series of systems will arrive with more rain for the region starting on Tuesday. It does look right now like Halloween will be cloudy for the valleys, but not wet for trick or treating. I will keep you updated on that of course as Halloween lands on Friday night this year so it ought to be very busy for the kids hunting down goodies.

DRONE VIDEO BROUGHT TO YOU AS A PUBLIC SERVICE BY:




We are ready to be operational with the Phantom Drone aircraft provided by McMurray and Sons Roofing and Energy Management. We will change how you get immediate information from fires, floods, and other events that will impact your life in the region. This will give you much better information you will need to make decisions about evacuations or other measures to protect life and property.

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.

IN THE NEWS:

ODF MEDIA RELEASE 10/15/14

FIRE SEASON ENDS ON ODF-PROTECTED LANDS

Fire season has ended on Oregon Department of Forestry-protected lands in southwest Oregon. Rainfall of at least one-half inch was recorded in many parts of the district, which includes state, private, county, city and Bureau of Land Management forestlands in Jackson and Josephine counties.

Fire season started June 2 and lasted 136 days.

The termination of fire season removes fire prevention regulations on equipment use and the use of fire for debris burning. This applies to the public and to industrial operations on forestlands. However, many structural fire protection districts require permits for debris burning, and both Jackson and Josephine counties have telephone numbers to call to find out whether air quality conditions allow burning. The numbers to call are:

• Josephine County: (541) 476-9663

• Jackson County: (541) 776-7007

More than 280 fires burned 9,559 acres on forestlands protected by ODF’s Southwest Oregon District. There are 1.8 million acres of forestland within the district’s protection boundary in Jackson and Josephine counties.

The largest blaze on the district was the Oregon Gulch Fire, which burned 35,129 acres of forestland in Jackson and Klamath counties, and Northern California. The Jackson County portion of the fire burned 8,306 acres, approximately 14 miles southeast of Ashland. The Oregon Gulch Fire was reported July 30 and was one fire in a complex of 23 other lightning-caused fires scattered around Jackson County.

Lightning started 98 fires on the district and burned 9,071 acres. The thunderstorms hit July 11, July 22, July 29-30, August 11 and August 18.The Salt Creek Fire, which also started July 30, burned 155 acres of forestland approximately 8 miles west of Shady Cove.

The earliest fire on the district this year was the 143-acre Alder Creek Fire, which started January 23 during a period of unusual dryness and strong east winds. A fire that had been set to burn slash escaped control and started the Alder Creek Fire.

The 2014 fire season was similar to the summer of 2013, during which 348 fires burned 43,078 acres on lands protected by the Southwest Oregon District. Lightning-caused fires that year burned more than 42,000 acres.

For more information about the Oregon Department of Forestry’s fire season regulations, contact the unit office in your area:

• Medford Unit, 5286 Table Rock Rd., Central Point. Phone: (541) 664-3328

• Grants Pass Unit, 5375 Monument Drive, Grants Pass. Phone: (541) 474-3152

"If you don't know photography.....know your photographer." Gerry has been saying this since the very first day I met him well over a decade ago. While I do know a little something about photography.....I am very happy I know this photographer! Gerry is a talent with a camera. He is amazingly gifted. He can get details in his photography that very few have the eye to be able to see, much less capture. Gerry has worked for some big companies along the way. He did photography for Coke a Cola for years. He is a specialist in doing all kinds of commercial photography from product shots to executive head shots. But doing personal special moments is something he takes great joy in. He has done countless weddings, senior portraits, and family special occasions. You should head over to his website and check out his work. It will speak for itself. You may be able to beat his rates, but you will NEVER beat his quality! I can assure you of that.
