... Medford Oregon weather review: June 2016...

The dominant weather pattern of June 2016 was a broad area of high pressure
bringing easterly winds and allowing the thermal trough to move northward into
the Rogue Valley. This pattern began early and allowed June to start off with
temperatures soaring into the triple digits. In fact, two record highs of 100
degrees were tied during this initial heat wave of the 4th and 5th. Although the
6th was even warmer, it did not break a record high. The warm weather also
brought isolated showers and thunderstorms across portions of southern Oregon
and northern California--some of which became severe.

The overall pattern changed rapidly as a strong cold front pushed through our
forecast area on the 8th. This front was responsible for a 30 degree drop in
the maximum temperature spanning 3 days (7th-10th). The overall mean temperature
saw a significant decline in temperatures (23 degrees) in those same three days.
Beginning on the 15th, the showers and storms finally moved over Medford. This
system produced nearly the June monthly average for rainfall in the span on 4
days (15th-18th). After the front exited the area, the thermal trough returned;
and conditions became dry and warm once again. This allowed June to have 13 days
with temperatures above 90 degrees.

The average temperature for June was 70.0 degrees, which is 3.2 degrees above
normal. The average maximum temperature was 85.0 degrees, which is 3.4 degrees
above normal. The average minimum temperature was 55.1, which is 3.1 degrees
above normal. The highest temperature for the month was 101 degrees on the 6th.
The lowest temperature for the month was 44 on the 11th.

There were 22 clear days, 7 partly cloudy days, and 1 cloudy day.

Total precipitation for the month was 0.57 inches, which is 0.05 inches below
normal. The greatest 24 hour total was 0.27 inches that fell from the 16th
through the 17th. The total precipitation for the water year (beginning October
1st) stands at 19.32 inches which is 2.22 inches above normal. Calendar year
precipitation is now 9.56 inches which is 0.10 inches above normal.

The average wind speed for the month was 5.5 mph. The fastest recorded two-
minute wind was 26 mph from the north on the 6th. The peak wind was 34 mph
from the northeast, also on the 6th.

The highest pressure for the month was 30.29 inches on the 19th. The lowest
pressure for the month was 29.65 inches on the 7th.
