JUNE 2015 HAD A VERY WET START IN MEDFORD AS NEARLY ALL OF OUR MONTHLY
RAINFALL OCCURRED ON THE FIRST DAY. ANOTHER WEAK DISTURBANCE MOVED
THROUGH ON THE 8TH AND 9TH PROVIDING MUCH OF THE ROGUE VALLEY
AND SURROUNDING AREAS WITH ANOTHER COUPLE OF DAYS OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS. BEYOND THAT, MEDFORD REMAINED EITHER SUNNY OR MOSTLY
SUNNY WITH NO MEASURABLE RAINFALL. THIS ALLOWED FOR TEMPERATURES TO
SOAR ACROSS SOUTHERN OREGON AND NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. THESE CONDITIONS
RESULTED IN THE HOTTEST MONTH OF JUNE MEDFORD HAS SEEN SINCE RECORDS
BEGAN BACK IN 1911. THE RECORDS FOR HOTTEST JUNE INCLUDE THE AVERAGE
MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE, THE AVERAGE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE, AND THE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE ITSELF WHICH IS THE AVERAGE OF THE AVERAGE MAX AND MIN
TEMPERATURES. THERE WERE 21 DAYS WHICH REACHED AT LEAST 90 DEGREES AND
5 DAYS WITH TEMPERATURES SOARING OVER 100 DEGREES...WITH OUR FIRST 100
DEGREE DAY OCCURRING ON THE 7TH. WE EVEN BROKE DAILY MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURE RECORDS 6 TIMES THIS MONTH. ADDITIONALLY, WE ALSO HAD MILD
TO WARM MINIMUM TEMPERATURES ALL MONTH. IN FACT, MEDFORD BROKE THE ALL
TIME RECORD WARMEST MINIMUM TEMPERATURE ON THE 28TH WITH A LOW
TEMPERATURE OF 76 DEGREES. ALTHOUGH A FEW SHOWERS AND STORMS OCCURRED
THROUGHOUT JUNE, RAINFALL VALUES ACROSS SOUTHERN OREGON AND NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA ARE STILL MUCH BELOW NORMAL FOR THE MONTH OF JUNE AS WELL AS
FOR THE WATER AND CALENDAR YEAR. THIS HAS ALLOWED FOR OUR DROUGHT
CONDITIONS TO CONTINUE DRYING OUT FUELS. CONSEQUENTLY, THE
THUNDERSTORMS WHICH HAVE OCCURRED THIS MONTH HAVE PRODUCED NUMEROUS
WILDFIRES ACROSS OUR FORECAST AREA.
