&& MARCH BEGAN ON THE HEALS OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM, RESULTING IN A TRACE OF
RAIN ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH AS WELL AS THE COLDEST TEMPERATURE OF THE
MONTH. THE NEXT LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM CAME IN A WEEK LATER BRINGING SOME LIGHT
RAIN THAT ALLOWED FOR ONE MORNING OF FOG IN THE VALLEY. THE WEATHER THEN BECAME
MORE FAIR WITH SIGNIFICANT DIURNAL SWINGS THAT SEESAWED BETWEEN MID 60S AND
NEAR-FREEZING.

THE NEXT SYSTEM WAS THE WINDIEST OF THE MONTH, BRINGING TWO DAYS OF MODERATE
WINDS TO THE AREA. IT ALSO BROUGHT AS MUCH RAIN AS THE PREVIOUS ONE TO KMFR,
WITH 0.18". THERE WERE FOUR MORNINGS IN A ROW WITH FOG FROM THE 14TH TO 18TH,
THE FIRST TWO OF WHICH WERE ON DAYS THAT IT RAINED. THIS WAS THE LONGEST STREAK
OF FOG OBSERVED FOR THE MONTH AT THE AIRPORT.

A WARM PERIOD THEN COMMENCED, PEAKING ON THE 22ND, WHEN MEDFORD REACHED 70F FOR
THE FIRST TIME FOR THE CALENDAR YEAR. THE TEMPERATURE THEN FELL SUBSTANTIALLY
THE NEXT DAY DUE TO A COLD FRONT, AND THEN REMAINED LOWER FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
DURING THIS TIME PERIOD SEVERAL FRONTS CAME THROUGH BRINGING THE LONGEST
STRETCH OF UNSETTLED WEATHER DURING THE MONTH. PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS AT MEDFORD
WERE LIGHT, WITH THE GREATEST SINGLE DAY AMOUNT BEING 0.11" ON THE 25TH, BUT
OTHER PORTIONS OF THE AREA RECEIVED MORE SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION DURING THE
LATTER PORTION OF THE MONTH. THIS WET PERIOD RESULTED IN A MUCH NEEDED ADDITION
TO THE MOUNTAIN SNOWPACK, BRINGING THE SNOWPACK IN THE ROGUE-UMPQUA BASIN UP TO
77% OF NORMAL BY MONTH`S END.
