Fire Weather
Issued 300pm Sunday July 14, 2024...Thunderstorm potential remains the focus of the forecast efforts through Tuesday. Strong high pressure will linger over the Great Basin region into next week and a weak low pressure will move northward just offshore of the California coast, finally moving out of the region Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms have already kicked off this afternoon, with scattered activity expected to be focused over western Siskiyou County and the Siskiyou Mountains today. Storm coverage will be isolated east of the Cascades, and gusty outflows of 35-45 mph remain a concern with any thunderstorms. Storm motion today over the Siskiyous is from south to north, so it's possible for storms over the Siskiyous to get pushed northward into Jackson/Josephine Counties this afternoon or evening. We're maintaining a Red Flag Warning through 9pm today for lightning on dry fuels, and more details can be found at RFWMFR. High resolution models are showing some returns moving over the region tonight, but the chance for thunder remains fairly low overnight tonight.

For Tuesday, moisture is shifting northward and thunderstorm activity will shift northward as well. The best chances for Tuesday look to be along an arc from southern Lake County northwestward across Klamath County/Crater Lake into fire weather zone 617 and eastern Douglas County east of the I-5 corridor. We'll be in a bit of transition pattern as drier air moves up from the south. The trough will be taking on a negatively tilted orientation which is a common wind maker pattern for us well. Strong gusty south winds are expected across northern California, especially in the Shasta Valley as well as in the Rogue Valley. These strong winds will combine with low daytime RHs to result in near critical to critical fire weather conditions for Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night into Wednesday, low pressure finally swings through and out of our region. Given the negative tilt of the trough, it could kick off some nocturnal storms, but it looks more like a situation where storms develop along the Douglas/Lane County border and then moves north out of our area. Moisture looks to be well north and east of the region on Wednesday, so thunderstorm chances drop out of the forecast after Wednesday afternoon and typical summer weather conditions return. /BR-y
