Thunderstorm activity this afternoon and evening across most of South west Oregon and Northern California will add to the rain we have already received. Remember though that thunderstorms bring risks that rain showers do not, such as: brief downpours that reduce visibility while driving, lightning and gusty winds.
The past seven days has seen widespread rainfall in the area. The coast and eastern Douglas county have observed the most rain so far. However, shower activity will continue through this evening and may further increase totals. The rainfall over has been a relief to many different aspects of life in our area, here are a few that we have noted: reduction in the fire danger in our area, improved drought conditions, and the increased rainfall will also see river levels rise and should make fishing conditions more favorable. Stay tuned to the forecast as after a few days of dry conditions, rain will make its way back into the forecast.
