... Medford Oregon weather review: February 2015...

The month of February started out wet as multiple warm systems moved
through during the first week, delivering record breaking rainfall. The
first set of systems broke a daily rainfall total for Medford on the
2nd with 0.67 inches of rain measured that day, followed by another
0.60 inches on the 3rd. This rainfall set the stage for significant
flooding, mainly for the southern and western portions of the County
Warning Area, by saturating the ground ahead of a significant
atmospheric river event. Another rainfall record for Medford was broken
on the 6th as another round of moisture laden systems moved through the
area from the 5th through the 9th. Although the worst of the flooding
occurred in Siskiyou County, CA, multiple rivers and streams reached
minor flood stage along with numerous Road washouts around the area.
Strong winds also accompanied the one system that moved through on the
6th. This coupled with saturated soils resulted in numerous trees
downed around the area. After the drenching rains during the first
week, a ridge of high pressure settled over the Pacific northwest that
kept the area dry and warm over the next two weeks. During the last few
days of February, the ridge retrograded to the east, allowing an upper
level trough to drop down from the north. This brought colder
temperatures, valley rain, and some much needed mountain snow.

The average temperature for February was 48.0 degrees, which is 3.8
degrees above normal. The average maximum temperature was 59.7
degrees, which is 5.4 degrees above normal. The average minimum
temperature was 36.4 degrees, which is 2.3 degrees above normal. The
highest temperature for the month was 69 degrees on the 17th. The
lowest temperature of the month was 23 degrees on the 23rd.

There were 14 clear days, 9 partly cloudy days, and 5 cloudy days.

Total precipitation was 3.20 inches which is 1.19 inches above
normal. The greatest 24 hour total was 1.02 inches that fell from
the 6th to 7th. The water year began October 1st and is
currently 11.30 inches which is 0.78 inches below normal. Calendar
year precipitation is 4.45 inches which is 0.01 inches above
normal.

The average wind for the month was 3.5 mph. The fastest recorded two-
minute wind was 40 mph from the southeast on the 6th. The peak wind
was 54 mph from the southeast on the 6th.

The highest pressure for the month was 30.48 inches on the 25th. The
lowest pressure for the month was 29.49 inches on the 7th.

Records set during the month:

Record precipitation on the 2nd of 0.67 inches breaking the old record
of 0.58 inches set in 1991. Another precipitation record was set on the
6th of 0.75 inches breaking the old record of 0.60 inches set in 1960.
