... Medford Oregon weather review: March 2015...
March 2015 began on a cooler note compared to the few weeks of warm weather during February. Although it likely felt chilly to most, average temperatures were only a few degrees below normal for early March. An upper level ridge moved in over the area after this cool down, resulting in warm, quiet weather with average temperatures running about 5 to 10 degrees above normal. The synoptic pattern became more active around the middle of the month, allowing a few warm systems to move through. One system brought record breaking rainfall to the Medford area. 0.74 inches of rain fell on the 14th, breaking the old record of 0.37 inches set in 1980. Towards the end of March, a colder system moved through the area, dropping snow levels and delivering some much needed mountain snow. After this system, a relatively short lived ridge built in over the area for the last week of March, warming up temperatures to 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Numerous sites around the area saw record breaking high temperatures for a few consecutive days during this time. On the 26th, Medford tied the high temperature record of 80 degrees set in 1923. As March came to an end, the active pattern resumed and temperatures cooled back down to normal values.
The average temperature for March was 53.3 degrees, which is 5.0 degrees above normal. The average maximum temperature was 66.3 degrees, which is 6.8 degrees above normal.

The water year began October 1st and is currently 12.75 inches which is 1.04 inches below normal. Calendar year precipitation is 5.90 inches which is 0.25 inches below normal.
