A heat advisory is in effect, now through 11 p.m. Tuesday for Jackson, Josephine, and Modoc counties, with portions of eastern Curry County, and north central and southeast Siskiyou County. Temperatures are expected to run between 103 and 105. In the Rogue Valley, there will be variances due to geographic location within microclimates.
While those temperatures won't set record, residents are encouraged to stay hydrated and stay out of the sun during the afternoon, as heat stroke and dehydration become problems during days like this. The record highs for July 1st and July 2nd are 108- set in 1942 and 1922 respectively.
Temperatures are forecast to dip below 100, but no much below it Wednesday and Thursday- which is Independence Day.
