Soupy weather could last another week

The soupy morning Rogue Valley weather that it was thought could be gone by today could well hang around for the rest of the week. Steve Best has more.

The National Weather Service has extended its Air Stagnation Advisory for Jackson and Josephine counties through Friday as an inversion layer – known as an Omega Block - brings low cloud and bone-chilling cold to the area.

Forecasters see no change in the weather pattern until maybe Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, while the Oregon DEQ is asking residents to limit open burning due to fears of increased pollution at this time.

The fog layer has caused some flight delays at the Medford airport, although the unmanned fog seeding balloon known as CASPER has been in use.

Long range weather forecasts call for below-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation for the Rogue Valley beginning in the week before Christmas.
