The surrounding mountain ranges, which include the Cascades, the rugged Coastal Range and the Siskiyou Mountains, help to moderate Medford’s annual rainfall, which is generally less than 20 inches.  Snow is common and heavy in the mountains, but light on the valley floor where it normally melts within a few hours.  During the winter, the daily low dips into the middle 30s.  Fog is often to blame for airport delays in the winter months.  Highs in the summer average around 90 degrees, though there are a handful of “scorchers” with temperatures in the high 90s to low 100s.  The average growing season is 170 days.
