It was a cold frosty morning on Tuesday around the Umpqua Valley and the low temperature dropped enough to equal the all time record for the date.
Data from the National Weather Service in Medford says the low at the Roseburg Regional Airport was 25 degrees. That tied the record low last set on the date in 1949. At the secondary report station at News Radio 1240 KQEN, the mercury dropped to 24 degrees.
Listeners to News Radio 1240 KQEN reported early morning temperatures of 21 in Melrose, 22 in Sutherlin and Glide, 23 in Winston, and 27 in both Green and Tri City.
Overnight lows are forecast to return to the mid to upper 30s for much of the rest of the week. However forecasters are calling for rain and snow showers to be mixed Sunday night with lows back to the upper 20s for the Roseburg area.
