My wife and I are considering moving to Southern Oregon and wondering what the weather is like out there. Here in the Midwest we have a lot of severe weather. We're tired of the constant threat of tornados, the severe thunder storms, some with 70+ mph inline winds, and some with baseball size hail. It seems like we're under the gun almost every week, and the winters here have lots of heavy snow and below zero temperatures. We hear Oregon has a much milder weather climate. So can anyone tell us what kind of weather to expect if we were to move to Southern Oregon. We know the fishing is excellent.
