Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport (KMFR) seeding to cut through fog on Sunday

Medford, Oregon  — The Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport is seeding on Sunday, to help improve visibility. 

With freezing fog conditions, airport officials made the call to begin seeding operations.

Authorities say the airport sends up a helium-filled balloon  with a spreader that disperses crushed dry ice. The device helps to clear fog for planes to land safely.

Seeding operations will take place on Saturday between 6:00 AM and 9:00 PM when Medford Tower is in operation.
