NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
855 am PDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Discussion...Post frontal showers are moving across the forecast 
region this morning. A band of moderate rain is moving through 
Roseburg at this time and had brought visibility at the Roseburg 
Airport down to 1-2 miles. With steering winds out of the west 
southwest this morning..expect showers to continue on the west 
slopes of the Cascades and short term rap13 model shows this to 
continue for the rest of today with showers decreasing a bit in 
the valleys by late morning. However by middle afternoon surface 
heating will help to destabilize the air mass with showers 
developing in the valleys toward this evening. 


Another short wave trough will move inland Friday with a steep 
upper level trough over our area. At first glance the air mass 
could be very unstable for moderate showers and some 
thunderstorms. However neither the GFS nor the nam12 show a very 
low lifted index. As a result I will keep the mention of isolated 
thunderstorms going for Friday afternoon. 


Another warm front is forecast to impact the coast Saturday 
afternoon through Saturday evening. Beyond this weekend models 
indicate ridging along along the West Coast next week. /Fb 


&& 


Aviation...based on 24/12z taf cycle...conditions will remain 
unsettled over the next 24 hours as several impulses pass over the 
area...resulting in widespread showers. Expect MVFR/IFR ceilings and 
visibilities to persist through early morning along the coast and much of the 
west side...with the exception of the Rogue Valley...where VFR 
should prevail...but MVFR ceilings are possible. On the east 
side...expect VFR with periods of MVFR in heavier precipitation 
early morning. Gusty winds currently impacting the coast and the 
east side will continue through much of the day today. A front will 
finally push through the area this evening...bringing another round 
of heavier precipitation and reduced flight conditions. Terrain 
obscurations will be common throughout the taf period...as well as 
mountain wave turbulence downwind of the Cascades and other high 
terrain. -Sven 


&& 


Marine...updated 530 am PDT. South winds will turn more westerly 
and decrease by sunrise dropping below small craft level by late 
morning. However...west swell dominated seas will remain hazardous 
to small craft through Friday night. Another front will bring strong 
south winds and steep seas to the region Saturday...possibly 
reaching gale strength. Sven

Previous discussion... /issued 533 am PDT Thursday Apr 24 2014/ 


Discussion...an upper trough offshore will push east and send a 
cold front into the northwest part of the region this morning, then 
push inland during the day. Snow levels start out near 6000 feet, 
but will lower to around 5000-5500 feet by late afternoon with the 
coolest air mass still offshore by then. Gusty winds are expected 
east of the Cascades with parts of the higher terrain and around 
Summer Lake approaching advisory criteria. Most of the precipitation 
is expected to be along the Coast Range and Cascades where we could 
pick up 0.30-0.50 of an inch. 


A broad upper trough will dig offshore tonight with a strong 
shortwave rotating around the base of the trough into central cal by 
late Friday morning. At the same time cold air aloft with 500mb 
temperatures between -30 and -32 c will move into western Oregon. The 
models also suggest middle level lapse rates between 7-8 degrees 
c/km...lifted indice's in the negative territory over most of the area and cape 
values near 400 j/kg along the Coast Range. For the reasons noted 
above, would not be surprised if there are isolated thunderstorms 
in the above mentioned areas, so have expanded the slight chance 
coverage. 


Snow levels will lower between 3500-4500 feet tonight and 
rise to 4000-5000 Friday, but could temporally lower in heavier 
showers. The highest chance for accumulating snow on roads will be 
near crater and Diamond Lake and Highway 140 where 3-6 inches are 
possible, most between 11 PM PDT Thursday and 11 am PDT Friday. 
Siskiyou Summit could pick up an inch or two if heavier showers move 
overhead by Friday morning, otherwise expect mostly roadside 
accumulations. 


In a nutshell, Friday will be much like Tuesday with showers over 
much of the area, a few sun breaks and cooler temperatures. 


The upper trough will continue to dig southeast and weak ridging 
will build in Saturday morning, but it will quickly flatten out as 
another frontal boundary approaches. The models continue to remain 
in fairly good agreement with the front arriving Saturday night. 
Suspect the GFS is too bullish with the eastward extent of the quantitative precipitation forecast 
and will be following the ec/NAM solution and adjusting probability of precipitation down 
considerably, especially further inland. 


The front will move inland Saturday night, but with nearly a zonal 
flow aloft, expect most of the precipitation to be along and west of 
the Cascades while east of the Cascades will be dry most of the 
time, but windy. A dirty ridge sets up Sunday, but a moist west to 
northwest flow remains and thus expect precipitation to continue 
most of the day and again mainly west of the Cascade crest. 


A transition in the pattern is expected Sunday night as riding 
starts to build into the area and precipitation pushes north of the 
forecast area. Most of next week looks dry and warmer as the upper 
ridge continues to strengthen and build along the Pacific northwest.
