NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
245 PM PDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015 


Short term...today and tonight, a shortwave moving up from the 
southwest will allow isolated to scattered thunderstorms to 
develop over eastern and southern portions of the area. This will 
mainly affect northern California and areas east of the Cascades. 
Models continue to indicate the best chance for thunderstorms is 
over western Siskiyou County and east of the Cascades, especially 
near Summer rim. 


This disturbance will shift east on Wednesday and expect mainly 
dry and warm conditions over the area. A surface thermal trough 
will develop along the coast Wednesday night into Thursday. This 
will bring breezy offshore flow to the coastal ridges with a 
Chetco effect bringing warm temperatures to the Brookings area. 
Late Thursday, expect an upper low to shift into the coast of 
central calfiornia then move inland Thursday night. As this 
feature moves inland expect southerly moisture to move into 
southeast portions of the area with a slight chance of 
thunderstorms by Friday morning over northern California zones. As 
the upper level trough shirts northeastward into northeast 
California and northwest Nevada, the chance for thunderstorms will 
increase Friday afternoon and evening, mainly over northern 
California and from the Cascades east in southern Oregon. 


Areas of smoke will continue to affect areas from the Cascades 
west at least through thus weekend as daytime north to northwest 
flow prevails. Offshore flow on Thursday may bring less smoke to 
the Cascades but increased smoke to the Curry coast. 


Long term...Saturday through early next week...models are showing 
an upper low will gradually moves down the coast of British 
Columbia and becomes centered off the coast of Washington Sunday 
night into Monday. Ahead of this feature, lingering moisture and 
instability will bring a slight chance of thunderstorms from the 
Cascades east and over northern California on Saturday. Then on 
Sunday with the low shifting further south and a ridge 
strengthening inland, expect a slight chance of thunderstorms over 
central and eastern portions of the area, with best chances from 
the western Cascade foothills in Oregon east into the Cascades and 
northern Klamath County. South to southwest 700 mb winds increase 
on Sunday and may see some gusty winds develop over the higher 
terrain especially in the Cascades. Models are showing better 
agreement with the upper trough shifting inland on Monday into 
Tuesday with a slight chance of showers or thunderstorms possible 
in central and eastern portions of the area. 


The southern portion of the trough may cutoff and bring a cutoff 
low to northern California around Wednesday. However, confidence 
is low in the details for Wednesday given the variability in model 
ensemble forecasts on whether a cutoff low will develop and where 
it may be positioned. 




&& 


Aviation...for the 04/18z taf cycle...along the coast...areas of 
IFR remain off shore except for areas of IFR/MVFR ceilings near 
Brookings...then low level stratus returns to the coast early this 
evening. For the west side valleys, areas of MVFR and IFR visibilities in 
smoke will persist through this evening. North west flow will help 
keep rbg in VFR conditions this afternoon. For the Cascades east 
and Siskiyous south, VFR conditions will prevail through this 
evening except for local MVFR visibilities in smoke. Isolated to 
scattered thunderstorms will occur again this afternoon and 
evening from Siskiyou County NE into the Cascades and Klamath/lake 
counties. /Smith 


&& 


Marine...updated 230 PM PDT Tuesday 4 August 2015...high pressure 
will build offshore and a thermal trough will develop along the 
coast then strengthen into Thursday. North winds and seas will build 
tonight/Wednesday and remain moderate through Thursday morning. Then 
winds will strengthen further Thursday afternoon and 
evening...possibly reaching gale force over the southern outer 
waters Thursday afternoon and evening. The thermal trough will 
weaken Friday into Saturday. North winds and seas will ease at that 
time. Spilde 


&& 


Fire weather...updated 200 PM PDT Tuesday 4 August 2015...models 
have trended towards increased chances for convective activity for 
the afternoon and evening today. While the bulk of model solutions 
show a swath of instability across northern California and from 
the Cascades east in Oregon, there is quite a difference in the 
precipitation outlook. However, the higher resolution NAM and hrrr 
precipitation fields are depicting an area of scattered 
thunderstorms developing over western Siskiyou County late this 
afternoon, and another area over lake and Klamath counties late 
this afternoon and evening. This appears to be the result of a 
convergence of several factors, including a weak surface boundary, 
the passage of the upper level trough and associated vorticity, 
and some jet support aloft. These factors, while existing only a 
short time over Siskiyou County, may last well into the night 
farther east, and therefore nocturnal storms are not out of the 
question east of the Cascades. 


Despite high levels of uncertainty, have opted to err on the side of 
caution, especially given the current status of firefighting 
resources, and issued a red flag warning for the above areas. Some 
storms may begin dry, but should trend wetter as the evening 
progresses. Until then, gusty winds are of primary concern. Overall, 
lighting has the potential to produce numerous starts, especially 
given the ignition rate over the past several days. 


Thunderstorms should come to an end by Wednesday morning, and no 
other convection is expected until the weekend. Until then, 
temperatures and humidities should remain steady, although there may 
be periods of moderate overnight recoveries across ridge lines at 
varying times through the week and this weekend. Gusty winds may 
also be an issue this weekend with the passage of a potentially 
strong upper level trough. -Bpn
