NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
812 PM PST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Update...only a few minor changes were made this evening, mainly 
to adjust temperature trends with the very warm daytime temperatures 
today. Otherwise, the forecast appears to be on track. For more 
information, see the previous discussion below. -Bpn 


&& 


Aviation...for the 09/00z taf cycle...low level wind shear will 
be an aviation hazard at all 4 terminals overnight as short term 
models continue to show 30 to 40 knot winds 1500-2000 feet above 
ground. LIFR conditions will return to the Umpqua valley and 
perhaps the Scott, Illinois and western portions of the rogue 
valleys again overnight into Tuesday morning. The remainder of the 
area will be VFR. /Fb 


&& 


Marine...updated 800 PM PST Monday Feb 8 2016...a thermal trough 
along the coast will move north. Winds will turn southerly 
tonight as a low pressure deepens beyond longitude 130w. A front 
may move near the coastal waters Wednesday. Models are showing 
this front weakening as it moves into the waters but there may be 
a slight increase in south winds and seas. A stronger front will 
move in Thursday into Friday with the potential for Small Craft 
Advisory winds and steep seas. 


Another steep long period swell around 18 seconds is expected to 
move into the waters Thursday night and Friday. -Bpn/fb

Previous discussion... /issued 214 PM PST Monday Feb 8 2016/ 


Short term...the western region situational awareness table this 
morning revealed naefs forecast temperatures for this afternoon 
over southwest Oregon...for this time of year...were to be some 
of the warmest experienced in the the past 30 years. This has 
proven accurate as North Bend at 155 PM PST was 79 and had broken 
its previous record of 69 set in 1963. Also as of at 205 PM PST 
Medford has reached 76 and has also broken its previous record of 
70 set in 1996. To keep this in perspective, medford's all-time 
high temperature reached in February was 79 in 1992, and that 
occurred on the 26th. Lastly, as of 155 PM, Klamath Falls was 58, 
and this ties their previous record of 58 in 1996. Check record 
event reports after 4 PM for official records. 


Strong high pressure aloft will continue to shift slightly 
eastward into Tuesday over the region however the strong easterly 
offshore flow is easing and shifting southeast as surface low 
pressure off the coast expands northward and coastal pressure 
gradients relax. High temperatures over the area are likely to 
continue well above average into Tuesday and Wednesday despite 
the high shifting eastward. Upcoming temperatures anomalies don't 
look nearly as impressive over the area and guidance suggests a 
nudge downward in highs for the next couple days so a bunch of 
additional records aren't anticipated, but would not be surprised 
to see another record or two fall. 


Overnight and morning fog should occur again in the Umpqua and 
Illinois valleys, and into some of western Siskiyou County. 


Low pressure approaches the coast Thursday through Thursday night 
with some shortwave energy in southwest flow producing a chance 
for a little light rain over the coastal waters and Coos, Curry, 
and western Douglas counties by daybreak Friday. Stavish 


Long term...Friday through Monday night...overall, the ridge that 
is bringing the unseasonably mild (warm) weather to much of the 
region early this week will shift to the east late this week into 
the weekend. This will allow Pacific systems to reach the Pacific 
northwest resulting in increasing chances for rain and a modest 
cooling trend. Flat ridging arrives over the weekend into early next 
week, but Pacific disturbances still may ride over the top at times. 


The extended period begins with a ridge axis extending from the 
Desert Southwest northward through the intermountain west. Meanwhile, 
an upper trough over the northeast Pacific will approach the Pacific 
northwest coast. There remains some uncertainty in the timing and 
strength of the trough as it moves into and through the northwest 
Friday into Saturday. The 12z GFS is slower than both the 12z 
ecwmf/Canadian Gem models. For Friday, have blended solutions here to 
Iron out some of the details, with chance to likely probability of precipitation from the 
Cascades west, highest along the coast. Have kept it mostly dry over 
the east side and in Modoc County. Snow levels will be high, mostly 
above 6000 feet. 


Slight chance to chance probability of precipitation continue Friday night into Saturday as 
the upper trough swings through...again highest along and west of 
the Cascades. Snow levels should drop a bit down to 4000 to 5000 
feet by Saturday morning. 


Confidence lessens over the weekend. The ridge will try to rebuild 
Saturday night through Sunday night, but model consensus indicates it 
will remain relatively flat with a warm front passing to the north. 
Model spread is significant enough to preclude large changes to the 
forecast. The 12z GFS builds the ridge fairly robustly, while the 
European model (ecmwf)/Canadian Gem remain flat enough that a Pacific disturbance can 
still bring some rain, mainly west of the Cascades and north of the 
Umpqua Divide. Continuity leaned more toward the wetter solution and 
have left this mostly as is. 


By Monday and Monday night, models show a break between systems, so 
have kept the forecast dry then. Spilde
