NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
919 PM PST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Discussion...a moist frontal system is located offshore and will 
slowly push into the coast waters tonight then into the coast 
Thursday morning. This front will stall over western portions of 
the area Thursday and then remain in the area fluctuating in 
position Thursday night through Friday. This is expected to bring 
a very moist pattern to northern and western portions of the area 
Thursday...then over much of the area Friday. 


Initially, rain is expected to spread into the coastal areas 
tonight. Then rain will spread inland from the coast into Douglas 
County, into the southern Oregon Cascades and into portions of 
Josephine and northern Jackson County. East of the Cascades 
expect rain to spread into northern Klamath and Northern Lake 
County during the day. Of note is that heavy rainfall is possible 
over Curry County Thursday and Thursday night with additional 
moderate to locally heavy rainfall possible Friday and Friday 
night for the Curry County area. This front will remain in 
position during the day Thursday, sagging slightly further south 
by Thursday evening which may bring rain into southern portions of 
the County Warning Area. The front remains in the vicinity Thursday night, 
fluctuating slightly in position. Then Friday into early Saturday, 
a low to the north shifting southward and towards the area will 
help push the front inland bringing precipitation to much of the 
County Warning Area. 


Of concern is how much snow levels will lower Saturday. Models 
vary on the position of the front as it slowly shifts south 
Saturday into Saturday night and the position of the upper trough 
that moves down from the north. The upper trough has the potential 
to bring a very cold air mass with lowered snow levels to northern 
portions of the County Warning Area. The NAM is the coldest solution with the 
operational GFS showing much less cold air moving into the area. 
The European model (ecmwf) and sref seem to be the middle solutions and indicate 
that snow levels may lower to pass levels in the southern Oregon 
Cascades with lower passes including Sexton Summit possibly affect by 
snow or a rain snow mix Saturday. The coldest air is expected 
over Douglas County and northern Coos County as well as the 
Chemult area where lower snow levels, possibly down to 2000 ft, 
may occur Saturday in showers. Along with the variability in 
model solutions for the cold air and snow levels there is also 
variability in the amount of showers Saturday afternoon and 
evening as this cold air moves into the area. In general though 
models indicate showers being mainly light during this period. 


&& 


Aviation...based on the 27/00z taf cycle... 
a strong inversion between 1000ft and 2500ft above ground level on the Medford 
afternoon sounding continues to trap low clouds and moisture below 
it over the interior west side despite moderate to strong winds just 
above it. Due to the stronger winds aloft and thickening cloud cover 
over the area, we do not expect fog to be as extensive in coverage 
and duration tonight through Thanksgiving morning as it was this 
past morning. We do still expect IFR to LIFR ceilings from 03z 
through 19z, particularly in the in the Rogue Valley. Otherwise, the 
incoming frontal system is expect to result in MVFR ceiling 
conditions along the coast late Thursday morning through Thursday 
night. Some wind shear will occur along and near the coast tonight 
and light to moderate low level turbulence should be expected across 
all areas over the next 24 hours as the frontal system pushes inland 
and the inversion weakens. Rain will push onto the coast and the 
west side of Oregon during the day on Thursday. Btl 


&& 


Marine...updated 300 PM PST Wednesday Nov 26 2014... south winds and wind 
waves will continue to increase ahead of an incoming frontal system 
into Thursday morning. Seas will become southwest and 
chaotic...building to a steep to very steep 10 to 15 feet. Another 
frontal wave on Friday will cause winds and seas to surge upward 
again. Saturday through early next week low pressure will approach 
the coast from the southwest bringing more moisture and wind. 
However...the bulk of the hazardous weather this weekend into early 
next week is most likely to remain south of the area in the 
California coastal waters. 




&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 728 PM PST Wednesday Nov 26 2014/ 


Short term...a frontal boundary will move into the coastal 
waters tonight. Southwest winds aloft could surface for a few 
hours at the higher elevations and in favored location such as the 
part of Highway 31 between Summer Lake and Paisley. The front is 
expected to bring rain to the coastal counties with rain spreading 
into Douglas County by late morning. Both the GFS and the NAM show 
a good southwest moisture flux into Curry County with the boundary 
lying stationary across central Siskiyou County. Over the next two 
days this boundary is expected to move back and forth. As a result 
we will see more or less prolonged rain across southwest Oregon 
and northwest California through Saturday, the Klamath and Goose 
Lake basins included. Snow levels will stay above 6000 feet 
through Saturday and snow is not expected over the passes. 


On Friday..also expect moderately southeast-northwest surface pressure gradient 
which will increase winds across the Shasta Valley Friday afternoon. 
Right now the gradient does not appear strong enough to affect the 
Rogue Valley but south end of Jackson County such as Ashland could 
see breezy south winds on Friday. Moreover winds at 700mb increase 
to around 50kts and this will likely affect the Warner Mountains 
and part of Highway 31 between Summer Lake and Paisley in Lake 
County again on Friday afternoon and Friday night. 


On Saturday a cold front will move south into north-central 
Oregon. Guidance indicates that the leading edge of the cold air 
will begin to filter into northern part of our forecast area. At 
this point it looks like the cold air will only make it as far 
south as Chemult or Silver Lake. This will present a forecast 
challenge for Sunday as we are expecting a warmer air aloft 
pushing northward on Sunday. /Fb 


Long term...Sunday through Wednesday night...models have backed 
off on the arrival of a potent low pressure center by roughly 24 
hours. This has pushed a potential heavy wet snow event for areas in 
and around Montana Shasta city away from the busy travel day of Sunday, 
and instead is focusing the event more into Monday night and 
Tuesday. Again, there is good confidence that a large, very moist 
system will move ashore over California early next week, but 
confidence in the timing and other details remains much lower. 


The extended period begins with the aforementioned low stationed 
well offshore of California, but a wave orbiting this low will push 
a warm front into northern California and southern Oregon from the 
south during the day Sunday. This will spread overrunning 
precipitation into the area, and depending on the timing and the 
extent of cold air remaining trapped at the surface, could result in 
a period of snow or potentially even some ice over portions of the 
east side Sunday night into Monday. Uncertainty remains high in this 
scenario, but it does bare watching over the next several days. 


Model solutions depict the low itself will finally push ashore 
sometime between Monday night and Tuesday night, with a very rich 
plume of moisture flowing up the Central Valley of California into 
the Shasta Highlands. The same concerns remain today as yesterday, 
focusing on the timing of the heaviest upslope precipitation, and 
the question of how far will snow levels drop in that area. Similar 
events in the past have produced very heavy wet snow events in the 
area of Montana Shasta, and the same potential exists here, thus this 
event will need to be monitored over the next several days as well. 


Whatever the resulting chain of events brings, the forecast will 
remain unsettled during the extended term, with well above normal 
chances for precipitation and temperatures ranging from near to 
slightly above seasonal normals. -Bpn
