NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
232 PM PDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Discussion...the surface low, which tracked a bit further 
offshore than expected this morning, has moved well to the north 
and is now making its way onshore along Vancouver Island. Winds 
have already started to diminish, but daytime mixing will keep 
breezy winds across the area through this evening. Radar imagery 
shows some showers continuing along the coast, but amounts should 
be light, and little to no rain should make it far inland. 


A secondary front will approach the area and pass through the region 
late this evening and tonight. This should bring another round of 
wind and rain to the coast and west side, but nowhere near the 
extent as seen this morning. Expect a quarter inch to a half inch at 
the coast and in the coastal ranges, with less than a tenth for the 
rest of the west side. Again, very little moisture is expected to 
make it east of the Cascades. The cooler air will also keep area 
temperatures well below normal for this time of year. 


After a brief period of ridging and near normal temperatures Monday 
into Tuesday morning, another trough is forecast to dig south over 
the Pacific northwest, and this will bring another chance for 
precipitation Tuesday night into Wednesday. Models have backed off 
ab it with the moisture content with this system, so have dropped 
probability of precipitation a bit to come into line with the new thinking. Current 
solutions would suggest that the event would be similar to the 
frontal passage tonight. 


Looking towards the end of the week, the GFS and European model (ecmwf) continue to 
keep the region under what would normally be considered a fall 
pattern. Therefore, have kept below normal temperatures in place 
through the remainder of the term. The models are not resolving any 
particular wave that would produce precipitation, so have kept much 
of the extended dry. However, given the pattern, would not be 
surprised if a late week trough is resolved by the models in later 
runs. -Bpn 


&& 


Aviation...for the 29/18z taf cycle...isolated showers may bring 
brief MVFR conditions today, and occasional mountain obscurations 
are expected. Otherwise, conditions will be VFR through this 
afternoon. Gusty southwest winds will create mountain wave 
turbulence and bumpy rides into area terminals through the 
afternoon. A front will bring light rain and MVFR conditions to the 
coast and Umpqua late this evening and overnight. -Wright 


&& 


Marine...updated 830 am PDT Saturday 29 August 2015... the surface 
low has moved slightly farther north than previously anticipated. 
Thus, winds and seas will not be as strong as forecast. However, 
conditions will remain very hazardous, with gales and very steep seas 
continuing through the morning and afternoon. With good vertical 
motion indicated in the heavier rain, some isolated storm force 
gusts are still possible, but due to the more northerly track, have 
dropped the Storm Warning. Southerly seas will reach warning 
conditions for most of the area even with the slightly weaker than 
expected winds, with very steep wind driven seas likely peaking in 
the 14 to 17 foot range from Gold Beach northward. South winds and 
elevated seas will begin to subside this afternoon into this 
evening. Showers and lighter winds are expected Sunday. -Bpn/cirrocumulus 


&& 


Fire weather...updated 200 PM PDT Saturday 29 August 2015...general 
broad upper troughiness is expected to produce cool, moist, onshore 
flow over the entire region through the upcoming week. This will 
result in below normal temperatures and above normal humidities with 
typical diurnally driven wind conditions. A weak cold front will 
bring light rain to west side locations tonight into Sunday morning, 
then the next chance for substantial precipitation (mainly west 
side) comes Wednesday into Thursday as another front moves through.
