 Air Stagnation Advisory  Statement as of 2:48 am PST on January 30, 2015


... Air stagnation advisory remains in effect until 1 PM PST
Sunday...

An air stagnation advisory remains in effect until 1 PM PST
Sunday.

* Synopsis: valley inversions will remain strong through at least
Sunday morning. A front is expected to move through later Sunday
and Sunday night which will disrupt the inversions and improve
air quality.

* Locations include: Grants Pass... Cave Junction... Medford...
Ashland... drain... Elkton... Roseburg... Sutherlin... green...
Myrtle Creek... Canyonville.

* Impacts: air quality will deteriorate if significant
pollution particulates accumulate. These particulates could
make breathing more difficult for those with respiratory
ailments.

* View the hazard area in detail at http://go.USA.Gov/zyv5

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An air stagnation advisory indicates that... due to limited
movement of an air mass across the advisory area... pollution
could increase to levels that affect health.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
926 am PST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Discussion...once again low clouds and areas of fog are mostly 
confined to the Westside valleys in the same locations as 
previous mornings. However the one change from yesterday morning 
is the extent of low clouds in Lake County and northern Klamath 
County. The morning sounding shows a deeper moisture layer 
compared to yesterday so it could take longer for the low clouds 
and fog to burn off. Thus have adjusted the sky cover and fog 
forecast to represent this idea for today. 


Much of the same is expected Saturday, then the first of a couple 
of fronts will move into the area Sunday morning. This front may 
finally be enough to mix out the atmosphere. -Petrucelli 


&& 


Aviation...IFR and local LIFR ceilings will persist in the Westside 
valleys through the morning. Current guidance shows clouds breaking 
up around 21z, but it's possible it does not break out at all in 
rosegurg and Grants Pass. Also low clouds with mountain obscurations 
will impact most of Lake County north and east of Lakeview through 
early afternoon. Elsewhere VFR conditions will continue including 
the coast and 5 nm from shore. -Petrucelli 


&& 


Marine...updated 0830 am Friday 30 January 2015...high pressure 
will persist offshore today and a thermal trough will strengthen 
along the coast, resulting in moderate northerly winds with steep 
seas over portions of the area today and tonight. Strongest winds 
are expected south of Cape Blanco and steep seas are expected from 
Bandon south. Winds will gradually weaken tonight into Saturday, 
then a front will approach Saturday night and Sunday, bringing weak 
south winds. Moderate west swell will build into the waters late 
Sunday through Monday night. Additional fronts are expected early 
next week, then late in the week, models indicate the potential for 
a strong front to slowly move into the waters bringing possible gale 
force winds with very steep seas. -Cc/bpn 




&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 337 am PST Friday Jan 30 2015/ 


Discussion...upper ridging will build over the area the next few 
days as weak upper troughing is nudged out by high pressure. The 
troughing has cooled the air mass some...weakening inversions a 
touch...but for all practical purposes we are still in a stagnant 
weather pattern in most valley locations. Yesterday morning was 
the shortest-duration of low clouds and fog in Medford in more 
than a week...and believe clearing will follow a similar pattern today. 
Most locations should see a similar amount...if not a bit more...sunshine 
today than previous days...with the Grants Pass area and Umpqua 
valley featuring the longest period of low clouds and fog 
today...with Medford expected to clear out later this morning. 


East of the Cascades...stagnant air will continue for most 
places...but a tight northeast to southwest presure gradient is 
generating breezy conditions in Southern Lake County...so have 
canceled the air stagnation advisory due to the winds mixing up the 
atmosphere enough to clear the air. Other valley locations will keep 
stagnant air through Sunday morning at least...and this product is 
found at npwmfr. Guidance is half-hearted in bringing a sustained 
period of breezy conditions to Klamath Falls...so have kept the air 
stagnation advisory going there. 


Away from these inland valleys...the coast and mountains will warm 
up the next couple days...with peak warmth on Saturday. Offshore 
flow at the Curry County coast was highlighted well on previous 
shift so have left 70 degree temperatures at Brookings on Saturday. 
Inland valley temperatures will be highly dependent on the evolution 
of low clouds and fog...and dayshift may have to consider increasing 
Medford-area temperatures if the trend of earlier clearing 
continues...especially with the air mass warming on Saturday. 


On Sunday the weather pattern changes...with widespread rain chances 
for the first time in two weeks. The first front on Sunday will 
likely drop most of its rainfall at the coast and Umpqua basin as it 
rides over the leftover ridging. Monday through Wednesday a series 
fronts ride over a gradually flattening ridge...which simply means 
snow levels will be high with these systems and precipitation 
generally won't be heavy. Snow levels are forecast to remain 6500 
feet or higher through the middle of the week. 


The latest few runs of the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show an atmospheric river 
event Thursday into Friday...bringing the potential for significant 
rainfall and gusty winds to a large part of southern Oregon and 
northern California. Unfortunately for the drought situation...snow 
levels are forecast to remain high through this system. We have 
increased probability of precipitation and winds some for this event...but will wait for a 
few more runs of consistency to bring these elements up event 
further. One thing is fairly clear...the upper ridge does look like 
it's moving into the Great Basin area...leaving the West Coast more 
vulnerable to several rounds of significant precipitation...something 
we haven't seen in quite a while. 


Aviation...based on the 30/06z taf cycle...IFR/LIFR low 
clouds/fog in the umqua basin and Illinois and rogue valleys will 
expand to many of the other west side valleys this morning, 
including at kmfr. Also...IFR conditions are expected to continue 
at the coast north of Cape Blanco. Areas near the coast can 
expect to improve to VFR quickly after sunrise...but break out 
times will be later over the interior valleys...generally between 
18z (kmfr) and 21z (krbg). Confidence in the break out at krbg is 
a bit lower than at other locations since IFR stratus persisted on 
Thursday. Elsewhere, expect VFR through tonight. 


Marine...updated at 330 am Friday 30 January 2015...high 
pressure offshore will build through the afternoon and produce 
moderate northerly winds with increased wind chop...especially 
south of Cape Blanco. Winds will weaken slightly tonight then 
more noticeably Saturday through Saturday night before a front 
approaches. The front will usher in a change in the pattern. Wind 
direction will back to south and west swell will become moderate 
on Sunday then another front may bring winds that would be 
hazardous to small craft on Monday with seas increasing into 
Tuesday. /Dw
