NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
234 PM PDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Discussion...the weather will remain relatively quiet through 
the week, on the public side anyway. There will be numerous fire 
and marine issues through this time, and these will be discussed 
further below. The thermal trough continues to be the primary 
driver behind the forecast for the next week. Models are in good 
agreement with the general progression of both the strength and 
northward expansion of the trough, therefore, confidence remains 
high in a dry and very warm week with nearly no indication of 
precipitation anytime soon. Smoke and haze will also continue to 
be an issue through the week, especially over northern California 
and in the vicinity of and downwind from any other fires that 
continue to burn in the area. 


A dry cold front will approach the region tonight, however 
the cooler air will not be able to penetrate very far into the 
forecast area. The major impact of the front will be to increase 
the temperature difference between the thermal tough to the south 
and the cooler air to the north. The result will be increased 
offshore winds through Thursday and very dry air over the area. 
The thermal trough will then expand northwards through the 
week, resulting in temperatures across the area that are more 
Akin to early August than early September. In fact, most areas can 
expect to see day time high temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees above 
normal by the weekend. 


There may be some relief by early next week, as models are 
producing a stronger, and more importantly, wetter system entering 
the Pacific northwest. However, the system has been trending 
dryer and slower over the past several runs. Uncertainty is very 
high, so have left mention of probability of precipitation out of the forecast at this 
time. -Bpn 




&& 


Aviation...based on the 02/18z taf cycle...areas of IFR ceilings/visibilities 
will develop along the north coast and in the Coquille Valley late 
tonight...persisting through middle-morning Wednesday. Areas of 
reduced visibilities will continue in western Siskiyou County and 
over the southern Cascades due to smoke from wildfires. 
Otherwise...clear skies will persist for the next 24 hours. 




&& 


Marine...updated 200 PM PDT Tuesday 2 Sep 2014...north winds will 
increase into this evening with Small Craft Advisory winds and steep 
to very steep wind wave dominated seas of up to 15 feet. Winds and 
seas will be highest over the outer waters south of Gold Beach...but 
very steep seas will cover the area south of Cape Arago and beyond 5 
nm from shore through Thursday night. The north winds will reach a 
peak at gale force during Wednesday afternoon and evening. Winds 
along the coast out to 5 nm are not expected to be as strong... 
however wind driven seas from the outer waters will move towards the 
coast causing them to be choppy. The thermal trough will shift west 
Friday which will result in decreasing winds and seas. 


&& 


Fire weather...humidity recoveries this morning are poor to 
moderate at ridge tops and that will continue to be the case through 
the week. A dry cold front will produce breezy northerly winds 
on the west side and westerly winds on the east side of the Cascades 
this afternoon and evening with warmer and drier conditions compared 
to Monday as a thermal trough moves inland. Behind the front, 
rh's drop quickly..especially at the ridge level with increasing 
offshore winds from the Cascades westward tonight. The offshore will 
develop across the east side by Thursday morning. Cooler air aloft 
will move in Saturday...bringing increased instability. However the 
flow preceding it is from the east and there will not be enough 
moisture to allow any deep convection to form.
