 Special Statement  Statement as of 2:35 PM PDT on June 29, 2015


... Hot temperatures expected midweek through the Holiday
weekend with a chance of thunderstorms Independence day...

An upper ridge of high pressure is expected to build northwest
into Oregon Tuesday and lasting into the Holiday weekend. This
will likely bring another round of hot temperatures to virtually
all interior locations. It's possible records will get
broken... especially Thursday... Friday and Saturday. Also, less
than typical relief will occur at night with low temperatures
remaining well above normal during the latter half of the week and
into the weekend.

This pattern has the potential to produce an increase in
monsoonal moisture and instability the latter part of the week,
making thunderstorms possible Thursday afternoon through the
Independence day weekend.

Keep the following tips in mind during the upcoming hot weather.
Drink plenty of water and eat lightly. Wear light, loose-fitting
clothing and limit physical activity. If outdoors, wear sunscreen
and seek shaded areas. Never leave children... disabled
persons... or pets unattended in parked vehicles.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
401 am PDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Discussion...an upper high is centered over Utah this morning...and upper 
ridging will extend westward and build with time...reaching our 
County Warning Area as a 595dm high on Thursday afternoon. 


Models are in good agreement through Friday in terms of 
temperatures. We have issued a heat advisory at npwmfr for west side 
interior valleys. Daily records will likely be broken...with 
Thursday being the hottest day. Model guidance has been consistent 
in showing temperatures at or just above the last round of record 
breaking temperatures that occurred late last week. In 
general...this heat event looks like it will be a once in 5 year 
event. Needless to say...this will be the hottest June on record for 
much of the County Warning Area...with previous records being destroyed by 3-4 
degrees fahrenheit. 


Thunderstorm chances are minimal today and Wednesday...with very 
little in the way of instability...moisture...or shortwave activity. 
Today we have a slight chance of thunder over mainly Modoc and lake 
counties due to a weak shortwave transiting from southeast to 
northwest...and 850mb computed Li values near zero. Tomorrow the 
shortwave swings further north...and we have a slight chance of 
thunderstorms near the favored area for development over the 
Cascades north of Crater Lake. 


By Thursday the upper ridge axis is right overhead...and this will 
keep thunderstorm chances confined to California and limited to 
slight chance...with some instability and moisture but little to no 
trigger. 


Models diverge some from Saturday through early next week...with the 
ec remaining plain hot while the GFS suggests gradual cooling but 
still above normal. 


&& 


Aviation...for the 30/06z taf cycle...along the coast...areas of 
MVFR/IFR ceilings will burn back to the coast by late morning 
Tuesday...then clear a bit offshore Tuesday afternoon. Over 
inland areas...VFR conditions will prevail through Tuesday. 




&& 


Marine...updated 300 am PDT Tuesday 30 June 2015...a thermal 
trough will strengthen near the coast today...weaken slightly 
Wednesday into Thursday...then persist into the weekend. Advisory 
level north winds and steep seas will develop early today and 
continue through Wednesday evening. Gales and very steep hazardous 
seas will develop in the outer waters south of Cape Blanco this 
afternoon into Wednesday morning. Winds and waves will only reach 
Small Craft Advisory levels over the inner waters. High confidence 
in a Small Craft Advisory through the week for the outer waters. 
The pattern will not change until Sunday. 


&& 


Fire weather...updated 200 PM PDT Monday 29 June 2015...today, a 
modest increase in moisture and high temperatures a few to several 
degrees higher than today will result in a slight chance of 
afternoon and evening thunderstorms over the Warner Mountains 
into southern portions of lake and Harney counties. High pressure 
will strengthen over southern Utah this evening and offshore low 
level flow will develop on the southern coastal ranges. This 
pattern will persist through Friday with the ridge continuing to 
strengthen. This will bring very hot near record to record 
breaking temperatures to the area before a modest cooling trend 
begins when the ridge shifts east on Saturday. It will also bring 
some buildups over the higher terrain of northern California on 
Wednesday then a slight chance of thunderstorms on Thursday over 
northern California before an increased probability of 
thunderstorms Friday into the weekend. /Dw
