NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
902 PM PDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Short term...a cold front approaching the area will spread light rain 
into coastal areas of southern Oregon tonight. Then as the front 
pushes into the coast Wednesday and inland Wednesday night into 
Thursday, expect widespread rain over most the area with moderate 
to heavy rain along the coast. 


Models remain on track with the slow movement of this front 
as it pushes inland Wednesday through Thursday morning. As this 
front pushes into the coast tonight and Wednesday, expect winds 
to increase along the coast and over the coastal waters. Light 
rain is beginning to develop along coastal areas this evening and 
will increase along the coast and into the coastal mountains 
through the day on Wednesday. Moderate to locally heavy rain is 
expected to develop in coastal areas Wednesday afternoon and 
Wednesday night. Some areas of light rain will spread inland to 
the Cascades in southern Oregon tonight into Wednesday morning, 
mainly over the mountains and into the Umpqua. Then expect rain to 
increase across the inland areas late Wednesday afternoon through 
Thursday morning as the front pushes into the Cascades then stalls 
over southeast Oregon and northern California. 


Rainfall amounts expected with this frontal system are around 3 
to 4 inches along the coast tonight through Thursday morning. 
Inland, west of the Cascades, expect rainfall totals around 0.5 
to 2 inches, with greatest amounts in the mountains and into the 
Umpqua valley. East of the Cascades, rainfall amounts with the 
front will be less, around 0.10 to 0.75 inches, with highest amounts 
in northern Klamath County and lowest amounts over Modoc and 
Eastern Lake counties. 




Winds will also increase over inland areas on Wednesday with 
most areas expected to become breezy and gusty by Wednesday 
afternoon and into Wednesday evening. Over the inland areas, strongest 
winds will develop over the mountains, into the Shasta Valley and 
near Summer Lake. Wind advisories are currently in effect for the 
southern Shasta Valley and Summer Lake where winds are expected to 
reach 30 miles per hour with gusts to 50 miles per hour. 




On Thursday, models continue to indicate that showers will move 
into northwestern portions of the area while rain will continue 
for southeast portions due to the stalled front. Precipitation 
rates will decrease with the front Thursday though as the moisture 
plume shifts southward. 


&& 


Aviation...22/00z taf cycle... 
a frontal system will approach the coast this evening increasing 
southerly flow sharply above the surface. This will result in the 
potential for low-level wind shear at koth where the surface winds 
will be comparatively weak. The low level wind shear risk begins around 03z and 
extends through about 18z Wednesday. Meanwhile, ceilings along the coast 
will lower from VFR this evening to MVFR overnight into Wednesday 
with terrain obscurations over the Coast Ranges. Rain will also move 
onshore this evening and become moderate at times there by sunrise. 
Inland, VFR will prevail at the taf sites through much of Wednesday, 
though ceilings will lower along and west of the Cascades leading to 
partial terrain obscuration. Steadier rain probably won't begin 
though until later in afternoon at krbg or the evening at kmfr. 
Gusty southeast winds will develop in the Shasta Valley Wednesday. 
Also expect some breezy south winds over the east side. Spilde 


&& 


Marine...updated 300 PM PDT Tuesday 21 Oct 2014... 
a strong frontal system will move through the marine waters 
overnight into Wednesday. Gale force winds will spread from north to 
south this evening reaching southern and eastern portions by 
Wednesday morning then continuing through the day. Heavy west swell 
will combine with increasing wind waves resulting in chaotic and 
dangerous seas. Expect wind and sea conditions to improve a little 
from northwest to southeast Wednesday afternoon and night as the 
front moves onshore. Seas will be dominated by westerly swell 
Thursday into Friday. Confidence is increasing that we'll see yet 
another strong storm system move through the coastal waters Friday 
night into Saturday with strong winds and very hazardous seas. Spilde

Previous discussion... /issued 309 PM PDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014/ 


Short term...the atmosphere will remain quiet tonight as we are 
in between two storms. The next front is expected to bring winds 
to the coastal waters tonight with winds spreading inland on 
Wednesday. Based on Redding to Medford gradient between 4-5 mb 
Wednesday afternoon..I have issued a Wind Advisory for the Shasta 
Valley for Wednesday afternoon through evening. In addition 
southwest wind at 700mb is around 50kts and have also added the 
Summer Lake area of Highway 31 in the Wind Advisory tomorrow 
evening. Also expect gusty southeast winds for the Rogue Valley 
but the gradients dont appear strong enough for a Wind Advisory 
here in Medford. This front has tapped into plenty of moisture and 
starting Wednesday afternoon..the Curry County coast could see 3-4 
inches of rain. Downsloping will keep rain out of the Rogue Valley 
until Wednesday night and about a quarter to half inch can be 
expected. The front and most of the rain are expected to move 
through the area by Thursday morning...with showers in the area 
Thursday. Another round of moderate rain is expected on Friday as 
another front moves inland. /Fb 


Long term...Saturday, October 25th through Tuesday, October 29th. 
Near to slightly above average temperatures are expected during this 
time period along with above normal precipitation. 


More specifically, an active southwest flow storm track will persist 
over the the forecast are through the period. Friday night surface 
low pressure around 990 millibars is expected to move inside of 130 
west longitude and then will make landfall over the olympic 
peninsula in western Washington or Vancouver Island, British 
Columbia. Precipitable water values will be near 1.25 inches as this 
system arrives at our coastline. With the low centered well north of 
the area, the low level wind trajectory with this frontal system 
will be predominately from the south. This means that coastal 
mountains westward and northern California stand to see the most 
precipitation from this frontal system, but it does appear the cold 
front from it will remain intact into at least the Cascades. 


Sunday into Monday looks to be a mild reprieve in the wet weather as 
transient high pressure briefly builds across the area and then 
departs. The next frontal system, which will contain the remnants of 
Hurricane Ana, which recently affected Hawaii, is due in with more 
wind and rain late Monday into Tuesday. Btl
