NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
916 am PDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Discussion...the cold front has moved onshore and extends from 
central Douglas County SW to the Illinois Valley. South to north 
pressure gradient has decreases and will be canceling the Wind 
Advisory for the Shasta Valley. Rainfall at the Coast Range from 2 
to 4 inches with the highest amount so far around 5 inches at Red 
Mound and 4.5 inches near Cape Ferrelo. The rest of today will be 
cloudy with rain showers on and off...for SW Oregon until early 
afternoon but showers continuing all day for east of the Cascades 
as the cold front continues to March east. The frontal boundary is 
expected to push east and south of our forecast area by this 
evening. However there will still be plenty of low level moisture. 
With the front stalling just east of our forecast area..we should 
continue to see showers into the Cascades and Siskiyous mtns, as 
well as most of Siskiyou County. 


Next low pressure is on track to move into the coastal waters late 
Friday night and Saturday morning. The track of this low is 
important and will determine whether or not we will see very 
strong winds in the coastal waters. Confidence is high that we 
will see at least advisory level winds at the higher elevation and 
in the Shasta Valley. /Fb 


&& 


Aviation...based on the 23/12z taf cycle... 
a front is bringing rain to much of the region this morning. For 
most of the area west of the Cascades and along the coast, MVFR will 
be the rule through the morning, although periods of heavier 
rainfall could result in IFR conditions here and there. In the Rogue 
Valley and the valleys of northern California, as well as the east 
side, VFR will prevail, with periods of MVFR within areas of heavier 
precipitation. Steady rain will change to showers once the front 
passes late this morning and early this afternoon, and showers will 
continue through the remainder of the taf period. Tonight, increased 
low level moisture and cooler air is likely to result in areas of 
fog and low stratus at most of the terminals...although middle tonight 
level clouds could be a limiting factor. Terrain obscuration will be 
widespread and ongoing throughout the next 24 hours. -Bpn 


&& 


Marine...updated 0200 am PDT Wednesday 22 Oct 2014... 
winds have weakened early this morning...but seas will remain 
elevated and hazardous to small craft due to moderate west swell 
early this morning through tonight. There will be a lull in both 
winds and seas Friday. Models are coming into better agreement with 
the Friday night/Saturday system. All show a deepening surface low 
moving northward along the 130 west benchmark Friday night then 
northeastward inside 130 west Saturday. Very strong south winds will 
develop ahead of this system Friday night with high end gale 
conditions and possible storm force gusts Saturday, along with 20 
foot seas or greater. Stay tuned for further updates regarding this 
potential big wind-maker. Conditions will improve through the 
remainder of the weekend, and after another brief round of calmer 
winds and seas, another front is expected early next week. -Cc/bpn

Previous discussion... /issued 100 am PDT Thursday Oct 23 2014/ 


Discussion...23/00z NAM/GFS in. 


A front is now pushing through the Medford County Warning Area. Light to moderate 
rain is occurring with the weakening frontal boundary. 
Meanwhile...behind the front...there is lots of shower activity. A 
few thunderstorms may move into the coastal waters later this 
morning. 


The long wave trough remains offshore with strong southwest flow 
aloft. Short waves ejecting from the trough will bring rounds of 
showers to the area Thursday...but most of the energy in the 
short waves will be directed to the north of the County Warning Area. The surface 
front will stall over the southern and eastern portions of the 
Medford County Warning Area Thursday. 


Rainfall amounts for this current storm system have been adjusted 
down some through Thursday evening for areas inland from the 
coast...but have left 3 to 5 inch amounts intact for the coast 
and coastal mountain areas...with most of the rain there expected 
through 5am PDT Thursday. Other amounts will be 1.3 to 2.3 inches 
in Douglas County...1-3 inches in Josephine County, and 0.50" to 
1.5" in Jackson County. 0.10" to 0.50" inches will fall in the 
east side valleys...decreasing from west to east. 


The offshore upper trough will deepen and start to shear Friday. 
In response a long wave ridge will pump up over the intermountain 
states...and this will lift the front back north as a warm front 
Friday. Expect widespread light precipitation with the front as it 
moves through the area. 


There will be a break in the precipitation Friday night as the 
warm front clears to the north. Conditions will then get quite 
interesting offshore as a low winds up under the southern portion 
of the shearing trough. This low will deepen as it tracks north 
northeast inside 130w. The track and deepening of the low will be 
critical as far as high winds at the coast are concerned. At this 
time it looks like the low will track far enough offshore and will 
not be strong enough...around 990 mb...for a warning along the 
coast...where there will be a significant offshore component to 
the wind. However...storm force winds may develop over the outer 
coastal waters. Winds aloft combined with strong southerly gradients 
may provide enough support for high winds in the Shasta Valley and 
east of the Cascades around Summer Lake. 


Widespread moderate precipitation will move onshore Saturday 
afternoon and evening. Saturday night will be quite wet from the 
Cascades west with lighter precipitation east of the Cascades. 


The southern branch system will move onshore to the north 
Saturday night and what's left of the long wave trough will move 
onshore Saturday night and through the Medford County Warning Area Sunday. Expect 
showers to continue through Sunday...but they will be diminishing 
with time. 


Extended discussion from the Wednesday afternoon afd...Monday 
through Wednesday. Numerical models indicate about two frontal 
systems next week with Monday being dry for most locations away 
from the coast. Timing of the fronts next week is a bit in 
question...but suffice it to say that the weather pattern does 
look to remain active with a frontal system every 2-3 days. The 
overall parent trough over the area sinks southward next week...so 
expect snow levels will likely come down to the 5000 to 7000 foot 
range. Btl 


Aviation...based on the 23/06z taf cycle. A front is pushing 
into the Cascades this morning and southeast this afternoon 
bringing rain while behind the front, showers will move into the 
area. Areas of MVFR to occasionally IFR ceilings/visible will persist over 
inland areas with the frontal band as it pushes across the 
Cascades and then southeast this morning in areas of moderate 
rainfall. Behind the front for areas west of the Cascades and 
along the coast, expect showers with a mix of VFR/MVFR ceilings this 
morning. Then in the afternoon, the front will gradually push 
southeastward and linger over portions of northern California and 
extreme southeast Oregon with showers continuing behind it. During 
the afternoon and into the evening, expect conditions to improve 
to VFR for most areas with isolated MVFR in heavier Showers. 
Mountain obscurations will be widespread this morning with partial 
obscurations in the afternoon. Also with the front moving inland 
winds will gradually lower. However expect gusty winds to 
continue, especially from the Cascades east. /Cc 


Marine...updated 1045 PM PDT Wednesday 22 Oct 2014...winds have 
lowered behind a front but seas will remain elevated and hazardous 
to small craft early this morning through tonight due to westerly 
swell. There will be a lull in both winds and seas Friday. Models 
are coming into better agreement with the Friday night/Saturday 
system. All show a deepening surface low moving northward along 
the 130 west benchmark Friday night then northeastward inside 130 west 
Saturday. Very strong south winds will develop ahead of this 
system Friday night with high end gale conditions and possible 
storm force gusts Saturday. Stay tuned for further updates 
regarding this potential big wind-maker. Conditions will improve 
through the remainder of the weekend, and after another brief 
round of calmer winds and seas, another front is expected early 
next week. -Spilde/cirrocumulus
