NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
250 PM PDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Discussion...as expected, the upper trough is splitting as it moves 
inland as evidenced on the water vapor image. The visible image 
shows plenty of cumulus clouds, but they are noticeably absent in 
the rogue, Illinois, Scott and Shasta valleys. So far little or no 
shower activity has been observed in the last several hours and my 
gut feeling is we probably wont see much through this evening. 
However there is still a few more hours of heating and with the cool 
pool aloft moving east of the Cascades, I would expect most of the 
activity to be confined there. We'll keep in a slight chance of 
thunderstorms for parts of lake, northern Klamath and southwest 
Modoc County, but they will be isolated, if they happen at all. 


Over the next 24 hours a cutoff low will develop in central cal and 
an upper ridge will build into the area. This will bring a return to 
dry and milder conditions starting Friday, then heating up over the 
weekend as a thermal trough develops along the coast Friday 
afternoon, then moves inland Saturday. The thermal trough will bring 
increasing offshore flow with gusty east to northeast winds over the 
ridges in western Siskiyou County and southwest Oregon. 


The thermal trough is expected to expand north Saturday and this 
will allow marine stratus to push northward into southern Oregon. 
The main question is how far north. Current thinking is that it 
should remain south of Cape Blanco Saturday afternoon, then surge 
northward Saturday night. The thermal trough will move inland over 
the Westside. Skies will be clear and temperatures will heat up into 
the middle 90s in the rogue, Illinois and parts of the Umpqua basin. 


The models are in good agreement showing another large scale upper 
trough deepening near 140w Saturday night and slowly move east 
Sunday. This will act as a kicker pushing the cutoff low in 
California northeast into northern Nevada, but it will have little 
or no impact on our weather. Any threat of thunderstorms will remain 
south and east of the forecast area. 


The above mentioned upper trough will continue to push east Monday 
and send a weak front through the area bringing cooler temperatures 
and increasing onshore flow, but remaining dry. An upper low will 
develop near 140w Tuesday with a southwest flow developing ahead of 
it. Another, but slightly stronger front is expected to reach the 
coast Tuesday afternoon or evening and bring measurable rain to the 
coast and Coast Range. 


The ec and GFS have remained in remarkable good agreement showing a 
much more active pattern starting next Wednesday. The last several 
runs of the ec and GFS have continue to highlight this and it's no 
surprise the rmop is now show showing a higher probability (21 
percent) of a trough moving into the area. This does not seem like a 
lot, but it's high given the forecast period is a 168 hours out 
(based on 0z run from last night). Given the above mentioned 
reasoning, have continued the upward increase in probability of precipitation from next 
Wednesday through Friday. Confidence is fairly high we'll have a 
significant change in the pattern and one that will lead to much 
cooler temperatures and measurable precipitation. In fact could not 
rule out moderate to heavy precipitation along the coast Wednesday 
and Thursday as stronger fronts move through. Additionally, winds 
will increase over the marine waters and coastline. 


The ec and GFS diverge after Thursday with the progression of the 
upper trough. The ec is more progressive and splits the trough with 
ridging nudging in from the west. The GFS keep the trough overhead 
with a continued cool and unsettled conditions. However both models 
show strong ridging building in the eastern U.S. So it's possible 
we'll continue to have troughing in the Pacific northwest. -Petrucelli

Aviation...based on the 18/18z taf cycle... 
scattered showers will occur across much of the area this afternoon 
and evening, primarily across inland areas. An isolated 
thunderstorms are possible, primarily over Modoc and lake counties. 
Some partial mountain obscurations will continue into this evening. 
Most of the showers will be light, though some MVFR conditions are 
expected, and isolated IFR is possible in isolated thunderstorms. 
Tonight patchy fog and low clouds will occur in areas that got 
appreciable rain, primarily on the west side along and near the 
Coast Range and Umpqua basin- though some fog is likely in the upper 
Klamath basin. Expect this to be a mix of MVFR and IFR with local 
LIFR. Smoke production from area wildfires will be greatly 
diminished through the period due to the recent rains and higher 
humidities. Btl 




&& 


Marine...updated 900am PDT Thursday 18 Sep 2014... 
low pressure centered southwest of the coastal waters will move 
southeastward along the California coast today. Showers will 
continue today, especially in the southern waters. A developing 
thermal trough will bring increased north winds with steep wind 
waves Friday afternoon through Friday night. The thermal trough 
will weaken Saturday and seas will transition back to being 
dominated by a moderate swell during the weekend. The weaker 
pressure pattern will persist into early next week. Btl
