NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
242 PM PDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Discussion...substantial smoke and subsequent fumigation is 
occurring from the wildfires burning in Siskiyou County. A 
visibility of 1 mile or less typically relates to very unhealthy 
air quality. The Montana. Shasta city observation had dropped to 3/4 
mile at 1 PM. The Siskiyou Airport in Montague is down to 4 miles 
visibility which is unhealthy for sensitive groups. The areas most 
impacted are the western Siskiyou Mountains...Scott and Shasta 
valleys...and the I-5 corridor down to Dunsmuir. 


The smoke is expected to worsen near the fires as the atmosphere 
stabilizes overnight. The smoke is expected to blow toward the 
southeast on Sunday and then more to the south on Monday. Winds 
may begin to back on Tuesday ahead of an approaching trough 
resulting in the smoke blowing toward the east and northeast. 


One of our meteorologists based in Etna took a temperature reading of 
only 71 degrees at 2 PM while it was 81 in Medford. The smoke will 
keep high temperatures down at least 5 degrees compared to smoke- 
free areas so have lowered high temperatures around the Scott 
Valley for the next couple of days. 


The big weather features in the forecast have not changed. The 
marine layer and associated clouds and cooling will expand into 
Sunday morning but then retreat on Monday as a more offshore flow 
pattern develops. Temperatures will warm inland Monday and 
Tuesday as upper ridging and a more offshore low level flow 
persists. 


An dry upper trough will then linger across the region Wednesday 
into next weekend. A dry front will advance to around the 
California-Oregon border by early Wednesday. Cooler surface high 
pressure will build across northern areas of the Pacific northwest 
with a stronger offshore flow possible Thursday. Despite the upper 
trough it does not look like thunderstorms will develop as the 
airmass is dry...slightly stable...and solar heating is 
diminishing in September.

Aviation...based on the 30/18z taf cycle...there is a mix of 
MVFR and VFR ceilings at the coast. Onshore flow continues tonight 
with lowering ceilings at the coast. High pressure aloft begins to 
build but the marine layer should still become deep enough for 
IFR/MVFR conditions to spread into the Umpqua basin overnight. 
Farther inland...middle and high clouds will persist over the region 
with VFR conditions. The exception will be near the large fires in 
Siskiyou County California where visibilities have been IFR in 
places. Montana Shasta city...which is a good distance from these 
fires...was experiencing IFR visibilities. 




&& 


Marine...updated 230 PM PDT Sat 30 Aug 2014...winds will remain 
relatively light through the weekend. The wave watch and Swan output 
appear to be too high with the swell height compared to what's being 
observed and have adjusted those down for tonight and Sunday. The 
models remain in fairly good agreement showing a thermal trough 
developing Monday afternoon and likely persisting into at least the 
middle of next week. This will bring small craft for winds for the 
southern waters, possibly gales south of Gold Beach with steep wind 
driven seas. 


&& 


Fire weather...after a cooler day with somewhat higher humidities, 
a brief period of warmer and drier conditions will return 
late this weekend into early next week. There is an ongoing concern 
that the subsidence inversion will descend to the level of some of 
the ridgelines within northern California and along the Cascades 
tonight and again Sunday night. Should this occur, it will result in 
slightly warmer, very dry air settling in overnight, accompanied by 
a shift in the wind. This could lead to an increase in nocturnal 
fire activity. There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the exact 
elevation this could occur, but any sites above 4000 feet in northern 
California, or roughly 5000 feet in the Oregon Cascades could be 
affected. This same scenario could also return later in the week. 
Therefore, have lowered the forecast humidities nearly across the 
board for the next week. 


Another dry cold front is expected midweek, once again providing 
gusty winds and some temperature and humidity relief. However, the 
thermal trough is also likely to return this week, and if model 
solutions are any indication, it would result in rather significant 
offshore flow. We can therefore expect overnight recoveries to 
suffer, especially along ridgelines and higher terrain. 


There is no indication of anything more than a very slight chance of 
precipitation north of the Umpqua Divide for at least the next week.
