NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Medford or 
800 PM PDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Discussion...25/00z NAM in. 


A warm front moved north through the Medford County Warning Area Friday and skies 
mostly cleared after it passed through. However...more clouds are 
moving in ahead of the trailing cold front...which is poised to 
move onshore Saturday. The freezing level rose from 8600 feet on 
the 24/12z kmfr sounding to 12600 feet on the 25/00z sounding. 


A splitting long wave trough remains offshore around 133w. 
Downstream ridging developed ahead of it and that is what drove 
the warm front north. 


The southern branch of the trough will move onshore Saturday 
afternoon and evening. It will push a wet and windy front onshore 
Saturday morning. This front will move through the Medford County Warning Area 
Saturday afternoon and evening and depart to the east Saturday night. 


The main impact will be from strong southerly winds (strongest in 
the late morning and afternoon hours). But, it will also produce 
moderate to heavy rain for much of the area west of the Cascades 
(and light rain elsewhere)...isolated thunderstorms (with the 
highest probability near the coast)...and up to 6 inches of 
mountain snow. The snow level will start off around 7000 feet on 
Saturday...then fall to around 5000 feet with Post-frontal showers 
Saturday night. 


Moderate to heavy rain with isolated thunderstorms will reach the 
coast around midnight then spread inland Saturday with the heaviest 
precipitation occurring west of the Cascade crest. Storm total 
amounts late tonight into Sunday morning are forecast to be up to 
4 inches in the coastal range of Curry County with up to 2 inches 
elsewhere in Curry...Coos...Josephine...and western and southern 
Siskiyou County. Up to an inch elsewhere on the west side and 
generally up to a half inch on the east side. 


Post-frontal showers will persist into Sunday...then an upper 
level ridge will edge into the area...bringing drier and warmer 
conditions with weak offshore low level flow. Monday morning will 
likely be fairly cool though. 


Monday will be a dry day with the possible exception of very light 
showers at the coast north of North Bend. However...high clouds 
will already be moving in ahead of another strong front...which 
will move onshore late Monday night or Tuesday morning. 


Long term discussion from the Friday afternoon afd...Tuesday 
morning though Friday. Models are in very good agreement starting 
Tuesday with another wet system impacting the area Tuesday into 
Wednesday. Although the jet axis will be north of the region low 
level convergence combining with orographic lift will bring heavy 
precipitation to the west side with a wetting rain possible east 
of the Cascades in a near zonal flow pattern. 


The upper level ridge will build and shift east as the upper 
level trough deepens offshore into Friday morning with showers 
weakening over the region through Friday morning. From Friday the 
European model (ecmwf) and the GFS vary in the the depth and location of a cutoff 
low beyond 130w...with the European model (ecmwf) putting the low off of the 
Southern California coast and the GFS locating it off of the 
northern California coast. Confidence is much higher on the 
forecast up to Friday...and lower next weekend. /Sven 


&& 


Aviation...based on the 25/00z taf cycle...with the warm front 
pushing north of the area, VFR conditions prevail at most locations 
this evening...aside from krbg and the Umpqua valley which linger in 
MVFR or IFR ceilings. A cold front will approach from the west beginning 
later this evening into overnight, and gusty south to southwest 
winds are expected to develop in most areas, especially along the 
coast and east of the Cascades. The Rogue Valley and the Shasta 
Valley are also likely to see strong winds through much of 
Saturday...while areas along the coast will potentially see some 
low level wind shear as winds above the surface strengthen 
considerably overnight. 


Rain will begin along the coast around 12 UTC, then spread inland 
through the morning and afternoon. Most areas will see rain by the 
end of the taf period. Expect mostly VFR conditions through the day, 
although MVFR conditions are likely along the coast and within areas 
of heavier precipitation. Mountain obscurations will become 
widespread and extensive. -Bpn 


&& 


Marine...updated 230 PM PDT Friday 24 Oct 2014...strong low pressure 
will move through the coastal waters over the next 48 hours. 
Southerly winds will increase through this evening and tonight as 
gradients tighten ahead of the low and its associated cold front. 
Winds will remain strong through much of Saturday. 


There is some question as to how strong winds will become, and how 
long they will persist. While pressure gradient forecasts between 
Eureka and North Bend would suggest storm force winds under usual 
circumstances, the front will be oriented roughly parallel to the 
coast, and this will keep winds slightly weaker than we would 
typically see with this strong of a system. Winds will shift west 
and begin to ease in the late Saturday afternoon. This is subject to 
change depending on the track of the low, but at least 12-18 hours 
of strong gales to low end storm force winds are nearly certain over 
much of our waters. Very steep and chaotic seas will also accompany 
the high winds, composed of moderate west swell and very strong 
southerly chop. 


Conditions will improve Sunday, but another front may affect the 
waters late Monday into Tuesday. -Bpn/Wright
