North winds are expected to peak Thursday afternoon and evening. These north winds are likely to continue at advisory levels well west of the coast south of cape blanco through Friday night.

updated aviation section

Short term A weak front is moving into the coast and will
weaken and dissipate early this evening. Some light rain has
fallen at the coast near coos bay and northward. Otherwise dry
conditions have continued across the area today with an upper
ridge in place. Some haze and smoke from fires to the south has
lingered over the area today and is expected to shift southeast
tonight. Smoke is mainly aloft and is patchy.

Models remain in good agreement showing the high pressure ridge
strengthening Thursday into Friday with a surface thermal trough
developing along the coast. This will bring a stable, dry air
mass to the region. Expect gusty north winds over the coastal
waters Thursday afternoon and evening with breezy north to
northeast winds inland along the coast. Offshore northeast to east
winds will bring breezy winds to the coastal mountains Thursday
night into Friday morning.

Friday night into Saturday, the ridge and thermal trough will
build northward. Expect continued east winds over the mountains
with winds increasing in the southern oregon cascades Friday
night into Saturday. Saturday, an upper level shortwave will move
down the east side of the ridge. This disturbance is expected to
remain east of the area and expect little impact. East side
locations may see temperatures lower some late Saturday into
Sunday.

Long term Monday through Wednesday... Models show more
variability in how strong the upper ridge will be early next week
and when it may weaken or break down. The ensemble mean GEFS and
gfs forecasts are stronger with the ridge and slower to break down
the ridge compared to the ecwmf. The GEFS and GFS would favor
continued dry conditions through Tuesday, followed by an upper
trough moving into the region around Wednesday of next week.

However the GFS has trended weaker and drier with this system next
week. In contrast, the ECMWF is quicker to break down the ridge
and continues to show a front and upper trough bringing
precipitation into the area Tuesday night into Wednesday. Overall,
expect a chance for precipitation by Wednesday but confidence is
low on the details of the strength and timing of this system. So
will monitor this portion of the forecast with future model runs.

Aviation For the 15 00z tafs... A dissipating front will bring
some MVFR ceilings to the coast and the umpqua valley this evening.

Vfr will prevail elsewhere. Smoke from wildfires in california will
maintain a haze across the area, but it should not be thick enough
to restrict visibility.

Overnight into Thursday morning, low-level moisture along the coast
and into the umpqua valley will lead to areas of ifr low clouds and
fog, butVFR will return in the afternoon.VFR will persist
elsewhere. -spilde

Marine Updated 200 pm pst Wednesday 14 november 2018... A
weak front has moved through the waters this afternoon. We'll see
west-northwest swell build Thursday behind this front. In addition,
we will also see northerly winds waves increase in strength Thursday
evening. The combination of these two wave groups will generate
chaotic seas hazardous to small craft. The main area of concern
will be 10 to 30 nm away from shore south of gold beach. This area
will have the strongest winds. However, since the swell is the
dominant wave in this scenario, we decided to stay away from a
hazardous seas warning for the area mentioned above.

A low to moderate west swell will remain the forecast through next
week, but winds are expected to weaken as we move through the
forecast period.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
