Discussion Yet another day of challenging high temperatures
with a combination of a cooler air mass moving in this afternoon
and already fairly warm temperatures over the region. All of the
ridge sites are warm and even ashland is already at 63 degrees at
4 am. Winds at a couple of thousand feet are near 30 kt and this
should mix a warmer air mass aloft, with 925 mb temps of 17c, down
before the cooler air mass moves in later today. Winds will be at
advisory strength, mostly in the higher elevations of the east
side with 700 mb winds around 50-55 kt. This front will continue
to bring significant, but not extreme rainfall to the region. With
the upper ridge pattern already transitioned to a zonal flow
pattern this front will bring precipitation across the east side
with the front dissipating over the east side into Friday morning.

Friday will see a break in the action as an upper trough deepens
offshore ahead of the next system moving in Saturday, but with a
cooler air mass over the region with 700 mb winds from the west
leading up to the morning temperatures will be notably cooler than
today's.

This first of a one-two punch of systems this weekend moves in
Saturday on the left exit region of a 110 kt jet, but this mini
jet will move out of the region by late afternoon as the warm
front shifts to the north of the area. The timing of this system
has been delayed with the ec and the nam, with the GFS being the
most aggressive and have shifted the timing back to match cl;over
to the ec. As the front, now showing to move in Sunday, approaches
the east side and higher elevations 700 mb winds are looking to be
very strong with most models showing in excess of 70 kt Sunday
morning.

Sunday looks to be we throughout the day across the region, but
snow levels will remain high through the evening. However, by
Monday morning snow level still look to drop to pass levels in the
cascades and siskiyou summit and possibly black butte summit. This
will happen at the tail end of the front and snow amounts should
not be high as the bulk of the front and the heaviest
precipitation will have already moved through.

Aviation 23 12z TAF cycle... Areas of MVFR CIGS and local ifr cigs
near the coast will move inland this afternoon, mostly on the west
side north of the umpqua divide and over most of the west side and
into the klamath basin overnight. Low level wind shear will persist
through the early morning at all 4 terminals. -sven

Marine Updated 300 am pst Thursday 23 nov 2017... Steep to very
steep seas will persist this morning, remain steep this afternoon
and evening, then ease below advisory levels overnight. South to
southwest winds will also ease during this time frame. Calmer
conditions are expected Friday through Friday night. Then, another
frontal system will bring strengthening south winds Saturday, with
gales possible and very steep seas Saturday night. Seas will remain
high and steep Sunday into early next week. -spilde

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.
