Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters..Offshore high pressure will persist through the end of the week. This will result in gusty north winds and very steep wind driven seas through the end of the week. Conditions will improve this weekend as weak low pressure moves over the waters.

area forecast discussion
national weather service medford or
1102 am pdt Wed may 22 2019

Updated aviation discussion
Discussion Some showers are observed on radar this morning,
moving from northeast to southeast from the east side into the
cascades... And eventually into valleys west of the cascades. Even
with some morning showers, today's weather overall will be drier and
warmer than yesterday, and there should be increased sunshine this
afternoon after morning clouds clear some. There are some
indications that thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, but deep
layer northerly flow (not a favored pattern for lightning) along
with meager SPC calibrated thunderstorm probabilities have nudged us
to keep storms out of the forecast this afternoon.

Today we'll be putting some extra focus on the memorial day weekend
forecast as an upper low is forecast to move south over the forecast
area. How this impacts our forecast is still somewhat uncertain, so
we'll try to hone in on the details.

Aviation For the 22 18z tafs... From the cascades west... CIGS have
been a mix of MVFR andVFR this morning and this is expected to
continue into the morning and afternoon. Isolated showers and
mountain obscuration will occur for the majority of the day. Tonight
ceilings will lower to MVFR or ifr in most valleys west of the
cascades.

East of the cascades... Areas of MVFR CIGS with higher terrain
obscured will clear toVFR by this afternoon with gusty north winds
and increased turbulence. These conditions will persist into this
evening. There will also be isolated showers east of the cascades
throughout the day. Tonight the lowest conditions will occur on
north facing slopes due to northerly wind pushing lower clouds into
these areas. Keene

Marine Updated 200 am pdt Wednesday 22 may 2019... Offshore high
pressure and a thermal trough near the coast will strengthen later
today. Then, north winds will increase, becoming gusty with steep to
very steep wind-driven and fresh swell dominated seas. Winds will
approach gale force south of gold beach this afternoon and evening
and again Thursday afternoon and evening. Seas will be hazardous
over a larger area from around CAPE blanco south and beyond 5 nm of
the coast. The thermal trough will move inland Friday into Saturday,
and winds and seas will diminish.

Prev discussion issued 311 am pdt Wed may 22 2019
short term... The upper trough that brought all the showers to the
area yesterday is now moving into the great basin. Meanwhile, an
upper ridge axis is centered along 140w. This is bringing broad
north-northeast flow aloft across SW oregon and northern
california. Energy on the back side of the trough will continue to
rotate south-southwestward across the area today triggering more
showers, but they won't be as numerous as they were 24 hours
ago... Mainly isolated to scattered coverage. Best coverage will be
over the cascades and also over the east side (east of klamath
falls). Instability parameters are fairly weak today, and though
we'll probably see some heftier showers out there again, lightning
risk is low. If a strike were to occur, it'd be most likely in
portions of eastern siskiyou modoc counties this afternoon early
this evening. We'll be a bit milder than yesterday, with afternoon
temperatures rebounding into the mid to upper 60s west side and
in the upper 50s to low 60s east side.

Coverage of showers diminishes again overnight into Thursday
morning. And, we'll likely see less coverage Thursday than we'll
have today since upper ridging offshore will edge eastward. Even
so, still expect a couple of showers over near the cascades and
also from winter rim southeastward to the warners. There is a
slight chance of a thunderstorm roughly from about howard prairie
northward. Temperatures will climb back to just about where they
should be for this time of year, which means low to mid 70s for
west side valleys and mid 60s east of the cascades.

On Friday, short wave energy will drop southward along the bc
coast and develop into a closed low. This low will then settle to
near the or wa border by Friday evening. It should be another
near-normal day temperature-wise in advance of this system with
highs fairly similar to Thursday. Showers and isolated
thunderstorms are possible from SE siskiyou county northeastward
across the east side (again mainly east of klamath falls). There
can also be isolated showers near and north of the umpqua divide.

The rest of the area should be dry. The closed low will move
quickly southward through the area overnight Friday into
Saturday. See long term discussion below for more details
regarding the extended forecast. -spilde
long term... Saturday through Tuesday... The general
consensus is for upper troughing to remain over the area through
the holiday weekend. This means we could be dealing with a
chance of showers and afternoon and early evening thunderstorms
Saturday through memorial day for most inland locations. In this
type of pattern we could actually end up with a fair amount of dry
time in the morning hours, especially west of the cascades. Then
from late morning through the early evening hours, the chance for
scattered showers will increase in coverage and intensity with a
slight chance of thunderstorms. The best chance for showers and
storms both Saturday and Sunday will be along and east of the
cascades. However westside locations will also have a risk for
showers due to increasing instability from daytime heating or
steering winds bringing in showers from the southeast Saturday,
then east on Sunday.

The upper low is expected to set up southeast of our area Monday.

The operational models are in relatively good agreement with the
position of the low, but the individual ensemble members show a wide
range of solutions. Therefore the details on the exact location of
showers and where the best chance of showers could change. The upper
should finally move far enough away where we could end up with drier
and milder conditions next Tuesday. -petrucelli
