Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters..Winds and steep seas are gradually subsiding, and seas will lower below 10 feet by Friday morning. High pressure will nudge into the waters tonight, then weaken Friday. A weak front will move into the area Friday night into Saturday, then stall over the area through Sunday at least. The front will gain strength late in the weekend and early next week and bring the potential for increasing winds and waves.

Discussion As we head into the weekend the region switches once
again into an active and very wet pattern as an atmospheric river
event moves in Sunday.

With thicker cirrus moving over the region the higher low deck has
mostly cleared out temperatures are nearing dew points in the west
side valleys and have more confidence with the possibility of
patchy freezing fog in spite of the colder temperatures this
morning. Heights fall with the offshore upper level high and a
105kt jet pushes down on the back side pushes the next front into
our area this afternoon. As the axis of the slowly strengthening
jet moves slowly south and westerly 700 mb flow increases, precip
rates increase as well as we head into Sunday morning. With this
cool westerly flow snow levels will be low Sunday morning.

However, as we proceed farther into the day Sunday, the
atmospheric river moisture flow moves in with 700 flow becoming
more southwesterly brining rising snow levels as we head into the
afternoon. Although the axis of a 110kt jet is well to the north
of the area, the area will be in a favorable right entrance region
of the jet, helping to increase precipitation rates.

Snow levels rise above 3000 feet by Sunday afternoon as the
atmospheric river event is in full swing with the region being in
the fork of a splint jet flow Sunday morning and divergent flow
aloft in the afternoon Sunday. However, with higher rates in the
mount shasta area, snow levels will be low Sunday morning, but
before heavier amounts move in. As we head into Sunday afternoon
the boundary layer to 700 mb winds increase and the precipitation
becomes more orographically influenced and inland valleys will be
more rain shadowed compared to the coastal ranges and inland
mountains. Southerly winds will also increase at the coast and in
the shasta valley.

The core of a 90kt jet points directly at the region Sunday
evening into Monday morning with southwest winds increasing
further, combining with good jet dynamics, upper level divergence,
and the atmospheric river flow to further increase precipitation
rates, especially on the coast and south coastal ranges. Sven

Aviation For the 22 12z tafs... Areas of ifr lifr CIGS vis with
fog freezing fog are expected to develop tonight and early Friday
morning in most west side valleys. Confidence is moderate for the
coastal areas tonight, but we thinkVFR conditions will prevail due
to a drier air mass in place. East of the cascades, some MVFR
cigs low clouds are possible tonight, especially on northeast-facing
terrain due to continued northeast winds.

Marine Updated 200 am pst Friday 22 february 2019... Quiet
weather will continue today. The next potential hazard to mariners
will be during the early morning hours of Sunday when stronger winds
are expected out of the south. These winds will likely pose a
hazard to smaller crafts on Sunday with possibility for gale force
winds close to the coastline. With the increase in stronger south
winds on Sunday, wind waves and fresh swell out of the south will
probably create problems for smaller crafts Sunday into Monday.
