area forecast discussion

1123 am pdt Tue may 21 2019

Updated aviation discussion
Discussion A wet day is expected across the forecast area, and the
forecast looks on track. A quarter to half inch of rain is
expected through this evening across most of southwestern oregon
and northern california. The air mass is cold, in the coldest 10
percent for this date, with 5000-foot temperatures at 2.5c. Snow
is being observed in the mountains this morning (per latest cam at
dead indian memorial road, highway 140 at lake of the woods, and
highway 299 at cedar pass), with most roadways wet now as the may
sun angle begins to melt any snow. Still, anybody traveling into
the mountains today could see reduced visibility in snow and
perhaps a brief period of slippery roadways.

Isolated thunderstorms are expected for most of the forecast area
today. It feels like we're putting thunderstorms in the forecast
often lately, but late may plus a cold low are good ingredients
by themselves for at least a few storms. Of course small hail and
brief heavy showers are possible with any storms this time of year
too.

Please see the previous forecast discussion below for more details
on this continued active, cool pattern.

Aviation For the 21 18z tafs... Low pressure is moving through the
forecast area today, spreading showers across most areas. Mountain
obscuration is expected most areas through tonight. A mix of
conditions exists currently, but ceilings are generally MVFR and
will continue like this through the day. Tonight, conditions should
degrade some to low MVFR or ifr in valleys west of the cascades.

Most locations should improve toVFR by Wednesday afternoon, and
gusty north winds are expected. Keene

Marine Updated 900 am pdt Tuesday 21 may 2019... Low pressure will
remain over the waters with moderate west winds through this
evening. At the same time a heavier west swell between 14 and 16
feet at 14 seconds will continue into early this evening, then
gradually subsiding tonight.

Offshore high pressure will rebuild Wednesday and persist through
the remainder of the week. As a result, moderate to strong north
winds will develop over the waters. Steep wind-driven and fresh
swell dominated seas will also occur Wednesday through at least
Thursday night, especially south of bandon and beyond 5 nm off the
coast south of port orford where hazardous seas warning conditions
are expected. Adjustments were made to the hazard headline to
reflect this. Please see mwwmfr for more details. -petrucelli

Prev discussion issued 430 am pdt Tue may 21 2019
short term... A closed low nearing the oregon coast early this
morning will move onshore today bringing widespread showers and
isolated to scattered thunderstorms to SW oregon and northern
california. It has been snowing overnight at elevations mostly
above 5000 feet, including at diamond lake. While web cams have
been showing mostly wet pavement thus far, there could be a few
inches in some mountain areas above 5000 feet through sunrise. A
winter weather advisory remains in effect through 7 am this
morning, so travelers should be aware of potential wintry
conditions.

While today's precipitable water values are not anomalous with
respect to climatology (around 0.50-0.75" west of the cascades and
0.33-0.50" east of the cascades), model soundings are showing a
saturated environment all the way up to around 400mb (20-25kft).

Since the closed low and the core of the coldest air aloft
(approximately -26c) will be moving in overhead at peak heating,
there will be enough instability (around 500 j kg) to support
healthy showers and also some thunderstorms. Any of the stronger
cells could produce brief wind gusts, downpours and small hail.

The preponderance of the guidance is showing near or more than
0.50 of an inch of rain here in medford for the 12 hours ending at
5 pm this evening. This is fairly rare for late may, so keep the
umbrella handy. Incidentally, the daily precipitation record for
may 21 for medford is 0.80 of an inch set in 1996.

The closed low will move southeastward into the great basin
tonight, then remain to our east with broad north-northeast flow
aloft Wednesday and Thursday. With the loss of instability,
coverage of showers will diminish late this evening and overnight,
but they won't go away completely. On Wednesday, while isolated to
scattered showers are still possible, especially near the
cascades and over the east side, much of the time will be dry.

It'll remain cool with high temperatures about 5 degrees below
normal. On Thursday, temperatures get back to around normal for
most areas (low to mid 70s west side, mid 60s east side). Still
expect some instability with isolated to scattered showers along
and east of the cascades, but it should be dry for the most part
west of the cascades. -spilde
in the extended, Monday afternoon's discussion remains valid...

long term... Friday, may 24 through Monday, apr 27, 2019... The
main theme of the extended forecast period remains unchanged, and
that is that unsettled weather will continue. There has been a
change in timing, however, and all guidance has delayed the
arrival of a close upper low over our area until Saturday. This
means Friday is liable to be drier than it has looked, but we've
still got a chance for showers from the cascades east along with a
slight chance for thunderstorms from our california zones up
through the far east side in oregon. Saturday could be quite
active as the upper low moves right across our area. We've still
got chance pops due to the showery nature of the precipitation,
but the threat of thunderstorms now extends back onto portions of
the west side. Instability shown in the deterministic guidance
isn't impressive, but it's really hard to imagine a closed low in
late may not producing some lightning.

The low then drops down into california and we continue to have lots
of wrap-around showers and thunderstorms, especially east side and
norcal up to the cascades. The GFS (and gefs) now show the low
moving farther east over the weekend and cuts off our precipitation.

This is a fairly new feature of the GFS which is not supported by
other guidance, so no changes were made based on the gfs. However,
this does lower confidence in the eventual track of the low over the
weekend. -wright
