PZZ300 842 Am Pdt Thu Apr 27 2017
Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters.. Weak high pressure over the waters will persist into early Friday with diminishing seas. Stronger high pressure offshore and a thermal trough along the coast will develop on Friday. This will result in gusty northerly winds...strongest south of cape blanco. The pattern will weaken slightly on Saturday but strengthen again early next week.

843 am pdt Thu apr 27 2017

Update There are a few showers along the coast and in the
umpqua basin up to the cascades, but the rest of the forecast area
appears mostly dry this morning. A weak upper level wave in the
swift northwest flow aloft will pass overhead this afternoon, briefly
enhancing shower activity along and west of the cascade crest.

Some showers may make it elsewhere, but will be isolated or
upslope based. The forecast appears to be on track this morning,
so no updates are necessary. For more information, see the
previous discussion below. -bpn

Aviation 27/12z TAF cycle... Weak disturbances will produce a few
showers through this evening north of the umpqua divide... Mainly at
the douglas and coos county coast and along the northwest facing
slopes. This will also result in areas of MVFR mainly due to low
ceilings. Conditions will improve late tonight withVFR into Friday.

Conditions will remainVFR south of the umpqua divide with mainly
scattered cloud cover through this evening. -dw

Marine Updated 800 am pdt Thursday, 27 april 2017... Weak high
pressure will persist over the waters into early Friday with
slowly diminishing moderate seas. The main decision was to issue a
small craft advisory for much of the waters south of CAPE blanco
from late Friday morning through Friday night. This will be due to
gusty north winds as high pressure strengthens offshore while a
thermal trough develops along the coast. Winds will be strongest
from 8 to 30 nm from shore in the waters south of gold beach. It
is not likely but there is a possibility that advisory strength
winds may extend farther north to around CAPE arago. The pattern
will weaken slightly on Saturday but strengthen again early next
week with advisory strength northerly winds likely to develop. -dw

Prev discussion /issued 256 am pdt Thu apr 27 2017/
discussion... Although the surface high pressure is building into
sw oregon, there is still plenty of low level moisture and enough
instability to generate afternoon showers. Snow levels will be
around 5000 feet today with another half an inch of new snow
possible at crater lake. Some clearing is expected tonight south
of the umpqua divide and valleys in josephine and jackson county
could see temperatures drop into the frost range.

The thermal trough will also build into the coastal area up to
around gold beach. This will enhance offshore flow and breezy
north to northeast winds at the upper slopes and ridges. This is a
short lived offshore flow and its main effect will be seen with
warm high temperatures at brookings and over the kalmiopsis area
on Friday.

Temperatures will start to warm this weekend into the seasonal
norms. A weak front is still on track to move across northern
oregon Saturday night and Sunday. The latest model is starting to
show the trough to be deeper than in previous runs and we could
see isolated showers Saturday night through Sunday morning as far
south as the rogue valley; although, precipitation amounts will be
very light for the medford area with a few hundredths of an inch
expected in the roseburg area. Aside for the east slopes of the
cascades in the klamath county, we are not expecting any
precipitation to spread east of the cascades or south into
northern california. This front will keep daytime temperatures
close to season norms Sunday through Tuesday.

The latest GFS and ECMWF continue to show upper level ridge
expanding north into the pac nw. Confidence is high that we could
see highs on Wednesday and Thursday rising to around 80 with lower
80s likely in the lower klamath river valley. Beyond Thursday the
models diverge as to be expected with the GFS maintaining the
very strong ridge whereas the ec starts to break this ridge down.

As we may be too early in the season for a strong ridge, we may
see another trough during the first weekend of may but confidence
is not very high at this point. /fb
