UPDATE
Updated AVIATION Section

DISCUSSION
Satellite imagery is showing some clouds across portions of Lake County and at the border of Jackson and Josephine Counties in Oregon as well as across the southern border of Modoc County in California. Otherwise, mostly clear skies are being observed elsewhere. These clear skies will allow temperatures to become cold this morning, and a freeze warning is in effect for portions of the Rogue, Applegate, Sams, and Evans Valleys. This freeze warning also includes portions of Grants Pass. In addition to the freezing temperatures, chilly temperatures that could promote frost formation are expected this morning along the Coos County Coast, and a frost advisory has been issued. Please see the NPWMFR for more details.

We will remain under the influence of high pressure for most of the week. This will bring mostly clear skies in the afternoons with virtually no chance of rain. After a chilly start to the mornings, afternoon high temperatures will be relatively warm.
This pattern will repeat for most of the week with temperatures (both afternoon highs and morning lows) getting warmer each day.

The pattern begins to shift somewhat over the weekend as a weak front tries to push through the area on Saturday into Saturday night. This front will likely only bring light precipitation to the area, and specifically limiting any precipitation to the coast and portions of Douglas County and into the Cascades north of highway 140. The more noticeable change will be that temperatures will be a bit cooler and cloud cover will increase across southern Oregon and northern California.

Additional weak systems will push through the area with minor precipitation chances possible early next week. Then in the far extended forecast, another low looks to approach the Pacific Northwest. Ensembles are split on the track of the low, but it appears as if the ensembles are hinting that we may see some impactful weather. Please stay tuned to the forecast as the details will ultimately change. -Schaaf

Gales and very steep wind driven seas can be expected south of Cape Blanco. North winds will ease somewhat overnight into Thursday, but seas remain hazardous to small craft through Thursday night. The thermal trough weakens by Friday and conditions will improve. Relatively light winds and low seas continue into Saturday, but a weak cold front will move through in the afternoon. Gusty north winds and steep seas are expected to return later in the weekend. -Spilde
