Discussion
In the wake of 96 cg lightning strikes in lake county yesterday
afternoon and evening, this afternoon has been pretty quiet, thus
far. Cumulus clouds are, once again gathering, today along and
near the scott, siskiyou, and cascade mountains and portions of
the east side. We've had some radar returns in northern klamath
county near gilchrist, but no lightning as of 245 pm pdt.

For the remainder of this afternoon into this evening the cumulus
fields could result in isolated showers and thunderstorms in the
scott valley mountains area, far SE lake and modoc counties, and
across the high cascades from crater lake np northward and
eastward across northern klamath and lake counties. The best
possibility of thunder is across northern klamath and lake
counties. All in all, however, advection is slim to none in terms
of dynamics for thunderstorm formation, so surface heating will be
the driver. Therefore, suspect the strike counts for today will
probably be low, under 50 cg strikes.

There is an upper level impulse that is expected to clip far
southeastern lake county overnight, so we're holding onto a slight
possibility of thunderstorms out there.

For Tuesday, southerly winds will ramp up and rhs will be low
enough east of the cascades to warrant a red flag warning over
portions of the forecast area. The slight chance of showers and
thunderstorms has shrunk to only a 3 hour period tomorrow
afternoon over the high cascades north of crater and diamond
lakes, far northern lake and klamath counties, and far SE lake
county.

Temperatures on the west side Tuesday should be 5 degrees cooler
than they are today, and then a warm-up that is likely to peak a
degree or 2 higher than yesterday's highs is expected to peak on
Thursday. While models differ, temperatures are then expected to
trend slightly downward through next Monday.

While we'll need to be wary of impulses in the SW flow through the
forecast period for potential convection, model guidance
continues to suggest a continuation of seasonably hot and dry
weather. Btl

Aviation For the 22 18z tafs... Along the coast and over the
coastal waters... Ifr lifr lingering south and west of brookings will
continue to dissipate through early this afternoon. Areas of ifr
lifr conditions will redevelop Monday evening and persist into
Tuesday morning. MVFR ceilings are likely to push a bit farther
inland into the umpqua basin Tuesday morning, to include krbg. Over
the remainder of the area...VFR conditions will persist into Tuesday
morning, but there will be isolated afternoon and evening
thunderstorms mainly from the cascades north of highway 140 across
northern klamath lake counties, winter rim to the warner mountains
eastward, and over western siskiyou county. These are not expected
to affect TAF sites. Breezy northwest through north winds are
expected to affect the west side later this afternoon into the
evening, with breezy southwest through northwest winds east of the
cascades this afternoon and evening. Btl

Marine Updated 230 pm pdt Monday 22 july 2019...

winds and seas will remain below advisory levels into Tuesday
morning. The thermal trough will restrengthen beginning Tuesday
afternoon and moreso on Wednesday. This will bring stronger north
winds and choppy wind driven seas back to the area, especially
south of CAPE blanco. Winds may reach gale force Wednesday
afternoon through Thursday evening south of CAPE sebastian.

Fire weather Updated 200 pm pdt Monday 22 july 2019... Cumulus
clouds are slowly starting to develop along the cascades and in the
klamath basin this afternoon. Thunderstorms should follow later
this afternoon and evening. These thunderstorms will be similar to
the thunderstorms yesterday. We're not expecting really wet storms,
but they won't be completely dry on the other hand.

The other important talking point will be the wind and rh forecast
on Tuesday afternoon. Rh's will trend downwards compared to today.

Models are suggesting a dry pocket of air ahead of this approaching
low. The confidence in the rh forecast is a little shaky because
this pocket of dry air appears to be arriving slightly before noon,
so models might not have the best handle on the minimum rh forecast.

None the less, we feel very confident in the critical winds and
gusts ahead of this low . Because of the high confidence in the
wind forecast and low humidities, we're going with a red flag
warning Tuesday afternoon and evening for fire weather zones 624 and
285.

On Wednesday after the trough moves through, humidities will still
be critical east of the cascades. This isn't all that unusual for
this time of year. In addition, winds will be on the down trend
Wednesday, so we're not concerned about critical fire weather
conditions beyond Tuesday evening. -smith
