Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters - Gusty north winds will continue as low pressure moves southward offshore. This will bring steep, hazardous seas to the outer waters beyond 10 nm from shore through Sunday evening. North winds will persist over the waters through most of next week, strongest during the afternoons and evenings and especially south of cape blanco. Conditions there may be hazardous to small craft at times due to the winds and steep seas.

SHORT TERM
An upper low will remain positioned off the northern California coast through Saturday then gradually shift inland over California Saturday night and Sunday. This low will bring cooler and showery weather. Unstable conditions will also result in chances for afternoon and evening thunderstorms through Saturday. This is followed by rain and snow Saturday night and Sunday. Thunderstorms chances are highest today and Saturday for areas east of the Cascades with a chance for strong gusty winds, hail, and brief heavy downpours with cells. Of note, there is a marginal risk (2-5%) for severe thunderstorms today over eastern Lake County and on Saturday over northern/eastern Klamath and norther/western Lake counties.

Current radar shows a band of light rain showers inland along and near the Cascades and into central Siskiyou County. East of the Cascades, there are showers with isolated thunderstorms. High resolution models show showers increasing across much of the area this afternoon, with isolated to scattered thunderstorms expected to develop east of the Cascades. A few isolated thunderstorms are possible from Cascades west as well. Models continue to support enough CAPE and shear to support a marginal (2-5%) chance for severe storms in far eastern Lake County with a potential for strong winds and hail. This is mainly for areas east of Lakeview and east of Silver Lake. However, the NAMNest model also indicates a potential for strong storms slightly further west today, into western Lake and far eastern Klamth Counties. So, we will be monitoring this closely. The chance for strong thunderstorms for eastern Lake county is mainly from 1pm through 7pm today.

Tonight, the focus for precipitation shifts to the coast and northern California areas. However, precipitation will increase in Saturday morning, mainly from the Cascades east and Siskiyous south, then spread across most the area Saturday afternoon and evening.Models support a risk for thunderstorms on Saturday across most inland areas, 10-20% chances west of the Cascades and 20-40% chances east of the Cascades. Additionally, across northern/eastern Klamath and northern/western Lake counties Saturday afternoon/evening, models show this area under the exit region of an upper level jet and indicate sufficient CAPE and shear to support a marginal risk (2-5%) for severe thunderstorms with strong wind and damaging hail possible.

Widespread precipitation continues Saturday evening into Sunday.
Snow levels will also lower from 5500-7500 feet Saturday down to around 4000-5500 feet Saturday night and Sunday morning with light to moderate snow expected in the mountains and down to some valleys across eastern Siskiyou and Modoc counties.

LONG TERM
Sunday through Friday, April 14-19, 2024...An upper level low spinning offshore near the San Francisco Bay area will move onshore Sunday morning, then shift into the Great Basin Sunday afternoon/evening. This will maintain a cool, active weather pattern across southern Oregon and northern California. Models continue to show an axis of steady precipitation forming on the northern periphery of the low in NorCal by Sunday morning with a colder air mass moving in there. Snow levels beneath this precip axis will drop to around 4000-4500 feet. As such, we expect precipitation to change to snow in some areas, with at least minor snow impacts, especially for portions of southern Siskiyou and Modoc counties. Given recent mild conditions, this should preclude much more than minor winter impacts, but we've issued a Winter Weather Advisory for down there for elevations above 4000 feet in Zones 80/82 and above 4500 feet in Zones 83/85). Snow amounts by Sunday morning (11 am) look to be in the 2-6 inch range, with some of the higher passes, like Cedar Pass on Highway 299 east of Alturas possibly receiving a little more than 6 inches. Other passes that are expected to be impacted by wet snow Sunday morning -- Highway 97 near Grass Lake, Highway 89 near Snowman Summit/Pondosa and Highway 139 south of Tionesta to Adin.
The higher pass on Sawyers Bar road west of Etna and Highway 3 south of Callahan could also see some impacts, but I-5 should be OK.
Farther north (and farther away from the upper level cold pool), snow levels are actually expected to remain above 5000 feet, so snow amounts look fairly minimal and confined to the higher mountains.

Sunday afternoon, shower chances remain highest from the Cascades eastward with PoPs generally in the 40-70% range, except up above 80% in Modoc and eastern Lake counties due to their closer proximity to the low. Snow levels in NorCal should rise some again Sunday afternoon to above 5000 feet. In addition, there is still a slight chance (20%) of thunderstorms over the far East Side. PoPs diminish (to 10-30%) Sunday afternoon west of the Cascades as heights begin to rise; some sunny breaks are probable as well. Isolated showers probably linger into Sunday evening over the far East Side. High temperatures Sunday will be at least a few degrees below normal in most cases, but as much as 10-15F below normal in NorCal.

We expect things to calm down Sunday night through Monday night as the low finally exits to the east and an upper ridge noses in. A few sprinkles/flurries are possible (20% chance) in far northern sections of Douglas County, but most likely it will be dry. The rest of the region will be dry with moderating temperatures, but still remaining at least a few degrees below normal Monday afternoon.
While it looks to remain above freezing west of the Cascades, much will depend on cloud cover Monday night; low temperatures could be in the mid 30s in the valleys west of the Cascades.

Tuesday onward appears to be a largely dry period, but with upper level pattern variations that make the temperature forecast a little less certain. Initially, an upper trough swinging through to the north on Tuesday may make for some breezy conditions during the afternoon, but precipitation chances remain low and mostly to our north. It could get chilly Tuesday night with patchy/areas of frost by Wednesday morning in some valleys west of the Cascades. The overall trend after that is toward milder temperatures, with the latest model clustering showing some semblance of upper ridging, a thermal trough and a period of offshore flow. NBM indicates high temperatures getting back to above normal levels as early as Wednesday, but then especially Thursday/Friday with highs in the mid to upper 70s west of the Cascades. -Spilde



AVIATION
12/18Z TAFs...Southerly flow aloft around a low pressure center is bringing widespread cloud cover, although levels are generally at VFR with occasional localized MVFR ceilings. Showery activity is developing over elevated terrain and moving to the north, with radar indicating showers over the Mount Shasta area, the Cascades, and northern Klamath County. Precipitation chances remain moderate (50-75%) east of the Cascades through the afternoon and similar chances developing east of the Cascades this evening.

Elevated chances (15-30%) for thunderstorms remain in the forecast for areas east of Cascades remain in the forecast, especially over the Lake, Modoc, and eastern Klamath counties. Thee chances will decrease quickly after sunset. Remote sensing has picked up some isolated lightning strikes southeast of Redding, so the potential does exist. Extra caution around developing activity is encouraged, as strong winds or lower visibility as well as lightning may be possible. -TAD

MARINE
Updated 830 AM Friday, April 12, 2024...Low pressure will move southward offshore today. North winds will gradually increase and become stronger, especially in the outer waters and in the offshore waters beyond 60 nm from shore. This combined with increasing northwest swell will bring hazardous conditions over the outer waters, and especially beyond 10-30 NM from shore tonight into Saturday.

North winds will persist over the waters Sunday through most of next week, strongest during the afternoons and evenings and especially south of Cape Blanco. Conditions there may be hazardous to small craft at times due to the winds and steep seas. -Spilde
