Discussion
A mostly clear sky and fairly dry air mass over most inland
locations are resulting in strong radiational cooling in valley
locations. This has prompted the issuance of a frost advisory for
portions of the illinois, applegate, and rogue valleys early this
morning.

Meanwhile, a southerly stratus surge has been making it's way
north along the coast overnight and appears to be nearing bandon
and coos bay based on what can be seen on the nighttime
microphysics rgb from goes17. Fog and low clouds have also been
forming during the last hour in the illinois valley, coquille
valley, and in the umpqua basin.

We're expecting a mostly cloudy day along and near the coast today
and clouds gradually increasing from the west through the day
today elsewhere. Clouds should be thin enough to allow for
another substantial warm-up across inland areas with daily
maximums likely to end up at to a few degrees above calendar
normals.

Cloud cover is likely to prevent west side frost tonight, but
we'll have to keep an eye on that again, as guidance continues to
over predict both cloud cover and resultant temperatures, and
dewpoints look as if they will be similar Wednesday morning to
what they are this morning.

The forecast was updated overnight for today through the weekend,
primarily to increase precipitation probabilities during high
confidence precipitation periods, to adjust amounts, and to adjust
temperatures and snow levels to be more consistent with each
other. Southerly winds will become breezy ahead of the front
Wednesday into Wednesday evening, but should remain below advisory
thresholds. Rain is expected to arrive along and near the coast
tonight into Wednesday morning, becoming moderate to heavy across
curry county Wednesday afternoon. For areas inland from the coast
rain is expected to overspread the area Wednesday afternoon into
Wednesday night. Snow is likely to begin dusting the peaks above
6500 feet Thursday morning.

Showers are expected Thursday and Friday, mainly across nw
portions of the forecast area with snow levels 4500-5500 feet in
the morning rising to 5500-6500 feet in the afternoon and early
evening hours.

Friday night into Saturday a chilly soaker will affect most of the
area with a quarter to a half inch or more of rain, with snowfall
in the mountains above 5kft. 4-8 inches of snow appear likely
above 5500 feet in the oregon cascades for that time period. This
weather system bears some watching, as it's likely to be a quick
hitter in terms of precipitation.

At least one more round of valley rain and mountain snow is
expected Sunday before before a warming and drying trend
commences. Btl

Aviation For the 15 06z tafs... Except for along the coast,VFR
conditions are expected through the TAF period. Models are now
indicating an ifr ceiling this morning on the coast north of cape
blanco, but this is the first that models are indicating this, so
confidence is not high. Sven

Marine Updated 200 am pdt Monday 15 october 2019... Calmer
conditions are expected through Tuesday. Winds will shift to
the south as a cold front moves towards the waters Tuesday. This
will be the first in a series of stronger fronts which are expected
to move across the waters through late this week. Gusty south winds
and steep to very steep seas are expected with the first front
Tuesday night into Wednesday. Winds will be strongest from cape
blanco north and beyond 3 nm from shore. Late Wednesday morning
winds and wind gusts approaching gales could be possible west and
northwest of CAPE arago within a few nm from the cape. The gale
force winds have not been warned upon because of how brief and
isolated they are, but over short durations, winds may reach the
necessary speeds. If nothing else seas will be wind driven and very
steep with hazardous seas conditions likely. Thus, a hazardous seas
warning has been issued.

Not long after the front moves onshore, a high and long period west
to northwest swell will build into the coastal waters Wednesday
night through Thursday evening. Guidance suggest swell heights
peaking out between 16 and 18 feet at 16 seconds Thursday into
Thursday evening before gradually diminishing late Thursday night
into Friday. Given the above mentioned scenario, a hazardous seas
watch has been issued for the heavier swell. Also a high surf
advisory has been issued.

Meanwhile small craft conditions are expected outside of the
hazardous seas warning and watch due to gusty winds and choppy wind
driven seas Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon, then for the
higher swell Wednesday night through at least Thursday evening. For
details on all the hazards, please see mwwmfr.

It's possible for small craft conditions to continue into Friday,
but there's still plenty of time to address this. -miles
