Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 309 AM PDT Tue Apr 7 2020

DISCUSSION. In short, an upper ridge of high pressure with axis centered over the NE Pacific waters will dominate the weather through the next 7 days. This means we can expect mostly, if not completely, precipitation-free conditions. Additionally, a warming trend is likely through Thursday at least. Lastly, because of the relatively quiet conditions, weather impacts will be minimal to nil through the upcoming weekend.

In the near-term, the air mass will dry considerably through Thursday. Sunshine will become more abundant each day. A thermal trough will develop Tuesday near the coast in response to upper ridging and warming surface temperatures. By Wednesday morning east to northeast winds will become gusty across areas east of the Cascades, over the Cascades, and over the high terrain of extreme Southwest Oregon and Western Siskiyou County. Winds will diminish some and transition to a more northerly direction overall on Thursday. Throughout the week the one area that will see plenty of low clouds and occasional fog is the coast, especially from Cape Blanco northward. The latest reliable data along with our conceptual model for this part of the forecast (NAM12 BL/975mb moisture) show plenty of coastal low clouds through Wednesday morning, some clearing Wednesday afternoon into Thursday, and then a return of marine layer stratus/fog Thursday night as the thermal trough moves inland.

Temperatures will generally peak Thursday (except Wednesday at the coast near Brookings due to moderate northeast winds and "Chetco Effect") as the thermal trough shifts inland. Afternoon readings will be 15 to 20 degrees above normal on Thursday. Even though temperatures will reach well above normal values, daily records are unlikely, especially for sites with long periods of record (think Medford). Record high temperatures in the Rogue Valley are in the low 90s for Thursday, and we are forecast near-80 degree readings.

A general cooling trend for the CWA is expected Friday into early next week, but temperatures will still likely be above normal, and dry conditions should continue. Looking at the collective of ECE and GEFS ensemble members, just a few of them show any rainfall Monday into Tuesday . and are totally dry through Sunday morning.

AVIATION. For the 07/06Z TAF Cycle . Currently it's MVFR for all areas except along the coast, from Cape Blanco north, where MVFR conditions persist. Areas of MVFR Cigs may develop overnight and Tuesday morning in valleys west of the Cascades, including the Illinois, lower Rogue Valley near Grants pass, Applegate; and should continue along the coast. Anticipating MVFR/IFR conditions in the Umpqua Basin from Cigs/vis. These lower Cigs will create terrain obscurations in the early and mid-morning. -miles

MARINE. Updated 200 AM PDT Tuesday 7 April 2020 . Conditions over the coastal waters will be dominated by the thermal trough, with gusty north winds and steep to very steep wind-driven seas persisting through this weekend. The thermal trough will weaken slightly at times, but conditions are not expected to significantly improve until the pattern changes, possibly next week. -BPN

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
