Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters.. A coastal eddy within 30 nautical miles of the del norte and curry county coasts will bring southerly winds through Friday morning, mainly south of port orford with northerly winds beyond this area and to the north. Marine stratus and fog are likely to impact most of the waters overnight with some persisting into Friday. Impacting northerly winds are likely to return to the buoy 27 area Friday afternoon and evening, which could push seas to very steep for a few hours there Friday evening. A thermal trough pattern will then continue into next week with moderate north winds and steep to occasionally very steep seas.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 911 PM PDT Thu Apr 9 2020

DISCUSSION. Made some updates to sky cover for this evening and for the overnight period. Stratus along the coast has filled in most areas along the immediate coast and has intruded into most of southern Curry County. Don't really see this stratus going anywhere overnight and have adjusted the forecast to account for this. The other adjustment was to include cloud cover into portions of southern Siskiyou and Modoc counties for the overnight period. Another stratus deck that has lingered in the Sacramento Valley for much of the day is pushing northward into the southern fringes of the forecast area. This cloud layer isn't very deep, only about 4000 ft, so am not expecting it make it much further north than Mount Shasta City. The terrain will likely funnel the majority of the moisture into far eastern Siskiyou/far western Modoc counties tonight. In addition, there will likely be some patchy areas of stratus in the Umpqua Basin, similar to last night. Otherwise, the rest of the area should remain cloud free with quiet weather continuing into Friday.

The warm high temperature trend peaked today, with the Medford Airport reaching 82 degrees. This was just shy of the record of 85 degrees set in 1949 and again in 1988. Montague, CA, tied their record with 81 degrees set in 1985. While it was a warm day in Brookings yesterday with 82 degrees, today's high temperature was 21 degrees cooler. Overall, high temperatures will be on the downward trend through this weekend, while still remaining above normal. For more details on this, see the previous discussion below. /BR-y

AVIATION. For the 10/00Z TAF Cycle . Along the coast . Gusty north winds are expected from Port Orford northward through this evening. Once these winds diminish, expect a quick return of LIFR conditions in stratus that will persist through Friday morning. South of Port Orford, IFR/LIFR conditions will persist into Friday morning due to a southerly stratus surge. These lower conditions will likely improve some late Friday morning, but never really clear.

In the Umpqua Basin . Scattered IFR conditions are expected to develop overnight and a brief period of IFR conditions is possible around sunrise for KRBG. Conditions will improve to VFR by late Friday morning.

Elsewhere, VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF period. /BR-y

MARINE. Updated 830 PM PDT Thursday, 9 April 2020 . A coastal eddy within 30 nautical miles of the Del Norte and Curry County coasts will bring southerly winds through Friday morning, mainly south of Port Orford with northerly winds beyond this area and to the north. Marine stratus and fog are likely to impact most of the waters overnight with some persisting into Friday. Impacting northerly winds are likely to return to the Buoy 27 area Friday afternoon and evening, which could push seas to very steep for a few hours there Friday evening. A thermal trough pattern will then continue into next week with moderate north winds and steep to occasionally very steep seas. -Spilde/BTL

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 325 PM PDT Thu Apr 9 2020/

DISCUSSION . A ridge centered over the eastern Pacific Ocean is likely to persist during the next week. This will generally produce a continuation of dry weather with abnormally warm inland conditions (Highs at 5 to 15 degrees above normal). But, the day- to- day conditions will not be carbon copies. Notable amongst these variations are that this afternoon is likely the warmest of the bunch for most inland sites, winds east of the Cascades will be breezy to windy (and gusty at 25 to 35 mph) Saturday afternoon and evening, and especially notable is that the shifting thermal trough will produce variation in the extent and duration of coastal stratus.

A southerly surge of stratus made for a much different day near Brookings compared to yesterday. It was 73 degrees last evening, and 52 degrees now. This stratus is likely to persist into mid- morning Friday. Meantime, stratus is expected to develop and thicken north of Cape Blanco around midnight then persist all the way through Friday and Friday night into Saturday morning . with the caveat that some thinning of the cloud cover is likely on Friday afternoon. The stratus is not expected to be thick enough to support widespread drizzle, but north facing areas of terrain may be favored to produce a few patches Friday morning. Considering the next week, it is likely that Friday will take the prize for longest duration and greatest extent of stratus for the Coos and Douglas coast. Each morning from Saturday through Monday looks likely to trend toward lesser extent/duration. Arguably, the biggest challenge in the 7-day forecast is determining the temperatures for Brookings as low level flow will vary between slightly west of north to north to northeast.

The increase in winds (especially on the east side) on Saturday will be due to the passage of a trough southeastward across northern Idaho into western Montana.

Coastal conditions on Sunday will be an improvement compared to the next couple of days. Meanwhile, there will be little change in the dry conditions inland. Most notable in that regard, it will be colder by several degrees on Sunday morning than in previous days Cooling of highs will be by a few to several degrees. still mainly 5 to 10 degrees above normal with upper 60s to lower 70s on the west side and upper 50s to lower 60s on the east side.

Some minor uncertainty in the bigger picture develops by mid-week. But, the historical bias would suggest betting against the minority of models that weaken the ridge and allow a trough to survive with sufficient strength to bring a slight chance of showers.

Late next week, around Friday or Saturday, the pattern is likely to finally appreciably change and become more progressive with temperatures trending at least closer to normal and the next possibility of precipitation.

MFR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. OR . None.

CA . None.

Pacific Coastal Waters . Small Craft Advisory until 5 AM PDT Sunday for PZZ350-356-370-376. Hazardous Seas Watch from Friday afternoon through late Friday night for PZZ356-376. Hazardous Seas Warning until 11 PM PDT this evening for PZZ356-376.
