DISCUSSION
As the upper low to the southeast continues to shift eastward out of the area and a weak front moves inland to the north, we will continue to see cloudy and cool conditions through much of the day. Some light precipitation will continue, mainly near the coast. and into possibly into portions of Douglas County. This evening and tonight, expect dry weather and partial clearing skies from the Cascades west with mostly clear east of the Cascades. Then dry weather is expected through the week with a gradual warming trend. Morning low temperatures will be cool to cold the next few nights though, with Wednesday morning expected to be the coldest period. Temperatures Tuesday night and Wednesday morning are expected to lower into the lower to mid 30s for inland valleys west of the Cascades and mid 20s to low 30s for east side valleys. This will result in areas of frost west of the Cascades with a potential for some agricultural impacts for these areas.



AVIATION
15/12Z TAFs...A large mix of ceilings currently persists across the forecast area this morning with some IFR ceilings in northern California and MVFR ceilings over locations west of the Cascades. There are also patches of clear skies in Lake and Klamath Counties. Cloud cover should diminish a bit this morning as the atmosphere begins to mix out. Soundings show enough moisture to support plenty of cumulus development around the TAF sites today with scattered clouds around 2500 to 4500 feet AGL. Conditions dry out later this evening into tonight as high pressure builds in.

By tonight, there will be some mid level ceilings and a low chance of fog in Roseburg(KRBG) as a stronger surface inversion builds in.

MARINE
Updated 845 AM Monday, April 15, 2024...Conditions improve for a brief period this morning as the upper level pattern transitions into a strengthening thermal trough. Satellite shows some clearing in the southern waters, which suggests this offshore northerly flow is starting to pick up this morning. However, seas haven't responded yet near buoy 27. This pattern will bring another round of gusty north winds, along with steep to very steep seas, especially south of Cape Blanco.

The thermal trough is expected to peak Tuesday evening into Wednesday when strong gusty winds are expected to expand north of Cape Blanco. There is uncertainty as to how far north this expansion will occur. So while we only have an advisory in place from Monday morning through Tuesday morning, we do anticipate additional headlines beyond Tuesday morning as steep to very steep seas are likely to continue. Gusty north winds will persist into Thursday, with conditions expected to improve toward the end of the week. /BR-y/Smith



PREV DISCUSSION
/Issued 502 AM PDT Mon Apr 15 2024/

DISCUSSION...

Low cloud cover is the predominant condition for this morning with lingering moisture after this weekend's showers, and a weak, weakening cold front making its way across northern Oregon. The low level moisture may be sufficiently deep, and lift sufficiently strong for a few drizzly showers at the Coos and Douglas coast until around 11 AM. The low clouds are expected to linger longest in the Coquille and Umpqua valleys, into this afternoon. Otherwise, the trend will be for diminishing cloud cover during the morning.

Model agreement/forecast confidence is high through Friday with dry conditions (after the slight chance of coastal showers this morning) and a warming trend of high temperatures expected. By Thursday and Friday, highs will be around 5 to 10 degrees above normal.

The main uncertainty, and likely the most impactful aspect of the forecast will be the extent of overnight cooling. As is typical in our spring and fall seasons, there will be a wide range between our inland low and high temperatures. Particularly on Tuesday through Thursday mornings, widespread freezing temperatures are expected to start the day across the east side and over the mountains. But also, patches of frost are likely in west side valleys, especially away from city centers.

There is better model agreement this morning in timing the next cold front across our area on Saturday. This looks to be a seasonably weak front with the highest chance of light rain for the coast, Douglas County, and northward. This would likely also bring some modest cooling, sending highs back to around a few degrees above normal.

Model differences quickly increase for next week, Day 6 onward, but a trend toward more active, seasonable weather is likely.
