Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters.. A marine stratus surge within 30 nautical miles of the del norte and curry county coasts will continue to disrupt northerly winds through Friday morning, mainly south of port orford. Low clouds and fog are likely with this surge. Otherwise, a thermal trough pattern is expected to be with us well into next week bringing periods of moderate north winds and steep to occasionally very steep seas. 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.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 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.

AVIATION. For the 09/18Z TAF Cycle . Gusty north wind are expected along the coast from Port Orford northward this afternoon and evening. A southerly stratus surge will result in IFR to LIFR in due to ceiling and VIS reductions south of there along and near the coast tonight through Friday morning. North of Port Orford IFR to LIFR will form overnight into Friday morning. Areas a far inland as Roseburg and Grants Pass could be affected briefly Friday morning. MVFR is likely to linger along the coast Friday afternoon. Otherwise, VFR conditions are expected to prevail. -BTL
