Discussion A couple more dry days are expected before a
transition to an active, wet and cool pattern. Afternoon
temperatures will be near normal Monday and Tuesday under an upper
ridge of high pressure. It is remarkable how quickly the summer
afternoon breezes shut off in october as we have recently observed
much calmer afternoon winds in most valleys. As we head deeper
into fall, frontal systems will be mainly responsible for any
increasing winds. This will be the case on Tuesday east of the
cascades as winds increase ahead of the approaching frontal
system. Fog and low clouds are occurring as of 3:30 am in the
umpqua basin and coastal valleys such as coquille. They will
return again tomorrow night.

On Wednesday the cold front reaches the coast and brings breezy
conditions to the coast and areas east of the cascades. Gusts to
around 40 mph are possible in windier areas like the summer lake
area along highway 31, but wind advisory criteria (gusts to 45 mph)
will not likely be met per the latest data. The GFS has been steady
over the past 3 days or so in depicting rainfall reaching the coast
Wednesday morning. Rain will spread inland during the afternoon on
Wednesday. For the front and associated rainfall Wednesday through
Wednesday night, latest national blend of models (nbm) output
suggests and inch of rain at the coast, around a half inch of rain
for west side valleys, and a quarter inch of rainfall or less east
of the cascades. Snow levels will start out around 9000 feet and
then lower to about 7000 feet behind the front Wednesday night.

Therefore, we don't expect significant winter impacts with this
front.

This active trend is expected to continue through the latter half
of the week into the weekend. Model guidance has slowed and
trended slightly north in regards to the overall pattern, but do
agree that three distinct waves of heavier precipitation are
likely between Thursday and Sunday as multiple fronts make their
way through the region. Meanwhile, swift and moist onshore
mid upper level flow will keep precipitation chances ongoing,
especially along the coast and over the mountains where upslope
winds will be common. Although temperatures will be slightly below
normal for this time of year, snow levels should remain above
5000 feet throughout the extended term, so only the higher
mountain passes have the potential to see travel impacts due to
accumulating snow. -keene bpn schaaf

Aviation For the 14 06z tafs... Stratus withVFR ceilings has
filled in over the umpqua basin this evening and should remain in
place through the night. Guidance still suggests a lowering of this
stratus to MVFR ceilings by dawn, but confidence remains low that
this will actually occur.

Elsewhere,VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period. This
includes the north coast around koth due to persistent drying of the
air from offshore flow. It's not out of the question that local
stratus forms around dawn, but the odds are not high enough to
include in the koth taf. -wright

Marine Updated 300 am pdt Monday 14 october 2019... Steep seas and
gusty north winds will linger over the waters this morning into
early this afternoon. Seas are expected to subside Monday afternoon
into Tuesday morning. Winds will shift from north to south by early
Tuesday morning ahead of the arrival of the first in a a series of
stronger fronts which are expected to move across the waters through
late this week. Strong and gusty south winds and steep to very steep
seas are possible with the first front Tuesday night into Wednesday.

As additional fronts move through, high and very long period
northwest swell may build into the coastal waters Wednesday into
Thursday. Seas could reach hazardous conditions and high surf is
possible due to a longer period (between 15 and 16 seconds). Seas
are expected to gradually diminish late in the week into the
weekend. -cc
