Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 235 PM PST Fri Mar 5 2021

DISCUSSION. Near Term . Through Sunday Night . Winds are easing in Oregon west of the Cascades as the front continues to progress inland. Winds in the Shasta Valley will be the next location to lower. East of the Cascades, winds will remain elevated through the evening before lowering overnight.

Have elected not to issue a winter weather advisory for portions of Jackson and Josephine County because warm road temperatures should cause snow to melt on contact. Melting snow will still cause slippery road conditions and freezing temperatures overnight could lead to untreated roads developing light ice buildup. Snow levels are still expected to fall between 1500-2000 feet as precipitation tapers off west of the Cascades and could go as low as 1200-1300 feet as very scattered showers move in. Where these scattered showers produce precipitation will be where they get help from terrain with most of the meteorological forcing moving east of the area. In Jackson county, folks near Roxy Anne Peak and higher elevations around Ashland could get some wintry mix as a result of these showers. Also along I-5 from Wolf Creek to Canyonville in Douglas County. East of the Cascades everywhere should observe at least 0.5" of snow with locally higher amounts at higher elevation. The best forcing for precipitation will be in SE Modoc County and areas just south and east. At the coast Showers will slowly taper off except in the south coast mountains where upslope flow could keep showers going through Saturday morning. The one place where snow tonight is still expected to create advisory level snow conditions for most of central and western Siskiyou County. See the WSWMFR product for further details.

Another front will move into the area through Sunday morning, but will be weaker than this current one. It does not look like wind or winter headlines will be needed at this time. The Rogue Valley is currently forecast to get 0.01" from this front and places south and east are unlikely to receive any precipitation, especially places east of the Cascades. Even the Umpqua Basin will stay on the dry side with only up to 0.1" expected. Precipitation will be focused mainly in the foothills and mountains along the coast and in Douglas County. Snow levels west of the Cascades will start around 3000 feet, drop quickly as night sets in to around 2000 feet, and hold there through morning. East of the Cascades snow levels could remain a bit higher, around 2500 feet as southerly winds hold warmer air in the area. One impact to keep an eye on is the potential for frost Sunday night in to monday. Temperatures along the coast have been trending colder, but the point probability at North Bend puts the chance of 37 degrees or less at 20% per the NBM. Also to consider is that winds are expected to be blowing between 5-10 mph through the night and for frost, the location would need to be fairly well sheltered for it to form. -Miles

LONG TERM. (Monday through Friday) . There is high confidence in the ensemble model solutions that an upper low will drop south out of the Gulf of Alaska on Sunday, becoming located off the PacNW coast on Monday. As the low continues to shift southward off the coast of southern Oregon and northern California it will bring a cold and moist pattern to the area. Models and ensembles are showing good confidence in light to moderate precipitation much of the area, with the best chances for precipitation along the coast and into Josephine and Siskiyou Counties and along the Cascades. Snow levels are initially expected around 2000 to 3000 feet Monday but may lower to around 1500 to 2000 feet Monday night and Tuesday. In western and southern Siskiyou County, where precipitation amounts may be greater and snow levels are expected down to some valley floors, there is a potential for moderate snow impacts late Monday into Tuesday, especially in the mountains of western Siskiyou and in the Mount Shasta City area. For inland areas, west of the Cascades in southwest Oregon, precipitation is forecast to be mainly light as snow levels lower Monday night and Tuesday morning. However, moderate precipitation is possible for some areas, mainly across Curry and southern Josephine. We will continue to evaluate and monitor the potential for snow impacts and update as needed.

Wednesday, chances for precipitation will diminish as the low moves inland over southern and south-central California. Then models are in good agreement indicating an upper ridge building into the region late Wednesday through Friday, which would result in mainly dry weather. There is lower confidence in the strength of this ridge, which will factor into whether any weak disturbances affect the area late in the week and potentially bring some light precipitation to some western portions of the CWA.

AVIATION. For the 05/18Z TAF Cycle . Strong winds remain the a concerns through 03z. A slow moving front is gradually pushing inland today and east of the Cascades tonight. Ahead of, and just along the front, strong winds are affecting much of the area, with strongest winds from the Southern Oregon Cascades east and in the Shasta Valley and eastward. Winds will gradually ease this afternoon and evening as the front moves inland with lighter winds expected this evening and overnight.

VFR conditions with areas of MVFR and terrain obscurations are expected from the Cascades west this afternoon as the front moves inland. Showers will continue overnight and expect MVFR cigs/vis to increase and local IFR conditions are possible. East of the Cascades, expect mainly VFR through this afternoon, with areas of MVFR conditions and local IFR developing in the evening and overnight as the front pushes eastward. -CC

MARINE. Updated 200 PM PST Friday 05 Mar 2021 . A new batch of headlines have been issued to cover the evolution of conditions through the weekend. Winds and seas peaked early this morning, but seas will remain very steep this evening. Seas will then be high and steep will gradually subsiding to 10 to 12 ft on Saturday.

Another front Saturday night may bring gale force south gusts, with strongest winds and very steep seas north of Cape Blanco. Winds ease and seas become swell dominated Sunday as a heavy long period west-northwest swell builds into the waters.

Seas peak Sunday night at 17 to 21 ft at 17 to 18 seconds then gradually subside, remaining very high and very steep into early Monday morning. Seas gradually subside later Monday as another, weaker front passes through the region. The series of disturbances will continue through Tuesday with high and steep seas and episodes of advisory strength winds. Winds are likely to become northerly Tuesday night with seas becoming dominated by northerly wind seas. North winds will be strongest south of Cape Blanco with generally diminishing seas Wednesday into Friday. -DW
