Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters.. Steep combined seas are expected this morning as a front approaches the coast. The front will pass onshore by noon today, then a larger northwest swell will build into the area later this evening. SWell will gradually diminish through Monday, but the thermal trough will rebuild by Monday evening. Gusty north winds and steep to very steep seas are expected for much of the week, particularly south of cape blanco.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 314 AM PST Sun Feb 23 2020

DISCUSSION. A shortwave disturbance will move north of the area today. A cold front offshore this morning will move through bringing mostly light precipitation with rain along the coast and in the Umpqua Valley and some snow in the Cascades. Rain amounts will be 0.10-0.25 of an inch for most areas along the coast through Douglas County and into the Cascade Foothills, but up to 0.50 of an inch could occur in the Coast Ranges and in the Cascades north of Crater Lake. South of those areas, less than 0.10 of an inch is expected, and we could miss out completely on measurable precip here in Medford as will move of NorCal and areas east of the Cascades. Snow amounts in the Cascades will only be 1-3 inches. But, the precipitation won't be the main impact. This disturbance is packing some fairly impressive mid-level winds, so expect westerly breezes to surface just about everywhere this afternoon. Over the east side, though, expect some strong, gusty winds nearer to the axis of the strongest 700mb flow. Latest guidance is indicating the potential for 60-65 mph wind gusts this afternoon over the higher terrain of the east side, but also along Highway 31 between Summer Lake and Paisley. We have upgraded the wind advisory to a high wind warning (NPWMFR) for that area, while keeping the rest of the wind advisory intact. Wind gusts of 30-40 mph are possible at Klamath Falls, Lakeview and Alturas, just outside of the advisory areas. Winds will subside this evening and remaining showers will end overnight as the air mass dries out and upper ridging offshore takes hold.

Overall, expect dry weather this coming work week with east winds that will be strongest over the ridges at night and early in the mornings. Some fog/low clouds will occur in the valleys during the late night/morning hours. One weak system riding over top of the upper ridge will disturb the flow pattern Tuesday night into Wednesday, but won't have much noticeable effect on the sensible weather. Large diurnal temperature variations, much like last week, can be expected again with chilly mornings, and then milder afternoons. The air mass will be a little warmer this time though, so the mild afternoons should result in highs here in Medford in the mid to upper 60s. A few of the higher ensemble members are showing the possibility of 70+ degrees Thu/Fri.

There are a wide range of solutions heading into next weekend, but at this time, the majority of the guidance indicates a break down of the ridge with troughing moving back into the PacNW. This would result in increasing chances for precipitation along with a cool down. -Spilde

AVIATION. For the 23/06Z TAF Cycle . A weak front will begin moving towards the coastline overnight, with MVFR/IFR ceilings and light rain spreading inland to the Cascades by morning, and into portions of the East Side by afternoon. Terrain obscuration will become widespread as well. For the coastal valleys and the Umpqua Basin, a few hours of MVFR/IFR in fog or low stratus are expected before the front arrives, but otherwise, the front itself will be the primary cause of diminishing conditions.

Winds ahead of the front will become gusty over the coastal waters, and along the coast, but will only gradually weaken by the end of the TAF period. Strong winds are likely across the East Side as well, and mountain wave turbulence here is highly likely during the afternoon hours. -BPN

MARINE. Updated 200 AM PST Sunday, 23 Feb 2020 . A cold front approaching from the northwest will generate breezy winds and steeps seas this morning. We'll see seas continue to increase later this evening into tonight. Seas will be at their peak later tonight hitting 15 to 18 feet in most locations. We'll see seas lower on Monday and drop below small craft advisory thresholds Monday night. Seas will then elevate Wednesday as another swell moves in from the west. In addition, wind waves will build as a thermal trough strengthens off the coast. Seas will likely be hazardous to smaller crafts Wednesday night as the higher swell combines with northerly wind waves south of Cape Blanco. -Smith
