Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 316 AM PST Thu Feb 27 2020

DISCUSSION. Morning water vapor channel satellite imagery depicts upper ridging affecting Southern Oregon and Northern California, while an upper low spins well offshore to the south between Hawaii and Baja California. This pattern portends sunny skies and warm afternoon temperatures across most of the forecast area today. Towards the coast, low clouds will play a role in the weather this morning and moreso tonight into Friday as a large batch of stratus grows over the coastal waters and heads inland tomorrow. Temperatures today will be the warmest of the week, and some cooling is expected Friday as clouds increase across the area, though afternoon readings Friday will still be 10 degrees above normal away from the coast. Friday's increasing winds across the area will be a sign of a change in weather, with a much cooler air mass approaching behind a cold front that should arrive Friday night.

Not much rain is expected with this cold front Friday night, but there's a better chance for rain and mountain snow Saturday afternoon into Saturday night as an upper trough moves overhead. Total snow over the mountains is only expected to be a few inches above 3000 feet elevation though snow levels will dip to around 2000 feet as precipitation tapers off late Saturday. There's no doubt Saturday will feel much different than Friday thanks to a significantly colder air mass. 500mb temperatures are cold enough with the trough to support thunderstorm chances over the coastal waters and just inland over the Umpqua Basin Saturday afternoon and evening.

A few showers will linger Sunday, and some impulses will try to make their way over the offshore ridge and into the forecast area early next week, but these look weak and shouldn't deliver much in the way of precipitation. What once looked like a potentially wet system early next week now looks pretty meager in the water delivery department. Any precipitation should be focused at the coast and from the Umpqua Divide north and east to the Cascades. Clouds will be more prevalent through the next week compared to recent abundant sunshine. Ensembles continue to point toward some wetter systems towards next weekend, but there is no wet signal that we're confident about right now. Keene

AVIATION. For the 27/06Z TAF Cycle . VFR ceilings/visibility will continue through the TAF period. The exception will be in portions of the Umpqua Basin and along the Coast. Low ceilings and fog will be possible in these locations tonight. If fog and low stratus is able to form LIFR conditions are possible around the locations mentioned above. Otherwise the fog and stratus should clear up pretty quickly after sunrise and VFR conditions will prevail shortly after sunrise as the boundary layer dries out.

MARINE. Updated 230 AM PST Thursday 27 Feb 2020 . Moderate north winds and west swell will continue steep seas through tonight with the strongest winds between Cape Blanco and Gold Beach from 5 to 30 NM offshore. Conditions will improve briefly Friday, then a cold front arrives Friday night. The front Friday night doesn't look strong, so seas will remain swell dominated through Saturday. Strong north winds are expected early Sunday morning into Sunday evening with seas likely at 10 to 13 feet as wind waves become dominant but combine with northwest swell trains at 12 seconds and 16 seconds. Another brief period of improvement is expected on Monday. But, a new thermal trough likely forms along the coast with increasing north winds yet again. -DW

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
