Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 830 AM PST Mon Feb 24 2020

DISCUSSION. The most recent visible image shows low level stratus in portions of the Umpqua Basin and in the Grans Pass area. Elsewhere skies are clear and will remain that way for the rest of the day. Low clouds should burn off later this morning with clear skies this afternoon. It will be dry with milder temperatures this afternoon. Other than adjusting the sky cover for this morning, no other changes were needed. Please see previous discussion for more details on the weather for this week. -Petrucelli

AVIATION. For the 24/12Z TAF Cycle . LIFR ceilings and visibilities are occuring around the Umpqua valley and along portions of the coast. As for the Rogue Valley, there is a thin stratus deck around 4000 feet as moisture banks up on the southern portions of the valley. We'll see the fog burn off later this morning with VFR conditions for the day. More LIFR fog is possible tonight in the Umpqua valley as surface moisture lingers from recent rainfall.

-Smith

MARINE. Updated 830 AM PST Monday, 24 Feb 2020 . High and steep swell dominated seas will persist through this morning. Seas will then gradually lower later this afternoon, yet still remain elevated and hazardous to smaller crafts into the evening.

Conditions will remain quiet into Tuesday, yet a thermal trough will strengthen Wednesday. Wind waves will likely increase and another swell train will arrive from the west, bringing another round of high and steep seas, especially south of Cape Blanco. These high and steep seas will likely continue through Friday.

-Smith

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 312 AM PST Mon Feb 24 2020/

DISCUSSION . High pressure is building into the PacNW behind yesterday's front. Leftover moisture is resulting in clouds banking up against the Cascades/Siskiyous this morning as well as some low clouds/fog in areas that got the rain yesterday. The clouds and fog will gradually erode this morning and eventually give way to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. Highs in the 50s to near 60 can be expected west of the Cascades with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s in NE California and over the east side.

The dry pattern will continue through the entire work week as an upper level ridge remains in control with a surface thermal trough that will fluctuate in strength along the coast. This will bring a return of large diurnal temperature ranges with chilly mornings followed by milder afternoons. A weak disturbance will move over the top of the ridge Tuesday night into Wednesday which will disturb the pressure pattern briefly, but will largely go unnoticed, other than some high clouds Tuesday into Wednesday and perhaps a bit deeper of a marine push into the Umpqua Basin Thursday morning. Even so, models are showing the air mass warming aloft with model 850 temps nearing +10C over Medford Thursday and also perhaps Friday. It wouldn't be hard to imagine high temperatures getting close to 70 degrees on one or both of those days. However, we're currently forecasting mid to upper 60s here in the Rogue Valley, since vertical mixing probably won't be quite enough to mix out from that level.

While there are still many possibilities for this weekend, models continue to show the likelihood for cooler, showery weather as an upper trough unseats the upper ridge. Expect high temperatures to be about 10-15 degrees lower Sat/Sun. -Spilde

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