Synopsis for the southern oregon coastal waters..A cold front will bring south winds and building westerly swell tonight into Wednesday, highest north of cape blanco. A thermal trough will restrengthen Thursday with north gales and very steep hazardous seas possible south of cape blanco late in the afternoon and evening. Conditions then remain hazardous to small craft through Friday. Winds and seas lower briefly Friday night into Saturday, but gales are possible again by Monday.

Synopsis A fall like storm system will bring widespread, and
locally heavy, Wednesday. Westerly flow and mild conditions return
heading into the weekend. A weak system brushes by on Saturday with
light rains possible across the north. Offshore high pressure begins
building early next week bringing a gradual warming trend.

Short term Tonight through Friday... Mature low pressure center
located near 45n 145w is at the heart of a slowly deepening offshore
trough. The trough has tapped into a notably moist tropically
sourced moisture plume with pw values as high as 2.50". That
moisture is getting entrained into the frontal structure with the
cold front pegged to cross the forecast area during daylight hours
Wednesday. Fortunately, the highest pw will not make it to the
frontal zone by tomorrow morning, however, there will still be 1.80"-
2.00" moisture plumes phasing into the front by late tonight and
early Wednesday.

The 12z hi-resolution convective allowing models (cams) have a rough
consensus that the precip evolution will largely be focused on a 2-3
hour window where precip rates will be enhanced by some embedded
convection. However, the global and mesoscale models are not hinting
at much instability associated with the front. Suspect there is just
enough conditional instability to warrant the pinpoint pockets of
45+ dbz modeled composite reflectivity. Model soundings do indicate
a few hour period near the frontal passage where the odd thunder
clap may occur. Did add in a slight chance mention in a narrow
ribbon across the area from west to east as the front passes by
during the late morning through early evening.

The pinpointed QPF maxes mean a wider range of potential QPF values
brings considerable uncertainty to which locations will see the
higher end of the potential rain closer to three-quarters of an inch
and to those which will see the lower end around several hundredths
to a quarter-inch. If nothing else, the cams agree that everywhere
in the CWA will likely see measurable rain. Unfortunately, the
central cascades and lane county foothills are a little less
certain, but still have an above average shot at picking up at least
some measurable rain, albeit more likely limited in nature.

Showers will taper off from late Wednesday evening with the last
vestiges hanging on longest over the cascades Thursday morning.

Westerly flow then takes over heading in to the weekend with
temperatures starting to warm about 5-8 degrees after tomorrow
roughly 15 degree drop. Jbonk

Long term Friday night through Tuesday... A shortwave will slide
north of the region and appears to have enough moisture in the flow
to bring some light rains across the far north. Amounts may struggle
to reach a tenth, if anything. Did increase pops some but have
leaned on an overall model blend for their output.

Longwave ridging tries to build over the west coast Sunday but will
have an easier time Monday and Tuesday as the upper trough drifts
away to the east. Temperatures will gradually warm toward the mid
and upper 80s as an initial projection but there is still some
uncertainly as the driving thermal trough may remain closer to the
cascades which would lend toward the slight cooling effects from
onshore flow during the afternoons. Jbonk

Aviation Vfr conditions expected to continue to prevail
through 08z for most locations. Satellite images continue to
show a complex cloud system slowly pushing onshore. Some low
vfr high MVFR clouds can be seen via satellite as well as surface
based obs along the coast. Expect a lowering of CIGS toward MVFR
levels through this evening along the coast. Have tried to
provide reasonable timing of these CIGS but have low mid
confidence in the timing.

Inland locations are expected to have a gradual lowering of cigs
to lowVFR through this evening and into Wednesday morning.

Confidence remains the same as to the timing of precipitation.

Coastal precipitation starts around 08z to 11z Wednesday. Inland
locations start around 16z to 19z Wednesday. Precipitation will
start sooner at northern locations then slowly propagate south.

Expect CIGS to lower as well as vis in heavier rain to MVFR as
the day progresses on Wednesday. Some isolated thunderstorms
could be present after around 12z Wednesday.

Kpdx and approaches... PredominatelyVFR expected tonight.

Increasing clouds late tonight early Wednesday with lowVFR
clouds around 3500 to 4000 feet developing. Precipitation
starting tomorrow around 15z to 17z Wednesday, along with a
slight chance of thunderstorms near the terminal starting around
22z Wednesday. 42

Marine Seas remain in the 4 to 6 ft range, mainly from a nw
swell. That will change today as an unseasonable front
approaches the waters through tonight, then moves through the
waters Wednesday. Small craft winds are being seen at bouy 46089.

Expect these winds to progress further into the outer waters
through the evening, then progress to the inner waters by
Wednesday afternoon. The strongest winds are still expected from
tonight through Wednesday with gusts of 30 kt in our outer
waters with the potential for some isolated gusts higher than 30
kt.

Seas will generally start to build towards 6 to 8 feet with the
potential for some steep square seas too. Wind wave and swell
associated with this system could push seas towards 10 feet
Wednesday and possibly Thursday. The area that would have the
best chance of having 10 foot seas is our northern waters due to
larger swells and potentially stronger wind. 42
