Discussion for Medford, OR
MARINE...Updated 230 AM Thursday November 30, 2023...Active weather will persist well into next week with multiple fronts expected to pass through the region. Conditions now hazardous to small craft in the outer waters will spread across the waters this afternoon. Seas will continue to build tonight with a steep northwest swell between 11 and 12 feet across the waters. When a strong front moves through on Friday, gusty south winds will combine with the existing swell to increase the steepness and chaotic-ness of the seas. This will lead to a period of steep to very steep seas late tonight into Friday afternoon. The steepest seas are expected north of Port Orford where the strongest winds are expected. Gale force gusts are possible north of Cape Blanco with the frontal passage Friday afternoon. The northwest swell will rebuild Saturday and grow through Sunday. Meanwhile, another front will pass through the region bringing another round of wind seas. The strongest of these systems is likely to affect the waters early Sunday through Monday, with gales possible north of Cape Blanco. Seas will peak Sunday afternoon at around 14 to 17 ft, which would make bar crossings increasingly more hazardous. Sea conditions are likely to remain high and steep or very steep through Thursday. Future observations will help to determine the timing and level of additional hazards. -DW/BR-y .BEACH HAZARDS...Active weather returns to the region today and continues well into next week. A series of fronts will move through the region during this time along with multiple moderate swell trains. An extended period of sustained wave action is expected. Breaking waves of 15 to 20 ft will coincide with higher than normal ocean levels, leading to an increased risk of beach erosion. Additionally, there is a minor risk of sneaker waves as these swell trains build into the waters. Confidence is low, however, considering wind wave interference is likely to limit, but not completely negate the sneaker threat. If venturing to area beaches during this time, use caution when visiting and remember to never turn your back on the ocean! /BR-y
