Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 841 PM PST Mon Feb 27 2017 .SHORT TERM...The forecast remains on track with a weak shortwave moving over the area this evening into tonight. Moist onshore flow with this disturbance is bringing numerous showers to the area, the greatest activity concentrated from the Cascades westward. Snow levels are currently around 2000 feet and are expected to lower slightly to 1500 feet overnight, and locally lower down to 1000 feet and possibly 500 feet. Snow showers will be mainly light in the valleys and models indicate the stronger showers will be focused over the higher terrain in the coastal mountains and in the Cascades. Snow accumulations are expected to be light for lower elevations with generally less than an inch for elevations below 3000 feet tonight through Tuesday morning. In the Cascades and western foothills, where snowfall is expected to be the greatest, expect 2 to 6 inches tonight into Tuesday morning. A winter weather advisory remains in place for the foothills of the Cascades in Douglas county. Please see the WSWMFR for details. Models continue to show that showers will decrease Tuesday as a weak ridge builds into the area from the west. && .AVIATION...28/00z TAF CYCLE... Showers will continue through the TAF period across most of the West Side and mountains. Showers will be most numerous mainly in the afternoon and evening hours, and least in coverage in the overnight and morning hours. During the day MVFR is generally expected in showers, while outside of showers VFR is generally expected. Overnight through the morning hours most areas will experience MVFR conditions, with local IFR. BTL && .MARINE...Updated 305 PM PST Monday 27 February 2017... 14 second period west swell and a shorter period fresh northwest swell will combine to keep seas steep through most of Tuesday morning. Showers will continue into Tuesday morning followed by a brief break of high pressure, and then more showers arrive again under a weak southwest flow late Tuesday into Wednesday from a weak front. The next series of more significant fronts will affect the area Friday into early next week. Peak seas during that time period are expected to be around 10 feet at 11 seconds. BTL && .PREV DISCUSSION... /Issued 705 PM PST Mon Feb 27 2017/ DISCUSSION... ..Short Term...Tonight through Thursday Night...An extensive area of clouds and showers remain in the area this afternoon, as cyclonic flow resides overhead and moisture continues to stream into the region. With snow levels hovering between 1500 and 2000 feet, most of the more populated areas west of the Cascades should see more in the way of rain, but in some of the heavier showers, snow levels could drop down to between 500 and 1000 feet. Later today and tonight, a weak trough will pass overhead, and its dynamics will support a brief intensification of the shower activity, and the mountains and foothills will likely pick up a few inches of additional snow. Upsloping will be strongest along the foothills of the Cascades in Douglas County, and it is here where a Winter Weather Advisory is in place through tonight. For more details on this area, see the winter weather message at PDXWSWMFR. Showers will continue into Tuesday, but will decrease in coverage and intensity throughout the day, and should come to an end Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning as high pressure builds and begins to clear the area. Some residual showers may occur along the coast north of Coos Bay as weak systems pass to our north, but the area should remain dry and on the cool side through the remainder of the short term forecast. -BPN Long Term...Friday through Monday...The operational models show general agreement in the forecast period. However the GFS suggest the upper low in the Gulf of Alaska will have a greater influence in our area next Sunday and Monday by way of lower snow levels, persistent precipitation and cooler temperatures. In contrast, the ECMWF and Canadian suggest the upper low will have less influence resulting in milder temperatures and higher snow levels. Despite the differences, the storm track will be close enough to bring precipitation to the forecast area, especially along and west of the Cascades. It`s all going to come down to the timing differences with individual fronts from Friday through Monday. -Petrucelli && .MFR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... OR...Winter Weather Advisory until 10 AM PST Tuesday for ORZ025. CA...None. Pacific Coastal Waters...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 10 AM PST Tuesday for PZZ350-356-370-376.
