Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Medford OR 831 AM PDT Mon Mar 27 2017 .DISCUSSION...27/12Z NAM in. The northern hemispheric projection shows a wave number of four around the globe and occasionally hints at a five over the next several days. This argues for a moderately progressive pattern. That is indeed what we will get over the next several days. Overall the pattern looks quite spring like...with weaker storms driven by low amplitude upper level troughs. The primary storm track will remain to the north of the area...but there will be some action down here. A long wave trough is now moving onshore along the west coast and the last in a series of short waves is rounding the bottom of the trough as it moves through. This will support continued shower activity this morning. Showers will diminish this afternoon as this system moves out to the east and a long wave ridge builds into the west coast. The current Winter Weather Advisory for the Cascades is set to expire at 11 AM this morning and that looks good at this time. There will be a break in the action as the ridge dominates the weather picture. This will bring dry and warmer weather to the area Monday night into Tuesday. The ridge axis will break to the east of the area Tuesday night and a strong short wave riding up the back side of the ridge will move onshore to the north of the area Wednesday. A warm front will move onshore Tuesday night...followed by a trailing cold front Wednesday afternoon. With most of the upper level support remaining to the north...both fronts will be relatively weak this far south. Even so...most if not all of the Medford CWA will get some light precipitation Tuesday night into Wednesday night. A stronger short wave with a more southerly trajectory will move onshore late Wednesday night with the long wave trough. This along with short waves diving down the back side of the trough will support post-frontal showers lasting into Thursday evening...but shower intensity and coverage will diminish through the day Thursday. After that...another long wave ridge will build into the west coast and this will bring another round of dry and warmer weather beginning Friday. && .AVIATION...27/12Z TAF CYCLE...Unstable conditions will result in scattered precipitation this morning. VFR CIGS are expected to be the predominate condition today. Could not rule out temporary MVFR CIGS with partial mountain obscurations are possible in showers this morning, but confidence is not high enough to put these conditions in the TAF`s. Freezing levels are expected to start out around 4000 feet, then rising to around 5000 feet MSL this afternoon. Confidence is higher for VFR conditions this afternoon through this evening as the atmosphere becomes more stable. For now kept VFR CIGS in tonight, but later shifts may need to evaluate the potential for low clouds and patchy fog for west side valleys if there`s enough clearing. -Petrucelli && .MARINE...Updated 200 AM PDT Monday 27 March 2017...West winds will continue today as weak low pressure remains north of the waters, but they will remain below advisory criteria. However higher west swell will move into the waters late this morning through this afternoon bringing higher seas. The higher seas should remain beyond 10 nm from shore this morning, but as the higher swell comes in, the inner waters will then get impacted by small craft conditions. Meanwhile the outer waters could reach hazardous seas warning criteria with seas expected to be very steep around 15 feet. Steep seas could linger through at least Thursday morning. -Petrucelli && .MFR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... OR...Winter Weather Advisory until 11 AM PDT this morning for ORZ027-028. CA...None. Pacific Coastal Waters...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 11 AM PDT Thursday for PZZ350-356. Hazardous Seas Warning until 11 PM PDT this evening for PZZ370-376. Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 11 AM PDT Thursday for PZZ370-376.
