NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR 
217 PM PST TUE NOV 25 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A WARM FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER WESTERN WASHINGTON AND
EXTREME NORTHWEST OREGON WILL CONTINUE TO LIFT NORTH TONIGHT AND
WEDNESDAY. HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WEDNESDAY SHOULD BE STRONG ENOUGH TO
KEEP MOST OF THE AREA DRY...EXCEPT FOR SW WASHINGTON. THE NEXT
WEATHER SYSTEM REACHES THE COAST LATE WED EVENING AND THEN MOVES
INLAND OVERNIGHT AND INTO THANKSGIVING MORNING. MUCH COOLER AIR
ASSOCIATED WITH THE NORTHERN BRANCH OF THE JET STREAM IS FORECAST TO
SPREAD OVER THE AREA THIS WEEKEND...FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF EAST WIND IN
THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE. SNOW LEVELS WILL LOWER DRAMATICALLY THIS
WEEKEND...BUT SLOWLY RISE EARLY NEXT WEEK. 
&&

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY...500 MB RIDGE REMAINS CENTERED
ALONG 130W WITH A BAROCLINIC ZONE RIDING OVER THE TOP. KLGX RADAR
INDICATING RETURNS OVER MUCH OF SW WA. HOWEVER...ECHO INTENSITY HAS
DIMINISHED AND THIS IS EVIDENT IN THE LATEST 6-HR PRECIP AMOUNTS.
RAINFALL RATES AS OF 21Z IN THE SW WA CASCADES AND FOOTHILLS HAVE
EASED TO AROUND ONE TENTH OR LESS. 24-HR TOTALS GENERALLY 1 TO 3
INCHES...WITH SOME SNOTELS COMING IN WITH 3.5 INCHES. 500 MB HEIGHTS
NEAR 570 DM COMBINED WITH 1000-500 MB THICKNESS VALUES IN THE MID TO
UPPER 550S AND 850 MB TEMPS 8-10C HAVE RESULTED IN NEAR-RECORD
DAYTIME TEMPERATURES IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY. THE MILD AIR MASS WILL
BE CONDUCING TO VALLEY FOG FORMATION TONIGHT...ESPECIALLY WITH THE
RELATIVELY HIGH DEW POINTS. FOG WILL FAVOR THE SOUTH HALF OF THE AREA
WHERE LESS CLOUD COVER IS EXPECTED.  

THE THANKSGIVING FRONT IS STILL ON TRACK TO REACH THE COASTLINE LATE
WED EVENING THEN MIGRATE INLAND OVERNIGHT AND THANKSGIVING MORNING.
THE REMNANTS OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY STALL ACROSS THE INTERIOR
VALLEYS AND CASCADES THANKSGIVING NIGHT. THE GFS AND ECMWF HANDLE THE
QPF FIELD VALID 06Z FRI QUITE DIFFERWENTLY. THE GFS SHOWS AN OBVIOUS
BREAK IN THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY...WITH SEPARATE QPF BULLS-EYES OVER FAR
SW OREGON AND ALSO IN THE S WA CASCADES AND FOOTHILLS. THE ECMWF SHOW
A MUCH LARGER SRN QPF AREA EXTENDING FURTHER N...TO THE CENTRAL
INTERIOR VALLEYS AND CASCADES. BY 12Z FRI THE ECMWF HAS A BROAD SWATH
OF QPF OVER THE ENTIRE FORECAST AREA WHILE THE GFS MAINTAINS THE TWO
SEPARATE AND DISTANT CORES. IN ANY EVENT...THE AIR MASS WILL REMAIN
QUITE MILD THROUGH THU NIGHT WITH SNOW LEVELS WELL
ABOVE THE CASCADE PASSES. 

THINGS START TO CHANGE FRI AS BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS SHOW THE
NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN JET STREAM BRANCHES PHASING TOGETHER. BOTH
MODELS HAVE A MUCH COLDER CANADIAN AIR MASS SAGGING S THROUGH NRN WA
FRI. MODELS DEVELOP AN AREA OF ENHANCED QPF ALONG THE REMNANT FRONTAL
BOUNDARY. THE EXACT LOCATION OF THIS BOUNDARY REMAINS IN QUESTION.
THE GFS HAS IT ALONG A LINE FROM NEWPORT TO ALBANY WHILE THE ECMWF
HAS IT A BIT MORE NORTH BUT WITH LESSER AMOUNTS. WEISHAAR

.LONG TERM...FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY...COMPLICATED PATTERN
EVOLVES FRIDAY NIGHT AND SAT WITH THE COLDER AIR CONTINUING TO SLIDE
S THROUGH WA AND INTO NRN OREGON. 12Z GFS MORE IN LINE WITH THE
PREVIOUS COUPLE OF ECMWF RUNS...DEPICTING A COLD AIR WEDGE IN THE
CENTRAL COLUMBIA GORGE BY 00Z SUN. LOOK FOR THE EAST WIND TO RETURN
AS WELL...BEGINNING SAT MORNING AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
BY 00Z SUN THE GFS HAS -8 TO -10C 850 MB AIR IN THE CENTRAL COLUMBIA
GORGE...WHILE THE ECMWF IS JUST A TOUCH WARMER. FORTUNATELY...THE
DRIER NLY FLOW WILL SHUNT PRECIP FURTHER TO THE S. A CLOSED LOW WELL
OF THE NRN CA COAST SAT STARTS TO DRIFT NE SAT NIGHT AND SUN. THERE
IS THE POTENTIAL FOR A DEFORMATION BAND OVER NRN CA TO DRIFT NWD LATE
SUN INTO MON. THIS COULD BE PROBLEMATIC AS THE MOISTURE OVERRUNS THE
COLD AIR....ESPECIALLY FOR THE COLUMBIA GORGE AND UPPER HOOD RIVER
VALLEY. WEISHAAR
&&

.AVIATION...A QUASI-STATIONARY FRONT NORTH OF THE AREA IS
RESULTING IN A MIX OF FLIGHT CONDITIONS. THE COAST HAS IFR/MVFR
CIGS...AND INLAND AREAS ARE VFR/MVFR. GUSTY SW WINDS WILL
CONTINUE FOR THE NORTH COAST AND KAST THROUGH TONIGHT. THE WINDS
WILL HELP KEEP THE ATMOSPHERE MIXED AND PROVIDE A BETTER CHANCE
FOR SOME MVFR CONDITIONS FOR THE NORTH COAST. KONP HOWEVER WILL
LIKELY REMAIN IFR INTO WED MORNING. CIGS SHOULD LIFT INLAND LATE
THIS AFTERNOON AND EXPECT SOME CLEARING. THEN EXPECT CIGS TO CRASH
AND VISIBILITIES TO REDUCE AS FOG DEVELOPS IN THE INTERIOR VALLEYS
LATE TONIGHT...WITH IFR CONDITIONS POSSIBLE.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...VFR THIS AFTERNOON WITH POSSIBLE CLOUD
BREAKS. CIGS SHOULD LOWER THIS EVENING TO MVFR. IF CLEARING DOES
OCCUR THIS EVENING...THEN FOG AND IFR CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE
LATE TONIGHT INTO WED MORNING. TJ

&&

.MARINE...MARGINAL SMALL CRAFT WINDS WITH GUSTS TO 25 KT WILL
PERSIST NORTH OF CASCADE HEAD THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING AS A
FRONT NORTH OF THE WATERS GRADUALLY LIFTS FURTHER NORTH. SEAS WILL
HOVER AROUND 9 FEET THROUGH WEDNESDAY MORNING. THE CURRENT
SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL BACK TO THE SOUTH AND INCREASE AS A STRONGER
FRONT APPROACHES WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THIS FRONT WILL LIKELY
PRODUCE GALE FORCE WINDS WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND HAVE ISSUED A GALE
WATCH.

ANOTHER FRONT IS EXPECTED TO BRUSH BY THE SOUTHERN WATERS FRIDAY.
THIS FRONT WILL APPROACH FROM THE SW AND THE MODELS VARY ON HOW
FAR NORTH IT WILL REACH...AND ON THE TIMING. THEREFORE...THERE IS
LOW CONFIDENCE FOR FRIDAY FORECAST. A LARGE LOW WILL DROP SOUTH
FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA FRIDAY AND SETTLE SW OF THE WATERS THIS
WEEKEND...AND GENERATE OFFSHORE WINDS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THESE
WINDS WILL LIKELY RESULT IN ENHANCED GUSTS NEAR THE COASTAL
GAPS...POSSIBLY NEEDING A WIND HEADLINE. TJ

&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
OR...NONE.
WA...NONE.
PZ...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR WINDS UNTIL 4 PM PST WEDNESDAY FOR 
     COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO CASCADE HEAD OR OUT
     60 NM.

     GALE WARNING FROM 4 PM WEDNESDAY TO 4 AM PST THURSDAY FOR 
     COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO FLORENCE OR OUT 60 NM.

     SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR ROUGH COLUMBIA RIVER BAR FROM 4 PM
     THIS AFTERNOON TO 9 PM PST THIS EVENING.

     SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR ROUGH COLUMBIA RIVER BAR FROM 5 AM TO
     9 AM PST WEDNESDAY.
