 Special Statement  Statement as of 5:45 am PDT on October 22, 2014


... Wet and windy week ahead for southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon...

A strong and wet Pacific storm system will bring periods of heavy
rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon through Thursday
morning. Strong winds have developed along the coastal headlands
and higher terrain of the Coast Range and will continue throughout
the morning.

Gusty south winds are also developing in the inland valleys. Local
gusts of up to 40 mph have already occurred and will continue
through the morning. Many trees still have a fair amount of
leaves on them... which could cause more limbs to break than is
often the case with such winds. As a result... some minor power
outages are possible with the gusty winds.

The frontal system has tapped into sub-tropical moisture which
will enhance rainfall near the front as it slowly moves through
the area today through early Thursday. Rain will be heavy at
times... not just along the coast and in the higher terrain... but
for the inland valleys as well.

Storm total rainfall totals upwards of 2 inches are expected in
the inland valleys by Thursday afternoon. Coastal locations are
expected to receive 2 to 4 inches of rain... and 3 to 6 inches of
rain are forecast for most of the Coast Range and Cascades. One to
two inches of this rain have already fallen across much of
southwest Washington.

Minor urban flooding is possible due to Autumn Leaves clogging
storm drains. Additionally... there is a possibility of minor
flooding on a couple of fast responding small streams and rivers
due to the heavy rain. Burn scar areas from recent wildfires in
the Cascades may also be subject to debris flows or mudslides. All
of this will be monitored closely over the coming days.

After a lull on Thursday... another strong system may affect part
of the area Friday into this weekend. Details on this system are
still quite uncertain... but it appears southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon are in for a fairly extended period of wet and
unsettled Fall weather.

235 PM PDT Tue Oct 21 2014

... Wet and windy week ahead for southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon...

A strong and wet Pacific storm system will bring periods of heavy
rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon tonight through
Thursday morning. Strong winds are also expected along the coastal
headlands and higher terrain of the Coast Range tonight into
Wednesday morning.

South winds are increasing along the coast this afternoon as the
front approaches the Pacific northwest coastal waters. Winds will
be especially strong along the beaches and headlands... where gusts
of 60 to 70 mph are expected at times tonight through early
Wednesday. Coastal communities may see gusts upwards of 50 mph as
the front slowly sags down the coast later tonight into Wednesday
morning.

South winds will also increase later tonight into Wednesday for
the inland valleys and main Metro areas... where gusts of 25 to 35
mph are possible. Many trees still have a fair amount of leaves
on them... which could cause more limbs to break than is often the
case with such winds. As a result... some minor power outages are
possible as the gusty winds develop.

The frontal system has tapped into sub-tropical moisture which
will enhance rainfall near the front as it slowly moves through
the area tonight through early Thursday. Rain will be heavy at
times along the coast and in the higher terrain... and possibly in
the inland valleys as well.

Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches are expected in the inland
valleys by Thursday afternoon. Coastal locations are expected to
receive 2 to 4 inches of rain... and 3 to 6 inches of rain are
forecast for most of the Coast Range and Cascades.

Minor urban flooding is possible due to Autumn Leaves clogging
storm drains... especially Wednesday into Wednesday night when the
heaviest rain is expected. Additionally... there is a possibility
of minor flooding on a couple of fast responding small streams
and rivers due to the heavy rain. Burn scar areas from recent
wildfires in the Cascades may also be subject to debris flows or
mudslides. All of this will be monitored closely over the coming
days.

After a lull on Thursday... another strong system may affect part
of the area Friday into this weekend. Details on this system are
still quite uncertain... but it appears southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon is in for a fairly extended period of wet and
unsettled Fall weather.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
339 AM PDT WED OCT 22 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A STRONG AND SLOW MOVING FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO
DRIFT SOUTHWARD ACROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST TODAY. THIS SYSTEM HAS
ACCESS TO A MODEST ATMOSPHERIC RIVER OF MOISTURE WHICH STRETCHES
ACROSS MUCH OF THE PACIFIC...MEANING OCCASIONALLY HEAVY RAIN FOR
SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THROUGH EARLY THURSDAY. THE
COAST WILL REMAIN VERY WINDY THIS MORNING...WITH BREEZY CONDITIONS
INLAND. WINDS WILL DIE DOWN BEHIND THE FRONT AS IT PUSHES SOUTH OF
THE AREA LATER TODAY. ANOTHER WET AND POTENTIALLY WINDY SYSTEM IS
EXPECTED BY THIS WEEKEND.

&&
 
.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY...A STRONG AND MOIST FRONTAL
SYSTEM CONTINUES TO DOMINATE THE WEATHER ACROSS SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON
AND NORTHWEST OREGON TODAY. ONE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM DEVELOPED ALONG
THE FRONTAL ZONE TUESDAY...MOVING ONSHORE INTO VANCOUVER ISLAND AS
ROUGHLY A 993 MB LOW LATE TUE EVENING. THIS LOW BROUGHT A SURGE OF
WIND TO THE COAST LATE TUE AFTERNOON/EVENING...BUT MOST HEADLAND
LOCATIONS RECEIVED GUSTS 45-55 MPH...BELOW HIGH WIND CRITERIA. SOME
HIGHER AND MORE EXPOSED HEADLAND LOCATIONS LIKE CAPE MEARS HAVE
RECEIVED HIGHER GUSTS...CAPE MEARS TOPPED OUT AT 66 MPH AT 115 AM.
ALSO THE NOS SITE AT GARIBALDI RECENTLY RECORDED A GUST TO 60 MPH. 
EXPECT A COUPLE MORE SURGES OF WIND ALONG THE COAST THIS MORNING AS A
COUPLE WAVES OF LOW PRESSURE TRAVEL NE ALONG THE FRONTAL ZONE. WILL
LEAVE THE HIGH WIND WARNING UP FOR BEACHES AND HEADLANDS THIS
MORNING...BUT IT WILL BE A VERY MARGINAL ONE.

MODELS SEEM TO BE TRENDING WEAKER WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF LOW PRESSURE
IN THE WAVES OF ENERGY TRAVELLING NE ALONG THE FRONT. THIS REDUCES
THE WIND THREAT INLAND SOMEWHAT...PERHAPS SOME 30-35 MPH GUSTS FOR
THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY TODAY SOUTH OF THE FRONT. ONCE THE FRONT MOVES
THROUGH...WINDS WILL DIE OFF FAIRLY QUICKLY...BOTH ALONG THE COAST
AND INLAND.

WHILE WINDS MAY BE A LITTLE LIGHTER THAN PREVIOUSLY EXPECTED...THIS
IS LOOKING TO BE A VERY GOOD SETUP FOR A HEAVY RAIN EVENT NOT JUST
ALONG THE COAST AND IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN...BUT THE INLAND VALLEYS AS
WELL. THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND PORTLAND/VANCOUVER METRO AREA TENDS
TO SEE THEIR MOST WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAIN EVENTS IN THESE WAVY FRONT
SITUATIONS...ESPECIALLY WHEN THE WAVES OF LOW PRESSURE TRAVELLING
ALONG THE FRONT ARE RELATIVELY WEAK BUT CARRY A LOT OF MOISTURE. THE
MOISTURE IS CERTAINLY THERE...THERE IS STILL A MODEST ATMOSPHERIC
RIVER EXTENDING ALONG THE FRONTAL ZONE BACK TO THE DATELINE.
PRECIPIATABLE WATER VALUES UPWARDS OF 1.25 INCH ARE STILL EVIDENT
WITHIN THIS ATMOSPHERIC RIVER. 

THEREFORE...WE CONTINUE TO EXPECT TOTAL RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS OF 1-2
INCHES IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY...2-4 INCHES ALONG THE COAST AND
HIGHER TERRAIN...AND 3-5 INCHES FOR MOST OF OUR HIGHER TERRAIN BY
THURSDAY. IT APPEARS THE GRAYS RIVER MAY BE SPARED FLOODING...DUE TO
STARTING OFF WITH FAIRLY LOW FLOW. CHPS MODEL SIMULATIONS...EVEN WITH
WORST-CASE SCENARIO RAINFALL OF 4-6 INCHES IN THE WILLAPA
HILLS...ONLY BRING THE RIVER UP TO AROUND 10-11 FT...FLOOD STAGE IS
12 FT. THEREFORE THIS SHOULD MAINLY BE AN URBAN AND SMALL STREAM
FLOOD THREAT...EXACERBATED BY FALLEN LEAVES CLOGGING STORM DRAINS.

THURSDAY THE MAIN FRONTAL ZONE WILL SHIFT SOUTH OF OUR FORECAST
AREA...THOUGH SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE. RAINFALL THURSDAY WILL BE
CONSIDERABLY LESS THAN WEDNESDAY. COULD BE A COUPLE SUNBREAKS BETWEEN
SHOWERS...SO INCREASED MAX TEMPS SLIGHTLY. 

THERE IS ANOTHER STRONG AND WET STORM EXPECTED TO LIFT NORTH ALONG
THE COAST AND IMPACT NORTHWEST OREGON AND SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON
SIGNIFICANTLY ON FRIDAY INTO THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEKEND. WHILE
THERE ARE SOME DIFFERENCES AMONGST THE MODELS...THIS SYSTEM IS
LOOKING QUITE WET AGAIN...WITH A SURFACE LOW THAT WILL PROBABLY BRING
MORE WIDESPREAD HIGH WINDS TO THE COAST AND A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF
TRACKS SUGGEST POSSIBLY VERY WINDY CONDITIONS INLAND AS WELL. AUTUMN
IS KICKING INTO FULL GEAR WITH A BANG.WEAGLE/TOLLESON

.LONG TERM...FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY...FORECAST MODELS CONTINUE 
TO KEEP THE REGION IN AN ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN THROUGH THE WEEKEND 
AS FRONTAL SYSTEMS MOVE THROUGH EVERY OTHER. WHILE SOME SUBTLE 
DIFFERENCES REMAIN...MODELS REMAIN IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT THAT 
ANOTHER POTENT LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP OFFSHORE BRINGING A 
ROUND OF GUSTY WINDS AND POTENTIAL HEAVY RAINFALL FOR LATE FRIDAY 
INTO SATURDAY. SHOWERS LIKELY LINGER FOR SUNDAY BEFORE ANOTHER 
FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHES ON MONDAY INTO TUESDAY FOR MORE RAINFALL. 
WHILE SOME QUESTION REMAINS AS TO HOW THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS WILL 
EVOLVE AND TRACK...AND JUST HOW STRONG THEY WILL BE...IT SEEMS 
LIKELY THAT WE WILL REMAIN IN AN ACTIVE PATTERN WITH WET WEATHER AT 
TIMES THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.CULLEN

&&

.AVIATION...WARM FRONT HAS MOVED JUST ONSHORE WITH COLD FRONT
APPROACHING THE COAST THIS MORNING. VFR SHOULD PREVAIL INLAND
THROUGH 15Z-20Z WED WITH INCREASING CHANCES FOR MVFR AS HEAVIER
RAIN MOVES IN WITH THE FRONT. MVFR WILL PROBABLY BE WIDESPREAD
AFTER 00Z THU. FOR COASTAL AREAS...LOW MVFR CIGS ARE BEGINNING TO
TAKE HOLD BEHIND THE WARM FRONT AND MAY SEE SOME IFR CIGS BEFORE
SUNRISE . STRONG LOW LEVEL WINDS WILL ALSO BE A CONCERN WITH
ASTORIA ALREADY GUSTING TO ALMOST 40 KT AND SIMILAR GUSTS EXPECTED
ELSEWHERE ALONG THE COAST SPREADING FROM NORTH TO SOUTH THROUGH
THE EARLY MORNING HOURS.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...VFR PREVAILING THROUGH 18Z WED AND PERHAPS
UNTIL 00Z THU. BUT AFTER 18Z WED GUIDANCE INDICATING INCREASING
CHANCES FOR MVFR CONDITIONS TO DEVELOP AS THE COLD FRONT NEARS
THEN MOVES THROUGH IN THE EVENING. SOUTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
SWITCH TO SOUTHERLY WINDS AND INCREASE OVERNIGHT. LOW LEVEL
WIND SHEAR NOT A HIGH CONCERN AT THIS POINT BUT SHOULD THE EAST
TO SOUTHEAST SURFACE WIND HOLD...AREAS TOWARD THE COLUMBIA RIVER
GORGE COULD EXPERIENCE LLWS WED MORNING. BOWEN/MH

&&

.MARINE...A WARM FRONT HAS WORKED ITS WAY JUST ONSHORE WITH
SOUTHWEST WINDS AT BUOYS 29 AND 89 INDICATING THE COLD FRONT ISN'T
TOO FAR BEHIND. BUOY 29 HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY GUSTING TO GALE
FORCE WITH A COUPLE OF GUSTS TO STORM STRENGTH BUT NOT ENOUGH TO
QUALIFY AS A STORM EVENT. EXPECT WINDS ACROSS THE CENTRAL OREGON
WATERS TO INCREASE SIMILARLY AS THE COLD FRONT APPROACHES THROUGH
THIS MORNING. WINDS WILL BEGIN TO DIMINISH BY MID TO LATE MORNING
AFTER THE COLD FRONT PUSHES ONSHORE.

SEAS ARE CURRENTLY AROUND 17 FT AND BUOY 29 HAS RECORDED AS HIGH
AS 20 FT WITHIN THE PAST FEW HOURS. SEAS OVER THE CENTRAL OREGON
WATERS MAY APPROACH 20 FT WITH PEAK WINDS. SEAS WILL GRADUALLY
DECREASE DURING THE DAY WEDNESDAY AS THE WINDS DIE DOWN...BUT
EXPECT THEY WILL REMAIN IN THE MID TEENS THROUGH MUCH OF THE DAY.

THERE WILL BE A BIT OF A BREAK THU NIGHT AND FRIDAY AS WEAKER
TROUGHS MOVE THROUGH WITH MODELS RUNNING A BIT SLOWER IN THE
RECENT RUNS. ANOTHER POTENTIALLY STRONG FRONT IS FORECAST FOR
LATER FRI INTO SAT. THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF UNCERTAINTY IN THIS
SYSTEM AT THIS TIME BUT HAVE LEANED TOWARD THE EURO WITH A BIT OF
GFS BLENDED IN. IT APPEARS THAT ANOTHER SOLID GALE WITH SEAS INTO
THE MID TO UPPER TEENS IS A STRONG POSSIBILITY WITH THE SYSTEM.
