NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
1000 am PST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front across Washington this morning will slowly lift 
further north through tonight...leaving the forecast area in a mild air 
mass. A weak cold front will move east across the area tonight bringing 
back chances for rain. A stronger cold front dropping down from the 
north will move through Friday night bringing colder weather for the 
weekend...with winds turning offshore sun. Sun night and Monday a 
system coming up from the S will attempt to spread some 
precipitation up over the cold air mass left over from the weekend. 
&& 


Short term...radar and surface observations suggest most of the 
rain associated with the warm front across Washington this morning was north of 
the forecast area...so will leave just a low pop in for today north of 
the Columbia River while the rest of the forecast area remains dry 
and in the warm sector today. With the region remaining in the warm 
sector today...expect persistence type temperatures today to be the best 
bet...meaning some more temperature records may again be in jeopardy 
today. 


Remainder of short term discussion unchanged...the associated cold 
front approaching 130w early this morning will reach the coast and 
begin spreading onshore tonight for more rain and some brisk coastal 
winds...but likely staying below high wind criteria. The front will 
continue moving through the forecast area on Thanksgiving for more 
rain and locally breezy conditions. Snow levels will remain quite 
high in the Cascades. 


The frontal boundary will stall over the area Thursday night beneath 
confluent flow aloft as the southern branch of the jet merges with an 
increasing northern branch of the jet. This will keep some rain going 
over much of the area Thursday night. 


A secondary colder cold front will begin sagging into our area from 
the north on Friday...merging with the stalled southern cold 
front...and keeping the rain going...perhaps a little heavier than on 
previous days. Snow levels in the South Washington Cascades may begin 
to fall late in the day as this secondary cold front moves south but 
snow levels will generally stay above the pass levels through Friday. 
Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Friday night through Tuesday...complicated pattern evolves Friday 
night and Sat with the colder air continuing to slide S through Washington 
and into northern Oregon. 12z GFS more in line with the previous couple of 
European model (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 European model (ecmwf) is 
just a touch warmer. Fortunately...the drier northerly flow will shunt 
precipitation further to the S. A closed low well of the northern California coast Sat 
starts to drift NE Sat night and sun. There is the potential for a 
deformation band over northern California to drift northward late sun into Monday. This 
could be problematic as the moisture overruns the cold 
air....especially for the Columbia Gorge and Upper Hood River Valley. 
Weishaar 
&& 


Aviation...generally VFR across the area as of 17z...except for 
areas of IFR along the north Oregon and S Washington coast. Expect VFR to 
prevail through at least the evening hours. Ceilings lower along the 
coast after 03z Thursday as a cold front approaches. Look for 
conditions along the coast to fall into MVFR between 04z to 06z 
with precipitation increasing overnight. VFR should hold over the inland 
areas through at least 12z Thursday...then MVFR conditions 
increase...with higher terrain becoming obscured. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions to prevail through at least 
12z Thursday. Rain develops over western approaches around 10z then spreads 
east thereafter...with localized MVFR developing after 13z. Weishaar 


&& 


Marine...wind speeds holding at 15 to 20 knots this morning with 
gusts up to 25 knots. Speeds ramp up this afternoon ahead of an 
approaching frontal system. Should see gale force wind gusts over 
much of the waters by late this afternoon...but more so in the 02z 
to 08z time frame. Although not a classic case...some model 
guidance is suggesting the potential for some coastal jet 
enhancement within 20 nm. Could see some gusts up to 40 knots if this 
occurs. High-end Small Craft Advisory speeds persist Thursday morning. 
Latest model runs show 20-25 knots northwest wind developing over the north 
waters Friday evening then spreading further S overnight. Wind turns 
offshore over the weekend with potential gusts 20 to 30 knots near 
gaps in the coastal terrain. 


Seas expected to build to 10 feet later today then stay above 10 feet 
through at least Friday night. Weishaar 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 4 PM PST this afternoon for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 60 nm. 


Gale Warning from 4 PM this afternoon to 4 am PST Thursday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar from 4 PM this 
afternoon to 10 am PST Thursday.
