NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
849 PM PDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Synopsis...strong high pressure aloft is the main feature over 
Oregon and southwest Washington for the next few days...with 
northwest flow aloft and weak troughing north in Canada and an upper 
low off the central California coast. Thunderstorm moisture will 
mostly stay south of our area...but may begin brushing the Lane 
County Cascades as early as Sunday. A slight lowering of 500 mb 
heights from the northwest flow in Canada may increase the marine 
layer along the coast early in the weekend and ease temperatures a couple of 
degrees inland...but Sunday looks about as warm again as today 
inland. Only gradual changes expected next week...perhaps a few more 
thunderstorms working their way north along the Cascades and temperatures 
inland dropping a couple of degrees but continuing well above normal. 
&& 


Short term...northwest to southeast oriented ridge axis expected to remain just 
to the south of the forecast area through the weekend. Models 
continue to show some weakening of the ridge over the region 
resulting in the development of a col. Overall this results in a 
continued rather stagnant weather pattern. 


Low clouds this evening are pretty sparse over the coastal waters and 
suspect similar coverage late tonight and Friday morning near the 
coast when compared to this morning. Have slowed down the arrival of 
the low clouds and local fog along the coast in the forecast for 
tonight. Also bumped temperatures for Friday up a bit above the previous 
forecast...but a couple of degrees down from today. 


The low level onshore flow is expected to strengthen a bit by Sat as 
upper heights coming down a little...aided in part by a shortwave 
rotating around the west Canada upper low...and this suggests 
daytime highs to come down a few degrees mainly Saturday. Model 800 mb 
temperatures however remain in the 20 to 22 degree c range...so expect high 
temperatures likely to remain above 90 through Saturday in the inland 
valleys. As the southwest Canada shortwave moves on...upper heights 
rebound and 800 mb temperatures return on Sunday to near the values from today. 
With the quick return to very hot weather Sunday...the day shift 
extended the current heat advisory out through Sunday and will 
continue with that. Any slight lowering of temperatures by Saturday will 
still result in temperatures above 90 inland. Marine clouds through this 
period will remain rather limited. With the strengthened onshore 
flow expect to see some more clouds along the coast and possibly 
into the lower Columbia by Saturday morning...then less clouds again 
Sunday morning. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Sunday night through Thursday...the extended period begins with high 
amplitude 500 mb Rex block over the eastern Pacific and or/Washington in weak 
trough or col separating southwestern U.S. Ridge and eastern Pacific/Gulf of Alaska 
ridge. Despite the weak troughiness...air mass remains warm with above 
average heights and northerly low level flow. Little change occurs in 
overall pattern into Tuesday. By Wednesday...block begins to break 
down with ridging to the north and Pacific cutoff making slow eastward 
progress toward central California cstln. Deterministic models and gefs members 
in good agreement through Tuesday...with differences thereafter 
mainly in amplitude of ridging over or/WA/wrn Canada and position of 
eastern Pacific cutoff. Despite the increasing uncertainty middle 
week...warm temperatures nearly certain /10-12 degree above normal/ but 
influence of eastern Pacific cutoff provides a chance of inland/mountain 
thunderstorms Tuesday-Thursday. Bright 
&& 


Aviation...widespread VFR next 24 hours at inland taf sites under 
stable westerly flow aloft. VFR along the coast this evening will 
give way to IFR stratus again tonight...but later than last 
night...most likely filling in from south to north after 06z-08z Friday. 
Should still see some marine stratus inland up the Columbia River 
tonight and could bring periods of MVFR ceilings to kkls and possibly 
kspb. The stratus does not look like it will reach the Portland metropolitan 
terminals. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR will persist for the next 24 hours. /27 
&& 


Marine...high pressure over the NE Pacific and thermal low pressure inland will 
continue to produce gusty northerly winds into the weekend. The 
strongest winds are expected to continue over the outer waters so 
decided to extend the Small Craft Advisory till Sat morning. Advisory 
level winds over the inner waters will continue though late this 
evening before falling below 20 knots. Thermal low pressure will move 
offshore this weekend with winds across all waters remaining below 20 
knots into next week. 


Expect periods of steep and choppy seas over the outer waters to 
continue into this weekend with combined seas of 7 to 8 feet and a 
dominate period around 8 seconds. As such...decided to extend the 
Small Craft Advisory till Sat morning for square seas. Strong winds 
off of Vancouver Island will produce a building northwest swell this weekend 
that could push seas above 10 feet. Seas will subside early next week 
to around 4 to 5 feet.
