225 AM PDT SAT APR 19 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A  COLD FRONT OFF THE COAST EARLY THIS MORNING WILL MOVE 
INLAND TODAY...CROSSING THE CASCADES BY LATE TODAY. SHOWERS WILL 
DECREASE TONIGHT AS THE PARENT UPPER TROUGH MOVES EAST AS WELL. WEAK 
HIGHER PRESSURE WILL MOVE IN SUNDAY FOR GENERALLY DRY WEATHER ON 
EASTER...EXCEPT SOME MOISTURE MAY BRUSH THE FAR NORTH COAST ZONES. 
THE NEXT FRONT WILL BECOME NORTH SOUTH ORIENTED SUNDAY NIGHT AND 
STALL OFF THE COAST AS ENERGY DIGS TOWARD CALIFORNIA FOR MORE MOSTLY 
DRY WEATHER...BUT THEN MOVE ONSHORE MONDAY AND TUESDAY FOR MORE RAIN 
OR SHOWERS. THE REMAINDER OF NEXT WEEK LOOKS UNSETTLED AS MORE 
PRECIPITATION MOVES IN AT TIMES.

EARLY SAT MORNING...MAKING STEADY PROGRESS EASTWARD AND ON TRACK TO 
REACH THE COAST LATE THIS MORNING. CLOUDS MAINLY MID AND LOW LEVEL 
WITH THE FRONT...MATCHING THE MODEL CROSS SECTIONS SUGGESTING 
MOISTURE GENERALLY BELOW 700MB. WHILE MOISTURE IS ON THE SHALLOW 
SIDE...THE FRONT ITSELF APPEARS MODERATELY STRONG AND IS SYNCHED 
WITH A SHORTWAVE ALOFT PROVIDING WELL TIMED LIFT. WILL KEEP POPS 
HIGH TODAY FOR THE FRONTAL PASSAGE ALTHOUGH THE DURATION MAY BE ON 
THE SHORT SIDE. SATELLITE SHOWS SHOWERS ARE ACTIVE BEHIND THE 
FRONT...AND INITIALLY LATE TODAY INTO THIS EVENING LOW LEVEL FLOW IS 
ONSHORE FAVORING SHOWERS ESP FOR THE OROGRAPHICALLY FAVORED CASCADES 
AND COAST RANGE. 

AS A SURFACE HIGH BUILDS IN LATE TONIGHT AND SUN...AND AN INITIALLY 
FLAT UPPER RIDGE MOVES ACROSS WILL SEE DRY WEATHER RETURN ALONG WITH 
WARMER TEMPS AGAIN FOR SUN. THE PATTERN AMPLIFIES SUN NIGHT AND MON 
AS THE NEXT TROUGH IN A PROGRESSIVE PATTERN DIGS OFFSHORE AND THE 
DOWNSTREAM RIDGE OVER THE INTERIOR WESTERN STATES BUILDS. AS THE 
FLOW OVER THE PACIFIC NW BACKS TO THE SSW MID AND UPPER LEVEL 
MOISTURE EXPECTED TO INCREASE. MODEL SOUNDINGS SUGGEST AIR MASS AT 
BEST MARGINALLY UNSTABLE...AND WITH DYNAMICS DIGGING THE TROUGH S 
PREFER TO LIMIT POPS OUT AHEAD OF THE FRONT MON TO CHANCE CATEGORY 
INLAND...BUT HIGHER ALONG THE COAST AS A FRONT AND SHORTWAVE 
APPROACH LATE IN THE DAY. SW ONSHORE FLOW COUPLED WITH FALLING

NIGHT. THE COLD FRONT FINALLY GETS A SHOVE AS THE UPPER JET NOSES
INTO THE AREA. PRECIPITATION IS MAINLY TIED TO THE FRONT...BUT WITH
THE MARGINALLY UNSTABLE SW FLOW...MODELS SHOW THAT THERE COULD BE
SOME SHOWERS IN THE AFTERNOON MAINLY FOR THE CASCADES...AS MID LEVEL
LAPSE RATES HOVER IN THE 6 TO 7 DEG/KM RANGE. INSTABILITY PARAMETERS
ARE NOT THAT IMPRESSIVE...SO THUNDER POTENTIAL LOOKS LOW AT THIS
TIME.

LOOKS LIKE TUE AND WED WILL BE CHARACTERIZED BY COOL AND DAMP
CONDITIONS AS THE DEEP UPPER LOW MIGRATES ACROSS THE PAC NW AND INTO
THE NRN ROCKIES. AFTER THE FIRST LARGE UPPER TROUGH CLEARS LATE
TUESDAY NIGHT AND MAYBE A BREAK IN SHOWERS WEDNESDAY...ANOTHER DEEP
UPPER LOW WILL SPREAD SEVERAL WAVES OF SHOWER ACTIVITY THROUGH THE
