NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR 
906 AM PST MON NOV 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL KEEP MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA
DRY THROUGH THIS MORNING...BUT A WARM FRONT IS EXPECTED TO BRING MORE
RAIN WITH RISING SNOW LEVELS TO MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA BY THIS
EVENING. A WARM FRONTAL ZONE STALLS OVER WESTERN WASHINGTON AND
EXTREME NORTHWEST OREGON LATE TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. THE
FRONTAL BAND BEGINS TO SHIFT NORTH TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUES TO
DO SO TUESDAY NIGHT. THE NEXT FRONTAL SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE
THANKSGIVING DAY FOLLOWED BY MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER THROUGH THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

&&

.SHORT TERM...TODAY THROUGH THANKSGIVING DAY...NO APPRECIABLE RADAR
RETURNS SHOWING UP ON KRTX DUAL-POL DOPPLER RADAR AS OF 1630Z. AREAS
OF FOG AND LOW CLOUDS IN THE INTERIOR VALLEYS. LITTLE CHANGE TO THE
FORECAST TODAY. CLOUDS TO INCREASE AND THICKEN THIS AFTEROON
ASSOCIATED WITH A WARM FRONT. BEST ISENTROPIC LIFT LATE TODAY APPEARS
TO BE OVER SW WA AND HAVE UPPED POPS THERE. A WARM FRONTAL BAROCLINC
ZONE AIDED BY A STRONG JET DEVELOPS OVER WRN WA AND EXTREME NW OREGON
TONIGHT. LATEST PRECIPITABLE WATER ESTIMATES INDICATE 1 TO 1.25
INCHES WITH THIS FEATURE. HEAVIEST QPF TONIGHT WILL BE CENTERED ON
THE SW WA FOOTHILLS AND CASCADES. HAVE NUDGED THE 06Z-12Z QPF NUMBERS
UP A BIT MORE FROM THE PREVIOUS SHIFT...UP TO NEARLY 2/3 OF AN INCH
IN THE 6-HOUR PERIOD WHICH MAY NOT BE ENOUGH. GFS CONTINUES TO BE THE
MOST ROBUST WITH QPF...INDICATING 1 TO 1.25 INCHES IN THE SW WA
CASCADES AND FOOTHILLS IN THE 06Z-12Z PERIOD AND OVER 2 INCHES IN THE
12Z-18Z PERIOD. THESE VALUES ARE WELL ABOVE THOSE OF THE NAM AND
ECMWF. THE GFS DOES HAVE UPWARDS OF 40 KT WLY 850 MB FLOW INTO THE S
WA CASCADES WHICH WOULD GENERATE IMPRESSIVE OROGRAPHIC ENHANCEMENT.
WILL NEED TO LOOK AT THIS TIME PERIOD IN MORE DETAIL FOR THE
AFTERNOON FORECAST. 

SNOW LEVELS RISE TO ABOVE 8000 FEET BY TONIGHT AND REMAIN HIGH
THROUGH THE SHORT TERM. MODELS GRADUALLY FORCE THE BAROCLINIC ZONE
NORTHWARD LATE TUE AND TUE NIGHT. SW WA AND THE EXTREME NRN OREGON
ZONES MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY DRY WED...BUT AREAS GENERALLY SOUTH OF A
KTMK-KSLE LINE SHOULD BE DRY. 850 MB TEMPS RISE TO NEAR 10C WED...BUT
VALLEY INVERSIONS WILL TEMPER THE WARMING IN THOSE AREAS. 
MODELS ARE COMING IN BETTER AGREEMENT WITH THE PACIFIC FRONTAL SYSTEM
EXPECTED FOR EARLY THANKSGIVING DAY. LOOKS LIKE RAIN WILL REACH THE
COAST BY MIDNIGHT WEDNESDAY...PUSHING INLAND THROUGH NOON
THANKSGIVING DAY. EXPECT THE FRONT TO PUSH THROUGH MIDDAY
THURSDAY...WITH RAIN LIKELY ACROSS THE ENTIRE AREA. WEISHAAR

.LONG TERM...NO CHANGES. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS...THURSDAY NIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY..LINGERING SHOWERS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE REMAINDER
OF THANKSGIVING DAY AS A PACIFIC FRONTAL SYSTEM DRIFTS SOUTHEAST
ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA. A SECOND DISTURBANCE WILL QUICKLY TAKE THE
DEPARTING FRONTS PLACE EARLY FRIDAY MORNING...AS THE MAIN UPPER LEVEL
TROUGH DIGS FURTHER INTO CANADA. MODELS ARE HINTING ANOTHER COLD AIR
MASS WILL SET UP OVER EASTERN OREGON SATURDAY...WITH HIGH PRESSURE
DEVELOPING EAST OF THE CASCADES
AND LOW PRESSURE SETTING UP JUST OFF THE OREGON/CALIFORNIA COAST.
OFFSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP...BRINGING BREEZY EAST WINDS THROUGH THE
COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE FOR NEXT WEEKEND. /27

&&

.AVIATION...CIGS AND VISIBILITY HAVE IMPROVED TO VFR SOUTH OF
SALEM THIS MORNING. THE FLIGHT CONDITIONS FOR THE INTERIOR VALLEYS
NORTH OF SALEM SHOULD IMPROVE THE NEXT FEW HOURS...ALTHOUGH THERE
WILL BE SPOTTY AREAS OF FOG AND IFR CONDITIONS THROUGH THE MORNING.
ESPECIALLY WHERE THE WINDS ARE CALM LIKE KHIO...KVUO...AND KMMV.
AN APPROACHING FRONT WILL BRING MVFR CIGS TO THE COAST AROUND
NOON...ALTHOUGH THE NORTH COAST WILL CONTINUE MVFR CIGS THROUGH
THIS MORNING. MVFR CIGS WILL PUSH INLAND THIS AFTERNOON WITH
PERIODIC REDUCTION IN VISIBILITIES WITH LIGHT RAIN. MVFR CIGS AND
RAIN WILL PERSIST THROUGH TONIGHT AD INTO TUE MORNING.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...VFR CONDITIONS THIS MORNING BECOMING A
FRONT LOWERS CONDITIONS TO MVFR AFTER 00Z. MVFR CONDITIONS WILL
PERSIST THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING.

&&

.MARINE...SOUTH WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS MORNING AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING FRONT WITH GUSTS TO AROUND 25 KT AROUND NOON. THE
FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS THE WATERS IN THE AFTERNOON AND THERE MAY
BE A BRIEF PERIOD OF LOCALIZED GUSTS AROUND 35 KT WITH THE FRONT
PASSAGE...MAINLY WITHIN 20 NM BETWEEN 3 AND 7 PM. THE WINDS WILL
EASE BELOW 25 KT AND VEER TO THE SW TONIGHT. SW WINDS WILL
INCREASE NORTH OF CASCADE HEAD OVERNIGHT TONIGHT INTO TUESDAY
MORNING...WITH GUSTS POSSIBLY UP TO 25 KT. THESE WINDS ARE DUE TO
A COLD FRONT THAT WILL STALL NORTH OF THE WATERS. ANOTHER FRONT
MAY GENERATE SOUTHERLY GALES WED OR WED NIGHT.

A WEST SWELL WITH WAVE PERIODS AROUND 14 SECONDS WILL SUBSIDE THIS
AFTERNOON AS WIND WAVES INCREASE IN HEIGHT. THIS WILL KEEP THE
COMBINED SEAS AROUND 10 FEET THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON. SEAS AT OR
ABOVE 10 FT MAY HOLD ON NORTH OF CASCADE HEAD INTO WED MORNING DUE
TO THE LOCALIZED STRONGER WINDS EXPECTED TUESDAY NIGHT. THE SEAS
WILL GRADUALLY SUBSIDE WEDNESDAY...BEFORE BUILDING WITH THE NEXT
FRONT WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY. TJ

&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

     COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO FLORENCE OR OUT 60 NM.
