NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
243 PM PST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis...high pressure over region maintaining dry and mild air mass 
today. A couple of weak fronts will bring a chance for light rain 
along the coast and Coast Range Wednesday morning then inland north 
of Portland Wednesday afternoon and evening. A warm front will 
continue light rain Wednesday night and Thursday. A cold front will 
spread more widespread rain across the region Friday. Cooler 
unsettled weather is expected for the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...a broad upper level low over the NE Pacific has moved 
closer to the West Coast today as the upper ridge axis (which has 
remained steady over the Pacific northwest the past few days) has moved east 
over Idaho. Satellite imagery shows several lows embedded with in the 
upper trough offshore. These lows will bring a series of weak fronts 
across the region Wednesday through Sunday. 


Visible imagery shows the first front weakening offshore this 
afternoon. High clouds ahead of this front are streaming across northwest 
Oregon and SW Washington. Inland valleys will likely see some fog 
overnight tonight...but the cloudy skies should limit the extent of 
dense fog. East winds are weakening through The Gorge this 
evening...but will not likely weaken enough for the north Willamette 
Valley to be vulnerable to fog development. Fog or stratus is more 
likely for the central and southern valley...and along the coast. 


A shortwave currently offshore of the California/or border will move towards 
the Oregon coast this evening and produce light rain over the coastal 
waters late tonight....and the coast and Coast Range early Wednesday 
morning. Another weak front will continue light rain for the coast 
Wednesday afternoon and inland...mainly north of Portland Wednesday 
afternoon and evening. Rainfall amounts will be generally less than 
0.15 inch Wednesday through Wednesday night...and most inland areas will not see 
any rain. Snow levels will remain above 9000 feet. 


A warm front will brush over the region Thursday and likely bring 
another round of high pop low quantitative precipitation forecast rain Thursday before a cold or 
occluded front brings more noticeable and more widespread rain 
Thursday night through Friday. Snow levels will remain above 8000 
feet. The coast...Coast Range...and Cascades can expect 0.75 to 1 
inch of rain between Thursday morning and Friday night with 0.25 to 
0.5 inch elsewhere. 


Temperatures will remain mild through Friday with daytime highs in 
the upper 50s to low 60s and nighttime lows in the 40s. Tj 


Long term...an upper trough moves over the Pacific northwest Friday night 
through for cooler weather over the weekend. Snow levels will lower 
to near or below the Cascade passes Saturday morning. A frontal 
system will impact the area this weekend for rain and Cascade snow 
through Sunday. An upper ridge will move over the area Sunday night 
and Monday with a chance for drier weather for Monday. Tj 


&& 


Aviation...VFR across the area this afternoon. Offshore flow is 
diminishing along the coast with the approaching frontal boundary. 
This could allow low clouds to develop along the coast 
tonight...but this likely depends on winds developing a weak 
onshore component with the best chance being at konp as opposed to 
kast. Right now thinking there will be enough southeasterly flow 
to keep coastal terminals VFR overnight until lower clouds start 
to move in ahead of the front late Wednesday morning. 
Inland...expect VFR conditions to continue this afternoon. East 
winds from The Gorge will be decreasing this evening...but will 
still keep kttd and probably kpdx VFR through Wednesday morning. 
Elsewhere...high level clouds will keep any fog that develops 
fairly patchy...with the best chance of more widespread fog down 
near keug where low-level moisture is higher. Any fog that 
develops should start to clear out as southerly winds pick up middle- 
morning Wednesday. 


Kpdx and approaches...conditions should stay VFR for the next 24 
hours...though there is a slight chance of patchy fog developing 
along the Columbia River and drifting into the terminal after 12z 
Wednesday. East winds decreasing out of the west end of The Gorge. 
-McCoy 


&& 


Marine...winds are veering to southerly over the outer waters 
this afternoon and gusting to 10 to 20 knots. Winds for the most 
part should stay under 20 knots this afternoon and evening...except 
for a few local gusts to 25 knots. Winds should weaken a bit 
overnight tonight before increasing Wednesday morning as a weak 
frontal boundary approaches. Ahead of the front...expect solid 
Small Craft Advisory winds out of the south...dropping off behind 
the front Wednesday night. Seas...which are currently around 7 to 
8 feet...could increase to 9 feet with this system Wednesday 
afternoon. 


Another system on Thursday will bring Small Craft Advisory winds 
and seas up into the lower teens. A third system follows late 
Saturday into Sunday which could bring another round of Small 
Craft Advisory winds and keeps seas above 10 feet through at least 
early Sunday. 
-McCoy
