NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
950 am PST sun Feb 14 2016 


Synopsis...a stalled frontal zone remains in place over southwest 
Washington and northwest Oregon this morning...bringing steady rain 
to the coast and higher terrain with occasional light rain for the 
inland valleys. The frontal zone will lift slowly north into 
Washington tonight and Monday...with rain decreasing from the south 
as an upper ridge builds some along the West Coast. Weak shortwaves 
travelling along the northern periphery of the upper ridge will keep 
the threat of rain at times Portland northward through Tuesday... 
with drier weather to the south. The cold front with the next system 
will approach the Pacific northwest Wednesday then move through the 
forecast area Wednesday night into Thursday with lowering snow levels 
in the Cascades Thursday. Another Pacific front is expected Friday. 


&& 


Morning update...National Weather Service Doppler radar shows two persistent areas of 
rain in our forecast area this morning...one along the coast/Coast 
Range and another along the Cascades and foothills. Rain continues to 
fall at a steady clip of 0.10-0.20 inch/hour in these areas...with 
totals generally in the 1-3 inch range thus far and the heaviest 
accumulations to the north. A marked rain shadow effect is apparent 
over the Willamette Valley...where only occasional and mainly light 
rain is expected today. A weak shortwave moving onshore may briefly 
enhance rainfall through midday...then rain is expected to decrease 
in general this afternoon behind this shortwave. 


While there have been minor issues such as roadway ponding and even a 
minor odot-reported landslide along canyon Rd in Beaverton... overall 
hydrologic problems have been minimal. Moderate rises have been 
reported on area rivers but all remain well below bankfull. 


Snow levels rose to around 6000 feet by midnight last night as warm air 
moved in aloft...then rose further to 7000-8000 feet this morning per 
the esrl Troutdale profiler. After a general 4-8 inches of snow above 
4000 feet...additional snow should be limited to the highest Volcano 
peaks today. Therefore we allowed the Winter Weather Advisory for snow to 
expire at 9 am this morning. 


Main adjustments to the forecast were to account for the Willamette 
Valley rainshadow by cutting back a little on pops/qpf. Otherwise the 
forecast looks to be in good shape and few changes were made. Weagle 


Short term...a warm front moved into southwest Washington and 
northwest Oregon Saturday which will linger over the area today. The 
first and strongest wave moved through Saturday evening with a period 
of rather heavy rain over the area as precipitable water values of 
around 1.2 inches were fed into the area by 50 knots 850 mb winds. 


This wave moved eastward and the rain let up for a while overnight 
Saturday night...but now the next wave has begun moving into the 
area early this morning and will continue over our forecast area 
this morning. Amounts will be good...but less than those Saturday 
evening as 850 mb winds will be between 30 and 40 knots this morning. 


Temperatures in the South Washington and far north Oregon Cascades are 
still supporting snow down to around 4500 or 5000 feet this 
morning...and will extend the Snow Advisory until 9 am. Expect snow 
levels to rise well Above All the passes by then. 


500 mb heights will start to build some later today and tonight... 
beginning to push the warm front slowly north of our area with rain 
decreasing from the south tonight and Monday. On Monday...the main 
chance of any rain will be across our northern zones...mainly 
Portland northward or so. With the warm front mainly north of our 
area Monday...we will be in the warm sector and afternoon temperatures in 
the valleys have a chance of reaching the upper 50s to middle 60s again. 


The warm front will reverse course and begin to sag south into the 
north part of our forecast late Monday night and on Tuesday. 
However...the models have had trouble with the details of this idea. 
The current crop of models are suggesting the rain could spread south 
to around a Pacific City to Wilsonville line or so before stalling. 
The models are then indicating the front will play yo yo and lift 
back north as a warm front as it weakens late Tuesday and Tuesday 
night for more drying from south to north. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Tuesday night through Friday...the upper ridge responsible for the 
drying trend Monday/Tuesday will shift east midweek... with models showing 
good consensus in bringing a well defined upper trough into the Pacific 
northwest and possibly California Wednesday night/Thu. This will cause rain 
chances to increase later Wednesday...with cool and showery weather 
lingering into Thursday. Air mass will start out rather warm with snow 
levels well above the Cascade passes Wednesday. Colder air will move in 
with the upper trough...with snow levels lowering to 3000 to 3500 
feet in showers by Thursday. Expect temperatures to drop back to near normal 
late week as a result of the upper trough...possibly even a little 
below normal. Models show decent agreement that this upper trough 
will be followed by a more progressive frontal system for more rain 
and Cascade snow Friday/Friday night. Weagle 


&& 


Aviation...widespread IFR/MVFR across the area this morning. Do 
not expect much change in overall flight conditions through at 
least early afternoon. Guidance suggests improvement to MVFR/low- 
end VFR middle to late afternoon in the interior valleys. Coastal 
areas likely to remain IFR through the afternoon...with some 
improvement after 00z...especially the central coast. Strong westerly 
850 mb flow will maintain IFR or worse conditions for the higher 
terrain through this evening. 


Kpdx and approaches...low-end MVFR ceilings around 1500 feet this 
morning...although there appears to be another layer between 4000 
and 5000 feet. Expect little change in conditions through early 
afternoon then a gradual improvement to high-end MVFR or even 
low-end VFR by early evening. Weishaar 


&& 


Marine...warm front draped over the waters producing Small Craft 
Advisory wind speeds across much of the area this morning. 14z RUC 
a little weaker on wind speeds compared to the latest 12z NAM. NAM 
and GFS show a slight decrease in boundary layer wind speeds this 
afternoon...but increasing again tonight. Will likely need to 
include pzz250 in the Small Craft Advisory for wind. Will look at 
that closer for the afternoon forecast. May also need to extend 
the advisory for the northern waters through at least Monday evening...if 
not longer. The next significant system arrives Wednesday and Thursday. 
There are considerable uncertainties in the forecast models for the 
second half of the week...but it appears that there will be 
potential for gales at times. 


Seas hovering at or just above 10 feet this morning. Guidance 
suggests little change through tonight. Extended the Small Craft 
Advisory for hazardous seas through 12z Monday. Latest enp run has 
seas increasing to near 15 feet late next week and possibly near 20 
feet next weekend. Want to see a few more runs before going that 
high. Weishaar

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories...

coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Cascade Head or
