NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland 
928 PM PDT Monday Mar 30 2015 


Synopsis...a ridge over the Pacific northwest Monday will give way to a cool 
and unstable trough of low pressure moving across the region tonight 
through Wednesday. A ridge of high pressure will move across Thursday for a brief 
break between systems...then another trough of low pressure is expected 
to drop down from the Gulf of Alaska at the end of the week. 


&& 


Update...as of 9 PM National Weather Service network radar shows precipitation with a cold front 
just about to reach the coast. There are some convective 
elements - but no lightning - embedded in the front that were seen in 
the late afternoon visible satellite imagery. Forecast looks on 
track with rain moving ashore and into the Interior Valley zones 
after midnight. Models show the cold front will be fairly steep and 
there will be a decent pressure gradient with the front so expect a 
few hour burst of gusty winds for the coast...nothing unusual for 
that part of the County Warning Area but winds should rise quickly. 


00z GFS/NAM model still showing quite an unstable air mass over US 
Tuesday. GFS cape values generally in the 300-400 j/kg range but with 
peak around 500-700 j/kg. Also there is little or no convective 
inhibition associated with this air mass. Equilibrium levels mostly 
well above the -30c levels so hail growth should not be an issue. 
Probably the main issue will be cloud cover. There should be enough 
cloud breaks to get enough surface heating to initiate the stronger 
cells.Vertical wind profile looks mostly unidirectional except for 
the lowest 50 mb. This pattern could set up training cells where a 
line of showers/thunderstorms develop and form a line parallel to 
the wind flow - in this case west-southwest to east-northeast. Possible impacts with this 
is heavy rain sitting over a particular area causing some localized 
urban flooding.Hard to say with any confidence if or where training 
cells would occur...but the best time period looks to be around 2 PM 
to 5 PM Tuesday. 


Previous discussion issued at 2 PM... 
short term...a narrow band of stratus remained along the S Washington and 
just off the north Oregon coastline early Monday afternoon...with a cold 
front seen in satellite pics extending from Vancouver Island S past 
40n 130w. As the flow turns back onshore ahead of the front this 
evening expect marine clouds to spread back in...with the front 
following and reaching the coast late evening...and finally moving 
through the interior late tonight. The frontal band seen in satellite 
pics was fairly narrow...but moisture appeared sufficiently deep to 
justify high probability of precipitation overnight. 


Cool pool aloft will move across with the main trough axis Tuesday... 
with 500 mb temperatures on the order of minus 32c. This sets up a fairly deep 
layer of instability with skinny cape values potentially on the 
order of a couple hundred j/kg. The low level onshore flow will 
initially favor orographically favored terrain Tuesday...but as the best 
instability moves across with the trough axis likely probability of precipitation look 
inline for lower elevations as well. Will continue to also carry a 
chance for thunderstorms and small hail with the low freezing levels 
in the afternoon and evening. Snow showers over the Cascades 
expected to drop as low as 2500 to 3000 feet Tuesday afternoon and 
night...with the best orographics early on. This should result in a 
few inches of snowfall. At this point onshore flow does not appear 
strong enough to support advisory level amounts...but it may be 
close. With model 800 mb temperatures forecast to drop to below zero should see 
high temperatures Tuesday down close to seasonal normals. 


A secondary shortwave follows Wednesday...bringing another cool pool 
aloft. GFS and NAM model soundings again show an air mass Wednesday 
afternoon marginally unstable over a deep enough layer to include a 
slight chance of thunderstorms inland. Onshore flow however will be 
considerably weakened as low level flow turns to the north-northwest. Will still 
carry likely probability of precipitation for Wednesday afternoon but overall expect shower 
coverage to be reduced from Tuesday. 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday...brief upper level ridging 
develops late Thursday night bringing drier conditions through 
Friday morning. Models swing in a cold front Friday afternoon right 
as the next cold upper level trough starts to dig south by Friday 
night. Expect cooler and showery conditions this weekend and into 
early next week overall. 12z model solutions diverge significantly 
in the direction the upper trough takes...the GFS shows it moving 
inland through the Pacific northwest by Sunday night while the European model (ecmwf) shows 
it digging further south and moving inland through northern calif at 
the same time. Either way...unsettled weather remains in place 
through the extended forecast. /27 
&& 


Aviation...a cold front will move eastward across the region 
tonight and likely bring a brief deterioration of flight 
conditions into MVFR between 06z and 12z Tuesday. After 
which...increasing instability should lead to primarily VFR 
conditions through 06z Wednesday. However...showers...some 
capable of producing lightning and small hail...may bring brief 
MVFR and IFR flight conditions to taf sites across the region 
between 15z Tuesday and 03z Wednesday. Between uncertainty in 
timing and their expected brevity...will keep a mention of these 
lower flight conditions out of the taf forecast. 


Kpdx and approaches...an incoming front will bring a brief period 
of gusty south winds and MVFR conditions between 07z and 11z 
tonight. Post frontal instability will lead to primarily VFR 
conditions Tuesday with brief periods of MVFR and possibly IFR 
conditions in the strongest showers and isolated thunderstorms. 
/Neuman 


&& 


Marine...Small Craft Advisory level winds of 15 to 20 knots with 
gusts to 25 knots in association with a cold front are currently 
marching eastward across the waters. As winds turn 
westerly...winds should subside in general...although there could 
be an hour or two of gusty west winds immediately behind the 
front. Otherwise...expect a showery pattern Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Isolated thunderstorms and heavier showers could bring locally 
gusty winds of 25 to 30 knots...but these will generally be short 
lived and difficult to predict. 


High pressure on Thursday should allow seas and winds to relax 
considerably. However...a weakening front will likely result in 
winds increasing Friday...and continued unsettled weather may 
bring a bout or two of gusty 25 knots winds and/or higher seas over 
the upcoming weekend...but confidence in details is still low at 
this point. /Neuman
