Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 2:56 am PDT on September 23, 2014


... The first organized frontal system of the season will bring
heavy rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon... and and
gusty coastal winds Tuesday night and Wednesday...

An early fall frontal system will bring a drastic change in
weather tonight and Wednesday. The main weather impact will be
widespread moderate to heavy rain that will begin along the coast
late this afternoon and slowly spread inland tonight and
Wednesday.

Rainfall totals from Tuesday through the end of the week are
expected to reach near an inch over the interior lowlands... and 1
to 2 inches for the coast and mountains. This heavy rain may
result in localized urban flooding... especially where the local
wildfires have left burn scars. Roads located below burned slopes
may be at risk for rapidly moving landslides.

Motorists are urged to use caution on the roadways over the next
few days. Given the long period of dry weather that has preceded
this front... residual oil and grease on the Road surfaces will
likely become quite slick at the onset of the rain.

Gusty winds are expected along the coastal beaches and headlands
this afternoon and evening... with gusts up to 55 mph possible.
These winds combined with the heavy rain may result in the Downing
of tree limbs... and possibly localized power outages.

The colder air mass will bring snow levels into the high
Cascades... and some of the higher mountain ski resorts may even
see some snowflakes.


252 PM PDT Mon Sep 22 2014

... The first organized frontal system of the season to bring rain
and much cooler temperatures to southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon on Tuesday and Wednesday...

The fall equinox occurs at 729 PM PDT Monday. Right on cue... the
first organized frontal system of the fall will begin to move
onshore Tuesday. Expect widespread moderate to heavy rain to
accompany the front as it pushes across the region later Tue into
early Wed... along with some gusty winds along the coastal beaches
and headlands. This system will also usher in a showery and
significantly cooler weather pattern that will last through the
remainder of the week.

Rainfall totals from Tuesday through the end of the week are
expected to reach near an inch over the interior lowlands... and 1
to 2 inches for the coast and mountains. The colder air mass will
bring snow levels into the high Cascades... and some of the higher
mountain ski resorts may even see some snowflakes. Motorists are
urged to use caution on the roadways over the next few days.
Given the long period of dry weather that has preceded this
front... residual oil and grease on the Road surfaces will likely
become quite slick at the onset of the rain.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Portland or 
257 am PDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis...cloudy skies and showers will continue today as a weak 
front dissipates over the area. A stronger and more moist front will 
produce more substantial rain tonight into Wednesday. An upper 
trough will maintain cool and showery weather through Friday. An 
upper ridge should bring drier weather for the weekend...but there is 
a lot of uncertainty in the forecast beyond Friday. 


&& 


Short term...today through Friday...satellite imagery shows a 
well-defined low near 45n 141w early this morning...with an 
associated cold front slowly approaching the Washington and Oregon 
coast. An upper level shortwave ahead of this low has resulted in 
convective showers across northwest Oregon overnight. The showers have 
mostly moved into Washington early this morning...but isolated to 
scattered showers are still possible for northwest Oregon throughout the day 
as a weak frontal zone associated with this first shortwave 
dissipates over western WA/OR. 


The next...more impressive front will begin to spread rain and gusty 
winds to the coast early this evening and slowly move inland tonight 
into Wednesday morning. This will be the first fall-like storm of the 
season with winds and rainfall totals being closely monitored. 
Modeled surface pressure gradients still appear too east-west 
oriented to produce strong winds for the entire coast and think gusty 
winds will be most noticeable for the beaches and headlands where the 
NAM still shows the potential for a coastal jet to produce near high 
wind criteria gusts. 


This front is tapping into subtropical moisture as it moves across 
the Pacific. The combination of this moisture. With isentropic lift 
and orographic enhancement provides the potential for 1 to 2 inches 
of rain across the higher terrain of northwest Oregon and SW Washington 
Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon...and up to an inch 
possible for the low lands. The rain will stall over the Cascades 
Wednesday afternoon and night with rain turning to showers west of 
the Cascades. 


Will need to monitor burn scar areas for the potential for debris 
flows/flash flooding...particularly along the Clackamas river Highway 
which is in a Steep Canyon to begin with. 


The main frontal zone will slowly shift east of the Cascades 
Thursday. The upper level trough offshore will become more negatively 
tilted Thursday and increase the chances for convective showers over 
the area. Cooler than normal temperatures will persist. 


Models hint that the upper trough will split Friday...sending most of 
its energy north and south of the Portland forecast area. This will 
lead to a decrease in shower chances...but left a chance in the 
forecast due to the uncertainty of the path of the upper low. If it 
tracks any farther south than the 00z models suggest...northwest Oregon will 
have more showers than they currently suggest. 


Long term...forecast confidence decreases considerably as we go into 
next weekend. The last few runs of the GFS move the upper level low 
off to the east and show upper level ridging nosing into the Pacific northwest. 
This would bring warmer and drier conditions to the Pacific northwest for Sat 
and sun. Meanwhile...the European model (ecmwf) and Canadian models are tending to 
keep the much cooler and showery weather in place through the 
weekend. Given the variety of model solutions...will just keep a 
middle of the Road forecast with moderate temperatures and slight chances for 
showers in place for Sat and sun. Upper level low pressure over the 
Gulf of Alaska is modeled to bring the next front into the Pacific northwest 
either late in the weekend or early next week...depending on whether 
the weekend Pacific northwest ridging develops. The brunt of this front is 
expected to remain to our north. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...VFR continues across the region this am...but will 
have a few occasional pockets of MVFR ceilings along the coast. 
Scattered showers mainly over the coast and Coast Ranges. Suspect 
will continue to see very isolated thunderstorms in that area today. As 
next stronger front approaches later today and this evening...will 
have increasing MVFR ceilings with rain increasing. Will also have 
increasing south winds along the coast...with gusts 30 to 40 knots. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR today with occasional showers mainly 
this morning. Clouds will thicken and lower after 00z as next 
front approaches. Steady rain likely to develop by 07z tonight. 
Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...not much in way of changes. Small Craft Advisory up 
today for gusty S to southeast winds. Seas mostly 4 to 6 feet. 


Big story will the approaching front tonight. South winds will 
increase later today...with stronger winds developing this 
evening. Still looks reasonable that will have solid gale force 
southerlies tonight...with strongest winds probably in 7 PM to 
midnight time frame. Afterwards...front pushes onshore. But will 
maintain moderately strong S to southeast pressure gradient overnight. So 
will keep gale force winds continuing. 


Another front moves onshore on Wednesday...with another round of low end 
gale force winds for Wednesday afternoon and evening. 


Seas below 7 feet today...but will increase tonight as the winds 
kick up. Likely to top at at 10 to 13 feet tonight. However...the 
main fetch area of swell will arrive on early Wednesday. West swell 
building to 15 to 18 feet Wednesday am with the large swell over the outer 
waters. With winds...this makes combined seas at 14 feet nearshore 
and close to 20 feet over the outer waters. Seas gradually subside 
later Wednesday night...but stay above 10 feet through Friday. Rockey. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...gale watch for late this afternoon through tonight on all 
coastal waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for winds today on all coastal waters.
