Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:50 am PST on November 28, 2014


... Unseasonably mild weather to give way to much colder
temperatures and possible low elevation snow beginning tonight...

While southwest Washington and northwest Oregon have been
experiencing record setting warmth for the last several days... a
major change in the weather pattern is on the way. A strong cold
front will move through the region from north to south tonight.
While snow levels will initially be high... they will lower
dramatically behind the front. As a result... Post frontal showers
may fall as a mix of rain and snow down to the valley floor late
tonight and Saturday before the precipitation ends by Saturday night.

Travel will become increasingly difficult through the Cascades and
eventually the foothills tonight as rain changes to snow and starts
to accumulate on area roads. An initial burst of heavy snow is
expected with the cold front tonight... then snow showers will
continue through much of Saturday. Several inches of new snow are
possible in these areas by the time snow tapers off Saturday night.

Offshore flow will then develop Saturday night... with gusty east
winds continuing through Sunday. Areas in and around the western
Columbia River gorge may see wind gusts of 50 to 70 mph at times
Sunday. The easterly flow will also usher in a period of much colder
temperatures as it pulls in air from an Arctic air mass on the east
side of the Cascades.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
326 am PST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Synopsis...a stalled baroclinic zone over south-central Oregon 
has been reactivated this morning by an approaching upper level 
disturbance...causing rain to slowly fill back across the forecast 
region. A well-defined cold front will move southeast across the 
region tonight. There will be a sharp temperature drop with the 
passage of this cold front...with snow levels quickly lowering behind 
the front. Expect a quick burst of accumulating snowfall in the 
higher Cascade passes as the front moves through. Mixed rain/snow 
showers are then expected in The Lowlands overnight and Sat as an 
upper trough passes through...with little to no accumulation 
expected. High pressure will settle in east of the Cascades Saturday 
night and Sunday... bringing strong east winds through The Gorge and 
across the Portland metropolitan area. A system coming up from the south may 
attempt to spread moisture up over the cold air on Monday...but forecast 
details during this time remain highly uncertain. 


&& 


Short term...today through Monday...a stalled baroclinic zone over 
south-central Oregon is being reactivated by an approaching upper 
level disturbance over the NE Pacific. As a result...rain is filling back 
in across northwest Oregon and SW Washington this morning. Expect a mild and 
wet day ahead...with light to moderate steady rain falling for most 
of the day with snow levels remaining above 6000 feet. 
Meanwhile...another baroclinic zone draped over southern British 
Columbia will be driven into Washington today as a cold front by a positively 
tilted upper level trough from the north. This cold front will then 
move through SW Washington and northwest Oregon tonight. There will be a 
period of heavier precipitation with the frontal passage...along with 
the arrival of a significantly colder air mass behind the front. This 
cold front will be quite sharp by Pacific northwest standards...with the forecast 
models showing about an 8 degree celsius drop over a 6 hour period at 850 
mb with the frontal passage. Precipitation will start out as all rain 
below 6000 feet...but snow levels will rapidly plummet on the back side 
of the front.\X1aexpect a quick burst of accumulation snow for the 
higher Cascade passes with the front. It currently looks like amounts 
will remain below advisory thresholds...so will not issue any winter 
weather products at this time. However...a short period of heavy snow 
on the back side of the front may make travel over the passes 
treacherous for a time tonight. 


Precipitation will quickly taper off to showers behind the front 
overnight into Sat morning. Expect plenty of showers around through 
Sat afternoon as the positively tilted upper trough moves through the 
region. The latest forecast model runs continue to indicate 850mb temperatures 
will fall into the -6c to -8 range...which will often support a 
rain/snow mix down to near the valley floor. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts on Sat are 
not expected to be very impressive...so it doesn't look like there 
will be any major travel impacts. However...it is not out of the 
question that a few heavier showers could produce localized light 
snowfall accumulations near the valley floor...or along the S Washington or north 
or coast. 


Shower activity will drop off significant Sat night behind the 
departing upper level trough. We will then transition to a 
dry...cold...and gusty offshore flow pattern from Sat night through 
Sun night as very cold Arctic air mass and associated surface high 
pressure moves into the Columbia Basin east of the Cascades. High 
resolution forecast models continue to suggest kttd-kdls pressure 
gradients will get to -10 mb or possibly stronger. This would be 
enough for east winds gusting 60-70 miles per hour through The Gorge...and 40-45 
miles per hour gusts in the Portland metropolitan area. If models continue this 
trend...a Wind Advisory may eventually be needed for the 
Portland/Vancouver metropolitan. Temperatures will be well below normal 
Sat/sun...with highs stuck in the 30s in and near The Gorge and 40s 
most lowland locations elsewhere. Pyle 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...forecast confidence 
decreases considerably going into early next week. A closed low pressure 
system is expected to set up well offshore to our SW on sun and Sun 
night. The past several runs of the GFS model have suggested that the 
low would push close enough to the coast to spread some moisture and 
light precipitation onshore beginning Monday morning. Meanwhile...the 
European model (ecmwf) and Canadian models have been tending to keep the low further 
offshore...with mostly dry weather remaining in control over the Pacific 
northwest through midweek. However...the 00z European model (ecmwf) and to some extent the 
00z NAM as well now appear to be trending toward the GFS 
solution...bringing some moisture in from the south on Monday. An 
easterly gradient persists through The Gorge...so any precipitation that 
does fall could bring freezing rain potential for The Gorge...and 
also potentially into the Willamette Valley. Will need to monitor the 
forecast model trends closely over the next couple of days. A northern 
stream shortwave is modeled to push through later Monday night...which 
should help to erode the easterly low level gradient and bring the 
transition to a milder air mass. Chances for precipitation will 
remain through midweek as the offshore closed low slowly pushes 
toward the coast...but confidence in the details are very low at this 
time. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...a frontal boundary continues to linger from the south 
Oregon coast northeast into northeast Oregon...impacting the 
southeast portion of northwest Oregon. To the north of a front a 
handful of showers are moving through. Another more robust cold 
front was along the Washington coast early this morning and will 
move into southwest Washington and far northwest Oregon later this 
morning and early this afternoon for more substantial steadier 
rain...then across the remainder of northwest Oregon this 
afternoon and evening. The net result will be continued rather 
deteriorated conditions over the area. The coast will see mostly 
MVFR conditions with possible IFR conditions as the northern front 
drops south into the area. Inland will see a mixture of MVFR and 
low VFR conditions. Precipitation will turn showery from the 
northwest Friday night into Saturday morning with some VFR 
conditions trying to develop...and dramatically lower snow levels 
may allow some mixture of rain and snow showers to reach low 
elevations by Saturday morning. 


Kpdx and approaches...a mix of MVFR and low VFR conditions are 
expected at the terminal and approaches with ceilings 2500 to 3500 feet 
range. As a cold front moves south through the area middle day today 
ceilings may trend more to the MVFR category. South winds will 
continue much of today...shifting to west-northwest behind the front between 
4 and 7 PM this evening. Pt 
&& 


Marine...latest model guidance and observations continue to 
suggest gusts to 25 knots at times into Saturday morning. There may 
be short periods of sub advisory wind speeds through Saturday 
morning...but believe this will be the exception instead of the 
rule. One frontal boundary remains draped from southwest to 
northeast from the southern Oregon waters inland into northeast 
Oregon early this morning. A more robust cold front is along the 
Washington coast and will move south through the coastal waters 
today and early this evening for continued Small Craft Advisory 
wind. The wind will switch to the northwest behind this front. The 
northwest winds will ease on Saturday...then offshore gap enhanced 
east winds will develop Saturday night and Sunday...likely 
exceeding Small Craft Advisory criteria. The offshore wind 
continues into early next week...but favor the European model (ecmwf) wind pattern. 


Seas will be in the 10 to 12 foot range this morning. Seas fall 
below 10 feet in the central Oregon coast waters tonight...but not 
in the northern waters until late Saturday or Saturday evening. 
Seas in the central waters may briefly reach 10 feet again for a 
time on Saturday before falling below 10 feet again Saturday night. 
The offshore flow later this weekend will decrease wave height... 
but result in very choppy conditions. Pt 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 8 am PST Saturday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 
60 nm.
