NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
347 PM PST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Synopsis...a strong and moist frontal system is moving onshore 
today. This is resulting in moderate to heavy rain across the region 
and very gusty winds along the coast. The trailing cold front will 
move through the region this evening. Snow levels will drop sharply 
behind the cold front...reaching down to the Cascade passes 
overnight. Expect steady accumulating snow in the mountains through 
the weekend...with showers over The Lowlands. Upper level high pressure 
will strengthen over the NE Pacific beginning late sun into Monday. 
However...several low pressure systems moving through to the north will 
keep precipitation chances around at times through midweek. 


&& 


Short term...a strong and moist low pressure system is bringing a return 
to seasonal Pacific northwest late Fall weather today. Widespread heavy rain has 
spread inland this afternoon in association with the leading warm 
front moving onshore. Subtropical moisture is feeding into this 
system as seen on AMSU satellite imagery...which is showing a plume 
of around 1.5 inches of precipitable water just offshore. So far most 
locations have seen around one quarter to one half inch of 
rain...while some sites in the northern Coast Range are closing in on 
an inch. Steady rain will continue in the warm sector of the storm 
until the trailing cold front comes through. The frontal wind shift 
is now showing up clearly on the velocity data of the lowest 
elevation scan of the klgx radar. It appears that the front will 
start pushing onto the coast within the next hour...then push inland 
through the evening hours. The strong SW winds that have been 
observed along the coast over the past several hours will switch to 
westerly and drop off pretty quickly behind the cold front. A High 
Wind Warning is in effect through 7 PM...but expect the strong winds 
will be over before then. 


The steady rain will transition to showers later tonight behind the 
departing cold front. Snow levels have risen to well above 6000 feet 
today...but expect them to drop sharply tonight as colder air moves 
in aloft. Accumulating snow will develop down to the Cascade Pass 
elevations overnight and continue through much of Sat in good 
west/northwest orographic flow. We have issued a Winter Weather 
Advisory for the S Washington...north Oregon...and Lane County Cascade 
zones from early Sat morning through Sat evening. Expect 5 to 10 
inches of accumulation at the passes through Sat evening...with well 
over a foot possible at higher elevations. It appears that there will 
be a bit of a break in the snowfall Sat night into early sun as 
moisture availability begins to wane. However...the latest model runs 
are suggesting that another upper level impulse will move through on 
sun...possibly bring another round of accumulating snowfall. 


For the lower elevations...expect a fairly mild and seasonal weekend. 
There will be plenty of showers around...but do not expect 
significant quantitative precipitation forecast totals. There is potential for some isolated 
thunderstorms Sat morning and afternoon...mainly along the coast and 
Coast Range...as near shore ocean temperatures are still in the middle 50s in 
many locations and will boost low level instability. The forecast model 
soundings indicate that there is slight potential over the interior 
lowlands as well...but confidence was not high enough to add them to 
the forecast at this time. Pyle 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday. 
Upper level ridging begins to strengthen over the NE Pacific late sun 
into Monday and remains appears likely to remain in place through at 
least the first half of next week. However...it does not appear that 
the ridge will be strong enough to keep US dry. The latest forecast 
models show several systems passing to the north spreading rain into 
SW Washington and northwest Oregon. Precipitation appears to be on the lighter side 
during the time period and no significant weather systems are 
currently anticipated heading into the Thanksgiving travel period. 
Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...ceilings dropping to MVFR/IFR this afternoon as rain 
spreads across the area. Winds increasing across the 
valley...while high winds persist along the coast. Low level wind shear likely at 
kttd as southerlies increase to 30-50 kts above the low- level 
easterlies...below fl030. This should be ending by 00z as 
easterlies weaken. 


Behind the cold front...expect rain to continue overnight...keeping 
ceilings down to IFR/LIFR. Slight chance of thunderstorms along the 
coast early tomorrow. Inland...expect ceilings to begin lifting around 
16z. Inland sites should be VFR by 18-20z. Scattered showers could 
lower conditions to MVFR occasionally during the afternoon. 


Kpdx and approaches...MVFR conditions will drop to IFR around 
03z...and will remain mostly IFR overnight. Ceilings will begin to 
lift around 16z...improving to VFR by 18z.

&& 


Marine...Gale Warning in effect through late this evening. 
Southerly gales currently being observed along the coast. Seas 
near 15 feet along the north coast...18ft being observed at buoy 50 
along the central coast. Seas will continue to rise until the cold 
front moves onshore later this evening...peaking around 22 feet 
along the central coast and around 20 feet along the north coast. 
Winds will also continue to increase until the cold front moves 
inland...with winds reaching 40 to 45 kts with occasional gusts 
above 50 kts mainly in the inner waters near the coast. Winds 
should begin to decrease behind the front...dropping to 15 to 20 
kts overnight. 


Seas tomorrow look to remain around 13 to 14 feet tomorrow. Another 
front approaches late Saturday into Sunday...which will be the 
next system to affect the waters. This system looks to be 
weaker...but seas in the low teens ahead of this system could 
bring seas back up into the middle to upper teens on Sunday.
