NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
934 am PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge remains anchored over the Great 
Basin and northern rockies. Upper level low pressure lingers off the 
West Coast of Canada...as a result the Pacific northwest remains 
under south to southwesterly flow aloft. The result is very weak 
onshore flow...enough to affect the immediate coastal valleys while 
the interior remains very warm. Weak disturbances lifting north from 
California will bring a chance for thunderstorms at times to the 
Cascades...mainly Lane County. Little change expected in this overall 
pattern the next several days. 


&& 


Update...few changes were made to the forecast this morning. 
Satellite imagery shows some altocumulus lifting into Lane County 
from the south. This indicates a bit of middle-level moisture and 
instability...and in-cloud lightning was detected in one of these 
clouds east of Eugene earlier this morning. A similar altocumulus 
buildup is headed toward Santiam Pass...and would not be surprised to 
see a stray lightning strike out of this cell either. Thus we added a 
slight chance of thunder for the Lane County Cascades early today as 
well as this afternoon. 


Believe the environment moving in aloft over east Lane County is 
better characterized by the 12z Medford sounding than the Salem 
sounding. Models do not seem to be handling the moisture aloft very 
well. A weak dry slot is notable on water vapor imagery...headed 
north from the or/California border. This could provide the trigger for more 
numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop in the Oregon Cascades 
as the day progresses. This was reflected well in the morning 
forecast and made few changes.Weagle 


/prev disc issued 307 am PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014/ 


Short term...an upper low off the b.C. Coast and an upper level 
ridge anchored inland over the western U.S. Will be the features 
affecting the weather for the Pacific northwest this week. Light 
mostly southwest flow aloft with high 500 mb heights. The marine 
layer remains shallow under the subsidence aloft and is limited to 
the coastal zones with a little seepage up the lower Columbia River. 


Very similar conditions today. The main differences are lower 500mb 
heights for a slightly cooler air mass along with an increase in the 
low level onshore flow. This will keep the marine stratus along the 
coast today. Later tonight into Wednesday morning an old frontal boundary 
slides into the coastal waters and may bring some drizzle to the 
coast.Marine stratus should seep further inland and try to extend 
inland to near Portland but anything will be very brief and not have 
much impact. Temperatures inland will continue to be very warm with little 
change through Thursday. 


As for thunderstorm activity...another batch of moisture arrives into 
the southern zones this afternoon. Instability is limited for cloud 
growth up to the -30c level and will likely need the higher terrain 
of the Cascades to initiate convection. So expect any convection to 
be isolated at best. However with the increased moisture a strong 
cell could dump a fair amount of precipitation in a short time. The pattern 
Wednesday and Thursday looks very similar to Tuesday...with a chance 
of thunderstorms again over the Cascades in the afternoon and 
evening. One change in the models...precipitable water values are 
down to 0.6 inch from 1 inch over yesterdays run. 




Long term...Thursday night through Monday. The ridge in place over 
the western U.S. Will remain in place through the end of the week. A 
series of shortwaves are forecast to travel up the west side of the 
ridge...possibly impacting our area. These impulses bring chances 
for thunderstorms...mainly in the Cascades...through the weekend. 
Model uncertainty exists on the timing and strength of these 
shortwaves as model resolution accuracy declines rapidly further in 
the forecast period...especially for these smaller features. Have 
decreased probability of precipitation further north on Friday as the models have converged 
on a more southerly track for storm chances...and decreased 
confidence of thunder chance over the weekend due to great model 
uncertainty on timing and location. -McCoy 


&& 


Aviation...stratus and fog is hugging the coast and some of the 
coastal valleys with IFR conditions. The stratus made it into 
kkls this morning. Satellite imagery shows the stratus beginning 
to clear inland...and expect VFR conditions for the coast between 
19 and 21z. Gusty north winds can be expected for the coast this 
afternoon and evening. Otherwise VFR conditions for the inland 
airports. Some middle level clouds will move over the area...mainly 
south of ksle today. These clouds will increase over the Cascades 
this afternoon where there may be some thunderstorms. Tj 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR prevailing next 24 hours with generally 
light north-northwest surface winds. Cullen/tj 


&& 


Marine...there will be little change in marine weather this week. 
Surface high pressure will remain over the NE Pacific as a 
thermal trough holds over northern California. The thermal trough 
will rise slightly north in the afternoon and evenings resulting 
in a tighter pressure gradient over the Oregon waters. Gusty winds 
can be expected at these times...occasionally reaching or 
exceeding 25 knots. The gradient will be tightest south of Tillamook. 
Have extended the Small Craft Advisory for this afternoon and 
evening to include the waters beyond 10 nm south of Cascade Head. 


The seas will primarily be driven by the local winds. Steep seas 3 
to 5 feet will dominate through the week. There are some 
background longer period seas that may occasionally show up on 
the buoys...but these are very small...1 foot or less...and less 
significant to the mariner than the 3 to 5 feet seas at 6 to 8 
seconds. The steep seas will be a combination of wind wave and 
fresh swell which is nearly impossible to distinguish and have 
therefore combined the seas. The seas will be the steepest when 
the winds are the greatest...during the afternoons and 
evening...and especially south of Cascade Head and near shore. Tj 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds from 2 PM this afternoon to 11 
PM PDT this evening for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington 
to Cascade Head or out 10 nm-coastal waters and from Cascade 
Head or to Florence or out 60 nm.
