NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1048 am PDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...morning update...a storm system continues to move 
towards Vancouver Island this morning. This system has been pushing 
a cold front through the Pacific northwest. This front moved through 
Pendleton shortly before 830 am and the Tri-Cities between 830 and 
900 am. Winds will be breezy to very windy across most of the area 
today into early evening due to the passage of this cold front. 
Areas across the Columbia Basin with the strongest winds will also 
see areas of blowing dust reducing visibilities. Thus will continue 
the current wind and blowing dust advisories. Some locations, such 
as Dayton, hit their high temperature for the day early this morning ahead 
of the front. Do expect temperatures that fall with the frontal passage to 
rise back to the middle 70s through the lower 80s this afternoon. Two 
bands of precipitation will continue to lift northeast through the region 
this morning. Should see some showers redevelop over the Cascade 
east slopes, especially in Washington, this afternoon. Also a few 
showers should redevelop over northeast Oregon in the afternoon. May 
be enough instability for a stray thunderstorm over Wallowa County 
as well this afternoon and evening. Updates were made to adjust some 
high temps, winds, and shower coverages. Further afternoon temperature 
updates may be made later. 90 


Aviation...18z tafs...VFR conditions will prevail for the next 24 
hours. However...visibilities may occasionally drop to MVFR behind a 
front through 29/21z. Light rain will develop late tonight and 
continue for 2-4 hours at each site. Winds will be 15-25 kts with 
gusts approaching 35 kts through the afternoon. The winds will 
decrease overnight but increase to 10-20 kts after 30/14z. Earle 


&& 


Long term...previous discussion...the area will be under the 
influence of an upper level trough through the long term period and 
unsettled weather is expected. On Monday night the trough will be 
broad and shallow with a westerly flow over the area. An upper low 
will be off the northern British Columbia coast and will sink south, 
ending up near northern Vancouver Island by Tuesday afternoon. Rain 
showers will struggle to get very far past the Cascade crest though 
by Tuesday afternoon, there should be a few light showers as far 
east as Yakima and Ellensburg. The rest of the area will remain dry. 
Winds will become breezy Tuesday afternoon. The upper low will 
deepen the trough and turn the flow over our area more 
southwesterly. A front will move through the area Tuesday night and 
Wednesday bringing a chance of light rain to the entire area. 
Another impulse will move through the trough on Thursday and bring a 
chance of rain and a slight chance of thunderstorms to the mountains 
with a slight chance of rain in central Oregon and the Blue Mountain 
foothills. The GFS shows the impulse carving the trough further 
south on Friday with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the eastern 
mountains. The European model (ecmwf) is less vigorous with this impulse and does not 
show any precipitation but does deepen the trough somewhat. Have 
leaned towards the GFS and put a slight chance of thunderstorms in 
the eastern mountains. On Saturday, both models show the trough 
starting to move eastward with a slight chance of thunderstorms 
mainly in Wallowa County and the higher terrain in the rest of the 
eastern mountains. Tuesday will see temperatures in the 70s and 
lower 80s. Wednesday and Thursday will be cooler with highs in the 
middle 60s to middle 70s. Friday and Saturday will see temperatures back 
in the middle 70s to lower 80s with middle 60s to middle 70s in the 
mountains. 


&& 


Aviation...previous discussion...12z tafs...VFR conditions will 
continue for the next 24 hours however a frontal passage early to 
midday Saturday will cause MVFR and perhaps IFR visibilities due to 
blowing dust at kpsc, kalw, kpdt and kykm. Winds will increase 
rapidly in the next few hours and west to southwest winds of 20 to 
30 kts with gusts to 40 kts are expected from 17z to 01z before 
winding down to below 15 kts by 04z. Kdls is expected to have winds 
of 10 to 20 kts with gusts to 30 kts due to the east/west 
orientation of the Columbia Gorge being somewhat sheltered from the 
southwest winds. Ceilings will be generally scattered to broken 
above 5000 feet above ground level. Rain showers will be confined today to in and 
near the Cascades with kdls having -shra through 20z and krdm and 
kbdn having vcsh through 19z. Another disturbance will bring -shra 
to kdls and kykm after 08z. 


&& 


Fire weather...red flag warnings in effect through 7 PM this 
evening for gusty winds for zones 640 641 642 643 644 645 and 675. 
An upper low and cold front are moving across the Pacific northwest 
today. This will bring gusty southwest to west winds through early 
evening. Some light rain is likely along the Cascades and east 
slopes...mainly this morning. Another system will move across the 
area Sunday. This will result in a better chance of rain along with 
much cooler temperatures. Breezy west winds will continue.
