NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
242 PM PDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Short term...tonight through Saturday...an upper level ridge will 
remain over the western U.S. Through this period. As a result the 
upper level flow over the Pacific northwest will run southwest to 
west-southwest. Weak disturbances embedded within this flow will 
periodically move across the region. These waves will grab pieces of 
the subtropical moisture covering the southwest U.S., But the pacnw 
will not see a full tap into this moisture. These waves, combined 
with daytime heating, will result in showers and thunderstorms of 
varying coverages through Saturday. The main area affected into this 
evening will be across central and east-central Oregon with lesser 
coverages into The Blues and wallowas. Coverages of storms will 
increase Thursday and Friday as the wave expected late Thursday into 
Friday looks to be the strongest of the series. Thus will push 
scattered coverage into northeast Oregon Thursday and also continue 
to indicate a slight chance of lingering storms overnight into 
Friday. There is some indication in the GFS and European model (ecmwf) models that 
some of our western zones may see increasing drying Saturday 
afternoon. This would limit shower and storm development in these 
zones. For now will indicate an area of drying into the area around 
The Gorge, but leave showers/storms mentioned elsewhere. 
Temperatures will remain above seasonal, but with increasing 
moisture and cloudiness should see temperatures cool a few degrees. Thus 
will not extend the current heat advisories beyond their expiration 
this evening. 90 


Long term...Sunday night through Wednesday afternoon...amplified 
middle/upper level ridge of high pressure is still forecast to relax 
heights on the northern flank of the ridge from Monday through 
Wednesday, but otherwise maintain its orientation across the 
southwestern United States. 


Southerly transport of middle level monsoonal moisture should reach a 
peak on Sunday. Daytime surface heating will destabilize the 
atmosphere Sunday afternoon/evening for a chance of afternoon and 
evening thunderstorms across the ochoco-John Day Highlands, the 
southern Blue Mountains and the Wallowa Mountains. Monday and 
Tuesday the ridge loses amplitude over the Pacific northwest in 
response to an upstream trough in the northeast Pacific. This system 
is prognosticated to approach the coast on Wednesday. Daytime high 
temperatures will remain near to above normal in the Pacific 
northwest with highs in the lower Columbia Basin of around 100 
degrees each day through Tuesday. However, highs on Wednesday will 
be moderated a bit by virtue of a weak marine push on Wednesday. 
Polan 


&& 


Aviation...00z tafs...VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 
hours. Few-scattered middle and high level clouds from thunderstorm anvil 
blowoff over the ochoco-John Day Highlands and central Oregon this 
afternoon will be possible at kdls, kpdt and kalw after 22z. This 
afternoon expect a repeat of thunderstorms in central Oregon after 
21z and have thunderstorms in the vicinity in the tafs at kbdn and krdm starting at 22z. 
Surface winds will remain below 15 kts for the next 24 hours, except 
kdls may have some gusts up to 26 kts this afternoon. Krdm and kbdn 
will have sustained northerly winds of 10-15 kts for the remainder 
this afternoon and until sunset, except when thunderstorms are in 
the vicinity which may produce outflow gust fronts with variable 
winds 20-25 kts with higher gusts to 35 kts. Polan 


&& 


Fire weather...warm and dry conditions will persist as a ridge of high 
pressure remains over the region. Overnight humidity recovery will 
be poor to moderate. Each day this week...thunderstorm chances will 
increase and spread north and east as several weak disturbances 
interact with monsoon flow. Most thunderstorms should stay south of 
the Washington border until Friday and Saturday. Storms that develop 
will be a mixture of wet and dry with precipitation ranging from a 
few hundredths of an inch to around a quarter of an inch. Red flag 
warnings are in effect for abundant lightning across central Oregon 
through Saturday. Over the northeast mountains...only isolated 
thunderstorms are expected today. Scattered thunderstorms will then 
be possible across a larger area on Thursday...and red flag warnings 
for the northeast mountains begin Thursday afternoon. Cobb
