 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:37 PM PST on December 18, 2014


... Flooding threat increasing Saturday night through Monday for
northwest Oregon and southwest Washington rivers...

Strong and deep moist westerly flow will begin crossing the pacnw
coast Saturday morning. A very long fetch of moisture is stretching
across the Pacific with origins west to the South China Sea and has
above average potential to bring heavy rains to the area. As
such... this continues to give the appearance of a classic high
precipitation atmospheric river event where the deep moist flow will
spend a significant amount of time on a nearly perpendicular course
against the Coast Range with the Cascades taking a bit higher of the
impact. Latest forecasts for Friday night through Monday afternoon
bring 8 to 12 inches of rain to the Cascades and foothills... 7 to
11 inches for the Coast Range... 5 to 7 inches along the immediate
coast... and 3 to 4 inches along the I-5 corridor.

Given latest data... it appears multiple Coast Range rivers have a
moderate potential of exceeding flood stage. Additionally... this
event has sufficient depth to bring significant rains to the north
Oregon and South Washington Cascades where rivers will also see
potential for notable flooding.

Keep in mind that details will always be in flux under these
scenarios as subtle north or south shifts cold make dramatic
differences in which basins receive extended periods of moderate to
heavy rain. Please continue to follow the latest forecasts and
impacts as conditions warrant.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
350 PM PST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


Synopsis...rain will increase tonight as a more organized frontal 
system pushes onshore. A colder upper trough moves across the area 
Friday...which will lower snow levels below the Cascade passes. Mild 
and very wet weather is expected this weekend with an atmospheric 
river bringing heavy rain to the region. The exact location of the 
jet stream and associated moisture plume is still in question...but 
there is increasing confidence that it will take aim at SW Washington 
and northwest Oregon. There is the potential for some flooding late this 
weekend into early next week. 


&& 


Short term....tonight through Sunday...National Weather Service Doppler radar continues 
to depict light rain spreading across the region this afternoon in 
association with an approaching frontal system. Rainfall totals this 
afternoon have been light...with totals generally around one tenth of 
an inch for most spots. Some of the higher elevation locations have 
measured around one quarter inch. Models remain in agreement that the 
frontal boundary will push onshore this evening. Ahead of the 
front...gusty south winds will increase across the coastal 
areas...with gusts into the 50-55 miles per hour range this evening for the more 
exposed beaches and headlands. 


The system tonight will bring a shot of rain tonight through early 
Friday with around an inch of rain for the coast and Coast 
Range and around a half inch for the valley. Snow levels will 
gradually rise a little this evening ahead of the front...but lower 
down to below the Cascade passes by early Friday morning as the cold 
upper trough slides over the region. However...the bulk of the 
precipitation will have finished by the time snow levels come down. 
Overall...a few inches of snow at the passes are possible with a few 
additional inches of snow at the higher Cascade elevations. Added a 
slight chance of thunderstorms to the forecast for the Coast Range 
and points west for early tomorrow morning. The upper trough moves 
through the area and model forecast soundings indicate decent 
instability. 


Models continue to remain in good agreement that a very moist 
atmospheric river pattern will set up directing large amounts of 
mositure at SW Washington and northwest Oregon this weekend. Heavy rainfall 
likely begins by early Saturday morning and continues through at 
least Sunday. The Coast Range...Willapa Hills...Cascades...and 
foothills will likely see on the order of 8 to 12 inches of rainfall. 
Locations on the coast may see 5 to 7 inches of rain...while the 
Interior Valley locations can expect 3 to 4 inches. While some 
uncertainty in the precise areas of maximum rainfall 
exists...confidence is increasing that large amounts of precipitation 
will occur across the forecast area with this system. As a 
result...there is the potential for sharp rises on area rivers and 
streams that may result in flooding. See the hydrology section for 
more details. 


In addition...those planning to be along the coast at areas beaches 
should closely monitor the conditions for this weekend. Rapidly 
building seas will bring the potential for dangerous high surf along 
the area beaches on Friday. Long period swells may reach shore and 
surprise individuals who are unaware. Anyone on the beaches should 
exercise extreme caution and avoid the surf zone as large waves may 
wash over beaches and jetties with little warning. Some potential for 
minor tidal overflow is possible for Saturday and Sunday...especially 
around high tides. This threat could be enhanced by high flows on 
rivers in response to the rainfall this weekend. Cullen 


&& 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...models agree the 
weekend rain/flooding event will wind down Sunday night into Monday. 
A much weaker front may slide southward across northwest Oregon and 
southwest Washington Monday night into Tuesday. Models have wavered 
a bit on this system so probability of precipitation were generally kept in the high end 
chance to low end likely. Conditions should temporarily dry out late 
Tuesday before a colder storm system brings showers to the area on 
Wednesday...but discrepancies continue among the models. Snow levels 
will likely lower well below pass level so Holiday travelers headed 
over the Cascade passes will certainly need to monitor the forecast. 
Cold northerly will follow and allow temperatures to cool well below 
normal as conditions dry out late week. Easterly winds will likely 
return. /Neuman 


&& 


Hydrology...situation setting up for a memorable hydrologic event 
mainly for later this weekend and heading into next week. Strong and 
deep moist westerly flow will begin crossing the pacnw coast come 
Saturday morning. A very long fetch of moisture is stretching across 
the Pacific with origins west to the South China Sea. This moist air 
mass will be pushed east by a 150 to 170 knots jet and westerly 25 to 
50 knots lower level winds. As such...this continues to give the 
appearance of a classic high precipitation atmospheric river event 
where the deep moist flow will spend a significant amount of time 
on a nearly perpendicular course against the Coast Range with the 
Cascades taking a bit higher of the impact. As of the morning model 
runs and recent nwrfc updates...it appears multiple Coast Range 
rivers have a moderate potential of exceeding flood stage. 
Additionally...this event has sufficient depth to bring significant 
rains to the north Oregon and South Washington Cascades where rivers 
will also see potential for notable flooding. Will continue the 
hydrologic outlook (pdxesfpqr) product highlighting concerns. Keep 
in mind that details will always be in flux under these scenarios as 
subtle north/south shifts cold make dramatic differences in which 
basins receive extended periods of moderate to heavy rain. Please 
continue to follow the latest forecasts and impacts as conditions 
warrant. River forecasts are available on our web Page at:

&& 


Aviation...mix of VFR and MVFR ceilings and visible this evening will 
drop to MVFR/IFR after midnight. Post frontal showers across the 
area will bring down ceilings and visible. Winds at kttd gusting to 30 kts 
will help keep ceilings up at kttd and possibly kpdx...though ceilings may 
drop to MVFR/IFR with heavier showers. Rain to continue through 
the day Friday...with a chance of thunderstorms along the coast 
Friday morning. Ceilings and visible likely to improve to a mix of VFR and 
MVFR by Friday afternoon. 


Pdx and approaches...VFR ceilings likely to stay VFR this 
evening...with periods of MVFR ceilings and visible starting late this 
evening behind the cold front. Ceilings and visible likely to drop to 
MVFR/IFR early Friday morning...but improve to VFR by Friday 
afternoon. -McCoy 


&& 


Marine...combined seas around 12 feet building to 14 to 16 feet by 
Friday morning. Seas will rapidly build during the afternoon hours as 
the 20 to 22 feet swell approaches...bringing seas up to 22 feet by 
Friday evening. Seas will remain around 20 to 22 feet through 
Saturday morning. As the swell begins to drop off...southerly 
winds increase ahead of our next strong cold front. Gales look 
likely with this system...keeping seas around 20 to 22 feet through 
Saturday morning. Seas begin to drop below 20 feet Saturday 
afternoon behind the front...as winds ease...but seas will stay in 
the upper teens through Sunday evening. 


Another weak frontal system could keep small craft winds across 
our southern waters through Sunday night. Otherwise...relatively 
benign weather expected early next week as high pressure builds 
over the waters. -McCoy
