Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:00 PM PDT on October 23, 2014


... Potential for strong wind this weekend for southwest Washington
and northwest Oregon...

A low pressure system is forecast to develop well off the
northern California coast Friday and move northeast toward the
Oregon and Washington coast Friday night... and then move inland
Saturday. There is the potential for high wind along the coast and
windy conditions in the Willamette Valley and southwest Washington
interior lowlands. There is still plenty of uncertainty regarding
the strength and timing of this system. Should high winds
occur... downed trees and power outages would be possible. At this
time it looks like the strongest wind would occur late Saturday
afternoon through the evening.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
302 am PDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front will spread light rain into SW Oregon 
this morning and across northwest Oregon and SW Washington in the 
afternoon and evening. A cold front will push inland Saturday 
afternoon and evening...and possibly produce a brief period of strong 
wind gusts along the coast. An upper trough will continue showers 
through Sunday. Another frontal system is expected early next week. 


&& 


Short term...Friday through Monday...radar imagery shows that 
showers have mostly eased this morning but stratiform rain will 
return from south to north through the afternoon as a warm front 
lifts over the area. This will also induce offshore low-level flow 
through the Columbia Gorge as pressure gradients increase. The north 
zones should be dry for at least the first half of today ahead of the 
approaching warm front. 


A low well offshore northern California continues to deepen overnight 
tonight into Sat morning. Although models agree fairly well on the 
track of the low...and the GFS has consolidated the system into one 
single low instead of an elongated two...there are still 
discrepancies on the strength. Rain is certain based on the track but 
winds will depend very much on the strength of the low so confidence 
is lower in that regard with the system. The NAM and ecm show 
slightly SW flow through the Willamette Valley Saturday evening which 
would be more favorable for higher winds than the slightly southeast flow 
depicted by the GFS. Favored the NAM/ecm solution with coastal wind 
gusts up to 60 miles per hour Saturday afternoon...particularly on the immediate 
central Oregon coast...and valley wind gusts up to about 45 miles per hour 
Saturday evening but these numbers may change as the models hopefully 
come into better agreement. 


A broad upper trough...similar to what was over the area 
Thursday...settles over the region Sunday. This will bring additional 
short-waves through the forecast area Sat night and Sunday. Snow 
levels fall to near Cascade Pass levels Sunday. Weak ridging moves 
over the area Sunday night and into Monday morning with rain chances 
dwindling briefly before the next system approaches. Bowen/tj 


Long term...Monday night through Thursday night...an active weather 
pattern continues through next week. The next frontal 
system...including the remnants of Hurricane Ana...will move through 
the region Monday night into Tuesday bringing continued rain and 
winds along the coast. Shortwaves will support rain through 
Wednesday. Beginning around Thursday the models diverge significantly 
to the extent that climatology seems the best bet at this point for the 
remaining 24 hours of the forecast period. Bowen/27 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions with a few showers to continue 
through about 18z this morning...may be a few spots of MVFR 
ceilings. After 18z a warm front lifting north will spread some rain north into 
northwest Oregon...but overall conditions expected to remain VFR...with 
rain decreasing after 06z tonight as the warm front lifts into Washington. 


Kpdx and approaches...mainly VFR conditions continuing today and 
tonight. A few light showers are possible through 20z...before a 
more general rain develops. Although unlikely...there is about a 10 
percent chance for seeing a short period of MVFR ceilings before 18z. 


&& 


Marine...rather benign conditions today as light S winds back 
around to the east late in the day. A low pressure system is expected to 
deepen to around 995 mb and approach from the SW tonight...then move 
north through the coastal waters Sat before moving inland over western 
Washington late Sat. The exact track and strength of the low are still in 
question...but overall expectation is for southerly gales with this 
low Sat. The gales will bring steep seas with wave heights expected 
to peak around 17 to 20 feet late Sat...but again...this will depend 
on the track and strength of the low. 


Once the low moves inland Monday evening...winds will turn to back 
to the west and decrease along with seas subsiding. Another system is 
expected to approach from the west early next week...around Monday night. 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...gale watch from late tonight through Saturday evening for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Cascade Head or 
out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 3 am PDT early 
this morning for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to 
Florence or out 60 nm. 


Gale watch from this evening through Saturday afternoon for 
coastal waters from Cascade Head or to Florence or out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar until 
7 am PDT this morning.
