NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
227 PM PST Monday Nov 24 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front is expected to bring more rain with rising 
snow levels to much of the forecast area by this evening. The warm 
frontal zone stalls over western Washington and extreme northwest 
Oregon late tonight through Tuesday morning. The frontal band begins 
to shift north Tuesday afternoon and continues to do so Tuesday 
night. The next frontal system is expected to arrive Thanksgiving 
day. A change to much cooler conditions occurs late in the week and 
over the weekend. 
&& 


Short term...tonight through Thanksgiving day...some light radar 
returns starting to show up near the S Washington and north Oregon coast on krtx 
dual-pol Doppler radar as of 21z. Ceilings will continue to lower the 
rest of the afternoon and this evening associated with a warm front. 
Best isentropic lift late today appears to be over SW Washington. A warm 
frontal baroclinc zone aided by a strong jet develops over western Washington and 
extreme northwest Oregon tonight. The National oceanic and atmospheric administration operational blended total 
precipitable water product indicates 1 to 1.25 inches with this warm 
frontal feature. Heaviest quantitative precipitation forecast tonight will be centered on the SW Washington 
foothills and Cascades. Have nudged the 06z-12z quantitative precipitation forecast numbers 
up to nearly 2/3 of an inch in the 6-hour period which may not be 
enough. GFS continues to be the most robust with quantitative precipitation forecast...indicating 1 
to 1.25 inches in the SW Washington Cascades and foothills in the 06z-12z 
period and over 2 inches in the 12z-18z period. Have also increased 
the quantitative precipitation forecast in SW Washington and extreme northwest Oregon for the 12z-18z time frame. 
The GFS does have upwards of 40 knots westerly 850 mb flow into the S 
Washington Cascades which would generate impressive orographic enhancement. 
No river concerns as of yet...but will need to monitor should the GFS 
numbers turn out more accurate. 


Snow levels rise to above 8000 feet by tonight and remain high 
through the short term. Models gradually force the baroclinic zone 
northward late Tuesday and Tuesday night. SW Washington and the extreme northern Oregon 
zones may not be completely dry Wednesday...but areas generally south of a 
ktmk-ksle line should be dry. 850 mb temperatures rise to near 10c Wednesday...but 
valley inversions will temper the warming in those areas. Models are 
coming in better agreement with the Pacific frontal system expected 
for early Thanksgiving day. Over-running precipitation may reach the coast 
as early as 06z Thursday...then gradually push inland thereafter. Highest 
quantitative precipitation forecast looks to stay in Washington with the potential for jet stream 
phasing somewhere near Puget Sound sound. Weishaar 


Long term...no changes. Thanksgiving night through Monday. 
Complicated pattern expected to set up Friday and over the weekend. 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) show the colder northern branch of the jet stream sagging 
south Friday with an upper trough settling off the coast. European model (ecmwf) and GFS 
handle the northern stream much differently. The European model (ecmwf) allows some of the 
colder air to seep further south and west Sat compared to the GFS. 
This has major ramifications on snow levels. Have trended the 
forecast more toward the European model (ecmwf)...with snow levels falling to the 
lowest north Oregon and South Washington Cascade foothills and higher 
elevations of the Columbia Gorge by Sat night. The European model (ecmwf) also 
maintains a closed low near 35n 130w Sat night and sun with moisture 
over-running the cold air boundary. This results in the threat of 
snow below 1500 to 2000 feet across the north half of the forecast...and 
even lower in the Columbia Gorge and S Washington Cascades foothills. A lot 
of model differences in the Sat-Monday time frame thus overall 
confidence in the details is not too high. Weishaar 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions should deteriorate to MVFR tonight as 
a warm front lowers ceilings and rain or fog reduces visibilities. 
The coast should see gusty winds with gusts up to 25 knots with the 
front this evening. IFR conditions are possible for the interior 
valleys Tuesday morning as the rain decreases and winds 
calm...especially south of kpdx and along the Oregon coast. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions this afternoon. Lowering ceilings 
and brief reductions in visibilities should result in MVFR 
conditions tonight. Ceilings should remain low Tuesday morning and 
continuing MVFR conditions. Tj 


&& 


Marine...a warm front is generating breezy southerly winds over 
the waters this afternoon...verifying the Small Craft Advisory. 
Still expect a brief period of localized gusts around 35 knots with 
the front passage...mainly within 20 nm between 4 and 7 PM. The 
winds will ease below 25 knots and veer to the SW tonight. SW winds 
will increase north of Cascade Head overnight tonight into Tuesday 
morning...with another round of winds or gusts around 25 knots. 
These winds are due to a cold front that will stall north of the 
waters. A stronger front will likely generate southerly gales Wednesday 
or Wednesday night. Have held off on issuing a gale watch to limit 
the confusion of multiple headlines. 


Combined seas will hover around 10 feet through Tuesday 
afternoon. Seas at or above 10 feet may hold on north of Cascade 
Head into Wednesday morning due to the localized stronger winds. The 
seas will gradually subside Wednesday...before building with the 
next front Wednesday night and Thursday. Tj 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 10 PM PST this evening for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for winds from 4 am Tuesday to midnight 
PST Tuesday night for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to 
Cascade Head or out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 4 am PST Tuesday 
for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 
60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar until 11 PM 
PST this evening.
