NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland 
515 am PDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Synopsis...sunny and warm weather is expected through Monday as high 
pressure dominates the Pacific northwest. Temperatures will warm up a 
bit each day...with some inland areas reaching or exceeding 80 
degrees. An upper trough may bring cooler conditions Tuesday and 
Wednesday with some showers. Unsettled weather and cooler 
temperatures will continue through next weekend. 
&& 


Update...east winds have not been strong enough to stop fog from 
forming in some parts of the coast and have done a quick update to 
add patchy fog to the immediate coast.Tj 


Previous short term...today through Wednesday...a Rex block is 
trying to form over east Pacific as water vapor imagery shows a 
large upper ridge over the west Canadian coast and an upper low 
offshorenorthern California. This blocking pattern will slowly move 
eastward the next several days such that an upper ridge will support 
a warming airmass for the Pacific northwest. 


At the surface...high pressure holds east of the Cascades and over 
the NE Pacific. A thermal trough has shifted off of the Oregon coast 
overnight such that weak easterly winds are developing across northwest 
Oregon and SW Washington early this morning. These winds should help 
keep the coast clear of low clouds and fog this morning. A dry 
airmass should prevent fog from developing in the areas where the 
winds are calm. 


Another unseasonal warm day is in store for the Portland forecast 
area. Temperatures should be a couple of degrees warmer than 
yesterday with many Willamette Valley locations reaching or getting 
close to 80 degrees. The weak offshore winds will allow coastal 
temperatures to warm too with the greatest warming for the South 
Washington and northern Oregon coast. The thermal trough will weaken 
this afternoon as it slowly moves inland...resulting in weaker 
northerly winds through the Willamette Valley...and a better chance 
for the southern Willamette Valley to warm into the upper 70s. 


The surface pressure gradient will weaken overnight...and winds will 
be light and variable. The dry airmass should prevent fog from 
forming tonight despite the loss of mixing. The upper ridge will be 
centered over the forecast area Monday afternoon...with the 
thermally-induced surface low axis over the Willamette Valley. This 
will result in a couple degrees of additional warming inland Monday. 
Models actually show 850 mb temperatures starting to cool Monday 
afternoon...but with a slightly warmer start would expect that to 
counteract the 850mb cooling trend. Another thing to consider for 
Monday is how much drift smoke aloft will be over the area. The 
forecast assumes the smoke aloft will have similar opaqueness to what 
it currently has. 


The marine layer will deepen Monday night as an upper trough 
approaches. The surface winds will turn more onshore and expect 
marine stratus to develop along the coast...pushing inland Tuesday 
morning. Drizzle may accompany the stratus along the coast. This 
marine push will result in cooler daytime temperatures for Tuesday 
afternoon....but they will still be above the seasonal normals. 


Instability associated with the trough may generate a couple of 
showers over the mountains Tuesday afternoon. The marine 
layer should severely limit the potential for deep convection across 
SW Washington and northwest Oregon except right along the Cascade crest... 
where surface parcels will start above the marine inversion. 


The upper trough will move over the area Tuesday night and Wednesday 
with a chance for showers. Wednesday will be noticeably cooler with 
temperatures back to seasonal normals. Tj 


Long term...Wednesday night through Saturday...a shortwave ridge 
will result in a brief dry period Wednesday night and Thursday. 
Models are in fair agreement that a weak front will move over the 
area Thursday. The models have been progressively weaker with this 
front the last couple of model runs...and am less confident on rain 
chances with this front. An upper level low will develop over the NE 
Pacific Friday and Saturday undersold in unsettled weather for the 
weekend. Tj 
&& 


Aviation...clear and dry under dry stable northwest flow aloft. Will 
again see patchy fog in the coastal valleys and bays where winds 
are light this am. Should burn off between 15z and 17z. 


Kpdx and approaches...clear and dry under high pressure. No weather 
impacts expected through Monday. Rockey 
&& 


Marine...not much change. High pressure remains anchored over the 
NE Pacific and inland Pacific northwest...while thermal low pressure sits over northwest 
calif. This will maintain gusty north winds on the coastal waters. The 
strongest winds will be over the central Oregon waters south of 
Cascade Head...where gusts of 25 to 30 knots will continue. Winds 
will be lighter north of Cascade Head...with gusts 20 to 25 knots. 
The winds strongest this afternoon into this evening. 


While base swell running at 6 to 7 feet...the winds are creating 
some chop and building seas to 8 to 9 feet...although these may 
touch close to 10 feet from around Florence southward today. 


The next front will move through the waters on Tuesday. Then the 
longer range shows high pressure over the NE Pacific strengthening during 
the middle of next week..with northwest winds gusting 20 to 30 knots at 
times. Also expect increasing northwest swell to push seas back into the 
low to middle teens starting Wednesday.Rockpylebonk

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds through Monday am on all waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar 
conditions until 8 am today.
