NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
326 am PDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis...little change in the overall weather pattern is expected 
throughout this Holiday weekend...with a strong upper level ridge 
resulting in persistent inland heat. The ridge is keeping the marine 
layer shallow...with its cooling influence generally limited to the 
coast and adjacent coastal valleys. Inland valleys remain well above 
normal with temperatures in the 90s through at least Sunday... 
possibly longer. An upper level low cutting off near the central 
California coast may spin some moisture up toward the Lane County 
Cascades...but the best chance of thunder will be south toward the 
or/California border. Some cooling is possible later next week as the upper 
ridge loosens its grip...but well above normal temperatures appear 
likely through at least the middle of next week. 


&& 


Short term...today through Sunday...hot weather continues for all 
but the coast of southwest Washington and northwest Oregon as a 
strong and sprawling upper level ridge extends from Texas through 
Oregon and into NE Pacific. This ridge will likely keep the marine 
layer too shallow for any appreciable cooling in the inland 
valleys...at least through Sunday and probably longer. 


Model 850 mb temperatures remain in the +20 to +22 degree c range...yielding 
temperatures well into the 90s for the inland valleys given full daytime 
sunshine through Sunday. Surface pressure gradients remain onshore... 
keeping the coast and adjacent coastal valleys much cooler with areas 
of night and morning low clouds clearing each afternoon Fri/Sat. 


A cold front moving across western Canada Sat/Sat night will likely 
be too far north and east to have much of an impact on the marine 
layer. In fact...high pressure building into interior British Columbia may shove 
part of the thermal low offshore...weakening onshore pressure 
gradients and causing Sunday to be nearly as hot as yesterday. 
Pushing the thermal low offshore may invite a southerly wind 
reversal/surge to push up the coast...but at this point it appears 
doubtful the resulting surge of marine air will be deep enough to 
have a large impact on inland temperatures. If it does...the best chance for 
a cooldown Monday would be near Eugene. The heat advisory remains in 
place for most inland areas through Sunday...will hold on to that 
though it may need to be extended into the night hours as relief will 
be slow to come inland. 


Will also need to watch an upper low forming off the California 
coast...which is expected to remain nearly stationary the next few 
days. This system may trigger afternoon and evening thunder as far 
north as the south Oregon Cascades this weekend...with some debris 
cloudiness clipping Lane County. Unless the upper low wobbles a 
little further north than presently expected...instability will be 
lacking for thunder in our Cascades this weekend. Kept mention of 
thunder out of the forecast through Sunday. Weagle 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Sunday night through Thursday...the extended period begins with high 
amplitude 500 mb Rex block over the eastern Pacific and or/Washington in weak 
trough or col separating southwestern U.S. Ridge and eastern Pacific/Gulf of Alaska 
ridge. Despite the weak troughiness...air mass remains warm with above 
average heights and northerly low level flow. Little change occurs in 
overall pattern into Tuesday. By Wednesday...block begins to break 
down with ridging to the north and Pacific cutoff making slow eastward 
progress toward central California cstln. Deterministic models and gefs members 
in good agreement through Tuesday...with differences thereafter 
mainly in amplitude of ridging over or/WA/wrn Canada and position of 
eastern Pacific cutoff. Despite the increasing uncertainty middle 
week...warm temperatures nearly certain /10-12 degree above normal/ but 
influence of eastern Pacific cutoff provides a chance of inland/mountain 
thunderstorms Tuesday-Thursday. Bright 


&& 


Aviation...widespread VFR next 24 hours at inland taf sites under 
stable westerly flow aloft. IFR stratus returned to the coast 
with ceilings below 1000 feet and occasional visible down to 2 sm. Should 
still see some marine stratus inland up the Columbia River tonight 
and could bring periods of MVFR ceilings to kkls and possibly kspb. 
The stratus does not look like it will reach the Portland metropolitan 
terminals. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR will persist for the next 24 hours. /26 


&& 


Marine...high pressure over the NE Pacific and thermal low pressure inland 
will continue to produce gusty northerly winds into the weekend. 
The strongest winds are expected to continue over the outer waters 
where a Small Craft Advisory continues until Sat morning. 
Advisory level winds over the inner waters have ended in the north 
but has persisted south of Cascade Head so will keep the Small 
Craft Advisory up through this evening. Thermal low pressure will 
move offshore this weekend with winds across all waters remaining 
below 20 knots into next week. Some models are showing a wind 
reversal occurring late sun at that looks reasonable. 


Expect periods of steep and choppy seas over the outer waters to 
continue into this weekend with combined seas of 7 to 8 feet and a 
dominate period around 8 seconds. Strong winds off of Vancouver 
Island will produce a building northwest swell this weekend that could 
push seas to near 10 feet. Seas will subside early next week to 
around 4 to 5 feet.
