NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
237 am PDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis...after a few light showers today...steadier rain will 
shift over the region this evening and linger into Friday morning as 
a cold front slowly pushes through the region. Expect showers 
containing brief heavy rain...small hail and possibly a clap or two 
of thunder to bubble up Friday afternoon. Showers should quickly 
become isolated during the evening hours for those trick or treating. 
Hit or miss showers may linger into Saturday...before light rain 
spreads back across our northern zones Sunday. Another wet system 
appears on tap for late Monday and Tuesday of next week. 


&& 


Short term...today through Sunday...water vapor satellite imagery 
reveals a large digging shortwave trough near 140w. Ahead of this 
system...an old baroclinic zone is being re-energized and lifting 
back northward across the area in the form of a warm front. This 
system has tapped into precipitable water values in excess of 1 to 
1.25 inches. Light rain showers have broken out across western 
Oregon and Washington early this morning...but have only resulted in 
a couple hundredths of an inch of rain or less early this morning. 
With cloud tops continuing to cool to our south...expect off and on 
light showers to continue across most of the area today with perhaps 
a more extended break in the rain towards Lane and Linn counties 
later this morning. A more consolidated region of rain is currently 
lifting northward off the north Oregon and South Washington 
coast...a prelude of things to come tonight. 


A cold front currently near 130w will push eastward towards the coast 
this afternoon and evening. With good low and middle level 
support...expect a south-southwest to north-northeast band of rain to 
shift eastward towards the coast today...before pushing into the 
interior this evening and overnight. One to two inches of rain 
appear likely along the coast and across the higher terrain...with 
rain totals in the 0.50 to 1.00 range for many valley locations. 
This front may have a tendency to slow down late tonight into Friday 
morning more than current model guidance suggests due to a 120 knots 
jet digging down the backside of the upper level trough. 


Once the steadier rain shifts east of the region Friday...a much 
cooler and unstable airmass will spread into the region. Expect 
showers to pop in the afternoon hours...although this will be 
somewhat dependent on how quickly the aforementioned front shifts 
east of the area. Brief heavy rain and small hail will be the main 
threats with any showers that bubble up. Ocean temperatures certainly 
support thunder near the coast...and depending on clearing over the 
interior...a couple rumbles of thunder will be possible in the 
afternoon. Any shower activity over the interior should become much 
more isolated Friday evening as the lower atmosphere stabilizes. 
This should result in most trick or treaters staying dry Friday 
evening. 


The aforementioned cold front will allow snow levels to lower into 
the 4500 to 5000 feet range late Friday into Saturday. As the upper 
level trough digs...low level flow will weaken with this system. 
This should result in limited orographic precipitation enhancement 
Friday night into Saturday. As a result...snow amounts are expected 
to stay under Winter Weather Advisory criteria. Nonetheless...higher 
passes like Santiam Pass and Willamette passes should still see 
enough snow to at least impact travel off and on Friday evening into 
early Saturday...even if accumulations remain relatively light. 


A weak warm front spreading eastward may bring light rain to our 
forecast area late Saturday night into Sunday...especially across our 
northwestern zones. /Neuman 


&& 


Long term...Sunday night through Wednesday...little in the way of 
change in the extended...models seem to converging on the idea of a 
consolidated...but transient front bringing a good shot of rain to 
the area late Monday into Tuesday. Low end categorical to likely probability of precipitation 
were maintained for this period. However...the brunt of the quantitative precipitation forecast looks 
to remain across the olympic peninsula and points northward. With 
zonal flow to follow...probability of precipitation were kept a bit above climatology in the far 
extended. /Neuman 


&& 


Aviation...overall VFR conditions early this morning will 
gradually lower the next few hours as rain moves north over the 
area. The only exception is for local IFR/LIFR visible and ceilings in 
the central and south Willamette Valley through 14-16z this 
morning. Local MVFR/IFR conditions are possible for the north 
Willamette Valley 12z-16z today as well. Surface low pressure 
deepens off the north Oregon coast and will induce a moderate 
pressure gradient across the Cascades with east wind gusts 25 to 
30 knots possible at kttd through 21z. Expect lighter easterly winds 
at kpdx. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions persist until a warm front 
nears the terminal by 12z. MVFR/IFR ceilings around 1500-2500 feet will 
be possible through 16-17z this morning. Breezy east winds 
increase after 14z...with gusts 15-20 knots possible. /27 


&& 


Marine...a warm front will push across the coastal waters this 
morning...quickly followed by the associated cold front tonight. 
Southeast winds will gradually back to southerly later this morning and 
increase with gusts 25 to 30 knots expected. The Small Craft Advisory for winds 
remains in effect through early this evening. Winds quiet down 
behind the front by Friday...turning northerly by Saturday. 
Winds remain below Small Craft Advisory criteria into the weekend. 


Combined seas may briefly touch near 10 feet as winds peak this 
morning but feel it will be brief and more localized in nature. 
The next upper low may send another push of seas above Friday 
afternoon and evening and perhaps a stronger system Tue/Wed.
