NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
939 am PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis...a warm frontal boundary will remain draped across 
southwest Washington and northwest Oregon today as moisture from the 
Pacific rides along the front. The associated cold front will move 
into southwest Washington and northwest Oregon tonight and move east 
of the area Thursday morning for continued rain and higher elevation 
snow. The associated strong surface low will approach Vancouver Island 
today then stall near Vancouver Island and weaken Thursday and 
Friday. The parent upper low or trough will dig south toward 
California Thursday afternoon and Thursday night before moving 
onshore and through the area Friday and Friday evening for more 
showers. Another significant frontal system is expected late Saturday 
and Saturday night. 
&& 


Short term...had decent snows in the north Cascade zones overnight 
and will continue the advisory through the day...with the snow level 
starting to rise later today. A frontal boundary remains draped over 
southwest Washington and a good part of northwest Oregon and is 
transitioning to a warm front ahead of the next low pressure system. 
Thus expect rain to continue in the valleys and snow in the mountains 
today...with the least coverage or amount down near Lane County. 


The next stronger cold front will be moving into our area tonight... 
and the models have some pretty decent precipitation amounts. It will 
not be enough to cause flooding...but it will be quite wet. Snow 
levels are slow to rise...so will continue the Snow Advisory through 
tonight but with a bit higher snow level...closer to 5000 feet. Thus 
it will begin raining tonight at the passes...but ski resort 
elevations could still get some decent amounts again tonight. 


The associated 995 mb low will approach Vancouver Island late today 
and tonight...then stall near Vancouver Island and slowly weaken 
through Thursday and Friday. This will produce enough gradient along 
our coast for gales in the coastal waters and fairly strong winds 
along the coastal strip. It looks like it will stay below warning 
criteria along the coastal strip...but some headlands may get close. 


We should see plenty of showers Thursday behind the cold front. Model 
Li values look a little weak for thunder but we should at least see 
some small hail. On Friday the main upper trough will be moving 
through and thunder chances look a bit better. Will address that this 
afternoon. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows...Friday night 
through Tuesday...expect cool and showery conditions for most of the 
long term forecast period. Post frontal showers lingering Thursday night and 
Friday as the upper level trough and associated instability pass over the 
region. There may be a bit of a break to start the weekend...but 
another front is push onshore late Sat or sun which should bring 
another round of more organized precipitation. The latest model trend 
is now toward building an upper level ridge over the Pacific northwest to start 
next week. It is still quite a way out...but recent trends in models 
give higher confidence early next week will be warmer and drier. 
&& 


Aviation...moist and dank today with little change. Warm front 
pushing into region will maintain widespread MVFR conditions today 
and tonight. S of ksle over interior...ceilings running more towards 
lower VFR this am...but ceilings there will gradually lower to MVFR as 
rain increases. Mountains continually obscured...so not great day for 
flying. South winds will gradually increase later today into 
tonight...with winds gusting 35 to 45 knots along the coast and over 
Coast Range after 02z. 


Kpdx and approaches...little change today...as MVFR with brief bouts 
of VFR ceilings. Rain will increase in afternoon and especially this 
evening. Expect MVFR conditions to persist tonight. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...a developing 990 mb low pressure will slowly move towards 
Vancouver isl over the next 36 hours. This will result in a warm 
front lifting NE across the waters today and this evening... with 
southerly gale force gusts developing...mainly S of Tillamook. 


The trailing cold front will then push towards the coast this 
evening...causing a coastal jet to intensify with solid south 35 to 
45 knots wind gusts likely within 20 nm of the coast. Gale force winds 
should end around daybreak Thursday...but will keep the keep the current 
timing associated with the gale headline as is...in case this system 
slows down a few hours. Another approaching front Saturday afternoon 
and evening will likely cause south wind gusts to increase into the 
30 to 35 knots range. 


Seas running 10 to 12 feet this am...but with increasing winds later 
today and tonight...choppy wind driven seas will build. Will see seas 
build to 15 to 17 feet tonight and hold into Thursday am. Seas will 
gradually subside on Thursday and Thursday evening. Rockey. 
&& 




Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...Winter Weather Advisory until 5 PM PDT this afternoon above 
3500 feet and until 6 am PDT Thursday morning above 5000 
feet for northern Oregon Cascades. 


Washington...Winter Weather Advisory until 5 PM PDT this afternoon above 
3500 feet and until 6 am PDT Thursday morning above 5000 
feet for South Washington Cascades. 


Pz...Gale Warning for this afternoon through Thursday am on all
