NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
932 am PDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Synopsis...a cold front at the coast this morning will move inland 
today...crossing the Cascades by late today. Showers will decrease 
tonight as the parent upper trough moves east as well. Weak higher 
pressure will move in Sunday for generally dry weather on 
Easter...except some moisture may brush the far north coast zones. 
The next front will become north south oriented Sunday night and 
stall off the coast as energy digs toward California for more mostly 
dry weather...but then move onshore Monday and Tuesday for more rain 
or showers. The remainder of next week looks unsettled as more 
precipitation moves in at times. && 


Morning update...quite a bit of dry air below 700 mb (10k feet or so) 
on the morning Salem sounding but lift from incoming modest 
negatively tilted trough and upper jet is beginning to saturate the 
lower levels. Likely some sprinkles or light rain ahead of the main 
frontal precipitation which is now nearing the west side of the 
valley. The best dynamics graze the northwest corner of the area where more 
moderate rain will fall. The main band of precipitation is not very long 
lasting and dry air inland will continue to limit precipitation totals...so 
like the occasional rain wording today with transition to showers 
this afternoon/evening as it will not be a huge soaker inalnd. 
Subsidence retuns quickly behind the front and will limit shower 
activity later tonight...so not a whole lot of shower activity behind 
this front again with orographically favored areas in the north 
standing the best chance. /Kmd 


&& 


Short term...cold front was seen on satellite about 200 Michigan offshore 
early Sat morning...making steady progress eastward and on track to 
reach the coast late this morning. Clouds mainly middle and low level 
with the front...matching the model cross sections suggesting 
moisture generally below 700mb. While moisture is on the shallow 
side...the front itself appears moderately strong and is synched 
with a shortwave aloft providing well timed lift. Will keep probability of precipitation 
high today for the frontal passage although the duration may be on 
the short side. Satellite shows showers are active behind the 
front...and initially late today into this evening low level flow is 
onshore favoring showers especially for the orographically favored Cascades 
and Coast Range. 


As a surface high builds in late tonight and sun...and an initially 
flat upper ridge moves across will see dry weather return along with 
warmer temperatures again for sun. The pattern amplifies Sun night and Monday 
as the next trough in a progressive pattern digs offshore and the 
downstream ridge over the interior western states builds. As the 
flow over the Pacific northwest backs to the south-southwest middle and upper level 
moisture expected to increase. Model soundings suggest air mass at 
best marginally unstable...and with dynamics digging the trough S 
prefer to limit probability of precipitation out ahead of the front Monday to chance category 
inland...but higher along the coast as a front and shortwave 
approach late in the day. SW onshore flow coupled with falling 
heights aloft point towards cooler marine air pushing back in Monday. 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Monday night through Thursday...flow continues to amplify Sunday 
night and this will Orient the cold front offshore more north to 
south...thus any precipitation will remain well offshore Sunday 
night. The cold front finally gets a shove as the upper jet noses 
into the area. Precipitation is mainly tied to the front...but with 
the marginally unstable SW flow...models show that there could be 
some showers in the afternoon mainly for the Cascades...as middle level 
lapse rates hover in the 6 to 7 degree/km range. Instability parameters 
are not that impressive...so thunder potential looks low at this 
time. 


Looks like Tuesday and Wednesday will be characterized by cool and damp 
conditions as the deep upper low migrates across the Pacific northwest and into 
the northern rockies. After the first large upper trough clears late 
Tuesday night and maybe a break in showers Wednesday...another deep 
upper low will spread several waves of shower activity through the 
area for the latter half of the week.. /kmd 
&& 


Aviation...Pacific cold front approaching the coast early this 
morning. Precipitation has reached the coast with low VFR to MVFR ceilings in 
the 2500 to 3500 feet range. Rain will spread to inland taf sites 
around 18z with occasional MVFR ceilings. NAM relative humidity fields at 925 mb 
imply widespread MVFR ceilings with and behind the front this 
afternoon and evening. This maybe overdone especially behind the 
front. High pressure builds over the region overnight so could see 
patches of low stratus or fog Sun morning. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR prevailing through about 20z. Then 
occasional MVFR ceilings around 2500-3000 feet through 00z or so. 
Expect VFR overnight. 


&& 


Marine...a strong low pressure system moving into the Alaska 
Panhandle will push a cold front across the waters today which 
will bring Small Craft Advisory winds over all waters through the 
day. Some occasional gusts in the 30-35 knots range possible near the 
front...which should push ashore by late morning. Winds will 
diminish late this afternoon across the central Oregon waters and 
across the north this evening. 


A large westerly swell train will follow the front tonight into 
sun. Seas will rapidly increase to 17 to 20 feet at 16 seconds when 
the swell arrives around 11 PM tonight...and peaking through 5 am 
sun. Seas will then gradually subside through Sun 
afternoon...diminishing to around 15 feet Sun night...and to 10 feet 
early Tuesday. 


A high surf advisory continues for Sat night through Sun morning 
for the South Washington and north Oregon coasts. It appears the 
central coast will also meet criteria based on potential 
impacts...so will issue a high surf advisory for that area. All 
individuals along the beaches should exercise caution this 
weekend. 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories...
