NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
227 PM PDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Synopsis...broad upper level low pressure will slow sag south over the 
region through Friday...bringing continued chances for showers and 
isolated thunderstorms. The weather will improve on Sat as the upper 
low finally begins to slide east and a shortwave ridge moves through 
the Pacific northwest. Another low is expected to move through on sun...bringing 
more shower chances mainly to northern portions of the forecast area. 
Then warmer and drier weather is on tap for the first half of next 
week as upper level high pressure over the NE Pacific begins to push into the 
Pacific northwest. 


&& 


Short term...a broad upper level low remains centered over far 
SW British Columbia this afternoon. The low will gradually drop 
southward into Washington and then Oregon tonight and Friday... 
bringing continued cool and showery weather through the end of the 
week. The most significant shower activity today has been over the 
higher terrain of the Cascades and Coast Range so far...but based on 
the latest National Weather Service Doppler radar imagery...a batch is now beginning to 
drift into the western portions of the valley. So far no thunder has 
been detected in our forecast area today...but there were a considerable 
number of strikes recorded in northwest Washington earlier where the coldest 
air aloft resides. Cannot rule out an isolated strike or two over the 
far northern portions of the forecast area later this afternoon or early 
evening. Showers should taper off later this evening and 
overnight...but expect there will still be some light activity as 
shortwave energy rotates around the base of the upper trough. 
Overnight lows should again be on the chilly side...potentially a 
degree or two cooler than we had last night. 


The upper level cold pool will move directly over northwest Oregon on Friday. 
This will allow for a little deeper instability and increase the 
likelihood that we see a few thundershowers mixed in with the shower 
during the afternoon. The upper low will begin to slide east Friday 
night into Sat. Expect a few showers to linger as upper level energy 
rotates through on the backside of the trough. 


Conditions look to improve Sat as the upper low moves further east 
and a shortwave ridge moves through the Pacific northwest. Expect more sun and 
highs over the interior lowlands back into the middle 70s. However...it 
appears that another shortwave trough will dive south out of British 
Columbia on Sunday. This is expected to bring more clouds and shower 
chances during the day sun...particularly over the northern half of 
the forecast area. Pyle 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday. A shortwave disturbance 
will bring a threat for showers and increasing clouds late 
Sunday into early Monday morning as an upper level trough drifts 
over the Pacific northwest. 12z extended models have been showing 
notable run to run variability...but hint at brief upper level 
ridging late Tuesday...before the upper level flow becomes more 
zonal by Wednesday. Overall...with only weaker disturbances passing 
near the area...heights gradually will rise to support temperatures 
closer to seasonal normals and generally expect drier and warmer 
again for the middle of the week. /27 
&& 


Aviation...expect mostly VFR conditions the next 24 hours. 
Scattered showers continue through this evening. Will also see a 
slight chance of thunderstorms through around 03z. MVFR ceilings 
possible early Friday morning across the interior as stratus back 
builds off the Cascades...but confidence is low. Will likely see 
another round of afternoon showers and a slight chance of 
thunderstorms Friday. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR the next 24 hours. Will see scattered 
showers through this evening...with a slight chance of 
thunderstorms through around 03z. A few hours of MVFR ceilings 
possible after 12z...but confidence is low. Will see another round 
of afternoon/evening showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms 
Friday. /64 


&& 


Marine...low pressure aloft will continue to bring showers and a 
slight chance of thunderstorms to the waters through Friday. 
Surface high pressure over the northeast Pacific and a weak 
thermal trough over southern Oregon could bring marginal Small 
Craft Advisory gusts late Friday. A weak front looks to move 
across the waters on Sunday and could bring a brief period of 
southerly winds...but winds expected to remain under 15 knots. High 
pressure looks to rebuild over the waters late Sunday with thermal 
low pressure strengthening early next week. This will bring the 
typical Summer pattern of gusty northerly winds. 


Mild winds will allow seas to continue to fall to around 5 feet 
late tonight. Seas expected to remain between 5 to 7 feet through 
the forecast period. However...as winds increase next week we 
could see period of steep and choppy conditions...especially over 
the central Oregon waters. /64
