NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
225 am PST sun Mar 1 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge with its axis out near 140w will be the 
dominant feature this week...producing northerly flow aloft across 
the Pacific northwest. A weak disturbance will move south in this 
flow today with mainly a few high clouds. A more substantial 
disturbance will move south along the Pacific northwest coast 
tonight. Its track will give the best chance of precipitation to the 
coastal waters and the coastal areas tonight. Clouds will decrease 
and showers dramatically decrease Monday as the system moves south. 
Then it looks pretty dry through the remainder of the week. A weak 
system is forecast to ride over the ridge and move off to the east 
around Thursday. The main effect at this point will be to turn the 
low level flow onshore and perhaps give a few clouds to the area. Any 
precipitation from this system is looking pretty iffy. 
&& 


Short term...the breezy offshore flow of Saturday was decreasing 
this morning as the northeast flow aloft on the north side of an 
upper low in California continued to move away. This offshore flow 
lowered dewpoints across the area...and has allowed temperatures to fall 
close to freezing in much of the area. 


Otherwise...the dominant feature affecting the Pacific northwest this 
week will be an upper ridge with its axis out near 140w. This is 
producing a northerly flow aloft across the Pacific northwest. 


A weak short wave will move south through the Pacific northwest today 
with mainly some higher clouds. A more substantial short wave will 
drop south along the b.C. Coast today and move south along the 
Washington and Oregon coasts tonight. The track will give the best 
chance of rain to the coastal waters and the coastal areas...with 
decreasing chances inland. This system will have some colder air with 
it for some snow in the mountains and possibly the foothills and 
Coast Range...but amounts will be pretty light as you go eastward and 
impacts will be limited. 


The system moves south of the area pretty early Monday for 
dramatically decreasing showers and for decreasing clouds. It then 
looks dry into the middle week period with mainly a few higher clouds at 
times as another weak upper disturbance or two moves through. 
Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Tuesday night through Saturday...extended forecast models continue to 
show March coming in like a Lamb for the Pacific northwest. The mean 
upper ridge position lingers where it has been much of this 
winter...over the NE Pacific and along the West Coast. This should 
keep the Pacific jet stream well to our north...as well as any 
chances of significant precipitation. Removed mention of any rain 
from the forecast Tuesday through Saturday. Conditions may become 
increasingly favorable for fog in the valleys...as most guidance 
pushes the upper ridge axis onshore late in the week. Otherwise 
expect a gradual return to above normal temperatures which may last 
into next weekend. Weagle 
&& 


Aviation...light offshore wind with VFR this morning. Will have 
pockets of fog...mainly in Cowlitz valley and coastal areas. Weak 
front approaching from the northwest will bring increasing clouds this 
afternoon. Will remain VFR...but ceilings will lower to MVFR after 02z 
along the coast...and inland after 05z. Ceilings will remain low tonight 
with occasional light rain and obscured higher terrain. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions today...with increasing middle and 
high clouds this afternoon. Will see increasing MVFR ceilings after 05z 
as front approaches from northwest. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...high pressure over the NE Pacific will be the dominant weather 
player this week. However...a weak front will drop southward across 
region tonight into Monday am. Not a lot of wind expected with 
front...but enough to pop 20 to 25 knots gusts over the outer 
waters...mainly off central Oregon coast. Will maintain Small Craft 
Advisory for that area. Seas mostly holding at 4 to 6 feet. 


Another weak front may push into the waters Thursday and possibly again 
next weekend...but winds will remain under 20 knots. Rockey. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds for late tonight to Monday am 
on outer coastal waters between Cascade Head and Florence.
