NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland 
823 PM PDT Friday may 22 2015 


Synopsis...an upper low off the north Oregon coast this evening 
dives south tonight and Saturday...while another upper low settles 
over Vancouver Island. The marine layer will deepen tonight and 
Saturday. The onshore flow weakens a little Sunday. The upper low 
moves over central Washington Memorial Day then shifts east Tuesday. 
A gradual warming trend is expected middle to late next week. 


&& 


Update...some showers are lingering over northwest Oregon and SW Washington 
this evening as an upper level shortwave trough moves over the Oregon 
coast...and general upper level trough remains over the western 
states. The showers are moving north to south and decreasing with the 
loss of daytime heating. Extensive marine layer continues and expect 
cloudy and drizzly conditions late tonight into Saturday morning. 
Only made minor changes to probability of precipitation and weather with the evening update. 
Tj 


Previous short term discussion...complex large-scale pattern will 
continue over the Pacific northwest through the short term. At 20z 
water vapor loop showed a large low pressure area extending from 
southern Oregon to Southern California. Another upper low was 
centered over the central British Columbia coast...and a third but 
more subtle low circulation was noted off the S Washington coast. The 
forecast area lies in a broad deformation area...with east flow aloft 
over the far south and S-SW flow aloft in the far north. Bulk of the 
moisture and lift was over eastern Oregon. Krtx dual-pol Doppler radar 
continues to show scattered precipitation activity. Between 19z and 20z 
several lightning strikes were noted near Bennett Pass. 


Not anticipating any thunderstorms late this afternoon through the 
evening as a gradual switch to northwesterly middle-level flow develops. Not 
expecting much in the way of late-afternoon or early-evening clearing 
today...as depicted in the hi-res WRF-arw model. At 21z the kttd-kdls 
gradient was 4.7 mb...and the more synoptic koth-kgeg gradient was 
11.7 mb. These values suggest substantial onshore low-level 
flow...which is readily apparent in visible imagery. 


The small upper level circulation seen in water vapor off the S Washington 
coast this morning gradually sinks south tonight. GFS picks up on 
this feature and develops a closed low over northern cal by Sat afternoon. 
Meanwhile...another upper low along the British Columbia coast slowly 
drifts south Sat. However...the main weather driver for the area 
tonight and Sat will be in the lower levels. Surface high pressure 
strengthens over the NE Pacific tonight and Sat...inducing stronger 
onshore flow. Model soundings for the Willamette Valley valid 12z Sat 
yield cloud tops to nearly 5000 feet mean sea level. Am a little more confident 
there will be drizzle along the coast and west slopes of the Coast 
Range and into the Willapa Hills of SW Washington late tonight and Sat 
morning. NAM time-height section for kpdx shows 90 percent or greater relative humidity 
up to around 850 mb Sat afternoon. Have increased sky cover in the 
grids...especially tonight and Sat. 


Model soundings and time-height sections valid sun indicate lower 
cloud tops and a little weaker onshore gradients. Thus...should see 
more afternoon clearing...especially in the south part of the 
forecast area. GFS and European model (ecmwf) in general agreement Monday with the upper 
low near the south end of Vancouver Island at 12z...then over northern Washington 
by 00z Tuesday. European model (ecmwf) continues to be a little more east with it compared to 
the GFS. Cyclonic 500 mb flow in conjunction with stronger onshore 
low-level flow will result in a deeper marine layer Memorial Day 
morning. The NAM time-height section for kpdx bears this out. Have 
added a mention of drizzle Sun night and Monday morning to account for 
this. Weishaar 


Long term...Monday night through Friday...by Monday night an upper 
level low pressure system will be sliding generally through the 
region...though confidence in the precise timing and track remain 
relatively low. Models seem to be clustering on a solution that 
drops the low along or east of the Cascades as it moves south from 
Canada...which will provide for plenty of marine clouds but keep 
most precipitation in the higher terrain of the Cascades. 
Then...shortwave ridging will likely begin to build over the region 
for dry conditions and warming...particularly for the second half of 
the week. While model spread remains somewhat large with respect to 
how high heights will rise...high temperatures could climb into the 
lower 80s for the interior on Friday. Cullen 
&& 


Aviation...a variety of flight conditions will continue tonight 
as scattered showers gradually dissipate. Mostly a mix of VFR and 
MVFR ceilings will persist this evening... then expect conditions to 
lower towards a mixture of MVFR/IFR ceilings between 05z-07z Sat. 
Areas of drizzle possible between 10z-19z Saturday morning. Should 
see ceilings lift to VFR after 21z...with a few sunbreaks possible 
afterwards. 


Kpdx and approaches...MVFR ceilings will continue through Sat. Periods 
of drizzle likely to impact the terminal between 10z-17z Saturday. 
Ceilings should lift to VFR after 21z. /27 


&& 


Marine...a persistent weather pattern will continue to bring 
benign conditions to the waters through early next week. Northwest winds 
are expected to generally remain below advisory level with high 
pressure well offshore. A fresh swell of 5 to 6 feet will also continue 
out of the west-northwest.

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories...
