NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
243 am PDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Synopsis...a cold front along the central Washington coast will 
slowly move southward into southwest Washington and extreme northwest 
Oregon today...and into the remainder of northwest Oregon tonight for 
a little light rain or showers. The southern part of the associated 
trailing upper low will slowly extend into southwest Washington and 
northwest Oregon Wednesday for more showers...and linger over the 
Pacific northwest Thursday. Energy on the west or back side of the 
upper low will drop down along the coast Thursday night then swing 
inland mainly south of our forecast area Friday. However...the colder 
air aloft will be more over our area Friday for a greater chance of 
afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. The low will move 
off to the east this weekend for improving weather...though another 
system is possible early next week. 
&& 


Short term...satellite imagery and National Weather Service Doppler 
radar show a front along the central Washington coast early this 
morning. The upper clouds with this front have sheared off to the 
east of the Cascades. The lower level clouds are slowly moving 
southward. The models show it slowly moving into southwest Washington 
and extreme northwest Oregon today...then across the remainder of 
northwest Oregon tonight. Infrared satellite imagery shows a jet 
streak/short wave out around 45n/135w that the models move through 
the Pacific northwest this afternoon and evening. This appears to be 
the feature that will keep the front somewhat active as it moves into 
our forecast area. Precipitation will not be a lot with this 
front...perhaps a quarter inch on the north coast and in the coastal 
mountains...up to a tenth in the North Valley...and one or two tenths 
in the Cascades...with lesser amounts in the south. 


On Wednesday the southern part of the associated upper low extends 
southward into our forecast area. This should produce some decent 
showers especially during the first half or so of the day as a decent 
short wave moves through. There may be enough cooling aloft for a 
slight chance of thunder as well...and model lifted indices support 
this idea. 


The upper trough lingers and sags a little farther south on Thursday 
for some more showers...and a another short wave moves through as 
well. There may be another chance of thunder as well in the afternoon 
and evening. 


Temperatures will stay below normal through the period...hovering on one 
side or the other of 70 in the north...and a few degrees warmer near 
Eugene. 


Snow levels will be lowering to possibly as low as 6000 to 7000 feet 
around Mount Hood northward...the lowest we have seen since Spring. 
Tolleson 


Climate factoid...given the high and low temperatures observed so far 
today and no drastic temperature changes are expected in the next 
couple of hours...2015 will go down as the warmest meteorological 
Summer...June...July and August...on record for Portland...Salem and 
Eugene. Records go back approximately 120 years for Eugene and 
Salem...and 75 years for Portland. Will put a graphic comparing this 
year to the previous records on our social media sites hopefully 
before 10 PM. Links to our social media sites can be reached at the 
bottom of the afd or in the upper right hand corner of our homepage. 
/Neuman 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday. The models are coming 
together with the upper low dropping southward on Thursday night and 
Friday. The initial main energy drops south along the coast and then 
swings inland mainly to our south. But then we will be under a 
broader portion of the cold pool aloft for Friday afternoon and 
evening...and expect some diurnal showers and possibly a few 
thunderstorms to develop around the area. The upper low moves off to 
the east over the weekend that should bring some improving weather to 
the area. The models suggest the next system could arrive sometime 
early next week. Tolleson 
&& 


Aviation...continued VFR conditions across the region at this hour 
as middle level clouds appear to have kept a decent temperature/dew 
point spread and thus prevent low stratus from forming at the coast. 
Still looking like Post cold frontal onshore wind will bring an IFR 
deck around 18-23z today to kast and a couple hours later to konp. 
Inland sites should not drop lower than a high end MVFR at worst and 
probably remain VFR with ceilings around 035. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR although ceilings clouds lower to 035 as a weak 
cold front crosses the field 20-23z. /Jbonk 
&& 


Marine...winds are running 10 to 15 knots across the waters per 
rapidscat and ascat wind passes. Have anticipated a bit of a coastal 
jet developing this morning with the primary focus along the northern 
Oregon and southern Washington coast. Winds at Clatsop Spit sensor are running 
around 15 knots and have over achieved most models thus far tonight. The 
hrrr seems to have a good handle on it and will follow it's winds and 
minimal coastal jet for the next several hours. As such...have issued 
a Small Craft Advisory for winds covering the northern inner waters. 
Expect winds will gust to around 25 knots. 


Those winds may exacerbate the already somewhat steep seas and bring 
conditions long the mouth of the Columbia up to 10 feet. Will keep an 
eye on it as only have medium confidence. Otherwise...seas will stay 
in the 7 to 9 feet range with periods 11 to 13 seconds through middle-day 
tomorrow. 


A surface low over the Gulf of Alaska...just offshore of Yakutat is 
generating a northerly fetch that will bring a brief period of 10 feet 
swell to the outer Oregon waters Tuesday night and early Wednesday. 


Recent model runs have backed off on the upper ridge building over 
the region heading into the weekend. Still expecting northerly winds, 
but the surface thermal low over the northern California and southern or coast will be 
weaker and may not even push very far over Oregon. Have kept the 
northerlies for now. /Jbonk 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds from 7 am this morning to 4 PM 
PDT this afternoon for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater 
Washington to Cascade Head or out 10 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar until 9 am PDT 
this morning. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar from 5 PM 
this afternoon to 10 PM PDT this evening.
