NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
835 PM PST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis...an old frontal zone will linger over the Pacific northwest 
through Monday as a ridgee of high pressure moves inland. The front will 
shift NE some Monday night and Tuesday as a warm front...then a stronger 
frontal system will bring a quick shot of precipitation Tuesday night 
into Wednesday. This system will usher in a colder air mass and bring 
potential for some accumulating snow to the Cascade passes later Wednesday 
into Thursday. A quiet weather period appears to be in store late next 
week as upper level ridging builds over the Pacific northwest. Another system 
may bring bring precipitation at some point over the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...satellite derived precipitable water values continued 
to show a relatively moist air mass remaining offshore...with 
precipitable water values still just under an inch. A modest onshore 
flow with westerly 800 mb winds expected to remain on the order of 20 
kts overnight will continue to overrun an old baroclinic zone laid 
out across the forecast area. This will continue to generate rain at 
times especially over the terrain favored Cascades overnight. This evening 
rainfall rates were still as high as an inch in six hours in parts 
of the Oregon Cascades...but as the strength of the onshore flow 
weakens overnight and Monday so too will rainfall potenitial. Another 
mild night in store with dewpoints in the upper 40s and plenty of 
clouds to limit radiational cooling. 


Some minor tidal overflow was observed this afternoon as a high 
astronomical tide combined with higher flows on the coastal 
rivers. Low lying coastal areas near Willapa Bay...Astoria...Tillamook 
Bay...Depoe Bay...Waldport...and Florence...along with coastal 
stretches of Highway 101 near the coast will likely see some minor 
issues again. With similar tidal values tomorrow afternoon...it is 
expected that at least some of these locations will again see some 
minor overflow issues. 


Remainder of short term discussion unchanged... agreement amongst 
the forecast models is increasing that there will be another period of 
light precipitation late Monday into Tuesday...as a shortwave trough offshore 
reactivates the stalled baroclinic zone and lifts it northward 
through the region again as a weak warm front. Increased forecast probability of precipitation 
during this time period...but quantitative precipitation forecast appears to fairly limited. Another 
shortwave is modeled to push the boundary through as a fairly sharp 
cold front on Wednesday. It appears that there will be a burst of fairly 
heavy precipitation with this system...along with dropping snow 
levels. The timing is somewhat uncertain at this time. The 12z European model (ecmwf) 
model brings precipitation onto the coast beginning Tuesday afternoon and 
spreads inland overnight into Wednesday morning. The 12z GFS and NAM are 
about 6 hours slower...bringing most of the precipitation through during the 
day Wednesday. This system should bring decent accumulating snowfall to 
the Cascades down to the passes. Pyle 


&& 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows. Wednesday night 
through Sunday... expect lingering showers Wednesday night and Thursday behind 
the departing frontal passage earlier Wednesday. Expect additional light 
snowfall accumulations in the Cascades during this time. The snow 
level should be below the passes...possibly even into the Cascade 
foothills. Going into Thursday night and Friday...there are slight 
differences between GFS and European model (ecmwf) models. The GFS develops ridging 
over the Pacific northwest and keeps US dry through the rest of the week. The 
European model (ecmwf) has a weaker ridge and keeps it further offshore...allowing 
light showers to remain over the region into Friday. Forecast uncertainty 
increases further next weekend. The GFS is dropping a low pressure 
system into the interior Pacific northwest and brings a colder air mass. 
Meanwhile the ewmcw is closing the low off and keeping it 
offshore...which would result in a wetter and milder weekend. Will 
avoid adding to much detail to the forecast during this time 
period...and keep a chance of probability of precipitation through the weekend. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...moderate onshore flow continues today with abundant 
middle and high clouds and some rain showers remaining. VFR flight 
conditions for most locations with some pockets of local 
MVFR...particularly along the coast and in the south Willamette 
Valley. Rain generally continues to decrease with some lowering 
ceilings tonight...trending towards increasing areas of MVFR with 
local areas of IFR possible overnight. 


Kpdx and approaches...mostly VFR through this evening with 
showers. Expect ceilings to lower a bit overnight with MVFR 
conditions possible after 10z but expect VFR later Monday morning and 
afternoon. /Cullen /26 


&& 


Marine...winds will continue to ease overnight through Monday. 
Meanwhile...seas continue to run around 10 to 12 feet through much 
of the week. An approaching frontal system will turn winds 
southerly again late Monday or early Tuesday with the potential for Small 
Craft Advisory level winds Tuesday and Wednesday and increase seas back to 
around 15 feet. Seas likely finally drop below 10 feet by later Thursday or 
early Friday. Cullen
