NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
940 am PDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis...strong upper level high pressure will bring the hottest 
day of the Summer and likely in the past several years. Friday will 
be similar with only gradual cooling expected through the weekend and 
the start of next week. 




&& 


Short term...today through Sunday...hot. 


Not much change to the forecast this morning. Visible satellite shows 
clear skies across the region. The latest National Weather Service msas mslp analysis the 
thermal trough having drifted back along the Oregon coast 
overnight...which is generating some light offshore. The 12z ksle 
sounding came back with an 850 mb temperature of 23.15 c...which is only a 
hair short of the all time record high for this date. See no reason 
why we would not realize our full heating potential with very good 
mixing expected...so the current forecast of 100 to 105 for much of the 
interior lowlands looks to be quite realistic. This means that today 
will very likely end up being the warmest day of the past several 
years for many locations. Weak onshore flow will develop at the 
surface this afternoon as the thermal trough drifts back inland in 
response to warming over the interior...which should limit 
temperatures along the lower Columbia River just a bit relative to 
areas farther south in the Willamette Valley. An excessive heat 
warning is in effect for the Willamette Valley...Columbia River 
gorge...and Upper Hood River Valley through Friday evening. A heat 
advisory a heat advisory covers the Coast Range...Oregon Cascade 
foothills and the lower Columbia region. 


Onshore flow does increase ever so slightly Friday so temperatures 
still look to cool a couple degrees on Friday...but not enough that 
very many will notice. Increasing cloud cover and onshore flow over 
the weekend should allow high temperatures to cool several more 
degrees each day. Temperatures will remain warmest across the 
southern half of the Willamette Valley and in the central Columbia 
River gorge through the weekend due to these locations remaining the 
most removed from the cooler marine air filtering up the lower 
Columbia River valley. As a result...middle to upper 90s may still be 
plaguing these areas through the weekend. Pyle/neuman 




&& 




Long term...Sunday night through Wednesday...models generally agree 
the area will experience a cooling trend through midweek as 500mb 
heights lower and we return to a more typical northwesterly flow 
pattern. This should result in morning clouds increasing along the 
coast and in the lower Columbia River valley. 


Differences continue in the timing and amplitude of an incoming 
trough towards the middle to end of next week. There is a chance 
some middle to upper level moisture and instability ahead of this 
feature could trigger some showers and thunderstorms...particularly 
over the Cascades early next week...but confidence remains low. The 
inherited forecast captured this well so few changes were made. 
/Neuman 




&& 


Fire weather...a very strong ridge of high pressure continues to 
dominate the Pacific northwest today...bringing extremely hot and 
dry conditions to the region. Meanwhile a thermal trough remains 
west of the Cascade crest...enhancing middle-level instability for 
the Westside. The resulting middle-level Haines 6 conditions are 
expected to remain in place through at least Friday evening. 
Excessive heat warnings are in place for The Lowlands...where 
afternoon temperatures are expected to reach the 100 to 105 degree 
range today...with similar heat expected Friday. In addition to 
the hot daytime temperatures...expect poor overnight humidity 
recoveries near and above a thermal belt that has formed between 
2500 and 4000 feet due to strong subsidence. Fuels are also very 
dry...so expect critical fire weather conditions to be in place 
through the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions expected to continue throughout northwest Oregon 
and SW Washington through Thursday night. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions for the next 24 hours. 


&& 


Marine...main change for this morning was to extend the Small 
Craft Advisory for hazardous seas through daybreak tomorrow 
morning. Have taken this first step in what will likely be a 
longer extension as pressure gradients will remain somewhat tight 
across the outer waters this afternoon and promote development of 
fresh swell drifting across the central Oregon waters. It will be 
marginal for square seas but certainly too close given our limited 
data. Winds in general will be lighter today with the inner waters 
also a bit marginal for the small craft Wind Advisory criteria. 
They should increase again later tonight and Friday as the surface 
thermal trough sets up a little further inland than the past 
couple days. No broad changes in the pressure pattern through the 
weekend. This will keep north to northwest winds blowing over the waters 
through the weekend...with a climatological tendency to strengthen 
in the late afternoon and overnight hours and weaken in the 
morning hours each day. Expect to see winds gusting into small 
craft range off and on through the weekend.
