Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:44 am PST on November 27, 2014


... Unseasonably mild weather to give way to much colder
temperatures and possible low elevation snow this weekend...

For the past several days... southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon have been experiencing record setting warmth. However... a
major weather pattern change is on the way. A sharp cold front is
expected to move through the region from the north on Friday and
Friday evening. Snow levels will be high initially... but will
fall sharply behind the cold frontal passage. Post frontal
showers may fall as a mix of rain and snow down to the valley
floor at times Friday night and Saturday. Precipitation is
expected to end by Saturday night. Gusty offshore flow is then
expected to develop Saturday night and Sunday. This offshore flow
will usher in frigid conditions as it pulls in air from an Arctic
air mass on the east side of the Cascades.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
950 am PST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Synopsis...a weak cold front will push slowly inland today. The 
front will then stall over south-central Oregon tonight and Friday. This 
front will begin to lift northward again early Friday. Another stronger 
cold front will move S through the region late Friday into Sat. This 
front will usher in much colder weather. Snow levels will fall 
rapidly Friday night and Sat...with a rain/snow mix a possibility for 
the interior lowlands. High pressure over the interior northwest will turn the 
flow offshore by sun for dry and cold weather. Another system coming 
up from the S sometime early next week will attempt to spread some 
precipitation up over the cold air mass left over from the weekend. 


&& 


Morning update...very few changes were made to the early morning 
forecast package...as it appears to be tracking well. 


The 12z Salem sounding was notable in showing a bit of elevated 
instability...with about 150-200 j/kg of skinny cape due the mild and 
moist air mass between 850-700 mb. Sure enough...there are sporadic 
lightning strikes being detected near the south Oregon coast. It 
appears the best instability should remain there...though it would 
not be a complete surprise to see a stray lightning strike or two 
south of Salem today. 12z NAM bufr soundings continue to show skinny 
cape into Friday...when there may be a slightly better chance of 
thunder along/ahead as the vigorous cold front provides a bit of 
extra lift. There is also some fairly decent shear within this area 
of conditional instability. Have not added this to the forecast 
yet...but we may add a slight chance of thunder Friday with the 
afternoon package if subsequent model runs continue to show this. 


As far as the potential for low elevation snow later Friday night 
through Sat evening...previous discussion below continues to reflect 
current thinking...so no changes were made. Weagle 


/prev disc issued 327 am PST Thursday Nov 27 2014/ 


Short term...today through Saturday...breezy southerly winds ahead 
of an approaching cold front are keeping exceptionally mild 
conditions in place across southwest Oregon and northwest Oregon 
this morning. In fact...the temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s being 
observed across much of the region at current are very close to the 
record daily high temperatures for the last week of November. However...the 
period of mild weather that we have been experiencing over the past 
few days will be coming to an end very shortly. 


The cold front approaching the coast this morning is not terribly 
impressive. Looking at the latest infrared satellite imagery...it is 
apparent that the upper level front and associated moisture has moved 
out ahead of the surface frontal boundary. The surface front can be 
made out on satellite just offshore around buoy 29. With only shallow 
moisture remaining and little in the way of forcing aloft...the 
associated precipitation that is moving onshore is definitely on the 
patchier side. The rain has become a bit steadier over the past few 
hours along the north coast and Coast Range...but most sites are only 
picking up a few hundredths of an inch of rain per hour. Still... 
expect most locations will see a decent steady rain as the front 
pushes onshore this morning and then moves inland through the day. 
The front will eventually stall over southern and central Oregon 
later this afternoon and this evening. 


The other feature of interest that we are watching this morning is a 
persistent stationary baroclinic zone that is currently draped over 
British Columbia and far northern Washington. An upper level trough 
will drive this boundary southward Friday and Friday night as a sharp cold 
front. At the same time...the stalled front over central Oregon is 
forecast to push northward again Friday morning. Between these two frontal 
boundaries...expect rainfall to steadily increase as the day 
progresses Friday. As the sharp cold front from the north dives 
through the region later Friday and Friday night...a much colder air mass 
aloft will move into the region. 


The parent upper level trough will swing into the region from the 
north on Sat to provide some upper level support for Post frontal 
shower activity...while low level onshore flow should provide 
additional moisture to keep showers going through much of the day. 
Based on model 850mb temperatures and 1000-500 mb thickness values...it 
appears that there is the potential for a rain/snow mix to affect the 
interior lowlands at times on Sat. The temperature and thickness indicators 
are only marginal and there is some uncertainty amongst the models 
just how cold the air mass will be...so confidence is not all that 
high that the interior lowlands will see any significant flakes. At 
any rate...with the mild temperatures we have seen over the past few days it 
is unlikely that Road surfaces will be able to cool fast enough for 
there to be major travel concerns. Pyle 




Long term...Saturday night through Wednesday...most guidance 
suggests the upper trough axis responsible for saturdays showers will 
be moving across the Cascades Sat night... with any lingering showers 
coming to end overnight. Expect some clearing Sat night as cold high 
pressure builds down from British Columbia...with low temperatures likely 
getting well into the 20s for most spots. With high pressure 
strengthening east of the Cascades...expect strong east winds to ramp 
up through The Gorge Sunday morning and persist for much of the 
period through Wednesday...with breezy conditions spilling into the 
Portland/Vancouver metropolitan. Monday may be a brief break from the winds 
as a system passes by to our north. 


Meanwhile...a disturbance from the Aleutians is expected to cut off 
from the main Pacific jet and settle off the California coast by 
Sunday...where it will likely linger for a couple days. There is a 
chance this system could come close enough to spread some precipitation 
northward into our forecast area early next week. If this 
occurs...there may be some light freezing rain in portions of the 
Willamette Valley with some snow or light freezing rain in The 
Gorge. Cutoff lows such as this one are notoriously difficult to 
forecast...as models struggle with them in the extended forecast 
period. Where this upper low GOES will dictate the weather through 
midweek...but temperatures are expected to slowly moderate Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Weagle 


&& 


Aviation...generally a mix of IFR to VFR conditions along the 
coast...and VFR over the interior lowlands. Frontal boundary 
expected to weaken and stall over the interior today...with plenty 
of low-level moisture. Thus...expect mainly MVFR or lower 
conditions across the area through tonight. Higher terrain...such 
as the Oregon Coast Range...SW Washington Willapa Hills and the Cascades 
will remain obscured throughout the period. Expect precipitation 
intensity to increase overnight into Friday morning. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions as of 16z...but still expect 
MVFR to be the predominant category after 18z. Little change in 
overall flight category this afternoon through tonight. 12z Salem 
upper air sounding and model soundings for kpdx indicated southeast-S 
wind of around 10 knots at the surface...but SW wind 35-40 knots at 
fl020. This has produced low level wind shear near the air field so have included 
it in the taf for this morning. Weishaar 


&& 


Marine...gale force wind has diminished to Small Craft Advisory 
speeds. Models suggest gusts to 25 knots at times most of the day. 
There may be short period of sub-advisory wind speeds through 
tonight...but will keep the current Small Craft Advisory as is. A 
more robust cold front...which has much colder air behind it...will 
move south through the coastal waters late Friday and early Friday evening 
for continued Small Craft Advisory winds. The wind will switch to 
the northwest behind this front. The northwest winds will ease on 
Saturday...then offshore gap enhanced east winds will develop 
Saturday night and Sunday...probably of the Small Craft Advisory 
variety. These offshore winds will continue into next week. 


Seas are up to 10 to 13 feet this morning and will remain in that 
range through tonight. Seas continue to hover around 10 feet into 
Saturday...then fall below 10 feet by Sunday. Seas today will be 
choppy with around 8 second periods from the southwest. Periods 
will lengthen to around 14 seconds later today and tonight...then 
shift and be from the northwest with periods and 10 or 11 seconds 
Friday night into Saturday. Weishaar 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 8 am PST Saturday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 
60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 8 am PST Saturday 
for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Cascade Head or 
out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas until 10 PM PST Friday 
for coastal waters from Cascade Head or to Florence or out 60 
nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar until 6 am
