Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:37 PM PST on December 18, 2014


... Flooding threat increasing Saturday night through Monday for
northwest Oregon and southwest Washington rivers...

Strong and deep moist westerly flow will begin crossing the pacnw
coast Saturday morning. A very long fetch of moisture is stretching
across the Pacific with origins west to the South China Sea and has
above average potential to bring heavy rains to the area. As
such... this continues to give the appearance of a classic high
precipitation atmospheric river event where the deep moist flow will
spend a significant amount of time on a nearly perpendicular course
against the Coast Range with the Cascades taking a bit higher of the
impact. Latest forecasts for Friday night through Monday afternoon
bring 8 to 12 inches of rain to the Cascades and foothills... 7 to
11 inches for the Coast Range... 5 to 7 inches along the immediate
coast... and 3 to 4 inches along the I-5 corridor.

Given latest data... it appears multiple Coast Range rivers have a
moderate potential of exceeding flood stage. Additionally... this
event has sufficient depth to bring significant rains to the north
Oregon and South Washington Cascades where rivers will also see
potential for notable flooding.

Keep in mind that details will always be in flux under these
scenarios as subtle north or south shifts cold make dramatic
differences in which basins receive extended periods of moderate to
heavy rain. Please continue to follow the latest forecasts and
impacts as conditions warrant.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
805 PM PST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


Synopsis...a frontal system will push onshore later tonight. A 
colder upper trough moves across the area Friday...which will lower 
snow levels below the Cascade passes. Mild and very wet weather is 
expected this weekend with an atmospheric river bringing heavy rain 
to the region. The exact location of the jet stream and associated 
moisture plume is still in question...but there is increasing 
confidence that it will take aim at SW Washington and northwest Oregon. 
There is the potential for some flooding late this weekend into 
early next week. 


&& 


Short term....front having past buoy 46029 early this evening 
expected to reach the shore and begin to move inland by late 
evening. Fairly solid band of precipitation accompanies the front on 
radar so probability of precipitation will remain high early tonight until the front moves 
through. Post frontal showers expected to pick up later in the 
night and early Friday as the cold upper trough moves across. 


Remainder of short term discussion unchanged...snow levels will 
lower down to below the Cascade passes by early Friday morning as 
the cold upper trough slides over the region. However...the bulk of 
the precipitation will have finished by the time snow levels come 
down. Overall...a few inches of snow at the passes are possible with 
a few additional inches of snow at the higher Cascade elevations. 
Added a slight chance of thunderstorms to the forecast for the Coast 
Range and points west for early tomorrow morning. The upper trough 
moves through the area and model forecast soundings indicate decent 
instability. 


Models continue to remain in good agreement that a very moist 
atmospheric river pattern will set up directing large amounts of 
mositure at SW Washington and northwest Oregon this weekend. Heavy rainfall 
likely begins by early Saturday morning and continues through at 
least Sunday. The Coast Range...Willapa Hills...Cascades...and 
foothills will likely see on the order of 8 to 12 inches of rainfall. 
Locations on the coast may see 5 to 7 inches of rain...while the 
Interior Valley locations can expect 3 to 4 inches. While some 
uncertainty in the precise areas of maximum rainfall 
exists...confidence is increasing that large amounts of precipitation 
will occur across the forecast area with this system. As a 
result...there is the potential for sharp rises on area rivers and 
streams that may result in flooding. See the hydrology section for 
more details. 


In addition...those planning to be along the coast at areas beaches 
should closely monitor the conditions for this weekend. Rapidly 
building seas will bring the potential for dangerous high surf along 
the area beaches on Friday. Long period swells may reach shore and 
surprise individuals who are unaware. Anyone on the beaches should 
exercise extreme caution and avoid the surf zone as large waves may 
wash over beaches and jetties with little warning. Some potential for 
minor tidal overflow is possible for Saturday and Sunday...especially 
around high tides. This threat could be enhanced by high flows on 
rivers in response to the rainfall this weekend. Cullen 


&& 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows. Sunday night 
through Thursday...models agree the weekend rain/flooding event will 
wind down Sunday night into Monday. A much weaker front may slide 
southward across northwest Oregon and southwest Washington Monday 
night into Tuesday. Models have wavered a bit on this system so probability of precipitation 
were generally kept in the high end chance to low end likely. 
Conditions should temporarily dry out late Tuesday before a colder 
storm system brings showers to the area on Wednesday...but 
discrepancies continue among the models. Snow levels will likely 
lower well below pass level so Holiday travelers headed over the 
Cascade passes will certainly need to monitor the forecast. Cold 
northerly will follow and allow temperatures to cool well below 
normal as conditions dry out late week. Easterly winds will likely 
return. /Neuman 


&& 


Hydrology...situation setting up for a memorable hydrologic event 
mainly for later this weekend and heading into next week. Strong and 
deep moist westerly flow will begin crossing the pacnw coast come 
Saturday morning. A very long fetch of moisture is stretching across 
the Pacific with origins west to the South China Sea. This moist air 
mass will be pushed east by a 150 to 170 knots jet and westerly 25 to 
50 knots lower level winds. As such...this continues to give the 
appearance of a classic high precipitation atmospheric river event 
where the deep moist flow will spend a significant amount of time 
on a nearly perpendicular course against the Coast Range with the 
Cascades taking a bit higher of the impact. As of the morning model 
runs and recent nwrfc updates...it appears multiple Coast Range 
rivers have a moderate potential of exceeding flood stage. 
Additionally...this event has sufficient depth to bring significant 
rains to the north Oregon and South Washington Cascades where rivers 
will also see potential for notable flooding. Will continue the 
hydrologic outlook (pdxesfpqr) product highlighting concerns. Keep 
in mind that details will always be in flux under these scenarios as 
subtle north/south shifts cold make dramatic differences in which 
basins receive extended periods of moderate to heavy rain. Please 
continue to follow the latest forecasts and impacts as conditions 
warrant. River forecasts are available on our web Page at:

Aviation...mostly low to Middle Range VFR across region...but do 
have areas of MVFR ceilings with rain over Coast Range and along 
coast this evening. This will push inland through 08z. Front now 
just onshore...and will push the Cascades by 08z. Conditions 
slowly improve to VFR with transition to showers behind the front. 
Will keep slight chance of ts along the coast for later tonight 
and into Friday am. Otherwise...mostly VFR on Friday with pockets of 
MVFR conditions under showers. 


Pdx and approaches...VFR this evening and Friday. But will have 
period of MVFR ceilings down to 2500 feet as front moves across region. 
Best timing seems to be 07z to 12z for such conditions. Otherwise 
no significant impacts expected for Ops area. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...with front just onshore...winds have now eased. 
Generally gusting to near 25 knots. So will replace Gale Warning with 
small craft advisories for both winds and seas. Both advisories 
will extend through Friday night. 


Seas holding at 12 to 14 feet tonight but will drop back a few feet 
for Friday. But with increasing winds later Friday night...so seas will 
build. Still look like building up to near 20 feet by late Friday 
afternoon...and likely around 25 feet Friday night. Winds and seas will 
ease back later Sat night and sun. Rockey. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...high surf advisory from 10 am Friday to 4 am PST Saturday for 
central Oregon coast-north Oregon coast. 


Washington...high surf advisory from 10 am Friday to 4 am PST Saturday for 
South Washington coast. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory for both winds and hazardous seas for 
tonight through Friday night. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia bar conditions 
through Friday night.
