NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
220 am PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front will approach the coast today then lift north 
into Washington tonight. A cold front will follow closely behind...moving 
inland Thursday morning. This will usher in another cool showery pattern 
that will last until the end of the week as an upper trough slowly 
moves across. An active weather pattern is expected to continue this 
weekend. 


&& 


Short term...models all indicate deep moist isentropic lift today 
on layers from 285k through 300k...spelling a wet day today. The 
isentropic lift continues until a warm front lifts through northwest Oregon 
this evening. Later tonight into Thursday morning lift relies more on the 
cold front and shortwave models depict moving through as an upper 
trough bgins to dig in along the coast. This will keep probability of precipitation 
categorical for the entire region today through Thursday morning... 
although there may be a short down time on precipitation after the 
warm front moves through and before the dynamic lifting kicks in. 
Surface observations over the Cascades early Wednesday morning showed snow 
levels on the order of 3500 feet...and are likely to lift only slowly 
until the warm front moves in this evening. At that point models 
suggest snow levels pop up above the Cascade passes...bringing an 
end to the accumulating snow. Will continue with the Winter Weather 
Advisory through 5 PM. 


Initially behind the cold front Thursday afternoon onshore flow will help 
to sustain chances for showers...particularly for orographically 
favored mountains. The onshore flow however weakens considerably the 
night...so showers will become increasingly reliant on instability 
created by the cool air aloft with the digging trough Friday. 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows...Friday night 
through Tuesday...expect cool and showery conditions for most of the 
long term forecast period. Post frontal showers lingering Thursday night and 
Friday as the upper level trough and associated instability pass over the 
region. There may be a bit of a break to start the weekend...but 
another front is push onshore late Sat or sun which should bring 
another round of more organized precipitation. The latest model trend 
is now toward building an upper level ridge over the Pacific northwest to start 
next week. It is still quite a way out...but recent trends in models 
give higher confidence early next week will be warmer and drier. 


&& 


Aviation...expect mainly VFR conditions with only occasional MVFR 
conditions expected today as moist and relatively unstable onshore 
flow continues. The lower atmosphere will stabilize this evening 
as The Heart of a warm front spreads over the region...which should 
allow conditions to become more solidly MVFR. IFR conditions will 
certainly be possible along the coast and at khio. However...gusty 
south winds should keep the core Willamette Valley taf sites from 
falling into IFR. Otherwise...expect conditions to improve once a 
cold front passes through around or shortly after 12z Thursday. 


Kpdx and approaches...expect mainly VFR conditions with occasional 
MVFR conditions mixed in today. Conditions should trend more 
solidly into MVFR this evening as a warm front spreads into the 
region. Expect conditions to improve with a cold frontal passage 
around or shortly after 12z Thursday. /Neuman 


&& 


Marine...a developing 990 mb low pressure will slowly move towards 
Vancouver Island over the next 36 hours. This will result in a 
warm front spread northeastward across the waters today...which 
should result in wind gusts of 30 to 35 knots spreading over the 
waters...particularly south of Tillamook. A trailing cold front 
will then push towards the coast this evening...causing a coastal 
jet to intensify with solid 35 to 40 knots wind gusts likely within 
20 nm of the coast. Gale force winds should end around daybreak... 
but will keep the keep the current timing associated with the gale 
headline as is...in case this system slows down a few hours. 
Another approaching front Saturday afternoon and evening will 
likely cause south wind gusts to increase into the 30 to 35 knots 
range. 


Expect seas to fluctuate between 8 and 12 feet through the weekend. 
Seas should top out in the 12 to 14 feet range Wednesday night when 
the most sustained gale force wind gusts will likely occur. /Neuman
