NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
243 am PDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure will dominate the weather the next several 
days. Marine stratus will keep the coastal temperatures in the 60s to 
low 70s...but hot weather will continue inland with afternoon 
temperatures mostly in the 90s. Am upper low north of the area this 
weekend will flatten the upper ridge and prevent temperatures from 
warming above the 90s. 


&& 


Short term...today through Friday...water vapor imagery shows a flat 
upper ridge over northwest Oregon and SW Washington as a couple of 
shortwaves ride over it north of Washington state. One short wave 
approaching the British Columbia coast early this morning has helped 
keep the marine layer deep enough for some of the marine clouds along 
the immediate coast to push inland. 


The low level flow is west to northwest allowing more of a marine 
push through the northern gaps than the southern. Low clouds has 
moved up the lower Columbia River to Kelso and scapoose by 2 am...as 
well as through most of the coastal gaps of the Coast Range. Expect 
these clouds to move a little further inland through the 
morning...and likely reaching parts of the Portland metropolitan area by 
sunrise. 


Otherwise the skies are clear...with many inland temperatures in the 
60s. Would not be surprised if some of the inland temperatures drop 
just below 60. Despite the cooler start to the day...solar heating 
will quickly warm the temperatures today...and help clear the inland 
stratus. Heights will build a tad today and expect maximum 
temperatures this afternoon to be similar or slightly warmer than 
what was observed for Monday. 


Water vapor imagery shows another upper level shortwave currently 
near 40n 141w. The forecast models do not forecast this 
feature...except the GFS has a weak vorticity maximum near its location. Since 
this wave is stronger than the models...suspect that they are under 
forecasting the potential for marine clouds tonight into Wednesday morning. 
This wave looks weaker than the first one...and should also take a 
northern track as the upper ridge builds. Expect that it will 
maintain weak west-northwest low level winds and prevent the ridge from totally 
squashing the marine layer. Therefore...I have added a return of low 
clouds to the immediate coast tonight...pushing into the Columbia 
River valley Wednesday morning...but not to the Portland metropolitan area. 


The models have backed off on the ridge amplifying Wednesday and 
Thursday...possibly due to the short waves riding over the ridge. The 
upper heights will raise enough though for the afternoon temperatures 
to continue to warm inland each day...pushing into the middle to upper 
90s. Also think that the marine clouds will become less of an 
influence Wednesday night. 


An upper low will move into western Canada Thursday night and Friday 
resulting in the ridge flattening again over the Pacific northwest and 
building west over the NE Pacific. These subtle differences of the 
upper heights will be barely noticeable...but there may be a very 
slight increase of a marine push Thursday night and very slight 
cooling Friday. 


Monsoonal moisture should remain south of the area through the short 
term. Some cumulus may develop over the Cascades in the afternoons 
but expect subsidence from the high to prevent the cumulus from 
growing tall enough to generate showers or thunderstorms. Tj 


Long term...Friday night through Monday...the upper low over western 
Canada will deepen as it shifts eastward next weekend resulting in 
upper heights decreasing some over the Pacific northwest. This will help 
moderate the temperatures some...but still expect daytime highs to be 
well above normal...and likely in the 90s inland. Coastal clouds 
should continue to keep the coastal temperatures closer to the 
seasonal normals. The upper trough will destabilize the atmosphere in 
the central Oregon Cascades for possibly isolated thunderstorms in 
the afternoons and evenings...mainly near the crest of the Cascades 
in Lane County. The models vary considerably for Monday with the 
European model (ecmwf) rebuilding the ridge over US...and the GFS dropping an upper 
low southward along the western Canada coast. Left the Monday 
forecast unchanged due to these differences. Tj 
&& 


Aviation...satellite fog product as of 09z showed IFR to LIFR 
ceilings along the coast and pushing into the major coastal river 
drainages. IFR to low-end MVFR stratus also pushing up the 
Columbia to kkls. Expect the coast to remain IFR or LIFR through 
the morning then IFR to low-end MVFR in the afternoon. There may 
be a short-lived period of VFR but expect MVFR stratus to return 
Tuesday evening. Inland areas to remain VFR through Tuesday evening... 
except for MVFR ceilings up the Columbia to near kpdx through 17z. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions to prevail through Tuesday 
evening. However...it is looking more likely that MVFR stratus 
will make it to the terminal and vicinity around sunrise. Any 
stratus that does move in is expected to dissipate by 17z. 
Weishaar 
&& 


Marine...wind speeds under 10 knots early this morning...but will 
increase later this morning and into the afternoon. Expect Small 
Craft Advisory wind speeds across the majority of the waters by 
19z Tuesday. Have adjusted the timing of the Small Craft Advisory to 
start it a bit later and extend it through Wednesday afternoon. 
Strongest wind speeds will be over the southern waters...generally S of 
Heceta Head where afternoon and early-evening gusts to 30 knots can 
be expected. Models show wind speeds gradually decreasing late in 
the week and over the weekend. 


Generally wind-wave driven seas for the next few days. Spectral 
analysis maintains a residual background long-period SW swell for 
the next couple of days and have indicated this in the grids. 
Otherwise...steep and choppy conditions will prevail due to the 
large wind-wave component. A building northwest swell looks to arrive 
over the weekend and could reach 10 feet. Weishaar

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories...

Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds from 10 am this morning to 5 PM 
PDT Wednesday for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to 
Florence or out 60 nm.
