 Fire Weather Warning  Statement as of 3:09 PM PDT on August 1, 2015


... Red flag warning remains in effect until 10 PM PDT this
evening for hot... dry... unstable conditions combined with
critically dry fuels for Oregon fire weather zones 602... 603...
604... 605... 606... 607... 608... and Washington fire weather zones
602... 604 and 660...

* affected zones... in Oregon... fire weather zones 602... 603...
604... 605... 606... 607 and 608. In Washington... fire weather
zones 602... 604 and 660.

* Affected areas... this includes the Gifford Pinchot National
Forest... Mt Hood National Forest west of the Cascade crest...
the Willamette National Forest... portions of the Siuslaw
National Forest... the Willamette Valley and adjacent
foothills... as well as the Clark County lowlands. Odf... blm...
and Washington dnr lands are included as well.

* Timing... through late this evening.

* Stability... mid and high level Haines 5 to 6 at
times... especially in the north half of the forecast area. Very
unstable conditions could promote column growth to 10 to 12
thousand feet msl or greater under intense burning conditions.

* Relative humidity... humidity values generally 12 to 22 percent
through early evening. Values slowly rising to 25 to 35 percent
by late evening in The Lowlands... but as low as 15 percent on
ridges.

* Wind... gusty afternoon and evening wind this afternoon through
late this evening. Sustained north to northwest wind 6 to 12 mph
with gusts to 20 mph expected for exposed areas.

* Impacts... the combination of an hot... dry... and unstable
environment... gusty winds... and extremely very dry fuels may
result in rapid growth of new or existing fires.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of the
above conditions can contribute to extreme fire behavior.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
917 am PDT Sat Aug 1 2015 


Synopsis...a negatively tilted upper level ridge with 500mb heights 
around 590 dm will continue over southwest Washington and northwest 
Oregon today. An upper level low off the California coast will be 
steering some monsoonal moisture from the Desert Southwest into 
western Oregon later today through Sunday into Monday. This will 
bring an increasing threat of thunderstorms to the Oregon Cascades 
initially...with some debris moisture possible west of the Cascades 
later tonight through Sunday into Monday. This combined with a slowly 
developing marine layer along the coast that will eventually push the 
thermal trough east of the Cascades on Sunday will bring gradual 
cooling to the area after today. An upper level trough will swing in 
from the northwest in the middle of next week for more cooling and 
possibly even some coastal drizzle. 
&& 


Short term...the synoptic scale set up this morning has a 
positively tilted upper ridge over the western U.S. With 590 dm 
500mb heights into northwest Oregon and southwest Washington. There 
is a shallow marine layer along the coast with northerly low level 
flow along the coast. An upper low is off the California coast with 
a southeasterly steering flow spreading monsoonal thunderstorm 
moisture northward along the sierras toward western Oregon...with 
some lightning near Medford this morning. There is some southerly 
low level winds along the south Oregon coast with deeper stratus 
there...but the models indicated these will have trouble reaching our 
coast very soon despite the favorable wind flow aloft. 


We will see another hot day today...with 850 mb temperatures around 23 degree c 
today...similar to those Friday. We will see a bit of the convective 
cloud to our south spreading into Lane County...but the models all 
say the main chance of instability this afternoon and evening will be 
in the Cascades. 


Convective debris spreads north late tonight and through the day 
Sunday and Sunday night...so nearly the entire forecast area will see 
more clouds Sunday into Monday than we have seen since last weekend. 
Question becomes where the thunderstorms will be. The models seem 
pretty certain that they will spread farther north through the Oregon 
Cascades...but feel that there is a chance toward the Coast Range on 
Sunday. Might even see some sprinkles over the valley Sunday...but 
not sure whether the instability will be over the valley yet or not. 


The models show a short wave currently in southern Nevada spreading 
north through western Oregon and into southwest Washington Sunday 
night into Monday morning...likely modulated by convective activity 
Sunday. This will likely spread thunderstorms into the South 
Washington Cascades. This could be a better trigger for some 
convection in the valleys as well and close to the Coast Range. 


The models show the thermal trough extending back over the western 
valley again today...but moving east of the Cascades on Sunday as 
onshore flow begins to increase. After flirting with 100 again in 
many inland areas again today...temperatures will probably fall into the 
upper 80s to middle 90s on Sunday. The onshore flow will continue into 
Monday with possibly some marine clouds reaching Portland and Eugene. 
This may be enough to keep inland temperatures not much above 90. 


Thunder after Monday morning will become more confined to the higher 
Cascades and in the south as the upper flow starts to turn more 
southwesterly. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows...a few model 
discrepancies start off the extended period. Both the 12z GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) show an upper level trough approaching the region from the 
northwest late Monday...but the European model (ecmwf) deepens the low by early 
Tuesday whereas the GFS just skims the top of the Pacific northwest 
early next week. The models then have timing issues on bringing a 
trough over the area late next week. Overall...we will see a general 
cooling trend through the week with high temperatures returning back 
to normal. Could see a threat for Cascade thunderstorms Monday 
evening and again Tuesday afternoon and evening. We may also see some 
showers clip the SW Washington and northwest Oregon coast by Wednesday and 
Thursday if the European model (ecmwf) solution comes to fruition. /27 
&& 


Aviation...VFR inland. A mixed bag along the coast where stratus is 
hugging the coastline. The stratus will likely burn off to just 
offshore this afternoon but feel there is a moderate or better chance 
of it returning inland this evening. Additionally...there is an area 
of convection along SW Oregon expected to move northward but will 
likely make it north to west central Oregon and northward as debris 
clouds above fl100 and not much more. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions although may see some denser 
pockets of wildfire smoke drift northward and affect the broader 
eastern and southern approach paths by early this afternoon. /Jbonk 
&& 


Marine...no changes...previous discussion follows. Gusty north winds 
persist this weekend with high pressure offshore and thermal trough 
inland. Overall wave component dominated by north to northwest wind wave and 
fresh swell...and these are responsible for steep seas especially 
over the central Oregon waters. Little change in the pattern for 
Saturday and much of Sunday...namely choppy conditions and gusty 
winds between north and northwest...particularly in the afternoon and evening 
hours each day. No changes to the advisories as these look to remain 
on track. Cullen
