NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
211 am PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis...a developing cold front in the NE Pacific will move 
across the forecast area today. The cold pool aloft behind the front 
settles over region Thursday night. Expect snow levels to lower near 
the Cascade passes Thursday night and early Friday morning. A gradual 
drying trend occurs Friday...but will be short-lived. Another front 
impacts SW Washington and northwest Oregon Saturday. An unsettled weather 
pattern returns for the first part of next week. 


&& 


Short term...Thursday through Saturday...synoptic overview early 
this morning consists of a weak 500 mb ridge centered near the 
Washington and Oregon Cascades and an upper level trough over the 
Gulf of Alaska and the British Columbia coast. Water vapor imagery 
shows a fairly sharp developing short-wave near 46n 134w as of 09z 
with a moisture fetch along 40n extending out beyond 160w. Blended 
total precipitable water image valid 07z indicated around an inch 
along the coast and 1 to 1.5 inches within the moisture fetch. National Weather Service 
krtx dual-pol Doppler radar has steadily filled over the past few 
hours with widespread light precipitation across much of the forecast area. 
3-hour precipitation amounts through 08z have been on the order of one to two 
tenths over higher terrain and a tenth or less along the coast and 
over the inland valleys and lowlands. 


Latest model runs in reasonable agreement regarding frontal timing. 
Rain rates should steadily increase through the morning with 
increasing integrated water vapor transport and strengthening 700 mb 
and 850 mb westerly wind. GFS and European model (ecmwf) in a little better agreement 
showing the cold front reaching the S Washington and far north Oregon coast 21z 
to 00z Friday. The European model (ecmwf) has slowed a bit...coming more in line with 
previous GFS timing. The cold front reaches the Cascades around 06z 
Friday. Expect breezy to windy conditions to develop in the Columbia 
Gorge east of kczk late this afternoon or in the evening. 
Finally...the cold pool aloft associated with the upper trough slides 
over western Washington and northwestern Oregon Thursday night. 850 mb orographic westerly flow of 
10-20 knots into the Cascades will enhance precipitation rates in the 00z-06z 
Friday time frame...but snow levels are not expected to fall to near the 
passes until after 06z when shower activity begins to wane. 


Surface high pressure builds over the forecast area Friday...but cannot rule 
out isolated showers for the S Washington and extreme north Oregon Cascades and 
foothills Friday morning. 850 mb temperatures remain a little on the cool side 
Friday afternoon...about +2c over kpdx per the GFS and +3c on the European model (ecmwf). 
However...high sun angle for middle-April will warm the boundary layer 
and allow daytime temperatures to be at or just above normal. Saturday 
looked to be a dry a couple days ago. However...model trends have 
been to speed up the timing of the next frontal system. The European model (ecmwf) has 
been the fastest all along the latest GFS has seemed to caught up 
with it. Precipitation expected to reach the coast by 18z Sat...or even a 
little sooner...and spread inland thereafter. Boosted probability of precipitation 
substantially Sat afternoon and lowered maximum temperatures at least a few 
degrees. Weishaar 


Long term...Saturday night through Wednesday...precipitation diminishes Sat 
night as weak 500 mb ridging tries to form over the Pacific northwest. A 
deepening Gulf of Alaska trough will help amplify the ridge a bit 
more sun. SW Washington zones still vulnerable to some light precipitation 
Sunday...but the more south one travels the more sunshine there 
should be. The European model (ecmwf) and GFS drag a weak front through late Sun night 
or Monday morning. Beyond Monday...the deep upper low settles over the NE 
Pacific for much of the week. Looks like a return to cool...showery 
conditions the the potential for some accumulating snows in the 
Cascades. Weishaar 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions remain across the southern 
interior...but MVFR conditions dominate along the coast and the 
interior north of ksle. Rain continues to push inland and expect 
widespread rain and MVFR across the forecast area...with 
persistent IFR ceilings along the coast and into the Coast Range. Cold 
front with shift to west winds will push onshore around 22z Thursday...and 
reach the interior by around 01z Friday. Mountains will be frequently 
obscured through the period. 


Kpdx and approaches...MVFR ceilings developing at the terminal as of 
09z...and expect ceilings to gradually lower to around 2000 feet with 
steadier rain developing around 11-12z. Expect little change 
through Thursday with persistent MVFR ceilings and rain. Front will likely 
reach Ops area around 00z Friday...with shift to west winds. Cullen 


&& 


Marine...a cold front will push across the coastal waters this 
afternoon. Expect S winds to increase this morning ahead of the 
front...then turn west to northwest late Thursday afternoon with gusts around 25 
knots through early tonight as the front pushes onshore. Seas will 
likely build to the 8 to 10 feet range...though do not expect 10 feet 
seas to be widespread enough to warrant an advisory for hazardous 
seas. 


After a brief break on Sat...another front will push across the 
waters sun bringing another round of 20 to 25 knots winds. Models 
also depict an arriving west swell late Sat or early sun. This will 
likely push seas into the 15 to 20 feet range through sun...with 
seas likely remaining above 10 feet through the first half of next 
week.Cullen

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds from 11 am this morning to 11 PM 
PDT this evening for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to 
Florence or out 60 nm. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar from 5 am to 
9 am PDT this morning. 


Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar from 5 PM this 
afternoon to 10 PM PDT this evening.
