Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:43 am PDT on July 28, 2014


... Very warm weather this week in southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon...

A very warm week is on tap across the interior of southwest
Washington and northwest Oregon. The warmest temperatures will be
in the inland valleys such as the Willamette Valley... the
Columbia River gorge... the Interstate 5 corridor in southwest
Washington... and the Upper Hood River Valley... where values from
90 to 95 are possible through Tuesday... with upper 80s to near 90
later in the week. The Coast Range and the Cascade foothill
temperatures will close to those values as well.

Maintaining proper hydration will be very important for any
outdoor activities planned this week. Avoid extra exertion during
the afternoon and early evening hours. Do not leave children or
pets unattended in cars... as this can be fatal. Many fatalities
that have occurred over the years during hot spell episodes have
taken place on area rivers... including several that occurred
during our last hot spell earlier in July. Take extra care while
engaged in recreation on area rivers this week.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
307 am PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge will be centered inland over the 
Pacific northwest through this week with an upper low centered off 
the b.C. Coast. The resulting light southwest flow aloft will produce 
very warm and dry weather to southwest Washington and northwest 
Oregon. There is a chance for thunderstorms in the Oregon Cascades 
in the afternoons and evenings. The marine layer will be shallow but 
is more solid...with a little seepage through the coastal gaps 
expected as the week progresses. 
&& 


Short term...an upper low off the b.C. Coast and an upper level 
ridge anchored inland over the western U.S. Will be the features 
affecting the weather for the Pacific northwest this week. Light 
mostly southwest flow aloft with high 500 mb heights. The marine 
layer remains shallow under the subsidence aloft and is limited to 
the coastal zones with a little seepage up the lower Columbia River. 


Very similar conditions today. The main differences are lower 500mb 
heights for a slightly cooler air mass along with an increase in the 
low level onshore flow. This will keep the marine stratus along the 
coast today. Later tonight into Wednesday morning an old frontal boundary 
slides into the coastal waters and may bring some drizzle to the 
coast.Marine stratus should seep further inland and try to extend 
inland to near Portland but anything will be very brief and not have 
much impact. Temperatures inland will continue to be very warm with little 
change through Thursday. 


As for thunderstorm activity...another batch of moisture arrives into 
the southern zones this afternoon. Instability is limited for cloud 
growth up to the -30c level and will likely need the higher terrain 
of the Cascades to initiate convection. So expect any convection to 
be isolated at best. However with the increased moisture a strong 
cell could dump a fair amount of precipitation in a short time. The pattern 
Wednesday and Thursday looks very similar to Tuesday...with a chance 
of thunderstorms again over the Cascades in the afternoon and 
evening. One change in the models...precipitable water values are 
down to 0.6 inch from 1 inch over yesterdays run. 




Long term...Thursday night through Monday. The ridge in place over 
the western U.S. Will remain in place through the end of the week. A 
series of shortwaves are forecast to travel up the west side of the 
ridge...possibly impacting our area. These impulses bring chances 
for thunderstorms...mainly in the Cascades...through the weekend. 
Model uncertainty exists on the timing and strength of these 
shortwaves as model resolution accuracy declines rapidly further in 
the forecast period...especially for these smaller features. Have 
decreased probability of precipitation further north on Friday as the models have converged 
on a more southerly track for storm chances...and decreased 
confidence of thunder chance over the weekend due to great model 
uncertainty on timing and location. -McCoy 


&& 


Aviation...LIFR/IFR stratus and fog remain in place early this 
morning along the S Washington and north and central Oregon coast. This 
coastal stratus should burn back offshore by early this 
afternoon...around 19-20z. May linger a bit longer along the 
central coast along konp...but do expect some clearing to occur at 
least briefly. Coastal stratus returns again by late tonight. Gusty 
north winds along the coast 19z-03z. Dry SW flow aloft and high pressure 
should maintain VFR conditions across the interior taf sites next 
24 hours. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR prevailing next 24 hours with generally 
light north-northwest surface winds. Cullen 


&& 


Marine...few changes in the weather pattern over the waters this 
week as north to northwest flow remains in control given high pressure over the 
NE Pacific and a thermally induced surface trough over northwest California and 
extreme SW Oregon. A few subtle changes in surface pressure 
gradient...but looks like gradient remains strongest over the 
inner waters. With only slight variations in surface pattern for 
today...maintained a largely persistence based forecast for winds. 
Small Craft Advisory for the inner waters this afternoon and 
evening...and expect wind gusts over the outer waters to top out 
around 20 knots though cannot rule out a few occasional small craft 
gusts over the outer waters. 


Seas generally running 4 to 6 feet over the next several days with 
only small background swell. Thus seas will be primarily wind 
dominated through the week and conditions may be choppy at 
times...particularly in the afternoon and evening hours...in 
response to the strongest winds. Cullen 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...WA...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds from 2 PM this afternoon to 11 
PM PDT this evening for coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington 
to Florence or out 10 nm.
