NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
330 am PDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis...a low pressure system will bring an increasing threat of 
rain showers and thunderstorms to the area today. Drier weather with 
more seasonal temperatures are expected to arrive late Thursday and 
Friday...before temperatures push 90f late in the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...today through Friday...after a quiet period overnight 
shower activity is on the increase. Water vapor imagery shows vorticity 
center off the northern California coast interacting with an upper low sagging 
over the Washington and Oregon offshore waters. Regional radar 
network indicating two separate bands of precipitation affecting the area. One 
over the coast and Coast Range...and the other moving into the 
southern area of the County Warning Area. Models indicate a broad area of lift 
moving into the area today. So have increased probability of precipitation to categorical and 
increased quantitative precipitation forecast for today and this evening. 


Convection potential for today will increase through the afternoon. 
Have kept a mention of slight chance of thunderstorms over the area 
early this morning. Though looking at model soundings it appears 
thunderstorm threat low. However for the afternoon to early evening 
as the upper low nears the air mass destabilizes...more to the north 
part of the County Warning Area than the south...convection becomes more likely. 
Model soundings have -3 lifted index over the north Willamette Valley 
and 0 to 2 Li over the South Valley. Cape values around 400-600 j/kg 
north and under 100 j/kg south. Equilibrium levels peak at around 
the -30c level in the north so there is potential for fairly deep 
convection for hail development. Also of note is vertical wind shear 
ahead of the trough. Convection development in this environment will 
be less pulse type thunderstorm and be longer lived. Also with a 
surface low pressure lingering just off the southwest Washington 
coast there may be a tendency for surface winds in the Willamette 
Valley and along the lower Columbia River to have a bit more of a S 
to south-southeast component than otherwise expected. Combined with west-southwest winds of 
25 knots at 900mb and 40kt at 500mb...a rapidly strengthening updraft 
could rotate briefly. However...confidence is very low in this 
actually occurring somewhere within the County Warning Area...but it will still be 
Worth monitoring. The more expected hazards...gusty winds and small 
hail were added to the thunder. 


On the fire front...most locations across the forecast area should 
see wetting rains of a quarter to half inch with a few locations 
likely pushing an inch of rain...particularly across southwest 
Washington. It should be noted wetting rains are less likely towards 
Lane County...but certainly appear possible Wednesday. 


The upper low shifts east of the Cascades tonight and Thursday with weak 
ridging developing so expect a drying and warming trend heading into 
the weekend. 


Long term...high pressure will build westward across the Continental U.S. 
Amplifying an upper-level ridge that will set up over the 
northwestern U.S. This will increase temperatures back to above 
normal over the weekend. There is a possible disturbance that could 
move through as early as Sunday night...but much uncertainty exists 
in the timing of this system and location. -McCoy 


&& 


Aviation...widespread chance for thunderstorms across the region 
generally after 12z and extending into the evening hours. Could 
see a lightning strike or two before 12z with the current band of 
showers affecting coastal sites but not likely. Rain and MVFR 
ceilings move into the valley starting around 12z at eug and 
spread north through the morning. Could be some IFR visibility at any 
terminals which do experience a storm but chances are low enough 
that have not included that possibility in the forecast. 


Kpdx and approaches...expect VFR to continue through early morning 
with ceilings above 4000 feet. Rain chances increase after 12z with 
ceilings lowering to MVFR. 20 percent chance of thunderstorms 
impacting kpdx and approaches after 12z and continuing through 
about 03z. 




&& 


Marine...relatively quiet conditions over the waters continue 
tonight as the surface gradient remains weak in between 
systems...keeping winds 15 knots or less. Seas remain 3-4 feet tonight 
with a continued small west-northwest swell. 


A low pressure system will pass through the waters. Models 
continue to indicate an area of wind gusts to 25 knots late this 
afternoon through tonight in the northern Oregon offshore 
waters...but with such marginal numbers will hold off for now on 
issuing an Small Craft Advisory. Later this week...high pressure redevelops over NE Pacific 
as thermal low pressure builds over north California. This will bring a 
return to gusty north winds and steep wind driven seas...particularly 
in the late afternoon and evening hours Friday through the weekend.
