NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
906 PM PDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Synopsis...strong upper level high pressure continues to build over 
the region tonight and tomorrow. This will bring considerably warmer 
temperatures to the region. The hottest temperatures will occur 
Wednesday through Friday...but temperatures may remain around 90 
degrees in the Willamette Valley through the weekend and perhaps into 
early next week. 


&& 


Update...with a strengthening thermal low over northern 
California...winds have picked up along the coast and in the 
Willamette Valley this evening. Expect winds to drop off some tonight 
but not calm completely before increasing again tomorrow. Otherwise 
the immediate term is rather uneventful with not even any clouds in 
the local forecast area. Clear skies should dominate overnight but 
could see some morning stratus along the northwest or and SW Washington coasts 
Wednesday. 


The big news starting tomorrow will be the heat. No doubt 
temperatures will be hot but it remains to be seen just how hot. 
There is some suggestion in a number of models that weak onshore flow 
may develop in the lower Columbia and north Willamette Valley 
area...which could limit heating some for the next couple of days in 
those areas. Have not made any changes this evening to temperatures 
but will be interested to see the trends with the 00z models. Bowen 


Short term (previous discussion)...tonight through Friday. A 
pleasant late July day...especially for those who enjoy clear skies 
and a bit of warmth...has developed over the region this afternoon as 
temperatures have warmed into the 80s at most inland stations with 
temperatures as of 2 PM running 5 to 10 degrees warmer than this time 
yesterday. Meanwhile...some breezy winds with gusts around 25 miles per hour 
have begun in the central and southern Willamette Valley as well as 
the central Oregon coast as the thermal trough over north California and 
S Oregon coast builds northward. 


As the ridge of high pressure aloft continues to strengthen through 
the next few days...forecast models suggest 500 mb heights building to 
590 dam by late Thursday afternoon. Meanwhile 800 mb temperatures around 14 c 
today will increase to around 22 c by the same time. This generally 
translates to surface temperatures around 7 f to 10 f warmer for 
Wednesday...before warming an additional few degrees for Thursday. 
Models continue to point to Thursday as the likely peak of the 
stretch of hot weather for many locations as the thermally induced 
surface low pressure looks to push east of the Cascades into the 
Columbia Basin by late Thursday. There is a little more spread in the 
model guidance for temperatures this afternoon...particularly from 
the GFS but also in the European model (ecmwf)...likely due to resolving a bit 
stronger and more well defined thermal low stretching into southeast 
Washington. This would turn the low level flow a bit more northwest 
rather than northeast and allow some marine air to filter into the 
Willamette Valley. This may allow temperatures to cool a little along 
the lower Columbia and north Willamette Valley on Friday...though 
winds in the south and Central Valley and over the Coast Range 
likely remain north to northeast so similar conditions are likely 
Friday for these locations. All of this said...while confidence is 
slightly lower for Friday for northern locations...the heat 
advisories remain on track. Cullen 


&& 


Long term...Friday night through Tuesday. Few changes needed to the 
extended period today. The broad upper ridge will remain over the 
region but will flatten with lowering 500 mb heights over the area with a 
few weak disturbances passing into southern Canada. Meanwhile...there 
is a small chance that middle level moisture may rotate into the region 
from the south. This remains rather small at this point...so 
restricted slight chance of thunder primarily in the higher Cascades 
of Lane County. In terms of temperatures through the first part of 
next week...guidance still suggests temperatures moderating a bit 
from the end of this week...but still well above normal across the 
region. Cullen 


&& 


Fire weather...a thermal trough has built into southern Oregon 
today...leading to drying northerly to northeasterly winds 
developing over the region. The thermal trough is expected to expand 
northward into the Oregon Cascades and over the southern Willamette 
Valley and adjacent foothills on Wednesday and Thursday...and potentially into 
Friday as well. This will bring enhanced instability and mixing...that 
combined with the expected very hot and dry conditions...may create 
critical fire weather conditions. Also...although many locations 
received rain over the weekend...fuels are forecasted to dry out 
rapidly during the midweek period. A fire weather warning has been 
issued starting Wednesday afternoon and continuing through Thursday evening. 
The thermal trough is currently expected to push east of the 
Cascades over the weekend. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions should continue overnight tonight 
across the area through the day tomorrow...except kast may see 
some patchy MVFR stratus between 10z-14z. Northerly winds gusting 
to 20 kts this evening should decrease around 05z-06z. Lighter 
northerly winds through early Wednesday will increase again 
Wednesday afternoon around 18z-19z with gusts to 20 kts possible 
Wednesday evening. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR the next 24 hours. Gusty northerly winds 
decrease after 05z Wednesday. Northerly winds expected to increase again 
after 19z Wednesday. -McCoy 


&& 


Marine...typical summertime pattern through the end of the week 
into this weekend. Winds at buoy 50 are gusting to 25 kts this 
evening...but do not seem as strong as the models forecast...at 
least according to buoy 50 and wave heights at buoy 89 and 29. Still 
thinking we could see a few gusts to 30 kts in the southern 
waters...with seas becoming steep and choppy around 7 feet with wave 
periods around 6 to 7 seconds. Have dropped the Small Craft 
Advisory for hazardous seas in the northern waters for this 
evening as seas look like they won't get quite to 7 feet to meet 
advisory criteria until late Wednesday morning. 


Strongest winds still appear to be Wednesday afternoon/evening with 
a few gusts to 35 kts possible over the central Oregon waters. 
Will keep a high end Small Craft Advisory for winds as gusts above 
33 kts will be very infrequent. Wind-driven seas will become steep 
up to around 6 to 8 feet with dominant wave periods around 7 to 8 
seconds...warranting a Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas as 
well. 


Gusty afternoon northerly winds up to around 25 kts likely to 
continue through the weekend...with periods of sub-advisory winds 
possible during the morning hours Friday through Sunday. Wave 
heights look to stay around 5 to 7 feet through the weekend as well.
