NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
913 am PST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis...high pressure over region maintaining dry and mild air mass 
today. A couple of weak fronts will bring a chance for light rain 
along the coast and Coast Range Wednesday morning then inland north 
of Portland Wednesday afternoon and evening. A warm front will 
continue light rain Wednesday night and Thursday. Another front may 
spread more more widespread rain across the region on Friday. Cooler 
unsettled weather is expected for the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...dense fog in the south Willamette Valley and along the 
lower Columbia River valley are showing signs of improvement this 
morning and have cancelled the dense fog advisory. A strong upper 
ridge and inversion holds over the area and expect daytime 
temperatures in most areas to warm into the 60s this afternoon. 


East winds continue through The Gorge with gusts 50 to 70 miles per hour through 
the Columbia River gorge and 35 miles per hour near the Columbia Gorge entrance 
(troutdale area). These winds will continue today...then weaken this 
afternoon and evening. Coastal areas and areas far from The Gorge 
will have a change to southerly winds this afternoon as a front nears 
the coast. 


Satellite imagery shows high clouds associated with the front 
offshore approaching the central Oregon coast this morning. These 
clouds will continue to push inland today and have updated the sky 
cover forecast for today and tonight. The approaching cold front will 
weaken as it nears the coast tonight...but likely hold together 
enough to generate light rain over the coastal waters late tonight 
and along the coast and Coast Range Wednesday morning. 
High clouds should limit radiation fog overnight tonight...but the 
winds with the front are fairly light and can expect some patchy 
coastal and Interior Valley fog. 


The weakening front is associated with a low that is around 700 miles 
offshore the British Columbia coast. Satellite imagery shows another 
low forming SW of the first low...near 40n 150w. A weak front with 
this second low will merge with the first front along the coast Wednesday 
morning and spread light rain inland inland...mainly north of 
Portland Wednesday afternoon and evening. Rainfall totals will be 
low...and snow levels will remain high. A warm front will produce 
another chance for rain Wednesday night and Thursday. Tj 


Long term...the upper ridge will move east of the area Thursday 
night and Friday and open the door for a cooler and moister weather 
pattern for the weekend. A frontal system will spread widespread rain 
across the area Friday. Cooler air behind the front will lower snow 
levels down tothe Cascade passes this weekend as another front 
moves in Saturday night or Sunday. Models are in great agreement on 
the upper ridge rebuilding early next week for another round of sunny 
and warm weather. Tj 


&& 


Aviation...VFR at the coast plus terminals in the north 
Willamette Valley due offshore winds keeping atmosphere mixed. 
Easterly winds gradually weaken today...but still remain gusty 
near the west end of The Gorge. Fog appears shallower than 
yesterday and is staying south of ksle. Expect keug to break out 
of fog and improve to VFR around 18z. VFR conditions at all sites 
expected to continue through this evening. Will see high level 
clouds move in from the southwest today. This may hinder widespread 
fog development tonight. With weakening winds from The 
Gorge...could see patchy fog develop around khio but probably not 
kpdx. Definitely no fog at kttd as this site will still have 
easterly winds. Should see fog redevelop at keug tonight...and 
patchy fog could impact ksle. Along the coast...winds turn 
southerly today. Low clouds will make it to the coast around 
03-06z this evening likely lowering ceilings and visible to IFR and 
persisting overnight. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions for the next 24 hours with 
light winds at the terminal. Gusty easterly headwinds for 
departures through 20z with some speed shear under slightly 
veering winds through lowest 2000 feet above ground level. -McCoy 


&& 


Marine...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
low pressure well offshore will move north today and swing winds 
from southeasterly to more southerly this afternoon. Feel there 
will be some localized 20 to 25 knots gusts but confidence in a 
widespread Small Craft Advisory wind event is low. Have better 
confidence for Wednesday afternoon when frontal remnants will 
swing north across the waters with Small Craft Advisory level wind 
gusts likely. But even then...notable discrepancy among the models 
as to the strength with one keeping this as a non-event. Will let 
things shake out a bit before issuing products yet. Models in 
decent agreement in bringing possible gales Saturday evening under 
a passing front but begin to stray again thereafter. 


Seas have remained a bit more stubborn and are hovering 10-11 feet 
across the far northern waters. Have timed in the decay from buoy 
5 and feel they will drop see the expected drop over the next 
couple hours. 


Seas have fallen to 8 to 10 feet this evening and should generally 
continue to fall to around 7 feet Tuesday. Will see seas build back 
up around 10 feet with the frontal remnants Wednesday. While a 
longer period mixed swell arrives Thursday solidly pushing seas 
into the lower teens. Active pattern will keep seas above 10 feet 
through the weekend. /Jbonk
