NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
230 PM PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis...a developing cold front in the NE Pacific will move 
across the forecast area this evening...then rain turns to a few 
showers as upper level low pressure passes by to the north. A 
gradual drying trend occurs Friday...but will be short-lived. 
Another front impacts SW Washington and northwest Oregon Saturday. Weak 
high pressure brings a mostly dry Sunday...but an unsettled weather 
pattern returns next week. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Saturday.... rain has been fairly 
steady today with occasional localized upticks in precipitation rates 
of late. There are some breaks along the coast/Coast Range ahead of 
the cold frontal precipitation. Klgx radar depicts more moderate 
rainfall off and along the coast which will move through later this 
afternoon and early evening. Latest rap/hrrr put the cold front on 
the coast around 0z...a few hours thereafter in the valley....though 
most of the precipitation is along and ahead of the front. Expect some 
uptick in precipitation with the front but not expecting a real big kick as 
the core of the upper trough and associated steeper middle level lapse 
rates drag by to our north. 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 tonight...so there will be some showers 
given the cold air cumulus offshore. Snow levels are not expected to 
fall to near the passes until after 06z when shower activity begins 
to wane. 


Showers after midnight become confined to Cascades and Coast Range 
tonight as we are in weakly cyclonic flow aloft and there is some 
westerly 850 mb flow.Surface high pressure begins nosing in tonight 
and slides north along the Coast Range...so maybe a few showers in 
the morning for the S Washington and extreme north Oregon Cascades and 
foothills Friday morning. With the weak surface flow there may be some 
stratus later tonight and less so even some patchy fog...as forecast 
soundings in the low levels depict decreasing moisture with height 
and temperature profiles are largely still unstable. 


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. 


After a mostly dry Friday and Friday night...models are still in good 
agreement on Saturday being a wet afternoon inland. Less in the way 
of moisture as the main moisture plume continues to sink south 
towards California...but maybe slightly better dynamics but this will 
bring a shorter period of lighter rain than today and locally breezy 
conditions. /Kmd 


Long term...Saturday night through Wednesday...Topsy-turvy weather 
continues Sat night as weak 500 mb ridging tries to form over the 
Pacific northwest and surface high pressure again takes control. 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 and temperatures again 
warm back to the lower 60s. As the flow amplified more Monday...we 
could have another dry morning...with a weak cold front which looks 
to trigger some showers in the afternoon...especially for the 
Cascades...with a better threat inland elsewhere in the evening,. 


Looks like much of the extended is characterized by cool and damp 
conditions as a deep upper low Parks itself in the Gulf of 
Alaska...and sends waves of showers through the area. Expect near to 
below normal temperatures through much of the period..with the 
potential for some accumulating snows in the Cascades as snow levels 
will be down near the passes beginning late Monday night into 
Tuesday. /Kmd 


&& 


Aviation...cold frontal rain is reaching the coat for a return to 
MVFR and localized IFR conditions. Cold front with shift to west winds 
and will push onshore around 0z...and reach the interior by around 3- 
4z and the Cascades by 5-6z with mountains obscured through this 
time. VFR returns with a few showers behind the front. Cannot rule 
out some MVFR towards daybreak as there is some lingering low level 
moisture...especially along the north coast and along and north of 
the Columbia River...but low levels remain generally unstable. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR with occasional MVFR conditions...best 
chance for MVFR just ahead of the cold front. Cold front will likely 
reach Ops area around 03z....with shift to west winds. Heading back to 
VFR behind the front. There may be some lingering 
stratus...especially early Friday. /Kmd 


&& 


Marine...a cold front is currently pushing across the waters this 
afternoon...bringing gusty winds ahead of and behind it. Winds 
should relax below small craft criteria late this evening...but 
could hang on a touch longer than currently forecast across the 
northern waters. Otherwise...seas should rise a couple feet in the 
next couple of hours and allow seas to hover around 10 feet for a 
few hours this evening across the north. 


After a brief break in the weather Friday into early 
Saturday...another front will push across the waters midday Saturday. 
Expect more 25 to 30 knots winds with this front. A large westerly swell 
will follow the front late Saturday into Sunday. Latest model 
guidance brings seas between 17 and 20 feet between approximately 2 am 
and 2 PM Sunday...before they begin to slowly decrease. Seas look to 
remain above 10 feet through the first half of next week though.
