NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
849 PM PDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis...strong upper level high pressure will keep very hot 
weather in place through Friday. Temperatures will begin to cool 
slightly on Saturday...but will remain well above normal. A gradual 
cooling trend will then occur as the ridging moves eastward and an 
upper level trough approaches from the north. Conditions will return 
to near normal for the second half of next week as the upper trough 
moves onshore. Monsoonal moisture from the south will bring a slight 
chance of thunderstorms near the Oregon Cascade crest starting over 
the weekend...with the threat continuing through much of next week. 




&& 


Update...for anybody who managed to spend the entire afternoon in 
air conditioning...let's recap - it was really hot today. Four sites 
across the Willamette Valley broke high temperature records and it 
was generally the hottest day we've seen inland since 2009. 
Temperatures remain above 90 degrees at 8 PM in most valley locations 
and will continue to be slow to cool this evening. Tomorrow looks 
like it will be similar to today as far as temperatures go. 


Although outside of the local forecast area...a fire started and 
quickly spread in Douglas County this afternoon and its smoke has 
spread over eastern Lane County and southeastern Linn counties. Have 
added some cloud cover to those areas tonight and tomorrow morning to 
account for the smoke. That fire has also produced some pyrocumulus 
with a few cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and even more in-cloud 
lightning activity. With the fire being the sole source of that 
thunderstorm...do not expect it to move into Lane County and there 
is no thunder threat tonight anywhere locally. Bowen 


Short term (previous discussion)...tonight through Sunday 
night...very hot and dry weather will persist through Friday as a 
strong upper level ridge remains firmly entrenched from the desert 
SW up through the Pacific northwest. Subsidence associated with the ridge has 
driven 850 mb temperatures into the 23 to 25 c range today...which is 
basically right at the climatological maximum values recorded for 
this date. As expected...it appears that most of the interior 
lowlands are headed toward high temperatures in the triple digits this 
afternoon. It seems like a very good bet that many locations will 
see their hottest temperatures since Aug 2012. In fact...it is highly 
possible that some spots will see the warmest temperatures since July of 
2009. Overnight lows will not provide much relief for those without 
air conditioning...likely only dropping into the middle 60s over The 
Lowlands. Lows over the Coast Range and Cascade foothills will be 
even warmer due to the presence of a thermal belt caused by the 
strong low level subsidence. 


The thermal trough that is draped right over the Willamette Valley 
and adjacent foothills this afternoon should drift back toward the 
coast overnight into Friday morning...then move inland again during the 
day tomorrow as the interior heats up. Expect Friday will be a near 
repeat of today. The forecast models are indicating that a little better 
onshore gradient may be generated tomorrow afternoon in response to 
the trough moving inland. It is possible that this may moderate temperatures 
over the northern interior by a couple of degrees...but in general 
expect temperatures to be pretty similar to what we are seeing today. An 
excessive heat warning remains in effect for most of the interior 
lowlands through Friday night...and a heat advisory is in effect for the 
Coast Range...Cascade foothills...and the lower Columbia region. 


The upper level ridge will weaken slightly over the Pacific northwest on Sat. 
More importantly...it appears that the thermal trough will move east 
of the Cascades during the day. This will bring better onshore 
flow and lower temperatures by several degrees...although they will still be 
well above normal. The ridge weakens further sun as upper level low 
pressure begins to dig south along the British Columbia coast. This will 
continue the gradual cooling trend with inland highs likely in the 
low to middle 90s. 


The forecast models also continue to indicate that some monsoonal 
moisture will move in from the south over the weekend...bringing the 
potential for some isolated thunderstorms in the Oregon Cascades. 
There are no obvious triggers for the convection at this time...but 
the forecast model soundings are showing some middle level 
instability...albeit not that impressive. It will be difficult to 
pinpoint time periods when thunder will be more probable until we get 
closer to the event. Pyle 


&& 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...an upper level trough 
will slowly dig south along the Pacific northwest coast through early next week. 
This will result in a return to a more typical northwest flow 
pattern...with increasing onshore flow and marine influence and 
gradually cooling temperatures. The trough is modeled to move onshore during 
the second half of the week...and should bring temperatures back to near or 
even below average temperatures. There will also be continued chances 
for isolated Cascade thunderstorms for much of next week. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions today through Friday...though there is 
a chance for some MVFR visible at konp overnight again tonight. Gusty 
northerly winds along the coast should weaken around 04-06z. 
Northerly winds should increase again along the coast Friday 
afternoon. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions for the next 24 hours. -McCoy 


&& 


Marine...seas have been hovering around 7 feet at 6 to 7 seconds in 
the outer waters...which led to issuing a Small Craft Advisory for 
hazardous steep seas in the outer waters. Seas around 4 to 6 feet 
less than 10 nm out. Northerly winds still expected to increase 
over the next couple hours and gust to 20 to 25 kts. Because there 
has been a significant period with sub-advisory winds again 
today...am letting advisory for winds and seas expire early Friday 
morning and am leaving a period with no advisories until winds 
increase again Friday afternoon. 


Friday afternoon through Saturday night...models in agreement for 
northerly winds mostly continuing to gust to 20 to 25 kts through 
the entire day Saturday...though there may be a shorter period of 
sub-advisory winds in the morning than on Friday morning. Thus 
have the advisory for winds starting Friday afternoon continuing 
until early Sunday morning. Seas during this period should stay 
around 5 to 6 feet except during the afternoon/evening hours Friday 
and Saturday seas may approach 7 feet...which could meet criteria 
for steep seas if wave periods are again down to 7 seconds. 
Sunday northerly winds will again increase to 20 to 25 kts for 
the afternoon/evening hours...with seas around 4 to 6 feet. -McCoy
