NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
220 PM PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis...a warm frontal boundary remained draped across southwest 
Washington and northwest Oregon this afternoon as moisture from the 
Pacific rides along the front. The associated cold front will move 
into southwest Washington and northwest Oregon tonight and move east 
of the area Thursday morning for continued fairly heavy rain and 
higher elevation snow. The associated strong surface low will 
approach Vancouver Island today then stall near Vancouver Island and 
weaken Thursday and Friday. The parent upper low or trough will dig 
south toward California Thursday afternoon and Thursday night before 
moving onshore and through the area Friday and Friday evening for 
more showers. Another significant frontal system is expected late 
Saturday and Saturday night. 
&& 


Short term...a frontal boundary that has transitioned to a warm 
front remained draped over southwest Washington and a good part of 
northwest Oregon this afternoon. This feature is now merging this 
afternoon with the cloud shield from the main cold front with the 
next approaching strong low. 


This next stronger cold front will be moving into our area 
tonight...and the models have some pretty decent precipitation 
amounts with it. It will not be enough to cause flooding...but it 
will be quite wet. Rainfall amounts through Thursday morning of 1 to 
2 inches are expected along the coast and in the mountains...with 
0.5 to 1 inch in the valleys. 


Snow levels are slow to rise in the Cascades ahead of and with the 
warm front...so have continued the Snow Advisory through tonight but 
with a bit higher snow level...closer to 5000 feet. Thus it will 
begin raining tonight at the passes...but ski resort elevations 
could still get some decent amounts again tonight. 


The associated 995 mb low will approach Vancouver Island late today 
and tonight...then stall near Vancouver Island and slowly weaken 
through Thursday and Friday. This will produce enough gradient along 
our coast for gales in the coastal waters and fairly strong winds 
along the coastal strip. It looks like it will stay below warning 
criteria along the coastal strip...but some headlands may get close. 


We should see plenty of showers Thursday behind the cold front. 
Model lifted index values look a little weak for thunder but we 
should at least see some small hail...with model soundings showing a 
bit of a cap at 700 mb as the main colder air aloft is still 
offshore. On Friday the main upper trough will be moving through 
southwest Washington and northwest Oregon and thunder chances look a 
bit better as temperatures at 500 mb fall to minus 28 degree c. 


While the upper trough moves east of the area Friday night...some 
showers will continue Friday night and Saturday as onshore flow 
continues and there is not much upper ridging in between systems. 
The next stronger front is expected Saturday night. Tolleson 


Long term...Saturday night through Wednesday... 
the latest medium range forecast models continue to advertise a frontal 
system moving onshore Sat night and early sun. Kept categorical probability of precipitation 
for this time period...with a transition to showers later in the day 
Sunday behind the trailing cold front. A weak warm front may brush 
the forecast area with some light precipitation on Monday...but the trend 
will be toward drier weather as upper level ridging builds over the 
Pacific northwest. Right now...confidence is pretty high that Tuesday will be warm 
and dry with the ridge directly overhead...and high temperatures were raised 
significantly with the latest forecast package. Model uncertainty begins 
to increase Wednesday...as the 12z GFS and some of its ensembles indicate 
that a trough over the NE Pacific will split...with the northern energy 
pushing into the Pacific northwest Wednesday as an open trough. The 12z European model (ecmwf) maintains 
a NE Pacific closed low that hardly moves through the end of the 
week...allowing ridging to remain in place over the Pacific northwest for 
several days. Have kept some low chance probability of precipitation on Wednesday due to this 
uncertainty. Pyle 
&& 


Aviation...gradually deteriorating conditions as warm front lifts 
across the region through this evening. MVFR conditions continue. 
Best conditions are S of ksle...where areas of VFR will continue 
until 00z...then MVFR spreading into those areas. Mountains/passes remain 
obscured. South winds will gradually increase tonight...with gust 35 
to 45 knots along coast/over Coast Range after 02z. Will see breezy 
conditions inland as well...but not as strong. Cold front looks to 
push to coast around 12z to 14z Thursday...and then to Cascades by 17z. 
Conditions slowly improving at that time. Rockey. 


Kpdx and approaches...MVFR with brief bouts of VFR ceilings for next 
several hours...but generally MVFR after 00z as rain increases. MVFR 
conditions to persist through tonight. Cold front with turn to SW to 
west winds around 15z Thursday. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...a developing 990 mb low pressure will slowly move towards 
Vancouver isl over the next 36 hours. Warm front now lifting across 
the north Oregon/S wash coastal waters this evening...with south winds gusty 
30 to 40 knots this evening. 


The trailing cold front will then push towards the coast later 
tonight. Will have solid S wind 25 to 35 knots...with 35 to 45 knots wind 
gusts likely...primarily within 20 nm of coast. Gale force winds 
should end around daybreak Thursday...but will keep the keep the current 
timing associated with the gale headline as is...in case this system 
slows down a few hours. Another approaching front late afternoon and 
evening will likely cause south wind gusts to increase into the 30 to 
35 knots range. 


Seas running 10 to 13 feet today...but with increasing winds later 
tonight...choppy wind driven seas will build. Will see seas peak at 
15 to 17 feet tonight into Thursday am. Seas will gradually subside on Thursday 
and Thursday evening.Rockey.
