Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:43 am PDT on July 28, 2014


... Very warm weather this week in southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon...

A very warm week is on tap across the interior of southwest
Washington and northwest Oregon. The warmest temperatures will be
in the inland valleys such as the Willamette Valley... the
Columbia River gorge... the Interstate 5 corridor in southwest
Washington... and the Upper Hood River Valley... where values from
90 to 95 are possible through Tuesday... with upper 80s to near 90
later in the week. The Coast Range and the Cascade foothill
temperatures will close to those values as well.

Maintaining proper hydration will be very important for any
outdoor activities planned this week. Avoid extra exertion during
the afternoon and early evening hours. Do not leave children or
pets unattended in cars... as this can be fatal. Many fatalities
that have occurred over the years during hot spell episodes have
taken place on area rivers... including several that occurred
during our last hot spell earlier in July. Take extra care while
engaged in recreation on area rivers this week.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
925 PM PDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge will be centered inland over the 
Pacific northwest through this week with an upper low centered off 
the b.C. Coast. The resulting light southwest flow aloft will produce 
very warm and dry weather to southwest Washington and northwest 
Oregon...except for an increasing chance for thunderstorms in the 
Cascades and especially in Oregon in the afternoons and evenings. 
The marine layer will be shallow but is more solid...with a little 
seepage through the coastal gaps expected as the week progresses. 
&& 


Update...had one good thunderstorm develop over far southeastern 
Lane County and lasted for the better part of a couple hours. Precipitation 
estimates from the Medford radar put upwards of an inch of rain on 
the tumblebug complex burn scar from 2009. Ground truth of 0.54 
inches at a nearby RAWS at least gives credence to those estimates. 
Issued a couple nowcasts and highlighted concern for some localized 
debris flow coming out of tumblebug creek and echo creek. If any 
flows did occur...they ultimately could drain into the upper reaches 
of the Willamette Middle Fork. In other areas...the coastal stratus 
has pushed a little further inland bringing very patchy fog with 
Newport Airport mainly reporting in the 1/2 mile to 1 mile range, 
but briefly falling below 1/4 mile a couple hours ago. As the seas 
breeze eases up this evening...expect there to be additional patchy 
fog with more widespread coverage expected overnight. Have doubts 
the stratus will push very far inland per short term model data but 
will give the previous shift the benefit of the doubt in bringing 
the clouds in to around Kelso. /Jbonk 


Previous disc... /issued 204 PM PDT Monday Jul 28 2014/ 


Short term...an upper low off the b.C. Coast and an upper level 
ridge anchored inland over the western U.S. Will be the features 
that produce the weather pattern that will affect the Pacific 
northwest and southwest Washington and northwest Oregon through this 
week. This will produce light mostly southwest flow aloft with high 
500 mb heights. A marine layer has formed along the coast...but the 
associated subsidence will keep the marine layer rather shallow 
through the week. We will see some seepage inland through coastal 
gaps as the week progresses. 


Skies have mostly cleared along the coast but the fog and low clouds 
are still fairly close to the coast...and may not clear back offshore 
too much more. There are some cumulus beginning to develop in south 
central Oregon in Klamath and southern Deschutes County...including 
just east of Willamette Pass. Will keep the slight chance of thunder 
in far eastern Lane County but not sure we will actually see any 
lightning on the west side of the Cascade crest this afternoon and 
evening. 


The controlling weather pattern is the same on Tuesday...though there 
are some subtle differences. It will still be warm inland with temperatures 
close to 90. Expect the marine layer to continue near the coast with 
fog and low clouds back onto the coast fairly early this evening but 
remaining quite low and shallow...with some low clouds locally 
inland along the Columbia River and possibly close to Kelso early 
Tuesday. Also...the models are showing a bit more moisture spreading 
up from the south on Tuesday as precipitable water values rise to 
near 1 inch. Thus expect a better chance of thunderstorms in the 
afternoon and evening in the Oregon Cascades...probably staying 
south of Mount Jefferson. While these thunderstorms may still tend 
to be a bit dry...a few may eventually produce some rainfall...and 
the GFS model even develops a quantitative precipitation forecast bullseye...possibly due to 
convective feedback. 


The pattern Wednesday looks very similar to Tuesday...with a chance 
of thunderstorms again over the Cascades in the afternoon and 
evening. Precipitable waters  remain around 1 inch. The light southwest flow will 
probably keep thunderstorms mainly south of the Columbia River again. 
The models imply the marine layer may become more solid along the 
coast Wednesday...and may try to extend inland to near Portland but 
anything will be very brief and not have much impact. Temperatures inland 
will continue to be very warm Wednesday...in the upper 80s to around 
90. Not seeing much change from Wednesday to Thursday and the 
forecast grids are not much different. Tolleson 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday. The ridge in place over 
the western U.S. Will remain in place through the end of the week. A 
series of shortwaves are forecast to travel up the west side of the 
ridge...possibly impacting our area. These impulses bring chances 
for thunderstorms...mainly in the Cascades...through the weekend. 
Model uncertainty exists on the timing and strength of these 
shortwaves as model resolution accuracy declines rapidly further in 
the forecast period...especially for these smaller features. Have 
decreased probability of precipitation further north on Friday as the models have converged 
on a more southerly track for storm chances...and decreased 
confidence of thunder chance over the weekend due to great model 
uncertainty on timing and location. -McCoy 


&& 


Aviation...LIFR/vlifr stratus and fog pushed onto the central or 
coast this afternoon and will likely remain in place through tonight 
and into tomorrow morning. IFR/LIFR stratus should also push into 
the north or and S Washington coast...including kast...between 06z and 09z. 
Coastal stratus should burn back offshore by early tomorrow 
afternoon. Inland sites to remain VFR through the next 24 hours as 
high pressure resides over the region...with dry southwesterly flow aloft. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR in control for the next 24 hours. Pyle 


&& 


Marine...N/NW flow remains in control this week with high pressure over 
the NE Pacific and a thermally induced surface trough over northwest calif and 
far SW Oregon. Pressure gradients will flex from time to time...but 
tightest gradient will remain over the near shore waters. Decided to 
end the Small Craft Advisory for tonight as the pressure gradient has 
begun to weaken...but issued another for tomorrow afternoon and 
evening over the inner waters. 


Seas generally running 4 to 6 feet over the next several days. 
Conditions may become a bit choppy at times during the afternoon and 
evening hours in response to the stronger winds. Pyle 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories...
