NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
220 PM PDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Synopsis...northwest flow will continue over the region for much 
of the week. An upper level low pressure dropping southeast across 
the inland northwest on Friday...could result in a some light 
precipitation to the northern zones...and a slim threat of 
thunderstorms across the South Washington and north Oregon Cascades. 
Northwest to north flow aloft continues over the weekend maintaining 
onshore low-level flow and near normal or slightly below normal 
daytime temperatures. High pressure strengthens just offshore early 
next week...which may result in some light offshore low-level flow. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Saturday...morning stratus layer has 
transformed into a broken stratocumulus field with ceilings generally 035 
to 045. Moderate to strong onshore low-level flow continues tonight 
through Thursday...and expect similar drizzle coverage tonight and 
Thursday morning compared to today. SW Washington lowlands... Oregon 
coast...and west slopes of the Coast Range some of the more favored 
drizzle areas. Kttd-kdls gradient up to 4.0 mb as of 20z...which 
normally results in at least 25-30 miles per hour gusts near Hood River. 
Augspurger...an elevated bpa site on the Washington side of The 
Gorge...gusting to 35 miles per hour. Expect similar conditions Thursday. 


Main forecast changes center on late Thursday night through Friday 
period. Latest NAM and European model (ecmwf) continue to indicate areas of light quantitative precipitation forecast 
further west than previous couple of runs. Both models show the upper 
trough digging as a reinforcing short-wave drops south into the 
trough base...aided by a 80-100 knots 300 mb jet streak. NAM shows 
fairly robust 700 mb Omega focused over SW Washington and extreme northwest Oregon 
12z Friday. Would expect a much deeper marine layer with enough lift for 
at least areas of drizzle late Thursday night through Friday morning in The 
Lowlands and possibly spotty light showers over elevated terrain. Any 
drizzle or light showers should be confined to the northern 
two-thirds of the forecast area. 


There is still some variability among the model solutions with regard 
to the actual low track but models generate enough instability over 
the S Washington and far north Oregon Cascades Friday afternoon for a slim threat of 
thunderstorms. Any storms which do develop and try to move west to 
southwest off the higher terrain will run into a more stable air mass 
overall on top of the already stable low level marine influenced low 
levels. Cyclonic jet from the departing low close enough to the 
Cascade crest to leave slight chance probability of precipitation there Sat...primarily in 
the morning. Weishaar 




Long term...Saturday night through Tuesday...a shortwave on the 
back side of the trough will pass over our area Saturday 
night...seen at 500 and 850 mb. This will only bring a slight chance 
of rain in the north Oregon and southern Washington Cascades...as 
moisture is very limited from northerly Continental flow and 
negative vorticity advection will promote downward motion over the 
western 2/3 of our area. As the longwave trough progresses 
eastward...the ridge currently over a good portion of the North 
Pacific will move onshore over the West Coast which will bring 
temperatures up and dry conditions early next week. -McCoy 
&& 


Aviation...generally VFR conditions this afternoon with scattered clouds 
and some ceilings 3000 to 4000 feet. Clearing trend will continue into 
the overnight hours inland while onshore flow brings MVFR ceilings 
back to coast after 02z. Marine stratus will push inland again 
tonight with ceilings around 2500 feet but latest guidance shows best 
likelihood on the north side of the river. Could see some 
scattered clouds farther south in the valley but generally VFR 
conditions should prevail south of pdx. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR with clearing skies this afternoon. 
Could see some MVFR ceilings around 2500 feet Thursday morning after 
13z but not as widespread as this morning. Bowen 


&& 


Marine...buoys showing 4 to 6 feet seas at 10 seconds but there's 
also energy at 8 seconds so seas will be a bit steep through this 
evening. Northwest winds remain rather light...less than 15 knots. Very 
little change in the pattern through the weekend with continued northwest 
wind and swell. Pressure gradient tightens some Friday and 
Saturday afternoons as high pressure over the NE Pacific 
strengthens a bit with thermal low over northern 
California...increasing winds to 15 to 20 knots with slightly higher 
gusts. Bowen
