NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
308 am PST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis...mild and very wet weather is expected to continue over 
southwest Washington and northwest Oregon much of today. Rainfall 
rates will gradually ease through the day...then decrease more 
substantially tonight and Monday as an upper ridge builds over the 
northeast Pacific and squeezes off the flow of moisture. Several 
rivers have reached flood stage...and the threat of flooding will 
continue through today and possibly into tonight before easing. 
Longer range model output is suggesting a colder air mass will settle 
over the Pacific northwest late next week with snow down into at 
least the Cascade foothills and Coast Range as a cooler system from 
the northwest moves through Wednesday. 
&& 


Short term...warm frontal overrunning Saturday brought very heavy 
rain to southwest Washington and northwest Oregon...and caused 
several rivers to reach flood stage. The warm front moved through 
late in the day Saturday...and temperatures warmed dramatically in 
many areas late Saturday and overnight Saturday night. The mild air 
mass continues early this morning. Westerly flow continues to 
transport moisture and precipitation into our forecast area early 
this morning...but the low level flow has turned more westerly and 
National Weather Service Doppler radar is showing some rain shadowing 
in the Lee of the Coast Range as a result. 


Rainfall continues to be orographically enhanced over the Coast Range 
and Cascades...but intensities are less than what was seen Saturday. 
The models are showing that the westerly flow will start to buckle 
today...then amplify into a building upper ridge in the northeast 
Pacific tonight and Monday...easing the onshore flow and decreasing 
the precipitation dramatically. There will probably be enough 
precipitation today to keep a threat of flooding on area rivers...but 
some will begin to lose steam and may even crest. For more 
details...see the various flood bulletins in effect. 


High tides this morning in combination with high flow in coastal 
rivers will likely lead to areas of coastal flooding due to tidal 
overflow. Will continue the previously issued coastal Flood Advisory 
for that today. 


Even though the precipitation decreases considerably Monday...the 
European model (ecmwf) model does hang onto a little more precipitation than the 
GFS...and have kept some low probability of precipitation as a result on Monday. 


The next system starts to drop into the Pacific northwest on 
Tuesday...but its main effects of more rain and significantly 
lowering snow levels will occur mainly on Wednesday. Tolleson 
&& 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Tuesday night through Saturday...models remain consistent in 
flattening an upper level ridge late Tuesday into Wednesday. There 
are some model discrepancies concerning how far south the next 
shortwave will move into the Pacific northwest...but overall an upper 
level trough will sag south and move inland early Wednesday. This 
will usher in another batch of cool and rainy conditions...with snow 
levels dropping to near 2000 feet so expect snow showers over Cascade 
passes right in time for Holiday travel. Again...Holiday travelers 
headed over the Cascade passes will certainly need to monitor the 
forecast. Lingering moisture continues into Christmas day...but will 
likely be occasional showers with partly cloudy skies for the most 
part. Colder northerly flow persists into early next weekend...with 
drier conditions expected for Friday. A new development in the 12z 
model runs has been another shortwave disturbance dropping south over 
the forecast area late Friday... bringing a threat for rain and snow 
on the mountains. /27 
&& 


Hydrology...numerous flood warnings already in effect...including 
major floods for the marys and Clackamas rivers. Flooding along the 
mainstem Willamette looks unlikely at this point. See the latest 
warnings and flood statements for details. A slow decrease in rain 
rates early this morning is expected to continue today. The rain will 
decrease more tonight and Monday. Expect flooding concerns to start 
to ease later today and especially tonight and Monday. 
&& 


Aviation...moderate onshore flow...with plenty of middle and high 
clouds over region. Still have widespread MVFR on coastal areas with 
pockets of MVFR ceilings inland. Not much change today into this evening. 
Higher terrain...especially Cascades...will continue to be obscured 
in clouds and precipitation through tonight. 


Kpdx and approaches...mostly VFR through this evening...with showers. 
Expect occasional but brief periods through 18z for ceilings dropping 
through 18z today. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...west to SW winds 15 to 20 knots today...but will gradually ease 
tonight and become more west to northwest. Seas running 14 to 16 feet this 
am...but these too will be slowly subsiding. Likely to hold near 10 
to 11 feet through midweek. 


Another quickly moving front will arrive later Tuesday and Wednesday...with 
some potential for brief period of winds gusting 25 knots. 
Otherwise...second half of this week will be much more benign. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...Flood Watch through Monday afternoon for all of northwest Oregon. 
Coastal Flood Advisory from 9 am to 3 PM for the north 
and central Oregon coast. 


Washington...Flood Watch through Monday afternoon extreme SW Washington. 
Coastal Flood Advisory from 9 am to 3 PM to for S Washington coast. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds today on all coastal waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas through Monday 
afternoon on all coastal waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia bar conditions 
through tonight.
