NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
902 PM PDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis...showers will decrease tonight and Tuesday morning as an 
upper trough moves east of the forecast area. The next front will be 
quite wet as it slowly moves north to south through our forecast 
area...slowly spreading in from the northwest Tuesday then slowly 
sinking south through the forecast area Tuesday night and Wednesday. 
Rain will likely linger into Thursday. This front may also produce 
strong coastal winds beginning late Tuesday and continuing into 
Wednesday morning. Another rather wet and possibly windy front is 
expected by the weekend. 
&& 


Short term...tonight through Thursday...the axis of an upper trough 
was moving onshore this evening...and the associated instability 
produced a couple of lines of showers and isolated thunderstorms that 
moved through the valleys in the late afternoon and early evening 
with some heavy downpours that likely affected traffic in the evening 
commute and on area freeways. The showers are easing... but will 
still have a few showers linger into early Tuesday as the upper 
trough finally moves east of the area. 


Attention then turns to the moist energetic system approaching 130w 
this evening that has a 130 knots or so central and eastern Pacific jet 
pushing it along. The models show the overrunning cloud shield 
starting to reach the coast by late Tuesday morning...and continuing 
to spread into Washington and northwest part of our forecast area 
through the day Tuesday. The associated frontal boundary stays hung 
up over western Washington and perhaps the far northwest corner of 
Oregon through Tuesday night...then sags south through northwest 
Oregon during the day Wednesday into Wednesday night. 


This system has a lot of moisture with it...and a strong 300 mb jet 
in addition to strong 850 mb inflow or moisture transport winds. Look 
for substantial rises on area rivers...with the most prone to be 
flashy rivers like the Grays River in Wahkiakum County in southwest 
Washington. However...the front does move enough as it moves south 
through our forecast area that it may keep most rivers from flooding. 
The biggest problem will probably be Urban and Small Stream 
flooding...which will be much more likely...exacerbated by the 
current crop of falling leaves plugging storm drains. 


There is a good wave or possible low center that the nam12 and GFS 
models continue to forecast will ride along the frontal zone toward 
Vancouver Island Tuesday night. Have issued a high wind watch for The 
Headlands and beaches for for late Tuesday into early Wednesday for 
this. 


The front sags slowly into southern Oregon Wednesday night and 
Thursday...with the precipitation breaking up much of our area by 
Thursday. However...there is enough energy rotating around the 
offshore long wave trough to keep some precipitation going on 
Thursday as well. Tolleson 


Long term...Thursday night through Sunday...no changes...previous 
discussion follows. Medium range guidance continue to struggle with 
how to handle the late week and weekend period...with the 00z 
GFS/ECMWF/Gem seeming to trend toward shifting the longwave pattern 
to favor troughing over western North America. This would be a 
significant shift from the overall longwave ridging pattern that has 
dominated the west for the past several months. As such...the 00z 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) now bring another upper trough across the Pacific northwest for more 
showers and cool temperatures through the weekend. Am a bit skeptical of 
this large scale pattern shift... especially considering the large 
pool of above normal sea surface temperatures over the NE Pacific. Therefore 
we remain a bit conservative... keeping probability of precipitation/temperatures closer to climatology 
over the weekend than these 00z models would suggest. Weagle 
&& 


Aviation...mainly VFR conditions with occasional MVFR and mountain 
obscuration in scattered showers through the night. There should be a 
lull in the showers Tuesday morning before the rain returns to the coast 
by late morning with gradually lowering conditions at the coast. 
Winds will also be an issue on the coast with surface winds likely 
gusting to 40 knots at times Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. 
Inland...rain chances increase in the afternoon becoming likely by 
late afternoon or early evening. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR prevailing through Tuesday. There is a 30 
percent chance of MVFR ceilings between 2000 and 3000 feet between 12z and 
18z. 
&& 


Marine...marginal Small Craft Advisory winds will continue this 
evening mainly with gusts to 25 knots but will keep advisory going up to 
the expected gales beginning Tuesday afternoon. There are still 
differences between the models as to the strength...some low end 
gales and one others like the NAM is showing higher end gales Tuesday 
night into Wednesday morning. The NAM brings another low to the north 
Oregon coast Wednesday morning...this is an outlier right now but bears 
watching given the active jet over the North Pacific. A coastal jet 
is expected to form ahead of an occluded front Tuesday night enhancing 
winds near the coast. 


A westerly swell on the order of 10 feet will continue for the next few 
days...but seas are likely to build to around 15 to 18 feet and become 
steeper Tuesday night and Wednesday due to the southerly gales. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...high wind watch from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday 
morning for central Oregon coast-north Oregon coast. 


Washington...high wind watch from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday 
morning for South Washington coast. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 1 PM PDT Tuesday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 
60 nm. 


Gale Warning from 1 PM Tuesday to 11 am PDT Wednesday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out

60 nm.
