Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:46 PM PDT on September 30, 2014


... Coolest weather so far this season expected this week...

The coolest weather so far this season is expected through Wednesday
before temperatures begin to recover Thursday and Friday.

A chilly air mass will be left behind after precipitation tapers off
Tuesday night... leading to chilly overnight night lows Tuesday and
Wednesday nights. Wednesday night could be the coldest night so far
this season for most valley locations. Outlying valleys are expected
to dip into the upper 30s... with more urban areas falling well into
the 40s. Some high elevation valleys... and possibly the Upper Hood
River Valley... may see their first frost of the season Thursday
morning.

Recreationalists hiking or camping... especially in the Cascades...
should prepare themselves for the chilly autumn weather early
this week. People in the typically colder outlying valleys may
want to consider protecting their plants against frost... in case
temperatures fall a couple degrees lower than currently expected
Wednesday night.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
216 PM PDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Synopsis...northwest flow aloft will be across the Pacific northwest 
this afternoon and tonight in the wake of a recent low pressure 
system. An upper ridge will approach the coast Thursday and move 
onshore Friday for dry and warmer weather. Weak offshore flow is 
expected to develop Thursday and continue into Friday. The ridge may 
weaken enough over the weekend to allow some light precipitation over 
the South Washington and far north Oregon coast and Coast Range. 
&& 


Short term...the cloud pattern from this morning has adjusted some 
based on overturning from daytime heating and also from the 
northwest flow over the area. The clouds are most solid in the 
northern forecast zones and over the northern Cascade areas and a 
good part of the Coast Range. The northwest flow will persist 
tonight as the main upper ridge axis remains to our west. The models 
indicate that there might be some brief decrease in the clouds this 
evening with the loss of daytime heating...but overnight cooling 
will lead to a thickening of the low clouds across our northern 
zones...around Portland north...and especially around the higher 
terrain. In areas that do clear tonight...especially south of 
Portland...will likely see areas of fog and low stratus redevelop 
late tonight and Thursday morning. 


The models forecast a light offshore flow pattern developing Thursday 
and Friday...partly due to a system passing well to our north into 
Montana and its trailing higher pressure tonight and Thursday 
morning...and due to good radiational conditions the next couple of 
days that will lead to a cooler air mass east of the Cascades. 
Gradients will remain very light tonight and early Thursday. The 
models show more of a northerly flow developing down the valley with 
a light east flow in The Gorge on Thursday. The gradient turns more 
easterly Thursday night and Friday and the east wind through The 
Gorge will increase then...with gusts to 35 miles per hour or so possible 
around Corbett Thursday night through Friday. The offshore gradient 
decreases late Friday. 


The cool air mass and good radiational conditions will lead to cool 
nighttime temperatures the next few nights. The models forecast dewpoints 
staying in the lower 40s so this may limit how cool we do get...but 
some upper 30s are possible tonight and middle to upper 30s Thursday 
night. 


A weak front tries to sag into our northern coastal waters this 
weekend...but the models have not been very certain with this. 
Otherwise the remainder of the area will see dry and mild conditions 
except cool in the morning with local morning fog or low clouds 
around. Tolleson 


Long term...looks right now like northwest Washington and British 
Columbia may get an atmospheric river event over the weekend. Most of 
the moisture and rainfall should miss US...but the surface high 
pressure system to our west to southwest will push some of the 
moisture southward to the southwest Washington and northwest Oregon 
coast. This brings a chance for showers along our north coast 
starting late Saturday night through Tuesday. 


Elsewhere upper level ridging over the West Coast will keep weather 
fairly benign. Calm winds over the Willamette Valley will make 
conditions favorable for fog to develop each night...and this fog 
will lift to stratus during the day but will be slow to clear. -McCoy 
&& 


Aviation...mostly VFR conditions this afternoon except stratocu may 
occasionally result in patchy MVFR ceilings. Think these clouds will hang 
on into the early evening before clearing leads to radiation fog 
overnight...especially for the interior valleys. Lingering surface 
moisture...calm winds and clear skies is all it takes for IFR fog to 
develop. The main uncertainty is whether there will be enough 
clearing. The fog should be shallow and clear late in the morning or 
early afternoon...especially as offshore winds increase. Kttd will 
likely have easterly gusts up to 30 knots Thursday afternoon. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions through this evening. Radiation 
fog will likely develop late tonight with possibly IFR conditions 
after 9z. One exception is if the clouds this afternoon do not clear 
tonight...then expect ceilings to lower to MVFR around 1k feet or so 
rather than shallow fog. Tj 
&& 


Marine...high pressure over the waters today with a thermal trough 
over the southern Oregon waters will maintain north-NE winds over the 
waters. The thermal trough will shift northward Thursday and the 
winds will become more offshore...and slightly stronger south of 
Cascade Head. Gusts may reach 25 knots south of Cascade Head Thursday 
evening...mainly beyond 20 nm. There will be little change in the 
pressure pattern Friday...except for slightly weaker gusts. A front 
will decay over the northern waters this weekend and weaken the 
surface pressure gradient. A Post-frontal swell will push seas back 
up to 7 or 8 feet Saturday night into Sunday. High pressure will 
rebuild north of the waters Monday and the northerly gradient will 
strengthen. Tj
