NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
243 am PDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis...a strong upper level ridge over the Pacific northwest will 
begin to shift east today and Monday. An upper level low off the 
California coast will steer some moisture north over western Oregon into 
Monday bringing a threat of thunderstorms. An upper level trough 
will move over the area Monday through Thursday for gradual cooling. 
&& 


Short term...radar and satellite showed thunderstorms tending to 
regenerate over coastal parts of SW Oregon and up off the central 
Oregon coast. This is an area at the head of a dry slot seen in 
water vapor imagery which tends to be favored for convection. 
Evening MVFR sounding suggests convection is fairly high 
based...driven by instability aloft and weak divergence aloft. The 
upper ridge dominant the last few days was beginning to shift 
east...allowing the low off the California coast to lift high level moisture 
and marginal instability north. With the southerly flow continuing 
through Sun night it becomes difficult to completely rule out 
convection anywhere...although model soundings suggest instability 
aloft is marginal at best. For the morning will stick with current 
trends and supported best by hrrr...and expand the area for showers 
and thunderstorms north...especially up the coast. By afternoon models return 
to favoring Cascades with best conditions for instability...but 
again with the convective threat high based will carry a threat west to 
the coast. Models tending to indicate a weak shortwave lifting north 
through western Oregon overnight tonight providing a potential focus 
for thunderstorm threat...so will expand chances for thunder further 
north and west into the Coast Range...but keep probability of precipitation low due to marginal 
instability. Weakening of the ridge aloft and an increase in onshore 
flow...especially across the central Oregon Coast Range overnight...will 
contribute to temperatures beginning to moderate today. 800 mb temperatures still 
support inland highs in the lower to middle 90s today so will keep the 
heat advisory in effect today. 


Progressively cooler air pushed in with a stronger northwest onshore flow 
Monday and Tuesday...bringing temperatures down closer to normal by Tuesday. As the 
upper flow turn more SW Monday...and eventually westerly Tuesday to 
convective threat will become limited to the Cascade crest. 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows...the general 
trend in the extended period will be towards cooler weather. Models 
continue to show an upper level trough brushing by the region late 
Tuesday...but keeps most of the energy to our north. Will keep a 
slight chance of thunderstorms over the Lane County Cascades for late 
Tuesday due to some lingering instability. Temperatures return 
towards seasonal normals by Wednesday...but will increase slightly 
for the latter half of the week as a weak upper level ridge builds 
into the Pacific northwest. Models diverge significantly as we go 
into next weekend. As such...have used a broad brush approach for 
next weekend and introduced a slight chance of showers over the South 
Washington Cascades and a slight chance of thunderstorms for the 
Oregon Cascades. /64 


&& 


Aviation...VFR inland this morning but with some middle/high clouds 
from convection over SW Oregon will drift over the region. Slight 
chance of seeing rain/thunder over the southern half of the 
forecast area 10z-17z but chance appears small enough to preclude 
mention in any particular taf. At the coast...shallow IFR stratus 
will continue along the central coast and likely develops along 
the north coast by 11z. This stratus will retreat offshore around 
18z for VFR conditions along the coast. Expect developing cumulus 
Sun afternoon/evening with the possibility of thunderstorms 
expanding over much of the area east of the Coast Range 03z-10z 
Tuesday...but again insufficient confidence to include in any 
particular taf at this time. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions tonight and Sunday. Some 
residual middle/high clouds from convection over SW Oregon will drift 
overhead this morning. Likely see cumulus development this 
afternoon with the potential for a thunderstorm. Chances best S 
and east of terminal and in Cascades...but cannot rule out one 
impacting the terminal during 04z-10z. Cullen 


&& 


Marine...a few thunderstorms offshore are drifting from S to north 
into the outer central Oregon coastal waters early this morning. 
Potential threats are lightning and gusty outflow winds...with the 
threat area expanding to cover much of the coastal waters this 
morning and again in the evening hours. 


Otherwise...little change to the overall pattern for Sunday with 
north winds over the waters. An overnight ascat pass revealed winds 
still around 20 knots over the outer waters...so will allow the 
advisory for winds to continue through 10 am as areas of 
marginally advisory strength winds may still exist. Another Small Craft Advisory 
for winds in effect for this afternoon/evening as more widespread 
gusts to 25 knots expected to redevelop. 


Meanwhile...the persistent northerly winds are maintaining steep 
seas over the waters of 6 to 7 feet at 6 to 8 seconds. 
Therefore...with conditions fluctuating above or very near our 
criteria for hazardous seas...the advisory for hazardous seas 
looks on track for today. Cullen
