NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
309 am PST sun Feb 14 2016 


Synopsis...a warm front will remain over southwest Washington and 
northwest Oregon today...slowly lifting north into western Washington 
tonight and Monday with rain decreasing from the south as an upper 
ridge builds some along the West Coast. The front will sag back south 
into southwest Washington and far northwest Oregon Tuesday as a cold 
front...then lift back north and weaken as a warm front for drying 
again Tuesday night. The cold front with the next system will 
approach the Pacific northwest Wednesday then move through the 
forecast area Wednesday night into Thursday with lowering snow levels 
in the Cascades Thursday. Another Pacific front is expected Friday. 
&& 


Short term...a warm front moved into southwest Washington and 
northwest Oregon Saturday which will linger over the area today. The 
first and strongest wave moved through Saturday evening with a period 
of rather heavy rain over the area as precipitable water values of 
around 1.2 inches were fed into the area by 50 knots 850 mb winds. 


This wave moved eastward and the rain let up for a while overnight 
Saturday night...but now the next wave has begun moving into the 
area early this morning and will continue over our forecast area 
this morning. Amounts will be good...but less than those Saturday 
evening as 850 mb winds will be between 30 and 40 knots this morning. 


Temperatures in the South Washington and far north Oregon Cascades are 
still supporting snow down to around 4500 or 5000 feet this 
morning...and will extend the Snow Advisory until 9 am. Expect snow 
levels to rise well Above All the passes by then. 


500 mb heights will start to build some later today and tonight... 
beginning to push the warm front slowly north of our area with rain 
decreasing from the south tonight and Monday. On Monday...the main 
chance of any rain will be across our northern zones...mainly 
Portland northward or so. With the warm front mainly north of our 
area Monday...we will be in the warm sector and afternoon temperatures in 
the valleys have a chance of reaching the upper 50s to middle 60s again. 


The warm front will reverse course and begin to sag south into the 
north part of our forecast late Monday night and on Tuesday. 
However...the models have had trouble with the details of this idea. 
The current crop of models are suggesting the rain could spread south 
to around a Pacific City to Wilsonville line or so before stalling. 
The models are then indicating the front will play yo yo and lift 
back north as a warm front as it weakens late Tuesday and Tuesday 
night for more drying from south to north. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Tuesday night through Friday...the upper ridge responsible for the 
drying trend Monday/Tuesday will shift east midweek... with models showing 
good consensus in bringing a well defined upper trough into the Pacific 
northwest and possibly California Wednesday night/Thu. This will cause rain 
chances to increase later Wednesday...with cool and showery weather 
lingering into Thursday. Air mass will start out rather warm with snow 
levels well above the Cascade passes Wednesday. Colder air will move in 
with the upper trough...with snow levels lowering to 3000 to 3500 
feet in showers by Thursday. Expect temperatures to drop back to near normal 
late week as a result of the upper trough...possibly even a little 
below normal. Models show decent agreement that this upper trough 
will be followed by a more progressive frontal system for more rain 
and Cascade snow Friday/Friday night. Weagle 
&& 


Aviation...another batch of warm frontal rain is now affecting the 
area. Flight conditions vary widely across the area this morning with 
IFR/LIFR on the coast and MVFR inland. There is more VFR between ksle 
and keug as of 10z but will probably see more widespread MVFR in that 
area this morning through afternoon as the rain extends further 
south. Expect conditions to improve to a mix of VFR and MVFR this 
evening as the warm front lifts north of the area. However moist 
stable southwest flow may limit improvement at the coast to the MVFR 
category. Expect the mountains to remain obscured through tonight as 
850 mb flow results in enhanced orographic lift. 


Kpdx and approaches...MVFR ceilings around 1500 to 2000 feet likely to 
continue through 00z Monday. Then better chances for high end MVFR to 
VFR tonight. 
&& 


Marine...another warm front affecting the area today and bring Small 
Craft Advisory winds and seas across the area. As of 2 am winds have 
eased over the waters north of Cascade Head but will increase this 
morning. However near shore waters south of Cascade Head remained 
gusty overnight with occasional gust to around 35 knots. Wind have begun 
to ease as models show so expect winds to remain in the advisory 
category through today. Winds ease late today and tonight. Marginal 
Small Craft Advisory winds for the northern waters particularly from 
20 to 60 nm may continue through Monday. Another system arrives Wednesday 
and Thursday. There are considerable uncertainties in the forecast models for 
the second half of the week...but it appears that there will be 
potential for gales at times. 


A long period northwest swell will maintain seas 11 to 13 feet today. Seas 
will subside to around 10 feet Sun afternoon and dip below 10 feet this 
evening. Latest enp run has seas increasing to near 15 feet late next 
week and possibly near 20 feet next weekend. Want to see a few more 
runs before going that high. Capped seas to around 15 feet for now. /Mh
