NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland 
854 PM PDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Synopsis...mild and mostly dry weather will continue through Monday as 
a flat upper level ridge remains over the Pacific northwest. A cold front will 
push across the region Monday evening ushering in a much cooler and 
more seasonable air mass along with showers and lower snow levels 
that will last through the end of the week. 


&& 


Short term...occasional light rain or sprinkles continue along the 
Washington coast this evening...but this will lift north a bit more 
overnight. But models differ on how far north. So will maintain low probability of precipitation 
for that area into Monday morning. Elsewhere expect dry weather 
to continue through Monday as the flat upper ridge holds. Good 
radiational conditions tonight over much of the southeast part of the are 
will allow temperatures to dip down close to normal...with above normal 
afternoon temperatures returning Monday. 


Models remain similar with the next system arriving Monday night... 
pushing a cold front inland during the evening. Time height cross 
sections show strong lift and moisture below 500 mb to justify 
categorical probability of precipitation for Monday night. This Ushers in a cooler unstable air 
mass for Tuesday and continuing into Wednesday as a cold upper trough moves 
across. With 800 mb temperatures expected to drop a few degrees below zero c 
surface high Tuesday and Wednesday are likely to come back down closer to 
normal. Model soundings indicating good instability Tuesday...at least 
by pacnw standards...with GFS and NAM cape values maxing out in 
triple digits. With the top of the unstable layer approaching 20k feet 
in addition to showers likely will need to include a chance for 
thunder in the afternoon and evening as the cold trough aloft moves 
across. Another shortwave with a cold pool aloft...500 mb temperatures again 
down near -32 degree...will keep slight chance for thunder again Wednesday. 


Long term...the cold upper trough of midweek is depicted by models 
exiting the region Thursday...with a weak ridge moving across late Thursday 
and Friday. GFS and European model (ecmwf) both indicate some light residual 
precipitation Thursday...but with upper dynamics shifted east and mainly 
just some shallow low level moisture left will cut back on probability of precipitation a 
bit for Thursday. 12z model runs also a bit slower in digging in the next 
trough and cold front late Friday so will back off on probability of precipitation across the S 
part of the forecast area Friday. Over the weekend models now tending 
to dig the next trough down off the coast...close enough to push a 
front through Sat and keep the region in a cool unstable air mass 
for sun. 
&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions expected to continue through tonight 
with variable high clouds. Near kast scattered-broken ceilings near 2500 feet 
kast will probably affect that area through the night but should 
be gone middle midday Monday. Another concern is IFR stratus on the 
coast working its way up to kast later tonight. Last good 
visible Sat image showed stratus had developed as far north as 
Pacific City. So it seems probable some IFR ceilings will make it to 
kast later tonight given the light onshore flow. The low stratus 
should pull offshore a little by midday Monday. 


Elsewhere...VFR likely persists with variable high clouds. May 
again see shallow fog or stratus develop late tonight/early Monday 
particularly in the South Valley and in more fog-prone locations. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions continue tonight and Monday. 
/26 


&& 


Marine...southerly winds expected to increase on Monday ahead of 
the next frontal system that will cross the waters tomorrow. Small 
Craft Advisory for winds will begin at 5 am in the north where 
winds will increase to 20 knots. Expect winds to peak around 25 knots 
with gusts to 30 knots during the late afternoon and evening hours. 
Models are in good agreement that stronger winds will not arrive 
in the southern waters until the afternoon so the advisory begins 
at 2 PM for the central Oregon waters. Winds should ease by 11 PM 
across all waters. 


Meanwhile seas remain around 10 to 11 feet over northern water. 
Sparse observations make it a bit tougher to discern if seas have 
dropped off a bit in the south...so elected to maintain the 
advisory for hazardous seas as is...through 5 am. This will likely 
need to be extended in the north...but suspect enough of a respite 
in seas will occur in the south to let it expire. However...seas 
again will build to near 12 feet across all waters behind the front 
and into Tuesday. Cullen

Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas tonight on all 
coastal waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for winds for 5 am to 11 PM Monday on 
coastal waters from Cascade Head to Florence. 
Small Craft Advisory for winds for 2 PM to 11 PM Monday on 
coastal waters from Cascade Head to Florence. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Columbia River bar
