NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...update 
National Weather Service Portland or 
604 PM PDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis...a deepening low pressure area well off the northern 
California waters this afternoon will move north to northeast tonight 
and Saturday. Expect a brief period of strong wind behind the low 
pressure area late Saturday afternoon through middle-evening 
..primarily along the central Oregon coast and in the interior 
valleys. An upper level trough over the region Sunday will continue 
shower activity. There will be a short drying period Monday... 
followed by another system Tuesday. The Tuesday system could bring 
another round of significant rainfall to the forecast area. 


&& 
Update...did a quick update to the forecast for this evening as the 
front is lifting north slightly quicker than what models indicated. 
Also updated quantitative precipitation forecast and to reflect the rainfall that was observed with 
the front earlier as it was across Lane County. Satellite imagery 
and surface observations suggests that the front just lifted north 
of Salem. Low clouds are filling in the inland valleys behind the 
front. There is widespread rain north of Salem. Tj 


Previous discussion follows...tonight through Monday...infra-red 
satellite imagery and krtx Doppler radar show a warm front extending 
from the central Oregon coast to north-central Oregon. Light rain 
has reached a kmmv-konp line as of 20z. Rainfall amounts over the 
central Oregon coast and Coast Range through 20z have been rather 
light..generally one-tenth of an inch or less. Offshore low-level 
flow has strengthened a bit since this morning. 20z kttd-kdls 
gradient at -3.3 mb...still slightly more than the 6-hour NAM 
forecast. Have had gusts to 25 miles per hour at Corbett and 35-40 miles per hour at Crown 
Point. Gradient should hold around -3.5 mb through this 
evening...then increase to -5 to -6 mb by 12z Sat. 


Biggest short-term forecast challenge remains the developing low near 
39n 132w. Latest NAM indicated a 997 mb center at 18z. Water vapor 
imagery shows good dry air intrusion on the east flank of the low. It 
is also starting to show signs of elongation...similar to the NAM 
solution. Models have started to come into better agreement with the 
depth and track. By 12z Sat the NAM...GFS and European model (ecmwf) show an 
elongated low...with the primary low center at 41n 129w. The 
NAM...and to some extent the European model (ecmwf)...suggest a second weaker low 
circulation developing off the S Washington or far north Oregon coast 12z Sat. 
The presence of two low centers could result in an overall weaker 
system. At 18z Sat the GFS maintains more of a consolidate low pressure 
center just west of koth. The NAM holds on to two separate low centers 
while the European model (ecmwf) seems to be the weakest of all models with the 
tightest surface gradient along the north California and far S Oregon 
coast. The 12z WRF-GFS is a bit stronger than its 00z run... 
indicating a 3-hour period of 55-60 knots wind gusts along the central 
Oregon coast starting at 21z Sat. The 18z NAM shows 45 knots 975 mb wind 
speeds along the central coast for 21z Sat. Based on all of the 
above...am still not convinced the coast will reach widespread 
high-wind criteria. Would not rule out spotty 55-60 miles per hour wind gusts 
on the central Oregon coast headlands between 18z Sat and 00z 
sun...but do not believe the frequency and coverage warrant a 
highlight. Have a higher degree of confidence for blustery conditions 
in the Willamette Valley. Expect a brief period (2-4 hours) of windy 
conditions as the surface low moves north-NE into SW Washington late Sat 
afternoon and early evening. 12z GFS shows a +13 mb 6-hour pressure change 
bullseye near konp 06z sun...which is pretty close to benchmark 
thresholds to get windy conditions in the valley. Would like to see 
this isobaric change in a more south-to-north orientation. In any 
event...current forecast of 35-45 miles per hour gusts in the Willamette Valley 
late Sat afternoon through early evening looks good. Strongest gusts 
should be S of ksle. Also cannot rule out isolated thunderstorms Sat 
evening...mainly along the coast...as the cold upper trough moves 
ashore. 


This broad upper trough...similar to what was over the area 
Thursday...settles over the region Sunday. This will bring additional 
short-waves through the forecast area for continued precipitation. As 
usual...the Coast Range...SW Washington Willapa Hills and the Cascades will 
have the most numerous showers due to 15-25 knots westerly 850 mb flow. Snow 
levels fall to near Cascade Pass levels as well Sunday. Weak ridging 
moves over the area Sunday night and into Monday. Cut back on probability of precipitation a 
bit for Monday...and future shifts may need to trim them even more. 
Weishaar 


Long term...the long term starts out wet with the next system moving 
into the forecast area Monday night. This system contains the remnants 
of Hurricane Ana...that skirted Hawaii last week. Models may be 
under doing the precipitaton potential with this one. A strong jet 
stream will remain directed at Washington and northern Oregon through Tuesday night. 
Models show large variations beginning Wednesday...but expect the active 
pattern to continue. The European model (ecmwf) and GFS show a trend toward drier 
conditions late next week as a deep low in the Gulf of Alaska 
amplifies the downstream ridge over the intermountain west. Weishaar 


&& 


Aviation...mainly VFR conditions with light rain through 07z. 
Occasional periods of MVFR and IFR ceilings are possible. Expect rain 
chances to decrease after 08z as the warm front moves into Washington. VFR 
conditions expected after 10z. However...there is a 30 percent chance 
of fog and mist developing tomorrow morning. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions expected through tomorrow 
afternoon. Light rain possible through 06z. Winds will likely turn 
to the east after 23z. However...timing may need to be adjusted. 
/64 


&& 


Marine...a deepening low pressure system will approach from the SW 
late tonight and move through the coastal waters on Sat before 
moving inland on late Sat. Gale force winds are expected to start 
late tonight in the central or waters and last through tomorrow 
evening. In the northern or and souther Washington waters expect gale 
conditions to begin early tomorrow morning and continue through 
tomorrow night. Steep seas are expected with the gales with wave 
heights peaking at around 15 feet Saturday evening. 


As the low moves inland winds will become west and decrease with seas 
lowering to around 7 to 9 feet as high pressure builds into the Pacific northwest. 
Another shortwave expected to approach the region early next week 
with seas of 10 to 12 feet possible. /64
