NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND 
227 PM PDT TUE MAY  5 2015

.SYNOPSIS...A COLD UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL RESULT IN UNSETTLED
CONDITIONS THROUGH WEDNESDAY. THE AIR MASS REMAINS SOMEWHAT UNSTABLE
WEDNESDAY FOR A RISK OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS. HIGH
PRESSURE STARTS TO RETURN THURSDAY AS THE UPPER LOW SHIFTS FURTHER
SOUTHEAST. DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FRIDAY THROUGH THE
WEEKEND...WITH DAYTIME TEMPERATURES RISING TO SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.  
&&

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY...EARLY AFTERNOON WATER VAPOR
IMAGERY SHOWS THE CLOSED UPPER LOW CENTERED OVER EXTREME SWRN BRITISH
COLUMBIA. MOISTURE SEEMS TO BE CONCENTRATED CLOSE TO THE LOW
CENTER...FOCUSED OVER WRN WA. WATER VAPOR ALSO SHOWS A DRY AIR TONGUE
ROUNDING THE TROUGH BASE ENTERING WRN OREGON. SHOWER ACTIVITY NOT ALL
THAT IMPRESSIVE AS OF YET. KRTX DUAL-POL DOPPLER RADAR SHOWS THE
MAJORITY OF THE ACTIVITY OVER THE NRN HALF OF THE CWA...FAVORED OVER
HIGHER TERRAIN DUE TO THE WLY OROGRAPHIC FLOW. CASCADE WEB CAMS AND
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOW A DECREASING CLOUD TREND OVER THE
HIGHER LANE COUNTY CASCADES...IN THE CORE OF THE DRY AIR ALOFT AS
SEEN IN WATER VAPOR. SNOW LEVELS TO REMAIN NEAR THE CASCADE PASSES
TONIGHT. ACCUMULATIONS TO BE IN THE 1 TO 3 INCH RANGE...BUT WILL HAVE
LITTLE TO NO IMPACT ON MAJOR ROADWAYS. 

MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW THE UPPER LOW MIGRATING E-SE TONIGHT...THEN
SPLITTING INTO TWO PIECES BY WED. LATEST ECMWF AND GFS VALID 18Z WED
SHOW ONE PIECE OVER SRN ALBERTA AND THE MAIN ENERGY OVER
NORTH-CENTRAL OREGON. 12Z GFS HAS 500 MB TEMPS AROUND -28C WED ACROSS
MUCH OF THE CWA WED AFTERNOON. THE STRONG MAY SUNSHINE WILL LIKELY
BOOST SFC TEMPS TO AROUND 60 DEG C IN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY...ABOVE
THE FORECAST CONVECTIVE TEMPERATURE. MODEL LIFTED INDICES EXPECTED TO
BE AROUND -1 TO -2 DEG C FROM THE COAST RANGE EASTWARD. NAM MODEL
SOUNDING FOR KPDX HAS ALMOST 500 J/KG SURFACE-BASED CAPE WED
AFTERNOON...COMPARED TO 250-300 J/KG ON THE GFS. WED SHOULD HAVE
HIGHER POTENTIAL FOR THUNDERSTORMS WITH THE UPPER LOW SETTLING OVER
CENTRAL OREGON. WET-BULB ZERO HEIGHTS WED REMAIN AROUND 4000 FT FOR A
CONTINUED THREAT OF SMALL HAIL IN HEAVIER SHOWERS. THE UPPER LOW
CONTINUES ITS DIVE SOUTH WED NIGHT...ENDING UP OVER NORTH-CENTRAL
CALIFORNIA BY 12Z THU. WILL NEED TO LEAVE SOME LOW-END POPS OVER THE
LANE COUNTY CASCADES WED NIGHT WITH WRAP-AROUND MOISTURE STILL A
THREAT.  

DECIDED TO PULL ALL MENTION OF POPS THU AS THE UPPER LOW SINKS
FURTHER SOUTH. UPPER LEVEL RIDGING CENTERED NEAR 135W AMPLIFIES AND
NUDGES CLOSER TO THE COAST THU AND THU NIGHT...RESULTING IN DRIER
N-NE FLOW ALOFT. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES RISE FROM SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL
WED TO A FEW DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL THU. GFS 850 MB TEMPS GO FROM +8 TO
+10C THU TO +12 TO +13C FRI. ECMWF VALUES LOOK TO BE 1-2C
COOLER...BUT THESE VALUES WOULD YIELD MAX TEMPS AT LEAST TO THE MID
70S INLAND. WEISHAAR

.LONG TERM...FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL
DOMINATE FRIDAY AND SATURDAY FOR DRY AND WARM WEATHER. INLAND
TEMPERATURES WILL WARM TO THE UPPER 70S FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. GUSTY
NORTH WINDS ALONG THE COAST WILL KEEP COASTAL TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW
60S. SUNDAY WILL BE SLIGHTLY COOLER AS AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH 
APPROACHES. A WEAK COLD FRONT MAY BRING SOME LIGHT RAIN SUNDAY NIGHT 
AND MONDAY MORNING. AN UPPER LOW WILL MOVE OVER THE AREA MONDAY 
CONTINUING THE THREAT FOR SHOWERS. THE UPPER TROUGH/LOW WILL RESULT 
IN COOLER TEMPERATURES MONDAY AND TUESDAY WITH HIGHS IN THE 60S AND 
LOWS IN THE MID 40S. TJ
&&

.AVIATION...EXPECT MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH 00Z THURSDAY AS
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE BRINGS SCATTERED SHOWERS TO THE AREA.
AN OCCASIONAL MVFR FLIGHT RESTRICTION WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH ANY
HEAVIER SHOWER. EXPECT SHOWER COVERAGE AND INTENSITY TO DECREASE
AFTER 03Z WEDNESDAY. WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP AFTER 18Z WEDNESDAY.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE WILL GENERALLY
BRING VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH 00Z THURSDAY. SCATTERED SHOWERS THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL WIND DOWN OVERNIGHT...BUT PICK BACK UP
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON WITH A SLIGHT CHANCE OF A THUNDERSTORM
IMPACTING THE TERMINAL. /NEUMAN

&&

.MARINE...AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL REMAIN OVER THE PACIFIC
NORTHWEST THROUGH WEDNESDAY. ASIDE FROM AN OCCASIONAL GUST TO 25
KT FROM A HEAVIER SHOWER...WINDS WILL REMAIN BELOW ADVISORY
CRITERIA. A WESTERLY SWELL CURRENTLY BRINGING SEAS IN THE 8 TO 10
FT RANGE WILL GRADUALLY SUBSIDE TO AROUND 5 TO 7 FT ON WEDNESDAY.

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE NORTHEAST PACIFIC AND THERMAL
LOW PRESSURE OVER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WILL LEAD A SUMMER-LIKE
NORTHERLY WIND PATTERN FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE WORK WEEK.
EXPECT PERIODS OF GUSTY 25 TO 30 KT WINDS...PARTICULARLY SOUTH OF
TILLAMOOK. MODELS CONTINUE TO SUGGEST THERE IS A CHANCE NORTHERLY
WINDS MAY INCREASE AND BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD ON SUNDAY. THERE IS
A CHANCE SEAS COULD BECOME STEEP AND CHOPPY ON SUNDAY OR MONDAY
IF THE GUSTIER NORTHERLY WINDS MATERIALIZE.

OTHERWISE...A WEAK SYSTEM APPROACHING THE REGION EARLY NEXT WEEK
DOES NOT APPEAR LIKELY TO BRING SIGNIFICANT MARINE IMPACTS. /NEUMAN

&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
OR...NONE.
WA...NONE.
PZ...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR HAZARDOUS SEAS UNTIL 5 PM PDT THIS 
     AFTERNOON FOR COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO CASCADE
     HEAD OR OUT 60 NM.

     SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR ROUGH COLUMBIA RIVER BAR UNTIL 9 PM
     PDT THIS EVENING.
