 Special Statement  Statement as of 3:00 PM PDT on October 23, 2014


... Potential for strong wind this weekend for southwest Washington
and northwest Oregon...

A low pressure system is forecast to develop well off the
northern California coast Friday and move northeast toward the
Oregon and Washington coast Friday night... and then move inland
Saturday. There is the potential for high wind along the coast and
windy conditions in the Willamette Valley and southwest Washington
interior lowlands. There is still plenty of uncertainty regarding
the strength and timing of this system. Should high winds
occur... downed trees and power outages would be possible. At this
time it looks like the strongest wind would occur late Saturday
afternoon through the evening.

NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
302 AM PDT FRI OCT 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...A WARM FRONT WILL SPREAD LIGHT RAIN INTO SW OREGON
THIS MORNING AND ACROSS NW OREGON AND SW WASHINGTON IN THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INLAND SATURDAY
AFTERNOON AND EVENING...AND POSSIBLY PRODUCE A BRIEF PERIOD OF STRONG
WIND GUSTS ALONG THE COAST. AN UPPER TROUGH WILL CONTINUE SHOWERS
THROUGH SUNDAY. ANOTHER FRONTAL SYSTEM IS EXPECTED EARLY NEXT WEEK. 

&&

.SHORT TERM...FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...RADAR IMAGERY SHOWS THAT
SHOWERS HAVE MOSTLY EASED THIS MORNING BUT STRATIFORM RAIN WILL
RETURN FROM SOUTH TO NORTH THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS A WARM FRONT
LIFTS OVER THE AREA. THIS WILL ALSO INDUCE OFFSHORE LOW-LEVEL FLOW
THROUGH THE COLUMBIA GORGE AS PRESSURE GRADIENTS INCREASE. THE NORTH
ZONES SHOULD BE DRY FOR AT LEAST THE FIRST HALF OF TODAY AHEAD OF THE
APPROACHING WARM FRONT. 

A LOW WELL OFFSHORE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CONTINUES TO DEEPEN OVERNIGHT
TONIGHT INTO SAT MORNING. ALTHOUGH MODELS AGREE FAIRLY WELL ON THE
TRACK OF THE LOW...AND THE GFS HAS CONSOLIDATED THE SYSTEM INTO ONE
SINGLE LOW INSTEAD OF AN ELONGATED TWO...THERE ARE STILL
DISCREPANCIES ON THE STRENGTH. RAIN IS CERTAIN BASED ON THE TRACK BUT
WINDS WILL DEPEND VERY MUCH ON THE STRENGTH OF THE LOW SO CONFIDENCE
IS LOWER IN THAT REGARD WITH THE SYSTEM. THE NAM AND ECM SHOW
SLIGHTLY SW FLOW THROUGH THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY SATURDAY EVENING WHICH
WOULD BE MORE FAVORABLE FOR HIGHER WINDS THAN THE SLIGHTLY SE FLOW
DEPICTED BY THE GFS. FAVORED THE NAM/ECM SOLUTION WITH COASTAL WIND
GUSTS UP TO 60 MPH SATURDAY AFTERNOON...PARTICULARLY ON THE IMMEDIATE
CENTRAL OREGON COAST...AND VALLEY WIND GUSTS UP TO ABOUT 45 MPH
SATURDAY EVENING BUT THESE NUMBERS MAY CHANGE AS THE MODELS HOPEFULLY
COME INTO BETTER AGREEMENT.

A 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 SAT NIGHT AND SUNDAY. SNOW
LEVELS FALL TO NEAR CASCADE PASS LEVELS SUNDAY. WEAK RIDGING MOVES
OVER THE AREA SUNDAY NIGHT AND INTO MONDAY MORNING WITH RAIN CHANCES
DWINDLING BRIEFLY BEFORE THE NEXT SYSTEM APPROACHES. BOWEN/TJ 

.LONG TERM...MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT...AN ACTIVE WEATHER
PATTERN CONTINUES THROUGH NEXT WEEK. THE NEXT FRONTAL
SYSTEM...INCLUDING THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ANA...WILL MOVE THROUGH
THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY BRINGING CONTINUED RAIN AND
WINDS ALONG THE COAST. SHORTWAVES WILL SUPPORT RAIN THROUGH
WEDNESDAY. BEGINNING AROUND THURSDAY THE MODELS DIVERGE SIGNIFICANTLY
TO THE EXTENT THAT CLIMO SEEMS THE BEST BET AT THIS POINT FOR THE
REMAINING 24 HRS OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.  BOWEN/27

&&

.AVIATION...VFR CONDITIONS WITH A FEW SHOWERS TO CONTINUE 
THROUGH ABOUT 18Z THIS MORNING...MAY BE A FEW SPOTS OF MVFR 
CIGS. AFTER 18Z A WARM FRONT LIFTING N WILL SPREAD SOME RAIN N INTO 
NW OREGON...BUT OVERALL CONDITIONS EXPECTED TO REMAIN VFR...WITH 
RAIN DECREASING AFTER 06Z TONIGHT AS THE WARM FRONT LIFTS INTO WA.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS CONTINUING TODAY AND 
TONIGHT. A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH 20Z...BEFORE A 
MORE GENERAL RAIN DEVELOPS. ALTHOUGH UNLIKELY...THERE IS ABOUT A 10 
PERCENT CHANCE FOR SEEING A SHORT PERIOD OF MVFR CIGS BEFORE 18Z.
 
&&

.MARINE...RATHER BENIGN CONDITIONS TODAY AS LIGHT S WINDS BACK 
AROUND TO THE E LATE IN THE DAY. A LOW PRES SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO 
DEEPEN TO AROUND 995 MB AND APPROACH FROM THE SW TONIGHT...THEN MOVE 
N THROUGH THE COASTAL WATERS SAT BEFORE MOVING INLAND OVER WESTERN 
WA LATE SAT. THE EXACT TRACK AND STRENGTH OF THE LOW ARE STILL IN 
QUESTION...BUT OVERALL EXPECTATION IS FOR SOUTHERLY GALES WITH THIS 
LOW SAT. THE GALES WILL BRING STEEP SEAS WITH WAVE HEIGHTS EXPECTED 
TO PEAK AROUND 17 TO 20 FT LATE SAT...BUT AGAIN...THIS WILL DEPEND 
ON THE TRACK AND STRENGTH OF THE LOW. 

ONCE THE LOW MOVES INLAND MON EVENING...WINDS WILL TURN TO BACK 
TO THE W AND DECREASE ALONG WITH SEAS SUBSIDING. ANOTHER SYSTEM IS 
EXPECTED TO APPROACH FROM THE W EARLY NEXT WEEK...AROUND MON NIGHT. 

&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
OR...NONE.
WA...NONE.
PZ...GALE WATCH FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING FOR 
     COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO CASCADE HEAD OR
     OUT 60 NM.
