NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR 
908 AM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...THE UPPER LEVEL LOW THAT BROUGHT ABUNDANT RAIN TO
SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND NORTHWEST OREGON THE PAST TWO DAYS WAS
MOVING EAST OF THE AREA THIS MORNING WITH CONTINUED ONSHORE FLOW BUT
DECREASING SHOWERS. A WEAK UPPER RIDGE WILL BEGIN MOVING INTO THE
AREA THROUGH TONIGHT AND FRIDAY IN ITS WAKE...WITH MORE AFTERNOON
SUNSHINE AND GRADUAL WARMING ON FRIDAY. THE UPPER RIDGE WILL AMPLIFY
OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SATURDAY AND SUNDAY FOR MORE SUNSHINE AND
SIGNIFICANTLY WARMING TEMPERATURES...AND WITH LESS LOW CLOUDS. AN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL REMAIN INLAND OVER THE NORTHWEST U.S. THROUGH
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WITH SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT BUT HIGH 500 MB
HEIGHTS...FOR SOME MARINE INFLUENCE MAINLY NEAR THE COAST...AND A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLY BRUSHING THE OREGON CASCADE CREST...AND
CONTINUED WARM WEATHER INLAND.
&&

.SHORT TERM...THE LOW THAT HAD PLAGUED SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON AND
NORTHWEST OREGON THE PAST TWO DAYS WITH COPIOUS RAINFALL HAS MOVED
EAST OF THE CASCADES IN WASHINGTON AND WILL CONTINUE MOVING EAST
TODAY. THE SURFACE LOW CENTER MOVED ONSHORE ALONG THE CENTRAL
WASHINGTON COAST AROUND 10Z EARLY THIS MORNING. SIGNIFICANT ONSHORE
FLOW WILL CONTINUE TODAY IN THE LIGHT WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT IN ITS
WAKE...WITH A FEW SHOWERS REMAINING...ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTH COAST
RANGE AREAS AND THE NORTHERN CASCADES FROM MAYBE DETROIT OR SO
NORTHWARD. THERE IS A SMALL RISK OF A SHOWER IN THE NORTHERN VALLEYS
BUT THE CHANCE IS RATHER SMALL THE REMAINDER OF TODAY. CLOUDS WILL
CONTINUE TO PERSIST THROUGH MUCH OF TODAY...AND POSSIBLY INTO THE
EVENING BEFORE BEGINNING TO BREAK UP. AREAS DOWN NEAR EUGENE MAY
BREAK UP A LITTLE EARLIER...MORE IN THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. AREAS
ON THE NORTH COAST AND IN SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON MAY NOT BREAK AT ALL
BEFORE CLOUDS RETHICKEN AND SPREAD BACK IN TONIGHT.

THE MODELS REALLY DO NOT SHOW MUCH IF ANY UPPER RIDGING TONIGHT...
WITH THE UPPER FLOW EVEN SLIGHTLY CYCLONIC AT 12Z FRIDAY. THUS EXPECT
FAIRLY DECENT LOW CLOUDS COVERAGE AGAIN LATER TONIGHT AND ON FRIDAY
MORNING ACROSS OUR FORECAST AREA. THERE IS A WEAK DISTURBANCE AROUND
50N/135W THIS MORNING THAT MAY BE THE FEATURE DEVELOPING SOME PATCHY
QPF ALONG THE NORTH COAST FORECAST ZONES EARLY FRIDAY...AND WILL
LEAVE THE PATCHY DRIZZLE IN.

500 MB HEIGHTS DO BEGIN TO BUILD A BIT FRIDAY SO WE SHOULD SEE MORE
SUNSHINE DEVELOP FRIDAY AFTERNOON THAN WE HAVE SEEN IN SEVERAL DAYS.
TEMPS INLAND SHOULD PUSH INTO THE UPPER 70S TO NEAR 80. CLOUDS AT THE
COAST MAY AGAIN TEND TO HANG ON FOR A WHILE IN THE AFTERNOON DUE TO
THE WEAK DISTURBANCE THAT CAUSES THE PATCHY MORNING DRIZZLE.

THE UPPER RIDGE AMPLIFIES IN EARNEST FRIDAY NIGHT AND ESPECIALLY
SATURDAY...WITH 500 MB HEIGHTS INTO THE LOWER TO MID 580S BY
AFTERNOON. AFTER SOME BRIEF MORNING LOW CLOUDS INLAND ALONG THE
COLUMBIA RIVER...LOOK FOR PLENTY OF SUNSHINE AND INLAND TEMPS INTO
THE MID 80S ON SATURDAY. TOLLESON

.LONG TERM...NO CHANGES. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS...HIGH PRESSURE
WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AHEAD OF A
SHORTWAVE TROUGH...FORECAST TO COME ONSHORE SOMETIME LATE SUNDAY
NIGHT OR MONDAY MORNING. THERE IS STILL UNCERTAINTY ON THE TIME THIS
SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO OUR AREA AND THE LOCATION OF ANY ASSOCIATED
PRECIPITATION.THE WAVE IS UNRESOLVED IN THE MEAN 500-MB HEIGHT
FIELD FROM GEFS AND NAEFS...BUT THE GFS AND ECMWF BOTH HAVE IT MOVING
THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT OR EARLY MONDAY MORNING. BEHIND THIS
SYSTEM...THE LARGE UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO BUILD
IN AMPLITUDE AND WESTWARD AND WILL BECOME CENTERED OVER THE ROCKIES
BY MID-WEEK.  SOUTHWESTERLY UPPER-LEVEL FLOW AND CLEAR SKIES INLAND
WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES FAIRLY WARM OVER OUR AREA TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY. -MCCOY
&&

.AVIATION...A MIX OF VFR AND MVFR IN SCATTERED SHOWERS THIS MORNING
WILL GRADUALLY GIVE WAY TO WIDESPREAD VFR CONDITIONS TODAY. ALSO
EXPECT BREEZY SSW WINDS TO TURN WESTERLY AND SUBSIDE LATER THIS
MORNING. BY 19Z...EXPECT WE WILL SEE VFR CONDITIONS WITH INCREASING
BREAKS BETWEEN CLOUDS AND ONLY A FEW SHOWERS REMAINING. SHOULD SEE
WIDESPREAD CLEARING AFTER 03Z AS THE AIR MASS STABILIZES.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...MOSTLY VFR CONDITIONS TODAY. THE ONLY EXCEPTION
MAY BE A BRIEF PERIOD OF MVFR CIGS THROUGH 18Z IN A PASSING SHOWER.
CLOUDS BREAKING UP SIGNIFICANTLY LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND THIS
EVENING. PYLE
&&

.MARINE...LOW PRES MOVED INLAND THIS MORNING AND WINDS OVER THE
COASTAL WATERS NOW SHIFTING TO THE NW. AS THE LOW MOVES FARTHER
INLAND...WINDS WILL EASE AND TURN MORE WESTERLY LATER THIS AM INTO
THIS AFTERNOON.

SEAS GENERALLY 7 TO 9 FT ON THE WATERS N AT CURRENT...WITH PERIODS
STILL SHORT AT AROUND 9 SEC. HOWEVER...EXPECT SEAS TO SUBSIDE TODAY
AND TONIGHT...WITH 4 TO 5 FT BY LATE EVENING OVER MOST OF THE WATERS.

HIGH PRES WILL THEN BUILD OVER NE PAC TONIGHT AND FRI...WITH THERMAL
LOW PRES BUILDING OVER NW CALIF. THIS WILL BRING A MORE TYPICAL
SUMMERTIME PATTERN OF GUSTY NORTHERLY WINDS...AND POTENTIALLY STEEP
SEAS...ESPECIALLY S OF NEWPORT. PYLE/ROCKEY
&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
OR...NONE.
WA...NONE.
PZ...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR WINDS UNTIL 9 AM PDT THIS MORNING FOR 
     COASTAL WATERS FROM CAPE SHOALWATER WA TO CASCADE HEAD OR OUT
     60 NM.
