NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION 
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR 
215 PM PST THU MAR  5 2015

.SYNOPSIS...AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRES WILL REMAIN THROUGH 
THE WEEKEND MAINTAINING A DRY AND GENERALLY MILD WEATHER PATTERN.  
THE UPPER RIDGE WILL WEAKEN EARLY NEXT WEEK AND A FRONT MAY BRING 
RAIN TO THE REGION BY TUESDAY.
&&

.SHORT TERM...TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY
DEPICTS ANOTHER GENERALLY CLEAR DAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA WITH SOME
THIN CIRRUS CONTINUING TO STREAM OVERHEAD. WE ARE WELL ON TRACK TO
ANOTHER DAY WITH TEMPERATURES CONTINUING TO PUSH WELL INTO THE 50S
ACROSS THE REGION AT THIS HOUR. EXPECT TEMPERATURES TONIGHT TO REMAIN
COOL...THOUGH LIKELY A FEW DEGREES WARMER THAN LAST NIGHT FOR MANY
LOCATIONS. THIN CIRRUS LIKELY WILL REMAIN OVER THE REGION OVERNIGHT
BUT NONETHELESS...SOME PATCHY FOG MAY DEVELOP IN PARTS OF THE
INTERIOR TONIGHT ESPECIALLY IN THE MORE FOG PRONE LOCATIONS.
MEANWHILE...FORECAST MODELS REMAIN IN DECENT AGREEMENT THAT A WIND
REVERSAL ALONG THE COAST WILL OCCUR...BUT ENOUGH OFFSHORE COMPONENT
WILL REMAIN TO PREVENT A STRONG PUSH OF MOISTURE INTO THE COASTAL
AREAS AND INTO THE INTERIOR ON FRI. STILL THINK THE BULK OF THE
CLOUDS WILL REMAIN OFFSHORE...BUT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT INCREASED
CLOUDS WILL ALSO MAKE THEIR WAY ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COASTLINE. 

LITTLE CHANGE WILL OCCUR INTO THE WEEKEND WITH HIGH PRESSURE
CONTINUING TO DRIVE OUR WEATHER. A RETURN TO MORE OFFSHORE LOW-LEVEL
WINDS AND A DRIER NORTHERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL DECREASE CLOUDS ONCE
AGAIN AND DRIVE ANY COASTAL CLOUDINESS MORE OFFSHORE. HIGH
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMALS FOR THE WEEKEND...WHILE
GRADUAL WARMING IN OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL BRING THEM CLOSER TO NORMALS
AND WELL ABOVE FREEZING FOR MOST LOCATIONS.
&&

.LONG TERM...SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY...THE UPPER RIDGE WILL 
GRADUALLY BREAK DOWN EARLY NEXT WEEK AFTER STARTING WITH THE AXIS 
OVER THE COAST. AS THE UPPER RIDGE EXPANDS EASTWARD MONDAY...MODELS 
ARE SHOWING A SOMEWHAT AGGRESSIVE TROUGH SWING SOUTH FROM ALASKA AND 
EAST ACROSS BRITISH COLUMBIA. THIS APPEARS TO OPEN THE DOOR FOR A 
WARM CORE CUT OFF LOW CENTERED NEAR 150W TO DRIFT TOWARD THE PACNW. 
THE NORTHERN SHORTWAVE MAY BRING VERY LIGHT RAIN TO THE FAR NORTHERN 
REACHES OF THE CWA. THE FILLING UPPER LOW GETS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE 
COAST TO SPREAD RAIN WELL INLAND BY TUESDAY NIGHT. MODELS HAVE 
CONSISTENTLY SHOWN SOME LOOSE VERSION OF THIS SCENARIO FOR A FEW DAYS

NOW SO BUMPED POPS UP TO LOW END LIKELY FROM TUESDAY NIGHT ONWARD. 
THE VARIOUS MEDIUM RANGE MODELS DO CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE WITH THE 
TRACK OF THE UPPER LOW SO CONFIDENCE IN ACTUAL PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS 
REMAINS VERY LOW BUT FIND IT DIFFICULT TO EXPECT ANY AREA GETTING 
MORE THAN AN INCH DURING THE TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY TIME FRAME. 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE MODESTLY WARM WITH SNOW LEVELS FAIRLY HIGH SO 
EXPECT NO SIGNIFICANT ADDITION TO THE CASCADE SNOW PACK. /JBONK
GRADUALLY BREAK DOWN EARLY NEXT WEEK AFTER STARTING WITH THE AXIS 
OVER THE COAST. AS THE UPPER RIDGE EXPANDS EASTWARD MONDAY.
&&

.AVIATION...VFR THROUGH FRI. THERE MAY BE SOME PATCHY FOG 08Z-
18Z FRI...PRIMARILY ALONG THE S WA AND N OREGON COAST NEAR THE
BAYS...THE NEHALEM RIVER VALLEY AND POSSIBLY AT AND IN THE
VICINITY OF KEUG.

KPDX AND APPROACHES...VFR THROUGH FRI MORNING WITH THIN CIRRUS AT
TIMES. WEISHAAR
&&

.MARINE...QUIET WEATHER PATTERN OVER THE WATERS FOR THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. 1923Z ASCAT PASS SHOWED GENERAL N-NE WIND AT 10 KT
OR LESS...EXCEPT E NEAR THE SHORELINE. WHAT IS LEFT OF THE WEAK
THERMALLY INDUCED TROUGH IS LIKELY LOCATED OVER THE INTERIOR
VALLEYS. LATEST NAM MODEL STILL SUGGESTING A WIND REVERSAL OVER
THE WATERS TONIGHT. NORTH WIND RETURNS FOR THE WEEKEND WITH 15 TO
20 KT GUSTS OVER THE FAR SRN WATERS SAT NIGHT AND SUN. LONGER
RANGE MODELS STARTING TO SHOW A LITTLE MORE AGREEMENT. CLOSED
UPPER LOW OVER THE CENTRAL PAC MON DRIFTS CLOSER TO THE CALIFORNIA
AND S OREGON COAST TUE AND WED. GFS HAS GONE AWAY FROM ITS COOL
AND WET NWLY UPPER FLOW PATTERN TO THE MORE MILD AND SOMEWHAT
DRIER SWLY PATTERN OF THE ECMWF AND GEM. 

SEAS HOLDING IN THE 3 TO 5 FOOT RANGE FOR FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
SPECTRAL ANALYSIS SUGGESTS THERE WILL BE MULTIPLE 2 OR 3 FOOT
COMPONENTS THROUGH AT LEAST FRI...PRIMARILY FROM THE WNW AND SSW.
ENP GUIDANCE SHOWS 12 TO 14 FT WAVE HEIGHTS NEXT WED NIGHT AND
THU. BELIEVE THIS TO BE OVERDONE AS THE CLOSED SURFACE LOW IS NOT
ALL THAT STRONG IN THE MODELS. THE MODELS ALSO DO NOT SHOW ANY
SIGNIFICANT FETCH REGION TO DEVELOP WAVES THAT HIGH. BROUGHT SEAS
UP TO 10 FT FOR NOW. WEISHAAR
&&

.PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
