Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 2:52 PM PDT on September 22, 2014


... The first organized frontal system of the season to bring rain
and much cooler temperatures to southwest Washington and northwest
Oregon on Tuesday and Wednesday...

The fall equinox occurs at 729 PM PDT Monday. Right on cue... the
first organized frontal system of the fall will begin to move
onshore Tuesday. Expect widespread moderate to heavy rain to
accompany the front as it pushes across the region later Tue into
early Wed... along with some gusty winds along the coastal beaches
and headlands. This system will also usher in a showery and
significantly cooler weather pattern that will last through the
remainder of the week.

Rainfall totals from Tuesday through the end of the week are
expected to reach near an inch over the interior lowlands... and 1
to 2 inches for the coast and mountains. The colder air mass will
bring snow levels into the high Cascades... and some of the higher
mountain ski resorts may even see some snowflakes. Motorists are
urged to use caution on the roadways over the next few days.
Given the long period of dry weather that has preceded this
front... residual oil and grease on the Road surfaces will likely
become quite slick at the onset of the rain.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
247 PM PDT Monday Sep 22 2014 


Synopsis...a major shift from our weekend warmth to a cooler fall 
pattern is occurring right on time...as the autumnal equinox occurs 
at 729 PM PDT this evening. Low clouds should clear out some before 
sunset...but plenty of clouds remain upstream as a weakening frontal 
system approaches the coast. This system should spread some rain 
onshore by later tonight with rain chances reaching inland areas by 
Tuesday. A strong low pressure system is developing well offshore... 
and is expected to bring more substantial rain Tuesday night through 
Wednesday. An upper trough will support cool and showery weather 
through Friday. 


&& 


Short term...tonight through Thursday...after 18 straight days of 
daily temperatures at or above normal at Portland and Eugene 
airports...it appears we are finally in for a period of below normal 
temperatures which should last for the remainder of the week. 


A seemingly permanent ridge has been dominating the Pacific northwest 
for much of the Summer...with occasional brief breaks as weak 
disturbances brush by. However it appears this upper ridge is 
breaking down in earnest as strong Pacific low pressure takes shape 
near 42n/145w and begins to push a potent frontal system toward the 
Pacific northwest coast. This system...and its associated upper level 
low/trough...will be the dominant weather feature for much of this 
week starting early Tuesday and continuing through at least Friday. 


A bit of frontogenesis aloft combined with some middle-level moisture to 
touch off a couple showers and a stray thunderstorm or two along the 
Washington Cascades today. This frontal zone should push east tonight 
and Tuesday as a rather disorganized shortwave trough off the Oregon 
coast lifts NE across the Puget Sound sound. This system could bring a 
little rain to our north coastal zones...and there is the outside 
chance of a stray elevated thunderstorm over the S Washington Cascades. 
Chances of this appear to be less than 10 percent so we omitted it from 
the forecast...the better chance appears to be farther north into the 
Seattle County Warning Area and even that threat is rather minimal. So...expect some 
areas of light rain along the north coast going into Tuesday morning... 
which may attempt to spread farther inland as the day progresses. 
Temperatures Tuesday should be similar to today...low to middle 70s inland with 
cooler temperatures along the coast. 


A weak frontal zone associated with this first shortwave will should 
dissipate right over western Washington/or Tuesday. The next...more impressive 
frontal system will be right on its heels as the above mentioned 
large parent low spawns a secondary low along its frontal system just 
off the Oregon coast Tuesday afternoon and evening. This will eventually 
drive a stronger cold front onshore Tuesday night/Wed...but with the jet 
stream running parallel to the front it will be a slow mover. 


There will be two things to watch closely with this Tuesday night/Wednesday 
system...especially considering it is the first real fall-like front 
of the season. 1...the potential for the first decent beaches and 
headlands wind event of the season... and 2...the first widespread 
decent rainfall of the season. 


The potential for gusty coastal winds would be maximized if the 
secondary low develops right off the Oregon coast as the 18z 
NAM...12z GFS and 12z European model (ecmwf) suggest. This feature is difficult to 
pick out by simply looking at isobars and can be better distinguished 
by determining where the frontal triple-point is in conjunction with 
the leading edge of a 100 kt+ jet stream maxima. The tendency is for 
wind to overachieve what models would expect when this occurs...at 
least for beaches and headlands. However pressure gradients appear to 
be oriented too much east-west to really affect the coastal 
communities with strong wind...it will just be breezy there. At 03z 
Wednesday...the 18z NAM continues to support a coastal jet signature with 
south winds 50 kt+ at 950 mb. This may be enough to produce 
borderline high wind criteria gusts for the beaches and headlands. 
Since a lot depends on timing...we are still being a bit conservative 
with our wind forecast along the coast late Tuesday. 


As for rainfall...models show the Tuesday night/Wednesday front latching on to 
an increasing amount of tropical moisture as it moves slowly onshore. 
12z GFS shows this system entraining precipitable water well in 
excess of 1 inch as it moves onshore...actually upwards of 1.50 
inch...which is quite impressive for an autumn-like frontal system. 
So the potential is there for periods of moderate to heavy rain... 
enhanced quite a bit by good jet dynamics and strong orographics for 
south-favored slopes. 1-3 inches of rain are possible on such 
slopes...with upwards of an inch possible for The Lowlands. Will 
need to monitor burn scar areas for the potential for debris 
flows/flash flooding...particularly along the Clackamas river 
Highway which is in a Steep Canyon to begin with. 


By Thursday the main frontal zone will slowly shift east into the 
Cascades...leaving US in an upper level trough. Expect temperatures to be 
cooler than normal with unsettled...showery weather. Snow levels will 
probably get down as low as 7000 feet...not quite down to Timberline 
Lodge. But still...a touch of fall right on cue as autumn begins this 
evening at 729 PM PDT.Weagle 


Long term...cool and cloudy weather continues into Friday as the forecast 
models bring the axis of the broad upper level trough directly over 
the Pacific northwest. There will likely be some remaining scattered 
showers...particularly during the afternoon and early evening. Forecast 
confidence decreases considerably as we go into next weekend. The 
last few runs of the GFS move the upper level low off to the east 
and show upper level ridging nosing into the Pacific northwest. This would 
bring warmer and drier conditions to the Pacific northwest for Sat and sun. 
Meanwhile...the European model (ecmwf) and Canadian models are tending to keep the 
much cooler and showery weather in place through the weekend. Given 
the variety of model solutions...will just keep a middle of the Road 
forecast with moderate temperatures and slight chances for showers in place for 
Sat and sun. Upper level low pressure over the Gulf of Alaska is 
modeled to bring the next front into the Pacific northwest either late in the 
weekend or early next week...depending on whether the weekend Pacific northwest 
ridging develops. The brunt of this front is expected to remain to 
our north. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...stratus has lifted to VFR across much of the region 
this afternoon...and has begun to scatter out for most areas 
outside of the coast and north Willamette Valley. Variable middle and 
high clouds continue to push into the region ahead of a weakening 
frontal boundary. As front approaches the coast...expect a return 
to MVFR or perhaps high IFR ceilings and rain this evening for the 
coastal areas. Some light rain spreads inland later tonight or 
early Tuesday but VFR conditions should prevail. 


Kpdx and approaches...variable middle and high clouds increase 
tonight with chance for some light rain after 11z...but expect VFR 
conditions to prevail. 


&& 


Marine...south winds continue below advisory levels this evening 
but will increase later tonight as a stronger front approaches 
the region Tuesday with increasing winds. Small Craft Advisory in 
effect from 11 PM tonight as winds will increase to 20-25 knots with 
gusts to 30. Also issued a gale watch starting Tuesday evening as 
gusts will increase into the 35-40 knots range. Winds will be 
strongest through early Wednesday morning before easing somewhat...but 
likely remaining above 25 knots through at least late Thursday night. 
Models also suggest the potential for a coastal jet to set up 
near shore with perhaps stronger gusts slightly above the surface. 


Seas remain below 7 feet through early Tuesday...but will increase above 
10 feet late Tuesday night. Expect seas to peak around 16 feet Wednesday evening 
and night...but recent model guidance has trended higher so some 
potential to see slightly bigger seas if this continues. Seas will 
ease through the end of the week...dropping below 10 feet sometime 
Friday. Cullen
