NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
252 PM PDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis...strong upper level high pressure will keep very hot 
weather in place through Friday. Temperatures will begin to cool 
slightly on Saturday...but will remain well above normal. A gradual 
cooling trend will then occur as the ridging moves eastward and an 
upper level trough approaches from the north. Conditions will return 
to near normal for the second half of next week as the upper trough 
moves onshore. Monsoonal moisture from the south will bring a slight 
chance of thunderstorms near the Oregon Cascade crest starting over 
the weekend...with the threat continuing through much of next week. 




&& 


Short term...tonight through Sunday Sunday night... 
very hot and dry weather will persist through Friday as a strong upper 
level ridge remains firmly entrenched from the desert SW up through 
the Pacific northwest. Subsidence associated with the ridge has driven 850 mb 
temperatures into the 23 to 25 c range today...which is basically right at 
the climatologically maximum values recorded for this date. As 
expected...it appears that most of the interior lowlands are headed 
toward high temperatures in the triple digits this afternoon. It seems like 
a very good bet that many locations will see their hottest temperatures 
since Aug 2012. In fact...it is highly possible that some spots will 
see the warmest temperatures since July of 2009. Overnight lows will not 
provide much relief for those without air conditioning...likely only 
dropping into the middle 60s over The Lowlands. Lows over the Coast 
Range and Cascade foothills will be even warmer due to the presence 
of a thermal belt caused by the strong low level subsidence. 


The thermal trough that is draped right over the Willamette Valley 
and adjacent foothills this afternoon should drift back toward the 
coast overnight into Friday morning...then move inland again during the 
day tomorrow as the interior heats up. Expect Friday will be a near 
repeat of today. The forecast models are indicating that a little better 
onshore gradient may be generated tomorrow afternoon in response to 
the trough moving inland. It is possible that this may moderate temperatures 
over the northern interior by a couple of degrees...but in general 
expect temperatures to be pretty similar to what we are seeing today. An 
excessive heat warning remains in effect for most of the interior 
lowlands through Friday night...and a heat advisory is in effect for the 
Coast Range...Cascade foothills...and the lower Columbia region. 


The upper level ridge will weaken slightly over the Pacific northwest on Sat. 
More importantly...it appears that the thermal trough will move east 
of the Cascades during the day. This will bring better onshore 
flow and lower temperatures by several degrees...although they will still be 
well above normal. The ridge weakens further sun as upper level low 
pressure begins to dig south along the British Columbia coast. This will 
continue the gradualy cooling trend with inland highs likely in the 
low to middle 90s. 


The forecast models also continue to indicate that some monsoonal 
moisture will move in from the south over the weekend...bringing the 
potential for some isolated thunderstorms in the Oregon Cascades. 
There are no obvious triggers for the convection at this time...but 
the forecast model soundings are showing some middle level 
instability...albeit not that impressive. It will be difficult to 
pinpoint time periods when thunder will be more probable until we get 
closer to the event. Pyle 


&& 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...an upper level trough 
will slowly dig south along the Pacific northwest coast through early next week. 
This will result in a return to a more typical northwest flow 
pattern...with increasing onshore flow and marine influence and 
gradually cooling temperatures. The trough is modeled to move onshore during 
the second half of the week...and should bring temperatures back to near or 
even below average temperatures. There will also be continued chances 
for isolated Cascade thunderstorms for much of next week. Pyle 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions expected to continue throughout northwest Oregon 
and SW Washington through Friday. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions for the next 24 hours. 


&& 


Marine...seas have remained at 5 to 6 feet and just below the square 
sea 7 foot criteria. Spectral guidance indicates this should remain 
the case for at least the next 24 hours so decided to cancel the 
hazardous seas advisory for the central waters unable until we get 
closer to the next event Friday evening at the earliest. Winds have 
been much lighter across the so far today but will increase over 
the next few hours though remain a bit marginal for the small 
craft Wind Advisory criteria. Rapidscat and ascat satellite 
derived winds do indicate sustained winds in the 15 to 20 knots range 
are occurring across the outer waters so will continue the 
advisory for winds as planned. 


No broad changes in the pressure pattern through the weekend. 
This will keep north to northwest winds blowing over the waters through the 
weekend...with a climatological tendency to strengthen in the late 
afternoon and overnight hours and weaken in the morning hours each 
day. Expect to see winds gusting into small craft range off and on 
through the weekend.
