 Heat Advisory  Statement as of 4:25 am PDT on July 4, 2015


... Heat advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PDT Sunday for
much of the interior lowlands in northwest Oregon and southwest
Washington including the central Oregon Coast Range and the
Cascade foothills...

A heat advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PDT Sunday.

* High temperatures: generally in the 90s... except 85 to 95 in
the higher terrain and lower Columbia. Hottest time of the day
will be 1 PM to 6 PM each afternoon.

* Low temperatures: temperatures will continue to be slow to cool
off in the evening... especially in urban areas and higher
terrain. Lows will generally be in the upper 50s and 60s...
though some urban areas and hills may not fall below 70 degrees
each night.

* Locations include: Vancouver... Battle Ground... Washougal...
Eugene... Springfield... Corvallis... Albany... ODell... Sandy...
Estacada... Sweet Home... Salem... McMinnville... Hillsboro...

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
339 am PDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Synopsis...little change in the overall weather pattern is expected 
through the Holiday weekend and into early next week. A strong upper 
level ridge will remain over the region to keep inland temperatures well 
above normal with continued dry conditions. Early next week an upper 
level low cutting off near the central California coast may spin 
some moisture up toward the Lane County Cascades for a chance of 
thunderstorms. Some cooling looks possible late in the week as the 
upper level ridge gives way to a weak low pressure center aloft. 


&& 


Short term...today through Monday...temperatures are a few degrees 
cooler inland this morning...thanks in large part to a surge in 
onshore pressure gradients Friday evening. This allowed a bit more 
marine air to penetrate inland than the past several nights. Stratus 
has been spotty along the coast thus far...but 11-3.9um satellite fog 
product is starting to show some stratus developing up the Columbia 
to near Kelso. Low clouds may make it as far inland as Clark County 
toward sunrise...but are not expected to become widespread in the 
Portland metropolitan. 


The stronger onshore gradients are already starting to relax some as 
an upper trough slides through British Columbia and into the Canadian 
rockies. This is lowering surface pressure off Vancouver Island and 
should result in weaker onshore gradients this afternoon and evening. 
The upper trough is doing little to cool off the general air mass 
across Oregon and SW Washington...850 mb temperatures are forecast to remain in 
the +20 to +22 degree c range this afternoon. Slightly lower 500 mb 
heights and 1000-500 mb thicknesses may shave a couple degrees off 
high temperatures today versus yesterday...but it will still be hot inland 
with temperatures well into the 90s. The lower Columbia/Kelso area will 
probably be a bit warmer today due to the weaker onshore 
gradients...back into the 90s after a brief reprieve Friday. 


Tonight should be warmer again with near-record high minimum temperatures 
expected again Sun morning. High pressure building behind the British 
Columbia cold front will likely further weaken onshore 
gradients...shoving thermal low pressure off the Washington/north or coast. This 
will lead to another very hot day Sunday with little to no marine 
influence except for the immediate coast. With 850 mb temperatures remaining 
+20 to +22 degree c and little to no marine inversion...temperatures should 
approach 100 degrees again for some of our inland valley locations. 


With thermal low pressure being shoved offshore and an overall weak 
synoptic flow pattern odds are good that a southerly wind reversal 
will develop along the coast later sun/Sun night...and the 00z NAM 
and 4km WRF-arw show this. With 500 mb heights remaining well into 
the 580s it will be difficult for even a strong southerly surge to be 
deep enough to bring relief from the heat into the Willamette Valley. 
The best chance for this to occur Sun night/Monday is Eugene...but it 
appears unlikely at this point. Overall air mass aloft changes little 
Monday...so barring a deeper southwesterly marine push than 
expected...Monday looks like another hot one with temperatures well into the 
90s inland. Thought about extending the heat advisory into early next 
week...but decided to hold off to get a better feel for the impact 
the southerly surge will or will not have inland. 


Meanwhile a cutoff upper low will linger off the California coast...but 00z 
GFS/ECMWF/Gem all suggest it will be too far south through Monday to 
bring thunder into our forecast area. This may change if the upper 
low wobbles a little further north than currently expected. Weagle 


Long term...Tuesday through Friday...GFS and European model (ecmwf) show the upper 
col remaining over Oregon Tuesday and Wednesday for continued hot weather. This 
also leaves the S Cascades open instability and moisture aloft 
sneaking up from the S...so will keep a slight chance for diurnal 
thunderstorms over the Lane County Cascades both Tuesday and Wednesday. Models 
at this point are suggesting some relief to the extended heat wave 
coming later in the week as the upper low cutoff off the California coast 
moves inland over California potentially bringing a deeper SW push of marine 
air inland. Models indicate the troughiness over the western states 
is then reinforced Friday as another trough moves in off the North Pacific 
for even cooler air. Will trend temperatures downward a little more for Thursday 
and Friday given decent agreement in models with this type of 
solution...but still hold some reservations in buying completely into 
the change as models tend to struggle with cutoff lows especially this far 
into the extended period. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR next 24 hours under stable westerly flow aloft. 
Expect local low MVFR to IFR stratus along the coast and lower 
gaps leading inland this morning. So far the stratus has nearly 
filled in kast to khqm...but is patchy for much the Oregon coast. 
Do not expect ceilings to make it very far inland...maybe as far a 
kkls. Afternoon breezes return this afternoon and early evening. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR will persist next 24 hours. There may be 
some stratus reaching the kpdx area between 14z-17z and expect it 
will be around 1000 feet if it forms. /26 


&& 


Marine...high pressure over the NE Pacific and thermal low pressure inland 
will continue to produce breezy northerly winds over the coastal 
waters today. The stronger winds are further offshore but remain 
below advisory criteria. The thermal low pressure will move westward 
later tonight and Sunday...weakening the pressure gradient over the 
waters. The forecast models are indicating that a southerly wind 
reversal will occur sometime sun. 


Expect periods of steep and choppy seas over the outer waters to 
continue today with combined seas of 6 to 8 feet and a dominant 
period around 8 seconds. Looks like hazardous sea conditions will 
persist over the northern outer zone today primarily west of about 
30 nm. Seas should gradually subside later this weekend as winds 
slacken...reaching around 4 to 5 feet by early next week. Pyle/26
