Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 9:43 am PDT on July 28, 2014


... Very warm weather this week in southwest Washington and
northwest Oregon...

A very warm week is on tap across the interior of southwest
Washington and northwest Oregon. The warmest temperatures will be
in the inland valleys such as the Willamette Valley... the
Columbia River gorge... the Interstate 5 corridor in southwest
Washington... and the Upper Hood River Valley... where values from
90 to 95 are possible through Tuesday... with upper 80s to near 90
later in the week. The Coast Range and the Cascade foothill
temperatures will close to those values as well.

Maintaining proper hydration will be very important for any
outdoor activities planned this week. Avoid extra exertion during
the afternoon and early evening hours. Do not leave children or
pets unattended in cars... as this can be fatal. Many fatalities
that have occurred over the years during hot spell episodes have
taken place on area rivers... including several that occurred
during our last hot spell earlier in July. Take extra care while
engaged in recreation on area rivers this week.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
933 am PDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge will be centered inland over the 
Pacific northwest through the coming week with an upper low centered 
off the b.C. Coast. The resulting light southwest flow aloft will 
bring warm and dry weather to southwest Washington and northwest 
Oregon...except for an increasing chance for thunderstorms in the 
Cascades and especially in Oregon in the afternoons and evenings. The 
marine layer will be shallow but slowly become more solid through the 
week...with a little seepage through the coastal gaps as the week 
progresses. 
&& 


Short term...an upper low off the b.C. Coast and an upper level 
ridge anchored inland over the western U.S. Will be the weather 
pattern that will affect the Pacific northwest and southwest 
Washington and northwest Oregon through this week. This will produce 
light mostly southwest flow aloft with high 500 mb heights. While a 
marine layer was forming along the coast...the associated subsidence 
will keep it rather shallow through the week...though we may start to 
see some seepage inland through coastal gaps as the week progresses. 


The air mass today will continue to be very warm with 500 mb heights 
in the upper 580s to near 590 dm and 850 temperatures close to 20 degree c. 
With less higher clouds today...there should be more afternoon highs 
inland cracking the 90 degree mark. The coast has more fog and low 
clouds this morning that should back off the coast a little in the 
afternoon...but temperatures may struggle to reach 70. 


The air mass aloft is quite dry today. We did not see any lightning 
Sunday afternoon and evening...and we may not today either. Have 
shrunk our slight chance to just far eastern Lane County. The 12z 
Salem sounding and model soundings are quite dry and maintain precipitable water 
values around 0.7 inch...so the threat is small at best. 


The controlling weather pattern is the same on Tuesday...though 
there are some subtle differences. It will continue to be warm 
inland with temperatures close to 90. Expect the marine layer to continue 
near the coast with night and morning fog and low clouds locally 
inland along the Columbia River and possibly close to Kelso early 
Tuesday. Also...the models are showing a bit more moisture on 
Tuesday as precipitable water values rise to near 1 inch. Thus 
expect a bit better chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon and 
evening in the Oregon Cascades...probably staying south of Mount 
Jefferson. While these thunderstorms may still tend to be a bit 
dry...a few may eventually produce some rainfall. 


The pattern Wednesday looks very similar to Tuesday...with a chance 
of thunderstorms again over the Cascades in the afternoon and 
evening. Precipitable waters  remain around 1 inch. The light southwest flow will 
probably keep thunderstorms may south of the Columbia River again. 
The models imply the marine layer may become more solid along the 
coast Wednesday...and may try to extend inland to near Portland but 
anything will be very brief and not have much impact. Temperatures inland 
will continue to be very warm Wednesday...in the upper 80s to around 
90. Tolleson 


Long term...no changes. Previous discussion follows... 
Wednesday night through Sunday...models are in agreement that the 
upper-level ridge positioned over western U.S. Will remain fairly 
stationary through the week this week.North-northwesterly onshore 
flow due to the surface ridge axis being positioned to our south will 
allow low-level stratus develop overnight along the coast and the 
lower Columbia River. Decreased cloud cover south of this axis later 
this week...but only a little due to model uncertainty on the 
location of this axis. Chance of thunderstorms along the Cascade 
crest due to shortwave impulses riding up along the western edge of 
the upper-level ridge. These storms should mainly occur during 
afternoon-evening hours...but some may linger overnight depending on 
timing. -McCoy 
&& 


Aviation...high pressure over region...with dry southwesterly flow aloft. Like 
past mornings...will see patchy fog in and around coastal bays after 
16z Tuesday. In addition...coastal IFR stratus will remain along the 
coast this morning...before breaking up and pushing offshore by 18z. 
Otherwise...VFR with late afternoon/evening cirrus. /27 


Kpdx and approaches...no adverse weather impacts...with VFR. Rockey. 
&& 


Marine...not much change in overall weather pattern this week. High 
pressure remains over the NE Pacific...with thermal low pressure over northwest calif 
and far SW Oregon. Pressure gradients will flex from time to time...but 
tightest gradient remains over S Oregon coastal waters today and 
tonight. This will maintain gusts 20 to 25 knots through this 
evening...but winds ease a tad on Tuesday and Wednesday. 


Seas running 4 to 7 feet...with highest seas S of Tillamook where 
duration of northwest winds continue to build up the seas. Rockey. 
&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until midnight PDT tonight for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater Washington to Florence or out 60 nm.
