Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 4:45 PM PDT on June 30, 2015


... Warmest June on record... and dry too..

June was a month that many will remember for being warm. But it was
also quite dry... and quite sunny. Lighter onshore flow has lead to
more sunny days. Lack of fronts brought more dry days. And a late
month heat wave brought hot days and warm nights.

Even the rivers are running warmer than normal for late June. On the
29th... the Columbia near was Vancouver was around 70 deg which is 6
to 7 deg above its normal. The Willamette river near Salem was in
the middle 70s. Many other rivers are also warmer due to decreased
snow melt and lower levels.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Portland or 
917 PM PDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure will dominate the weather the next several 
days. Marine stratus will keep the coastal temperatures in the 60s to 
low 70s...but hot weather will continue inland with afternoon 
temperatures reaching into the 90s. An upper low north of the area 
this weekend will flatten the upper ridge and prevent temperatures 
from warming above the 90s. 


&& 


Update...forecast looks good for the near term. Made a couple of 
slight tweaks to sky cover to bring some scattered clouds into Clark 
County and the Portland metropolitan early Wednesday morning. West-east 
gradients are not as strong as last night...so expect a bit less 
cloud cover in the North Valley area than last night. Otherwise 
tonight should be similar to last night with clouds along the coast 
and lows in the upper 50s to around 60 in the valley. Bowen 


Short term...clouds cleared back to the coast by early afternoon... 
although low level onshore flow continued. Models continue to 
indicated upper heights building a little aloft Wednesday and Thursday with 800 mb 
temperatures warming to around 23 degree c...suggesting highs into the middle 90s 
both days. Although weakened...onshore flow will continue which 
coupled with a dry west flow aloft should allow lows to dip well down 
into the 60s at night. With the weakened onshore flow expect marine 
clouds to not push in as much as last night. At this point feel this 
is a borderline situation for a heat advisory for the valleys...so 
will hold off any issuance of one until tonight. 


Models generally agree on a shortwave swinging around the SW part of 
the large upper low over western Canada Thursday night and Friday...brushing 
the Pacific northwest. This will increase the northwest onshore flow a bit again 
for increased morning clouds up the lower Columbia...and cooling 
temperatures down a few degrees. 


Long term...Friday night through Tuesday...upper level ridge of 
high pressure will rebuild westward and maintain over the region 
through the weekend. This will maintain temperatures well above 
seasonal normals...namely in the low to middle 90s inland and near 70 
at the coast. Upper low pressure passes well to the north of the 
area over the weekend...but will flatten the ridge slightly and may 
increase onshore flow. This would bring increased marine stratus 
along the immediate coast and keep temperatures slightly cooler than 
currently indicated. Maintained a slight chance of afternoon/evening 
thunderstorms near the crest of the Cascades for the weekend with a 
fair amount of instability depicted by forecast models...especially 
in the Lane County Cascades. Models begin to diverge early next 
week...but likely remaining generally dry and warmer than normal. 
Cullen 
&& 


Aviation...VFR next 24 hours under mild dry SW flow aloft with mostly 
clear skies. IFR stratus starting to fill back in a bit along the 
immediate coastline...especially north of Cascade Head. Though not 
expected...could still see patchy low clouds along Columbia River 
and Cowlitz valley between 11z and 17z Wednesday. Expect breezy north 
winds with gusts 18-25 kts again starting after 19z Wednesday. 


Kpdx and approaches...VFR through Wednesday. May have very patchy 
stratus along and north of Columbia River between 12z and 16z Wednesday. 
Rockey/27 


&& 


Marine...not much change...as high pressure remains over NE Pacific with 
thermal low pressure over SW Oregon and northwest calif. This will maintain 
gusty north winds across all of the waters...with strongest winds to S 
of Cascade Head. Winds will ease back a bit later in the week as 
gradients relax a tad. 


Generally wind-wave driven seas for the next few days...with steep 
and choppy seas. A building northwest swell looks to arrive over the 
weekend and could reach 10 feet. Rockshaar 


&& 


Pqr watches/warnings/advisories... 
or...none. 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for winds until 6 am PDT Thursday for 
coastal waters from Cape Shoalwater to Florence out 60 nm.
