Synopsis Wet and unsettled weather will continue this week. A
warm front will lift north today with more rain and some windy
conditions near the coast. A weak cold front then drops south across
the forecast area tonight and Wednesday for more rain. Another cold
front sweeps south on thanksgiving with cascade snow levels lowering
to near pass levels Friday. Lingering showers Friday before the next
system arrives on the weekend.

Short term Tonight through Thursday... Radar shows rain has
quickly spread back north overnight, overrunning a warm front that
extended east to west across SW wa early this morning. Models
indicate the warm front is expected to lift north through the
forecast area this morning, and up into western wa this afternoon.

Low level moist isentropic lift is at its strongest this morning
along the 290k isentrope, which matches well with the initial area
of rain moving north through NW oregon through early this morning.

Satellite showed deep tropical moisture spreading north off the ca
and or coast this morning, which GFS shows spreading inland today
with preciptable water values peaking along the coast around 1.5
inches this afternoon, and over 1.25 inches inland. Ssw 850 mb winds
also peak south of the front this afternoon, from 50 to 60 kt,
resulting in strong moisture flux. Models continue to show a weak
trailing cold front moving up to the coast this afternoon and
evening, with an area of modest moist isentropic lift preceding the
front, seen along the 300k isentrope. This will result in a
continuation of relatively high pops in the baroclinic zone through
tonight and into wed. QPF potential will be highest this afternoon
and evening coincident with the highest moisture flux values, esp
over orographically favored terrain in the coast range, willapa
hills, and south wa cascades. Sought of the warm front today
southerly gradients along the coast with a weak offshore component
to the winds is not generally conducive to getting high winds on
land despite the strong wind field over water. Will keep peak gusts
at beaches and headlands today limited to around 45 mph. With the
warm front lifting north of the area today and the upper ridge
aloft, will see temps warmer than normal lasting through wed, with
snow levels well above cascade passes.

The baroclinic zone weakens Wed afternoon and night as it slowly
shifts further inland. Pops associated with this feature diminish,
but another cold front approaches the coast late Wed night as a
shortwave approaches the region from the west. This drives a cold
front east across the forecast area Thu for another round of rain,
eventually turning to showers behind the cold front. The air mass
moving in Thu will also bring lowering snow levels.

Long term Thursday night through Monday... No changes. Previous
discussion follows. We will be transitioning to showers by Thursday
night, which will be diminishing Friday. The models keep speeding up
the next system, which may arrive by Saturday, and then may linger
into Sunday. The next system is expected Monday. After a brief drop
in snow levels Friday mainly in the north part of the forecast area,
snow levels rise gain significantly Saturday before dropping a bit
again Sunday. May get a brief rise in snow levels again Sunday night
into early Monday at the leading edge of the next system. Overall,
the unsettled weather pattern continues. Bishop tolleson &&

Aviation Warm front will lift north across the region today.

Widespread MVFR and pockets of ifr with rain ahead of the front,
then improving toVFR once the front passes. At this time, warm
front will be in a konp to keug line by 15z, and kast to kpdx
around 22z, and then into southwest washington early this
evening. Higher terrain and passes of the cascades will be
frequently obscured today. Should remainVFR for most areas
tonight, though will see increasing MVFR along the coast as next
front approaches.

Kpdx and approaches... Warm front will approach from the south
today. MVFR with rain this am, with periods of ifr CIGS until
18z. But, warm front will pass across ops areas between 21z and
23z, with conditions improving toVFR afterwards. Generally, east
to southeast winds will continue through tonight. Rockey.

Marine Warm front will over the south oregon coastal waters
early this am will lift north across the coastal waters today,
and will be well north of the region tonight. Easterly winds will
become southerly gale this am as the front passes. Generally,
strongest winds will be over the outer waters, or 10 miles and
farther offshore. But, will see gusts 30 to 35 kt on the inner
waters at times as well. Current gale warnings on all waters
today into this evening looks good.

Winds will ease this evening, with generally 25 to 30 kt gusts on
the waters later tonight into wed. But another front will
approach the region later Wed into thu, with another round of
southerly gales at that time.

Seas generally building today, mostly due to gusty winds. So,
will see choppy seas today into this evening, with seas 8 to 10
ft early this am building to 14 to 18 ft by early afternoon.

Again, higher seas will be farther offshore with the stronger
winds. Though seas subside just a tad later tonight, still stay
in the 13 to 17 ft range through Wed night.

Pqr watches warnings advisories
Or... None.

Wa... None.

Pz... Gale warning on all coastal waters through this evening.

Small craft advisory for rough columbia river bar conditions
from 4 pm to 8 pm today.
