Synopsis Northwest flow aloft will be over the pacific northwest
for the next couple of days. A disturbance within the flow moves
through washington and extreme northwest oregon Thursday night for a
threat of light precipitation. The flow aloft becomes more northerly
by Friday afternoon. Strong high pressure returns to the area over
the weekend and continues into early next week. This will also result
in another round of offshore low-level flow.

Short term Tonight through Saturday... Water vapor imagery early
this afternoon shows a couple of weak short-waves moving across the
pacific northwest in a consolidated 500 mb flow pattern. As of 20z
the kttd-kdls gradient finally went slightly positive. Temperatures
in the central gorge and upper hood river valley have risen into the
lower to mid 40s as of 21z. The 12z NAM indicates surface high
pressure centered over the south washington cascades and the central
gorge this evening. There may be a short period of west wind through
the gorge, but certainly not very strong.

Northwest flow aloft continues Thursday. Models show a developing
short-wave in british columbia Thu afternoon, which eventually
reaches the northern part of the forecast area late Thu night and fri
morning. Surface high pres over the area Thu will lead to valley
inversions and limited mixing ventilation. The NAM does show the
kttd-kdls gradient of around 2 mb by 00z fri. This should be enough
to give some west wind and better overall mixing through the gorge
and into the upper hood river valley. The bulk of the aforementioned
short-wave slides through washington, but 500 mb cyclonic curvature
will allow for a threat of precip over the far north zones Thu night
through Fri morning. The bigger impact of this disturbance will be a
shift to more north flow aloft, setting the stage for a return to
offshore flow. The NAM indicates 3-4 mb offshore gradient through the
gorge Fri evening and then strengthening to 8-9 mb by 12z sat. This
would result in 65-75 mph wind gusts at crown point.

Air quality will become more of an issue late Friday through the
weekend. Forecast mixing heights Fri look to be sufficient to
maintain reasonable air quality. There will be enough north low-level
flow through the willamette valley and clark county to alleviate
pollution build-up. However, by Sat 500 mb high pressure is centered
over the area and transport wind is expected to be rather weak.

Strengthening offshore flow Sat will help some areas, as it will be
more of a synoptic-scale feature. As the offshore flow strengthens
and the cold air layer deepens late Sat it will eventually become
more of a gap-flow pattern, more confined to the gorge. This
transition will lead to increasing air quality concerns later in the
weekend. Weishaar

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday. The strong upper
level ridge over the eastern pacific shifts inland over the pacific
northwest. East winds will likely persist through the columbia river
gorge for the start of next week, but elsewhere winds will remain
rather light which could lead to stagnant conditions under the
developing inversion. This pattern will remain in place through at
least early Tuesday until the next front arrives, but forecast
models diverge more significantly by midweek. In particular, the
deterministic ECMWF is about 24 hours faster with the next frontal
system, bringing it into the region early Tuesday. Trended the
forecast towards the nbm, which better reflects the timing in the
gfs and ensemble mean solutions. This brings the highest (likely
category) pops into the region early Wednesday. Cullen

Aviation A weak pacific frontal system is bringing a few light
showers this afternoon, mainly to areas ksle northward. CIGS are
generally MVFR, with a few locations also showing MVFR vsby due
to some low-level smoke and mist. As of 22z, ifr was still fairly
widespread along the coast. As the front dissipates over the
region, high pressure will build into the pac NW tonight early
thu, possibly allowing for a slight offshore component to the
low-level flow along the coast. This may allow for some clearing
along the coast Thu morning, but confidence is low. Inland areas
should be a different story, with low clouds lingering throughout
tonight and Thu morning. In fact, forecast model guidance
suggests a good chance CIGS vsbys will deteriorate to ifr
overnight and Thu morning as winds remain light under high
pressure.

Pdx and approaches... Weak frontal system will bring MVFR CIGS and
occasional -ra until 00z, then MVFR CIGS are likely to linger
into the overnight hours. There is a decent chance (roughly 60
percent) that CIGS vsbys may lower into the ifr category by 12z.

Ifr MVFR conditions should linger well into the day thu. Weagle

Marine Allowed SCA for winds to expire as s-sw winds decreased
considerably with the passage of a weak front earlier today.

Swell behind the front will likely build to around 9-10 ft by
thu morning, so we have issued a SCA for seas Thu until seas
subside below 10 ft Thu evening. The incoming west swell is
likely to lead to rough bar conditions during the ebbs.

Conditions likely ease through the day Friday. High pressure will
strengthen inland, leading to increasing n-ne winds Fri night,
eventually veering more ne-e over the weekend. Some localized
gusts 25-30 kt will be possible in the offshore flow over the
weekend, mainly below gaps in the coastal terrain. Weagle
