Synopsis A weak upper disturbance passed east of the pacific
northwest last night and early this morning increased the onshore
flow and morning low clouds some this morning. The onshore flow tend
to continue tonight and Sunday morning, more focused along the
columbia river and the north part of our forecast area. One last
upper disturbance will pass through Sunday afternoon and night and
maintain the onshore flow before an upper ridge builds in on Monday
and continues Tuesday for warmer temperatures. Low clouds will mainly
be along the south washington and north oregon coast Monday morning
and locally inland along the columbia river. The upper ridge will
reduce the onshore flow for Tuesday. A significant upper trough will
approach Wednesday with increased onshore flow and a bit of cooling,
then some chance of showers Wednesday night and Thursday. Another
upper ridge starts to build by the weekend for drying and warming.

Short term Today through Monday... An upper level disturbance from
overnight has moved east this morning. This increased the onshore
flow resulted in a decent area of morning low clouds that was focused
more along the west slopes of the cascades and foothills and backed
into the willamette valley and the i-5 corridor though southwest
washington. There was less over the coastal mountains and the coast.

These are clearing and will be mostly gone by afternoon except
perhaps a few lingering in southwest washington into the early
afternoon. After that, plenty of sunshine will be the rule with temps
near or just below seasonal normals today.

Some onshore flow will continue into Sunday and the models
concentrate any morning low clouds along the south washington and
north oregon coasts and across the southwest washington interior and
along the columbia river, with a focus near the higher terrain. After
that there should be plenty of sunshine again. Temps will be around
seasonal normals Sunday.

One last weak upper disturbance passes through the pacific northwest
Sunday afternoon and evening before an upper ridge off the coast
builds into the pacific northwest Monday and Tuesday. There is some
increase in the onshore flow again Sunday night in the wake of this
disturbance. The marine clouds will be shallow with the greatest
coverage along the south washington and north oregon coasts. Some
will extend inland along the columbia river through kelso and
possibly get close to kttd and even kpdx with brief ceilings possible
between 12z-15z. Believe these clouds in the portland metro area will
tend to break up before the eclipse progresses much. The rest of the
day will be sunny, and with the upper ridge building in we should see
inland temps warm considerably over those Sunday, possibly getting
close to 90 degrees. Tolleson

Long term Monday night through Friday... Tuesday will be another
warm day with decreased onshore flow due to the upper ridge Monday
continuing over the area Tuesday. Temps will be well above normal
especially inland, possibly close to 90. A decent late summer system
will approach Wednesday, possibly increasing the onshore flow some
with a bit of cooling, before the system moves through Wednesday
night and Thursday with plenty of clouds and some chance of showers.

Some lingering onshore flow will give way to more sunshine on Friday
as conditions begin to improve in the wake of the Thursday system.


Aviation Vfr conditions for the coast and most of the willamette
valley this morning with areas of MVFR CIGS over the coast range and
the cascades. Keug may see an hour or two of MVFR CIGS briefly this
morning. These clouds should clear this afternoon. North winds will
gust this afternoon with the strongest gusts along the central oregon
coast (~25kt) impacting konp, and florence. Gusty n-nw winds are
expected for most inland areas this afternoon with gusts in the
willamette alley around 20 kt. MVFR stratus will return to the coast
this evening and push inland along the lower columbia river late
tonight possibly impacting kkls and kspb. The stratus will likely
expand into the north willamette valley and the south washington
cascade foothills early Sunday morning.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR with clear skies today. N-nw winds will
increase in the afternoon with gusts up to 20 kt possible. MVFR
stratus are expected early Sunday morning around 6 am (13z). ~tj

Marine A persistent weather pattern will result in little change
in the marine weather the next several days. High pressure holds over
the NE pacific while a thermal trough is along the south oregon
coast. This supports north winds across the south washington and
north oregon waters. The thermal trough strengthens each afternoon
such that the north winds will increase and become gusty each
afternoon. The winds south of cascade head will have frequent gusts
to around 25 kt which supports the current small craft advisory for
winds. This advisory will likely be extended in time with the
afternoon forecast package.

The seas will be locally generated from these winds and generally
remain 4 to 6 ft with periods at 9 to 10 seconds. The seas will be
choppier in the southern waters for the afternoons with dominant
periods possibly around 8 seconds. ~tj

Pqr watches warnings advisories
Or... None.

Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory for winds until 5 am pdt Sunday for
coastal waters from cascade head or to florence or out 60

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
