Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Portland OR 839 PM PDT Wed Apr 1 2020

Updated Aviation and Marine sections

SYNOPSIS. A complex upper low will continue to impact the forecast area through the remainder of the week. A cool and unstable air mass will lead to a threat of thunderstorms Wednesday, with small hail possible in heavier showers. The cool and unsettled pattern continues Thursday as another trough of low pressure moves across. Friday and Saturday sees a smaller chance for showers as the storm track passes by the region to the west and south. Dry weather may return early next week, but it's far from certain.

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Friday: Large upper longwave trough, with a primary low center located over Alberta, will remain the primary influence of our weather for the next several days. A secondary low in a short wave trough is currently moving across the CWA with the primary rotation center roughly over McMinnville. The low center will continue drifting east-southeast through the evening. Broken cloud cover has slowed the heating today, but expect only a couple of degrees of warming will begin to trigger deeper convective showers with hail, and possibly the sporadic thunderstorm. Most of storms should be short duration "one hit wonders" but are still thunderstorms nonetheless. Will maintain a fairly deep rain snow mixed layer with flakes visible for roughly 800 feet below the 2000 foot rough average. Conditions on the immediate coast should stabilize by late this afternoon as low level flow turns more onshore and mid level warming increases. Expect the inland thunderstorm threat to end by mid evening, but showers will continue well into the night. Any lingering showers have the potential to bring light snow accumulations down to around 1000 feet again tonight.

Another shortwave will drop south late tonight and Thursday with showers beginning to develop in the morning, then become more widespread by early afternoon. Instability is much shallower but could still be enough to bring a quick inch or two of snow accumulation to the higher Cascade foothills and above trough Thursday evening. Do not see enough depth to the instability to warrant including a thunderstorm threat in the forecast at this time.

Friday is complicated at best but the main interest will be in just how low snow levels start in the morning. A third shortwave drops south along the BC coast but appears to be timed for an afternoon arrival. However, some model solutions do bring light QPF across the northern tier of the CWA around sunrise. Snow levels will hover around 500 feet and did include a rain snow mix to the valley floors. QPF amounts during the morning are very light and less than a tenth of an inch. Regardless, it might be interesting to see low elevation snow flakes in April, if nothing else. /JBonk

LONG TERM. Friday night through Tuesday . No significant changes. Previous discussion follows: Models in good agreement showing a longwave upper trough remaining over the west coast through Sunday night. In general most of the shortwave energy however appears likely to track south off the coast before moving inland to the south, most likely across California. The presence of the longwave trough suggests at least some chance of showers persists through the weekend, but probably the better chance for showers comes late in the weekend as models open up a southerly flow aloft allowing better moisture to spread north. While models have continued to struggle with the general pattern from day 6 on, there is a trend in the models early next week with the 00Z runs, suggesting ridging potentially building in, lessening the chances for showers again Monday and Tuesday.

AVIATION. VFR at all reporting sites as of 0330Z. Shower activity continues to diminish this evening with the loss of afternoon heating. Expect predominant VFR through about 08Z Thu, followed by a gradual increase in MVFR coverage. Increasing stability, light wind and moist low levels overnight into Thu morning should lead to more MVFR conditions. Model runs show another upper level disturbance sliding into SW Washington and NW Oregon Thu morning. This may result in an increased threat of precipitation and MVFR cigs, especially north of a KONP-KS12 line. Look for an increasing VFR trend after 19Z Thu.

PDX AND APPROACHES . VFR at the terminal and vicinity at 0330Z. VFR to continue through about 12Z Thu, but would expect cigs 040-060 by 08Z. MVFR becomes more likely 12Z-18Z Thu due to increasing stability and light wind. Predominant VFR after 19Z Thu. Weishaar

MARINE. Minimal changes to current forecast. Wind speeds generally 15 kt or less this evening. Shower activity has diminished from the afternoon with the loss of solar heating and as the upper low continues to dive southeast through southeast Oregon. No significant wind concerns through at least Saturday.

Seas are expected to gradually diminish over the next couple of days. However, there is still the potential for square sea conditions tonight through Thu morning. Any square sea conditions that do occur will be short-lived. At 03Z buoy 46029 reported 7 ft at 8 seconds. Models show seas easing to around 5 ft by Thu afternoon. Weishaar

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
