SYNOPSIS
Much warmer through the remainder of the week under building high pressure, with moderate heat risk expected from Portland to Salem Thursday through Saturday. More seasonable temperatures return Sunday into early next week.

DISCUSSION
Clear skies prevail across most of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington early this morning as low level northerly flow continues to advect drier air into the region.
Today will mark the beginning of a stretch of well above normal temperatures lasting through the end of the week as a Rex Block begins to take shape in the upper levels and a surface thermal trough continues to strengthen from the California Central Valley into south-central Oregon. This will induce cross barrier flow over the Cascades and subsequent downsloping for the interior lowlands, sending highs well into the 80s this afternoon for areas away from the coast.

Heat still looks to peak Thursday into Friday as 500 mb heights continue to gradually rise and 850 mb temps increase to around 15-16 C. Operational NBM and ensemble guidance continue to depict temperatures ending up right around around 90 degrees both Thursday and Friday afternoon from the Portland metro down to Salem, with highs closer to the mid to upper 80s in the south Willamette Valley and the I-5 corridor in southwest Washington.
One notable change from previous forecast cycles is that NBM probabilistic guidance has started to back off of some of the higher end scenarios, with the chance to reach 95 degrees on Friday down to 25-30 percent in the Portland and Salem areas compared to around 40 percent 24 hours ago, with chances back down to around 5 percent in the Eugene area. This lends increasing confidence in the temperature forecast for the end of the week as highs around 90 support a moderate HeatRisk for the Portland and Eugene areas, with overnight low dropping into the upper 50s helping to mitigate more widespread or cumulative HeatRisk concerns.

Moving into the weekend, it appears temperatures will remain a bit warmer on Saturday as recent model runs have signaled a delay in the expected stronger push of onshore flow as high pressure shifts east of the region. This is reflected by NBM probs hanging onto a 50 percent chance to reach 90 degrees on Saturday for the Portland and Salem areas. More pronounced cooling will still arrive by Sunday as WPC ensemble clusters continue to depict the next trough approaching the Pacific Northwest, dropping temperatures back near seasonal normals in the low to mid 70s. These more seasonable temperatures will persist through the early part of next week as the region remains under the influence of the trough. Models have started to trend drier with the forecast as the core of the upper low remains well to the north over British Columbia, with any low end precipitation chances towards the end of the period now generally confined to the far north Oregon Coast and southwest Washington. /CB

AVIATION
Broad upper level troughing persists over the region with northwest flow aloft. High pressure will maintain VFR under mostly clear skies. Could see patchy IFR clouds along the coast from Seaside northward along the Washington coast into early this morning, as well as in the Cowlitz River Valley. Light offshore flow this morning before onshore flow increases again this afternoon.

PDX AND APPROACHES...VFR under clear skies. Very low chance for some patchy IFR stratus (CIGS 500 to 900 ft) over Clark County between 11Z and 15Z Wed, mainly north and east of Vancouver near the foothills.

MARINE
Not much change as high pressure offshore is expected to persist through the week. Northerly winds around 15-20 kt will continue today. Expect periods of winds gusting up to 25 kt through Friday during the late afternoon and evenings. Including all coastal waters in the Small Craft Advisory through this evening but will likely need to be extended later into the week.
Seas around 4 to 6 feet will generally be wind driven through the week. A weak front is expected to approach the waters this weekend. /DH
