Synopsis Expect near average temperatures and a mixture of clouds
and sunshine through the weekend before hotter weather returns next
week.

Short term This afternoon through Saturday... Satellite imagery
places a front across the local area from about mt. St. Helens south
southwest to the lane county coast range. Stratiform rain continues
to fall east of the front with showers developing to the west of it.

Most places have seen measurable rain today and those that haven't
will still have a chance of getting a bit with showers into this
evening. However, models agree that the highest moisture will slip
further south by 00z later this afternoon, so expect rainfall rates
to drop off quickly. Decreased pops quite a bit behind the front
this afternoon and evening, particularly in the willamette valley,
although there will still be a few showers. Continued with a mention
of showers in the cascades all the way through tonight as all of the
operational models show a non-zero chance.

The weather becomes meteorologically unimpressive Thursday as upper
ridging begins to build, returning the area to the familiar dry
august pattern. Temperatures remain below normal Thursday with the
marine layer filling the valleys Thursday morning and taking a bit to
burn off. Friday warms a little more as the ridge continues to build,
but the ridge is almost immediately then flattened by an upper trough
to the north. Models suggest the trough will swing a weakening front
into the northern part of the local area Friday night and into
Saturday morning, which could trigger some light rain along the
northern oregon and southern washington coasts, possibly even as far
inland as about longview. Kept some slight chance pops in the
forecast through Saturday afternoon in these areas to cover that
potential. Otherwise, the flattening of the ridge brings seasonable
temperatures for the first part of the weekend. Bowen

Long term Saturday night through Wednesday... The GFS and ecmwf
12z guidance are in agreement throughout the extended which gives
higher confidence for the long-term forecast. A high pressure will
build over central california Saturday night and will persist
through Wednesday. This ridge will reduce the chance of
precipitation over the forecast area. Moderate onshore flow will
keep temperatures in the low to mid 80s through Monday. However, a
thermal trough will begin to build over southeast oregon Tuesday and
will bring reduced wind speeds and higher temperatures in the low to
mid 90s Tuesday and Wednesday in the willamette valley. -bphillips

Aviation The frontal system continues to slowly move across
the area through the evening. Coastal areas currently are
experiencing ifr MVFR conditions and these conditions should
continue through Thursday morning in the post frontal air mass.

The exception to this will be at konp, in which ifr conditions
along with intermittent lifr conditions through tomorrow
morning. Inland locations should experienceVFR conditions with
intermittent MVFR conditions through the overnight hours.

Kpdx and approaches...VFR conditions should dominate along with
intermittent periods of MVFR CIGS though Thursday morning.

Marine expect winds to lessen and slowly become northwesterly
in the post frontal air mass. Small craft advisory level winds
have lessened within pzz270 and pzz275. Winds should also lessen
below advisory criteria for pzz250 and pzz255 by late this
afternoon.

Seas will remain steep through the remainder of the evening in
the inner waters but will be subsiding below 10 feet tonight.

Seas for most waters will remain around 7 to 8 feet through
Thursday. However, there is a a fresh northwest swell around 10
feet to the waters on Thursday for pzz270. A small craft advisory
has been issued starting very early Thursday morning and is
expected to last through Thursday afternoon.

A more typical summer pattern sets up Thursday into next week as
high pressure builds offshore with a thermal trough along the
northern california and south oregon coasts for predominantly
north winds.

Pqr watches warnings advisories
Or... None.

Wa... None.

Pz... Small craft advisory from 3 am to 11 am pdt Thursday for waters
