Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Portland OR 206 PM PDT Sun Apr 14 2024

SYNOPSIS
Weak showers over the Willamette National Forest and the foothills end Sunday afternoon/evening. Another upper level trough passes through central Washington into the Rocky Mountains, clipping us with some insubstantial showers Monday and Tuesday. High pressure will build back in afterwards, keeping things generally dry and warmer until the weekend.
Possibly more rain over next weekend, but confidence is low.

SHORT TERM
THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT...A few weak showers in the central and southern Oregon Cascades have all but ended, and all other areas are just dry with intermittent cloud cover. Today will be the last day of slightly elevated temperatures, with highs pushing up into the mid to 60s for most of the Willamette Valley, closer to 60 south of Corvallis and at the coast. No impactful weather is expected Monday night.

Late Sunday night, we begin to see a few very insubstantial rain showers in the northern part of the region as onshore flow develops and a weak trough passes north of us, with the southern edges of moisture barely clipping us. QPF looks little-to-none, but the northern Oregon Cascades could see maybe some slightly more substantial accumulations due to orographic lift. Snow levels will begin around 3000 ft Monday, dropping to 1500-2000 Tuesday night. Regardless, with such weak moisture, a dusting of snow is all that could be expected above. Daytime temperatures in the mid to upper 50s are expected for most lowland areas during this time. /JLiu

LONG TERM
WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...The ridging pattern continues through the rest of the next workweek, with warmer temperatures and dry conditions. Temperatures on Thursday and Friday look to become warm again, with With a shift to offshore flow beginning Thursday, breezy winds through the Columbia Gorge will be possible; gusts up to 25-30mph will be possible Thursday midday through Saturday morning.

On Saturday, while ensemble guidance is still pointing mostly towards ridging continuing, there does appear to be the possibily of another trough developing off west in the Pacific Ocean. There's a 20% chance this trough approaching close enough to begin developing some light rain showers and cooler temperatures. On Sunday, chance of a trough being in place increases to around 30%. /JLiu

AVIATION
An upper-level low over central California will continue to move eastward pushing mid to high levels clouds across the southern and eastern portions of the airspace. As this low marches further eastward, expect generally decreasing cloud cover. Predominately VFR conditions expected for inland locations starting between 20Z-23Z Sunday. MVFR conditions expected to persist through the TAF period with persistent onshore flow. For inland areas north of KSLE, northerly winds will become more westerly through the day. Areas near KEUG, winds will remain easterly. Coastal sites will have northwesterly winds with gusts up to 20 kt through around 06Z Monday.

PDX AND APPROACHES...Expect VFR conditions through the TAF period.
Northerly winds becoming more westerly through the evening. /42

MARINE
Weak ridging slowly builds through the overnight hours as a cut-off low continues to push into the Great Basin. This will result in the northerly winds to slacken and become more northwesterly/westerly into Monday. Persistent NNW-NW winds will remain with gusts up to 25 knots across all waters Also, a NW swell at 7-9 feet with a period of 8-10 seconds will cause 8 to 10 ft seas through at least Monday morning. As a result, will maintain the Small Craft Advisories for all waters through at least late tonight.

As the aforementioned high pressure builds over the region expect winds and seas to subside from south to north. Have tried to time out the Small Craft Advisories to represent this. Late Monday night/early Tuesday, benign conditions will have settled in resulting in NW winds with gusts around 20 kt and seas of 6-8 ft.
Wednesday, there will be a small pattern change as an upper level system moves southeastward from Canada. This will bring NE winds to all waters, with a 50-60% probability of Small Craft wind gusts for the outer waters. Towards the end of the week, models are showing a ridging pattern developing which in turn could lead towards offshore flow. /42
