Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Portland OR 1028 AM PST Fri Jan 28 2022

SYNOPSIS. Locally breezy conditions will persist through this afternoon near the Gorge and in parts of the Portland Metro area. Otherwise, quiet weather will continue through Saturday ahead of a system bringing rain and mountain snow to the area Sunday into Monday. Snow levels will drop to around 1500 feet by Monday night.

SHORT TERM. THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT . Breezy conditions persist through the western Columbia River Gorge this morning, but the pressure gradient is beginning to decrease. This means that winds too will start to east . but the Gorge will likely still feel those increased winds through the day. Otherwise, most areas will see another sunny day with temperatures climbing to around 50 degrees. The Air Stagnation Advisory has been extended through Saturday afternoon. Based on forecast soundings, the inversion is likely going to redevelop at the lower levels of the atmosphere. However, this looks to be the last night of this being the case. The high pressure ridge has not begun it's flattening stage as of yet, but will likely initiate overnight into Saturday.

Details have not changed much with the Sunday system as a front moves across the area ahead of an upper level trough dropping into the Pacific NW from the Gulf of Alaska, bringing light to moderate rain to the coastal areas and the interior lowlands and mountain snow to the Cascades. Snow levels will initially be around 3500 ft or higher on Sunday, but will quickly drop to around 1500 ft Sunday night into Monday as colder air filters into the region with the arrival of the upper trough. Do not expect accumulations to reach advisory criteria at this time, but the passes could certainly pick up 6 or more inches of snow between Sunday night and Monday night. -Muessle/CB

LONG TERM. MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY . Showery weather will persist into Tuesday in cool northwest flow behind the departing trough, with snow levels dropping as low as 1000 feet across the area early next week. Dwindling QPF amounts look like they should preclude any significant mountain accumulations, while the chances for any lowland snow remain on the low side, particularly south of the Portland Metro. The picture becomes a little more muddled getting into the middle of the week as at least some of the medium range guidance keeps low precipitation chances over the area into Wednesday and Thursday. Meanwhile, the bulk of ensemble clusters continue to depict upper level ridging becoming re-established over the NE Pacific in this timeframe, favoring a trend back towards drier conditions during the latter half of next week. -CB

AVIATION. 18Z TAFs: No significant changes for the next several hours as VFR conditions prevail across much of the area today and tonight. The offshore flow will gradually weaken later today and tonight as high pressure weakens east of the Cascades. Winds through the western Gorge will gradually ease. Stratus field over the coastal waters, presently about 30NM offshore should make a move to the coast tonight. HREF has a 30-40 percent chance of LIFR at 00Z, and 60-70 percent chance by 12Z Saturday. Inland overnight, feel a strong possibility for freezing fog, maybe stratus, to develop at KEUG tonight, mainly after 12z. Also am hinting some low clouds may form at KHIO tonight. In both cases, what does form will likely remain through the morning.

KPDX AND APPROACHES . VFR condition expected to prevail for the next 24 hours. Strong gusty winds at the west end of the Gorge will slowly subside later today and tonight. Gusts 35-40 kt east of KTTD can be expected today then 25-30 kt by this evening. -JBonk/MH

MARINE. Weakening offshore flow should gradually result in easterly winds gradually turning southerly later today. Expect rather benign conditions through Saturday considering it is January, but will see low stratus or fog spread east across the water later today and tonight.

A front appears likely to drop southeastward across the waters Sunday. This system will bring an increase winds and seas, but conditions appear likely to only top out in low end Small Craft Advisory level wind thresholds of around 20 to 25 kt Sunday. Seas may approach 10 ft late Sunday into Monday. An additional storm system will be possible towards the middle of next week, but many models suggest high pressure will return. -MH/Neuman

PQR WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. OR . Air Stagnation Advisory until noon PST Saturday for ORZ003>008- 010-012-014-016. WA . Air Stagnation Advisory until noon PST Saturday for WAZ020-022- 039-040-046. PZ . None.
