Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Portland OR 935 AM PDT Tue Aug 11 2020

Updated: Aviation discussion

SYNOPSIS. A broad upper level trough will swing across the Pacific Northwest over the next few days. This will bring a return to cooler temperatures along with an increase in late night and morning clouds to the coast and north part of the interior. Warmer weather returns towards the weekend as an upper level ridge of high pressure builds over the far western United States.

SHORT TERM. Today through Thursday . The transition to cooler weather is underway across SW Washington and NW Oregon. Onshore MSLP gradients have ramped up over the past 12-18 hours, with +4.7 mb KTTD-KDLS as of 2 AM this morning. GOES-16 fog product indicates that low clouds remain somewhat limited along the coast and over the coastal waters, but they are slowly increasing in coverage especially Cannon Beach northward. Despite the robust onshore pressure gradients, low clouds have yet to spread up the Columbia beyond Kelso. Dry air left behind by the last couple warm/dry days is taking some time to saturate, but we should see some clouds bank up against the Cascade foothills north of Sandy toward sunrise as the boundary layer cools to saturation. Any morning cloudiness should clear back to the coast and coastal valleys by midday, leaving mostly sunny skies for inland areas this afternoon. Afternoon temps will be seasonable with inland valley highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s, while the coast generally remains stuck in the 60s due to persistent onshore flow and occasional cloud cover.

Meanwhile, a broad upper trough will be developing over the Pac NW, with latest GFS 500 mb heights dipping into to 570-573 dam range by midday Wednesday. The 00z GFS also shows a decent amount of shortwave energy moving through the Pac NW Wednesday. 00z HREF composite reflectivity plots hint at some light precip moving through the region with this shortwave, but further analysis suggests this would be virga as time-height cross sections keep most of this moisture above 700 mb. Cannot completely rule out a sprinkle or two Wednesday, but we kept the forecast dry as very few models/ ensembles show any QPF and MOS PoPs are generally below 10 percent.

Cloud cover and a cool air mass for the season should hold temps several degrees below seasonal normals inland Wednesday afternoon, with inland valley highs mostly in the 70s. With cooler air moving in aloft, marine inversions will likely deepen to the point where coastal stratus begins to break up, potentially allowing for more sunshine along the coast Thursday. With 850 mb temps in the +8 to +10 deg C range Thursday, lowland highs will likely range from the mid-upper 60s for cooler coastal locales to the mid-upper 70s for most inland valleys. Weagle

LONG TERM. No Changes Previous discussion follows. Thursday night through Monday . Models in good agreement in continuing to show a ridge developing over the region headed into the weekend, before shifting slowly east in the ensuing days. Model trends have been for a stronger ridge over the weekend than earlier runs, with 850 mb temps likely peaking above 22C, which should be good for 90s for the inland valleys over the weekend. Temperatures along the coast appear likely to be warm as well, but not quite so hot as onshore winds appear likely to develop each afternoon with the upper ridge inland. Sunday and Monday models tending to shift the upper flow more to the south-southwest as the pattern shifts east, and while timing is uncertain, there are hints in the models of a shortwave lifting through around Monday. For now will stick with National Blend and limit pops to a slight chance for showers in the north Sunday night and Monday, but the pattern may ultimately wind up being supportive of chances for convection over the Cascades. Monday may wind up being pretty warm as well, depending on how quickly the ridge breaks down.

AVIATION. Current satellite is showing stratus continuing to clear out over the lower Columbia River Gorge. MVFR ceilings in KAST will likely stick around until roughly 19Z before clearing into VFR criteria. Winds are expected to shift slightly onshore around 06Z which may cause a marine push inland. Most guidance is showing a 015 ceiling for a couple hours along the north coast during this time. Areas along the central coast are expected to keep clear skies through the day. However, stagnant overnight winds have allowed enough moisture to build in low lying areas. This has resulted in intermittent periods of low visibility for KONP. Winds are starting to pick up and mix with the dry air aloft. KONP should expect a mix of VFR to MVFR visibility throughout the day.

Inland sites are expected to stay VFR with clear skies through the next 24 hours. Breezy conditions in the late afternoon are expected as a surface low pressure to the south is starting to build.

KPDX and APPROACHES . VFR conditions to prevail for the next 24 hours, breezy conditions in the late afternoon. -BPhillips

MARINE. High pressure will reside over the Oregon waters through Wed with a weaker thermally induced trough on the south Oregon coast. This will result in easing of winds compared to past several days. The low pressure trough strengthens on the south Oregon coast Thu into the weekend for increase in northerly winds over the waters. Will likely need to issue a Small Craft Advisory for the Central Oregon waters as early as Thu and expands the advisory north Fri. Beyond the forecast period looks like a flow reversal develops on Sun. Seas will be around 6 to 9 ft today will gradually subside to around 5 ft by Thu. /mh

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.
