SYNOPSIS
Light showers impact areas to the south through the night. A few afternoon/evening non-severe thunderstorms are developing along the southern Oregon Cascades, with impacts mainly in eastern Lane County. Mild and less showery weather expected for Sunday, then cooler and wetter into the beginning of next week as another system approaches from the northwest.

SHORT TERM
THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT...In the northern half of the CWA (north of Salem), dry conditions with light cloud cover are expected. Temperatures today will continue the warm streak, with the northern Willamette Valley reaching into the low 70s, and the coast into the low 60s. Further south, the edges of a system passing through California clip up, and with sufficient daylight heating, thunderstorms are developing mostly over the southern Oregon Cascades and Cascade foothills, where orographic lift compensates for relatively weak CAPE values of 150-250 J/kg.
Showers continue as well, though QPF values through Sunday morning look fairly low: only a 20-30% chance of QPF during this period exceeding 0.5". Any thunderstorms aren't expected to be severe, and lightning and isolated wind gusts up to 35mph should be the only concerns.

Showers end everywhere but the southern Cascades over Saturday night, and defined onshore flow returns to the area on Sunday.
Temperatures cool slightly as a result, with Willamette Valley temperatures back into the mid to upper 60s and coastal temperatures returning to the mid 50s. The next system begins moving in near the end of Sunday night from the north, with very light QPF values, under 0.10" through Monday. /JLiu

LONG TERM
Monday through Friday...A few light rain showers are expected throughout Monday and Tuesday as another low passes north of us, aimed moreso at the northern Rockies, but QPF looks minimal. Temperatures drop to below climatological averages, into the upper 50s both days.

WPC ensemble clusters still show some variation on the specifics of the pattern beyond Tuesday, but all generally depict a warming and drying trend across the area as the trough departs into the central CONUS and a ridge of high pressure builds either over the eastern Pacific or directly over the Pacific Northwest. This is supported by nearly all individual ensemble members showing dry weather from Wednesday through Friday of next week, with ensemble guidance showing temperatures trending well into the 70s in the Willamette Valley Friday.

AVIATION
Southeasterly flow aloft turns easterly overnight, and northeasterly by Sunday morning, as the upper level low near the central California coast moves inland. Mid to high level clouds from thunderstorms east of the Cascades today continues to spread across the forecast area while light shower activity will likely continue overnight across parts of the Oregon Cascades and southern Willamette Valley through at least 12Z Sunday.
Predominately VFR expected through the period, except at the coast where marine stratus is likely to return, bringing low MVFR to IFR conditions tonight into Sun morning. There's also increasing chances (30-50%) of lower flight conditions across the southern Willamette Valley, including KEUG, after 08Z Sunday.

PDX AND APPROACHES...Expect VFR conditions with high clouds through the period. Southerly winds should eventually turn back northwest 4-6 kt tonight. /DH

MARINE
The region continues to be under the influence of a cut-off low situated off the California coastline today keeping northerly winds in place across the waters. Expect wind gusts in the 20-30 knot range to persist through the rest of the weekend as the aforementioned low slowly progresses eastward. A NW swell at 7-10 feet with a period of 9-10 seconds persists. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for winds and seas through Sunday evening for all zones. Surface high pressure builds over the Pacific Ocean Monday into midweek with widespread winds decreasing below Small Craft conditions (gusts greater than 21 kts) and seas decreasing to 6-8 kts with period increasing to 10-12 seconds by Monday morning, persisting into midweek. Guidance suggests Thursday into Friday a thermal trough could build over northern California and southern Oregon with high pressure remaining over the Eastern Pacific, which could bring elevated northeasterly winds to the waters. -HEC
