Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Pendleton OR 149 PM PDT Sun Aug 9 2020

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Tuesday night . Today has been a great day for outdoor recreation with afternoon temperatures in the 70s to mid-80s, but Monday will be considerably warmer. An inverted surface thermal trough currently over southwest OR will shift east of the Cascades on Monday, and afternoon temperatures will climb to around 85-95. The thermal trough will be near the OR/ID border by late Monday, allowing cooler marine air to surge through the Columbia River Gorge with breezy winds in the late afternoon and evening. Based on forecast soundings west of the Cascades, the marine air will be shallow and may not push through the Cascade gaps until the evening hours. This includes the Kittitas Valley.

Models have been consistent with a dry cold front on Tuesday. Any thunderstorms that may develop with the front will be far southeast of the forecast area. Both winds aloft and at the surface will increase, and all of the forecast area will observe increasing winds with the front. There is significant dry air behind the front, therefore the RHs will not increase substantially despite the cooler temperatures. Fire Weather Watches will be issued for portions of the forecast area. Details can be found in the Fire Weather Section. Winds will diminish Tuesday night. Wister

LONG TERM. Wednesday through Sunday . A general troughy pattern will be over the region for mid week with near to below seasonal temperatures followed by the upper ridge returning to the Pacific Northwest for next weekend and a period of renewed heat. It looks to be dry through the period with little if any chance for thunderstorms. During the middle of the week it will be a bit breezy especially on Thursday. This could pose some fire weather concerns albeit probably more limited than this Tuesday (refer to fire weather discussion for Tuesday's concerns). High temperatures will be in the 80s Wednesday through Friday (70s mountains) with just slight warming each day . but it will be noticeably warmer over the weekend with highs in the 90s and 80s in the mountains. 78

AVIATION. 00Z TAFS . VFR conditions with clear skies through the period. Winds will be light terrain driven tonight. It will become a bit breezy Monday after 20-21Z with NW winds of 10- 20kt at KBDN . KRDM and KDLS with gusts to 25 kt at KDLS. Winds will be 5 to 10 kt elsewhere Monday afternoon. 78

FIRE WEATHER. Fire Weather Watches will be issued for fire weather zones WA/OR639, OR640, WA/OR641, and WA675 which covers the Yakima Valley, Lower Columbia Basin, eastern Columbia River Gorge, and Central Oregon. The watch will be in effect for Tuesday afternoon and evening for winds and low humidity. Actually, all of the forecast area will have elevated fire weather concerns as winds increase at the surface and aloft. The RHs in the afternoon will be widespread 15-25 pct. It's possible the watch may be extended to cover additional zones, but will keep it for the areas where high confidence of breezy winds and low humidity will occur. Wister

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
