Another strong push through the strait will occur Monday afternoon and evening with additional gales possible. Surface high pressure gradually rebuilds across the waters the middle of next week for a transition to quieter conditions.

Updated for Aviation

AVIATION
00Z TAFS...VFR conditions are expected over the TAF sites through the TAF period. Isolated SHRA/TSRA are expected through the evening hours, but should remain east of the TAF sites. The 2 sites that have a low (<30%) chance of seeing any SHRA/TSRA are ALW and PDT. After this evening, any chances drop to zero.

Breezy winds will overspread the region though Monday, with wind gusts mainly 25 to 30 kts at all sites and up to 35 kts at DLS.

PREV DISCUSSION
/issued 137 PM PDT Sun Apr 14 2024/

SHORT TERM
Today through Tuesday
A low pressure system, centered over central California this afternoon, continues to influence our weather via warm air advection from the Great Basin and subtle moisture flow along the mountains bordering the eastern and southern end of the forecast area. Seeing some convective activity develop right along where Grant and Crook County border Harney, as well as some cumulus development stretching from the northern Blues down toward central Oregon. We've stayed dry thus far, as moisture has been lacking, but as the low continues its gradual eastward movement, more favorable moisture advection will take place, allowing for more convective activity to pop up along primarily the eastern mountains. Latest CAMs support this, however expectation is that storms will be on the weaker end, with the wetter, stronger cells lying to our southeast. Precip will then abate by midnight as the forecast area finds itself between systems.

This transitory period between systems will beget windy conditions for the forecast area, primarily through the Cascade Gaps and the Oregon Basin. Wind Advisories remain in effect, with onset time differing based on how the synoptic pattern evolves. Winds this evening will increase, more so than they already have, across the Cascade Gaps as the California low pushes toward the intermountain west, leaving us under an area of diffluence aloft as a trough over western Canada glances us to the north. Gusty winds downstream of the Cascade Gaps are more likely during the day Monday as the Canadian trough swings a cold front through the CWA
The central Washington Cascades may see some light snow above 3500 ft, but main concern will be winds gusting up to 50 mph across the Kittitas Valley, Simcoe Highlands, and Columbia River Gorge as the front moves in. Gusts will also approach 45 mph through the Oregon Basin. Blowing dust may occur during the day Monday across the Oregon Basin as a result of these strong winds.

We'll remain breezy heading into Tuesday as a jet max lies overhead on the southern flank of the Canadian trough, but gusts will decrease down towards the 30-35 mph range across the advised areas.
Light mountain precip will linger, but amounts are expected to be minimal. Main concern toward the tail end of the period will be monitoring the potential for an overnight freeze as the region's growing season begins to burgeon. Most likely suspects would be the Kittitas and Yakima Valleys, as well as the foothills of the Blues, as the area finds itself under amplified NW flow and cold air advection on the back end of the Canadian trough. Elsewhere, high temps will cool into the 60s and 50s across our population centers through the start of the work week under this colder pattern.
Evans/74

LONG TERM
Wednesday through Sunday
A deep upper level low pressure system over central Canada will maintain a cyclonic flow over the PacNW Wednesday and Thursday providing the continued threat of some showers mainly over SE WA and NE OR. On Friday the low pressure system moves further east allowing an upper level ridge of high pressure to begin moving into the PacNW from the eastern Pacific for the weekend. Ensemble models show a deep upper level trough in the Gulf of Alaska sending a shortwave trough towards the PacNW over the weekend pushing the ridge axis off to the east thus indicating a weak trough influencing the forecast area by late Saturday into Sunday. Deterministic models are showing more of a range from an outright weak shortwave passage to a closed low pressure passing over the region. Overall forecast confidence good through Friday but decreases going through the weekend as models are not in good agreement on how to handle this weak trough feature.

AVIATION...18Z TAFS (Previous Discussion)...VFR conditions expected over the next 24 hours with some showers and possible thunderstorms stretching from central Oregon through NE Oregon through this evening but not expected to impact TAF sites other than some possible VCSH around RDM and BDN. RDM and BDN will see some SCT- BKN070-120 with other sites seeing SCT-BKN120. Breezy winds have already begun spreading into the region, with widespread gusts 20-30 knots by this afternoon continuing into Monday when winds reach their peak 15-30kts gusts 30- 40kts.
