NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1040 am PDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...large upper low moving along the British Columbia coast toward the 
Pacific northwest. This system is turning the large scale upper 
level flow to the southwest. This southwest flow will draw the upper 
low currently off the California coast across Oregon later today and 
tonight. A strong jet will accompany the low and will provide plenty 
of lift. Expect showers and thunderstorms to develop this afternoon 
and continue through the evening. Could see some stronger storms due 
to shear and jet dynamics. Storms will likely develop over southern 
and central Oregon first then advect northward through the evening. 
Otherwise satellite shows skies will be mostly cloudy today. Highs 
mostly upper 70s and 80s. 
94 


&& 




Aviation...18z tafs. Although VFR conditions will prevail for the 
next 24 hours...there is a possibility that ceilings and/or visibilities will 
lower to MVFR or less with thunderstorms. Middle and high level clouds 
with varying bases will remain at all taf sites through Wednesday 
morning. The air mass will destabilize over time...and scattered 
thunderstorms will develop across eastern Oregon and southeast 
Washington. Because convective cells will be a hit and miss...it's 
difficult to say for certain if thunderstorms will develop within 5 
miles of a particular Airport. Will keep tempo groups of 
thunderstorms for all taf sites through this evening with the 
exception of kykm and kpsc where confidence is lower for 
thunderstorm potential. Winds will be less than 10 knots through 
the period...but there is always a potential for gusty and erratic 
winds with nearby thunderstorms. Wister

Previous disc... /issued 437 am PDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014/ 


Short term...today through Thursday...an upper low pressure system 
continues to drop down from the British Columbia coast causing the flow over the 
Pacific northwest to becoming more southwest. This is resulting in 
moisture and instability being pumped northward into the region. 
Radar is showing isolated to scattered showers over the County Warning Area at this 
time with a few stray lightning strikes over the northeast mountains 
earlier last evening. The atmosphere is stabilizing at this time so 
the amount of lightning is decreasing with mainly just showers 
around. This afternoon the bulk shear...negative lifted indice's and cape 
values all increase for an increasing chance of thunderstorms. The 
ingredients are coming together to provide a favorable environment 
for possible strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening. 
Precipitable water values are also increasing which means 
thunderstorms could have heavy rain with them...though thunderstorms 
are expected to produce abundant lightning this afternoon and 
evening. As such a red flag warning is in effect today beginning at 
11 am for the entire fire weather district. The best chance for 
thunderstorms will be over the Oregon portion of the County Warning Area and fire 
weather district...except it also includes the northwest Blue 
Mountains and foothills in Washington. The atmosphere will remain 
unstable on Wednesday with still a decent amount of cape...negative 
lifted indice's and shear. Thunderstorms are therefore forecast for the entire 
County Warning Area/fire weather district on Wednesday as well. As such the red flag 
warning will continue through Wednesday evening. Due to the cloud 
cover and lower 850 mb temperatures maximum temperatures will be 
relatively cool compared to the last two weeks with highs in the 80s 
lower elevations...with mainly 70s in the mountains. The upper low 
will move out of the area on Thursday with drying and stabilization 
taking place. As a result will see thunderstorm activity rapidly 
decrease late Wednesday night and on Thursday across the County Warning Area. 88 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday night...dry westerly flow 
will shift to the southwest over the weekend as high pressure builds 
over the area. Hot temperatures will return to the area Saturday 
through Monday. There is a little hint of some monsoonal moisture 
moving up through central and northeast Oregon on Monday. 
Temperatures are expected to be in the middle 90s to lower 
100s...except middle 80s to lower 90s mountains Monday. Due to strong 
surfaced based heating and the middle level moisture...have added a 
slight chance of thunderstorms to central and northeast Oregon on 
Monday. Weber
