NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
742 PM PDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Update...numerous showers with a few embedded thunderstorms 
continue west of the Cascades and south of the County Warning Area in lake and 
Klamath counties. More showers are also seen on radar over Kittitas 
County and some over Benton and Franklin counties...but it's 
doubtful that any rain is reaching the ground with such hot and dry 
air at the surface in Benton and Franklin counties. The upper ridge 
that has brought the very hot and dry conditions during the past 4 
days will move to the east tonight and early Monday and allow an 
upper trough to begin moving into the region. There will be 
increasing subtropical moisture and instability to the east and 
southeast of this trough and as a result there may be some 
thunderstorms over southern and eastern portions of the County Warning Area (mainly 
from the Blue Mountains southward and eastward) on Monday. Elsewhere 
to the north and west cooler and more stable air will move into 
those areas. The best chance of thunderstorms will be in central 
Oregon where the instability and moisture will be the greatest. 
Temperatures on Monday will be about 8-12 degrees cooler across the 
County Warning Area...with the greatest cooling over northern and western areas. The 
cooling trend will continue through middle week with drier and more 
stable air moving into the region. The heat advisory will end at 9 
PM this evening along with red flag warnings for portions of the 
fire weather district. Please refer to the fire weather discussion 
for details about the red flag warnings. 88 


&& 


Aviation...06z tafs...VFR conditions will prevail during the next 
24 hours at all taf sites. There may be brief MVFR at kbdn and krdm 
on Monday due to showers and thunderstorms. Winds will increase from 
the west mainly in the lower Columbia Basin and surrounding valleys 
and the ridge tops as cooler marine air pushes into the region on 
Monday. 88 


&& 


Fire weather...will let the red flag warnings for fire zones 
639...641 and 643 for hot and dry conditions with high Haines index 
expire as scheduled at 9 PM this evening. Will continue the Fire 
Weather Watch for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening for gusty 
winds and low relative humidities for fire zone wa675 (the Kittitas 
valley). As cooler marine air pushes eastward into the district 
later tonight and on Monday the high Haines threat will decrease and 
critical fire conditions will no longer exist. However gusty winds 
and low relative humidities in zone wa675 may create critical fire 
conditions from Monday afternoon through Tuesday. 88

Previous discussion... /issued 425 PM PDT sun Aug 2 2015/ 


Short term...tonight through Wednesday. A strong high pressure 
system continues to produce very hot conditions as afternoon temperatures again 
soar above the century mark across portions of the basin and the 
surrounding area. However the high pressure was slipping to the east 
and is allowing a return flow of moisture into our western zones 
where the additional cloud cover was keeping temperatures from rising as 
fast today. Showers/thunderstorms and rain will work there way into the Washington/or Cascades 
overnight and then spread eastward affecting the entire area Monday 
afternoon as a disturbance works its way across the region. Afternoon 
high temperatures will be noticeable lower by as much as five to ten 
degrees because of the clouds and showers into Monday evening. Drier 
air is forecast to work its way into our western zones Monday night 
and the bulk of the precipitation will shift into the blue/Wallowa Mountains 
Monday night and Tuesday. Moisture will also linger over central 
Oregon and a few showers/thunderstorms and rain are possible here as well Tuesday 
afternoon. As the disturbance moves well east of the region our area 
should return to mostly dry conditions and near seasonable temperatures by 
midweek. 


Long term...Wednesday night through Sunday night...the extended 
period starts off mainly dry as a northwest flow and weak transient 
upper ridge develop over the area Wednesday night through the first 
half of Friday. Westerly winds could remain a little breezy 
Wednesday evening as the pressure gradient is slow to relax. Friday 
night through Saturday afternoon an upper level trough passes by 
just to the south of the forecast area. This upper level feature 
will combine with increasing moisture and instability to lead to a 
slight chance of showers and thunderstorms...especially over the 
mountains of central and northeast Oregon. Heading into Sunday and 
Sunday night most guidance is now in agreement that a broad upper 
trough with an associated upper level low will begin to approach the 
region from off the Washington coast. The exact track of this 
feature will have large implications on just how much moisture may 
move into our County Warning Area. The current guidance is indicating plenty of middle 
level moisture...instability along with a cyclonic flow and 
increased vertical motion over the County Warning Area. This would allow showers and 
thunderstorms to develop over much of the region. Would like to see 
more run to run consistency in this solution before raising probability of precipitation too 
much higher...considering it is day 7 decided to go with a slight 
chance to low end chance of showers and thunderstorms for 
now...still plenty of time to watch this system. With the added 
cloud cover and moisture around temperatures will continue to be 
held in check much closer to average levels. This equates to highs 
in the middle 80s to lower 90s for the lower elevations through the 
entire extended period with 70s to lower 80s in the mountains. 77
