NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
200 am PDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Short term...today through Sunday...an upper high pressure system 
will gradually transition to a northwest flow today and Saturday as 
the upper ridge weakens. This will result in increasing west to 
northwest winds and tighter surface pressure gradients along the 
Cascade east slopes this afternoon and Saturday afternoon. Cooler 
marine air will filter through the gaps and passes of the Cascades. 
In eastern areas it will remain very hot today with a thermal trough 
remaining over that area. On Saturday westerly winds will increase 
also in the lower Columbia Basin and adjacent valleys resulting in 
cooler temperatures...but still very warm as 850 mb temperatures only lower 
slightly. Expect highs again today to range from 100-107 over the 
lowest elevations with 80s and 90s in the mountains. Then 
temperatures will cool slightly on Saturday...but it will still be 
very warm to hot with highs around 100 in the lowest elevations. The 
heat advisory for the lower Columbia Basin and adjacent valleys and 
Blue Mountain foothills will continue through 8 PM this evening and 
then end. Temperatures will be below the criteria for a heat 
advisory on Saturday and Sunday. The increasing winds along the 
Cascade east slopes will result in critical fire weather conditions 
for western areas of the fire weather district this afternoon 
through Saturday early evening with red flag warnings in effect. 
Further cooling will take place on Sunday as the westerly pressure 
gradient continues to pull cooler marine air into the County Warning Area. 88 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...very warm/hot 
temperatures will persist through the extended period...as an upper 
level ridge over the Great Basin will continue. 


There will be a slight chance for thunderstorms across central 
Oregon each day...as a low pressure system off the California coast 
brings middle level moisture and instability to the area. Dry west to 
northwest flow will keep dry conditions with mostly clear skies in 
other areas. Models have the low slowly progressing further inland 
each day...but still indicate that a northwest flow will cut off 
much of the instability north of Deschutes...Crook...and Grant 
counties. 


Expect high temperatures to be lower 90s to around 100 for the lower 
elevations with upper 70s to upper 80s mountains. Overnight lows 
will be warm and continue in the 60s for the lower elevations and 
the middle 50s to lower 60s mountains. Coonfield
