NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
911 am PDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Short term...update...an upper ridge remains over the western U.S. 
This morning. As such the upper level flow over the Pacific 
northwest remains southwest to west-southwest. One wave within this 
flow will swing out of the area today. This will cause some drying 
and stabilizing across our northern zones, especially over south- 
central Washington. Will decrease shower and thunderstorm coverage 
over northeast Oregon due to the decreasing instability behind this 
exiting wave. Meanwhile another wave will move north out of 
California this afternoon and evening. This wave will bring another 
round of moisture and lift into central and east-central Oregon. 
Thus will continue to indicate scattered showers and thunderstorms 
in these areas for the afternoon and evening. Precipitable water 
amounts across the southern half of Oregon are running around 1 inch 
so expect measurable precipitation under storm cores in central and east- 
central Oregon. Will see another very warm day and will keep current 
heat advisories in place. 90 


Long term...previous discussion...eastern Oregon and Washington 
will be on the western side of an upper level ridge through at least 
Monday morning. Several waves will move through the area and ride 
over the ridge. Subsidence from the ridge will bring south to 
southwest flow and hot temperatures to the region. This southerly 
flow will also bring monsoon moisture into the area at times. 
Thunderstorms activity will be enhanced by heating during the 
afternoon and evening...but weak waves may trigger nighttime 
convection as well. 


Southwest flow will be over the area Friday. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) bring 
a wave through the area Friday afternoon. Expect convection to 
linger into the evening before decreasing overnight. Saturday 
another wave will form offshore and move into eastern Oregon and 
Washington Saturday night and Sunday. This will reinforce the 
southerly flow and keep a chance of thunderstorms over the County Warning Area. 
Monday the GFS keeps a southerly flow and brings another weak wave 
to enhance thunderstorm activity. The European model (ecmwf) develops a westerly flow 
with the best convective potential in southern Idaho and Montana. 
The GFS ensembles show both scenarios. Kept a persistence forecast 
with slight chance of thunderstorms central to northeast Oregon 
mountains...but have low confidence in details. Tuesday both 0z 
models indicate dry westerly flow developing but enough instability 
and moisture may linger over the northeast Oregon mountains to 
trigger thunderstorms again Tuesday afternoon/evening. 


&& 


Aviation...previous discussion...12z tafs...VFR conditions are 
expected for the next 24 hours. Scattered middle and high level clouds from 
blowoff of previous thunderstorms possible at all taf sites. This 
afternoon expect a repeat of thunderstorms in central Oregon after 
21z and have thunderstorms in the vicinity in the tafs once again at kbdn and krdm. Surface 
winds will generally remain below 15 kts for the next 24 hours 
though kdls may have some gusts up to 30 kts after 16z when the 
winds pick up again. Krdm and kbdn may have winds of 10-20 kts with 
higher gusts during nearby thunderstorm activity. 


&& 


Fire weather...warm and dry conditions will persist as a ridge of high 
pressure remains over the region. Overnight humidity recovery will 
be poor to moderate. Each day this week...thunderstorm chances will 
increase and spread north and east as several weak disturbances 
interact with monsoon flow. Most thunderstorms should stay south of 
the Washington border until Friday and Saturday. Storms that develop 
will be a mixture of wet and dry with precipitation ranging from a 
few hundredths of an inch to around a quarter of an inch. Red flag 
warnings have been issued for abundant lightning across central 
Oregon today through Saturday. Over the northeast mountains...only 
isolated thunderstorms are expected today. Scattered thunderstorms 
will then be possible across a larger area on Thursday...and red 
flag warnings for the northeast mountains begin Thursday afternoon.
