NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1029 am PDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Updated aviation discussion 


Update...the latest infrared satellite was showing some middle and high level 
clouds across the area with the dry conditions prevailing. A low 
pressure system over the east Pacific will slowly work its way toward the 
two state area later today. The low will advect moisture into the 
region which could produce an isolated thunderstorms and rain over the east slopes of the 
Oregon Cascades later today and this evening. Otherwise afternoon temperatures 
remain above normal with some slight adjustments to this along with 
the sky cover. Otherwise the present short term forecast appears on 
track for now. 


Aviation...18z tafs...VFR conditions expected to prevail over the 
next 24 hours at all taf sites. There will be some high level few 
clouds with surface visible in the haze/smoke should in the 6 to 10 sm range 
at most locations today with winds less than 15 kts. Middle and high 
level clouds will increase overnight becoming broken-overcast with light 
winds.

Previous discussion... /issued 217 am PDT Thursday Aug 27 2015/ 


Short term...today through Saturday...southwest flow aloft between 
an offshore low/trough and ridge over the intermountain west will 
persist through the short term period. Moisture will be limited 
today...but there will be enough instability that a few 
thunderstorms are possible over the Cascades and central Oregon 
during the late afternoon and evening today. The offshore low will 
drift closer to the coast tomorrow. A stronger wave will move 
through eastern Washington and Oregon as a front moves inland ahead 
of the offshore trough. This will result in higher precipitation 
chances along the Cascades and eastern slopes Friday afternoon. With 
cloud cover limiting heating and little or no cape and elevated 
instability do not think there will be any thunderstorms Friday. 
Another wave will move northeast along the front and spread 
precipitation across eastern Oregon and Washington Friday night and 
Saturday morning. The main lift will move north of the County Warning Area Saturday 
afternoon. This will lower the probability of precipitation Saturday afternoon but there may 
be enough breaks in the cloud cover that afternoon heating may 
trigger a few thunderstorms. High temperatures will cool a little 
Friday and then drop 5-10 degrees Saturday as cooler air behind the 
front moves into the area. 


Air quality continues to be a concern as smoke from regional fires 
continues to impact the area. Should see some improving conditions 
across the area Friday as mixing and precipitation increase with the 
approaching front. Coonfield 


Long term...Saturday night through Wednesday. A trough of low 
pressure will remain over the Pacific northwest through the period 
with much cooler temperatures and breezy conditions at times. There 
is chance of showers along the Cascades and northern parts of the 
forecast area early Sunday, with much of the rest of period dry. 
The next system will move through the trough Tuesday and another 
weak piece of energy on Wednesday...but most of the precipitation 
will remain west of the Cascades. 93.
