NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1055 am PDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Update...current forecast remains on track with some minor 
adjustments. Have expanded the slight chance thunder coverage over 
the Yakima and Kittitas Valley for the afternoon period. 850-500mb 
temperature change indicates greater than 30 degrees celsius. 
Although drier air is expected to intrude...the potential still 
exists for isolated showers...and thus thunder cant be ruled out of 
these showers. The thunderstorms expected today could produce gusty 
winds and small hail. Weber 


Aviation...a storm system will create areas of MVFR ceilings for 
all taf sites into tonight and local IFR conditions are possible in 
and near showers. In addition brief gusty winds to 30 kts is 
possible along with an isolated thunderstorms and rain until 02z. Otherwise the areas of 
MVFR ceilings are expected through the night. 


&& 


Previous disc... /issued 655 am PDT Thursday Apr 24 2014/ 


Short term...today through Saturday afternoon...upper level trough 
digging south offshore will back flow aloft to south today just 
ahead of a cold front. Air mass will become unstable by late this 
morning. New 06z nam12 MOS guidance shows 30-60 percent chance of 
thunderstorms at Hermiston, Pendleton, Walla Walla, Meacham and at 
La Grande from 11am this morning through this afternoon. As such I 
amended the weather grid for this afternoon to indicate that there 
is a chance of thunderstorms along the foothills of the Blue 
Mountains eastward through Wallowa County as well as in Crook, 
Wheeler, and Grant counties. Models also show a vorticity maximum moving 
across forecast are today, which will provide good dynamic lift. In 
addition, a cold front will move through the forecast area this 
afternoon and act as a trigger for thunderstorm development in 
eastern Oregon and southeast Washington. Scattered showers expected 
tonight and Friday with a slight chance of thunderstorms Friday 
afternoon over the Blue Mountains. Friday looks to be dry due to 
high pressure. Polan 


Long term...Saturday night through Thursday...Saturday night will 
see an upper level trough moving off to the east while another 
system in a moist and progressive westerly flow will be moving into 
the area. This will give US a chance of rain with the mountains 
having a rain/snow mix Saturday night through Sunday. The moisture 
will begin to taper off Sunday night with just a slight chance of 
rain in the lower elevations and a chance of rain and snow showers 
in the mountains above 4500 feet. Monday will see ridging building 
over the area and the lower elevations will be dry while a slight 
chance of rain and snow showers will continue in the mountains. 
Models are in agreement in having the ridge remain over the area 
through at least Wednesday night which will give US a period of dry 
weather and a warming trend. The GFS wants to bring an upper low to 
the Canadian border area, possibly on Thursday, though the timing 
changes on each of the last couple of runs while the European model (ecmwf) does not 
have this feature. If this system proves to be real, the GFS is 
usually too fast bring them in this far out in the long term period 
so have kept the forecast dry though probability of precipitation were raised to around 10 
percent in the Washington Cascades. Highs will be in the middle 50s to 
middle 60s with middle 40s to middle 50s in the mountains Sunday and Monday 
then rise to the 70s with 60s in the mountains Tuesday through 
Thursday. Perry
