NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
245 PM PDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Short term...tonight through Thursday...the northwest upper level 
flow over the region will shift to a more westerly direction 
tonight. This is due to the approach of a system in the Gulf of 
Alaska. This flow will remain dry through tonight, thus will see 
fair and dry conditions. Low end breezy winds through the Cascade 
gaps this evening will gradually decrease through the night, 
especially in The Gorge. The Gulf of Alaska system will swing 
through British Columbia and northern Washington into western 
Montana Tuesday through Wednesday morning. This system will push a 
cold front through the region Tuesday afternoon and evening. This 
front will be largely dry with only some light rain near the Cascade 
crest (mainly in washington) Tuesday and Tuesday night. Also, a few 
showers may occur over the northern blues and the higher terrain in 
Wallowa County overnight Tuesday night. Winds will increase across 
the area behind the front, especially across the Columbia Basin and 
through the Cascade gaps. May see some patchy blowing dust in the 
basin, but am uncertain to how much and how low visibilities may go. 
May just see a gradual build up of dust in the air with only limited 
visibility reductions. Thus will hold off on any highlights for now. 
The system will continue to move east Wednesday afternoon through 
Thursday. This will result in a dry northwest to north flow 
developing over the region for a return to lighter winds and dry 
conditions. 90 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday...the area will remain 
dry through much of period as an upper low moves down over northern 
California and a ridge of higher pressure pushes into Washington. 
The next system will be dropping south through western Canada on 
Sunday and Monday. The 12z GFS is stronger and dives the system 
south over Washington...while the European model (ecmwf) is about 12 hours slower and 
keeps the best energy and moisture to the north, similar to the 
previous GFS runs. This system should bring some showers to the 
Washington Cascades but we shouldnt see any further south. The main 
effects will be another push of cooler air for late Sunday and 
Monday and some breezy conditions. Ml 


&& 


Aviation...00z tafs...VFR conditions will prevail over the next 24 
hours under mostly clear skies. Winds will decrease to less than 10 
kts overnight and then increase after 18z on Tuesday with most 
locations seeing 15 to 20 kts and gusts to 25kt...while kdls will 
have 15 to 25 kts and gusts to 30kt. Ml
