NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
929 am PST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Updated the aviation discussion 


Short term...today through Wednesday...high pressure will be 
dominating the weather pattern through midweek providing dry 
conditions. This will also provide above normal temperatures and 
possible near record highs especially above the strengthening 
inversion. Below the inversion we will see developing fog and 
low clouds and cooler temperatures. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will persist for the next 24 hours at all 
taf sites. However the visibility could fall to near 5sm and local MVFR 
conditions could be approached between 10z-14z in patchy fog. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 240 am PST Monday Feb 8 2016/ 


Short term...today through Wednesday...models are in good agreement 
for the short term. A ridge of high pressure will dominate the 
interior Pacific northwest today through Wednesday. Patchy fog may 
result along the Columbia River and possibly parts of the Yakima and 
Kittitas Valley. Right now any fog that develops should burn off in 
the afternoon...as we should be to a point where the sun angle is 
getting high enough to burn off any fog that develops. But we will 
still monitor certain areas to make sure persistent fog does not 
continue. 


A surface high will set up along the southern or/Idaho 
border. This will result in slightly tight pressure gradients along 
the Grande Ronde Valley. Breezy winds out of the southwest about 15 
to 20 miles per hour...with slightly higher gusts are currently in the 
forecast. 


Temperatures across the lower elevations are expected to be in the 
upper 40s to middle 50s. However...850mb temperatures are much warmer 
than Sunday...and if the morning inversion breaks 
quicker...temperatures could climb into the middle 50s to lower 60s. 
Either way today should be mostly sunny across all areas with 
exception of any areas that start out a bit foggy. This will 
continue through middle week with temperatures expected to be within a 
few degrees +/- of the previous day. 


Models do hint at a weak disturbance to move over the area Tuesday 
night into Wednesday. However...it does not look like it will 
provide much other than possible increased cloud cover. Weber 


Long term...today through Tuesday...the strong upper ridge that is 
bringing very mild temperatures and dry conditions through middle 
week...especially in the higher elevations...is expected to weaken 
Thursday night and allow moisture to ride up and over the top of the 
ridge. Models (gfs and nam) are in good agreement with this scenario 
and they are indicating some light precipitation along the Cascade 
east slopes and adjacent valleys. Since snow levels will be quite 
high precipitation is expected to be all rain at pass levels and 
lower in the entire forecast area. However only light precipitation 
is expected only along the Cascade east slopes and adjacent valleys 
(especially in southern washington) Wednesday night through Thursday 
night. After that the models are still in good agreement that 
moisture and precipitation will spread eastward to cover most of the 
forecast area on Friday as an upper trough off the coast begins to 
move inland...with a deep southerly flow ahead of it. This upper 
trough will move across the County Warning Area on Saturday. Therefore increased 
probability of precipitation over most of the County Warning Area on Friday and then over the entire County Warning Area on 
Saturday. Models are still in good agreement for the upper trough 
passage on Saturday. After that the overall flow becomes progressive 
with more frequent weather systems to bring occasional periods of 
precipitation. Snow levels will remain quite high through Friday 
night but then they begin to drop to about 3500 feet northwest County Warning Area 
and 6000 feet in the southeast County Warning Area on Saturday. This will allow some 
snow over the higher mountains on Saturday. Snow levels will rise 
again due to the upper ridge redeveloping on Sunday through the 
remainder of the long term forecast period. Therefore precipitation 
type will again be mainly rain except for the highest peaks (above 
pass levels) through next Tuesday. 88
