NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
445 PM PDT Monday Sep 15 2014 


Updated for aviation discussion 


Short term...tonight through Thursday...high pressure will continue 
over the region overnight and Tuesday with a long wave trough over 
the eastern Pacific. A small and weak disturbance moving out of the 
trough and up the west side of the ridge will produce some clouds 
across the forecast area overnight and a very slight chance of some 
high based precipitation and or thunderstorms over the eastern 
mountains through early Tuesday. Once this system exits we will be 
under mostly sunny skies until the next system begins increasing 
clouds Tuesday night. This will occur as the long wave trough 
approaches the coast and sends another shortwave across the inland 
northwest late Wednesday followed by the trough passage on Thursday. 
Have increased precipitation chances for the Wednesday night period 
and then decreased them on Thursday as increased westerly flow will 
allow the Cascade downslope to cut off precipitation except over the 
mountains. Temperatures will continue to run above normal through 
Wednesday then cool on Thursday as the westerly flow brings in some 
cooler air. 


Long term...Thursday night through Monday...the period starts off 
with some left over clouds and a slight chance for showers as an 
upper level disturbance gradually moves out of the area. Eventually 
this system becomes a cutoff low near Southern California by 
Saturday morning. Behind this we can expect rising heights as the 
upper level ridge builds over the area...this will lead to dry and 
warm weather for much of the upcoming weekend with temperatures at 
least 5-10 degrees above average. Previously mentioned upper level 
cutoff low meanders or possibly even retrogrades off the California 
coast into Monday with the latest European model (ecmwf) model run coming into better 
agreement with the GFS on this solution. Next system likely won't 
approach the region until after the extended period...perhaps the 
middle of next week. 


&& 


Aviation...00z tafs...VFR conditions forecast to persist across all 
taf sites through the period. A shortwave disturbance located off 
the central Oregon coast will continue to move northward into the 
area this evening bringing increasing high and middle level clouds to 
the taf sites. Overall this system will remain weak and moisture 
starved. Probability for showers or thunderstorms will be slight 
chance or less...but cannot be completely ruled out between 03z to 
12z Tuesday mainly for southern and eastern taf sites as indicated 
by the latest high resolution NAM and hrrr models. Winds will remain 
light and should follow their typical diurnal cycle for the most 
part through the period...however if any showers or tsms were to 
develop a brief and localized wind gust could occur. High clouds 
will persist across the taf sites through tomorrow afternoon as the 
region remains under a moist west to southwesterly upper level flow.
