NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
430 am PDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...today through Sunday...a westerly flow aloft will 
continue to bring in cooler marine air into the forecast area 
today...especially western areas of the County Warning Area. A mostly dry cold front 
will sweep across the forecast area this afternoon and tonight. 
Surface pressure gradients will increase ahead of this cold front 
causing southwest to west winds to increase...especially in the 
eastern Columbia River gorge and in the Kittitas Valley along the 
Cascade east slopes. This combined with moderately low relative 
humidities will lead to heightened fire weather concerns. However 
relative humidities will be high enough to prevent red flag 
conditions from being met. Therefore will recommend to fire weather 
shift to only include a headline in the fire weather forecast today. 
Otherwise it will become cooler today than on Thursday and then even 
cooler on Saturday and Sunday. The atmosphere will be stable for the 
most part. The only chance for precipitation today will be along the 
Cascade east slopes where some moisture will spill over the Cascade 
crest onto the east slopes. Down slope winds on the Lee of the 
Cascades will cause quick drying of this air so am not expecting 
precipitation to make it too far eastward and mainly just over the 
higher elevations of the east slopes. On the other side of the County Warning Area 
the northeast Oregon/southeast Washington mountains will create 
upslope wind conditions and there may be a few showers there as well 
beginning this evening. It will be too stable for thunderstorms. It 
will be more unstable south and east of the County Warning Area where thunderstorms 
will be possible south and east of the County Warning Area border. A broad upper 
trough will sag southward into the region tonight and Saturday 
resulting in further cooling and a continued slight chance of 
showers over the Cascade east slopes. The winds will no longer favor 
upslope conditions over the northeast mountains beginning Saturday 
as they become more southwest so the eastern and northeast mountains 
will likely not see anymore showers starting Saturday. This general 
pattern will persist on Sunday into the extended forecast period. It 
will become breezy to windy again on Saturday and Sunday in the 
eastern Columbia River gorge and Kittitas Valley. Temperatures will 
cool to the 70s in the lower elevations by Saturday and continue on 
Sunday. 88 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...northwest flow will be 
over eastern Washington and Oregon Sunday night through Monday 
night. The main lift will remain in Canada...but weak waves in the 
flow may trigger a few showers in the Washington Cascades Sunday 
night and Monday. Tuesday a trough will drop south out of the Gulf 
of Alaska changing the upper level flow to west Tuesday then 
southwest Wednesday and Thursday. Models show some differences in 
timing/strength of the trough but the significant moisture and lift 
remains north of the County Warning Area. Did not change current forecast of slight 
chance probability of precipitation in the mountains but would not be surprised to see 
changes in precipitation forecast. Coonfield
