NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
249 am PDT Monday may 2 2016 


Short term...today through Tuesday night...the upper ridge over the 
Pacific northwest and southwest Canada will gradually shift east 
today and tonight. This will result in the development of a south 
flow from central Oregon north to central Washington this afternoon. 
Moisture will increase in these areas this afternoon and tonight. 
Instability due to daytime heating will become sufficient enough to 
cause a few afternoon and evening showers and/or thunderstorms over 
portions of central Oregon, especially the Cascade east slopes. Weak 
waves within the southerly flow will keep a few showers going 
overnight into Tuesday morning over portions of central and north 
central Oregon, and south central Washington. Northeast Oregon and 
southeast Washington will remain fair and dry today through Tuesday 
morning due to a dry air mass and continued subsidence associated 
with the upper ridge. High temperatures today will be 3 to 5 degrees warmer 
than on Sunday. The south flow will extend east across the remainder 
of northeast Oregon and southeast Washington Tuesday afternoon and 
Tuesday night. Afternoon heating and energy associated with an 
approaching upper trough off the coast will cause chances of showers 
and thunderstorms across a good portion of the area Tuesday 
afternoon and evening. Varying chances of showers will continue late 
Tuesday night into early Wednesday due to lingering energy and 
moisture. 90 


Long term...Wednesday through Sunday...showers and thunderstorms 
will continue over the forecast area Wednesday and Thursday...as 
moisture continues to be spun up from a low pressure system off the 
California coast. This low will slowly move towards southern Nevada 
by the end of the work week. It is then expected to stall out over 
the weekend. This could make for a tricky pop forecast Friday 
Onward...as the position of the low could determine whether we get 
several days of showers and possible thunderstorms...versus several 
days of dry weather. For now have kept mainly a slight chance over 
the central and northeast Oregon areas. Temperatures will continue 
to be in the 70s to lower 80s for the lower elevations...and in the 
60s to lower 70s mountains. Continue to monitor the forecast as we 
approach the near term for the weekend...and confidence will 
increase on our pop forecast. Weber

Aviation...previous discussion...06z tafs...VFR conditions with 
mostly clear skies will prevail for the next 24 hours at all taf 
sites. There will be some cumulus build ups Monday afternoon mainly 
impacting krdm and kbdn with a slight chance of thunderstorms near 
the Cascade mountains. Winds will generally be less than 10 kts.
