244 PM PST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Short term...tonight through Sunday...the latest Pacific system 
will move through the Pacific northwest tonight through Saturday. 
This system will push a marine polar front through the region during 
the early morning hours Saturday, then an Arctic front will move 
through during the day Saturday. Breezy to windy conditions will 
continue through this evening with strongest winds over the Lower 
Basin and Yakima Valley in Washington. Onshore flow tonight will 
produce varying amounts of rain and snow. Snow levels will begin to 
fall along the Washington Cascade east slopes late this evening. 
Elsewhere, snow levels will fall overnight through middle morning 
Saturday with the passage of the marine polar front. Snow levels 
will fall further, reaching the lowest elevations by Saturday 
afternoon due to the Arctic front. Overall snowfall will be limited 
below 5000 feet due to the timing of the system and the snow level 
drop. Some light upslope induced snow will be possible along the 
north and northeast facing mountain slopes and foothills into 
Saturday evening as the Arctic air mass continues to filter into the 
area. Expect fair, dry and cold conditions late Saturday night 
through Sunday. 90 


Long term...Sunday night through Wednesday night...warm front will 
be lifting north late Sunday night and across northern Oregon on 
Monday. There is still a lot of disagreement in the models on how 
far north into Washington the warm front will move by Monday night. 
At this time it appears it will remain south of a line from Yakima 
to Pullman and then get pushed back south on Tuesday as another 
piece of energy drops south across Washington. Model soundings 
indicate a chance of freezing rain...sleet and snow in the Columbia 
River gorge, part of north central Oregon from Madras north and the 
foothills of the Blue Mountains and lower Columbia Basin of Oregon 
Monday afternoon and evening. Then by Tuesday the cold air is washed 
out, leaving a chance of rain or snow across northern Oregon on 
Tuesday. The flow becomes more westerly on Wednesday with mountain 
showers. Ml 


Thursday through Friday...no major weather concerns are anticipated 
in days 6-7 of the forecast. A westerly flow will keep a chance of 
snow showers over the mountains and a slight chance of rain and snow 
showers elsewhere. Even though the snow levels will be near the 
basin floor at night...the threat of precipitation is minimal for 
the lower Columbia Basin and surrounding valleys. Models are hinting 
at a weak ridge on Friday...and the upcoming shift may decide to 
remove probability of precipitation for most of the area if this model trend continues. 
Wister 


&& 


Aviation...00z tafs...winds 20-30 kts will be seen at most 
locations through 06z tonight with the exception of kdls which will 
be 15-25 kts. Cold front will be working south over Washington 
tonight with main rain band pushed south over Oregon by early 
Sunday. MVFR visibility at kdls will continue through 06z as heavier 
rain bands move through with light rain showers possible through the 
night at other locations. Ml
