... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

The Oregon department of environmental quality and the Washington
state department of ecology continue the air quality alert until
further notice.

A smoke air quality alert has been issued. Wildfires burning in the
region combined with forecasted conditions will cause air quality to
reach unhealthy levels.

Pollutants in smoke can cause burning eyes... runny nose... aggravate
heart and lung diseases... and aggravate other serious health
problems. Limit outdoor activities and keep children indoors if it
is smoky. Please follow medical advice if you have a heart or lung
condition.

In addition... a cold front that has passed through the Pacific
northwest this morning will create windy conditions. Although air
quality issues due to smoke may improve briefly... the windy
conditions will also produce areas of blowing dust. This dust will
add to the air quality issues through the weekend.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1048 PM PDT Sat Aug 29 2015 


Updated the aviation discussion 


Update...a few showers were lingering over the far eastern zones 
while a storm system was moving into the pacnw and spreading showers 
to the Washington/or Cascades. As the storm system moves inland the showers 
will spread east into the remainder of the area later tonight and 
increase in coverage and intensity. Therefore the zones were updated 
to spread these showers further east into portions of the basin 
overnight. Otherwise the winds had decreased across the 
region and the wind/dust storm advisories were allowed to expire 
along with the red flag warning. Also minor updates were completed 
to the sky conditions and the present short term forecast appears on 
track for now. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will persist at all taf sites until 08z 
when a storm system enters the Pacific northwest and spreads clouds 
and showers creating areas of MVFR conditions at all taf sites 
beginning with kdls and kykm. Around 10z areas of MVFR conditions 
should begin around taf sites kpsc...kpdt...kalw...krdm...and bdn 
especially in rain showers. After 02z the conditions should slowly 
improve toward VFR conditions from west to east. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 250 PM PDT Sat Aug 29 2015/ 


Short term...tonight through Monday night...breezy to low end windy 
conditions continue across the region. Also areas of blowing dust 
mixed with smoke continue to reduce visibilities at a few locations 
in the basin. Thus will allow the current wind and blowing dust 
advisories to run until 6 PM. Will continue to see a few showers 
over the Cascade east slopes, especially in Washington, and over 
some of our eastern zones into the evening. Still may be enough 
instability for a stray thunderstorm over Wallowa County until 
sunset. Another system will move across the Pacific northwest 
Sunday. This system is looking to be a decent precipitation producer and 
have gone with a wide swath of 60-70 percent probability of precipitation over the area 
Sunday, primarily during the morning. Winds will continue to be 
breezy to locally windy, though precipitation should significantly reduce 
chances of blowing dust. There is some indication of enough 
instability for stray thunderstorms over the Blue Mountains and 
Wallowa County. At this time will leave out the mention of 
thunderstorms and will reevalute the potential Sunday morning. For 
Sunday night through Monday night, will see a broad upper level 
trough over the region. This will keep a west-southwest upper level 
flow over the region. Moisture within this flow will keep a few 
showers going at times over the Washington Cascade east slopes. 
Otherwise conditions look to dry, cool and locally breezy. 90 


Long term...Tuesday through Saturday...models in good agreement in 
keeping an unsettled weather pattern over the Pacific northwest 
through the period. At this time...it appears the best chance of 
rain will be Wednesday/Wednesday night as an upper level trough 
moves through the area. Northwest flow is expected to slowly develop 
behind the system with conditions drying out most locations...except 
the east slopes of the Cascades and the northeast mountains of 
Oregon...Saturday. Temperatures will remain at or below normal 
through the period. Earle
