NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
1030 am PDT Friday Mar 27 2015 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...clear skies this morning with high pressure over the 
region. An upper level trough and cold front are approaching the 
coast and will bring increasing clouds this afternoon and evening. 
Morning soundings indicate the low level airmass is warmer today as 
compared to yesterday. Expect another day with temperatures well above 
average. Highs in the 70s. Models continue to show instability 
developing over central and northeast Oregon later in the day with a 
slight chance of thunderstorms. Otherwise a chance of showers for 
all locations this evening and overnight as the front moves through. 
Cold advection and good pressure rises will result in breezy to 
windy conditions overnight and Saturday. 94 


&& 


Aviation...18z tafs. Clear skies and light winds will continue for 
the next 2-3 hours...but cumulus clouds will build and winds will 
increase for the remainder of the afternoon. Moisture and 
instability ahead of a cold front will create towering cumulus 
and/or cumulonimbus clouds by late afternoon. There may be isolated 
thunderstorms from Prineville east-southeast over eastern Oregon. 
The timing of the cold front will be near the Cascade Range around 
10 PM this evening then over the Columbia Basin around midnight and 
near the Idaho border by 4am Saturday. West winds just ahead and 
behind the front will increase to 15-25 knots gusting to 35 knots. 
Rain showers may also lower ceilings/visibilities to MVFR tonight...mainly near 
kpdt and kalw. Wister

Previous disc... /issued 438 am PDT Friday Mar 27 2015/ 


Short term...today through Sunday...another record setting warm day 
is expected today across the forecast area under a high pressure 
ridge aloft. 850 mb temperatures will rise to about 14 to 16 degree c 
which translates to temperatures in the middle to upper 70s in the 
lower elevations. A weather disturbance and cold front will be 
approaching from the west. Ahead of this front there will be 
increasing moisture and instability. This will lead to isolated 
thunderstorms this afternoon which will continue tonight. Model 
soundings indicate there will remain elevated instability overnight 
so will keep a mention of a slight chance of thunderstorms through 
the night over the eastern mountains into early early Saturday. Am 
not expecting any severe thunderstorms. The next concern will be 
increasing wind behind the cold front late Friday night and 
Saturday. The strongest winds will be from about 06z tonight until 
about 21z Saturday. At this time winds are not expected to reach 
advisory speeds but it will need to be watched. An Overall Flat 
ridge pattern will develop Saturday night into Sunday with a 
progressive flow. Most of the moisture with upcoming storms will be 
pushed north of the County Warning Area though there will be middle and high clouds on 
Sunday over the County Warning Area. Temperatures will cool down on Saturday and 
Sunday but will still be slightly above normal. 88 


Long term...Sunday night through Thursday...fairly dry southwest 
flow will continue ahead of the next weather system. This system 
will move through the area on Monday night. Have added a slight 
chance of thunder to the northeast mountains Monday night as models 
are hinting at some instability. But overall a chance of rain 
showers can be expected over the mountains...and a slight chance of 
showers over the lower elevations. As the frontal system pushes 
east on Tuesday...westerly flow will set in for the remainder of the 
extended. Snow levels will gradually lower as cooler air from the 
north intrudes. Right now have the snow levels in the afternoon 
around 4500 feet and around 3500 feet overnight each day from 
Tuesday night Onward. Moisture is expected to be on and off with 
this westerly flow...therefore with the lowered snow levels...a 
chance of convective snow showers over the mountains will be 
possible at times. Weber
