NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
419 am PDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...today through Friday...an upper level ridge will be 
over the region today...followed by a relatively strong trough on 
Thursday and Thursday night. The trough will move east of the region 
on Friday. For today into this evening expect generally cloudy skies 
with a little light rain possible mostly north...but quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
will be light. Temperatures will be mostly in the 60s lower 
elevations with 40s and 50s mountains. The main rain event will 
begin on Thursday especially during the afternoon as the the upper 
level trough approaches. A general rainfall is expected areawide 
late Thursday and Thursday night ending in the east Friday morning. 
Heaviest amounts of preciptation will be along the Cascade crest and 
over the eastern mountains with amounts of .25 to .50 inches 
possible. Snow levels will be lowering late Thursday night into 
Friday morning...but this will occur as the precipitation is 
shutting off. Thus not expecting much mountain snow. It will be 
windy Friday across much of the lower elevations. 78 


Long term...Friday night through through Tuesday...a Flat Ridge 
will pass over Washington and Oregon Friday night and Saturday... 
followed by a southwest flow aloft Sunday. Subsidence from the ridge 
will keep temperatures warm Saturday and Sunday. Weak impulses 
moving through the southwest flow may trigger a few showers in the 
Cascades Saturday night and Sunday. Another front will move through 
eastern Washington and Oregon Sunday night and Monday with showers 
over most of the area. Monday night and Tuesday the GFS has a cutoff 
low developing over northern California and European model (ecmwf) has an elongated 
trough near the coast. Both of these solutions will produce showers 
over eastern Washington and Oregon. Coonfield
