NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
237 am PDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Short term...today through Thursday...an upper level low is 
drifting east off the California coast. A clipper system is moving 
across Vancouver Island this morning and will pass through 
northeastern Washington...Idaho...and Montana this afternoon through 
Wednesday morning. The northern part of the County Warning Area may see a few high 
clouds from the clipper system. The southern border of the County Warning Area will 
have some clouds rotating around the low off the California coast. 
Models have most unstable cape and negative lifted indices over southern Oregon 
and from central to northeast Oregon. This afternoon the highest 
cape in the County Warning Area is along the Cascades. This will combine with weak 
upslope flow and daytime heating to trigger scattered thunderstorms 
in Deschutes...Jefferson...and Crook counties. Isolated 
thunderstorms are possible over the rest of the area with unstable 
cape. By late afternoon the cape over Wallowa County will increase 
in response to the clipper system to the north. However...the 
moisture in this area is limited so only isolated thunderstorms are 
expected. These storms will dissipate with the loss of daytime 
heating. 


Wednesday afternoon the highest moisture and cape rotating 
around the low near central California will remain is southern 
Oregon though weak instability will develop again from central to 
northeast Oregon and may trigger a few thunderstorms. As the low 
moves inland Wednesday night a few showers may persist over night. 
Thursday the moisture and instability will spread farther north. The 
chance of thunderstorms will increase across central and east- 
central Oregon, while lower chances will spread along the Cascades 
and the rest of Oregon. Coonfield 


Long term...Thursday night through Tuesday...upper low off the California 
coast will lift northeastward across the region on Friday and Saturday while 
another low becomes established off the Pacific northwest coast. This 
second low will open up into a shortwave trough and gradually move 
inland Monday and Tuesday of next week. This scenario will result in 
unsettled weather through the forecast period with a chance for 
showers and thunderstorms especially central and northeast 
mountains. Best chances for rain will be on Friday and Saturday 
afternoon and evening with local probability of precipitation over the eastern mountains. 
Thunderstorm coverage could be scattered during this time period. 
Deep layer flow will be weak so there could be some heavier rain 
with the slow moving storms. Nevertheless given the dry fuels fire 
weather will becoming an increasing concern late in the week. 
Temperatures will be cooler with increased cloud cover helping to 
suppress afternoon high temperatures. Highs will be mainly 85-95 in 
the lower elevations and 70-80 in the mountains. It will be breezy 
in the Columbia River gorge and Kittitas Valley during the 
afternoons and evenings but it does not look like winds will be 
strong enough for wind advisories. 78 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will prevail through the forecast period. 
Will carry a vcsh group at kdls and krdm this afternoon. Later 
forecasts may need to include thunderstorms in the vicinity. Thunderstorms may tend to be a 
little farther south today compared to Monday...mostly from kbdn 
southward. Otherwise just a few middle and high clouds will be around 
today. Winds will be mostly west-northwest at 5-15 knots this afternoon and early 
evening otherwise terrain driven through the forecast period. 78
