NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...update 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
944 PM PST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Updated aviation discussion 


Short term...evening update...a cold front moved through the area 
late this afternoon. This front caused showers over the area with 
the best showers near the Cascades and over the Blue Mountains and 
the Blue Mountain foothills. This front also kicked winds up at a 
number of locations. Most locations with increased winds have seen 
15 to 25 mph, the one exception has been the ridge just west of 
Pendleton where winds have been running 25 to 35 miles per hour with higher 
gusts. Winds across the area have decreased or are decreasing. The 
winds at the Pendleton Airport (on the previously mentioned ridge) 
will gradually decrease but will remain rather blustery into early 
Sunday morning. Westerly flow has kept a few showers going near the 
Cascade crest through the evening, but showers have largely ended 
elsewhere. The onshore flow will keep showers going through the 
night near the Cascades and may cause renewed showers over the 
interior mountains overnight. The next in a series of disturbances 
will move across the area Sunday. This system will bring varying 
chances of rain and mountain snow to the area. Also winds will 
become breezy at a number of locations again in the afternoon and 
evening due to this system. Updates involved making adjustments to 
winds, precipitation chances, snow levels and amounts, and minor tweaks to 
temperatures through Sunday. 90 


Long term...previous discussion...the 12z European model (ecmwf) and GFS have come 
into much better agreement through the long term period. Rain and 
High Mountain snow will again be possible Monday night and 
Tuesday...especially to the north. Southwesterly winds will also 
increase during this time and daytime temperatures will rise into 
the 50s as high pressure builds from the south. Much drier weather 
and mild temperatures can then be expected Tuesday night through 
Wednesday night with the storm track remaining to the north. The 
ridge will start to break down on Thursday and there will be a 
chance of light rain as well as slightly cooler temperatures. 
Periods of rain and mountain snow will be possible on Friday and 
Saturday as a deep Pacific low approaches the Pacific northwest. 


&& 


Aviation...06z tafs...VFR conditions expected at all taf sites 
through the period. A strong west to northwest flow aloft will 
continue over the area. This...in combination with several weak 
disturbances will act to bring periodic scattered to broken middle level cloud 
decks to most taf sites throughout the taf period. A slightly better 
defined disturbance will try to work its way through the area after 
23/21z...bringing some -shra to and in vicinity of most taf sites. Winds will 
remain gusty at kpdt through the night before a short break from 
23/15-19z. Wind gusts are then forecast to increase again...reaching 
25 to 30 kts after 23/19z for kpdt...kalw..and kpsc taf sites. 77
