NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pendleton or 
300 am PDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Short term...today through Tuesday night...a deep upper trough off 
the West Coast will gradually shift into the region today. Energy is 
still dropping south on the west side of the trough, thus the 
eastward progression will be slow. A cold front associated with 
this trough will slowly move across western Oregon and Washington 
this morning. The front will then move across the Cascades this 
afternoon, then out of the interior northwest this evening. Precipitation 
associated with this system will also gradually work east across the 
interior northwest today and this evening. Best precipitation chances will 
be over central and north central Oregon, and south central 
Washington today. The best chances will then shift into our eastern 
zones this evening. A secondary wave will keep decent precipitation chances 
going over the Blue Mountains east through Wallowa County and south 
into Grant County overnight. Snow levels will lower this afternoon 
and tonight, but will range from near 6500 feet over the Cascades to 
near 8000 feet over Wallowa County overnight. Snow levels by 
daybreak Tuesday will run between 6000 and 6500 feet areawide. Thus 
any significant snows will be over the highest mountains. May see 
some locally breezy winds today with and behind the cold front. A 
stray thunderstorm may be possible over Grant County this evening. 
Precipitation will continue over extreme northeast Oregon on 
Tuesday, though it will gradually decrease through the day and end 
by late afternoon. Another system will begin to spread precipitation into 
our western most zones late Tuesday and Tuesday night. 90 


Long term...Wednesday through Monday...a longwave middle/upper level 
low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska southward to nearly 30n 
will aim a large pineapple express sub-tropical moisture plume 
associated with a cold front into the Pacific northwest on 
Wednesday. The front will reach the Washington Cascades by daybreak 
on Wednesday with categorical rain along the east slopes of the 
Washington Cascades throughout the day on Wednesday. However, 
central and northcentral Oregon will be in a rain shadowing scenario 
on Wednesday due to downslope winds off the Oregon Cascades. The 
front moves east of the Cascades Wednesday night for rain likely. 
Thursday the front remains quasi-stationary for widespread rain. On 
Friday through the weekend the low in the Gulf of Alaska morphs into 
a trough that digs southeast toward the coast thus send fresh 
moisture and rain into the region. Polan

Aviation...12z tafs...MVFR ceilings and visibility are possible at taf 
sites kykm and kalw in patchy fog until 15z. Otherwise mostly VFR 
conditions are likely until clouds and some showers work there way 
into taf site kdls...krdm...kbdn...kykm after 15z that could produce 
local MVFR conditions. The MVFR conditions may affect the remainder of 
the taf site after 18z. Polan
