FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NW OREGON AND SW WASHINGTON
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
230 PM PDT FRI APR 17 2015

...WEAK ONSHORE SURGE TONIGHT...
...WARMING OVER THE WEEKEND...
...TURNING UNSETTLED MID NEXT WEEK...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATE THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. A WEAK FRONT WILL BRUSH THE NORTH ZONES
THIS EVENING AND TONIGHT...WHICH WILL INDUCE STRONGER ONSHORE LOW-
LEVEL FLOW TONIGHT AND SATURDAY MORNING. THE UPPER RIDGE STRENGTHENS
SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY AND THEN HOLDS FIRM MONDAY FOR WARMING
CONDITIONS. AN UNSETTLED PATTERN RETURNS TUESDAY.

.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE WILL PERSIST OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
THROUGH MONDAY. A VERY WEAK DISTURBANCE MOVES EAST OF THE AREA BY
SATURDAY MORNING. THIS WILL INCREASE THE ONSHORE LOW-LEVEL FLOW
TONIGHT. NORTH LOW-LEVEL FLOW DEVELOPS BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
OVERALL...EXPECT DAYTIME TEMPERATURES TO BE THE SAME OR A COUPLE
DEGREES WARMER DESPITE THE EARLY MORNING ONSHORE FLOW. THE UPPER
RIDGE STRENGTHENS SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY...THEN SHIFTS DIRECTLY
OVER THE AREA MONDAY. MONDAY LOOKS TO BE THE WARMEST DAY INLAND WITH
THE SURFACE THERMAL TROUGH CENTERED OVER THE INTERIOR VALLEYS AND
LIGHT OFFSHORE LOW-LEVEL FLOW. SUBSIDENCE INVERSIONS WILL BECOME
MORE PREVALENT SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY MORNING RESULTING IN
POOR TO MODERATE HUMIDITY RECOVERY OVER THE COAST RANGE AND
CASCADES. LONGER RANGE MODELS SHOW AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH NEARING THE
COAST MONDAY NIGHT...WHICH WILL LIKELY RESULT IN A MUCH STRONGER
MARINE SURGE. CONFIDENCE REMAINS FAIRLY HIGH THAT THE LATTER HALF OF
NEXT WEEK WILL BE COOLER WITH A THREAT OF PRECIPITATION.
