A New View

I got this from Cliff Mass’s blog this morning (via Pappoose in Scappoose in the comments on the previous post).  Check out the difference the new radar (not operational yet) makes up on the Washingotn Coast.  There is a very juicy front offshore.  Here’s Portland’s radar view, partially blocked as always by the Coast Range: Notice the line of rain way out there appears quite weak.  Then check out the view from the new radar about two hours ago!  Wow…looks much more impressive doesn’t it?  Can’t wait for it to be operational during the upcoming winter.

    AREAS AFFECTED…ERN/CNTRL ORE…FAR SRN WA

    CONCERNING…SEVERE POTENTIAL…WATCH POSSIBLE

    VALID 242213Z – 242345Z

    FAST MOVING MULTICELLS…AND PERHAPS A FEW SUPERCELLS…ARE EXPECTED ACROSS ERN/CNTRL ORE AND FAR SRN WA THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON INTO EARLY NIGHT. ISOLATED DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGER STORMS. GIVEN THE LOW POTENTIAL FOR WIDESPREAD SVR…A WW WILL PROBABLY NOT BE NEEDED…BUT CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE MONITORED

    RECENT WV IMAGERY SHOWS A MOBILE UPPER-LEVEL DISTURBANCE ENTERING NRN CA…AND IS FORECAST TO MOVE N-NEWD INTO ORE DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. WITH THE APPROACH OF THIS UPPER FEATURE… STRENGTHENING LARGE SCALE ASCENT AND MIDLEVEL WIND FIELDS WILL OVERSPREAD THE REGION…WHICH WILL FAVOR AN INCREASE IN STORM COVERAGE AND ORGANIZATION. GIVEN THE PRESENCE OF STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES…TEMPERATURES WARMING INTO THE 80S…AND SURFACE DEWPOINTS RANGING FROM NEAR 60F ALONG THE COAST TO 50S OVER CNTRL ORE AND SRN WA…MLCAPE VALUES HAVE INCREASED TO NEAR 1000 J/KG. THIS INSTABILITY JUXTAPOSED WITH 40+ KT OF EFFECTIVE DEEP LAYER UNIDIRECTIONAL SHEAR WILL SUPPORT FAST MOVING MULTICELLS AND PERHAPS A FEW SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL. SVR WEATHER THREAT WILL PRIMARILY EXIST OVER PORTIONS OF ERN/CNTRL ORE DURING THE NEXT FEW HRS…BUT MAY ALSO SPREAD NWD INTO FAR SRN WA AFTER 00Z.

    AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
    203 PM PDT WED AUG 24 2011

    .SHORT TERM…AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH SEEN IN WATER VAPOR PICTURES BEYOND 130W WILL BE THE DOMINANT WEATHER MAKING FEATURE FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS. A VORT MAX LIFTING OUT OF THE TROUGH THIS EVENING… NEAR 40N 126W EARLY THIS AFTERNOON…IS EXPECTED TO LIFT ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT. THE PRESENCE OF ALTOCUMULUS CASTELLANUS CLOUDS AS WELL AS A FEW LIGHTNING STRIKES OVER SW OREGON AND OFF THE OREGON COAST ARE INDICATIVE OF A WIDE AREA OF INSTABILITY AHEAD OF THIS VORT MAX. WITH SURFACE DEWPOINTS IN THE OW 60S…WILL EXTEND THE CHANCES FOR THUNDER TO INCLUDE THE ENTIRE FORECAST AREA THIS EVENING. ALTHOUGH NOT EXPECTED TO MAKE A SERIOUS PUSH INLAND DUE TO CONTINUING SOUTHERLY FLOW ALOFT. ..THE COAST WILL SEE MARINE MOISTURE REFORM LATE TONIGHT FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME FOG AND DRIZZLE LATE TONIGHT AND THU MORNING.

    WITH THE UPPER TROUGH REMAINING OFFSHORE KEEPING THE MID AND UPPER LEVEL FLOW OUT OF THE SOUTH…THU FRI AND SAT ALSO POSE THREATS FOR THUNDERSTORMS. A MORE SOUTHERLY DIRECTION TO THE FLOW THOUGH SUGGESTS THE BEST CHANCE FOR CONVECTION SHOULD BE OVER THE CASCADES…SO WILL LIMIT THE POPS TO THE OREGON CASCADES FOR NOW. FRI LOOKS LIKE THE BEST CHANCE OVERALL AFTER TODAY AS MODELS SHOW A WELL DEFINED VORT MAX LIFTING UP LATE FRI AND FRI NIGHT. TEMPS FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS LIKELY TO REMAIN A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL.

    Timmy! Where are you? Looks like some Strays wandering about in your neighborhood!

    • Mike near Clackamas Town Center says:

      Timmy mentioned on his facebook page that he would be in Portland for a little while so I’m assuming he’s still in Portland right now.

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      Thanks Mike. I thought he said he was going somewhere, no doubt he’s busy or he would be with us at this party for sure.

    Parameters are becoming quite impressive if not explosive. With 3-4 hours left of heating LI may reach -10 along Cascades which is unheard of! Possibly -7 in PDX metro. Shear has exceeded all model projections. We could see severe t-storms and depending on how things develop the next 2-3 hours the SPC may issue a Mesoscale Discussion for Oregon. Stay tuned!!!

  8. Rob "Wrath" S.E. Portland says:

    Appears we have cell initiation over the southern Cascades and Foothills, so pretty close to my forecast of after 1 PM. No t-storms yet, but they will grow into them shortly.

  9. Rob "Wrath" S.E. Portland says:

    Without sounding big-headed or like I am patting myself on the back, I would have to say things thus far according to Mesoanalysis are developing very closely along the lines of my analysis last evening with instability already exceeding model/sref projections. I’m pretty happy about that. Now, let’s see how things develop the next 4-6 hours.

  10. pappoose in scappoose says:

    Sounds like the new “Dual Polarization Radar Technology” will do just about everything (except name the flakes, or keep the guy from climbing the KPTV Tower and eating meals). Hahaah!

  11. Austin(Cornelius) says:

    Might have a chance for some dry trains or albino donkeys eh pappoose?
    I see clouds going from a stratos, to a cumulus over the coast range and valley to my south and west.

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      I’m worried they’ll stay away after all the loud talk about em. We don’t call em Stray Albino Donkeys for no reason. They’re shy. Could say they prefer to wander around where they’re unexpected. Lets hope we haven’t spooked em.

  12. ThunderCloud - North Plains says:

    So does it look like this would be more of an east side event or could we get some good action up here in North Plains?

  13. Rob "Wrath" S.E. Portland says:

    Wow. I have NEVER seen this
    http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoanalysis/s11/scp/scp.gif?1314212554156
    Supercell Composite of 1 OFFSHORE? Never seen that….

  14. bgmike says:

    Is there a chance of hitting 90 today? or are the clouds going to stop the heating? currently at 82.

  15. Rob "Wrath" S.E. Portland says:

    Mesoanalysis works now, you have to use the ‘Radar’ Image underlay though which makes it harder to see things clearly. Actually selecting any of them besides ‘none’ works. Instability is presently building.

    500Mb cool to -13c overnight and flow remains S-SSE. Things look largely on track for increasing t-storms this afternoon and evening. PDX metro should see plenty of activity to the east/southeast and quite possibly impacting areas west of the Cascades/Foothills too. We’ll have to keep an eye on radar trends, WV/VIS, and Mesoanalysis(WHEN it decides to start working that is!)

  17. DP is up to 64…highest it’s been this whole year. Temp is 79

  18. Mesoanalysis site is down? You have to be kidding me LOL….

    SPC did downgrade the ‘Slight Risk’ area, yes, but the 5% risks for parts of PDX metro are unchanged. I still stand by my analysis from last night and as of yet see no reason to change that.

  19. Great satellite shot of Irene from earlier today:

      That’s one BAD looking storm! My wife flies back through Philly Sunday afternoon. I hope it blows by there before then…timing looks bad right now.

    • Mike near Clackamas Town Center says:

      The models still have Irene aimed at Massachusetts/Connecticut coast…History will be made in the NE if the models verify.

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

  21. PaulO says:

    So far this morning I am liking the SE upper level flow moving up into SW Oregon and, it appears, continuing further north, as well as what the radar is starting to show in SW Oregon and Northern California. Time will tell…

  22. Sean (From PDX now in Lebanon, IN) says:

    Here’s a link to the HRRR (http://rapidrefresh.noaa.gov/hrrrconus/). I use it to get an idea of how things could play out. It is currently showing a cell roll up the cascades and another just off the coast.

  23. Hopefully this gets up and running…

  24. PaulB/Eugene says:

    SPC a bit less bullish on severe storms for this afternoon. CAPE on this mornings NAM mesoscale run not quite as high or extensive. Seems energy from ULL will shear apart as it approaches central OR. Anyway looks like some moisture about to enter OR from CA. Still expecting lots of lightning. Think EUG south to Medford is best on west side, LaPine to Madras NE best on e side..

  25. CAPE

    Wow…don’t see this too often. A decent amount tonight, and then again Friday, mainly over and east of the Cascades then.

    http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~ovens/loops/wxloop.cgi?mm5d2_x_mcape+///3

  26. A little cooler this morning thankfully! Made it down to 56. Will be interesting to see what happens tonight. That ULL off of the coast is already headed in our direction.

    Me no “likey” this weather…

  28. pappoose in scappoose says:

    I really like it when we have “a perfect setup for convection developing over the mountains in the afternoon then over a good part of our area tonight as elevated nocturnal convection that decouples from the boundary layer”

    National Weather Service Portland or
    227 am PDT Wednesday Aug 24 2011

    The upper trough off the central California coast will lift north
    today and approach our forecast area from the south this
    afternoon…then across our forecast area tonight as it then begins
    to turn east. With such a warm day today and dewpoints around 60… this is a perfect setup for convection developing over the mountains in the afternoon then over a good part of our area tonight as elevated nocturnal convection that decouples from the boundary layer. The upper trough moves east of the Cascades Thursday morning so that the convection should then move off to the east.

    There is yet another upper trough forecast to set up off the
    California coast later Thursday and Thursday night…then lift north
    through Oregon Friday afternoon and Friday night. We have another shot at some convection Friday afternoon with elevated nocturnal convection again Friday night. Tolleson .

    Nobody answered my question about the darn jet stream week long history and instead responded to my political joke which is ironic.

    Are people’s minds really that far down the gutter? If that’ so I feel sorry for humanity as a whole. *gulps*

    Weather images dot org has a clip of the jet stream from like yesterday but nothing to really point a history.

  31. New SPC Discussion …. All severe risks have expanded north and now a ‘Slight Risk’ has been introduced.

    There is now a 5% risk for severe hail and wind in PDX metro. IF things continue to progress DO NOT be surprised if there is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch issued for parts of Oregon.

    VALID 241200Z – 251200Z

    …PARTS OF WRN AND CENTRAL OREGON…
    MODELS SUGGEST THE AIR MASS…ESPECIALLY ACROSS WRN ORE…SHOULD BECOME MODERATELY UNSTABLE THIS AFTERNOON. FORCING FOR ASCENT SPREADING INLAND WITH THE MIDLEVEL SYSTEM WILL SUPPORT TSTM DEVELOPMENT FROM W-E LATE THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING. GIVEN THE INSTABILITY AND EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR UP TO 40 KT…A SLIGHT RISK HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN THIS OUTLOOK FOR THIS REGION.

    This is mainly for the Cascades, but this is really becoming interesting folks!

    • Kyle From Silverton says:

      From your earlier post it sort of answers my question about the jet stream where you said we have a segment of it here but I am uncertain what that applies?

    • This is somewhat beginning to remind me of June 4th, 2009, but I don’t think a daytime outbreak will move into the northern Willamette Valley as it did on that day. It would be even a bit more rare to see Severe Warnings well after dark into the overnight hours.

    • If my migraine is any indication, it should be interesting.

    • Sean (Lebanon, IN) says:

      Both of us in a SLGT risk for today.. Trying to remember the last time WRN Oregon had a SLGT risk for severe weather. Looks like it should be an interesting day to say the least.

    • Sean (From PDX now in Lebanon, IN) says:

      Downgraded the SLGT risk for WRN Oregon..

      …ORE…

      WELL-DEFINED VORTICITY MAXIMUM OFF THE NRN CA COAST IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN TODAY WHILE PROGRESSING NEWD INTO THE CNTRL PART OF THE STATE BY 25/12Z. LATEST CONVECTION-ALLOWING AND MESOSCALE MODEL GUIDANCE INDICATE THAT STORM COVERAGE WILL REMAIN QUITE LIMITED ACROSS THE REGION TODAY…THEREFORE SEVERE PROBABILITIES AND CATEGORICAL SLIGHT RISK HAVE BEEN DOWNGRADED. NONETHELESS… SOME POTENTIAL FOR STRONG WIND GUSTS AND HAIL WILL EXIST GIVEN AN ENVIRONMENT FEATURING STEEP
      LAPSE RATES…A DEEP SUB-CLOUD LAYER AND 30+ KT SLY FLOW ABOVE 3KM AGL.

    *My Analysis*
    In my honest opinion I really do not rely on Computer Models for convective setups such as this. Why? They too often miss these things, are too weak with instability and other parameters, and the fact is situation like this can change quickly. I instead rely on Water Vapor loop to see how far the S-SE flow aloft has expanded northward. How far offshore does it extend. To look for obvious signs of enhanced convection occurring northeast of the ULL as well as good indicators of lift. Then I would use the SREF ensembles often starting tonight and Mesoanalysis probably by 2-4 PM tomorrow to gauge how well instability, shear, pwat, and lapse rates parameters are developing.

    I would expect quite a bit more instability to develop than anything being modeled currently, perhaps slightly better LI, and maybe a bit more shear, especially if a jet segment moves over Western Oregon(Look for 0-8km, 0-6km shear values over 50kts if so) We’ll have to see how things look tomorrow by say 11 AM that should give us a bit better idea if you ask me. Right now I would expect t-storms along the southern Cascades and southwest Oregon, some strong and perhaps some Severe Thunderstorm Warnings issued.

    Best bet is that storms fire sometime after 10 PM somewhere along a line near Three Sisters-Eugene and move northward both increasing in intensity and coverage over time. A very good likelihood those in PDX metro and the northern Willamette Valley see plenty of flashes/bolts lighting up the skies to our east and southeast with a chance this activity even impacts areas west of the Cascades/Foothills too. I doubt anything overly strong at that point just the usual electrified elevated convection, but we’ll have to keep an eye on the Mesoanalysis/WV Loop and see what dynamics(Especially surface winds, flow aloft, and shear) have spread northward..

    • Muxpux says:

      U think longview is gonna be too far north to get anything? Storms like to fizz out just before they make it up here, giving us plain rain.

    • pappoose in scappoose says:

      O…I certainly will ask you.

      Say Rob…could you tell me how things look tomorrow…by say…11 AM? I’ll for sure stay tuned for a update. Hahaah!

      Don’t mind me Rob, you know how hard it is for me to keep control of the youngster in me.

    • @Mux, I think with good surface heating 85-90F, dewpoints 59-65, probably increasing clouds later in the day and no onshore flow to stabilize things that convection may survive north of the Columbia River. Again its something I watch in real-time, not using crummy models 🙂

      @Pappoose, haha yeah…. that’s alright! I’ll try to update things as often as possible tomorrow.

    • According to WV Loop, S-SE flow aloft has pushed north to about Eugene/Coos Bay now and is moving N-NNW.

    Latest from Cliff Mass, on Hurricane Forecasting:

  36. Mike near Clackamas Town Center says:

    The GFS 00Z has Hurricane Irene taking dead aim at Massachusetts/Connecticut coast as a Cat. 2.

    • Irene has jogged due west, but that could just be due to the centrifugal force pulling on the center causing the wobble, but if it were to continue more westerly it will miss its next tropical forecast point to the south…. We know how Hurricanes can have a mind of their own and when the center is undergoing either weakening or strengthening that can also affect movement, if not temporarily…

  37. Karl Bonner says:

    Dewpoints today got up to 58 at DLS airport, and I could definitely feel the humidity in the air this evening. Humidity dropped off during the middle of the afternoon to only a 50-degree dewpoint, then rebounded this evening. Wonder why?

    Moisture and clouds increase across the area Wednesday afternoon ahead of the California low for a chance of thunderstorms over the

    and if correct should enhance thunderstorm activity.

  40. Kyle From Silverton says:

    Dad wishes to know what the trend for the jet stream has been the last week as that’s a VERY important figure in what the future holds.

    Are we *under the gun* jet stream wise?

    P.S: Don’t forget that the Washington DC earthquake is George Bush’s fault. Everything starts with him. 🙂

    • IceCold says:

      Yep! Obama officially came out and said the Bush Fault was the reason for the earthquake today. He also said the 5.8 magnitude gave him the authority to increase the debt ceiling by 5.8 trillion this year.

    • Kyle From Silverton says:

      And don’t forgot that earthquake is also the result of Global Warming so we got to ban progress by that many times while we lets Mr Gore and his enviromental hypocrites run as many devices in his mansion as they wants. All the while we (the public) sit in the dark figuring out what to do next since the United States does not make anything any more thanks to China. 😉
