NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
835 AM PDT MON SEP 26 2016

...SWITCH TO ONSHORE FLOW LATER TODAY...
...MARINE SURGE TONIGHT AND TUESDAY...
...MUCH COOLER AND WETTER LATE IN THE WEEK...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...STRONG HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE AREA
WILL SHIFT EAST TODAY. LIGHT OFFSHORE LOW-LEVEL FLOW IS EXPECTED TO
TURN ONSHORE EARLY THIS AFTERNOON ALONG THE COAST AND LATE AFTERNOON
OR EARLY EVENING INLAND AS THE SURFACE THERMAL TROUGH SHIFTS TO THE
INTERIOR VALLEYS. A WEAKENING FRONT APPROACHING THE COAST MONDAY
NIGHT WILL INDUCE A MARINE SURGE. IT LOOKS LIKE A MUCH COOLER AND
WETTER PATTERN DEVELOPS LATE IN THE WEEK.

.DISCUSSION...STRONG HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL DRIFT EAST TODAY.
MODELS SHOW THE SURFACE THERMAL TROUGH SHIFTING TO THE INTERIOR
VALLEYS THIS AFTERNOON. MARINE AIR IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE COASTAL
ZONES THIS AFTERNOON...BUT WILL HAVE LITTLE IMPACT OVER THE INTERIOR
UNTIL THIS EVENING. A WEAKENING FRONTAL SYSTEM APPROACHING THE COAST
MONDAY EVENING WILL PRODUCE A MUCH DEEPER MARINE LAYER TONIGHT AND
TUESDAY. THE ONSHORE PATTERN CONTINUES WEDNESDAY FOR SEASONAL
CONDITIONS. LONGER RANGE MODELS SHOW A DEEP UPPER TROUGH SETTLING
OFF THE COAST LATE IN THE WEEK THEN POSSIBLY SHIFTING INLAND OVER
THE WEEKEND FOR A RETURN TO COOLER AND WETTER CONDITIONS.
