Fire Weather Planning Forecast for NW Oregon and SW Washington
National Weather Service Portland OR
815 AM PDT Thu Apr 27 2017

...COOL AND UNSETTLED TODAY...
...WARMING AND DRYING TREND FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...Cool and unsettled conditions will
continue today, but a gradual drying trend looks to begin Friday.
High pressure spreads over the area Saturday, but another weak front
moves through the region Sunday. Warmer and drier weather returns
for the middle and latter half of next week.

.DISCUSSION...Cool northwest flow aloft over the area today will
result in continued unsettled conditions today. High pressure well
offshore starts to shift toward the coast Friday, for the start of a
brief drying trend. The ridge moves inland Saturday, which will
allow slightly above-normal daytime temperatures. However, the ridge
looks to be short-lived as longer range models show another weak
front moving into the area Sunday. The first part of next week looks
cool and moist as well. However, models also show a return to warmer
and drier conditions around the middle of next week.
