FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NW OREGON AND SW WASHINGTON
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
843 AM PDT WED JUL 29 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 11 PM PDT
THURSDAY...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL KEEP
VERY HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS IN PLACE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS.
A THERMAL TROUGH OVER THE OREGON CASCADES AND FOOTHILLS AND
THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY COMBINED WITH
MID LEVEL HAINES 6 CONDITIONS WILL BRING ENHANCED MIXING...
CREATING THE POTENTIAL FOR PLUME DOMINATED FIRES.
TEMPERATURES MAY COOL A COUPLE OF DEGREES OVER THE WEEKEND...
BUT WILL REMAIN VERY WARM. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE LANE COUNTY CASCADES OVER THE
WEEKEND.

.DISCUSSION...A STRONG RIDGE OF UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL
BRING VERY HOT AND DRY CONDITIONS TO THE REGION THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. POOR OVERNIGHT HUMIDITY RECOVERIES WILL
BE SEEN EACH OF THE NEXT FEW NIGHTS NEAR AND ABOVE THE THERMAL
BELT AT AROUND 2500 TO 4000 FT AS A STRONG SUBSIDENCE INVERSION
DEVELOPS. IN ADDITION A THERMAL TROUGH WILL PERIODICALLY BE
MOVING BETWEEN THE SOUTHERN OREGON COAST AND OVER THE OREGON
CASCADES AND FOOTHILLS AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE WILLAMETTE
VALLEY...WHICH COMBINED WITH MID LEVEL HAINES 6 CONDITIONS WILL
CREATE IMPRESSIVE MIXING HEIGHTS. WITH DRY FUELS ALSO IN PLACE
...EXPECT CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS.

THE UPPER LEVEL RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN SLIGHTLY OVER THE
WEEKEND...AND THE THERMAL TROUGH IS MODELED TO PUSH EAST OF THE
CASCADES. THIS MAY COOL TEMPERATURES BY A COUPLE OF DEGREES...
BUT IT WILL LIKELY REMAIN QUITE WARM THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THE
FORECAST MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE THAT SOME INCREASED
MID LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BRUSH THE REGION FROM THE SOUTH...
POTENTIALLY TRIGGERING SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE
LANE COUNTY CASCADES DURING THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. PYLE
