Fire Weather Planning Forecast for NE Oregon and SE Washington
National Weather Service Pendleton OR
859 AM PDT Sat Aug 19 2017


.DISCUSSION...A flat westerly flow is over the Pacific Northwest
today as a ridge offshore begins to expand and build over the
area. This will bring mostly sunny and dry weather through Monday
though a weak disturbance passing to our north may bring
increasing clouds to Washington zones Sunday. The Columbia Gorge
and Cascade gaps will have wind gusts to 25 mph this afternoon and
early evening but should not create significant wind/RH threats.
Recoveries will be better tonight than begin weakening Sunday and
Monday nights. Thunderstorms are possible by Wednesday and
Thursday.


***Thunderstorms imply strong gusty winds***
***Winds are 20 foot 10 minute averages***
***CWR-chance of wetting rain 0.10 or greater***
