FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NW OREGON AND SW WASHINGTON
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
900 AM PDT MON SEP 1 2014

...CRITICAL CONDITIONS WITH WARM DRY OFFSHORE FLOW LATER THIS WEEK...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...STABLE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT CONTINUES. WILL
HAVE ANOTHER FRONT PASS ACROSS THE REGION LATER TUE...WITH SPOTTY
RAIN MAINLY OVER WASHINGTON AND FAR NW OREGON. THEN CHANGES...AS
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OFFSHORE WHILE THERMAL LOW PRESSURE BUILDS UP
THE COAST. RESULT WILL BE VERY DRY AND WARM CONDITIONS FOR LATER
THIS WEEK...ALONG WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE EASTERLY WINDS.

.DISCUSSION...NO MAJOR CHANGES FOR TODAY AND TUESDAY...AS SOMEWHAT
COOLER ONSHORE FLOW CONTINUES. FRONT ON TUESDAY SHOULD BE STRONG
ENOUGH TO PRODUCE SPOTTY RAIN ACROSS THE NORTHERN ZONES...BUT MAIN
EFFECT WILL BE THE INCREASED ONSHORE FLOW. EXPECT BREEZY WEST WINDS
OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND THROUGH THE COLUMBIA GORGE TUE NIGHT
AND ESPECIALLY ON WEDNESDAY. RAIN THREAT WILL END WEDNESDAY AM
AS THE FRONT PUSHES FURTHER EAST OF THE CASCADES.

THEN CHANGES WILL ARRIVE. STRONG THERMAL LOW PRESSURE WILL BUILD
ALONG THE OREGON COAST LATER WED AND THU...AND UP THE WASHINGTON
COAST LATE THU AND FRI. THIS WILL BRING VERY DRY AIR ACROSS WESTERN
WASHINGTON AND OREGON. WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE WINDS...THE CASCADES
MID SLOPES AND RIDGE AS WELL AS THOSE IN THE OREGON COAST RANGE
COULD REACH CRITICALLY DRY AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS BY LATE THU
AND CONTINUING THROUGH LATE FRI. NO FIRE WEATHER WATCH YET...BUT
WILL BE MONITORING THIS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SET UP CLOSELY OVER
NEXT 24 HOURS.
