FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NW OREGON AND SW WASHINGTON
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
900 AM PDT THU JUL 28 2016

...WARM AND DRY THROUGH FRIDAY...

.BROADCAST DISCUSSION...WARMEST DAY TODAY AS THE UPPER RIDGE PEAKS
OVERHEAD. WEAK MARINE PUSH WILL BRING BREEZY WINDS AND INCREASING
HUMIDITY FRIDAY EVENING...ESPECIALLY TO THE CENTRAL GORGE. WEAK
TROUGH AND INCREASING ONSHORE FLOW WILL DROP TEMPERATURES FOR THE
WEEKEND AND BRING PERIODS OF DRIZZLE TO THE COAST AND COAST RANGE.
HAINES 5 VALUES DRIVEN BY DRY AIR ALOFT.

.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WILL BRING
WELL ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES TO INTERIOR LOCATIONS ALONG WITH
MARGINALLY CRITICAL HUMIDITY TO THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND HIGH
CASCADES. EXPECT A SLIGHTLY STRONGER TYPICAL SUMMERTIME WIND
PATTERN WITH THE CENTRAL AND SOUTH WILLAMETTE VALLEY GETTING THE
MOST BREEZY WINDS TODAY. ONSHORE FLOW INCREASED LATER ON FRIDAY TO
BRING THE BREEZY WINDS TO THE CENTRAL GORGE BUT ALSO
WITH INCREASING HUMIDITY. STILL EXPECT GRASS FIRES MAY GET A FEW
HOURS OF DECENT BURNING CONDITIONS TODAY AND FRIDAY BUT REMAIN
MARGINAL ENOUGH SUCH THAT ONLY A HEADS UP HEADLINE IS WARRANTED.

LOW PRESSURE WILL CROSS THE PACNW MONDAY BUT OUR AREA WILL BE ON
THE SOUTHERN FRINGE OF IT AND LOOKS TO REMAIN RELATIVELY DRY.
LOOKS LIKE THERE COULD BE SOME SHOWERS NORTH OF SALEM BUT STAYING
WELL SHORT OF WETTING RAINS. ANY ELEVATED HAINES CONDITIONS OVER
THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS IS PURELY DRIVEN BY THE DRY AIR ALOFT AND
SHOULD NOT PRESENT MUCH CONCERN.
