NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
202 PM PDT WED MAY 27 2015

FORECAST IS INTENDED FOR INCLUSION IN BURN PLAN FOR MAY 28.
IF CONDITIONS BECOME UNREPRESENTATIVE...CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.

.DISCUSSION...THE WARMING TREND WHICH BEGAN WEDNESDAY SHOULD
CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY AS A WEAK UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE PERSISTS ACROSS OREGON. THE PRESENCE OF THIS UPPER LEVEL
RIDGE SHOULD KEEP THE BURN AREA ABOVE THE MARINE LAYER THROUGH
FRIDAY. WINDS WILL BE MOSTLY TERRAIN-DRIVEN...THOUGH SOME
NORTHWEST GUSTS ARE POSSIBLE NEAR THE TOP OF THE UNIT. AS
TEMPERATURES WARM UP...EXPECT A THERMAL TROUGH TO INCREASE LOW-
LEVEL INSTABILITY A BIT TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY. THIS INSTABILITY MAY
ALSO BE ENOUGH TO CAUSE SOME AFTERNOON CUMULUS BUILDUPS ALONG THE
CASCADE CREST EACH AFTERNOON...WITH A STRAY THUNDERSTORM POSSIBLE.
HOWEVER...ANY STORMS SHOULD REMAIN NEAR THE CREST AND EAST OF THE
BURN AREA.

*** NOTE THAT WINDS WILL BE GUSTY AND ERRATIC IF ANY THUNDERSTORMS
 DEVELOP NEARBY ***
