NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR  
840 AM PDT SAT AUG 18 2018  
   
..WARMER TODAY
 
   
..THUNDERSTORM THREAT FOR THE CASCADES SUNDAY AFTERNOON
 
 
   
BROADCAST DISCUSSION
 
HIGH PRESSURE STRENGTHENS OVER THE  
AREA TODAY, WHICH WILL BRING WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS. AN UPPER  
LOW SETTLES OFF THE OREGON COAST SUNDAY. THERE MAY ENOUGH  
INSTABILITY FOR A THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE CASCADES LATE  
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY. THE UPPER LOW FINALLY PUSHES EAST WEDNESDAY  
AFTERNOON. MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED LATE IN THE WEEK.  
   
DISCUSSION
 
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE AREA WILL STRENGTHEN  
TODAY, RESULTING IN 5-10 DEGREES OF WARMING ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA.  
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE AREA OFF THE WASHINGTON COAST TODAY IS  
EXPECTED TO SLIDE SOUTH TONIGHT AND SUNDAY. THIS WILL INCREASE THE  
ONSHORE LOW-LEVEL FLOW TONIGHT, BUT ALSO CREATE THE POTENTIAL FOR  
SOME THUNDERSTORMS FOR THE CASCADES SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE LOW SHIFTS  
EAST MONDAY, BUT A SECONDARY PIECE WILL HANG BACK OFF THE OREGON  
COAST. THIS SECOND PORTION EVENTUALLY BECOMES ANOTHER CLOSED LOW BY  
TUESDAY. CLOSED LOW PRESSURE AREAS OFF THE SOUTH OREGON AND NORTH  
CALIFORNIA COAST ARE FAVORABLE FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT OVER THE  
CASCADES. THERE IS THE CHANCE SOME STORMS COULD FORM IN THE CASCADE  
FOOTHILLS OR EVEN THE WILLAMETTE VALLEY AND SW WASHINGTON INTERIOR  
VALLEYS, BUT OVERALL CONFIDENCE IN MODEL DETAILS REMAINS LOW. SMOKE  
WILL ALSO BECOME A PLAYER EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE UPPER TROUGH FINALLY  
PUSHES EAST WEDNESDAY, FOR THE START OF A COOLER PATTERN.
