Jones is the easiest, simplest launch to forecast of any location. You can know many days ahead whether to go, or you can know in the next 1/2 hour.
Days ahead just look at your TV, browser, anything and look for a 10 degree or more separation for Astoria to Longview/Kelso/Portland.
The morning of... look at any satellite image for a cloud layer burning away from Portland, but lingering some in Astoria.
The time to drive.... confirm a temperature spread, and also check the pressures to be sure if you like.
Normally fires at 2pm, maybe 2:30 to dark.

Killers are:
Super heatwaves that can rarely cook up Astoria.
Clouds layers that fail to burn in Kelso/Longview/Portland
