NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1035 PM MST Thursday Feb 26 2015 


Update...updated aviation discussion. 


Synopsis... 
dry weather with above normal temperatures are expected through the 
end of the week. However...low pressure will approach the area this 
weekend bringing gusty winds and widespread rainfall to the area 
along with much cooler temperatures. Cool and unsettled weather is 
likely to continue into early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
another very pleasant day for outdoor activities across our County Warning Area 
today as a dry northwesterly flow aloft kept skies mainly 
clear...except for some patchy high cloudiness passing overhead from 
time-to-time. Phoenix Sky Harbor saw a high of 77f today...which is 
4 degrees above the normal for this date. After another night with 
lows in the 40s and 50s...we should see one more dry day with highs 
in the 70s to near 80 on Friday before a major change in the weather 
occurs this weekend...as an upper low...which is just now located 
just west of Vancouver Island...moves southward along the West Coast 
on Friday and Friday night. The latest 00z NAM...and 00z GFS are now 
showing light showers...and higher elevation snows developing on 
Saturday and Saturday night over the higher terrain of northern and 
central Arizona...with a few showers over the lower deserts...as an 
increasingly moist westerly flow is orographically lifted into the 
region. More substantial rains over the lower deserts...with heavy 
precipitation possible over the higher terrain look to be in the cards for 
Sunday through Monday as the main frontal band/upper jet provide the 
necessary lift of what will be a very moist airmass (pwats around 
1.00 inch)...as a band of light-moderate rain/snow (with embedded 
heavier showers) moves slowly across Arizona. As far as the short 
term is concerned...inherited forecasts for tonight and Friday look 
good...and no further updates are planned. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
early afternoon satellite imagery revealing mostly clear skies for 
the southern half of Arizona and most of southeast California. The 
upper level ridge of high pressure is still in place across the 
eastern Pacific...driving a northwest flow of dry air into the 
southwest states. Increasing middle and high clouds over the next 24 
hours with the passage of a shortwave feature and broad area of 
height falls will start filtering into the southwest. Temperatures 
tomorrow will be similar to that of today...several degrees above 
normal. 


The big weather change will start Saturday as the upper level low 
digs down the West Coast and the jet stream noses into southeast 
California and southwest Arizona. A modest amount of moisture 
increase over the area starting Saturday will help initiate a 
prolonged period of unsettled weather Saturday through Monday. 
Precipitable water values climb to over half an inch by Saturday 
morning...and continue to rise to over an inch across southcentral 
Arizona by Monday. A 115 knots jet noses into southwest Arizona which 
creates a tight temperature gradient...500 mb temperatures spanning -15c to 
-26c...and will increase the wind speeds mainly across southeast 
California for Saturday. Winds gusting Saturday between 30 to 35 kts 
intermittently as the front pushes through will approach Wind 
Advisory criteria but at this time think we'll hold off on any 
headlines. From late Saturday through most of Monday...the cold 
front appears to stall and have a very slow progression as the low 
begins to stretch out. By late Monday...the trough will begin to 
flatten out and lift eastward...with another wave of energy rotating 
around the trough Tuesday. 


As with any major precipitation event...the timing and exact amounts 
are of high question. Operational model guidance suggests precipitation 
will begin after 12z Saturday across northern Arizona and Southern 
California and will fill in across the lower deserts late Saturday 
into Sunday...and again linger through later in the day Monday. As 
models continue to make adjustments...12z Sunday through 12z Monday 
seems to have a decent heavy rain time period with the 00z Monday 
through 12z Monday potentially holding the higher rain amounts. Pop 
grids were adjusted accordingly...as well as some minor changes to 
the quantitative precipitation forecast grids. This storm is panning out for a decent chance of 1 to 
1.25 inches around the Phoenix area and values upwards of 1.5 to 2 
inches along the higher terrain north and east of Phoenix...over a 
36 to 48 hour time period. 


Monday will be a transition day as the cold core of the system makes 
some progress eastward. 500 mb temperatures dip into -23c first over 
portions of Joshua Tree National Park and into central Arizona by 
00z Tuesday. The timing of precipitation right now looks to be 
slightly off when the cold core punches through southeast 
California...so the rain-snow mix should not accumulate in Joshua 
Tree. However...when the cold core moves into central Arizona late 
Monday into Tuesday a convective precipitation threat will remain into the 
higher terrain areas north and east of Phoenix. Rain to snow 
accumulation between 00z Tuesday and 00z Wednesday will likely be 
restricted to elevations of southern Gila country above 5500 feet. All 
this said...at this time...not too concerned with major flooding or 
any headline products at this time. 




Conditions remain unsettled into Tuesday as well as a secondary 
trough dives through the Great Basin into Arizona. The impacts of 
this trough are much less clear as there is a tremendous amount of 
spread in the ensembles with respect to the magnitude of this trough 
and its expected trajectory through the Great Basin. GFS-based 
guidance indicates a more southward trajectory along with scattered 
showers across the area whereas the European model (ecmwf) and its members keep all 
precipitation well north of the forecast area. Going to maintain probability of precipitation for 
some portions of the area on Tuesday per the GFS. With anomalously 
cold temperatures aloft it should be easy for scattered showers to 
develop with a minimal amount of forcing but the finer details will 
need to be sorted out down the Road. Finally by middle week any/all 
forcing associated with this upper low shifts to the east and dry 
northwesterly flow takes hold. 


For as warm as February has been...temperatures this weekend into 
the first few days of March will more than make up for it. 
Clouds/showers on Sunday and Monday could conceivably keep high 
temperatures in the upper 50s across the deserts although some moderation 
is expected by the middle of the week. Post-frontal dry advection 
Tuesday/Wednesday will result in some chilly mornings by middle week 
with lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s across the deserts. Depending 
on how quickly skies clear and winds die down...may need to address 
the potential for freeze headlines in some portions of the forecast 
area /especially if the cooler and drier European model (ecmwf) verifies/. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa and ksdl... 
southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 


Dry northwesterly flow aloft will keep dry conditions in place at 
all the terminals through the taf period. A weather disturbance 
approaching from the northwest will begin to increase the high cloud 
coverage over the region on Thursday afternoon/evening...and begin 
to increase the southwesterly winds at kipl and southerly winds at 
kblh by Thursday evening. No significant aviation impacts through 
the taf period. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Saturday through Wednesday... 
conditions will turn much cooler...wetter and unsettled starting 
Saturday as a strong low pressure system nears the region. Breezy to 
windy westerly winds can be expected across southeast California and 
southwest Arizona for Saturday afternoon. Rain will become likely 
Saturday night across south-central Arizona and persist through 
Sunday. High temperatures across the deserts will fall into the 
upper 50s to low 60s starting Sunday...lasting into the middle of 
the week. Humidity levels will be elevated throughout the entire 
period. A second low pressure system may bring continued 
precipitation chances for Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Psr watches/warnings/advisories... 


Arizona...none. 


California...none.
