NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1140 am MST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Update...updated aviation weather discussion. 


&& 




Synopsis... 
a Pacific low pressure system will lead to a significant rain event 
across the region today and continuing into Saturday. We anticipate 
rainfall to be most widespread today with more hit and miss 
showers on Saturday. Snow levels will remain high...lowering to 
around 7000-7500 feet by Saturday morning. Dry weather and a slow 
warming trend begins Sunday and continues through next Thursday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
coverage of showers this morning has trended down over southwest 
Arizona and southeast California. Activity has also become less 
widespread over metropolitan Phoenix but remains more widespread over Gila 
County. The downtrend looks to be associated with the exit of a vorticity 
maximum now centered roughly near the Cal-Nev-Ari borders. The main 
upper trough is changing shape due to the various vorticity lobes 
dumbelling around. Other areas of interest within the trough include 
the southern end near/west of the Baja California spur and another lobe/vorticity 
maximum centered along the central California coast. There may be 
another vorticity maximum to move through the forecast area later 
today/tonight but overall...the previously mentioned vorticity lobes will 
largely miss our forecast area for the duration of the event...per 
latest models. However...dynamical forcing will continue to affect 
Southeast Arizona and advection of those showers into our area may 
occur Saturday morning. As for thunderstorm potential...model cape 
for this afternoon continues to look quite meager from the GFS and 
better from the NAM. Rap is even better than the NAM but still under 
200 j/kg. Hrrr shows some isolated weak convection as well. Thus 
will hold on the slight chances. NAM shows a notable increase in 
cape for Saturday while the GFS is still meager. As for changes to 
the forecast in the short term...may need to make some downward 
adjustments to probability of precipitation...more noticeably in our western areas. More 
later. 


&& 


Previous discussion issued 255 am MST/155 am PST... 
at 2 am...vigorous upper level low continued to spin just off the 
northern Baja California coast...spreading copious amounts of moisture northward 
into Arizona and portions of far southeastern California. Current blended total 
precipitation water imagery showed 1.25-1.5 inches of precipitable water moving north 
across central Baja California...poised to move north into Arizona during the 
day today. Infrared imagery at 2 am showed an impressive stream of clouds 
overspreading the area from the south...and the latest 1.3 degree radar 
loop showed widespread showers spreading north across much of 
central/south central Arizona with areal coverage virtually 100 percent. 
Over the past 6 hours...virtually every Maricopa County flood 
control district gage has picked up measurable rain...with most 
totals between one tenth and one third of an inch. Phoenix has 
picked up 0.36 inches so far with this event...and the periods of 
expected heaviest rainfall have yet to occur. 


Model guidance has been remarkably consistent over the past few days 
regarding the evolution of this wet weather system...including 
details such as timing and quantitative precipitation forecast amounts. All guidance calls for an 
upper closed low to form over far southeastern California by later this afternoon... 
and as the low spins up the most significant precipitation is expected to 
occur over the area...especially across south central Arizona. Probability of precipitation will 
stay very high today...likely out west and categorical over our 
eastern forecast zones...with basically a 100 percent chance of rain 
continuing for the greater Phoenix area. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts should range 
between one quarter and one half inch today across south central 
Arizona...with locally higher amounts over higher terrain areas to the 
north and east of Phoenix. There will be modest instability over the 
central deserts today so we will continue to call for a slight 
chance of afternoon/evening thunderstorms basically from the lower Colorado River 
valley eastward. Should a storm develop...rainfall totals will 
become enhanced. Given all of the clouds and showers...high temperatures 
today will stay well below seasonal normals with highs over south 
central Arizona to hover in the upper 50s to low 60s. 


For tonight through the evening on Saturday...the upper low is 
prognosticated to very slowly translate to the east/southeast and as it 
does so there will be periods of enhanced lift/upward vertical velocity as vorticity 
spokes/lobes rotate around the main upper low. With moisture over 
the lower deserts expected to remain very high through Saturday... 
precipitable water values remaining between 0.75 and 1.00 inch...the continued 
dynamics from the vorticity lobes will keep showers going over most the 
region and probability of precipitation will stay elevated. Chance to likely probability of precipitation will 
remain across south central Arizona tonight and Saturday...with probability of precipitation 
dropping into the slight chance category over southeastern California during the day 
on Saturday. 


Overall...we are looking at storm total amounts ending Saturday 
evening ranging from one quarter to one half inch over the western 
deserts...to over one inch across the central deserts including the 
greater Phoenix area. Higher amounts...1.25 to nearly 2 inches...are 
possible in the higher terrain areas north and east of Phoenix. For 
now we expect rain to be continual and not locally heavy or intense 
enough to warrant flash flooding concerns. There may be areas that 
experience some urban or small stream flooding as time wears on and 
we can simply issue Flood Advisory products as needed to cover this 
contingency. 


High temperatures Saturday will remain well below normal and will change 
little from todays expected readings. Highs Saturday in the greater 
Phoenix area will stay in the upper 50s to low 60s...nearly 10 
degrees below seasonal normals. 


Sunday through Thursday... 
Sunday looks to be a dry and warmer day. Patchy morning fog is a 
possibility but there may be enough lingering clouds to hinder the 
radiational cooling necessary. The ridge slowly builds into the 
west Monday through Thursday for a gradual warming trend...and we 
can expect desert highs to reach back into the low to middle 70s by 
next Wednesday...with the warmer western deserts rising to near 80 
by next Thursday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa and ksdl... 
periods of rain will continue through 20z with occasional IFR ceilings 
and visibilities as a weather disturbance moves through the area from the 
south. In the wake of the weather disturbance...ceilings should lift to 
between 25-35 hundred feet (widespread mvfr) with visibilities between 3-5 
miles as rain diminishes to light scattered showers. MVFR conditions will 
continue overnight Friday...however another bout of rain is expected 
Saturday morning with widespread MVFR and occasional IFR conditions 
in ceilings/visibilities (between 10z and 17z sat). 




Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
widespread ceilings between 6-8 thousand above ground level with isolated rain showers 
through 12z Sat. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Sunday through Thursday... 
drier and significantly warmer weather is expected...as high 
pressure begins building back into the region. High temperatures in 
the lower deserts will start out in the upper 60s on Sunday and 
gradually climb into the upper 70s by Thursday. Winds are expected 
to be light and variable for most of the forecast period.
