NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
815 PM MST Sat Feb 13 2016 




Synopsis... 
strong high pressure and unseasonably warm temperatures will remain 
dominant over the southwestern United States into the middle of next 
week. Clear skies...dry conditions and relatively light winds will 
continue through the period. Some minor relief from the unusually 
warm conditions will arrive by the end of next week...but 
temperatures will still remain above seasonal normals and likely 
still above 80 degrees across much of the lower deserts. 


&& 


Discussion... an unusually thick atmosphere under strong high 
pressure will continue to provide a broken record of afternoon heat 
the next several days. Under mostly clear skies we are forecasting 
record high temperatures in Phoenix sun...Mon...Tue...and Wednesday. Needless to 
say not much going on weather wise...but enjoying the heat 
especially with afternoon humidities in the 8 to 10 percent range... 
making the feels like temperature cooler. Current dry and warm 
forecasts look good. No updates necessary. 


However on a side note...did anyone see how fast the closed low 
developed 1500 miles southwest of San Diego. Last night at 2 am MST 
is was just a little seedling...10 hours later it was a full blown 
powerful storm. This is what happens when kinetic energy shifts 
south into warm El Nino waters. Last week we thought this potential 
would develop a little closer to the Baja California coast and fill the 
southern Arizona deserts with promising rain. However the unpredictable 
and ever changing fluid dynamical upstream pattern forced this 
system farther west and south...only to fade with time as it 
eventually moves into far southwest Mexico by next weekend. 




Previous discussion...313 PM MST... 


County Warning Area temperatures are just peaking into the 80s...on their way to low 
to middle 80 degree readings for this afternoon under mostly clear skies. 
Midday satellite loops continue to show the high pressure ridge 
transitioning off to our east while losing some amplitude as the 
Pacific storm track moves onshore into the West Coast. Several 
embedded features are traveling along the western flank of the 
ridge...generating some scattered cloud coverage across southeast California/S Nevada/west 
Arizona. These clouds may translate into Arizona this afternoon ahead of an 
approaching shortwave but should not be broad enough in coverage to 
stall any further daytime heating. 


Upstream Pacific shortwave will have troughing heights cutting far 
south enough to pass through socal and Arizona later tonight and into 
Sunday...but with very dry airmass and weak ul support...best we can 
expect will be some passing hl clouds and maybe a degree or two 
knocked off our temperatures for today and Sunday. While airmass 
temperatures will mostly stay below 850mb temperatures from earlier in the 
week with the passing shortwave...increasing tropopause thicknesses 
particularly through the 1000-500mb level generally corroborate the 
idea that the western County Warning Area/southeast California will see a few more degrees of 
warmth comparative to our Arizona locales Sunday. Upper shortwave will 
exit to the east by late Sunday...with another building Pacific Ridge 
intruding into the region from the west. Nighttime winds driven by 
slope gradients with surface highs to our north will also work to keep 
overnight conditions on the warmer side and more mixed...lending that 
much more aide to getting the days started off warmer. Several 
records are in danger for the coming work week...please reference the 
climate section below for the details. 


Little has changed with the forecast thinking through the middle of 
next week as the Pacific Ridge rebuilds and shifts eastward over the 
western United States for Monday through Wednesday. 500mb heights 
only increase very slightly through the period...but we gain a few 
degrees of warming which will help to move our highs into the upper 
80s to around 90 over the lower deserts for Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Phoenix will have the potential to hit 90 degrees...most likely on 
Wednesday...and this would be the earliest 90 degree occurrence on 
record as the current earliest date is February 24. 


Model deterministic and ensemble guidance has been fairly consistent 
with showing a fast moving shortwave trough passing by to our north 
next Thursday while also bringing a weak cold front through the 
Desert Southwest. We should also see a moisture increase and a 
decent amount of middle and high clouds on Thursday...but any rain 
chances will stay across the northern half of Arizona. Some 
cooling will take place...though latest guidance shows the cooling 
will be less than we thought a couple days ago. Highs are likely to 
drop around five degrees or so with highs mainly in the lower 80s 
for both Thursday and Friday. 


The GFS deterministic/ensemble guidance and European ensemble mean 
indicate the potential for a southwesterly sub-tropical flow setting 
up next Friday and Saturday...but showing somewhat limited moisture. 
Models often show a dry bias this far out...but am not quite going to 
jump into putting in rain chances...would like to see another set of 
model runs before doing so. This potential set up may bring a couple 
days of isolated to scattered shower/thunderstorms...but likely 
nothing of any organized nature. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl...and through 
at least 20z Sat...mostly clear skies with light and variable winds 
under 8 knots. 




Southeast California/southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 


Mostly clear skies with light surface wind under 8 knots through 18z 
sun...however between 18z sun and 23z sun...gusty north winds 15 to 
25 knots will develop mainly along the Colorado River valley. 




Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Monday through Friday... 
an unseasonably strong high pressure ridge will remain in place over 
the western states into early next week. This will bring mostly sunny 
skies and a persistent period of well above normal high 
temperatures...with daytime highs at many lower elevation and desert 
sites warming into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Minimum humidity 
levels will hover in the teens across all districts. Light winds are 
expected during this period...except for afternoon breezes Monday 
through Thursday.
