NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
835 am MST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


&& 


Synopsis... 
a fast moving trough will sweep through the area today...once again 
bringing a chance of showers to the region. Dry weather will return 
on Friday and a gradual warming trend will commence through the 
weekend. Dry weather with above normal temperatures are expected 
through next week...before a possible change to much colder weather 
by next Friday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
unsettled weather continues this morning across our County Warning Area as the last 
in a series of shortwaves moves across the region. Latest satellite 
and radar imagery is now showing this shortwave moving across 
south-central Arizona...with an area of light showers now moving across 
northwest Maricopa County...with the Maricopa flood control gages showing a 
few hundredths of an inch of rain falling from these showers. 
Although current radar trend are showing a weakening trend of these 
showers over the last hour or so as they continue to move slowly 
eastward...there will likely still be at least scattered sprinkles 
and light showers as they pass over the Phoenix area during the 
remainder of the morning...and early afternoon hours. Thus...will 
leave the chance-level probability of precipitation alone in the grids and zone forecast 
products for now. Other than some very minor adjustments to the 
hourly temperature grids...the remainder of the gridded products looks good 
for now...and no updates are planned at this time. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
shortwave trough is evident on water vapor imagery over southeast 
California this morning as of 08z...yet regional radar mosaic 
suggests only indicates very widely scattered showers across the 
area. Starting to see some modest cloud top cooling on infrared satellite 
imagery...meanwhile surface observation across the region are beginning to 
show lowering ceilings. Nearly all sites across the Phoenix metropolitan 
have seen clouds thicken up quite a bit since late Wednesday 
evening. Meanwhile dewpoints remain somewhat elevated in the middle 40s. 


The forecast for today remains on track...the low will move through 
the area this morning with showers becoming more widespread around 
12z. Despite the increase in coverage...amounts will be 
light...generally a few hundredths to a tenth of an inch. Precipitation 
will shift into the mountains North/East of Phoenix this afternoon 
and there could be a few wrap-around showers later this afternoon if 
skies clear and the atmosphere destabilizes. Local WRF ensemble and 
Storm Prediction Center sseo suggest afternoon showers would be confined more to the 
higher terrain North/East of Phoenix and this matches the inherited 
forecast closely. 


Northwesterly flow behind the departing trough will commence on 
Friday although a few very weak shortwaves are expected within the 
flow. Should have a negligible impact on our weather this weekend 
although varying amounts of high clouds are expected. Northwesterly 
flow will gradually give way to strong 500mb ridging on Monday which 
will allow the real warm-up to begin. Temperatures should easily climb into 
the lower 70s for much of the upcoming week along with none chances 
of precipitation. 


Looking just beyond the forecast period to next Friday...there are 
some pretty noteworthy differences between the GFS and the European 
models. While both models indicate troughing over the west...the GFS 
is much more progressive whereas the European brings a closed 
circulation over Arizona with substantially colder temperatures over 
the region. Consequently precipitation chances are much higher courtesy of 
the European. Ensemble guidance suggests a middle of the Road 
approach...not as progressive as the GFS but not nearly as deep as 
the European. Will sort out the details as we get closer to the end 
of next week but this will certainly warrant watching. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl... 


A weak trough will move through this morning bringing isolated to 
scattered light showers through around noon with the majority of the 
showers confined across higher terrain areas north of Phoenix. Ceilings 
for the most part will be in the low VFR range this morning...but a 
few brief periods of MVFR ceilings are possible...especially if 
any showers move overhead. Will begin to see breaks in the clouds by 
late morning and cloud decks should mainly be scattered starting 
this afternoon. Winds will remain light and generally follow typical 
diurnal patterns. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona...including kipl and 
kblh... 
clearing skies will occur from west to east this morning with clear 
to mostly clear skies dominating after 18z. Winds will remain light 
through the period. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Saturday through Wednesday... 
upper level ridging will take over starting late Saturday with 
warming temperatures and slightly drier conditions. Highs will warm 
to above normal starting Sunday with Lower Desert highs in the low 
to middle 70s for late in the period. Humidities will remain fairly 
high through the period with minimum values staying above 25 
percent. Winds will remain light for the most part with the 
exception of occasional afternoon breeziness mainly confined to 
southeast California and southwest Arizona Sunday through Tuesday.

Psr watches/warnings/advisories... 


Arizona...none. 


California...none.
