NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
240 am MST Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
a Pacific storm system will move into the area starting today 
bringing extensive clouds...increasing moisture and localized 
chances for showers through Saturday afternoon. Through 
tonight...any rainfall will be focused mainly over higher terrain 
locations...with sprinkles more likely across the deserts. Better 
chances for showers and thunderstorms will occur on Saturday across 
central and eastern Arizona. Daytime temperatures today and Saturday 
will fall to more seasonal values...however quickly warm back well 
into the 90s early next week after the storm system has passed. 


&& 


Discussion... 
a seasonably vigorous shortwave trough has progressed to near the 
121w latitude early this morning...with the small pv anomaly core 
tucked in the basal portion of the wave around 25n. Objective 
analysis suggests a -16c to -18c 500 mb cold core remains situated in 
the upstream northerly flow quadrant...with the eastern section of the 
wave structure characterized by deep meridional warm moist 
advection. This configuration may mean further deepening and future 
negative tilt ejection of the wave into the forecast area. Jet 
difluence ahead of the wave looks impressive on WV imagery partially 
tapping a narrow plume of subtropical moisture and becoming 
manifested in a baroclinic Leaf type structure (further evidence of 
the potency of this system). 


With moist meridional flow and upward vertical velocity in the 600-400mb layer already 
established ahead of the wave...thicker cloud cover will hold over 
the region today. Both GOES and AMSU total precipitable water analysis show a 
corridor of 1.0 inch amounts advecting towards the forecast area 
originating west of the Baja California corridor. Forecast soundings suggest 
much of this moisture is either aloft above the 700 mb layer...or very 
shallow below the h9 layer with notable dry air trapped between. In 
addition...with the introduction of this moisture...midlevel lapse 
rates will suffer limiting any instability based aid towards deeper 
vertical motions. Thus..despite the robust synoptic scale ascent 
throughout the day in association with vorticity advection...much of 
the hydrometeors may be lost as virga. Exceptions to this analysis 
may be across southeastern California where the cold core aloft will begin 
to interact with the heated surface allowing better instability late in 
the afternoon...and over high terrain northeast of Phoenix where the 
subcloud dry layer will be naturally reduced by elevation. 
Regardless...with the presence of extensive virga and vertical 
motions throughout the column...gusty outflow winds remain a concern 
throughout the area during the daylight hours. 


Friday night though Saturday afternoon...the cold core aloft pulls 
to the east of the shortwave and becomes better aligned with the pv 
anomaly as the bulk of the entire wave lifts and ejects over 
Arizona. During this transition...renewed vorticity advection and 
ascent will rotate through the trough while lapse rates steepen in 
the presence of residual moisture. A few high resolution models and 
sref probabilities suggest the first wave of upward vertical velocity/showers rotating 
north into central Arizona as early as sunrise Saturday. Surface heating 
under the cold core during the day may very well lead to substantial 
instability (sbcape at or above 250 j/kg and Li/S at or below -2)...especially over 
higher terrain. Conceptually and evidentially through model 
output...probability of precipitation were increased significantly for points east of 
Phoenix Saturday afternoon. 


The aforementioned wave will rapidly weaken and lift into the central 
rockies/plains on Sunday...allowing ridging to quickly rebuild over 
the forecast area. 500 mb heights at or above 582dm will become maximized on 
Monday afternoon yielding highs in the middle/upper 90s for lower 
elevation locations. The next progressive Pacific wave will move 
onshore Tuesday afternoon...though model output and trends keep the 
vast majority of jet energy and moisture from central California 
northward. If anything...the forward speed and arrival into the western 
Continental U.S. May be a bit slower...and have delayed the local onset of 
frontal passage and cooling to beyond Tuesday. The greatest impact of this 
system for Arizona may be gusty winds along and immediately behind 
the frontal boundary as the pressure gradient tightens Tuesday 
afternoon and evening. Southeast California and the lower Colorado 
River valley would likely experience the most prolonged and frequent 
higher gusts. 


While heights aloft will be tempered back into a 570-576dm range for 
the remainder of the week under quasi-zonal flow...feel the net 
effect on temperatures will only be limited to keeping daily 
readings near climatology. Ensemble spread is relatively low in the 
day 5-8 range...so forecast confidence is somewhat higher than 
average. At this time...precipitation chances appear almost 
non-existent for pretty much the entirety of next week.

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


Through 17z Friday...broken clouds at or above 25 thousand mean sea level. Light wind under 9 
knots. From 17z Friday to 23z Friday...thickening and lowering clouds 
becoming broken 10 thousand above ground level by 19z. An increasing chance of showers and 
isolated thunderstorms. Increasing southwest wind 5 to 15 knots... 
but gusty and erratic near thunderstorm downbursts. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
through 16z Friday...broken clouds at or above 25 thousand mean sea level. Light south wind 5 to 10 
knots. From 16z Friday to 23z Friday...thickening and lowering clouds 
becoming broken 12 thousand above ground level by 18z. A slight chance of showers and 
isolated thunderstorms. Increasing south to southwest wind 5 to 15 
knots...however becoming erratic and gusty near thunderstorm downbursts. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Sunday through Thursday... 
westerly flow will bring a warming and drying trend to the region 
through Tuesday. Thereafter...a cooling trend is expected as an area 
of low pressure moves through the western states. The biggest impact 
with this system will be an increase in wind...particularly on 
Wednesday. Low rhs during the midweek period will also present an 
increased fire danger threat.
