NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Flagstaff Arizona 
1015 am MST Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis...scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue over 
the next several days...with the best chances of storms over the 
eastern half of the state. Drier conditions may return to northern 
Arizona early next week. 


&& 


Discussion...deep moisture will continue to stream north and east 
over eastern Arizona. However...low to middle-level lapse rates are 
expected to remain moist adiabatic over eastern Arizona. Given 
the thermal profile...any thunderstorms that develop might not get 
too tall. However...given the deep moisture in place (upstream 12z 
psr/twc sounding with precipitable waters  ~ 1.5 inches)...thunderstorms could be 
efficient heavy rainfall producers with flash flooding being the 
primary threat mainly east of a line from Prescott to Flagstaff to 
Page. 


West of the aforementioned line...low/mid level lapse rates are 
forecast to remain in the 7-8 c/km range. The 0-6 km bulk shear is 
also forecast to increase to around 35 knots due to better proximity 
of the upper trough over the Pacific northwest. The better 
cape/shear could produced better organized convection. 
However...the much lower moisture should limit the areal coverage of 
afternoon convection. The main threat west of a line from Prescott 
to Flagstaff to Page is expected to be the potential for small 
hail and high winds. 


Updated the forecast to increase probability of precipitation over eastern Arizona. Will 
continue to monitor the forecast as convection develops later this 
afternoon. The updated products have been sent. 




&& 


Previous discussion /359 am MST/... showers and thunderstorms are 
forecast to be most focused over the eastern half of the state for 
the next couple days...with lower storm chances continuing 
elsewhere. For today...increased speed shear and instability may 
lead to more numerous stronger convection than the last few days. 
As we enter the weekend...flow will turn west-southwesterly as low 
pressure shifts across the Great Basin. This should lead to a 
downturn in activity from late Saturday into early early next 
week. European model (ecmwf) keeps moisture much more limited through the extended 
forecast while the GFS is more favorable to returning storm 
chances next week. Will continue to observe model forecast trends 
over the coming days. 


&& 


Aviation...for the 18z package...expect scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain across 
northern Arizona through sunset. Greatest aviation concerns will be local 
IFR conditions in stronger storms...along with isolated hail. Breezy 
southerly winds today at 10-20 kts gusting near 30 kts across 
western Arizona. 


Aviation discussion not updated for taf amendments. 


&& 


Fgz watches/warnings/advisories...none.
