NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
140 PM MST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


..updated aviation discussion... 


&& 


Synopsis... 
after several days of cool...and moist conditions...high pressure 
building into the Desert Southwest from the west is expected to 
bring dry conditions...and a gradual warming trend back to the 
region through much of next week. Cooler temperatures are then 
possible by the end of next week as a rather strong...and cold 
weather system begins to drop southward into the western US. 


&& 


Discussion... 
the expected change to a dry...and warmer weather regime can already 
be seen this afternoon as the last in a series of shortwaves begins 
to move off to the east...into eastern Arizona and nm. Behind this 
system...latest satellite imagery and surface observations are now 
showing a distinct clearing trend across southeast California and SW Arizona...and into 
south-central Arizona...which is allowing temperatures at many Lower 
Desert locations across southeast California and SW Arizona to recover into the 60s this 
afternoon. This clearing/drying trend is forecast to continue into 
the evening...with the last few light showers ending over the higher 
terrain of southern Gila County shortly after sunset. 


High pressure building into from the west is forecast to keep dry 
conditions in place...and allow daytime temperatures to rise a bit 
on Friday and Saturday. Some middle and high cloudiness will likely 
return to the region on Friday night and Saturday as another 
weak...but dry shortwave passes over the region. After highs in the 
middle to upper 60s on Saturday...70s are expected to return to southeast 
California...and to the rest of our Lower Desert locations on Monday as 
strong high pressure ridging becomes established along the West 
Coast. Relatively high 500mb heights (aoa 570dm) and a dry 
northwesterly flow will then allow Lower Desert highs to rise into 
the low to middle 70s from Tuesday into Thursday under mostly clear 
skies. As far as the forecast for end of next week is 
concerned...although the latest Euro...Gem...and operational GFS 
have now backed off somewhat on the amplitude of a strong...and cold 
long-wave trough that is forecast to dig southward into the western 
US...a cooling trend is still expected to begin by next 
Friday...which would bring our temperatures down closer to seasonal 
normals...although the latest 13km parallel GFS continues to hold on 
to a much colder solution. 


&& 


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


Breaks in ceilings are starting to show early this afternoon as the 
departing trough continues eastward...scattered to broken decks at ksdl and 
kphx 4500ft will improve even more by 00z Friday. Winds remain light 
and mostly diurnal...around 7-8 kts expected through the evening 
hours. Rain chances will diminish this afternoon and should remain 
clear through the next 24 to 48 hours. Another round of middle and high 
clouds will return Friday afternoon with another shortwave pushing 
through. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona...including kipl and 
kblh... 
mostly clear skies are now in place and will dominate through 18z 
Friday before middle and high clouds build back in. Rain chances 
diminish today and should remain dry through the next 24 to 48 
hours. Mostly diurnal wind patterns will be in place with a favor 
from the northerly direction as a shortwave trough moves through 
Friday. 


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.
