NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
300 am MST Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
warmer temperatures are expected today and Friday. However 
considerable high clouds and breezy conditions Friday...will signal 
the approach of a strong cold front for Saturday morning. The cold 
front Saturday will produce very windy conditions across the 
region...along with areas of blowing dust and sand. A chance of 
showers and possibly a thunderstorm will develop mainly over 
portions of south central Arizona near Phoenix. Much cooler 
temperatures are also expected Saturday. Dry weather...with a slow 
warming trend will develop Sunday through the middle of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
note: a strong cold front will produce high winds in southeast California 
late Friday night/Saturday morning...and very windy conditions 
elsewhere in southwest and south central Arizona Saturday morning. 


Today and Friday... 
a shortwave ridge today will produce nearly cloudless skies and 
slightly above normal afternoon temperatures...I.E. Lower 90s on the 
deserts. On Friday...considerable high clouds...slightly warmer 
temperatures...and afternoon breezes will develop. High clouds and 
breezes will signal the approach of a strong Pacific trough/cold front 
for Saturday. 


Saturday... 
models continue to move a potent Spring storm into Arizona Saturday. 
We prefer the GFS solution for several reasons. One...the wave 
pattern over the Pacific is progressive. Two...a strong split flow 
aloft develops just off the West Coast limiting an overly deep 
digging trough. Three...the central and eastern U.S. Is free from any 
blocking systems downstream. 


The magnitude of the GFS 12 hour 500 mb height falls...nearly 200 
meters over Joshua Tree north.P. Zone 30 at 12z Sat...and another 160 
meters near Prescott just before 18z indicate significant mass field 
changes... greatest impact over our forecast area will 
be wind. Gusts between 35 and 50 miles per hour are likely in southeast California late 
Friday night/early Saturday morning with the cold front. Gusty winds 
in the 30 to 45 miles per hour range will spread toward Phoenix by late 
Saturday morning/early afternoon. Areas of blowing dust and sand are 
expected. 


Strong vertical motion/upper level storm dynamics will mostly be 
confined to areas skirting the far northern portions of our 
forecast area...I.E. The northern portions of La Paz...northern 
Maricopa...and northern Gila counties. These areas could see a 
threat of showers and possible thunderstorm. The best chance of 
showers however will develop over southern Gila County. 


This is a fast moving trough storm most storm support forecast to move 
into northwest New Mexico by early Saturday evening. 


Sunday and Monday... 
dry northwest flow aloft with nearly cloudless skies...lighter 
wind...and slowly warming afternoon temperatures are expected this 
period. 


Tuesday through Friday... 
dry weather with above normal temperatures are forecast. The only 
caveat will be gusty north winds over the forecast area...especially 
down the Colorado River valley Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl... 
typical easterly diurnal winds this morning to become westerly this 
afternoon and early evening...then revert back to easterly late 
tonight. Wind speeds to remain mainly at or below 8 kts through the taf 
period. Aside from some high cloudiness from time-to-time...skies to 
remain mostly clear. No aviation concerns. 


Southeast California/southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
current light winds this morning to become southerly to 
southwesterly from this afternoon Onward into tonight with speeds 
mainly in the 7-12 knot range. Aside from a few high clouds skies 
should be clear. No aviation concerns. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Saturday through Wednesday... 
rather strong...and cold upper low (for this time of year) to 
produce strong and gusty winds...and bring much cooler temperatures 
to the region on Saturday. Although fire danger levels will be 
elevated by these strong winds...increasing moisture levels are 
expected to keep fire danger levels below critical thresholds at 
most locations. Much lighter winds are then expected from Sunday 
Onward...with temperatures slowly recovering back toward normal 
values. Overnight humidity recoveries will gradually deteriorate as 
the week progresses. 


&& 


Psr watches/warnings/advisories... 


Arizona...Fire Weather Watch from Friday afternoon through Friday evening 
azz020-025.
