Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 9:35 am MST on May 29, 2015


... High pollution advisory for Maricopa County including the greater
Phoenix area and Pinal County through Saturday...

The Arizona department of environmental quality in Phoenix has
extended an ozone high pollution advisory for the greater Phoenix
area through Saturday. The Pinal County department of air quality
has extended an ozone high pollution advisory for Pinal County
including Apache Junction... Casa Grande... Coolidge... and Florence
through Saturday.

This means that forecast weather conditions combined with existing
ozone levels are expected to result in local maximum 8-hour ozone
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Ozone is an air contaminant which can cause breathing difficulties
for children as well as persons with respiratory problems. A decrease
in physical activity is recommended.

If it is a regularly scheduled work day... you are urged to car pool...
telecommute... or use mass transit.

The use of gasoline-powered equipment should be reduced or done late
in the day.

For details on this high pollution advisory for Maricopa County...

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
815 PM MST Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
hot and dry weather will persist over southeast California and 
southern Arizona this weekend with afternoon highs ranging from 
around 102 to 108 degrees for lower elevation population centers. 
Temperatures will cool somewhat heading into the middle of next 
week...coming closer to the seasonal normals. 


&& 


Discussion... 
moderate amplitude longwave ridging has built over the southwestern Continental U.S. 
During the past 24 hours with 00z regional sounding data sampling 2 
to 3dm 500 mb height rises. In addition...thermal structure of the 800 mb-700 mb 
layer has increased 1f-2f with deep mixing through 600mb yielding 
the warmest day of the year so far. All early 00z model guidance 
still shows a continuation of this trend suggesting lower elevation 
high temperatures in a 102f-106f range tomorrow. In the short term...minor 
adjustments to hourly temperatures were made as readings were 
falling slower than forecast given the warm afternoon. 
Otherwise...few other changes were necessary in the evening update. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
/235 PM MST Friday may 29 2015/ 
the big story for the next several days is the inevitable return of the 
triple digits across the majority of the forecast area. Excellent 
model agreement noted among today's 00z deterministic models and 
probabilistic guidance...with all signs pointing to strengthening 
upper ridging and steadily increasing 925-700mb temperatures. This 
will result in the warmest temperatures of the year /so far/ through 
the weekend...with highs peaking on Sunday in the 105-108 range. 
Blended bias corrected guidance all within a degree or two of the 
inherited forecast and no significant changes appear necessary with 
this morning's forecast. While record heat is not forecast across the 
lower deserts...Phoenix will certainly come close on Sunday /see 
climate section below/. 


Also Worth noting this weekend...deterministic models indicate a 
subtle increase in bl moisture /6-7 g/kg bl mixing ratios/ across 
eastern Arizona during the day Sunday. GFS/NAM indicating at least a 
few hundred j/kg of MLCAPE across the higher terrain locations along 
the Arizona/nm border and some of the extended hi-res guidance is hinting 
at a few showers/thunderstorms well east of Phoenix Sunday afternoon. Going 
to insert climatology-like probability of precipitation across southern Gila County although at 
this point the areal coverage of any showers/storms appears quite 
low. This moisture creep will be very short lived as the ridge axis 
shifts eastward on Monday...effectively putting an end to any precipitation 
chances through the end of next week. 


As the ridge moves east...longwave troughing is expected to develop 
across the western Continental U.S. Next week as a rather deep low moves 
through the Pacific northwest. Not expecting any direct impacts from this low 
but it will serve to knock temperatures back a few degrees by the 
middle/end of the week. Highs /while still warm compared to what 
we've seen lately/...will be on par with climatological normals for 
early June. Consensus guidance suggests widespread middle/upper 90s from 
Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl...and 
southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and 
kblh... 


No major aviation impacts through Saturday night as a near 
persistence forecast will hold. Only brief periods of high cirrus 
and afternoon high based cumulus over the mountains of northern and 
eastern Arizona will be experienced. Winds shift timing should be 
similar to the past couple days...with once again extended periods 
of light and variable winds. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Monday through Friday... 
a trough of low pressure slowly moves through the western states 
next week leading to a gradual cooling trend and occasional enhanced 
breeziness...favoring southwesterly directions. Minimum humidities 
will generally remain below 10 percent on the lower elevations and 
below 20 percent on the higher terrain. Overnight recovery will be 
fair.

Yuma through the weekend...
