NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Flagstaff Arizona 
949 am MST Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Synopsis...scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected this 
afternoon and evening across areas south of a line from Prescott 
to Show Low to Window Rock...with a slight chance elsewhere. From 
Thursday through next Tuesday...expect daily chances for showers 
and thunderstorms for all of northern Arizona. 


&& 


Discussion...shower activity continued overnight and into this 
morning mostly from the Mogollon Rim south. As compared to 
yesterday, low level moisture has increased, with observed dew 
points above 50f generally south of a line from Bagdad to 
Flagstaff to Window Rock. Model data suggests moisture will 
continue to spread northward today. 


This mornings upper air sounding from near Flagstaff shows a 
strong capping inversion in place just above 500 mb. This may 
limit shower and thunderstorm activity there, but further south, 
where the highest low level moisture exists, there are better 
chances for overcoming any convective inhibition. 


In the upper levels, an inverted trough is forecast to cross the 
southwestern portions of the region. In addition to spreading 
moisture northward, this feature may supply some weak lift across 
northern Gila and Yavapai counties this afternoon and evening. This 
trough is also expect to cause about 30 knots of deep layer bulk 
shear in Yavapai County today. Will watch this area closely. 


Thunderstorm steering flow is light today and will generally be 
from the east. The main hazards from today's storms will be small 
hail, localized heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. The 
greatest potential for severe weather will be south of the 
Mogollon Rim in Yavapai and northern Gila counties - where the 
best combination of instability and shear exists. 


The only updates to today's forecast were to increase the probability of precipitation 
south of the Mogollon Rim, mainly in Yavapai County. This mornings 
short term model guidance suggests Yavapai County may experience 
scattered thunderstorm coverage. This makes sense given the above 
analysis. 


&& 


Previous discussion /330 am MST/... forecasts are showing an inverted 
trough moving northwestward through the phx area this evening. 
Precipitation chances have been increased across southern Yavapai and northern 
Gila counties this evening. 


From Thursday through Tuesday...southerly flow in the middle levels 
is expected to continue across northern Arizona. Precipitable water values increase 
sharply on Thursday across the area and then level out through 
Saturday. Thus precipitation chances are above climatology for these days 
and some heavy rainers are possible. Precipitation chances then drop to 
climatology values from Sunday through Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation...for the 18z package...isolated showers this morning 
generally south of a ksez-ksjn line...with primarily VFR expected. 
Scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain to develop during the early afternoon...most 
numerous south of a kprc-ksow-krqe line...with isolated MVFR/IFR 
and gusts up to 25 kts near stronger storms. The chance for 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will continue through the evening hours...especially southeast 
of a kflg-krqe line. Aviation discussion not updated for 
amendments. 


&& 


Fire weather...monsoon moisture and associated thunderstorm 
activity will continue to increase across central and eastern 
Arizona today with northwestern portions of the state expected to 
remain dry. Moisture continues to increase tonight leading to 
greater thunderstorm chances area-wide on Thursday. 
Lightning...locally heavy rain...and small hail will be the main 
hazards. 


Friday through Sunday...a more typical Summer monsoon pattern will 
persist through the weekend with daily chances for showers and 
thunderstorms. 


&& 


Fgz watches/warnings/advisories...none. 


&& 


$$ 


Public...rr/dl 
aviation...jj 
fire weather...mesoscale convective system
