NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
342 PM MST Sat Feb 28 2015 


..prolonged wet winter weather event across the Desert Southwest 
Sunday through late Monday... 


&& 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will continue a slow approach of the forecast 
area...bringing moisture into the region along with increasing 
chances of showers Sunday and Monday. Periods of heavy rain are 
possible at times especially Sunday night through Monday afternoon. 
Cooler temperatures will also accompany this storm with below normal 
readings expected Monday through late week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
afternoon infrared/WV imagery loops show the upper low continuing to 
travel southward through California...with the circulation center now south 
of the San Francisco Bay area. Downstream from the main upper 
low...unsettled westerly middle and upper jet flow spans from the California 
coast and across much of the southern Continental U.S.. spotty light rain 
shower coverage continues across the northern fringe of Maricopa 
County this afternoon. Additional area of light rain showers have 
begun to percolate well east of the Phoenix metropolitan...along the us60 
corridor. In addition...strong surface winds continue across much of 
the region...especially the southeast California forecast zones...with many 
sites reporting gusts into the 30 knots/middle 30 miles per hour range. Strong winds 
will eventually taper back in speeds later into the evening while 
still remaining slightly elevated over area ridgetops. Spotty shower 
coverage will also continue...especially for the foothill/high 
terrain locales North/East of Phoenix with additional accumulations 
on the order of a couple hundredths to possible 0.10" or so. Pop 
forecasts for the rest of the afternoon keep isolated shower mention 
over portions of the south-central Arizona deserts...with increasing 
percentages and coverage becoming scattered the further 
north/northeast of Phoenix you go. 


In general...very little has changed with the overall narrative of 
sensible weather impacts associated with this system for Sunday and 
the early work week. However...forecast solutions have once again 
shifted the significant impact windows out by another 6-hours or so. 
The translates to the windows with moderate to heavy rainfall 
concerns over southeast California later into the day Sunday...more likely 
after 18z. In addition...the window for moderate to heavy rainfall 
over the south-central Arizona deserts/foothills has shifted primarily to 
Monday. Only slight adjustments were worked into the quantitative precipitation forecast 
grids...with upward nudges of storm total values pushing 2 inches 
possibly over the far northeast Maricopa County corner and 1.5 inch 
values for Wickenburg and northwest Maricopa County. Around 1 inch 
storm total holds across the Phoenix metropolitan with 0.60 to 0.90 or so 
readings possible out along the lower Colorado River valley and southeast 
California. 


The upper low will continue to dig down to the socal coast through 
the evening...stalling out west of San Diego/la for much of the day 
Sunday. Meanwhile...decent band of elevated subtropic moisture will 
be drawn northward towards the upper low and over the Baja California 
peninsula. Some discrepancy lingers between forecast values this 
afternoon and observed tpw precipitable water Sat readings with the models 
over-doing precipitable water forecasts by about a tenth of an inch at this time. 
However...quantitative precipitation forecast forecast values remain in fairly good agreement on 
timing and amounts between all the models. Main frontal feature off 
the parent low and associated precipitation band will slowly work 
through socal Sunday...and into southeast California by the afternoon. The 
upper low will begin to transition eastward overnight Sunday into 
Monday...as a secondary kicker system quickly drops out of the Pacific 
northwest. Main precipitation frontal band...with moderate to at times heavy 
rainfall...will transition from portions of the Colorado River valley and 
western Arizona later Sunday into south-central Arizona by Monday morning. 


Rain will transition from west to east during the Monday...with even 
the threat for some embedded thunderstorm develop later Monday with 
the movement of the upper low cold core across Arizona. Think the 
threat for thunder should wrap fairly early Monday evening...but did 
expand slight chance thunder mention for a few extra hours given the 
latest round of timing adjustments. 


The secondary kicker system quickly skirts down the West Coast and 
drops over Baja California for Tuesday...now presenting a potentially drier 
Tuesday over the southwest deserts. Given the short-term struggles 
in the model solutions...left the forecast probability of precipitation for Tuesday and 
Wednesday mainly untouched. They result in slight shower chances 
linger over much of the south-central Arizona deserts/higher terrain 
Tuesday and drier conditions beginning Wednesday. Unsettled and 
drier northwest flow filters into the area for the remainder of the 
work week...with another shortwave/cutoff feature skirting the area 
late Thursday/Friday. This may help to keep temperatures on the cool 
side...but looks to keep our area dry and free from any additional 
precipitation activity. Temperatures will reach their lowest values on 
Monday and will slowly rebound back into the middle 70s/lower 80s by 
late next week. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa and ksdl... 
low pressure system centered near S.F. Bay area will continue to 
spread lower level moisture over the area tonight and Sunday for 
scattered-broken decks with bases at fl050-070 decreasing to fl040-060 after 
06z. Only spotty light showers...mainly foothills/higher terrain 
with higher mountains obscured...through tonight with somewhat more 
areal coverage of light showers developing Sunday. Surface winds 
will favor southwest into the evening before trending southeast 
overnight. Anticipate southerly component to prevail through the day 
Sunday with gusts of 20-25 kts in the afternoon. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
southwest winds gusting 25-30 knots will slowly decrease early this 
evening. Much lighter surface winds during the day Sunday. 
Significant southwest and west winds above the surface will continue 
overnight. Scattered...locally broken...cloud bases fl060-080 will decrease 
this evening before more widespread ceilings develop during the 
daytime hours along with scattered showers. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Monday through Friday... 
cool and wet conditions will be present on Monday and likely into 
Tuesday with the best chances for widespread rains on Monday. There 
will be a chance of a few thunderstorms on Monday. Humidities will 
be well above typical values through Tuesday before minimum values 
fall back into the teens starting Thursday afternoon. Periods of 
breezy southwesterly winds can be expected on Monday and again on 
Wednesday. High temperatures across the deserts will only reach into 
the 60s through Wednesday. High pressure bringing warmer and drier 
weather should move in starting later Wednesday and should persist 
through the end of the week.
