NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1012 am MST Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
occasional showers and thunderstorms will be common across the 
mountains of southern and eastern Arizona through much of the week. 
There will be some opportunity for showers to affect lower elevation 
desert communities during the middle of the week...however the most 
likely outcome in these areas will only be gusty winds and some 
blowing dust. Afternoon temperatures will remain slightly above 
normal this week before moderating back down towards normal by the 
weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
western Continental U.S. WV imagery this morning shows the broad ridge 
circulation over the Great Basin and carving into portions of the 
Great Plains...with ml/hl moisture streaming up into Southern 
California/Great Basin and somewhat drier air over portions of TX/nm. Back 
closer to home...convection continues over portions of western Pima 
County and northern Sonora this am...along a weak inverted wave 
feature and area of enhanced steering flow tracking along the international 
border. Flow. The strongest storms over the last few hours have 
generally remained south of the border...but have spread a healthy 
ll moisture increase into the Yuma and Imperial Valley areas with 
dewpoints pushing 70f this morning. First update for the grids this 
am was to include isolated thunderstorm mention across southwest Arizona 
pushing into beyond the Colorado River valley and into southeast California for 
the next few hours. Given the excess ll/ml moisture...heavy rainfall 
along with strong gusty winds are expected storm threats with the 
stronger...more organized storms. 


12z radiosonde observations paint an interesting late June picture across the 
southwest...as 850mb dewpoints are pushing 10c...ktwc has a 9c 700mb 
dewpoint...and winds through the 700-500mb steering levels vary from 
20 to 40kts across southern and south-central Arizona. Morning soundings 
around the area tout ml convective available potential energy in the 1000-1500 j/kg range and 
MUCAPES pushing 1500 j/kg...which eventually may mix down around 
1000 j/kg by the afternoon throughout the area. In addition...WV 
loops from across West Texas this morning indicate some sort of ml vorticity 
maximum/mesoscale convective vortex quickly heading west-southwestward into Chihuahua this am. 
Current trajectory of this feature has it sinking further into old 
Mexico today...but with decent easterly steering flow...it could 
clip part of the region later today and certainly stand to help 
initiate and prolong any other convection that does develop across 
the eastern third/higher terrain portion of the state. 


Updates to the short term grids included fine tuning the timing of 
probability of precipitation across the area and elevating chances over the overnight hours 
to include chance mentioning for the lower deserts...including 
Phoenix...for the evening hours. Current thoughts are conditions may 
be similar to those from last evening...with several outflow 
intrusions from peripheral storms to move into the lower deserts to 
help initiate activity later into the evening. 


&& 


Previous discussion /issued at 328 am MST/PDT/... 
operational models continue to place the center of the 594-596dm 
anticyclone over Utah today...the center elongating and the axis 
taking on a northwest to southeast orientation over Nevada and into New Mexico by 
Wednesday afternoon. As the high repositions...a wave or two rotates 
around the southern periphery of the high. These features will help 
to enhance precipitation chances today and Wednesday...albeit still 
slight chances for the lower deserts...and the best chances over the 
higher terrain east of Phoenix. Daytime temperatures through the 
majority of the work week will remain on the above-normal side... 
ranging 105-110f or so with fairly mild overnights. 


The upper level high remains in a northwest-southeast oriented fashion through 
Friday. This configuration will continue to promote a low grade 
monsoon pattern and daily convection dependent on how instability 
modifies over time. Precipitation chances dwindle a bit Thursday 
and Friday as the low level flow is really not conducive to 
importing Richer moisture into the region. So...the best precipitation 
chances will be limited to higher terrain locations during this time 
frame as moisture may begin to mix out at lower elevations. 


However...by Saturday-Sunday...the high begins to shift and the axis 
once again aligning north to south over the intermountain west... 
the high 500-300mb centers stacking/co-locating near The Four 
Corners area. This is a very favorable position of the high for 
southeast flow and good moisture advection. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...ksdl... 
thunderstorm chances later this evening and tonight will be the 
primary aviation concern for central Arizona terminals. In the near 
term...only scattered middle/high clouds and Ely winds switching to westerly by 
middle/late morning will lead to little to no impacts. Enough model 
evidence exits to include a thunderstorms in the vicinity mention late this evening. Much 
like last night...coverage may be quite limited to not directly 
affect a specific terminal location...but possibly approaches and 
departure routes. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
there is a slight chance for aviation impacts in the form of rain showers 
and thunderstorms and rain late in the period (wed morning) with activity moving east 
from Arizona. Coverage may be limited and and storms decaying such 
that only a vcsh introduction was justified. Otherwise...only 
middle/high clouds and light S/southeast surface winds through the afternoon will 
offer good flying conditions in the short term. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Thursday through Monday... 
a low grade monsoon pattern will be in place through the week... 
characterized by near or slightly above normal temperatures...and 
widely scattered afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms that 
move from east to west off the mountains and into the lower deserts 
each day. For Thursday into Saturday the storms will primarily focus 
over the higher terrain with rather low chances of surviving into 
the lower deserts. Sunday into early next week...as humidities rise 
there will be a better chance of thunderstorms and showers moving 
into the central deserts during the overnight hours. Daytime 
humidity values generally will be in the upper teens to middle 20 
percent range through Saturday with humidities rising several 
percent by Monday. Very good overnight recovery is expected each 
night. Winds each day will be light and favor southwesterly 
directions through Friday...becoming southerly by the weekend.
