NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
256 am MST Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
another warm afternoon expected today before a Pacific storm moves 
into the area Friday. The Pacific low will spread increasing moisture 
and clouds into the area...supporting slight chances for showers from 
the Colorado River east across south central Arizona and into the 
higher terrain. Daytime temperatures for Friday and Saturday will 
fall to more seasonal values while the storm and clouds clear to the 
east. Temperatures quickly warm back into the 90s for next week with 
mostly sunny skies. 


&& 


Discussion... 
under clear skies...temperatures this morning over the forecast area 
have been slower to cool compared to yesterday...with middle 60s to low 
70s in the latest 2am observation. Today's temperature forecast near Carbon 
copy of wednesday's...with low to middle 90s across the deserts and 80s 
for the foothill/higher terrain locales. High level clouds will 
gradually increase from the west through the day...ahead of a east 
Pacific low moving onshore. 


Pacific low pressure will move into so-cal early Friday...spreading 
middle and high level moisture from the subtropical Pacific ahead of it. 
First area of upper low difluence and 400-200mb Omega move into 
western Arizona by Friday afternoon...so slight chance probability of precipitation were 
expanded to the lower Colorado River valley. Low end slight chances 
(mostly 10 percent) then expand into the south-central deserts for 
late Friday and Saturday as the low slowly travels through the area. 
Additional vorticity energy on the back of the low prognosticated to sweep 
through the area Saturday...providing some additional lift to 
persist slight chances before the system exits to the east overnight 
Saturday/early Sunday. Mostly cloudy to overcast skies are expected 
Friday with a very slight cool down in temperatures...mostly into the 
80s for the Lower Desert elevations. 


Models have been generally been consistent with the overall moisture 
profile for this system...generating nearly saturated/saturated middle- 
level sounding profiles with very dry sub-cloud layers and inverted 
v traces. While chances for light shower and isolated thunder 
activity continue look decent with this system...wetting or even 
measurable rains are not expected. The warm and dry sub-cloud layers 
lend themselves more towards high-based development with the 
potential for gusty winds and outflows. That being said...consistency 
in the model quantitative precipitation forecast placement and amounts has varied even in recent 
forecast runs. Also considering past under-performances this Spring 
with other east Pacific systems moving into the southwest...broad 
brush slight chances with near zero quantitative precipitation forecast values from Friday midday 
through Saturday midday were adjusted into the pop grids. 


Dry westerly flow transitions into the area Sunday...quickly warming 
temperatures back into the 90s for early next week. Broad area of 
Pacific troughing still prognosticated to sweep into the west late Monday 
into Tuesday...although latest model runs vary in their depth and 
strength as it moves in from the northeast Pacific. The set-up still 
looks promising for a return to cooler (and more seasonal) 
temperatures by middle part of next week...but any chances for rain 
look pretty remote. Maintained some influence of climatology in the 
pop grids given the presence of troughing...but unless the models 
expand the southern extent of the system...even those single digit 
values may be overdone. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl... 
weak weather disturbance passing into New Mexico tonight. Surface 
winds will be light overnight. However...models depict west winds in 
the low levels above the surface increasing to 20-25 kts around 2000 
feet mean sea level between 06-07z and dissipating by 09z. The increase in west 
winds probably not quite enough to insert low level wind shear in the Phoenix area 
tafs but the potential should be noted. Otherwise...surface winds 
become southwest and west in the afternoon though gusts should 
remain well below 20 kts. Some increasing cirrus Thursday afternoon 
ahead of an approaching upper low. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
southwest and west surface winds will weaken overnight though a 
southerly component will prevail in the winds above the surface. 
South and southeast surface winds will develop by midday Thursday 
with gusts to 20 knots. Cirrus will be on the increase toward 
morning ahead of an approaching upper low. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Saturday through Wednesday... 
dry westerly flow aloft with warmer afternoon temperatures are 
expected. However by Wednesday a strong Pacific storm is forecast to 
move into the western states...resulting in very strong southwest 
winds and a chance of showers. Otherwise...minimum humidities Sat 
through Tuesday should remain in the 10 to 15 percent range...increasing 
Wednesday.
