NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
900 PM MST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Update... updated aviation section. 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain the dominant weather feature over the 
southwestern United States this week. This will result in a 
prolonged period of sunny skies...much above normal 
temperatures...relatively light winds...and low humidity values. 


&& 


Discussion... another very mild evening for this time of year 
across the region...as very strong ridging aloft allowed highs 
across the lower deserts to rise well up into the 80s. Phoenix Sky 
Harbor reached 86...which broke the previous record by 2 degrees. 
Temperatures at this hour are actually running 1-3 degrees warmer 
than what we saw at this time yesterday. Given these warmer 
temperatures and the lows we saw last night...decided to raise our 
overnight lows tonight a bit. Outside of these warmer 
lows...inherited forecasts/trends are holding up well...and no other 
updates are planned. 


&& 


Previous discussion... quasi-blocked high amplitude flow remains 
entrenched across the western hemisphere with ridging extending along 
the West Coast of North America while deep troughing envelopes eastern 
Continental U.S.. unusually high heights aloft (h5 heights 2-3 normalized 
Standard deviations above average) and 12z ktwc sounding sampled 800 mb 
and 700 mb temperatures above the 90th percentile (approaching or 
slightly exceeding daily records) have resulted in near to above 
record highs this afternoon. 
This general pattern configuration will persist through the 
remainder of the week until more robust Pacific shortwave energy 
dampens the ridge axis...and negative eastern Continental U.S. Height anomalies 
translate into the North Pacific. 


Throughout the forecast area...little change in the thermodynamic 
profile will occur over the next 84 hours with a near persistence 
forecast most applicable. With 1000-850mb thicknesses regularly 
touching 140dm and other height and thermal profiles continuing to 
fall in the 2-3 normalized Standard deviations above normal 
range...afternoon highs flirting with record territory will be 
typical. (Please reference the climate section below for forecast 
and record details). Model spread on all accounts is quite small 
yielding excellent forecast confidence and pointing towards Friday 
as the warmest day of the week. 


The swift passage of the southern end of a dry Pacific northwest 
shortwave will support a degree or two of cooling Saturday and 
Sunday with the combination of slightly lower ul heights and some 
high level cloudiness. Ridging will quickly rebound early next week 
and the warmth and above-normal temperatures return. However one 
potential area of interest...a sheared portion of this Pacific northwest trough 
may form a cutoff low off the San Diego coast Sunday...deepening 
south to offshore southern Baja California Monday near the northern edges of 
warm El Nino waters. While there is some ensemble spread in the 
orientation of these features...this area offshore could present 
almost like the southern branch of a Rex block with lower 
heights/general weakness persisting. 


Pattern predictability drops off and ensemble spread increases 
towards the latter end of the extended period as some tropical 
Pacific convection and jet streaking take advantage of those 
persistent low height anomalies over the east Pacific/Baja California peninsula. 
As previous shifts noted...this atmospheric set-up has occurred in 
previous El Nino years /cutoff lows in this El Nino region have spun 
up incredibly fast due to the phasing of a subtropical jetstream/ 
resulting in eventual precipitation activity downstream over the southwest 
deserts. Deterministic model runs are broadly agreeing on the idea 
of stronger and deeper Pacific trough sweeping into southern West 
Coast towards the latter part of next week and modtrend guidance 
from the GFS points to some persistent weakening of 500mb heights 
over the central Pacific upstream by Thursday-Friday next week. We are just 
outside the window of getting ivt/Arkansas guidance but broad model 
agreement on the upper level pattern never hurts to see this far out. 


&& 


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


High pressure aloft...and a very dry airmass...to keep skies clear 
at all of the taf sites through the next 24 hours...and beyond. 
Weakening surface pressure gradients to keep winds for the most part on 
the light side...8 kts or less...and allow them to follow typical 
diurnal trends...with the exception of a a period of slightly 
stronger easterly breezes at kphx during the late morning/early 
afternoon period on Wednesday. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Thursday through Monday... 
an unseasonably strong high pressure ridge will remain in place over 
the western states this week and into early next week. This will 
lead to a persistent period of well above normals high 
temperatures...with readings peaking 10 to 15 degrees above seasonal 
normals. Many lower elevation and desert sites will see a stretch of 
days with high temperatures warming past the 80 degree mark. Rh's 
will also remain on the drier and below normal side during the week 
with min values typically in the low to middle teens. 


Light winds are expected Thursday through Saturday...and will 
generally follow typical drainage/slope driven headings with light 
speeds. Increased northerly breezes are expected over the western 
deserts...especially along the lower Colorado River valley...Sunday 
into Monday. Sunny days and clear nights will be replaced by 
variable high cloudiness starting Friday and continuing through the 
weekend. 


&& 


Climate... 




Afternoon satellite imagery indicates mostly clear to scattered 
skies over the region. Expect mostly clear skies with a few 
scattered...mostly high clouds in all areas. In the Phoenix 
area...winds will be light or light and variable and follow normal 
diurnal swings. However...at kblh occasional northerly afternoon 
wind gusts up to 25 knots are expected. Otherwise...southeast 
California locales can expect northerly winds this afternoon and 
lighter westerly winds tonight. Visibilities will remain good 
throughout the period.
