NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1035 am MST Tuesday Jan 27 2015 




Synopsis... 
a low pressure system exiting the region will bring a few lingering 
showers to high terrain areas mainly before noon. High pressure will 
briefly take over allowing for a return to warmer weather through 
Thursday. Another low pressure system will bring additional moisture 
and renewed higher chances for precipitation Thursday night through 
possibly Saturday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
last round of showers for today now moving through far northeast 
Maricopa County and southern Gila County. However...some isolated 
very weak echoes have redeveloped over central Pima County. With the 
main upper trough axis continuing to move northward...it will be 
harder for those Pima County showers to sustain themselves and thus 
will hold off on introducing probability of precipitation for the afternoon over Pinal/NE 
Maricopa counties...just some lingering slight chances over southern 
Gila. Satellite imagery shows lingering fog/stratus over portions of 
southeast California...mainly east over Riverside County west of 
Blythe where we have no surface observation. This should break up by 19z. 
Next system to affect our area will be approaching from fairly low 
latitudes as this one has but will stall out over the southwest and 
weaken before being pushed back south on Sunday. Window of precipitation 
opportunity with this next system looks to be Thursday night through 
Saturday with the main emphasis being late Thursday night through 
Friday. More later. 


&& 


Previous discussion issued 305 am MST/205 am PST... 
the upper low center continues to move northward along the 
California coastline with a trailing trough axis moving northward 
through central Arizona and Southeast Arizona. Current water vapor 
imagery shows drier air working into Arizona from the south and this 
will eventually allow for some gradual clearing skies today and the 
end of any rain chances by early afternoon. Low level moisture will 
stay in place at least into Wednesday...but any low clouds today 
should clear out by early tonight. 


Wednesday looks to be the most pleasant weather day of the week as 
we see a return to warmer temperatures and mostly clear skies under 
ridging aloft. However...the next weather system moving across the 
Pacific west of Baja California will start to stream in moisture in the middle and 
upper levels by late Wednesday and especially by early Thursday. 
This will lead to a fairly thick cloud deck developing for Thursday 
and a few degree decrease in high temperatures...but warmer 
overnight lows for Wednesday night and Thursday night. 


Models have been fairly consistent the last day or so with this next 
system bringing in the deepest moisture by middle day Thursday with the 
open wave nearing the southwestern United States. Dynamics will not 
be very impressive overall due to weakening jet support...but the 
trough does deepen by Thursday night as it becomes more neutrally 
tilted. The main forcing to support precipitation will be a broad 
isentropic upglide setup which will mostly reside across the eastern 
half of Arizona starting Thursday afternoon and likely lasting 
through Friday night. This trough should tap into some sub-tropical 
moisture over the next couple days with some of that moisture making 
its way into our area for Thursday night and Friday. Precipitable 
water values are expected to reach near one inch during that time. 


Model quantitative precipitation forecast amounts from Phoenix eastward seem somewhat high given the 
weak dynamics...but with decent rain chances over roughly a 36 hour 
period...can/T rule out areas receiving a storm total of a half to 
one inch. Have increased probability of precipitation for Thursday evening into the likely 
category to the east of Phoenix as both the GFS and European suggest 
a slightly earlier onset. Am definitely not anticipating a 
persistent rain over the 36 hour period...but more along the lines 
of initial scattered showers early Thursday night with best chances 
of steady rain during the daytime hours on Friday. This steady rain 
will keep temperatures from rising much at all on Friday 
across south-central Arizona and would not be surprised if highs 
struggle to break 60 degrees in some areas. For now...areas across 
far southwest Arizona and southeast California should be spared from 
seeing much if any rainfall at all and thus will see temperatures 
more toward normal. 


Confidence starts to diminish heading into the weekend as models 
differ somewhat on when to shift the upper low to the southeast and 
how quickly dry air slides in from the northwest. The general 
consensus shows the low center shifting into northern Mexico by 
Saturday afternoon with a ridge axis and drier air entering 
northwest Arizona from the Great Basin. Should see some lingering 
rain chances on Saturday...but if this solution holds true...most 
rain will move out of our area by late evening Saturday. Sunday 
looks to be a dry day with temperatures rising back to near normal 
as an upper level ridge moves in across the state. With the upper 
ridge taking over for early next week...will likely see continued 
dry conditions and high temperatures back into the 70s.

Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa and ksdl... 
copious amounts of low level moisture will keep ceilings between 6-7 
thousand above ground level through 20-21z. Further afternoon heating will break ceilings to scattered 
6-7 thousand above ground level after 21z. Light and variable wind at least through 03z Wednesday. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
through 20z Tuesday...scattered to broken between 3-5 thousand above ground level. Further afternoon heating 
will break ceilings to scattered 5-6 thousand above ground level after 21z. Light and vrb wind at 
least through 03z Wednesday. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Thursday through Monday... 
above normal temperatures and relatively moist conditions will 
prevail Thursday as a ridge predominates across Mexico. Another low 
pressure system will result in increasing rain chances and 
cooler temperatures Thursday night through Saturday. A warming and 
drying trend is expected Sunday/Monday as a ridge builds across 
California.
