NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
310 PM MST Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis... 
strong high pressure will hold over The Four Corners...resulting in 
some of our warmest temperatures so far this year. Sufficient 
monsoonal moisture will be around the region to support afternoon and 
evening storm chances through the middle of the coming week...with 
the best focus for storms likely over the higher terrain of south- 
central Arizona. Daytime temperatures will still hold above seasonal 
normals...but should fall back from near-record readings. 


&& 


Discussion... 
our warmest day so far this calendar year continues across the south- 
central Arizona deserts...with several stations around Phoenix and 
Maricopa County reporting readings 112f...or warmer...so far today. 
Phoenix Sky Harbor has already set a new temperature record earlier 
this afternoon...so far at this writing of 116f. Meanwhile while the 
temperature rises our moisture...at least from Phoenix eastward...has 
been dropping as a pocket of drier air works its way in from the 
east. Even before midday...dewpoints across Southeast Arizona were 
dropping into the 30s and 40s. Overnight lows tonight may respond a 
bit more favorably to the slightly drier surface readings across 
portions of south-central Arizona...giving US a chance at not setting 
another record warm minimum Friday am. However...debris clouds and 
storm outflows from activity to our west could keep that potential at 
Bay. Meanwhile...warm overnight lows are likely along the Colorado River 
valley as debris clouds and Gulf moisture surge will help insulate 
temperatures. 


The deepest monsoon moisture surface has transitioned through central 
Arizona through the day and has settled over the western third of Arizona and 
along the Colorado River valley this afternoon. Mostly clear morning skies 
across the southeastern corner of Arizona are now dotted with small 
cumulus...indicating the anticipated low and middle level drying continues 
and stabilizing of the atmosphere continues. Surface dewpoints 
indicate the most favorable monsoon moisture boundary is now across 
western Arizona...where there are still some pockets of 60 degree 
dewpoints. In addition...subtle upper level dynamics in the form of 
an upper jet streak across southern Nevada and central Utah will help focus 
activity in a line along the western fringes of the Phoenix metropolitan 
south towards Gila Bend and towards the Colorado River valley...including 
Blythe and Yuma...for the rest of the evening. 


Still anticipating somewhat cooler temperatures Friday and into 
Saturday as the upper high...currently to our east over nm...weakens 
slightly by a dm or two. In addition...low level moisture values will 
likely be on the increase as some extent of Gulf of California 
moisture will work its way into portions of the Lower Desert 
elevations. A strong outflow boundary from convection near the Baja California 
tip has been observed on surface observation and satellite data and will continue 
to work northward. By Friday am...850mb dewpoints could return to 10c 
to 12c and expect debris clouds from tonight's activity to linger 
longer into the day. This infusion of moisture will support at least 
slight storm chances across much of the forecast area for Friday. 


A better threat for afternoon and evening convection 
is expected on Saturday as the upper high center shifts a little 
further east...allowing a deeper southeasterly flow to develop over 
the region...importing more moisture into the Desert Southwest. 
Another weak shortwave embedded in this flow appears that it will 
move into the region...further enhancing the convective activity as 
MUCAPES are pushed up into the 500-100 j/kg range. 


Sunday through Thursday... 
it appears that a low-middle grade monsoon 
will likely prevail through the extended period as weak southerly 
flow aloft continues to pull moisture into the region...but with the 
upper high center attempting to reposition itself westward back over 
the region...stabilizing the airmass somewhat and perhaps putting a 
bit of a lid on the convective activity.

Climate... 


Record high temperature for the middle of the week.
