NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
820 PM MST Friday Jan 30 2015 


..updated aviation and public discussions... 


Synopsis... 
areas of showers will continue to be likely over parts of eastern 
and northern Arizona tonight...especially over higher terrain...and 
less likely over southeast California and southwest Arizona. Rain 
shower chances will continue for much of the day Saturday before 
diminishing Saturday night. A return to dry weather and a slow 
warming trend will begin Sunday and continue through next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
the local forecast area is trapped between 3 distinct shortwaves/pv 
anomalies early this evening. The initial wave lifting toward Las 
Vegas has been weakening and filling today...while a more dynamic 
wave was digging through the trough base in the central Baja California 
peninsula. A trailing wave diving through the western periphery of the 
entire trough complex was supporting showers along the Southern 
California coast. Concurrently...deeper moisture advection and a 
meridional jet was shifting the more solid shield of rainfall into 
eastern Arizona...while more isolated/scattered lighter showers were percolating 
within the cyclonic cold core. 


Forecast through the night is now based on recent hrrr 
output...supporting 4km WRF-arw and WRF-nmm members...and current 
radar trends. Consensus appears that showers through central Arizona 
will Ebb through the night in a moist environment...though coverage 
will remain scattered as ascent fields are not as organized (though 
certainly not in a realm of subsidence). Some further refinements 
are likely to address activity coming out of western Pima 
County...though the overall trend argued for a modest reduction over 
most locations. As the aforementioned Southern California wave phases 
with the Baja California wave late tonight...another chance of better organized 
lift should move towards central Arizona. Some question as to how far 
north the rain shield will get as the entire cold core structure 
shifts south...but kept some rather healthy chances advertised 
Saturday morning. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
rest of today through Saturday... 
yet another vorticity maximum rounds the bottom of the upper trough late 
tonight and begins affecting southern Arizona Saturday morning. 
Looks like Southeast Arizona will see most of the precipitation from that 
feature but depict some notable quantitative precipitation forecast spreading well into 
south-central Arizona. Thus we may have another round of widespread 
showers before a downtrend begins in the afternoon. 
Overall...anticipate less dynamical lift tonight and Saturday 
compared to the previous 24 hours...due at least in part to loss of 
upper diffluence/divergence. Accordingly...anticipate less precipitation 
tonight and Saturday than we had in the preceding 24 hours. 
Anticipate nuisance flooding to continue...mainly over higher 
terrain and foothill areas...less over valley floors of the central 
deserts. One caveat is that we could have a little bit more 
instability if clouds thin out enough. NAM has been depicting this 
idea. Thus held on to slight chance of thunderstorms for Saturday 
afternoon. The system begins exiting southward Saturday night as a 
ridge builds in and thus probability of precipitation diminish overnight Saturday. 


Sunday through Friday... 
Sunday looks to be a dry and warmer day. Patchy morning fog is a 
possibility but there may be enough lingering clouds to hinder the 
radiational cooling necessary. Pared back on the areal coverage to 
remove southeast California and the lower Colorado River valley as 
some dry advection moves in there. The ridge slowly builds into the 
west Monday through Thursday for a gradual warming trend...and we 
can expect desert highs to reach back into the low to middle 70s by 
next Wednesday...with the warmer western deserts rising to near 80 
by next Thursday...little change Friday. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa and ksdl... 
short term: moderate to good confidence that widespread rainfall and 
IFR ceilings have ended for the evening. However...scattered showers are still 
developing SW of Phoenix...and may survive into terminals later 
tonight. Visibilities have improved...though mountain obscuration 
will still be a problem. Some areas of MVFR ceilings around the Phoenix 
metropolitan...and may begin to fill in as rain re-enters the area later 
tonight after 06z. 


Sat morning-afternoon: lower confidence that residual moisture will 
allow MVFR br/haze to form Sat morning...and may be more associated 
with incoming new round of rainfall. Somewhat better confidence that 
the next round of showers will impact terminals in the 12z-18z time 
frame...with associated MVFR visibility/ceilings likely. Arrival time may be 
sooner based on recent trends. More scattered activity Sat afternoon...and 
even an isolated ts may be possible...though chances are too remote to 
place in taf package. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
showers should stay south and west of California terminals through 
at least 12z Sat...though residual moisture could form local MVFR 
br/haze (especially at the more favored kipl site). Scattered rain showers and 
potentially brief periods of MVFR ceilings/visibility may be possible later 
Saturday morning as the upper low pivots through the area...though 
confidence is only low to moderate. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Sunday through Thursday... 
drier and significantly warmer weather is expected...as high 
pressure begins building back into the region. High temperatures in 
the lower deserts will start out in the upper 60s on Sunday and 
gradually climb into the upper 70s by Thursday. Winds are expected 
to be light and variable for most of the forecast period. 


&& 


Psr watches/warnings/advisories... 


Arizona...none. 


California...none.
