NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
131 PM MST Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
near record temperatures are once again possible across portions of 
the lower deserts through late afternoon. A dry weather system will 
move into the region from the Great Basin late Wednesday through 
Friday...ushering in cooler temperatures and increasing winds. Dry 
conditions will remain through the weekend with continued above 
normal temperatures with daytime highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. 


&& 


Discussion... 
scattered showers are beginning to develop across eastern Arizona 
this afternoon in an area of anomalously high precipitable water 
/95th percentile for the end of March/...and in an area of weak 
isentropic ascent associated with a weak trough over central Sonora. Storms 
are primarily located along the highest peaks although a few isolated 
showers appear to be drifting toward extreme eastern Gila County. 
Meanwhile across the lower deserts of south- central Arizona and 
southeast California...skies are mostly clear and temperatures are well into 
the lower 90s as of 20z. 


Isolated showers will dissipate quickly this evening with the loss of 
daytime heating and as subsidence behind the departing trough takes 
hold over eastern Arizona. In the wake of this upper trough...drier 
air will begin to move into the area on Wednesday...with a 
reinforcing shot of drier air Thursday and Friday courtesy of another 
shortwave trough moving through the Great Basin. The combination of 
dry air and breezy winds will result in elevated fire weather 
conditions on Thursday...although widespread critical thresholds 
should not be realized. Winds will be strongest down the lower 
Colorado River valley on Thursday although latest hi-res WRF models 
and other hi-res datasets suggest wind speeds will remain below Wind 
Advisory criteria. The trough will also serve to cool down 
temperatures ever so slightly...bringing them more into line with 
climatological normals for early April. Late week temperatures will 
fall into the middle/upper 80s by Thursday/Friday...with a rebound into 
the lower 90s expected through the weekend. 


After the late week shortwave clears the region...broad trough 
heights/southwesterly flow remain over much of the western Continental U.S. 
Through early next week. Operational GFS/European model (ecmwf) solutions advertise 
a large shortwave moving off the Pacific late Sunday/early 
Monday...however their ensemble (gefs/naefs/ecens) counterparts do 
little to inspire confidence in the evolution of that system. 
Broadbrush forecast will hold through the weekend and into early 
next week of continued dry conditions and slightly above-climatology 
temperatures.

A weak weather disturbance will move across northern Arizona today... 
bringing gusty afternoon/evening southwest to west winds across the 
region. Strongest winds are expected late afternoon to early 
evening...when gusts up to 24 kts are possible. Otherwise expect 
only occasional periods of high cloudiness.

Fire weather... 


..gusty northwest winds and very low humidity area-wide Thursday 
afternoon for marginal fire weather conditions... 


Thursday through Monday... 


A series of weather disturbances will move across the western states 
mainly north of Arizona for enhanced afternoon breezes each day. However 
one stronger disturbance will move farther south across northern Arizona 
Thursday generating gusty north to northwest winds 15 to 25 miles per hour with 
gusts to 30 miles per hour. A significantly drier airmass from the north will 
also sweep across the region. Marginal fire weather conditions are 
expected Thursday especially along the lower Colorado River valley as 
well as the ridgetops of southern Gila County. Otherwise...breezy 
conditions are forecast each afternoon with minimum relative 
humidities in the 5 to 10 percent range. Overnight recovery should be 
fair...except for the breezy/windy period Thursday night. Afternoon 
temperatures will remain 8 to 10 degrees above normal.
