NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
855 PM MST Sat Apr 30 2016 


Synopsis... 
a low pressure system will move into the region from the north 
tonight into Sunday. This will result in a chance of afternoon and 
evening showers and thunderstorms...particularly over the mountains 
of eastern Arizona Sunday. Clearing is expected Sunday night...with 
dry and much warmer weather developing next week. Hot weather is 
expected next week with desert temperatures warming into the middle to 
upper 90s. There are hints of another Pacific weather system moving 
into the region by late next week or next weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms were prevalent this 
afternoon across portions of the Arizona lower deserts...including the 
Phoenix area. The storms developed in an area characterized by very 
strong ascent ahead of tight vorticity maximum across the western Arizona deserts. 
Latest WV imagery and streamline analysis shows the vorticity shearing out 
as it translates eastward across central Arizona. The loss of larger 
scale ascent and diabatic heating has consequently resulted in a 
rapid decrease in instability and coverage of showers and storms this 
evening. Latest hi-res guidance including the hrrr continue to show 
the existing activity...mainly concentrated east of the Phoenix area 
dissipating overnight. Current forecast handles this well...though 
some adjustments were made to the short-term temperatures to account 
for the rain-cooled air early this evening. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
at 2 PM a vigorous upper level low pressure system was moving into 
Arizona...with the low center pushing eastward and into west central 
Arizona. Best area of positive vorticity advection/difluence and q-convergence was focused across 
west-central and south-central Arizona early this afternoon and 
latest Storm Prediction Center mesoanalysis graphic indicated that best instability was 
also in that area with over 500 j/kg of MLCAPE present at 1 PM. With 
precipitable water values approaching three quarters of an inch out west we have a 
good combination of moisture...instability and lift and not 
surprisingly...scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed 
ahead of the low...across eastern La Paz and Yuma counties and 
western Maricopa County. Some of the strongest cells are in the 
prime difluent area ahead of the low center over northestern La Paz County. 
So far storms have been sub severe and we have covered them with 
significant weather advisories and social media posts. For the rest 
of the afternoon and into the evening there will continue to be a 
chance of showers and thunderstorms across south central 
Arizona...with slight chances further west in the areas behind the 
passing upper low. High temperatures today will be on the cool side 
as the upper low and associated cloud cover moves across the 
area...with most readings in the upper 70s to low 80s over the lower 
deserts. Scattered showers/storms will continue to increase across 
the greater Phoenix area during the middle to late afternoon...then 
continue into the evening hours before starting to dissipate. 


Later tonight into Sunday...as the evening wears on and we move into 
Sunday...the main upper low continues to shift off to the 
east/northeast and the dynamical forcing becomes minimal with time. 
Middle level q convergence bullseye moves into New Mexico overnight 
with a more subsident area of q divergence moving into the lower 
central deserts. Negative vorticity advection/downward vertical velocity overspread the area from the west...and the 
main upper jet axis moves well off to the east and offers no support 
for upward vertical velocity. Pretty much...by late night tonight and Sunday we are left 
with thermodynamic support for showers/convection as cool air aloft 
remains in place over an area of elevated low level moisture. 
Forecast cape values however are low compared to this 
afternoon...mostly less than 200 j/kg and the best cape stays across 
high terrain areas north and east of Phoenix. We will continue to 
keep a chance of showers or storms going over southern Gila County 
through the day on Sunday but lower probability of precipitation to the 15-20 percent 
ballpark over the lower central deserts with time...with probability of precipitation over 
the far western deserts and southeastern California lowering into the single digits. 
We should see some cooling on Sunday...given the nature of the cold 
pool aloft moving across the area and the cloud cover...most 
significant over south central Arizona...and we will lower our highs a 
couple degrees with Phoenix dropping to a high of just 80 on Sunday. 
Actually...would not be surprised if the high in Phoenix Sunday 
remains in the 70s. 


Although the main low will continue to push off to the east Sunday 
night...one more weak baggy trough over Southern California/southern Nevada will slide east 
and into northern Arizona keeping a slight chance of evening showers 
in play over the higher terrain of Joshua Tree np as well as areas 
north and east of Phoenix. Otherwise expect probability of precipitation in the single 
digits over the lower Arizona and California deserts. 


Monday through Thursday... 


Dry westerly flow will develop Monday...followed by a building high 
pressure system Tuesday...Wed...and most of Thursday. This will result 
in mostly clear skies and much warmer temperatures. 


Thursday night through Saturday... 


Models have been forecasting another Pacific weather system to 
approach Southern California late Thursday and Friday. Ensemble spread 
continues bo be wide with respect to timing and intensity. However 
its a near certainty that another Pacific system will move into the 
region by the end of next week and weekend for more cooling... 
wind...and a threat of showers. For now we feel comfortable 
introducing just a slight chance of showers area-wide Friday and 
Saturday with no specifics nor resolution.

Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl... 


With a low pressure storm system sweeping through the region on 
Saturday afternoon and evening expect some scattered rain showers 
and thunderstorms and very breezy south to southwest winds with 
periodic gusts of 20 to 25kts. Through about 03z. Expect the lowest 
ceilings to vary from 7k to 11k feet. Expect west to southwest winds to 
taper off to 7 to 10kts. Tonight with broken ceilings at about 9k feet. 
Light easterly component winds will be favored beginning late 
Saturday night and early Sunday morning. 


Southeast California/southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 
aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


Very breezy to windy northerly component winds with some gusts to 
20kts. Are expected for kblh along with rain showers and 
thunderstorms in the vicinity through early evening. Broken to 
overcast ceilings from 7 to 11k feet. Are also likely through this 
evening. Windy west and northwesterly winds with gusts of 25 to 
30kts are expected for kipl with clear to partly cloudy skies. 
Lighter westerly to northwesterly winds are expected for both sites 
by 03 to 04z. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs.

Fire weather... 
Tuesday through Saturday... 


With a drier and warmer airmass in place expect above normal 
temperatures through Thursday with the hottest day on Wednesday 
reaching into the middle to upper 90s in the lower deserts. Expect 
elevated fire danger on Wednesday and Thursday with minimum 
humidities falling to the 6 to 11 percent range and breezy southerly 
to southwesterly winds spreading through the lower deserts. 
Conditions will improve on Friday and Saturday when the next storm 
system will cool high temperatures to the low to middle 80s with 
minimum humidities in the middle teen to middle 20 percent range by 
Saturday.
