NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
907 am MST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will remain the dominant weather feature over the 
southwestern United States into early next week. This will result in 
a prolonged period of sunny skies...much above normal temperatures... 
relatively light winds...and low humidity values. 


&& 


Discussion... 
notable this morning were the 10.12z radiosonde observations from kfgz and ktwc...both 
featuring heights and temperatures right at record levels at 700 mb 
and 500 mb. Clearly points to another very warm late winter day 
across the southwest. Adjusted forecast temperatures slightly to 
better account for 24-hour trends. Phoenix will be very close to a 
record today...Yuma/S record for the day is out of reach. 


Previous discussion... 


Today through Friday...water vapor satellite imagery clearly shows a 
high amplitude ridge in place along the West Coast of the United 
States...and a deep broad trough covering the eastern Continental U.S. This 
morning. Regional upper air plots place 583-585dm 500mb heights over 
Arizona...along with anomalously warm temperature profiles in both 
850mb and 700mb levels...all of which contributed to the record warm 
temperatures at observed at some sites across our County Warning Area...including 
Phoenix Sky Harbor yesterday afternoon. All models suggest that this 
ridge pattern configuration will persist through the remainder of 
the work week over the Desert Southwest until a more robust eastern 
Pacific shortwave dampens the ridge axis over the weekend. Expect 
little change in our maximum temperatures through Friday...with a 
persistence forecast in the middle to upper 80s in the offing for the 
lower deserts...and afternoon highs flirting with or breaking 
records each day. See climate section below for forecast and record 
details. 


Saturday/Sunday...the southern end of a dry upper level shortwave 
passes through northern Arizona. This will support a degree or two 
of cooling each afternoon...the slight dip in temperatures aided in 
part by some high level cloudiness. 


Monday/Tuesday and beyond...the upper level ridge will quickly 
rebound early next week along with the warmth and above-normal 
temperatures. By midweek...pattern predictability drops off and 
ensemble spread increases...but there are indications in the current 
deterministic model runs that another upper level trough will 
approach the Pacific northwest. How far south in latitude the trough 
will drop and influence our weather pattern affect remains to be 
seen. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and sdl...and 
southeast California/southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 


High pressure aloft...and a very dry airmass...to keep skies clear 
at all of the taf sites through the next 24 hours...and beyond. 
Weakening surface pressure gradients to keep winds for the most part on 
the light side...8 kts or less...and allow them to follow typical 
diurnal trends...with the exception of a a period of slightly 
stronger easterly breezes at kphx during the late morning/early 
afternoon period today. Winds will again favor the north at kblh 
today with periods of light/variable or changing wind directions. 


Although low level easterly winds in the Phoenix area should not 
warrant low level wind shear in the tafs...we may see a brief period...through 15z or 
so...where shear might approach low level wind shear thresholds especially when 
surface winds decrease to calm such as at kphx. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Friday through Tuesday... an unseasonably strong high pressure ridge 
will remain in place over the western states this week and into 
early next week. This will lead to a persistent period of well above 
normals high temperatures...with readings peaking 10 to 15 degrees above 
seasonal normals. Many lower elevation and desert sites will see a 
stretch of days with high temperatures warming past the 80 degree 
mark with warmer deserts rising to record levels...in the upper 80s. 
Relative humidity will also remain on the drier and below normal 
side during the week with min values typically in the low to middle 
teens. 


Light winds are expected Friday through Saturday...and will 
generally follow typical drainage/slope driven headings with light 
speeds. Increased northerly breezes are expected over the western 
deserts...especially along the lower Colorado River valley...Sunday 
into Monday. Sunny days and clear nights will be replaced by 
variable high cloudiness starting Friday and continuing through the 
weekend.
