NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
255 PM MST Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
occasional showers and thunderstorms will be common across the 
mountains of southern and eastern Arizona through much of the week. 
There will be some opportunity for showers to affect lower elevation 
desert communities during the middle of the week. Afternoon 
temperatures will remain slightly above normal this week before 
moderating back down towards normal by the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
the forecast area is caught between two mcvs...with debris clouds 
and lingering thundershower activity holding over southeast California... 
rapidly cooling convective cloud tops over the rim and fairly clear 
skies over the lower Arizona desert elevations. Am cloud cover and 
increased moisture pool has allowed daytime temperatures to be on 
the slightly cooler side...with area temperatures 3 to 5 degrees 
cooler than Monday afternoon. Will look for radar coverage to 
rapidly fill in over the rim the next few hours and drop outflows 
and resulting storm build-ups into the Lower Desert elevations while 
storm activity slowly clears to the west across southeast California. 


Aircraft soundings...satellite observed winds and a special 18z 
sounding from ktwc today all indicate still favorable speed shear 
and enhanced steering flow afternoon/evening profile available across 
Southeast Arizona and into eastern Arizona. Model forecasts continue favorable ml 
shear...ballpark 30 to 40 kts across southeast/south-central Arizona...this 
evening and into the overnight hours. Blended tpw precipitable waters  and GPS ipw 
indicate 1.5 to 1.7 inch values throughout much of Arizona ahead of the 
compact mesoscale convective vortex just over the nm bootheel. Forecast soundings across the 
region still paint fairly health ml and mu convective available potential energy amounts anywhere 
from 1000-1500 j/kg during the afternoon and evening. All this 
coming together to say potential is high...and concern as well...for 
strong storms this evening first over the higher terrain and then 
developing down in the Arizona desert elevations. Similar to last evening 
over the Phoenix metropolitan....strong storms on the periphery may send 
several strong outflows into the region to help initial activity 
during the evening. Even though storm motion may be faster than what 
we typically see during the monsoon...cannot rule out heavy rainfall 
potential as well given the near-record amounts of moisture in the 
area for this late in June. Strong downburst/microburst winds...long- 
lived outflows...accompanying blowing dust and even hail in the 
some of the stronger updraft storms are possible with development 
tonight. 


With the additional boost of energy and potential from the long- 
traveling Texas mesoscale convective vortex...storms have the potential to persist towards the 
Colorado River valley and into southeast California later overnight and into 
Wednesday. Plenty of debris clouds will great the area by the 
am...keeping the overnight temperatures on the warmside but also 
introducing the potential for a slightly cooler Wednesday and open 
to July with at least normal temperatures for the area. 


500mb high begins to reposition back towards The Four Corners area 
today and Thursday...allowing for an additional wave or two to 
rotate around the southern periphery of the high. The upper level 
high remains in a northwest-southeast oriented fashion through Friday. This 
configuration will continue to promote a low grade monsoon pattern 
and daily convection dependent on how instability modifies over 
time. Precipitation chances dwindle a bit Thursday and Friday as the 
low level flow is really not conducive to importing Richer moisture 
into the region. So...the best precipitation chances will be limited to 
higher terrain locations during this time frame as moisture may 
begin to mix out at lower elevations. 


However...by Saturday-Sunday...the high begins to shift and the axis 
once again aligning north to south over the intermountain west... 
the high 500-300mb centers stacking/co-locating near The Four 
Corners area. This is a very favorable position of the high for 
southeast flow and good moisture advection. 


&& 


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


Active night is expected convectively speaking...as an unseasonably 
strong middle level easterly wind field will advect storms across the 
higher terrain from east to west this evening. Due to high amounts 
of moisture and instability as well as stronger then normal winds 
aloft...storms will likely become well organized and persist through 
the evening and into the morning hours...affecting all of the taf 
sites. At the moment...due to lower confidence with timing...will 
simply mention thunderstorms in the vicinity in the tafs after about 03z and keep this in 
past midnight. Winds will also be downplayed but could become strong 
and gusty at any terminal overnight. Short term updates will be 
needed for the tafs to address gusty variable winds as well as thunderstorms and rain 
at the airports. Ceilings likely to stay at or above 8k feet overnight unless 
very heavy rain persists at the terminal. Broken middle decks are also 
expected to continue into the morning hours Wednesday...with most 
bases above 9k feet. 


Southeast California and southwest Arizona including kipl and kblh... 


Very little is expected in terms of clouds or weather at the 
terminals this afternoon and evening...but there is a good chance 
for showers/storms to move out of the central Arizona deserts and into 
the area later tonight and persist into the morning hours on 
Wednesday. For now will simply mention vcsh at kblh and kipl after 
09z...but it is possible that thunder may affect the terminals. For 
the most part ceilings overnight should stay above 8k feet unless heavy 
rain develops at an unfavorable time of day...and persists at the 
terminals. Winds should favor the south at kblh next 24 hours...and 
may get gusty overnight and into Wednesday morning with speeds above 15kt. 
Winds to favor the south to southeast at kipl mostly less than 12kts. 


Winds to favor the south most of the next 24 hours at kblh...and 
favor the southeast at kipl with speeds mostly at or below 12kt. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Thursday through Monday... 
a low grade monsoon pattern will be in place through the week... 
characterized by near or slightly above normal temperatures...and 
widely scattered afternoon and evening showers/thunderstorms that 
move from east to west off the mountains and into the lower deserts 
each day. For Thursday into Saturday the storms will primarily focus 
over the higher terrain with rather low chances of surviving into 
the lower deserts. Sunday into early next week...as humidities rise 
there will be a better chance of thunderstorms and showers moving 
into the central deserts during the overnight hours. Daytime 
humidity values generally will be in the upper teens to middle 20 
percent range through Saturday with humidities rising several 
percent by Monday. Very good overnight recovery is expected each 
night. Winds each day will be light and favor southwesterly 
directions through Friday...becoming southerly by the weekend.
