NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
233 PM MST Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
showers and thunderstorms will be possible again tonight across the 
Phoenix area and points east...although a slight drying trend is 
expected by the middle of the week. Moisture is expected to return to 
the area late in the week with additional showers/storms possible 
Friday through the weekend. A gradual cooling trend is also 
anticipated this week through Thursday. 


&& 


Discussion... 
latest streamline analysis shows that the ridge has drifted slightly 
to the east...but overall very little has changed synoptically over 
the past few days. Interesting to note that the ncar ensemble picked 
up on the morning activity across Gila County and consequently more 
weight was assigned to this guidance through the evening. 


Other convective allowing guidance continues to suggest that 
isolated/scattered thunderstorms will again develop across the 
Phoenix area and points eastward this evening...aided by sufficient 
low-level moisture...boundary propagation from the south and 
relatively cool temperatures aloft associated with a trough to the 
west. Latest acars soundings show that steering flow has veered 
slightly to the southwest...which at least conceptually should focus 
activity somewhat further east than in previous nights. A warm layer 
near 700 mb is also evident...which is likely resulting in 
considerable convective inhibition and mostly clear skies across the 
Phoenix area. 


U of a wrfs have performed well the past few evenings and again 
indicate that scattered activity is possible across the Phoenix area. 
Forecast probability of precipitation were increased to 20-30 percent across portions of 
south-central Arizona for tonight. Most areas will not see measurablerainfall...though 
lightning...gusty winds and areas of blowing dust are more probable. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
forecast confidence Tuesday through Thursday is low. Deterministic 
guidance taken at face value would suggest a downward trend in storms 
through middle week...however probabilistic tools suggest the bl will 
remain moist with modest instability across the region. Of course the 
missing ingredient is a trigger to kick off storms in the first place 
and none of the deterministic guidance indicate much in the way of 
inverted troughs or larger scale features. Will hang onto somewhat 
elevated probability of precipitation /higher than climatology/ through middle week on the premise 
that storms will be triggered by colliding outflows. 


Forecast confidence isn't much higher later in the forecast period. 
It would appear that moisture will be drawn into the region from the 
tropics late in the week /Friday-Saturday/ although exactly where 
this axis of deepest moisture resides is still up for debate. 
00z deterministic GFS and European model (ecmwf) suggest anomalously high precipitable waters  and 
mixing ratios will overspread much of the Desert Southwest whereas 
gefs and naefs keep this moisture south of the international border 
and shift it toward the Arizona/nm border. Given the magnitude of the 
700-300mb flow during this time period /around 30-40kts/...i'm 
skeptical the moisture will remain confined to the border and points 
south. Dewpoints have been bumped up late in the week and probability of precipitation have 
also been elevated a bit over inherited values /more in line with 
climo/. Could end up seeing elevated rain chances late in the week 
into the weekend...but could just as easily see increase cloud cover 
and dry conditions depending on where the moisture axis positions 
itself. Thus confidence in precipitation chances is low. Fairly high 
confidence in lower temperatures late in the week with some of the 
raw unable-corrected guidance pointing to highs in the upper 90s. Lowered 
temperatures a few degrees from Friday Onward accordingly. 


&& 


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


Weather conditions similar to those observed over the weekend only 
slightly shifted a little further to the east. So resulting forecast 
for the Phoenix area terminals will be again for at least thunderstorms in the vicinity for a 
period this evening...with outflow intrusions to come before any 
thunder development. Thinking that any outflow wind shifts could 
occur around 01/02z or so...with cumulonimbus and ts/rain development possibly 
following over the remainder of the evening hours. Debris cloudiness 
and a stray shower could linger beyond midnight before conditions 
scatter out towards the am hours. 


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


Passing middle and high level clouds will continue to drift 
northeastward as subtle troughing aloft remains over southeast California. 
Daytime winds for kipl to stay mostly vrb before taking up typical 
sundowner westerlies in the evening. Elevated southerly breezes to 
persist for kblh with some afternoon gustiness just shy of 20kts or so. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Wednesday through Sunday... 
a low pressure system across the Pacific northwest will displace the 
monsoon high slightly to the south and east through the week. The 
trend will be towards cooler conditions across the Desert Southwest 
with high temperatures near or slightly below seasonal normals each 
day. However sufficient moisture will linger across eastern Arizona 
to keep at least a slight chance for thunderstorms from Phoenix east 
Wednesday into Thursday. Minimum relative humidity values will fall below 15 
percent Wednesday and Thursday across southeast California with 
values above 15 percent expected east of the lower Colorado River. 
For Friday into the weekend...latest guidance more insistent upon a 
return to deeper moisture...higher humidity and better rain 
chances...particularly across south central Arizona.
