NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
226 PM MST Friday Aug 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
low pressure will move east of the area overnight...with only a few 
isolated showers expected across the region this evening. Drier 
conditions are expected through the weekend along with slightly 
cooler than normal temperatures. A return to a more typical monsoon 
pattern is expected early next week...with afternoon and evening 
showers and thunderstorms returning to the region. 


&& 


Discussion... 
not really much in the way of thunderstorm activity across the state 
this afternoon. Visible satellite imagery reveals quite a bit of 
flattened cumulus...with very little in the way of build-ups...and 
only a few isolated lightning strikes across far eastern Arizona. 
Even though there is sufficient moisture...the lack of upper level 
support over southeast California...southwest and south-central 
Arizona has kept potential thunderstorm development confined to the 
higher terrain and mountains well North/East of Phoenix this 
afternoon. If any storm does form over the lower deserts...it will 
be short lived...and once we lose the peak insolation/heating of the 
day...all storms will quickly dissipate. 


Drier west-northwesterly flow aloft will continue to set up across 
the region behind the departing trough this evening...and this will 
effectively shunt monsoon moisture eastward into New Mexico for the 
weekend. Holistically...the same drier/stable pattern is expected 
for Saturday and Sunday as low level mixing ratios bottom out around 
5-6 g/kg. Daytime temperatures will continue to be below normal for 
another a couple of days...holding in the middle to upper 90s to around 
100 degrees Saturday...with a few more degrees of warming for Sunday. 


Next week will see a return to a more typical monsoon setup as high 
pressure slides east and low level winds turn around out of the 
southeast. While there are some differences in the models regarding 
a trough moving through Utah by the middle of next week...both the 
GFS and European...as well as the 12z naefs indicate a noteworthy 
increase in moisture across the area Monday/Tuesday next week. This 
could be the result of the passage of a tropical system well south 
of the Gulf of California...or it could simply be outflow driven 
from convection over Sonora. Regardless...mixing ratios expected to 
return to the 10-12 g/kg range early next week which should set the 
stage for afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day through at 
least Friday. Tough to pick out one active day over another...but 
probability of precipitation have been nudged toward climatology /and slightly higher east of 
Phoenix/ from Tuesday through Friday.

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


Expect clear skies and light winds overnight unto Saturday morning 
as upper level low shifts into New Mexico. Surface winds over 
southwest Arizona and southeast California will hold on to southerly 
component this afternoon before trending toward southwest and west 
this evening...with local gusts to 20 kts this evening at kipl until 
around 04z. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Monday through Friday... 
humidities will gradually trend up early in the week...staying 
elevated as the week progresses with good overnight recovery. Storm 
chances will remain slight and favor the higher terrain of south 
central Arizona...however they will expand slowly westward to near 
the lower Colorado River valley by Wednesday. Haines index values 
peak at 5 over portions of southeast California and southwest 
Arizona Monday before trending downward. Expect lower values over 
south-central Arizona due to better atmospheric moisture content. 


&& 


Psr watches/warnings/advisories... 


Arizona...none. 


California...none.
