NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
330 PM MST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Update... 
updated aviation and fire weather sections. 


&& 


Synopsis... 
high pressure off the West Coast will result in near normal 
temperatures with varying amounts of high clouds through the middle 
of the week. By Thursday...a fast moving storm system will swing 
through the Great Basin...bringing slightly cooler temperatures and 
increased cloudiness that will last through Friday. Dry...and 
potentially much cooler...weather is expected by the coming weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through Wednesday...models in the short term are in very 
good agreement that the ridge will continue to strengthen... 
maintaining 582-588dm 500mb heights over California. The ridge axis 
will remain offshore and cloud cover will be minimal across the 
southwest states in this time frame...but daytime temperatures are expected 
to be warm again Tuesday...into the low to middle 70s for the lower 
deserts across southeast California and the lower Colorado River 
valley. Currently...a vigorous short wave impulse continues to slide 
down the eastern periphery of the ridge...along the Lee side of The 
Rockies into the central Continental U.S.. the fast moving trough will send a 
backdoor cold front to the southwest through Arizona overnight...and 
the disturbance will bottom out over West Texas by Tuesday morning. 
The front will be dry...but the intrusion of drier cold air will 
offset any warming expected over our south-central Arizona zones... 
with just a few degrees of cooling expected across southeast 
California and the lower Colorado River Valley. North-northeasterly 
winds will increase tonight and remain elevated through most of the 
day Tuesday into Wednesday...with local wind gusts of 35-40 miles per hour 
common across southeast California...along the lower Colorado River 
valley...and locally over higher elevation and mountain sites in 
south-central Arizona. Other locations in the forecast area might 
not experience these strong winds...but it will still be noticeably 
breezy compared to the calm winds experienced in many areas over the 
last week or so. The winds will abate by Wednesday morning...and 
cooler temperatures back into the 60s will prevail across the lower 
deserts. 




Thursday -- Christmas day -- through the coming weekend...fair model 
agreement is holding for the late week and weekend forecast as the 
upper level pattern returns to more active and progressive set-up. 
00z solutions from the operational GFS and European model (ecmwf) plot the passing 
Great Basin shortwave a bit deeper and further to the south across 
Arizona late Thursday into Friday. Both these solutions even paint some 
thicker clouds and very light quantitative precipitation forecast over the eastern Arizona higher 
terrain...as a narrow band of elevated precipitable waters  is drawn into the 
region from off the so cal coast and Baja California California. Forecast precipitable water values at this time 
aren't overly impressive...mostly shy of 0.70 inch. Upper shortwave 
will quickly exit to the east Friday...as unsettled broad 
northwesterly flow remains over much of the west. Continued cool 
temperatures and periods of passing clouds are possible as several 
shortwaves traverse the flow. 


Towards the far extended period of the late weekend and early next 
week...models are hinting at a dry but potently colder system 
expanding southward from Canada late Sunday. Much of the interior 
west could be in for a spell of below normal temperatures... 
resulting in some of our coolest nights observed so far this late in 
the calendar year. 


&& 


Aviation... 
south-central Arizona including kphx...kiwa...and ksdl...southeast 
California and southwest Arizona...including kipl and kblh... 
the approach and passage of a dry cold front from the north tonight 
will lead to strengthening north and northeast winds...especially 
over and near the lower Colorado River valley. Winds in the lower 
levels above the surface will become quite strong over southeast 
California and southwest Arizona which may lead to low level wind 
shear conditions by 03z if the surface winds remain light. 
Anticipate gusty north and northeast surface winds across the 
forecast area by 16z. Skies will be clear except for decreased slant 
visibilities this afternoon due to smog. Some local blowing dust is 
possible after 16z in the more dust prone areas. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
Wednesday through Sunday... 
light winds can be expected Wednesday before another weather system 
moves through Thursday and Friday for breezy conditions at times 
along with cooler temperatures. The system will have limited 
moisture and there is only a slight chance of precipitation which 
will be limited to the higher terrain of south-central Arizona 
Thursday night. No critical fire weather conditions are expected. 
There may be some lingering breezes Saturday morning but otherwise 
winds this weekend will be light and conditions will be dry. 
Otherwise temperatures for the latter half of this week and weekend 
will be near to slightly below normal.
