NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Phoenix Arizona 
1051 am MST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Update... 
updated aviation section. 


&& 


Synopsis...high pressure will remain the dominant weather feature 
over the southwestern United States through the coming work week. 
This will result in a prolonged period of sunny skies and above 
normal temperatures along with relatively light winds. 


&& 


Discussion... 


An anomalously strong high pressure system built over the region 
last night and will remain stationary this week. Temperatures on the 
lower deserts will warm into the 80s. However...today a developing 
subtropical like low pressure system will track well south of 
Arizona...moving eastward across central Baja California this afternoon and into 
north central mex south of El Paso on Tuesday. A resulting north/south 
pressure gradient will continue across Arizona for much of the day with 
north and northeasterly breezes particularly down the Colorado River 
valley. Lighter winds are forecast on Tuesday. Otherwise current dry 
forecasts look OK. No updates planned. 


Previous discussion...435 am MST... 


Upper ridge heights encompass the western majority of the North 
American continent...spanning far to the north into Yukon and northwest 
territories as well as Alaska. Meanwhile...general area of weak/lower 
heights continues to persist west of and over the Baja California peninsula in 
conjunction with an ul circ center best observed via 400mb and above 
streamlines. Cloud cover remains confined to locations just along and 
south of the international border at time of this writing...with 
clear skies and mild overnight temperatures observed across the County Warning Area. 


Forecast for this work week will be one of persistence...with 
daytime highs peaking into the 80s for many Lower Desert sites and 
overall dry conditions. The forecast area will generally remain on 
the eastern flank of the strong West Coast ridge...with 1000-500mb 
thicknesses peaking into the middle 560dm range and 850mb temperatures 
ranging 14 to 16c each afternoon with fairly good mixing. This 
orientation of the ridge will also lead to prolonged periods of 
easterly Ridgetop/gap winds over the higher terrain North/East of 
Phoenix and northerly winds down the Colorado River valley. Forecast ml/ul wind 
streamlines indicate the ridge circ center...currently analyzed over 
CA/or...to sink southward through the Great Basin and over socal 
during the week. This motion will shunt the aforementioned weak 
ml/ul low anchored slightly over Baja California California and associated subtropical 
jet stream off to our southeast. Western ridge heights rank in the 99th 
percentile to maximum range on naefs percentile tables and forecast highs 
reflect the anomalous warmth as well. A few records could be at 
stake...mostly in Phoenix...during the work week. Please reference 
the climate section below for the forecast values and record data. 


Extended period... 
deterministic and ensemble forecast solutions are in excellent agreement 
through the late weekend...continuing our warm and dry forecast under 
a West Coast ridge. Ridge heights do become modified during the end 
of the week as a Pacific shortwave rides up into the Pacific northwest. 
Phasing and solution differences begin to crop up beginning Monday 
15/00z /Sunday night/. Differences lie between the resolution and 
depth of shortwave movement over the north central Continental U.S. As well as 
convection over the equatorial Pacific/El Nino region. GFS/gefs 
solutions maintain tropospheric weakness will be stronger over the 
eastern Pacific such that shortwave energy will cut off and interact 
with another east Pacific/Baja California low and bring some moisture into the 
region by early next week. Meanwhile...ec/Gem/naefs solutions are not as 
enthusiastic...maintaining ridge heights and dry conditions over the 
County Warning Area. The one upside among these differences will be a slight 
lowering of ul heights...with a subtle scaling back the warmth from 
the work week for the weekend. 


&& 


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


Expect east and northeasterly surface winds to prevail today through 
Tuesday being at their strongest midday and early afternoon...gusts 
15-20 kts occasionally...but otherwise remain below 10 kts at other 
times. Anticipate some light and variable conditions from time to 
time...especially late afternoon and evening. In the lower levels 
above the surface winds will be solidly from the east- northeast. 
Also in that layer...but within 1-2 kft above ground level...speeds will strengthen 
again tonight to about 20 kts. Expect this situation to remain below 
criteria for mention of low level wind shear in the tafs. Otherwise...clear skies 
except for some cirrus passing to the south. 


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


Expect northerly surface winds to prevail through Tuesday being at 
their strongest this afternoon over the lower Colorado River valley 
with gusts to 20 kts. Anticipate some locations to have light and 
variable conditions favoring typical drainage patterns overnight and 
in the morning hours. Otherwise...clear skies except for some cirrus 
passing to the south. 


Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs. 


&& 


Fire weather... 


Wednesday through Sunday...an unseasonably strong high pressure 
ridge will build over the western states during the 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. Rh's will 
also remain on the drier and below normal side during the week with 
min values typically in the low to middle teens. 


Locally breezy conditions along the Colorado River valley are expected 
each afternoon. More noticeable easterly winds will flow into the 
south-central Arizona deserts...with elevated winds over ridgetops and 
gaps to the North/East of Phoenix. Winds elsewhere will generally 
follow typical drainage/slope driven headings with light speeds. By 
weeks end the upper ridge will begin to shift to our east as 
troughing aligns itself over the West Coast again. Some very slight 
temperature cooling and increasing cloudiness are likely over the 
weekend.
