NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
642 am CDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Update... 
issued at 643 am CDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Fog forming in parts of central North Dakota. Some patchy areas of 
dense fog noted at Mandan and Glen Ullin. Have expanded mention of 
patchy fog until around 9 am CDT when fog should dissipate with 
the beginning of surface heating for the day. Otherwise current 
forecast on track. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 337 am CDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


The early morning forecast challenge is fog. Areas of patchy fog are 
expected to develop across much of central and western North Dakota. 
Favorable conditions may allow for the development of dense fog in 
some areas. Fog has begun to develop in the James River Valley 
and in some south central areas. 


Otherwise...sunny and warm conditions through the day with highs 
expected to be well above average. Temperatures will climb into the 
middle to upper 90s in central and western areas. Seasonal highs for 
this time of year are around 79 f. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 337 am CDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Continued very warm Thursday...followed by a significant pattern 
change for the upcoming Holiday weekend. 


The thermal ridge in place persists into Thursday...but with the 
approach of the upper level longwave trough on the West Coast a 
surface low/trough develops and is positioned over the western 
Dakotas/eastern Montana Thursday morning. This feature moves 
eastward towards central North Dakota Thursday afternoon. Looking at 
high temperatures in the middle to upper 90s along and east of the 
trough...while behind the trough in the northwest expecting 
temperatures reaching into the 80s. 


The thermal ridge and attendant surface trough moves east Thursday 
night...with the first in a series of upper level impulses moving 
northeast in the southwest flow aloft. Chances of showers and 
thunderstorms Thursday night from west to east. 


For the Labor Day weekend: 
Friday and Saturday the West Coast upper trough begins to move 
across The Rockies and continue to send a series of shortwave energy 
impulses across the northern plains. The expected increase in cloud 
cover and cold advection behind the surface trough/front will 
result in much cooler weather. Expected highs Friday in the 70s 
northwest to 80s south central...and highs Saturday mainly in the 
70s. Saturday night/Sunday the base of the trough lifts 
northeastward into the northern plains...reaching southern Canada by 
Sunday night. This time period (friday-sunday) will see good 
chances for showers and thunderstorms. Chances of showers and 
thunderstorms will linger in the north on Monday...with cool 
conditions. Looking at highs on Labor Day Monday in the middle 60s 
north to the lower 70s south. 


The models diverge a bit thereafter...and the forecast consensus is 
mainly dry with a slow temperature recovery. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning) 
issued at 643 am CDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Though areas of patchy fog may linger through 13z...VFR ceilings are 
expected through the taf period for western and central North 
Dakota. 


&& 


Bis watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
