NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
302 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Short term...(this afternoon through thursday) 


Issued at 302 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Surface high pressure will continue to rotate southeast across 
North Dakota this afternoon and tonight. Dry and cold conditions 
will result. A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for areas along 
and east of the Missouri River between 00z-16z Thursday. Minimum 
wind chill temperatures are forecast to drop to around 30 below 
zero during that time frame. 


Strong warm air advection will then develop Thursday as westerly 
boundary layer flow develops in response to a weak surface trough 
traversing the state. Decided to forecast a few degrees warmer 
than MOS guidance for areas along and southwest of the Missouri 
River since there is no snow pack on the ground in that location. 
As a result...highs should generally be in the low to middle 40s 
southwest of the Missouri River...with highs in the 20s and 30s 
east of the Missouri River where snow pack remains. 




Long term...(thursday night through wednesday) 


Issued at 302 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Forecast highlights in the long term period will be mild and mainly 
dry conditions through this weekend into next week. 


Northwest flow aloft will be in place across the northern plains 
through the weekend. Arctic airmass scoured out Thursday will help 
temperatures warm back to more seasonal in the 30s and 40s 
Fri-sun...much above what we saw the past few days. Cooler air will 
be east and warmer west with a quasi-stationary frontal boundary 
meandering west to east/east to west across the western and central 
Dakotas. Light precipitation chances will be possible this weekend 
as embedded shortwave impulses move through the flow aloft. Kept chances 
on the low end. Each wave and associated surface reflection will result 
in either weak warm air advection or weak cold air advection. These hard to time/track features 
results in a bit of uncertainty on how warm we will actually 
get...and this is especially true for Saturday when models bring 
through the stronger of these waves. 12z GFS/NAM suggest cooler and 
the 12z European model (ecmwf) warmer. Thus forecast highs will either be maintained 
or trended downwards. 


Flow transitions to more westerly early to middle next week as a 
flattening ridge builds east across The Rockies into the Great 
Plains. This should be a dry period with little if any chance of 
moisture. 


Uncertainty ramps up afterwards...GFS returns cold weather to the 
region...European model (ecmwf) maintains if not warms the mild weather.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 


Issued at 1237 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Breezy conditions will continue over western and central North 
Dakota this afternoon. In addition...intermittent MVFR ceilings will 
continue over the I-94 corridor this afternoon. Winds should taper 
off and ceilings improve after 00z this evening...with light wind and 
VFR conditions continuing through Thursday morning.
