Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Bismarck ND 609 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 Update... issued at 601 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 Quiet weather remains over the area with clear skies. Only change to forecast this morning was to remove all cloud cover and adjust light southwesterly winds towards current conditions. Updates have been sent. && Short term...(today and tonight) issued at 343 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 Currently...a surface low pressure center was over central Manitoba with a relatively small upper level shortwave trough associated with it. Another surface low center was over southern Alberta...associated with a larger upper level low/trough. Today and tonight...the Alberta low pressure system is forecast to maintain its intensity as it moves east into the Canadian prairies in northern Saskatchewan...and merge with the smaller Manitoba system. This will keep a zonal west-to-east upper level flow across North Dakota...with the main energy from any upper level impulses staying north of the Canadian border. Thus expecting dry weather with mainly clear skies today...with some middle/high clouds moving into western North Dakota tonight. These two systems in Canada will keep a dry southwesterly surface wind flow across the forecast area today and tonight. Looking at highs today from the upper 60s to lower 70s. Lows tonight from the upper 30s to upper 40s. As mentioned in the previous forecast discussions...there should be good viewing opportunities for the partial solar eclipse Thursday afternoon. Long term...(friday through wednesday) issued at 343 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 On Friday...cold front pushes its way through the area. Warmest temperatures will be towards the southern James River Valley where cooler air will be later to arrive. With that said...temperatures will still be above average throughout the area. With relatively dry atmosphere along with the main upper wave passing to the north will keep conditions dry. Primary concern will be winds...mainly over north central North Dakota where pressure gradient will be the tightest. Stronger winds will mix down with ample cold air advection. For now have held winds below advisory criteria...but will keep an eye on this on subsequent shifts. Upper ridge passing over the area will keep conditions dry and mild through Sunday afternoon. Trough then works its way over The Rockies and into the plains to start the work week bringing occasional precipitation chances along with cooler temperatures. && Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning) issued at 601 am CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 Mainly clear skies will persist over western and central North Dakota through 00z. Middle level clouds are forecast to enter western North Dakota around 00z and move/expand east across the state Thursday evening. Winds should be mainly southwesterly through the taf period. && Bis watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Update...jjs short term...jv long term...jjs aviation...jv
