Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 10:52 am CDT on July 25, 2014


... Summary of flood products as of early Friday afternoon...

Flood warnings remain in the Souris river basin for the Souris
river near Towner... Bantry... and Westhope... along with Willow
Creek near Willow City.

Recent rains in the Souris river basin of North Dakota have not produced
much runoff even though runoff in the Saskatchewan portion of the Souris
river basin remains somewhat elevated for this time of year. Regardless...
Souris river forecast points currently above flood stage remain in a slow
but steady downward trend. The Souris river near Towner and Bantry will
fall to flood stage around Tuesday or Wednesday while the Souris river
near Westhope will continue to fall but remain above flood stage until
sometime past the first week of August. Elsewhere... Willow Creek near
Willow City continues its very slow fall from recent highs and will remain
above flood stage until some time in early August. With only modest
amounts of rain in the forecast for the coming week... there appears to be
no significant risk of returning to recent high water Marks.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
248 PM CDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 248 PM CDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


The main concern in the short term is saturday: the chance of 
showers and thunderstorms in the north...and gusty northwest winds 
expected across all of western and central North Dakota. 


Currently...high pressure was over the western Dakotas with dry air 
continuing to push into the state. Dewpoints were in the lower 40s 
over western North Dakota with 50s and 60s in the Devils Lake/James 
River basins. Meanwhile a surface and upper level low was over the 
border of central Alberta and Saskatchewan. 


Tonight the dry surface air with winds becoming southwest at 5 miles per hour 
or so will allow temperatures to drop into the 50s across western 
and central North Dakota. Skies will be clear this evening...but 
some scattered clouds are expected to begin moving southward out of 
Canada into northern North Dakota by daybreak Saturday. 


The stacked low pressure system in Canada is forecast to move 
southeast to the Manitoba/Minnesota/North Dakota border by Saturday 
evening. This will in turn allow a large cloud shield (over 
Alberta/Saskatchewan Friday afternoon) to move southeast as well. 
Expecting partly to mostly cloudy skies Saturday across the northern 
part of the state with mostly sunny skies across the southwest. The 
vicinity of the upper low and its associated cyclonic flow 
aloft...abundance of moisture with layers of low and middle level 
clouds...and the cooler pool of air aloft will allow for the 
formation of instability showers and possible thundershowers across 
northern North Dakota. 


In addition...the wind field will be linked from the surface up to 
h800 and allow northwest winds to increase to 20 to 25 miles per hour with 
gusts to 30 miles per hour. Looks like a borderline Wind Advisory (criteria is 
sustained winds at 30 miles per hour or gusts to 40 mph) day for the southwest. 
Confidence is not high enough to warrant an issuance for a Wind 
Advisory this forecast package. 


A cool day in the north on Saturday with highs from the upper 60s to 
lower 70s. Upper 70s to lower 80s expected across the south. 


Long term...(saturday night through friday) 
issued at 248 PM CDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


Cool and dry is the trend for the long term. 


High amplitude ridging will set up across the mountain west over 
the next couple of days as a potent upper level 
cyclone...currently centered over southern Saskatchewan...ejects 
eastward. The 12 UTC GFS/European model (ecmwf) has this cyclone ejecting eastward 
into Manitoba and northern Minnesota...and possible scattered 
showers and thunderstorms across far north and east North Dakota. 
This upper level trough will quickly depart the area and 
transition into a northwesterly flow regime. 


Meanwhile high pressure at the surface will build in and remain 
entrenched across the eastern Dakotas. Easterly to northeasterly 
winds will usher in dryer and cooler air. With weak flow and 
subsidence across the region and dryer air advecting 
in...moisture...and therefore instability...should remain limited 
at least until midweek. Therefore...a mostly dry week is expected. 
Occasional isolated to scattered thunderstorms during peak 
afternoon heating are possible later in the long term period...but 
no widespread or organized thunderstorm activity is expected at 
this time. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Saturday afternoon) 
issued at 1237 PM CDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


MVFR/VFR ceilings moving out of the kjms area and will keep mention of 
ceilings out at 18z. Otherwise sky clear will dominate the terminals through 
at least 06z...when northern taf sites of kisn/kmot may be impacted 
by scattered clouds of VFR height...becoming broken around 13z-14z. 
Westerly winds gusting up to 25kt will subside by 02z 
Saturday...then winds increase again after 12z Saturday with gusts 
Saturday afternoon over 25 knots.
