NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1225 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1225 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Only minor tweaks were made to the ongoing forecast. 


Canadian radar shows scattered showers moving southeast across the 
Canadian prairies. The latest run of the hrrr (03 utc) picks up on 
the Canadian activity and brings a few isolated showers across 
the north through the early morning hours. Updated the precipitation 
forecast to reflect the latest trends. 


Latest temperature observations were nearing overnight forecast lows 
already. With several hours of diurnal cooling ahead...lowered the 
overnight lows a few more degrees. 


Update issued at 938 PM CDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Scattered/isolated showers and thunderstorms have diminished over 
the last hour with the loss of daytime heating. Removed evening 
probability of precipitation from the forecast as a result. Also adjusted the hourly 
temperature/dewpoint grids based on current obs/trends. The updated 
products have been sent. 


Update issued at 604 PM CDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Isolated to scattered instability showers and thunderstorms will 
continue to develop through the early evening hours...mainly over 
western North Dakota. With very weak deep layer shear in 
place...this convection is expected to be brief and sub-severe. It 
should end by 03z this evening...if not sooner. 


After midnight...the mesoscale models forecast a weak wave and 
attendant light quantitative precipitation forecast to skirt across the Canadian border counties. 
As a result...will maintain slight chance probability of precipitation across the 
extreme northern County Warning Area after midnight. Convection should be brief 
and remain sub-severe if it even materializes. 


Otherwise...just made a few cosmetic adjustments to the hourly 
sensible weather grids. The updated products will be out shortly. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through tuesday) 
issued at 247 PM CDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Current surface analysis places low over Ontario with high over 
the Pacific northwest into the central rockies. Upper level 
analysis places broad trough centered over the plains working 
towards the Midwest. Modest short wave working through the flow 
now making its way from eastern Montana into the western Dakotas 
starting to produce some convection. 


For the rest of this afternoon into this evening...expect some 
showers and thunderstorms to continue to develop through the 
afternoon. Expect any activity should remain on the tame side with 
weak instability/shear. Most activity should come to an end this 
evening with diminishing insolation...though some showers/storms 
may linger through the overnight over far northern North Dakota as 
another wave makes its way through. 


On Tuesday...a few showers/storms may continue over the far north 
as aforementioned wave continues to make its way through. Otherwise 
a quiet day is on tap as low amplitude ridge starts to work its 
way into the area. Slightly milder temperatures are expected. 


Long term...(tuesday night through monday) 
issued at 247 PM CDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


The extended model suite is in good agreement with a positively 
tilted shortwave trough currently located/elongated from 140w/60n 
to 150w/55n...to shift inland Tuesday night. This trough is 
forecast to remain neutral to slightly negative tilted as it 
slides across western and central North Dakota Wednesday 
night/Thursday morning. This will be the time period with the 
highest probability of precipitation...scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. 
Heaviest rainfall appears to occur over north central North Dakota 
with around 0.65 inches forecast from Mohall to Stanley...and from 
Minot to near Garrison. NAM/GFS soundings show a strong cap in 
place through 00z Thursday for kmot/kbis/kjms...and a weaker cap 
in place at kisn/kdik. Have confined probability of precipitation to mainly the northwest 
and portions of north central North Dakota Wednesday...with 
showers and thunderstorms increasing in coverage Wednesday 
evening and night. A potent cold front sweeps through Wednesday 
night with the upper trough approaching and sliding through on 
Thursday. Storm Prediction Center has a see text which includes North Dakota...however 
limited low level moisture per an east to southeasterly flow may 
inhibit organized severe thunderstorms from developing. However 
strong 0-6km shear of 55kt to 60kt will be in place ahead of the 
upper trough and along/ahead of the surface cold front. This will be 
monitored closely. 


Strong cooling as the 850 mb front slides through...with temperatures cooling 
from around +20c Wednesday evening...to +6c Thursday evening. Expect 
the greatest warmth to occur across southern North Dakota Wednesday 
afternoon along/ahead of the 850 mb thermal ridge axis. Expect highs in 
the lower 80s. This will be replaced with widespread highs in the 
60s...except lower 70s in the far southern James River Valley 
Thursday. Breezy northwest winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour will also 
materialize behind the front for Thursday. With the upper trough 
swinging through Thursday...still expect a chance for showers and 
thundershowers mainly across the north. 


Thereafter...Friday through Sunday...dry weather with a slow 
moderating trend as broad cyclonic northwest flow dominates through 
Saturday. This transitions to broad ridging Sunday and highs warming 
into the middle 70s. A slight chance of thunderstorms could return by 
Monday but the better chances arrive Tuesday.

period with predominately west southwest winds and scattered high 
clouds.
