NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1231 am CST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1230 am CST Friday Jan 30 2015 


No major changes made to the ongoing forecast. Increased 
temperatures slight across the far eastern James Valley due to 
persistent cloud cover keeping temperatures up. Otherwise 
everything still looks on track from the previous forecast. 


Update issued at 926 PM CST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


For late evening update have again addressed cloud cover with low 
stratus continue its push to the east through central North 
Dakota. Also addressed some additional low/middle clouds trying to 
enter northern North Dakota affiliated with a weak short wave 
sliding through northwest flow. Will see how this evolves as cloud 
cover may again need to be increased. 


Update issued at 627 PM CST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


For early evening update have adjusted cloud cover a bit to time 
out the erosion of low clouds over central North Dakota and to 
clear out the west. Have also lowered low temperatures a 
bit...mainly over north central where temperatures had already reached 
previous forecast lows in some locations. Updates have been sent. 


&& 


Short term...(late this afternoon through friday) 
issued at 205 PM CST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


Scattered flurries will continue over areas east of the Missouri 
River through the remainder of the afternoon. 


Scattered flurries...along with low cloud cover...should diminish 
this evening as an 850mb ridge axis crests across the region and 
Ushers in drier boundary layer air. Above normal temperatures are 
expected through the night with lows ranging from the single 
digits above zero from The Turtle mountain region to the middle 20s 
southwest. 


Dry conditions and a brief warm-up is forecast Friday as a warm 
front pivots across western and central North Dakota. Friday 
afternoon highs should range from the low 30s northeast to the 
upper 40s southwest. 


Long term...(friday night through thursday) 
issued at 205 PM CST Thursday Jan 29 2015 


The Hudson Bay low deepens through the long term period leading to a 
more active/much colder period for western and central North Dakota. 
A couple of shortwave troughs will produce about three light snow 
events throughout the long term period along with much colder 
air/below normal temperatures by midweek. Wind chill temperatures of 
25 below to 35 below zero possible mainly east of the Missouri River 
during the late night and early morning hours beginning Saturday 
night for most of the long term period. 


Latest water vapor shows an energetic Pacific 120kt jet stream now 
positioned near 150w/40n. This is forecast to push into western 
British Columbia Friday and then dive southeast into central/eastern 
Montana Saturday. The left exit region of the 120kt jet will serve 
to enhance large scale lift across western North Dakota late Friday 
night through Saturday afternoon. A low level baroclinic zone will 
reside in eastern Montana/western North Dakota with multiple 
shortwaves aloft interacting with it. Probability of precipitation were increased to 
categorical for most of the west with deterministic models in decent 
agreement with the synoptic setup and precipitation area. Highest 
snowfall totals late Friday night through Saturday night occur in the 
northwest with 2 to 3 inches forecast. 1 to 2 inches occur elsewhere 
with The Turtle mountains seeing little or no snowfall due to a 
persistent northeast/drier air flow. 


Sunday into Monday...a brief break in the snow can be expected 
Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening. This will be followed up with 
a light snow event via warm air advection processes Sunday night 
into Monday. Snowfall accumulations are forecast to range from a 
half inch to 1.5 inches. 


For Monday night and Tuesday...an Arctic front is forecast to push 
south from Canada. Multiple shortwaves will interact with the 
baroclinic boundary in southeast Montana and southern North Dakota. 
The GFS and European model (ecmwf) now indicate a decent amount of quantitative precipitation forecast in the 
southwest and portions of south central versus previous runs which 
kept the baroclinic zone and snow potential much farther south and 
west. This will need to be monitored closely over the next few days. 


For Wednesday and Thursday...Arctic air with 850mb temperatures of -24c to 
-28c dominate Wednesday which results in high temperatures in the 
single digits above zero along and east of the Missouri River to 
possibly the middle teens west. However depending on how much 
snowfall ultimately falls through Wednesday will have an impact on 
these potential highs. Recovery occurs Thursday with warm air 
advection scooting through western and central North Dakota. This 
also looks to produce some light snow late Thursday and Friday 
mainly in the east central.
