National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
610 PM CDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Update... 
issued at 609 PM CDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


High pressure building into western North Dakota has pretty much 
ended all chances for precipitation across North Dakota this 
evening. Sent out a quick update to remove evening probability of precipitation as a result. 


The surface high is prognosticated to slowly meader east across the state 
tonight. As it does...skies are expected to clear and winds should 
become light. The combination of weak winds and clearing skies 
should lead to an ideal radiational cooling environment tonight. 
As a result...lowered forecast lows to the upper 40s in most spots 
as the position of the surface ridge axis is prognosticated to be between 
Bismarck and Jamestown Saturday morning. This will also lead to 
radiational fog development. For now indicated patchy fog in the 
grids...but may need to increase to areas of fog after midnight 
based on the evening trends. Will continue to monitor. The updated 
products will be out shortly. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 


Issued at 305 PM CDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Current surface analysis places frontal boundary pushing into the 
Red River valley while high stretches from southern Saskatchewan 
into eastern Montana. Upper level analysis places trough pushing 
over the West Coast with weak ridging over the northern rockies while 
short wave continues to push its way through western into central 
North Dakota. A few showers noted ahead of the wave sliding 
through central into eastern North Dakota. Skies remain mostly 
cloudy over the area. 


For the rest of this afternoon into this evening...shower activity 
will continue to slide towards the east and diminish by middle 
evening as the short wave exits the area and ridge passes over. With 
clearing skies and light winds have added patchy fog later this 
evening through the overnight. 


On Saturday...Ridge pushes to the east as broad trough pushes over 
The Rockies. Potent initial short wave makes its approach around 
mid-day. Expect showers and thunderstorms to start to develop from 
west to east through western North Dakota in the afternoon. Models 
continue to advertise strengthening instability with plenty of 
shear to support rotating updrafts. Therefore...will have to watch 
for severe potential. 


Long term...(saturday night through friday) 


Issued at 305 PM CDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


A semi-active weather pattern will be in place through the long 
term period. 


Showers/strong thunderstorms look to be ongoing or will be 
momentarily Saturday evening as a strong embedded impulse and deep 
surface low eject northeast across the northern plains. Models 
still project plenty of instability and 0-6km wind shear for a few 
stronger storms...especially along the surface trough/frontal boundary 
situated near the Montana/ND border. Due to the expected progressive 
nature of the middle level wave...do not anticipate Hydro problems at 
this time. Strong to severe storms will be possible through the 
evening hours...mainly across western North Dakota (west of 
Highway 83) in proximity to the instability axis. 


Active flow continues Sunday when a long wave trough moves east 
through the Great Plains...exiting off to our east later Sunday 
night. In this feature's wake...models continue to depict plenty 
of embedded energy in northwest flow aloft to justify maintaining 
some mention of precipitation for Labor Day. 


Flow aloft becomes more zonal later Tuesday through Thursday which 
would support drier weather...but cannot completely rule out 
precipitation with the upper level jet stream orientated west to 
east along the international border. 


Temperatures will remain near to slightly below normal through 
the period...with highs in the 70s to lower 80s and lows in the 
upper 40s and 50s.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Saturday evening) 
issued at 609 PM CDT Friday Aug 29 2014 


Kisn-kdik-kmot-kbis should remain VFR through the taf period. 
However...shallow fog will be possible over western and central 
North Dakota later tonight. Scattered thunderstorms could begin to 
impact kisn Saturday afternoon...mainly after 21z. 


Otherwise...MVFR ceilings should remain over kjms through the evening 
hours...then transition to IFR ceilings/visibilities after midnight. VFR 
conditions are then expected over kjms by late morning through 
late Saturday afternoon.
