National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
948 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

issued at 943 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

Most of the evening convection has died. Still a few showers 
remaining over the northwest and from around Minot to just west of 
Jamestown...but are fading fast. Will remove the mention of 
thunder for this evening. Mesoscale models and new NAM are still 
hinting at some shower activity late tonight around The Turtle 
mountains. Could be enough instability aloft for an elevated 
thunder so will keep a mention of isolated thunderstorms in this 
area after midnight. Otherwise no significant updates needed. 

Update issued at 648 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

Instability showers and scattered thunderstorms continue to 
diminish in coverage this evening. Adjusted probability of precipitation downward a bit 
with just a mention of isolated thunder early this evening. For 
now did keep a mention of isolated thundershowers across the north 
later tonight as previously forecast. Otherwise no significant 
changes to the going forecast. 


Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 316 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

Thunderstorm chances this afternoon and evening...and again on 
Wednesday afternoon highlight the short term forecast. 

As of 2030 UTC...scattered showers and thunderstorms continue to 
develop across much of western and central North Dakota. This 
trend is expected into the early evening....with a diurnal down 
trend with sunset. Given ml cape values of 500-700 j/kg and very 
weak deep layer shear...no severe weather is expected. 

For tonight...the 12 UTC WRF-arw/nmm and 16-18 UTC hrrr 
iterations continue to suggest isolated convection across 
northwest North Dakota with weak impulses ejecting out of the 
upper level low across Washington and Idaho. Additional isolated 
showers and storms are possible across The Turtle 
mountains...again with weak impulses propagating southeast in the 
northern stream. 

On Wednesday...a more potent upper level wave is forecast to 
propagate into western North Dakota during the afternoon. 12 UTC 
NAM/GFS bufr soundings suggest rather weak ml cape in the 200-500 
j/kg range...with severe convection as a result not expected. 
However....precipitable water values of 1.00 to 1.25 inches 
points to another round of potential widespread moderate rainfall 
amounts in the 0.30 to 0.50 inch range with widespread showers and 
thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. 

Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) 
issued at 316 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

Forecast issues this period include increasing chances for showers 
and thunderstorms Wednesday night and Thursday with a significant 
cool down Friday into Saturday. Some patchy frost will be possible 
Saturday morning. 

Models are in general agreement in bringing an h500 trough from the 
northwest US into the northern plains Wednesday night and 
Thursday. This will bring increasing chances for showers and 
thunderstorms across west and central North Dakota Wednesday night 
and continuing central and eastern North Dakota Thursday. As the 
h500 trough merges into a cool upper low over central Canada...the 
associated h850 flow with this cold upper flow brings in pretty 
unseasonably cool air with even a 1030mb surface high across the 
Manitoba/Saskatchewan border. Fridays highs will be in the 50s 
north and 60s south and by Saturday morning widespread temperatures 
in the middle to upper 30s with patchy frost possible. Temperatures 
will return to more normal by Monday and Tuesday with highs into 
the 70s. 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening) 
issued at 943 PM CDT Tuesday may 26 2015 

For the 27 00 UTC taf issuance...have removed the mention of 
thunder and vcsh at taf sites. Possible late night 
shower/thunderstorm activity is expected to remain northeast of 
Minot. Otherwise VFR conditions tonight with light winds. Could be 
some patchy fog again late but not confident enough at this time 
to mention in any one taf. Another low pressure system will move 
into the southwest Wednesday morning and spread north and east. 
Brought a mention of thunderstorms to kdik around 18 UTC and kisn 
around 22 UTC.
