NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
257 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Short term...(this evening through sunday) 
issued at 256 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Breezy dry westerly flow will continue over western and central 
North Dakota this afternoon. Wrap around moisture is generating 
mostly cloudy skies north. The clouds should clear out later this 
afternoon and evening as the low departs to the northeast and 
drier air filters in from the west. The combination of weakening 
winds and clearing skies should allow temperatures to radiate into 
the low to middle 30s by early Sunday morning. 


Another shortwave is forecast to traverse across southern 
Saskatchewan Sunday. Its attendant surface cold front is forecast 
to push through western North Dakota Sunday morning...and through 
central North Dakota Sunday afternoon. The medium range models 
forecast the highest instability to develop along the southern portion 
of the front. However...the greatest upper dynamics will be 
displaced over the northern extent of the front. Given the 
disconnect between the upper forcing and instability...only 
indicated a chance of showers north proximate to the best upper 
forcing...and a slight chance of showers south along the front 
Sunday afternoon. Furthermore...with showalter indices remaining 
well above zero Sunday afternoon...removed the mention of 
thunderstorms along the front. 


As far as temperatures are concerned...strong warm air advection 
ahead of the front should allow for Sunday afternoon highs to 
range from the low to middle 70s along and east of Highway 83. West 
of Highway 83...temperatures should be in the 60s. Dry westerly 
flow will develop once again in the wake of the cold front. This 
is forecast to generate a very high fire danger west Sunday 
afternoon. See fire weather discussion below for more details. 


Long term...(sunday night through saturday) 
issued at 256 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


The highlight of the extended forecast is a potential strong storm 
system to impact the northern plains Tuesday night into Friday. 


The 12 UTC guidance suite continues to depict a strong storm 
system to impact the region Tuesday night into Friday. 
However...details still remain uncertain as run to run consistency 
remains lacking. What is most certain is a chance for 
thunderstorms Tuesday night into Wednesday morning for much of 
western and central North Dakota with a strong low level jet and 
steep middle level lapse rates with the leading impulses out of the 
larger wave across the intermountain west. Severe weather is not 
anticipated at this time. The chance for thunderstorms continues 
Wednesday ahead of the main upper level wave. Uncertainty 
increases Wednesday night into Thursday. The 12 UTC GFS/gefs/Gem 
close off a deep upper level low across the Dakotas...while the 12 
UTC European model (ecmwf) breaks with its previous runs and is much more open and 
progressive with the upper level wave. Followed a bit closer to 
the GFS/gefs/Gem for now given little support in previous runs for 
the 12 UTC European model (ecmwf) solution. However...due expect some inconsistency 
to remain until the wave begins to be sampled by the West Coast 
roabs on Monday. For now...widespread rain could be possible on 
Thursday...potentially transitioning to snow Thursday evening and 
into the night. Will have to continue to monitor closely due to 
hydrologic concerns across the Souris basin.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Sunday afternoon) 
issued at 1206 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


MVFR ceilings over northern North Dakota (kisn-kmot) will gradually 
become VFR from west to east later this afternoon. Otherwise...VFR 
conditions are forecast over central and southern North Dakota 
through the taf period. Gusty westerly winds will continue this 
afternoon...then will gradually become light and variable tonight. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
issued at 256 PM CDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Dry westerly flow will develop behind a cold front over western 
North Dakota Sunday afternoon. The combination of winds 20 to 25 
miles per hour and minimum relative humidity values 25 to 30 percent is forecast to generate 
a GFDI in a low-end "very high" fire danger Sunday...mainly west 
of Highway 83. Fire managers should continue to monitor the latest 
forecasts for any fire weather headlines Sunday.
