Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Bismarck ND 349 am CDT sun Oct 26 2014 Short term...(today and tonight) issued at 330 am CDT sun Oct 26 2014 A warm front is forecast to move east across the state today...followed by a weak cold front. This will result in another day of above average temperatures. Currently...surface high pressure extended from Lake Winnipeg southeastward across Minnesota as a low pressure trough continued to develop in the Lee of The Rockies from Alberta across central/eastern Montana to eastern Wyoming. This has set up a rather tight surface gradient resulting in a southeast wind flow across the state...with the strongest southeast winds in western North Dakota at this time. At upper levels...a longwave trough over the West Coast early this morning is forecast to move into the Western Plains today. The surface low in southern Alberta will develop/move eastward into southern Saskatchewan. The warm front extending from the low is is forecast to enter western North Dakota later this morning...reaching the James Valley later this afternoon. Good warm advection ahead and along the warm front will allow temperatures to rise into the lower 60s north and lower 70s south. The warm front will be followed by a weak cold front that is forecast to enter western North Dakota this afternoon. Tonight the upper level trough will approach the western Dakotas as the surface low moves into southern Manitoba. This will act to bring a stronger secondary cold front southeast across Montana tonight and approaches the North Dakota border by daybreak Monday. Have kept a slight chance of rain showers in the far west later tonight...as the main energy from the upper trough is behind the cold front. Long term...(monday through saturday) issued at 330 am CDT sun Oct 26 2014 Upper trough/low works its way over the region on Monday as cold air continues to pour into the region behind progressing front. Most of the lift with this system will remain to the north...though expect some precipitation to develop over portions of our area from west to east as the system works through. Greatest chances will remain near the Canadian border. Pressure gradient tightens...particularly over southwestern North Dakota...while ample mixing develops resulting in gusty winds. Will have to give this another look on subsequent shifts to see if a headline will be necessary. Into the evening system continues its slow easterly track as cold air continues to push in which may result in some snow...particularly over northern areas. If any does occur expect it to be very light. On Tuesday...trough continues its eastward progression with precipitation chances tapering through the morning. Temperatures will be on the chilly side...with most locations below average. Mainly quiet weather is expected through the remainder of the week as ridge builds over the western Continental U.S.. temperatures will remain near to slightly below average through Thursday. Towards the end of the week ridge works its way east. This will bring a warming trend...though still some question on whether the warming will start Friday or Saturday. Either way conditions look to be dry for Halloween. && Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Sunday night) issued at 1249 am CDT sun Oct 26 2014 VFR conditions expected at all terminal locations through 06z Sunday night. A warm front in central Montana at 06z will move east and reach kisn/kdik around 12z-15z...when winds will become south...then southwest. The warm front will continue pushing east across the state. By 18z the initial cold front with westerly winds reaches kisn/kdik...moving east across the state this afternoon. Secondary push of much colder air takes place late Sunday night and early Monday which will bring stronger northwest winds beyond this current taf cycle. && Bis watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Short term...jv long term...jjs aviation...jv
