NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
832 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Update... 
issued at 825 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Band of snow moving through central North Dakota has a bit more 
substance to it. Will update to likely probability of precipitation with up to an inch 
accumulate for the morning hours. 


Update issued at 630 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


For early morning update have increased precipitation chances 
through this morning across much of the area as band of light snow 
affiliated with weak short wave sliding through works its way 
southeast through the area. Most snow should be gone by mid-day. 
Have also increased cloud cover throughout the area. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 341 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Main concern this forecast package is the area of snow moving out of 
the James River Valley and the lingering Winter Weather Advisory. 
Attention then turns to light snow today in the southwest. 


Currently...the low pressure system associated with yesterday's snow 
was over the border of SD/NE/IA. The northwestern extent of the wrap 
around moisture and light snow was moving southward/exiting the 
James River Valley in North Dakota - near Oakes. North winds of 
around 20 miles per hour were observed at 3 am CST...and the threat of blowing 
or drifting snow was waning. Therefore will end the Winter Weather 
Advisory for the counties around Jamestown and south by 4 am CST. 


A weak upper level impulse moving south across southern 
Saskatchewan/Manitoba and into northern North Dakota was associated 
with some light snow/flurries...and expect this area of 
precipitation to move south across western and central North Dakota 
this morning. 


Meanwhile an Arctic high pressure center was over central 
Saskatchewan and Manitoba...and temperatures there were around 20-25 
below zero where skies were clear. This high is forecast to move 
southeast and settle over the Red River valley at the 
Dakotas/Minnesota border by daybreak Thanksgiving morning. Clearing 
skies over eastern portions of central North Dakota will keep 
temperatures in the single digits above zero during the day 
today...and allow temperatures to drop to 5 to 10 below zero tonight. 


Western North Dakota will be on the western edge of the Arctic high 
and be more influenced by the cloud cover associated with the 
Lee-side low pressure over the Front Range. The baroclinic zone over 
the Front Range extends to the far southwest corner of North 
Dakota...and the chance of light snow remains for much of the day 
today and into tonight. Temperatures today should rise into the 
teens in the southwest...and lower 20s far southwest under the 
blanket of clouds. This cloud cover will act to keep temperatures 
tonight above zero in the western part of the state...even remaining 
in the teens above zero in the far southwest. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 341 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


On Thanksgiving day...warm front lifts through the area with the 
greatest isentropic lift developing from northwest North Dakota 
towards the James River Valley through the day lifting northerly 
towards evening. This will keep the greatest snow chances mainly 
over northern North Dakota where around 2-3 inches will be possible. 
The main concern at this point is where the rain/snow line will form 
along with the freezing rain threat as the warm front lifts through 
the area. Latest soundings/guidance suggest that any freezing rain 
should remain South/West of highways 2 and 52 in areas of less 
lift...though still enough to produce precipitation. Expect any 
accumulation should be quite light...though could be enough to 
possibly cause some travel problems. 


On Friday...surface low shifts from the Lee of the northern rockies 
towards the northern plains through the day into the evening hours 
while upper flow starts to shift more westerly with a variety of 
weak impulses sliding through. Warmer airmass remains over the area 
bringing a sharp temperature contrast between the north central and 
southwest parts of the state. Low precipitation chances remain mainly over 
northern areas through the day...spreading south in the evening as 
low shifts through. Still some concern about freezing rain mainly 
over far southern areas where some warmer air aloft remains. 


For the weekend into early next week...cold front drops through the 
area on Saturday which will bring some frigid conditions to the area 
through the remainder of the weekend as a surface high settles in. 
Some snow may develop on Saturday with the front passing...while dry 
conditions are expected by Sunday. Temperatures are then expected to 
rebound again early in the work week as surface high shifts east and 
a low starts developing to the Lee of The Rockies bringing warm 
southerly low level flow. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning) 
issued at 825 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Conditions generally VFR kisn-kmot-kjms as high pressure moves 
south. MVFR to IFR in clouds and snow from kdik- kbis as weak 
upper level wave moves south...then improving to VFR at kbis in 
the afternoon. Kdik likely to remain MVFR or low VFR through the 
afternoon in weak up slope flow.
