Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
442 am MST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Synopsis...an upper low centered across southern Nevada will 
move south into northwest Mexico this evening. A moist west 
northwest flow aloft across the northern Great Basin will bring 
light precipitation to northern Utah and southwest Wyoming early 
in the upcoming week. 


&& 


Short term (through 00z wednesday)...the stationary upper low 
currently centered on the southern tip of Nevada will move south 
into northwest Mexico in response to the upper ridge nosing into 
the Pacific northwest. This upper ridge will remain a fairly low 
amplitude feature as a series of shortwaves crest the ridge and 
then dig southeast into the central Continental U.S.. 


A broad area of light to moderate valley rain and mountain snow 
persists across much of southern and eastern Utah this morning. 
Moist middle-level southerly flow along the east flank of the upper 
low running over the top of the low-level northeast flow has 
created the large-scale to support the widespread precipitation. The 
middle-level southerly will begin to break down after middle-morning as 
the upper begins to track south and a drier deep layer northerly 
flow develops. Precipitation will end from north to south during the 
day...with precipitation likely ending by early this evening. The current 
Winter Weather Advisory has been left in place with the current 
forecast package...though it will likely be taken down a little 
earlier than the current late afternoon expiration. 


The upper ridge nosing into the northern half of the western 
Continental U.S. Today will remain a relatively low amplitude feature during 
the first half of the upcoming week. A series of fast moving 
shortwave running over the top of the ridge will graze northern Utah 
and southwest Wyoming early in the week. Have bumped probability of precipitation up a bit 
across a broader area of the north owing to sufficient dynamic 
and thermally driven lift and the available Pacific moisture. The 
precipitation type should remain as rain in the valleys...with snow or a 
rain/snow mix in the higher valleys and mountains. Central and 
southern Utah will remain a bit too far south for any precipitation...but 
will see some cloud cover and continued mild temperatures early in 
the week. 


&& 


Long term (after 00z wednesday)...the moist west-northwesterly flow 
continues over the northern portions of the forecast area on Tuesday 
night...though the exact evolution of this set-up heading into 
Wednesday is still uncertain. The GFS has been promoting the idea of 
a shortwave diving into Utah early Wednesday...bringing cold 
advection and an increase in precipitation to the area. Meanwhile...the 
European model (ecmwf) keeps any shortwaves north and east of the area...as the ridge 
begins to build and shift over the Great Basin in a quicker 
fashion...which promotes warm advection over northern Utah. 


Despite these fairly significant differences in details...lingering 
moisture causes both global models to keep continued precipitation 
over the Utah/Idaho border Tuesday night and Wednesday...so have 
increased probability of precipitation a bit through this period. Otherwise...the forecast 
is a compromise between these two solutions...with temperatures and snow 
levels tilted a little toward the colder GFS. 


Models re-converge for Wednesday night and Thursday...with a higher 
amplitude ridge shifting over the forecast area by Thursday 
afternoon. With increasing southwesterly flow and strong warm 
advection associated with this ridge...have kept temperatures quite a bit 
above seasonal normals for Thursday and Friday. 


Heading into the weekend...models agree that the ridge will likely 
flatten across the west...which could allow some additional moisture 
and weak shortwaves to migrate across the forecast area...especially 
Saturday or Saturday night. Have pushed probability of precipitation a little higher and 
closer to climatology until the details of this wave gets sorted 
out. Looking past day 7...both the GFS and ec push a shortwave into 
the Great Basin on Monday...with a genuine cold front on our 
doorstep by 00z Tuesday. While this storm does not look like the 
strongest thing in the world and is all the way out in day 10...it 
is at least interesting to see a legitimate progressive trough in 
the models again. 


&& 


Aviation...ceilings at the slc terminal are expected to rise above 
7000ft between 12z and 16z...with only a slight chance that ceilings 
remain below that level through 18z. Northerly winds will persist at 
the terminal through the day...and could even become gusty at times 
after 17z.
