NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
1012 PM MDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis...a weak upper level low pressure system will slowly 
track south to north across the region tonight through early 
Monday. A drier southwesterly flow will follow for midweek. 


&& 


Short term (until 12z wednesday)...animated water vapor imagery 
beginning to suggest that a consolidated upper low is forming 
across central Utah late this evening. This development fits with 
the model guidance which brings this feature from central Utah 
into northern Utah later tonight/early Monday. Deep layer moisture 
and solid dynamic lift should bring some precipitation across the north 
through at least Monday morning. Residual moisture trailing the 
upper low will likely fuel diurnal convection across southern and 
central Utah Monday afternoon and early evening. 


High pressure aloft will settle into Utah by Tuesday...then shift 
off to the east midweek. A significantly drier southwest flow 
aloft will follow the passing ridge beginning late Tuesday. 


Previous long term (after 12z wednesday)...the subtropical ridge 
axis centered over the Arizona/nm border subtly shifts eastward on 
Wednesday as a low amplitude trough sneaks toward northern 
Utah...promoting a relatively dry southwesterly flow aloft. A weak 
shortwave embedded within the flow accompanied by increasing precipitable water 
will provide ample dynamics to encourage afternoon and evening 
convection in northern Utah. This feature also cools down 7h 
temperatures a few degrees... delivering temperatures about 5 degrees 
below seasonal norms for the northern half of the state. Have 
lowered appropriate Thursday maximum temperatures a bit to reflect this. 
Lingering instability over the uintas may be the only chance for a 
dollop of convective activity on Thursday afternoon. 


Friday temperatures warm rapidly ahead of an encroaching and deepening low 
pressure system swinging into California. Models diverge at this 
point on timing and impact of this low as it progresses toward Utah. 
The GFS has remained staunch in delivering precipitation into the County Warning Area by 
Friday...while the European model (ecmwf) remains slower...less moist and less 
extensive in coverage. In either case...expecting midlevel southwest 
winds to ramp up by Friday evening across much of the state. Have 
introduced probability of precipitation in southern Utah by Friday 18z and extended them a 
bit further north on Saturday to gently nudge toward GFS solution. 


Drier air rapidly replaces the exiting system Saturday into 
Sunday...bringing a zonal upper level flow and quiet end to the 
weekend. 


&& 


Aviation...surface high pressure over central Utah and a 
southeast flow aloft will maintain south-southeast winds the kslc 
terminal through the night. An upper low moving north across the 
state will bring showers back into the terminal area after 06z. 
The best chance for rain will exist between 08z and 15z. VFR 
conditions will prevail...though ceilings could dip down to 
around 7000 to 8000 feet in precipitation. 


&& 


Fire weather...a weather disturbance is tracking along the 
Utah/Nevada border this afternoon...allowing deep moisture to 
spread into the southern two-thirds of Utah. Scattered to numerous 
showers and thunderstorms have developed in this moist and 
unstable airmass...and the focus of convection will shift 
northward this evening as the disturbance continues 
northward...then cuts over northern Utah tonight and tomorrow. 
There is a chance of wetting rain with any of these showers and 
thunderstorms. With the northward movement of the 
disturbance...drier air will move back into the district from the 
south tonight through Tuesday. Under the influence of the 
wave...scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue over 
northern Utah tomorrow before coverage decrease Tuesday under weak 
high pressure. Southerly winds will begin to increase Tuesday and 
Wednesday as another trough begins to approach the area. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...none. 
Wyoming...none.
