NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
404 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure will remain centered over the southern 
rockies into early next week. Abundant moisture along with weak 
weather disturbances moving through the region will generate 
showers and thunderstorms through midweek. An broad upper low 
will move through the eastern Great Basin late week. 


&& 


Short term (through 06z wed)...short wave that moved south to 
north through the area over last 24 hours has sheared over 
southern Idaho today. Remnant short wave energy is now limited to 
a weak near stationary disturbance over northwestern 
Nevada/southwestern Oregon. A deformation axis remains in place 
over southern Idaho but is weakening. Passage of the short wave 
across the north early this morning has left most areas along the 
Wasatch front/back quite suppressed...and although precipitable water remains in 
excess of 2 Standard deviations and SBCAPE is pushing 1500 j/kg 
middle level lapse rates are quite meager limiting updraft potential 
further. This can be noted in shallow convection over the 
northwest deserts being only loosely organized at this time. Deeper 
convection should actually be more expansive across the 
south/southeast this evening where instability/precipitable water are less but the 
environment is less suppressed. 


Convective potential will transition to a more typical diurnal 
regime overnight tonight through tomorrow morning with activity 
waning until the afternoon. Aforementioned disturbance over 
northwestern Nevada is prognosticated to slide east along the Utah/Nevada border 
tomorrow afternoon/evening and could provide a bit of forcing aiding 
maintenance of scattered convection over the far northern valley 
areas...but largely convection should remain primarily terrain 
based both tomorrow and Tuesday. 


Temperatures through the period are expected to remain near 
normal...much cooler than the last few weeks. 


Long term (after 06z wednesday)...ECMWF...GFS...and Canadian Gem 
are in better agreement in the medium range with the handling of the 
upper level low during the latter half of the upcoming week. Closed 
upper low is prognosticated to be just off of the central California coast at 1200 
UTC Wednesday and then drift slowly over central California through 0000 UTC Friday 
before ejecting across the Great Basin. Although there are some 
differences in the details the medium range models are now very 
similar in this regard. The gefs is also supportive of this solution 
which adds confidence in this evolution of the upper level pattern. 


Given the confidence in the slower solution believe that region will 
be slower to dry out. This evolution keeps well formed middle level 
deformation axis in place stretching from SW Oregon through southern Idaho 
on Wednesday. With residual moisture in place have expanded probability of precipitation on Wednesday. 
Medium range models still want to dry out the airmass significantly 
on Thursday...but feel that it may be a bit overdone. Although only real 
threat for valley convection will likely be the far north...believe 
that there will be the threat for storms over the higher terrain 
nearly statewide and have expanded probability of precipitation there a bit. 


On Friday...upper low moves into Nevada before becoming an open wave and 
lifting to the northeast. Although middle level southerly flow is not 
as strong in the most recent run and the airmass is not quite as 
dry...will still need to keep a close eye on potential fire weather 
impacts toward of the end of the week. In current medium range 
runs...combination of curvature effects and the left-exit region of 
the upper level jet yield a broad area of upper level divergence 
over much of western and southern Utah on Friday. In addition... 
upper low just to the west of Utah results in a baggy baroclinic 
zone lifting north through the state...with modest cold advection in 
its wake. Given this potential...as well as the aforementioned upper 
level support...feel that there is a decent threat of convective 
development...even with limited moisture associated with the 
system...and have added a mention to many areas across the state. 
Drier air should be left across the region behind this system. The 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS then keep the upper level ridge centered over the 
south central and southeastern U.S. Which keeps Utah under a dry 
southwest flow aloft through the weekend. The end result is that a 
drier weekend still looks to be on track. 


Temperatures through the period are expected to be near normal. 


&& 


Aviation...winds at the kslc terminal will remain northwesterly 
until about 03z then return to southeasterly. There is a 20 percent 
chance that a passing shower could bring a brief period of gusty 
erratic winds until about 03z. VFR conditions will prevail. 


&& 


Fire weather...bulk of the district remains suppressed this 
afternoon in wake of an upper level disturbance that moved south 
to north through the area over the last 24 hours. Scattered 
showers and a few storms do exist across the southern mountains 
and northwest deserts however. The rule of thumb for much of the 
week will be a daily shower/storm threat each afternoon 
evening...with a gradual drying trend and slight downturn in 
wetting rain potential. 


The pattern shift that has been advertised for the latter 
half of the week is looking less likely at this time. 
Rather than having a prolonged period of dry and gusty 
conditions...an upper low now looks to move through the 
eastern Great Basin Friday. 


&& 


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