Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
445 am MDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis...a cold front approaching Utah will generate strong 
southerly winds today. The front will cross the state Sunday 
through Sunday night ushering in a colder airmass. 




&& 


Short term (through 00z wednesday)...early morning water vapor 
imagery and objective analysis depicts a robust shortwave trough 
approaching the Pacific coast near 130w...while downstream a deep 
layer southwesterly flow extends across the Great Basin/Colorado 
plateau region. As this trough moves inland today...a tightening 
southerly gradient coupled with strengthening flow aloft will 
yield very windy conditions across the western valleys by 
afternoon...with gusts approaching 50 miles per hour. Expanded the going Wind 
Advisory into zone 3...as the Tooele Valley and portions of the sl 
valley tend to gust strongly in these flow regimes. 


Meanwhile a very mild airmass resides across the forecast 
area...with 700mb temperatures currently near 10c per rap analysis. With 
strengthening southerly flow deep mixing is once again 
anticipated...and although the airmass is forecast to cool a bit 
by afternoon...near record temperatures are once again expected at 
kslc. 


The Pacific trough is forecast to lift northeast through the 
Pacific northwest and northern Great Basin this afternoon through 
tonight. The associated surface front is expected to cross 
northern Utah overnight...bringing a chance for showers to 
northern Utah. In the wake of this boundary there may be a lull in 
precipitation along and south of I-80 until the upper trough axis 
swings through the area late Sunday afternoon/Sunday 
evening...with snow levels falling below 7 kft during this time. 
Any snow accumulation is expected to remain minor. 


Rising heights in the wake of this wave will bring and end to 
precipitation Sunday night. A cool airmass will linger across the 
region Monday...and if skies remain mostly clear Monday night 
outlying areas of northern Utah may experience a hard freeze Tuesday 
morning. 


&& 


Long term (after 00z wednesday)...both the 00z ec and 00z GFS have 
continued the trend of shifting the jet further north...bringing the 
associated zone of warm air advection north of the County Warning Area into central 
Idaho. This shift will likely keep precipitation north of the border 
late Tuesday into Wednesday. There is a slight chance of a few showers 
right along the Idaho/Utah border Wednesday as the ridge over the 
eastern Pacific begins to amplify in response to the approaching low 
moving across the Gulf of Alaska. 


This ridge will build into the area Wednesday through at least Friday. 
Both the 00z GFS and the 00z ec continue to develop a fairly robust 
trough off the Pacific coast Friday into Saturday. There is a large 
model spread with the evolution of this system as it pushes into the 
California coast. Started introducing near climatology probability of precipitation Saturday in 
response to the higher than average chance of a trough impacting the 
area in some form. 


&& 


Aviation...southerly winds will become gusty at the slc terminal 
between 12-15z this morning and remain strong through the day. Wind 
gusts in excess of 40 kts are possible this afternoon and evening. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...Wind Advisory from noon today to midnight MDT tonight for utz003- 
005-015-016. 


Wyoming...none.
