NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
407 PM MDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis...an upper low moving out of the Pacific northwest will 
impact much of Utah through Thursday. High pressure will 
strengthen across the region late in the week through the upcoming 
weekend resulting in a warming and drying trend. 






&& 


Short term (through 06z sunday)...an upper low pressure system is 
spinning over Idaho this afternoon...with the southern portions of 
the trough impacting Utah and southwest Wyoming. This trough has 
helped initiate thunderstorms across the northern two thirds of 
the forecast area...with some of these storms becoming 
severe. Large hail has been reported...as well as a couple funnel 
cloud reports near the Uinta Basin. Effective bulk shear is not 
all that impressive...generally 20-25 knots...but some of the 
stronger cells have been in areas with small analyzed pockets of 
30-40 knots of shear. 


Good instability will likely persist into the evening 
hours...with some stronger cells likely to move into Tooele and 
Box Elder counties from Nevada. Lowered probability of precipitation a bit between 06z and 
12z Thursday...as most models have showers calming down during the 
overnight hours...but showers will likely increase again Thursday 
morning across northern Utah as the low drops into the area. 
Severe storms could be possible again Thursday afternoon as the 
trough axis passes through the County Warning Area...though showers may end 
earlier than usual with the trough moving to the east shortly 
after 00z Friday. 


The trough finally exits the region through the day Friday...with 
a shortwave ridge building over the Great Basin. This will begin a 
warming and drying trend heading into the weekend...with 
temperatures rising above seasonal normals by Saturday afternoon. 




Long term (after 06z sunday)... 


Significant warming and drying trend continues during the second 
half of the weekend into early next week with the ridge centering 
overhead Sunday. Storm coverage will continue to thin out and become 
relegated to the mountains. 


Southerly winds become gusty late Sunday afternoon through early 
next week as the ridge shifts east of The Rockies. By midweek the 
next closed low traverses the northern rockies...increasing 
shower/thunderstorm coverage across the north. Expecting 
temperatures to cool to or just below normal with the passage of a 
cool front by midweek. 


&& 


Aviation...northerly winds are expected to prevail at the 
slc terminal through about 03z then shift to southeasterly. Showers 
will be increasing in coverage in the area through the rest of this 
afternoon and into this evening. VFR conditions will prevail but 
ceilings could dip to or below 6000 feet with passing showers and gusty 
erratic winds are also possible. Showers could become more frequent 
after about 05-06z with prevailing ceilings at or below 6000 feet and brief MVFR 
possible in heavier rain. 


&& 


Fire weather...the rest of today and tomorrow will be warm and 
fairly dry across the south...while the north remains cool and 
moist. The best chance for a wetting rain is also across the north. 
Showers and storms increase in coverage through the remainder of 
this afternoon. It should remain active across the north this 
evening...then again tomorrow as well. The strongest activity will 
bring a chance for cloud to ground lightning...gusty/erratic 
winds...and small hail. 


The pattern shifts Friday through the weekend as a ridge builds in. 
Expect very warm conditions and a drying trend across all of Utah. 
The chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms will thin each 
day and be relegated to the mountains for the most part. Southerly 
winds will become gusty Sunday...increasing through 
Tuesday...increasing the likelihood of seeing critical meteorological 
fire weather conditions into early next week.
