NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
1002 am MDT Friday Aug 22 2014 


Synopsis...a cold trough will impact primarily northern Utah as 
it moves through the area this afternoon and Saturday. Another 
trough will impact the area early next week before high pressure 
returns for the latter part of the week. 






&& 


Discussion...a deepening trough is moving through the Pacific 
northwest this morning...with most of Utah and southwest Wyoming 
still in the southwesterly flow warm sector out ahead of this 
storm. The southern edge of this storm has already begun to impact 
far northern Utah...with mostly cloudy skies and some light 
precipitation over the area. Clouds and isolated showers are also 
lingering in the southeastern quadrant of Utah...as the remnants 
of a Pacific low are sliding through Arizona today. That low 
should eject out of the region this evening...with most of the 
associated precipitation today staying over western Colorado and 
New Mexico. 


The trough coming out of the Pacific northwest should impact 
northern and central Utah in earnest this afternoon and 
evening. Models have sped up just a bit compared to yesterdays 
runs...with the surface cold front prognosticated to move through the 
Wasatch front in the late afternoon...and the best chance for 
widespread moderate precipitation in the evening hours. Showers 
should continue into Saturday morning as the middle-level cold pool 
slides over the Utah/Idaho border...then showers will likely taper 
off Saturday afternoon as the trough axis moves over Wyoming and 
Colorado by 00z Sunday. 


Updated the forecast this morning primarily to increase probability of precipitation for 
this afternoon and evening...as confidence continues to increase 
in the strength and precipitation field of this trough. Also 
updated the sky cover...increasing it across the north and 
southeast through today...and decreasing clouds across the 
southwest. No further updates are anticipated this morning. 


&& 


Aviation...southeast winds at the slc terminal this morning will 
gradually increase in strength...becoming gusty after about 16 or 
17z. Winds will shift to the northwest between 22z and 00z. Ceilings 
will lower this afternoon...dropping below 7000ft between 22z and 
00z. Rain showers this afternoon will become heavier after 
00z...with periods of MVFR conditions expected between 00z and 06z. 


&& 


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