Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 811 PM MDT Friday Mar 27 2015 Synopsis...high pressure overhead will move off to the east Saturday ahead of a weak storm system. This system will send a cold front into northern Utah Saturday afternoon and south through the area Saturday night. && Discussion...water vapor loop shows a ridge over the intermountain west...with a system running over the ridge across the Pacific northwest. Amdar 400-250mb wind observations show a 100-140kt anticyclonic jet over western Canada into the Mississippi River valley. GOES/GPS/rap/00z slc radiosonde observation indicate the precipitable water value ranges between 0.15-0.25" mountains to 0.30-0.40" most valleys. Blended total precipitable water product indicates an abnormally moist airmass over the northern rockies...and an abnormally dry airmass over the deep southwest. Rap 850-700mb thickness/saturated equivalent potential temperature/streamlines indicate that Utah will be in the thermal ridge overnight ahead of an approaching cold front. The boundary will likely slip into the west desert toward sunrise. Ahead of the boundary temperatures should remain warmer than guidance due to a decently mixed boundary layer. Warmed overnight lows closer to lamp guidance. Also tweaked winds with latest high resolution guidance. Rest unchanged. Previous discussion follows... Strong middle level ridging centered across the Great Basin this afternoon will shift east tonight...downstream from a weak shortwave trough currently approaching the Pacific coast. This wave will move onshore tonight before traversing the northern rockies Saturday. The brunt of this wave will pass well north of the forecast area...with the trailing surface front forecast to cross northern Utah Saturday afternoon before stalling across southern Utah Saturday night. Pre- frontal mixing should be sufficient to once again push temperatures 15 or more degrees above climatology Saturday...which would be encroaching on record territory in a few locations (the record high for kslc Saturday is 77). With limited moisture and weak dynamic support only isolated convection is expected as this feature crosses the north Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening. A portion of this wave is forecast to split as it moves ashore tonight...then gradually cross the southern Great Basin during the day Sunday. This feature will interact with the stalled surface boundary across southern Utah Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening bringing a somewhat better threat for convection...and have raised probability of precipitation across the higher terrain accordingly. Meanwhile somewhat cooler air behind this boundary will bring a modest cooldown to most areas for the latter half of the weekend. Middle level ridging is forecast to rebound across the region Monday with perhaps a small threat for convection across the southern mountains owing to lingering moisture. Ridging will be ongoing at the start of the long term portion of the forecast as a Pacific trough approaches the coast Monday evening. The 12z global models have become fairly consistent with the evolution of this system...bringing the associated cold front across the County Warning Area late Tuesday through Wednesday morning. This is a bit slower than previous runs...so warmed the temperatures for Tuesday for most locations a bit. A majority of the model guidance depicts this front as mainly dry...but felt there was enough dynamics associated with this front to at least increase the risk of precipitation across the higher terrain into the slight category. Both the ec and the GFS depict 700mb temperatures falling to near -10 to -12c Post frontal Wednesday afternoon/evening. Yet another wave embedded in the northern jet will cross the state Thursday. The models are considerably different during this time period...so kept probability of precipitation near climatology for days 6 and 7. Confidence during this portion of the forecast is fairly low. && Aviation...north winds will switch to the southeast at the kslc terminal between 03z and 05z this evening. Winds will increase out of the southeast around sunrise ahead of an approaching cold front. && Slc watches/warnings/advisories... Utah...none. Wyoming...none. && $$ Short term...rogowski/Seaman/loeffelbein aviation...rogowski For more information from National oceanic and atmospheric administration/S National Weather Service visit... http://weather.Gov/saltlakecity (all lower case) For frequently asked questions about the area forecast discussion visit... http://weather.Gov/saltlakecity/general/afd_faqs.Php (all lower case)
