NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
502 am MST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


Synopsis...warm dry high pressure will persist across the Great 
Basin into Saturday. 


&& 


Short term (thru 00z mon)...the upper ridge axis is centered 
near the Utah/Nevada border early this morning. Cirrus streaming 
through the ridge is increasing across northern Utah and will overspread 
the County Warning Area as the day GOES on. 


The short wave passing to the north has kept enough of a southerly 
surface gradient across the County Warning Area to keep the northwestern and west central 
valleys fairly well mixed with current temperatures still in the 40s in 
many areas. The airmass under the ridge is forecast to warm 
several degrees c from yesterday and many areas will stay 
sufficiently well mixed for this to be reflected at the surface. 
The only possible hindrance would be if high clouds get thick 
enough to block the sun and I do expect this at times...especially 
north. So have kept temperatures today near yesterdays readings but have 
warmed the south somewhat. 


Expect the well above normal temperatures to continue on Friday as the 
ridge axis shifts east and southwesterly flow increases a bit over the County Warning Area 
keeping inversions at Bay. 


Models disagree on how they handle the cold air intrusion into the 
pacnw and northern rockies this weekend mostly due to how they handle a 
closed low in the eastern Pacific. The ec keeps this feature farther west 
and digs the cold air down the coast initially on Sat while the 
GFS has the low a little closer sending the cold air S inland through 
the northern rockies. This sends a cold front through northern Utah on Sat while 
the ec holds it to our west. The ec eventually sends the cold air 
into Utah but not until sun while the GFS is already pushing the 
boundary back north as a warm front. 


This run of the ec is an outlier with the GFS and ensemble mean 
similar to each other. However the ec has a good track record for 
catching changes early so am not willing to completely discount 
it. So have nudged the forecast somewhat towards that solution but 
confidence is not very high. 


&& 


Long term (after 00z monday)...global models continue to disagree 
on the extent of cold air intrusion into Utah by Sunday 
evening...with European model (ecmwf) 700 mb temperatures running about 5 degrees c 
colder than the GFS at this time. This said...both models render 
continued precipitation into Sunday evening with the ec spreading it 
further into central Utah. Have thus nudged grids slightly toward 
the ec solution in both temperature and extent of probability of precipitation Sunday night 
into Monday. Continuing the idea of a valley Rain/Mountain snow 
event with snow levels lowering a notch to 6 kft. 


Further model disagreement extends into midweek regarding the 
evolution of a Pacific trough...with the GFS pitching an ejected 
shortwave into Utah Tuesday into Wednesday. The ec is bereft of said 
wave...solely suggesting the development of a cutoff low stalling 
west of 130w...leaving the state high and dry. Have thus primarily 
reduced midweek probability of precipitation from likely to chance categories...keeping 
trend of valley Rain/Mountain snow throughout. 


&& 


Aviation...southerly winds will continue at the slc terminal 
through this morning. Winds may become light and variable between 
19-22z...with a 30 percent chance of developing a northeasterly 
flow. No significant issues with prevailing VFR conditions under 
patchy high clouds. 


&& 


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