NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
546 am MST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis...an upper level trough will linger over the Great 
Basin today through tonight then shift east late Tuesday. A 
drying and warming trend will follow for the remainder of the 
week. 


&& 


Short term (thru 00z thu)...heavy precipitation event under way across 
the County Warning Area in the very moist southerly flow east of an upper low just 
off the Southern California coast. Good jet support has assisted the warm 
front lifting through the County Warning Area overnight and water amounts over an 
inch in the last 12 hours are showing up on some of the snotel 
sites in the southern mountains 


The airmass this morning is about as warm as it is forecast to 
get in this event and it will stay warm through midday before cooler 
air starts spreading in from the west. 


Under this mild airmass valley impacts so far appear to be very 
dependent on snow intensity with the few cams under lights 
showing roads becoming snow covered during periods of heavier snow 
and melting off as soon as intensities drop off. Expect this 
pattern to persist into this morning with even less impact once 
weak solar heating starts filtering through the clouds and surface 
temperatures start to climb. As a result have not expanded the 
winter weather advisories northward at this time. 


The California low ejects through Nevada today and into western Utah late today. This 
sends the moisture plume and the jet off to the east by late afternoon 
with precipitation tapering off south and east. The upper trough does 
enhance precipitation across western Utah through this evening and with colder air 
moving in precipitation should become all snow and start accumulating in 
the western valleys. 


Models indicate a lull in the precipitation overnight before it starts up 
again before daybreak Tuesday as a last cold short wave drops into 
the mean trough. This mainly impacts the northern mountains and northwestern valleys 
in the morning then shifts into southwestern Utah in the afternoon but weakens as 
it heads south. This falls as snow and the colder airmass would 
allow it to stick to all surfaces likely impacting the commute for 
the Wasatch front and back Tuesday morning. 


The whole trough moves east by Wednesday morning with a chilly but dry day 
expected Wednesday. 


&& 


Long term (after 00z thursday)...model trends remain similar run to 
run regarding the potential of a weak wave grazing northern Utah 
Friday night into Saturday. Primary difference between the GFS 
/no wave/...and the European model (ecmwf) /grazing wave/ are subtle differences of 
the West Coast ridge axis placement and evolution of short wave 
energy out of the Gulf of Alaska. Continue to maintain a dry forecast as 
even the European model (ecmwf) is quite benign west/this feature...and neither model 
has budged that much in depiction over the last few runs. 


Overall...the most notable changes to sensible weather in the long 
term will be a net drying and warming trend for all areas across the 
forecast area middle/late week. A return to well above normal temperatures 
can be expected by next weekend as the return of a large scale 
West Coast ridge looks to maintain a very dry and stable 
northwesterly flow aloft. 


&& 


Aviation...ceilings at the kslc terminal are expected to continue to 
lower this morning with sub 6000ft above ground level levels prevailing again by 
16z. Light and variable to light southeast winds are expected to 
become prevailing northwest between 15-17z...with light rain 
showers becoming more likely this afternoon. 


A threat of accumulating snow will increase after 03z 
tonight...with potential for some accumulating slush on untreated 
surfaces after 06z. 


&&
