NWS Forecaster Discussion
Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 520 am MST Sat Dec 7 2013 Synopsis...the cold winter storm system centered over the western Great Basin will track east across Utah this afternoon through tonight. Widespread snow through Sunday will be followed by very cold temperatures heading into the first half of next week. && Short term (through 00z Tuesday...the cold core upper trough moving into the northern/western Great Basin from the Pacific northwest will continue east into and then across Utah this afternoon through tonight. Light snow has already formed ahead of the trough in the moist warm advection across southern and eastern Utah. This snow will expand and intensify fairly quickly this morning as the moist warm advection strengthens and the exit region of the upper jet works into southwest Utah. The entire region should be in accumulating snows by late morning or early afternoon as the upper trough settles into northeast Nevada. The heaviest snowfall likely to develop across the region around middle to late afternoon as good low-level cold advection moves into northwest Utah. Destabilization of this moist airmass with the arrival of the middle-level trough will bring a period of heavy snow to the mountains and many northern/western valley locations through late tonight. Snow will begin to decrease in both areal coverage and intensity late tonight/early Sunday as the axis of the upper trough tracks off to the east of the forecast area. Showery precipitation will linger in the cold air instability Sunday afternoon. A trialing shortwave moving south-southeast behind the exiting main trough will likely bring short period of snow to the north Sunday evening. A stable northerly flow across the region will keep temperatures bitterly cold heading into the first half of the week. && Long term (after 00z tuesday)...a dry northwesterly flow will develop Monday night and Tuesday...with only far northern Utah retaining enough moisture to potentially allow for mountain showers on Tuesday. Conditions will stabilize even more on Wednesday...as the ridge shifts from the West Coast to over the Great Basin. The ridge axis will likely slide over the County Warning Area by midday Thursday. This rising of heights will also be associated good warm advection aloft Tuesday through Thursday...which should raise mountain temperatures significantly from the bitter cold of the past week. However...any valley warming is likely to be modest in most locations...with inversions expected to set up. While the forecast still indicates a slow warming trend...have tried to keep fairly cold temperatures for both maxes and mins in many basins. Details beyond Thursday are still low confidence...as models continue to have issues on how to to handle the next trough forecast to move through the western Continental U.S.. while details differ...both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS have trended toward digging this trough further south into Baja California...which would result in less precipitation and less mixing for the County Warning Area. Have kept a slight chance of probability of precipitation in the northern half of the County Warning Area for Thursday night...as models still hint at some low level moisture moving into the area with weak forcing. Other than that however...have mostly kept probability of precipitation near or a little below climatology...as models indicate a mean trough moving through the region but little dynamic forcing over Utah. As such...have also tried to keep valley temperatures inverted through the end of the forecast. && Aviation...ceilings will lower at the slc terminal through the morning hours...likely dropping below 7000ft between 13z and 16z. Winds will increase from the south through the morning. There is a 30 percent chance that gusts reach 30 miles per hour or higher...with the most likely timeframe between 14z and 18z. Snow will develop at the terminal later today...with IFR conditions most likely starting between 20z and 23z...but intermittent IFR snow showers could occur as early as 15z. && && Slc watches/warnings/advisories... Utah...Winter Storm Warning until 10 am MST Sunday for utz011>013- 019>021. Winter Storm Warning until 6 PM MST Sunday for utz002>004- 006>010.
