NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
346 PM MDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


Synopsis...a stalled front will remain across central Utah 
through Friday maintaining moisture across the south and drier 
air across the north. This moisture will slowly work its way 
northward during the upcoming weekend and remain in place into 
early next week. 


&& 


Discussion...afternoon analysis indicates a nearly stationary 
front dividing the state from roughly Gandy to Utah County to the 
Uinta Basin. South of this boundary...sufficient moisture remains 
to allow for the development of convection. Storm motions are 
fairly decent today but training of cells or collisions of outflow 
boundaries/cell mergers could help to produce flash flooding in 
the more flood prone areas of southern Utah including normally dry 
washes...Slick Rock areas and small streams in steep terrain. 
North of the boundary...dry and cooler conditions remain in place. 


This boundary will further weaken overnight. The deepest moisture 
will remain south of the weakened boundary again Saturday. An 
upper level low diving south across the upper Midwest will help to 
amplify the ridge across the western United States. This will help 
to bring deeper moisture northward Sunday afternoon. 


A disturbance moving north on the western periphery of the ridge 
will help to increase the threat of convection Monday afternoon 
into Tuesday. Have increased probability of precipitation to coincide with this increase 
in lift across the area Monday afternoon into Tuesday afternoon. 
Expect subsidence in the wake of this disturbance for many areas 
Wednesday. 


For the forecast beyond Wednesday...small differences between 
models have a fairly large impact on the degree of moisture in the 
area...and thus confidence in the forecast past Wednesday is 
fairly low at this time given model to model variance. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions are expected throughout the evening at 
the slc terminal with some scattered clouds. Northwest winds are 
expected to shift to the southeast between 03z and 05z. 


&& 


Fire weather...a stationary surface boundary remains draped across 
central Utah this afternoon and delineates more stable and dry air 
to the north and deeper moisture to the south. Western valleys have 
been hitting red flag criteria this afternoon due to Bone dry 
surface conditions and gusty southerly winds and a red flag warning 
remains in effect through this evening. 


Have noted scattered shower and thunderstorm developed today with 
focus across central and eastern Utah...more isolated across 
central Utah where a few dry thunderstorms are possible into this 
evening. Decided to issue a Fire Weather Watch for zone 492 in 
west central Utah for tomorrow afternoon/evening as areal coverage of 
mostly dry thunderstorms is expected to increase slightly. This 
threat could continue across zone 492 and possibly portions of 478 
on Sunday but surface moisture should allow storms to trend more 
wet by that time. Will continue to monitor this threat closely. 


An upper level feature will track across western Utah Monday 
spreading deep moisture to all areas...and allowing for a greater 
wetting rain potential with storm activity at that time. 


Winds after today will trend lighter as flow aloft decreases later 
tomorrow into early next week. Outside of localized areas light 
diurnally driven slope flows look to be the norm. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...red flag warning until 9 PM MDT this evening for utz492-495. 


Fire Weather Watch from Saturday afternoon through Saturday 
evening for utz492. 


Wyoming...none.
