NWS Forecaster Discussion

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 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 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
