NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
338 PM MDT Friday Aug 28 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure will bring a warming and drying trend 
through tomorrow. A weak frontal boundary will cross the area 
Saturday night...followed by a generally dry southwesterly flow 
for much of next week. 


&& 


Short term...scattered convection that has developed over western 
Nevada is expected to gradually spread east over far western Utah 
this evening...though coverage trends will be decreasing as this 
convection translates into a more suppressed environment. Latest 
hrrr indicates full suppression by 03/04z this evening which fits 
the conceptual model as updrafts have formed due to differential 
heating and diurnal circulations over the higher terrain. Loss of 
this will preclude further development during the overnight hours. 


The previously deep closed low off the norcal coast has become 
more progressive as a deeper low over britcol continues its 
southward translation down the coast. Said progressive short wave 
will lift through the pacnw over the next 36 hours displacing the 
ridge and associated axis east of the area tomorrow. This will 
allow a deep southwesterly flow to ramp up across the eastern 
Great Basin. Associated with this wave...700 mb forecasts continue to 
note a weak baroclinic zone translating east through northern 
Nevada tomorrow afternoon that will then spread into northern Utah 
during the evening hours. Ahead of and associated with this area 
of weak lift...middle level moisture convergence should be enough to 
form isolated to widely scattered high based convection across the 
north...and a tightening S-north mslp will aid breezy southwesterly 
winds focused across the western valleys. 700 mb temperature trends will 
continue to climb in this deeply mixed environment and expect the 
warmest temperatures of the period to occur tomorrow...some 5-10 degrees 
above climatology. 


Said baroclinic zone will shift over central Utah tomorrow night 
through Sunday further suppressing the high south and east of the 
area. Will have to monitor potential of moisture convergence along 
and southeast of this boundary for isolated to widely scattered 
convection Sunday...but expect a temperature drop to or a few degrees 
back below climatology will be more notable sensibly north and west of 
the boundary. 


Long term (after 12z monday)...the 700mb baroclinic zone in far 
northern Utah weakens and a dry subsident southwesterly flow 
reinstates itself statewide by Monday afternoon. Global models are 
in comfortable agreement with this pattern persisting through the 
extended forecast...showing a mean trough over the Pacific 
northwest remaining centered well to the north of the County Warning Area. By 
Tuesday winds ramp up and temperatures in the northern half of the 
County Warning Area climb above normals...while the southern half remains a few 
degrees below norms. A modicum of instability may promote 
convection over the highest terrain on Tuesday afternoon. Midlevel 
winds increase further and remain elevated through the week. 


A weak 700 mb baroclinic zone brushes northwest Utah on Wednesday 
followed by an even drier airmass...thus shutting off the moisture 
tap statewide for the remainder of the work week. GFS insinuates a 
series of additional weak baroclinic zones nudging into northern 
Utah after midweek...have thus bumped temperatures down a degree or two 
each day. 


&& 


Aviation...north to northwest winds will continue at the slc 
terminal before shifting to the southeast between 02-04z. 


&& 


Fire weather...isolated high based thunderstorms remain possible 
through this afternoon across far western portions of the 
district and along the mountain spines of central and southern 
Utah. 


High pressure will shift east overnight through tomorrow allowing 
a strengthening southwesterly flow aloft to spread across the 
area. A weak frontal boundary approaching from the northwest 
coupled with the up tick in winds aloft will create breezy 
southerly surface winds across the western valleys tomorrow 
afternoon...and coupled with drying low levels will combine to 
produce locally critical fire weather conditions across portions 
of fire weather zones 478..492 and 495. This said fuels as 
reported remain non-critical in those areas. As the frontal 
boundary crosses northern Utah tomorrow afternoon/evening isolated 
to widely scattered high based thunderstorms are expected to form 
and linger into the overnight hours. 


Deep southwesterly flow will remain in place through much of next 
week allowing further drying across the district...and periodically 
breezy conditions during the middle to late week period. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...none. 
Wyoming...red flag warning for wyz 277 from 17z Saturday through 
03z Sunday.
