NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
408 PM MDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Update...added isolated mention of thunderstorms to about the southern 1/4 of 
the County Warning Area for the rest of this afternoon and this evening as the moisture 
over southern Utah has set off a few small cells over Washington Colorado and 
near Lake Powell that are not tied to the terrain. Expect this 
activity to expand a bit through early evening then tend to diminish. 
There is a possibility that a few of these could persist overnight 
as the deeper moisture to our S continues to seep north. 


&& 


Synopsis...a ridge of high pressure will remain over the region 
through the end of the week...then shift eastward early next week. 
Moisture will slowly increase across southern Utah through 
Friday...then spread slowly northward late in the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion...an upper-level ridge axis extends from the Southern 
Plains westward through Utah and Nevada into northern California. 
Return flow around the ridge has lifted precipitable waters  above 1.0" over areas 
southwest of this axis...including far southern Utah...but 
conditions are much drier further north. This afternoon and 
evening...isolated showers and storms are expected over the higher 
terrain across the south while clear skies prevail elsewhere. This 
setup will persist through Saturday as an approaching cutoff low 
offshore gradually turns flow more southerly and allows moisture to 
creep northward over the southern half of the County Warning Area. 


On Sunday...both the ec and GFS develop a vorticity maximum over 
southern Utah in an area of enhanced convection. While the GFS hints 
at this feature propagating into northern Utah and increasing probability of precipitation 
somewhat...the ec seems to go too far with its development. For 
now...the forecast leans toward drier conditions given low 
confidence. 


Next week...models are struggling to resolve the timing and phasing 
of a cutoff low along the California coast an upper-level trough 
dropping southward off the British Columbia coast. The ec solutions 
results in a more westerly flow component whereas the GFS builds a 
ridge and very warm temperatures overhead. Both cases suggest 
primarily dry conditions over northern Utah...but the GFS solution 
would allow for moisture to creep into the southern County Warning Area 
and aid in convection south and east of the mountains. 




&& 


Aviation...northerly winds will prevail at the slc terminal 
through around 04z before returning to southerly. Otherwise...expect 
VFR conditions under mostly clear skies through the night. 


&& 


Fire weather...the potential of isolated high based thunderstorms 
and dry lightning will increase through the upcoming weekend from 
south to north. Moisture currently along and south of the Utah/Arizona 
border will gradually spread north beginning Saturday ahead of a 
developing weak disturbance that will move through the district 
Sunday into Monday. Moisture is expected to remain primarily at the 
middle and upper levels during that time owing to the potential of some 
dry lightning strikes and a high likelihood of gusty winds with any 
storms that form. Areal coverage of these isolated storms is 
expected to be greatest Sunday into Monday. Southwesterly flow aloft 
will spread in behind this disturbance Tuesday allowing both a 
further drying trend and a net increase of southerly surface winds 
for the middle week period.
