Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
246 am MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis...a dry and mild southwesterly flow will give way to a 
Pacific cold front today. Dry and mild southwest flow will return 
for Thursday and Friday. 


&& 


Short term (through 12z friday)... 
water vapor loop shows an ejecting wave approaching from northern 
California. Amdar 400-250mb wind observations reveal a cyclonic 
90- 115kt jet off the Pacific northwest coast. GOES/GPS/rap/00z 
radiosonde observation indicate the precipitable water value ranges between 0.25" 
northeast mountains...to 0.75" most valleys. 


Think probability of precipitation may be on the high side for the wastach front this 
morning but didnt feel confident enough to lower from likely to 
chance category. 


Expect the cold front to pass around 15z at Salt Lake City. Rap 850- 
700mb thickness and 850mb saturated equivalent potential 
temperature suggests that the thermal ridge is beginning to shift 
east at this time. Expect the boundary to slow and begin to stall 
across central or southern Utah this afternoon with loss of upper 
support. 


Precipitable water values are greater than +2 Standard deviations 
for this time of year. This should help aid in shower development 
despite much of the colder air aloft remaining across Idaho and 
eventually the northern rockies. 


Snow levels look to lower to about 9500ft today. This could have 
some impact on the Mirror Lake Highway in the Uinta 
Mountains...where snowfall could amount to 2-4" on a snowboard. 
Roads are warmer and with much of the event during the 
daytime...solar insolation should also help to counteract impacts 
except perhaps during peak intensity. 


As for winds...continue to advertise best gusts across northwest 
Utah and southwest Wyoming Post frontal today. Warm sector doesnt 
look too breezy as we lose the pressure gradient and 700mb flow 
is around 20kts. 


End precipitation late this evening...with shortwave ridging 
building in for Wednesday. A moist westerly Pacific flow looks to 
supply middle and high level cloudiness across the far west and north 
during the second half of the work week as temperatures moderate. 


&& 


Long term (after 12z friday)... 
high pressure continues to build over the area Friday before 
shifting east Saturday...continue the warming trend. By Friday 
maxes are expected to be up to 10f above seasonal norms. 


Models continue to indicate that a Pacific northwest storm system 
will impact the region for the latter half of the weekend and into 
early next week. However...models have diverged a bit on the details 
compared to yesterday. Both bring the system and initial front in 
Saturday night/Sunday morning...dropping 700 mb temperatures into the -3c 
to -4c range over northern Utah. However...the system is more split 
in the ec compared to the GFS...with the southern wave moving into 
southern Utah during the day Sunday before the northern piece digs 
into northern Utah Sunday night/Monday. The GFS solution brings the 
entire system through on Sunday...impacting primarily northern and 
central Utah. Regardless...all guidance is showing unsettled weather 
during this period so have kept probability of precipitation at least scattered during this 
period. Behind the exiting trough...strong high pressure is expected 
to rebuild by day 7. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions are expected at the slc terminal through 
the morning. Southeast winds will persist before the passage of a 
cold front between 14z and 16z...shifting winds to the northwest. 
Showers in the vicinity of the terminal will become more numerous 
with the front this morning...reducing ceilings to or below 6000 feet above ground level 
at times through about midday. Clouds are expected to decrease by 
late afternoon. 


&& 


Fire weather...a cold front crosses northern and central Utah 
today. Good chance for precipitation especially across northern 
Utah. Snow level is around 9500ft. The front will also bring a 
notable increase in humidity across much of the state into middle 
week. 


Temperatures rebound gradually late week with decreasing humidity. 
Another wet cold front expected next weekend. Southerly winds may 
become gusty ahead of the front. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...none. 
Wyoming...none.
