NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
320 am CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 320 am CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Potential for severe storms will be the main issue from this morning 
into the evening hours. 


Currently...a cold front extended from near Pembina to near Devils 
Lake to near Dickinson and Bowman...and across southern Montana. 


The shortwave along the eastern end of the cold front that was 
associated with thunderstorms storms that developed Saturday along 
the cold front in northwestern North Dakota was now into northern 
Minnesota. The storms that redeveloped along the cold front in 
northeastern and north central North Dakota late in the evening and 
into the early morning hours have decreased. 


Attention now turns to the next strong shortwave that was currently 
associated with 3 distinct clusters of severe storms moving east 
across northern Montana. The storms will likely hold 
together...as the middle-level lapse rates have been increasing in 
western North Dakota the past couple of hours. Bowing structure 
approaching Dawson/Wibaux/Richland counties in eastern Montana 
should reach the McKenzie/Golden Valley County area between 4am/5am 
CDT...3am/4am MDT. A possible Severe Thunderstorm Watch is being 
contemplated for parts of western North Dakota for the morning hours. 


Later this morning this strong shortwave elongates into a series of 
upper level impulses oriented northeast to southwest along the cold 
front. Increasing shear along and behind the cold front and 
increasing cape along and ahead of the cold front will keep 
thunderstorm activity going for much of the day today. The severe 
threat should transition from western North Dakota this morning to 
southern and eastern North Dakota this afternoon into early evening. 


Threat of showers and thunderstorms should end from northwest to 
southeast Sunday night. 


Long term...(monday through saturday) 


Issued at 320 am CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Forecast highlights in the long term period will be much cooler 
temperatures and mainly dry conditions early next week...followed by 
a warming trend middle to late next week along with a possible return 
to more active weather. 


A secondary cold front and the passage of a middle level shortwave trough 
and jet streak aloft will bring a chance of light showers to much of 
the northern plains Monday morning and afternoon. Removed thunder 
mention with models showing little of any cape. Surface high 
pressure then builds east into the Dakotas Monday night and should 
keep the weather rather quiet through Tuesday daytime. Unseasonably 
cool temperatures will fall in behind the front with daytime highs 
Monday in the middle 60s to low 70s...warming up slightly into the 70s 
for Tuesday with developing return flow. 


Right entrance region of another jet streak Tuesday night from 
southeastern Montana to across southern North Dakota will bring our 
next chance of showers and thunderstorms over the southwest and 
south central areas near a frontal boundary which develops east into 
the local area. Precipitation chances linger into Wednesday until 
forcing aloft diminishes Wednesday night. 


Mainly quiet period for Thursday and early Friday with a quasi 
zonal/flow regime in place and southerly return flow. Temperatures 
expected to moderate with this flow pattern...especially on Friday 
when southerly flow ramps up ahead of a developing surface trough across 
the northern High Plains region. 


Model uncertainty increases as we head into the later Friday and 
next weekend periods. While both the 00z GFS and European model (ecmwf) continue 
moderating temperatures closer to July normals...the GFS portrays 
southwesterly flow and thus a very active convective pattern. The 
European model (ecmwf) develops more ridging over The Rockies so more spotty 
precipitation chances. We opted to stay with an overall blend with 
this forecast issuance.

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Sunday night) 


Issued at 320 am CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Thunderstorm threat for kjms appears to be over for the early 
morning hours. Threat increases during the day with thunderstorms 
likely this afternoon. 


Cluster of storms moving eastward out of Montana likely will reach 
kisn around 09z-10z and kdik 10z-11z. Threat for strong to severe 
storms more likely at kdik and plan to update taf as needed through 
the early morning hours. Strong winds with storms moving at around 
40 knots. 


Later this morning chance of thunderstorms for all tafs...and this 
afternoon at kdik/kbis/kjms. More severe storms expected this 
afternoon mainly possible at kdik/kbis/kjms.
