NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1233 PM CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1226 PM CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


For early afternoon update the main change was to spread low probability of precipitation 
towards the southeast later this afternoon. Cumulus field continues to 
develop over that area...and the last few days this has resulted 
in some light precipitation. Otherwise...going forecast was in pretty 
good shape with only some small adjustments towards current 
trends. Updates have been sent. 


Update issued at 848 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Morning update addresses shower/thunderstorm activity in the 
western end of the state. Have kept probability of precipitation going further north 
through much of the morning based upon development continuing 
north of the border. Cloud cover with this has also been 
addressed. Have also removed fog as visibilities have improved 
throughout the area. Updates have been sent. 


Update issued at 637 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


The inherited forecast for this morning into the afternoon is on 
track and supported by the 06 UTC NAM/GFS and incoming 10 UTC 
hrrr. Forecast blended to observed trends through 11 UTC.

Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 247 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


The latest water vapor imagery shows a ridge axis extending from 
The Four Corners into the northern Alberta/Saskatchewan. A compensatory 
northwest flow on the east side of the ridge axis was continuing 
into North Dakota. Several embedded middle level shortwaves were seen 
riding through the ridge axis and into western and central North 
Dakota. With little if any change in this pattern over the short 
term period...a sustaining challenge will be determining the areal 
extent and timing of showers/thunderstorms. 


The nam12/hrrr/rap13 are handling the convection across the 
northwest and west central fairly well early this morning. This 
area of showers and thunderstorms will continue to slide southeast 
through the early morning. A warm front developing over eastern 
Montana is forecast to push across western North Dakota with surface 
convergence taking shape through the day in portions of southwest 
and south central North Dakota. This low level convergence combined 
with weak middle level shortwaves will result in a slight chance of 
shower/thunderstorm mention during the day and into the night mainly 
southwest through south central. Highs today will range from 80 east 
central to 90 west. Overnight lows Thursday night will range from 
55 to 60. 


Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 247 am CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


A nominal Summer weather pattern will highlight the extended 
forecast with all fields well within one Standard deviation of 
their climatological values. 


The 00 UTC deterministic and ensemble suites continue to be in 
agreement on Delaware-amplification of the upper level pattern with near 
zonal flow by early next week. This suggests temperatures peaking 
Friday and Saturday...with a slow relative cool down into early 
next week. In regards to convection...there is a near daily 
potential for isolated to scattered thunderstorms Saturday through 
Wednesday with multiple low predictability shortwaves embedded in 
the Delaware-amplifying upper level ridge transitioning to the 
aforementioned zonal flow. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 1226 PM CDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Isolated -shra/-tsra remain possible through this afternoon into the 
evening hours...with quiet weather expected Friday morning. 
Otherwise...VFR conditions will prevail while winds remain light. 


&& 


Bis watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
