NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
321 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Short term...(this evening through thursday) 


Issued at 320 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Forecast issues in the short term are thunderstorm chances...and 
possibility of severe storms. 


Currently...surface high was over Manitoba southward through the Red 
River valley...with low pressure in the Lee of The Rockies. 
Southeasterly flow was keeping moist low levels with dewpoints in 
the 60s over western and central North Dakota. At upper levels...a 
Sharp Ridge was in place from Saskatchewan to the western Dakotas 
and eastern Mt/WY. Best shear and middle level lapse rates were over 
the Front Range this afternoon...with most unstable convective available potential energy over the 
Front Range into the western Dakotas. 


Latest model runs suggest thunderstorms developing over central and 
eastern Montana this evening in the vicinity of a middle level 
shortwave energy impulse forecast to move/develop into northeastern 
Montana during the evening. Once convection becomes better 
established...the scenario is for storms to migrate eastward into 
western North Dakota later this evening...then spread into central 
North Dakota after midnight. The western third of North Dakota has 
the best potential for severe storms late this evening into the 
early morning hours. 


Ongoing convection daybreak Thursday over much of central North 
Dakota expected to continue moving eastward. Then...attention turns 
to the west as a significant upper low emerges into the Front Range 
from The Rockies with strong southwest flow aloft into the Dakotas. 
At the same time...the aforementioned surface low over the Front 
Range will have moved/developed eastward into the western Dakotas. 
These ingredients will be favorable for plenty of shear...cape 
(especially with surface dewpoints in the 65 to 70 degree 
range)...and upper level impulses. Good chance of thunderstorms 
Thursday afternoon over the western third of the state. This will 
continue into the evening hours as well...with severe weather 
possible over much of the forecast area Thursday afternoon/night. 




Long term...(thursday night through wednesday) 


Issued at 320 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


The main features in the long term period continue to be an upper 
low off the Washington/or coast and its interaction with the downstream 
h500 ridge over the northern plains. As the upper low moves east 
and flattens the ridge...a cold front at the surface will 
position itself across eastern Montana by Thursday afternoon. The 
front will then push east across North Dakota Thursday 
evening and overnight into Friday morning. Thunderstorms...a few 
possibly severe with strong winds and hail the main threats will 
accompany the front as it progresses east through the state 
Thursday afternoon and evening. On Friday cooler but still 
reasonably mild temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s should 
be the rule. Any showers and isolated thunderstorms should be 
limited to the east. One more day of showers/scattered 
thunderstorms on Saturday as the slow moving upper low tracks 
south across Minnesota. While the state will generally be on the 
dry side of the upper low cant rule out showers as cool air aloft 
should support some instability...especially north. As the upper 
low drifts east and a ridge probability of precipitation up in Montana Sunday through 
Tuesday...should be dry with generally pleasant temperatures and 
humidity for this time of year. 




&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 120 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Lingering area of MVFR ceilings extended from near Tioga and Stanley 
airports to kmot to hear Harvey airports. Expecting MVFR ceilings to 
dissipate shortly after 18z. Otherwise VFR conditions all taf sites 
through 00z-03z. Chance of thunderstorms and rain after 03z at kisn...thunderstorms in the vicinity at kdik after 
05z...and chance -tsra after 05z at kmot/kbis...after 06z at kjms. Strong 
winds and hail possible at kisn/kdik/kmot...but too far out in the 
taf period for any more specific parameters.
