Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1257 PM CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1258 PM CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


High pressure over the area will move east today. Mainly clear 
skies northwest with cumulus developing south and east. Short range 
models continue to bring some light returns into the south central 
this afternoon. Added some very small probability of precipitation...which will keep the 
mention of showers out of the worded forecast. Latest 12 UTC NAM 
and 15 UTC rap show only a shallow layer of moisture around 3-5k 
feet. Made some minor changes to sky cover and temperatures. 


Update issued at 950 am CDT Wednesday Aug 27 
2014 


Latest satellite shows quite a bit of fog remaining over southwest 
and south central North Dakota. However...looks like it is 
dissipating quickly thus will likely drop the advisory after 
taking a look at the 10 am observations. Otherwise no significant 
issues to the going forecast. Will update text products will be 
sent with the expiration/cancellation of the dense fog advisory. 


Update issued at 623 am CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Refined the fog areas to reflect fog over most of the west and 
central this morning. Left the advisory area in place. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 431 am CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


For the near term/early this morning...the current fog/stratus 
imagery loop in combination with surface observations shows dense 
fog expanding over most of central North Dakota. Based on current 
visibility trends and latest hrrr visibility forecast...have 
issued a dense fog advisory for most of central North Dakota 
through late Wednesday morning. 


Otherwise...a clear sky dominates west and north with the latest 
water vapor imagery showing subsidence behind a northern stream 
shortwave now into Minnesota. Split flow continues with the 
southern branch extending from the Great Basin into South Dakota. 
An upper low/trough was seen over western Nevada early this morning. 


Expecting plenty of sunshine today with temperatures warming into 
the 70s...and lower 80s in the far west. All model guidance...with 
the exception of the GFS...are in agreement that the southern 
branch makes a return into southern North Dakota Wednesday night. 
As the aforementioned Great Basin low/trough shifts east...a 
surface low will take shape over Nebraska and South Dakota later 
today into tonight. Latest trends indicate the northern fringe of 
precipitation will reach the James River Valley between 06z and 
12z Thursday. After collaborating with Aberdeen and Grand 
Forks...have introduced a slight chance mention for showers and will 
let subsequent shifts look at the latest data to fine tune. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 431 am CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


During this period there will be several cold frontal passages that 
will bring some active weather to the region over the Labor Day 
weekend. First...the remnants of an upper level low will track south 
of the state Thursday. While this feature will impact the areas 
south of the state with several large mesoscale convective system type convective 
systems...there will be some residual moisture pulled into the 
state...mainly across the James River Valley Thursday morning. But 
there will likely be more clouds through the day Thursday than 
previously thought across a large portion of southern and eastern 
North Dakota. After this a cold front will enter the northwest 
supported by a rather weak leading shortwave trough ahead of a more 
significant shortwave still lingering across the northwest US Friday. 
Overall...have down played the probability of precipitation Thursday night and 
Friday...waiting instead for the more significant shortwave due in 
Saturday night and Sunday. With this next system will see more 
significant precipitation with stronger warm/cold frontal passages. 
So the Holiday weekend should be a bit soggy Saturday night with 
scattered showers on Sunday. Cool cyclonic flow aloft should 
maintain slight threat for thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 1258 PM CDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Skies initially clear at 17 UTC...but cumulus is filling in quickly 
across the south central and east. Kdik...kisn and kmot should be 
VFR this afternoon. Kbis-kjms mainly VFR but a brief period of 
MVFR ceilings possible before cumulus field lifts above 3k feet. Then 
low VFR ceiling late afternoon and tonight. System brushes the 
southeast tonight and added a vcsh at kjms and kept low VFR 
ceilings at kbis and kjms. Left kdik-kisn-kmot VFR for now with a 
mention of vcfg around 10-14 UTC Thursday. Will need to monitor 
for hitting fog harder with later shifts.
