NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1000 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


Update... 
issued at 959 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


The 00 UTC NAM and 23-01 UTC hrrr iterations have delayed the 
onset of snow...decreased its coverage and shifted the axis closer 
to the Highway 83 corridor late tonight into early Friday morning 
in association with a warm front that will enter western North 
Dakota around 12 UTC. Given radar and surface trends through 03 
UTC...these solutions seem plausible and will blend the forecast 
to the aforementioned solutions. 


Update issued at 703 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


The forecast for tonight and into Friday of a band of 
predominately snow in association with a warm front that will 
enter western North Dakota early Friday morning and propagate 
east through the day remains on track and well supported by the 18 
UTC guidance suite. There is still a brief window for mixed 
precipitation along the back edge of the band through the 
event...just ahead of the surface warm front. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through friday) 
issued at 338 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


The main forecast issue in the short term period will be 
precipitation amounts and type tonight and Friday associated with 
a weak trough of low pressure moving across western and central 
North Dakota. 


Currently...high pressure is situated from Manitoba into the 
eastern Dakotas with a Lee side surface trough along the Canadian 
and northern rockies...then into western Nebraska. 


Tonight...a building western ridge will push the trough into far 
eastern Montana as a warm front. Ahead of the front modest 
isentropic upglide will develop over western North Dakota and 
begin to track east...reaching central North Dakota toward Friday 
morning. Precipitation type is most likely to be snow...but a 
wintry mix is certainly possible tonight in the far west...closer 
to the warmest air aloft. 


The precipitation tracks across central North Dakota on Friday. 
The 290k isentropic upglide increases Friday over eastern portions 
of central North Dakota. In addition a shortwave impulse dropping 
down the building upper ridge will track across this same area. 
Precipitation type is expected to be snow initially but as we move 
through the day...the potential for a rain/snow mix will increase 
on the western fringes of the precipitation shield. Precipitation 
amounts are generally expected to be around a tenth of an inch or 
less. Possibly a little higher over eastern portions of central 
ND. Resulting snow amounts ranging from less than a half inch 
west to around an inch central. And maybe up to two over The 
Turtle mountains into the northern James River Valley. 


Long term...(friday night through thursday) 
issued at 338 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


Models trending to a more progressive flow pattern that will 
generate some fast moving shortwaves and will generally bring a mild 
weather pattern to the region. Concerns this period include strong 
and gusty winds on Saturday night and Sunday. Multiple shortwaves 
should bring an active weather pattern to the region: good chances 
of rain showers Saturday afternoon and night...slight chances with a 
quick shortwave Sunday night/Monday...fairly good chances of rain 
Tuesday/Wednesday. The period will generally be above normal 
temperatures for this time of the year. 


Specifics for Saturday and sunday: 


An approaching upper level low/shortwave crosses The Rockies into 
the Front Range Saturday. This induces a strong surface trough in 
the Lee of The Rockies...with south winds increasing to 15 to 25 miles per hour 
across western and central North Dakota. The surface trough enters 
western North Dakota in the afternoon...with winds switching to the 
west behind it. 20 to 30 miles per hour west winds in southwestern North Dakota 
can be expected. There is a chance of rain showers 
ahead/along/behind the surface trough as well. Temperatures should 
rise into the 70s far southwest...with 50s and 60s elsewhere. 


Very strong northwest winds Saturday night behind the 
front...lingering into Sunday with temperatures reaching the 55 to 
60 range. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening) 
issued at 959 PM CDT Thursday Mar 26 2015 


A warm front will enter western North Dakota around 12 UTC 
Friday...and move east through the day. A band of snow with 
MVFR/IFR ceilings and visibilities is expected to develop ahead of 
the front. The greatest impacts are expected to the kbis/kmot/kjms 
terminals.
