NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
929 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Update... 
issued at 929 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


The forecast for the remainder of today is on track with the 
stratus field overtaking western and central North Dakota expected 
to slowly scatter with diurnal heating with rain shower coverage 
increasing through the afternoon. This is in line with the 12-13 
UTC hrrr iterations. 


Update issued at 629 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Initial batch of widespread rain continues to push off to the 
east...though secondary round of scattered wrap around showers are 
starting to develop and work into far northwest North Dakota. Have 
adjusted probability of precipitation to account for this. Have also increased cloud cover 
mainly over the west as clouds continue to stream in behind the 
low. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 400 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Continued chances for rain and windy conditions through 
Sunday...highlight the short term. 


An upper level trough over the northern plains will continue to 
provide ample moisture and instability...prolonging chances for 
widespread showers in central and eastern areas of the state through 
the day. Additionally...temperatures slightly below average and 
strong northwest winds will accompany the deepening trough. The 
current 00z model suite provides good agreement on the upper level 
trough digging and slowly moving eastward...pushing over 
Minnesota/eastern Manitoba and closing off by 12z Monday. North 
central North Dakota into the James River Valley have the 
potential for a few snow flakes early Monday morning...as cold air 
filtering southward from Canada is expected to drop overnight lows 
to just below freezing. 


Long term...(monday through saturday) 
issued at 400 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Upper low will work along the Minnesota/Ontario border on Monday. 
This should keep precipitation to the east of our area through the 
day...though gusty northwest winds will continue in the wake of 
the system. A fast moving wave will move in behind the system late 
Tuesday night into early Wednesday which may bring a little light 
precipitation to central North Dakota...but will keep probability of precipitation low 
with lack of much moisture to work with. Quiet and cool conditions 
are then expected with ridging to the west and northwesterly flow 
over our area. Models start to disagree with the position of the 
ridge and whether a few upper waves will make it through the area 
towards the end of the week. Therefore...will keep any 
precipitation chances on the low side. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Monday morning) 
issued at 925 am CDT sun Apr 19 2015 


MVFR/VFR stratus will continue to spread across western and 
central North Dakota this morning. This deck is expected to slowly 
lift and scatter into the afternoon with rain shower coverage also 
increasing into the afternoon. Strong northwest wind gusts of 
30-35 kts are also forecast across western and central North 
Dakota today.

none.
