NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
705 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Update... 


Issued at 705 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Inherited forecast on track. Only minor edits were needed for the 
early evening forecast issuance. 


Strong winds continue across much of the region. Winds continue to 
gust over 50kts west and central where the High Wind Warning is in 
effect. BUFKIT analysis indicates gusts to 70-75 miles per hour not out of 
the question over the next 1-3 hours with strong pressure rises 
taking place in the wake of the deep area of low pressure. Winds 
should weaken a bit 3z-5z later this evening as the top of the 
mixing layer lowers...but will remain gusty across my north 
central and northeast. For now will leave the High Wind Warning as 
is. There is a possibility parts may need to be extended in time 
into the early morning. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 253 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Deep surface low pressure centered over southeast Saskatchewan 
will move east tonight. High Wind Warning criteria being met 
across the western third of the state so far today. Main change 
to headlines will be to extend the High Wind Warning west several 
more hours into this evening as the h850 winds and BUFKIT 
soundings show momentum Transfer through 04z. Radar and surface 
observations show showers extend across northwest North Dakota. 
Will spread at least a slight chance of showers as far southeast 
as Bismarck this evening. Otherwise winds diminishing after 04z 
and showers ending by morning. Breezy Wednesday but not should 
remain below Wind Advisory criteria. Partly to mostly sunny 
Wednesday with highs in the 70s to lower 80s. 


Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) 
issued at 253 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Wednesday night winds will finally diminish as the low exits the 
region. 


A transition to northwest flow will occur Wednesday. This will 
bring cooler and dryer conditions to the region through the end of 
the week. Warmer temperatures and chances for thunderstorms return 
this weekend as the jet stream shifts south again and several fast 
moving upper level waves propagate through. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening) 


Issued at 705 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 28 2015 


Deep low pressure across Saskatchewan will move east tonight. 
Hazard to aviation will be strong westerly winds of 35 to 60 kts 
kisn-kdik-kmot-kbis this evening. Winds diminishing after 04z. 
Gusty winds of 30-40kts expected for Wednesday.
