Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Bismarck ND 548 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 Update... issued at 548 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 Weak high pressure building into western North Dakota will continue to contribute to dry and tranquil conditions across western and central North Dakota tonight. Adjusted overnight lows down a few degrees given the expected light winds and clearing skies. Otherwise...the remaining forecast is on track. The updated gridded and text products will be out shortly. && Short term...(this evening through wednesday) issued at 238 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 Current surface analysis places high over the Midwest with low over Manitoba while trough works its way through the Dakotas. Upper level analysis palaces trough over the Great Lakes with low amplitude ridge over The Rockies...while subtitle short wave continues to produce some convection over northeastern North Dakota. Next trough to approach the area continues to work its way through British Columbia into the Pacific northwest. For the rest of this afternoon into tonight...quiet weather is on tap as Flat Ridge works its way over the area. On Wednesday...ridge works its way off to the east as aforementioned Pacific trough quickly approaches the region. Surface low works its way over southern Saskatchewan and northern Montana and approaches northern North Dakota with affiliated cold front by the afternoon. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will then slowly increase through the afternoon over northwest North Dakota as this feature works its way in. Greater coverage and greater severe threat will develop in the evening (see long term discussion)...though with strong shear in place severe threat will be possible in the late afternoon hours. Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) issued at 238 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 Main focus in the long term continues to revolve around heavy rainfall Wednesday night especially over north central North Dakota...along with the potential for severe weather. The severe weather potential also exists for northwest/southcentral/and into the James River Valley per Storm Prediction Center day 2 outlook. Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats. A potent cold front will sweep through Wednesday night...helping to spawn the heavy rainfall and possible severe weather. This will be followed by much cooler and quite breezy conditions for Thursday. Thereafter...the weather pattern is quiet through the weekend with a gradual warming trend. Next chance of precipitation will gradually return Monday into Tuesday. The weather prediction center and 12z model suite in good agreement with rainfall amounts of between 0.60 and 0.75 inches from Kenmare to Garrison...and from Minot to Sherwood Wednesday night into Thursday morning. As mentioned above...Storm Prediction Center has most of North Dakota in a slight risk for severe weather...the exception being the southwest and far south central areas. Best dynamics are centered over the north...with the location of the surface low and associated surface cold front/the approach of the upper trough/and left exit region of a 100kt jet streak...which all come together producing large scale ascent per the 850 mb-300 mb Omega field. Hence the heaviest rainfall is forecast in this area...along with potential for severe weather. 0-6km shear remains robust across the northwest and north central at 55kt to 60kt. Highest dewpoints remain over south central North Dakota between 55f and 60f...with some of this being advected via a east to southeast wind during the afternoon/evening into central and northern North Dakota. However due to a rather short duration of moisture advection...the maximum moisture transport/highest dewpoints will remain limited during the time of maximum forcing which occurs between 00z-06z Thursday. Still though with more than adequate shear and sufficient forcing...severe weather will be closely monitored throughout the afternoon and into Wednesday night. Breezy/cooler with northwest winds of 20 to 30mph along with lingering showers and thundershowers will occur Thursday...with the highest probability of precipitation residing over the north central closest to the upper trough axis. Surface high pressure then slides across Thursday night/Friday morning for a clearing sky and light winds. This will set the stage for overnight lows in the upper 30s across Hettinger and portions of southwest North Dakota. There could be fog issues in the north late Thursday night...especially with the amount of rain expected prior to the clearing sky/good radiational cooling taking place. Highs Thursday and Friday will be in the upper 60s. A gradual warming trend into the 70s Saturday and Sunday with continued dry conditions. Warmer Monday with highs into the lower 80s west and 70s elsewhere...with a slight chance of thunderstorms. Better chance for thunderstorms arrives on Tuesday. && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening) issued at 548 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 VFR conditions will prevail over western and central North Dakota through the taf period. && Bis watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Update...tm short term...jjs long term...Kansas aviation...tm
