NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
404 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Short term...(this evening through friday) 
issued at 404 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Low level stratus and freezing drizzle potential tonight...and 
strong winds Friday highlight the short term. 


Visible satellite through 2015 UTC shows that the stratus has 
eroded across The Turtle mountains...and Devils Lake basin into 
the upper James River Valley. This is generally on track...if not 
just a bit slower when compared to the low level relative humidity fields on the 
17 through 19 UTC rap and hrrr iterations. Stratus erosion will 
continue through the afternoon and early evening as low level 
subsidence increases with the building surface high. There are some 
indications in the rap/hrrr and observed satellite trends that the 
stratus may liner along and west of Highway 85 through much of the 
night. Thus...with Sundown stratus build down is 
possible...leading to fog and potentially patchy freezing drizzle 
with saturation warmer than -10c across the southwest. 
Otherwise...a cold night is expected for stratus free areas with 
light winds and clear skies in the surface high and lows in the 
teens. 


For Friday...issued a Wind Advisory for the southwest from 18-00 
UTC. Strong southeasterly wind are forecast as the pressure 
gradient increases between the departing surface high propagating 
into the upper Mississippi Valley and the stationary Lee front 
across Montana and Wyoming. 0.5 km winds increase to 50 kts by 00 
UTC across much of the western and central North Dakota. 
However...mixing heights are rather shallow given the low level 
warm air advection induced inversion. Thus...the higher terrain of 
the southwest has the best chance of taping into the strong winds 
at the base of the inversion. Should mixing heights be greater 
than forecast...an expansion in time and area of the advisory may 
be possible. 




Long term...(friday night through thursday) 
issued at 404 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Main impacts in the extended...windy conditions Friday 
evening...rain/snow Monday. 


Very windy conditions are forecast to 
develop over southwestern North Dakota Friday afternoon. Warm air 
advection...combined with large pressure falls ahead of a low 
pressure center in eastern Montana...will bring in gusty winds 
around 40 miles per hour. Winds should diminish by Saturday as the pressure 
gradient weakens across North Dakota. 


The latest guidance (12 UTC GFS/ECMWF/sref/nam) are in good 
agreement in the time and placement of the Sunday/Monday shortwave 
trough. The bulk of the precipitation should remain west of North 
Dakota Sunday. As the shortwave enters Saskatchewan and Manitoba 
Sunday night into Monday...wrap around moisture could bring in a 
chance of rain or snow across the north Monday morning. 


Another shortwave is forecast to swing out of Saskatchewan and 
enter North Dakota Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. The European model (ecmwf) is a 
bit further north with precipitation than the GFS. If the track on 
the European model (ecmwf) holds true then very little if any precipitation will 
impact North Dakota with this particular shortwave trough. The 
European model (ecmwf) is also warmer than the GFS...pointing to all rain precipitation 
rather than the rain/snow mix of the GFS. Right now only a slight 
chance for precipitation was added to the forecast. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon) 
issued at 404 PM CDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


MVFR to IFR stratus will continue to erode across all but far 
western North Dakota this evening. This includes kdik and possibly 
kisn...where MVFR to IFR ceilings may continue through much of the 
night...with some fog and patchy freezing drizzle possible with 
stratus build down. Strong southeast winds are forecast area wide 
Friday...the strongest being across the southwest where gusts in 
excess of 40 kts are possible at kdik.
