Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1213 am CDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Update... 
issued at 1213 am CDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Latest satellite imagery loop and surface observations show a cold 
front pushing across western North Dakota with winds shifting to the 
west. Radar imagery...regional and local...shows increasing areas 
of reflectivity's developing...most of which is middle level moisture 
being sampled and increasing across central North Dakota. However 
Bowman radar shows a line of showers in far eastern Montana with 
pockets of isolated showers ahead of the main line into western 
North Dakota. Model guidance continues to hone in on the primary 
focus for showers across portions of south central North Dakota 
prior to daybreak...and then into the James River Valley where 
scattered to numerous showers at times are expected middle morning 
through Wednesday afternoon. Current forecast has a mention of 
isolated thunderstorms and concur with this as they will remain 
elevated and non-severe. Current forecast is on track. 


Update issued at 945 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Elevated thunderstorms developed over southwestern North Dakota 
during the past hour. Thunderstorm chances should gradually spread 
east over the state tonight in an area of elevated cape ahead of 
an upper shortwave pivoting into eastern Montana. Added a slight 
chance of thunderstorms over western and central North Dakota for 
the rest of tonight as a result. Otherwise...the remaining weather 
elements are in good shape. The updated products have been sent. 


Update issued at 652 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Surface trough/cold front is currently moving through eastern 
Montana...and will continue to move east across North Dakota 
tonight. Its parent upper level trough/shortwave will lag behind 
and should be the primary forcing mechanism for shower development 
tonight. As a result...delayed the slight chance of showers until 
after midnight. Thunderstorms will continue to be possible east 
early Wednesday morning. However...no severe weather is expected. 
The updated products have been sent.

Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 349 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Forecast challenge will be precipitation chances and the chance 
for thunderstorms late tonight and Wednesday. Models continue to 
show spotty precipitation across the region with the upstream 
shortwave trough expected to move through tonight and Wednesday. 
Robust cap in place as elevated mixed layer overspreads the region 
this afternoon and tonight. However decided to add a slight 
chance for thunderstorms where the showalter index trends negative 
tonight and Wednesday southeast. This layer above the cap could 
result in elevated convection late tonight and Wednesday. 


Tried to fit the probability of precipitation with the best forcing for lift. Ended up 
focusing on the cold frontal boundary after midnight tonight into 
Wednesday. Highs Wednesday will still be in the 60s which is 10 
degrees above normal. 


Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) 
issued at 349 PM CDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


By Wednesday night a trough and associated cold front will be 
draped across eastern North Dakota. Any precipitation associated 
with this front should be out of the forecast area by this time. 


The next chance of precipitation does not arrive until Sunday into 
Monday as another shortwave trough moves in from the mountain 
west. Of course being nearly a week way...guidance differs greatly 
on precipitation chances and placement. 


Temperature wise...above normal temperatures will continue through 
the week. A cold front will swing through the region Friday 
afternoon. This front should bring little more than a wind shift 
and slightly cooler temperatures to the region. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Wednesday night) 
issued at 1213 am CDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


A cold front is pushing through kisn and kdik as of 06z Wednesday. 
Rest of the terminals have southeast winds ahead of the front. An 
area of low VFR ceilings now across north central Montana will shift 
toward kisn/kdik by 13z Wednesday...and into kmot by 18z. There 
could be intermittent MVFR ceilings at these terminals through Wednesday 
afternoon. Otherwise...expect VFR ceilings/visibilities with a vcsh over th 
aerodromes with the frontal passage. The exception will be kjms 
where predominant -shra is forecast between 15z and 23z Wednesday.
