NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
854 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Update... 
issued at 851 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Frost advisory cancelled/expired. Otherwise no significant 
updates. Made some minor changes to sky cover based on latest 
satellite...and updated latest sensible weather observations. 


Update 
issued at 633 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


No changes with this updated forecast issuance. As expected we 
have frosted over many areas this morning. Almost a slam dunk 
frost advisory with models the past few days showing dewpoints in 
the middle 20s to 30f. Throw in a clear sky and light east wind and 
almost a given we were going to drop into the low 30s. Frost advection 
verifying all locations. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 


Issued at 354 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Cool conditions across the state early this morning...as mostly 
clear skies and light winds give way to temperatures in the 30s. A 
frost advisory is in effect for much of the state through 9 am 
CDT. 


As an upper level low over the Hudson Bay continues 
eastward...cyclonic flow aloft will diminish over North Dakota and a 
transition into zonal flow will commence through the day. The 
current ensemble and deterministic models provide good agreement on 
an embedded shortwave pushing into the state...from eastern 
Montana...through the evening. As a result...chances for showers and 
thunderstorms will spread from west to east across the state. There 
are slight chances for thunderstorms in the west through Saturday 
night. Thereafter...mostly showers are expected into Sunday 
morning. Additionally...breezy southeasterly winds are expected 
in western areas late this morning through early Sunday morning. 


Long term...(sunday through friday) 


Issued at 354 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


An increasingly active weather pattern will continue to be the 
main highlight in the long term period. 


Strong middle level wave moves east across the Dakotas Saturday 
night...with an area of showers likely ongoing south central 
Sunday morning. Precipitation moves south and east out of the 
area during the day. We will warm back into the 70s west and south 
central for Sunday where best warm air advection resides. 


Strong warm air and moisture advection continue early next week 
with high temperatures warming into the 70s to middle 80s across the 
region Monday and Tuesday. Very active weather pattern develops as 
our flow aloft becomes southwesterly later Monday night and 
onwards with a long wave trough developing into the western Continental U.S.. 
first lead wave ejecting out of the upper trough will arrive Monday 
night into early Tuesday bringing showers and thunderstorms to 
western and central North Dakota. Latest Special Weather Statement day three outlook now 
has western North Dakota in the marginal storm outlook with my far 
southwest in the slight risk area. These areas will see 1-2k 
MUCAPE along with 0-6km wind shear 25-40kts. 


Thereafter a series of middle level waves push northeast across the 
northern plains out of the trough...each interacting with a 
quasi-stationary/redeveloping frontal boundary. Models still 
project all the ingredients (strong instability and/or deep layer 
shear) will be in place for strong convection and heavy rainfall 
through the work week. At this time based on latest 
guidance...Tuesday may see more widespread convection...limited to 
my far south or southeast Wednesday...perhaps the far south on 
Thursday. Will try to pin down the details as we get closer to 
each day. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning) 
issued at 851 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


VFR ceilings are expected through the forecast. There is a slight 
chance for thunderstorms in western areas from 00z through 06z. 
Thereafter...showers are expected to move from west to east across 
the state...kisn/kbis/kdik are likely to have a shower or two.

Bis watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
