NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
936 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Update... 
issued at 932 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


At 9 am CDT...a warm front extended from a surface low pressure 
across eastern Montana through southern North Dakota. Skies were 
sunny. Current forecast trending well. Highs around 90 southwest 
to the middle 80s north central. 


Update issued at 620 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


The forecast remains on track this morning. High pressure was 
centered over the Red River valley...with weak southerly flow across 
western and central North Dakota. Adjusted hourly temperatures with 
current observations. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 258 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


No significant concerns are expected through the short term period. 


High temperatures are expected to be well above average on 
Tuesday...as upper level ridging over the Central Plains persist. 


Tuesday night look for slight chances for showers and thunderstorms 
in central and eastern areas...associated with a passing upper level 
shortwave. Otherwise...mostly dry conditions and sunny skies are 
expected through the period. 


Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 258 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


Dry and very warm Wednesday into Thursday...then cooler with chances 
of showers and thunderstorms through the weekend. 


A longwave trough moving into the West Coast Wednesday will continue 
to deepen over the West Coast through Friday. During this time North 
Dakota will be on the western edge of the upstream ridge 
axis...keeping the very warm and dry air over the state. Highs 
Wednesday will be much above average with temperatures reaching the 
upper 90s west to lower 90s from The Turtle mountains to the James 
Valley. By Thursday some upper level energy impulses moving 
northeast through the flow begin to reach the northern 
plains...bringing some upper level moisture and also inducing a weak 
surface low over the northern plains...allowing some cooler air to 
begin moving into northwest North Dakota as the thermal ridge axis 
begins moving eastward. Highs in the lower 90s most areas...except a 
bit cooler northwest with highs in the low to middle 80s. 


On Friday the longwave trough begins moving east across The 
Rockies...sending a series of shortwave energy impulses across the 
northern plains. On Sunday the base of the trough lifts 
northeastward into the northern plains...reaching Manitoba by 
Monday. This time period will be characterized by good chances of 
showers and thunderstorms...as well as by seasonable temperatures 
with highs in the 70s to lower 80s with lows mainly in the 50s and 
lower 60s.
