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. && Bis watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Update...Kansas short term...warm air advection long term...aj aviation...Kansas
