NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Bismarck ND 
1145 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1145 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


No major updates are required to the ongoing forecast. 
Temperatures are warming up nicely with record breaking maximum 
temperatures still expected west this afternoon. Bismarck will be 
close to its record high of 52 today. Will continue to monitor 
afternoon trends and update as needed. 


Update issued at 850 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Only adjusted hourly sensible weather grids based on current 
obs/trends. Otherwise...the forecast is on track with record 
breaking high temperatures forecast today and Tuesday. 


Update issued at 642 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


No changes required with this forecast update other than to blend 
to observed trends through 12 UTC...with record highs still on 
track across southwest North Dakota today. 


&& 


Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 324 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Main forecast highlight in the short term period will be very 
mild temperatures with near record highs today southwest and 
possibly south central. 


Currently...northwest flow aloft with troughing east and ridging 
west. Weak cold air advection for the rest of the morning as low pressure slides 
southeast into Minnesota. As this occurs gradient forcing 
increases through the am hours resulting in northwest winds 
breezy at times. Despite the cold air advection...temperatures will remain 
steady or rising in the 30s for the rest of the early morning 
thanks to this steady mixing wind and a scattered-broken middle level cloud 
deck. 


Quasi-stationary frontal boundary sets up north to south across 
the Dakotas today. Temperatures mild either side of this 
boundary...just more-so southwest where return flow on the 
backside of a surface high will allow for middle level warm air advection across the 
western Dakotas. Highs southwest will rise through the middle to 
upper 50s...which should easily break record highs for today 
there. Records may also fall northwest but should be preserved 
elsewhere. See table below: 


Location Monday hi temperature Monday hi temperature 
forecast record 


Dickinson 53 49 in 1931 
Williston 47 47 in 2006 
Bismarck 48 52 in 1942 
Minot 44 58 in 1906 
Jamestown 42 52 in 1990 


Frontal boundary migrates eastward into western Minnesota 
tonight...resulting in mild overnight lows and setting the stage 
for another warm/record breaking day for Tuesday. 


Long term...(tuesday through sunday) 
issued at 324 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Record breaking high temperatures on Tuesday highlight the extended 
forecast. 


The 00 UTC naefs continues its trend of 850 mb temperatures in the 
99th to 99.5th percentiles across southwest North Dakota Tuesday 
afternoon. With bare ground...this supports widespread highs in 
the 50s along and west of the Missouri River. Certainly cannot 
rule out a 60 degree reading far southwest. Shown below are the 
forecast highs and records for Tuesday. 


Location......Tuesday forecast......Tuesday record 


Dickinson..........58..........51 in 2008 
Bismarck...........51..........48 in 2008 
Williston..........51..........47 in 1931 
Minot..............45..........55 in 1906 
Jamestown..........43..........47 in 1989 


Thereafter...a Delaware-amplifying central Continental U.S. Upper level ridge 
transitions to a deepening...broad upper level trough by the 
weekend. This would mark a return to near normal temperatures 
across the area. The latest 00 UTC ensemble and deterministic 
suites are in a bit of a disagreement on how far west Arctic air 
will intrude into the northern Continental U.S.. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Tuesday afternoon) 
issued at 1145 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


VFR conditions will prevail over western and central North Dakota 
through the taf period. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
issued at 324 am CST Monday Jan 26 2015 


River and stream rises have been noted across much of the Missouri 
Basin Sunday into early Monday morning...resulting from snow melt 
and recent precipitation on frozen soils. While flooding is not 
expected from runoff itself...some ice break up may be possible 
with continued mild temperatures Monday and Tuesday. This may lead 
to ice jams and temporary high water. Conditions will continue to 
be monitored for ice jams. 


&& 


Bis watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
