AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FLAGSTAFF AZ
950 AM MST MON MAR 30 2015

.SYNOPSIS...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE WITH A GRADUAL
COOLING TREND THROUGH THE WEEK. THE MAIN IMPACT DURING THE SEVEN-DAY
FORECAST WILL BE THE RETURN OF GUSTY SPRINGTIME WINDS ON WEDNESDAY
AND THURSDAY. DRY HUMIDITY LEVELS AND STRONG WINDS MAY CREATE
CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ON THURSDAY. BREEZY WINDS

&&

.DISCUSSION...A WEAK LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS ARIZONA
TODAY WITH SLIGHT CHANCES FOR HIGH BASED SHOWERS AND A FEW
THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY OVER THE MOUNTAIN REGIONS OF NORTHEASTERN
ARIZONA (FROM THE MOGOLLON RIM NORTHWARD TO THE UTAH BORDER).

EXPECT A GRADUAL COOLING TREND THIS WEEK WITH WIND SPEEDS INCREASING
ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT MOVING
THROUGH UTAH. THE LATEST COMPUTER MODEL GUIDANCE SHOWS THIS COLD
FRONT MOVING INTO ARIZONA ON THURSDAY MORNING WITH STRONG GUSTY
WINDS ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY. THERE WILL BE NO
PRECIPITATION WITH THIS FRONTAL PASSAGE. DRY HUMIDITY LEVELS COUPLED
WITH STRONG WINDS AND DRY FUELS MAY PRODUCE CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS FOR SOME OF OUR NORTHEASTERN FORECAST ZONES. BREEZY
SPRING WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.

&&

.AVIATION...FOR THE 18Z PACKAGE...VFR CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST
THROUGH 18Z TUESDAY. EXPECT SCT-BKN CLOUD BASES AT OR ABOVE 15 KFT
MSL. ISOLATED AND HIGH BASED AFTERNOON VIRGA OR THUNDERSTORMS ARE
POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON NEAR AND EAST OF A K0V7-KFLG LINE WITH
GUSTY/ERRATIC WINDS IN THE VICINITY OF VIRGA SHOWERS/STORMS.
AVIATION DISCUSSION NOT UPDATED FOR TAF AMENDMENTS.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...A WEAK LOW PRESSURE DISTURBANCE WILL CROSS THE
DESERT SOUTHWEST TODAY AND TONIGHT. LOOK FOR A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
HIGH-BASED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON NEAR THE FOUR
CORNERS AND WHITE MOUNTAINS. HIGH TEMPERATURES THIS AFTERNOON WILL
BE WELL ABOVE NORMAL.

SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL RETURN TO NORTHERN ARIZONA FROM TUESDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY. EXPECT GUSTY AFTERNOON WINDS PROGRESSIVELY
INCREASING IN SPEED EACH DAY. GUSTS TO 40 MPH ARE PROBABLE THURSDAY
AFTERNOON ACROSS NORTHEAST ARIZONA DUE TO A DRY COLD FRONT MOVING
INTO THE AZ/UT BORDER AREA. THE FRONT IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
SOUTHWARD THURSDAY NIGHT.

STILL REMAINING ABOVE NORMAL. SOUTHWESTERLY BREEZES WILL TYPIFY

.SYNOPSIS...
WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE AGAIN TODAY AND THE
NEXT FEW DAYS. MAXIMUM DAILY TEMPERATURES WILL COOL A FEW DEGREES
DURING THE WEEK. EXPECT INCREASING SOUTHWEST WINDS...ESPECIALLY ON
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BRING MUCH WARMER THAN
NORMAL TEMPERATURES TO THE NORTHLAND AGAIN TODAY. A WEAK IMPULSE
WILL TRAVERSE THE REGION AROUND MONDAY...AND WHILE ANY PRECIP
CHANCES ARE LOW...THEY ARE NOT NON-EXISTENT. THE BEST CHANCES FOR
STRAY SHOWERS WILL BE ACROSS THE WHITE MOUNTAINS. HOWEVER...MOST
LOCATIONS WILL JUST EXPERIENCE TEMPS A COUPLE DEGREES COOLER THAN
THE WEEKEND AND SOME ADDITIONAL PASSING CLOUD COVER. DAYTIME
TEMPS WILL CONTINUE TO MODERATE THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK...THOUGH
STILL REMAINING ABOVE NORMAL. SOUTHWESTERLY BREEZES WILL TYPIFY
