Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Flagstaff AZ 926 AM MST Tue Sep 28 2021
SYNOPSIS. Breezy southwest winds will develop today with showers and thunderstorms in the east. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue across northern Arizona each day peaking on Thursday. Drier and warmer conditions are forecast for the weekend with a return to more seasonable fall weather.
UPDATE. Scattered showers have continued this morning mainly over Apache county with some areas of patchy fog and low clouds elsewhere. Fog has dissipated with pockets of low clouds continuing. Have made minor forecast adjustments based on the latest radar/satellite trends this morning but no major changes for the rest of the day which features scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, especially east of a Kayenta to Heber line.
PREV DISCUSSION /333 AM MST/. Lingering overnight showers are continuing in the northeast and eastern portions of the area as the low center continues to shift into New Mexico today. A few areas of patchy fog may develop over the next couple of hours but should quickly burn off after sunrise.
For Tuesday, expect showers and thunderstorms to redevelop by midday continuing into the afternoon, mainly across eastern Arizona, and into the early evening. A trough over the Pacific Northwest will begin to deepen increasing southwest gradients across the area with breezy southwest winds expected by the afternoon. The trough will continue to deepen and move east Wednesday. Moisture will begin to decrease from west to east as drier southwest flow develops across the area. A few models are a bit slower removing the moisture with higher POP values in through Wednesday. With this mornings forecast package, used some blends to reduce dew points and POP chances on Wednesday. Overnight temperatures on Tuesday will approach freezing for areas from Flagstaff north and west where drier air is progged to move in. Soundings show a mid level inversion developing across the area which should keep thunderstorm activity isolated to scattered at most on Wednesday. Will continue to trend downward if needed.
On Thursday, moisture begins to return as the trough deepens over Arizona with low and mid level flow shifting more southerly. Expect scattered to widespread showers and thunderstorms for areas East of Flagstaff and I-17 with isolated to scattered shower and thunderstorms in the west.
Behind the Thursday system, much drier and warmer air will filter in as a ridge builds in across the desert southwest. Temperatures will warm through the weekend becoming more seasonable. Typical fall like weather for northern Arizona with mild days and chilly temperatures overnight leading to large diurnal swings.
AVIATION. For the 18Z package . Low cloud layers are gradually thinning this morning with improved sky conditions throughout the day. Breezy southwesterlies throughout the afternoon across the area with another round of showers and storms expected Tuesday through 00Z. Precipitation will be primarily in Navajo and Apache Counties. Lingering moisture overnight will lower ceilings to near MVFR for higher elevations tomorrow morning. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
FIRE WEATHER. Cool temperatures, showers, and storms remain in the forecast with the majority of rainfall in the eastern portion of the state Tuesday and more widespread chances on Wednesday. Stronger, breezy southwesterly winds are expected Tuesday before winds weaken Wednesday.
