AZ Monsoon rapidly kicks into high gear next week
July 05, 2014 10:27AM
THURSDAY JULY 3, 2014
Posted at 9:06 am by Howard

Weak troughing along the California Coast will provide for moderate zephyr winds and slightly cooler temps the next few days…Daytime highs will cool to normal (78) today Wednesday and remain through Saturday July 5th. However, the AZ monsoon will develop rapidly in that region as the continental high builds west and the upper trof currently off shore is forced north. the Global Forecast System (GFS) shows a Southeast mid and upper level flow developing. 1st over extreme southeast CA Friday, then reaching into Southern Mono County by Sunday. Thus the gates to dynamics and mid and upper level moisture will begin to increase by Late Saturday or Sunday.

Initially, TSRWs will be isolated Sunday. However, as time goes by, our air mass will become more saturated next week as the convective process builds. This will have the effect of adding moisture within the system from the top down over time. The effects of the monsoon process, IE South East Flow should not be focused so much on Moisture Advection….but rather, an increase of Dynamics as small scale features within the upper SE flow create opportunities for enhanced instability. Sure there is moisture advection, however, moisture advection at 700MB without a lifting mechanism is like gasoline without a spark.

Initially, storms will form and be focused within areas of surface convergence. Meaning they will be high based with small areal coverage. As time goes on, our air mass will juice up from that system. Eventually a combination of moisture advection and deeper moisture will arrive, and if a significant trigger (Easterly Wave or Vort Center) moves up from the South or South East; heavier rains may occur next week.

I guess you can say that with the advent of the AZ monsoon…the transition to a full on July Summer Pattern is complete.
