Update... 
issued at 853 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


There have been a couple of rounds of convection that fired 
behind the main batch of severe storms on the eastern 
plains...but overall storm intensity and coverage will continue to 
decrease through the course of the evening as airmass stabilizes. 
Some weak lift should resume later tonight into Friday morning per 
latest water vapor imagery and short wave dropping southeast from 
Wyoming. This will help to bring a few more rain showers back to 
the high country and northern border area...with snow levels 
perhaps dropping into the High Mountain valleys by daybreak. 
Chance of rain will increase behind a weak front early Friday 
morning...but more widespread showers and a few thunderstorms 
expected behind a stronger frontal surge by late morning through 
the afternoon.

Short term...(this evening through friday) 
issued at 252 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


There is pretty good convection going over the plains right now. 
Hail over an inch has been reported with some of the cells. There 
are boundaries all over the place. The water vapor pictures are 
showing another decent batch of convection upstream in eastern 
Utah and western Colorado...again associated with the approaching 
trough axis. Models show the weak upper trough axis to push across 
the County Warning Area this evening and tonight. By Friday afternoon...a weak 
upper ridge is moving across Colorado. The flow aloft is pretty 
weak tonight and weak northerly on Friday. Models have a tad of 
weak upward qg vertical velocity for the northeast quarter of the 
County Warning Area tonight into Friday morning...then all downward for all the 
County Warning Area for the first two periods. The boundary layer flow is mainly 
north and northeasterly tonight and Friday for much of the County Warning Area. 
Concerning moisture...there is a lot tonight and Friday. The dew 
points are in the middle 40s to middle 50s f this evening...then mostly 
the 40s f overnight and Friday. There is some cape around this 
evening...mostly over the eastern half of the County Warning Area. Values are over 
1000 j/kg over the far eastern border areas. There is cape for 
all the County Warning Area on Friday...but nothing over 1000 j/kg. It will likely 
not get very warm on Friday with all the cloudiness expected. 
There is some measurable precipitation over all the County Warning Area most of 
tonight and Friday too. The greatest amounts are prognosticated this 
evening over the eastern County Warning Area. Will keep probability of precipitation going overnight...but 
low after 06z. By late morning Friday will go with "likely"s for 
much of the County Warning Area. For temperatures...friday's highs look to be 3-7 
c cooler than today's. 


Long term...(friday night through thursday) 
issued at 252 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Trough will move east of Colorado Friday night. Some disagreement 
about how fast the clearing/drying will come. NAM continues to be 
faster suggesting lots of clearing early Monday morning...while 
the operational GFS remains slowest/wettest and still has 
significant rain in the foothills Friday evening. Will stick with 
the idea of a compromise shaded toward the drier solutions...I 
left the evening probability of precipitation as they were but sped up the departure of 
the weather by a few hours. This has only minimal probability of precipitation on the 
southern border and in the mountains early Saturday morning. After 
that it will be warming and drying aloft and should be too stable 
for much afternoon convection...though I did leave some low 
afternoon probability of precipitation in the mountains. Models have trended warmer for 
Saturday which fits the slightly earlier timing and more sunshine. 


For Sunday through Tuesday a warm Dry Ridge will move over. There 
has been a trend toward warmer temperatures which looks alright 
though I did hold back a few degrees due to the moist ground. 
We will be near 80 on Sunday which could be the first 80 in 
may...then low to middle 80s for Monday and Tuesday look good. Models 
have flipped for the middle to late week trough...but the consensus 
is the same. Some models show a weak lead trough moving through 
about Wednesday which would bring a little cooling and perhaps a 
bit more low level moisture for some increase in thunderstorm 
activity. Others lack this and would have little change through 
the end of the week. Main feature is the upstream trough which 
will keep a warm and mainly dry southwest flow aloft over US. 
Consensus forecast is fine which shows a little cooling and slight 
increase in probability of precipitation starting Wednesday...but probably not a big 
change.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 06z Friday evening) 
issued at 853 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Thunderstorm threat is shifting to the southeast of the Front 
Range airports at the present time. Could still see a few rain 
showers in the overnight hours but main period of showers and a 
few storms should occur from around 16z Friday to 01z Saturday. 
Instrument landings expected through that time period due to lower 
ceilings...as well as possible MVFR conditions in and near 
showers. Winds should trend light southerly tonight and then to 
northerly by 12z-16z Friday with passage of cold front. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
issued at 853 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Heavy rainfall threat this evening is quickly diminishing as 
airmass stabilizes. More widespread rainfall is expected 
Friday...but again it should mainly be light with a low risk of 
localized flooding and little effect on the larger rivers. The 
Cache la poudre river in Greeley will remain right near flood 
stage this weekend...while the South Platte downstream will be 
slowly falling. 


By early next week warm temperatures will lead to increasing 
snowmelt...leading to high flows on rivers and streams in the 
mountains. This water will progress downstream during the next 
week so high flows will continue on the South Platte.
