Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 304 PM MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 Short term...(this evening through wednesday) issued at 304 PM MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 A Pacific system pushing into Colorado will continue to increase shower coverage over the mountains this afternoon before spreading out over the plains. The main cold front is back over western Wyoming into central Utah. Looking at satellite however and monitoring model trends...expecting a push late this afternoon with west winds coming off the high terrain and onto the plains. Most of the energy of this system is heading north of the area however...so after these two waves tonight where numerous showers will pass over the mountains...should see activity trending down after midnight. With snow levels lowering between 9000 and 10,000 feet...expect a couple inches of snow possible above this with locally higher amounts under stronger convective showers. A few showers that will be pushing out on the plains will encounter dry air so initially will likely see virga and gusty outflow winds. Then just isolated to scattered activity pushing east through the night. The surface low will sink south into southern Colorado Wednesday as the cold front pushes south through the state. This will allow weak upslope flow over the plains and will help scattered showers to again establish in the high terrain. With downward qg vertical motion...weak cape...and the main trough east of the area...have lowered the chance of precipitation over the area. Temperatures will be about 5 to 10 degrees cooler compared to today...bringing readings back closer to normal for this time of year. Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) issued at 304 PM MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 Most of the long term forecast period will be a continuation of the recent autumn warm spell. From Thursday through Saturday...high heights with mild and weak westerly flow aloft will prevail across the state. Temperatures on Friday and Saturday may approach or exceed record levels for the Denver area. The record high on both days is 80 degrees. As the dry and stable airmass remains over the region...chances for precipitation will be zero. Changes in the pattern will arrive on Sunday and Monday as the GFS and European model (ecmwf) are in agreement with a progressive and vigorous upper trough sweeping over the state Sunday night and Monday. Temperatures on Sunday will be almost 10 degrees cooler than Saturday as cloud cover increases ahead of the approaching trough. A cold front will move in Sunday night along with the chance of showers from the mountains and then across the plains. A cloudy and unsettled day on Monday should also have high temperatures a few degrees cooler than normal. The upper trough is expected to move through quickly with drier air moving back over the state by Monday night. Tuesday should then be dry with highs back to just above normal. && Aviation...(for the tafs through 00z Wednesday late afternoon) issued at 304 PM MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 A weak Denver cyclone has formed early this afternoon near or just southwest of kden...making wind direction forecasting challenging for the next few hours. Still expecting the convective showers already forming over the mountains and foothills push off enough to switch all the light and variable winds to be west...potentially gusty from outflow. This push is still depicted in hires models around 22-00z. Westerly winds should decrease slightly before another northerly push comes after 09z from main associated cold front...although this may be barely noticeable. Winds should end up upslope by the late morning to afternoon. Clouds will continue to increase as a Pacific system moves into Colorado. Not much low level moisture with this system...so expect ceilings to remain above 6000 feet through tonight. Best chance for showers is 00z-06z...then not again until Wednesday afternoon as upslope flow is expected to develop. Ceilings should again stay above 6000ft. && Bou watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Short term...kriederman long term...dankers aviation...kriederman
