NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
1103 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Update... 
issued at 1037 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Radars are showing a few light showers over the County Warning Area right 
now...with very minimal coverage. There area few more showers 
upstream in western Colorado right now. The latest models do show 
some cape around the County Warning Area this a afternoon and evening...but 
nothing significant. There are downsloping northwesterly winds 
over most of the plains right with dew points in the middle 40s to 
lower 50s f. May lower probability of precipitation a bit over the plains...as latest 
cross sections show a pretty decent middle level cap in place. 
$$ 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 324 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Radar shows an area of showers and isolated thunderstorms pushing 
northeast across central and western Colorado early this morning. 
They area moving east/northeast and will continue to spread across 
the forecast area this morning. Still some question as to whether 
or not these spill onto the plains but there is at least weak synoptic 
scale lift ahead of the trough axis to aid that cause. The bulk 
of this forcing will shift east of the forecast area for the 
afternoon hours...so redevelopment of convection will have to rely 
on daytime heating and middle level cooling associated with upper 
trough. As a result...highest coverage of showers/storms this 
afternoon should occur where cap will be weakest in/near the 
higher terrain and in areas that see more sunshine. Storm 
intensity will be limited by convective available potential energy less than 500 j/kg so no 
severe storms anticipated today. 


Temperatures will 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday with the 
cooling aloft and increase of clouds/convection. 


For tonight...convection is expected to decrease rather quickly 
with the loss of daytime heating and building subsidence. 
Clearing skies should allow for decent radiational cooling and low 
temperatures in the 50s on the plains and 30s/40s mountains. 


Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 324 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


The ridge will be over Arizona/new mx on Friday with a weak northerly 
flow aloft over Colorado. Not much in the way of quantitative precipitation forecast generated in 
the models...but will keep a slight chance over the mountains in the 
aftn/evng. Over the weekend...the ridge will build with the axis 
shifting more to the east of the state with a weak 
south/southwesterly flow aloft. Temperatures will climb back into 
the lower 90s for the weekend. The models try to push some 
subtropical moisture into the state by early next week. Will go with 
chance probability of precipitation in the mountains with slight chance of late day thunderstorms 
over the northeast plains. With a little more cloud cover over the 
state...temperatures may get offset by a degree or two next 
week.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Friday morning) 
issued at 1037 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Weak north to northwesterly winds are expected at dia this 
afternoon...then drainage patterns tonight. May drop tempo group 
in taf because convection by to quite limited. No ceiling issues

Bou watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
