Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 426 am MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 Short term...(today through tonight ) issued at 426 am MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 A sharp upper level ridge over Colorado will deliver another dry and mostly sunny day for the end of the month. Some high level moisture will slip over the ridge and produce cirrus clouds at times this afternoon and tonight. Another thing to look out for is some patchy low clouds and fog developing over the northeast corner of the state around sunrise. Satellite imagery has been showing an area of stratus moving southwestward from central Nebraska all night...which should reach Sedgwick and Phillips counties by 6 am. Dew point depressions elsewhere on the northeast plains are down to 3 degrees or less...so we may see additional areas of stratus or fog develop over the next couple hours. If stratus develops in the South Platte valley between Fort Morgan and Greeley...then it may get drawn into the northern Denver metropolitan area for a few hours this morning. Southerly winds over the Palmer Divide are also expected to increase through the day as high pressure building over Nebraska and Kansas tightens the pressure gradient across eastern Colorado. The southerly winds should also induce a Denver cyclone which will keep advecting cool air from the Great Plains towards the foothills which will keep the afternoon highs cooler than previous days. High temperatures should end up right around seasonal normals for this time of year. Outdoor activities this evening should see no impact from the weather as temperatures cool from afternoon highs in the upper 50s to late evening readings in the lower to middle 40s. Long term...(saturday through thursday) issued at 426 am MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 An upper level trough will be over the western US on Sat as the upper level ridge shifts eastward. This leaves northern Colorado in southwesterly flow aloft with some increase in middle level moisture in the mountains by afternoon. With decent lapse rates over the higher terrain there will be a slight chance of showers mainly west of The Divide. Over northestern Colorado it will be dry with a surface Lee trough over the plains. Thus should see warmer temperatures across the plains with readings ranging from the middle to upper 60s over the far northestern corner with lower 70s along the Front Range. On sun the upper level trough over the western US will split as one piece of energy lifts north-northeast across the northern rockies while a second piece of energy moves into the Great Basin. This will leave northern Colorado in southwesterly flow aloft with an increase in moisture over the mountains favorable lapse rates along with some minor middle level ascent by afternoon will lead to a chance of showers in the mountains and highr valleys. Over northestern Colorado there will be an increase in middle level clouds with possibly a slight chance of -shra near the Wyoming border by late afternoon. As for highs increasing cloud cover combined with slight cooling in the 850-700 mb layer will keep highs in the middle to upper 60s across northestern Colorado. For Sun night into Monday the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show the upper level trough over the Great Basin moving eastward across the area. Combination of middle level ascent and favorable lapse rates should lead to a good chance of precipitation in the mountains and higher valleys. Orographics are weak through the period so snow amounts in the mountains will probably stay generally on the light side although some places could receive advisory amounts. Over northestern Colorado a cold fnt will move across the plains late Sun night into Monday morning with upslope flow to around 700 mb based on current GFS. As main upper level trough and associated middle level ascent move across on Monday one would think there would be a good chance of precipitation in and near the foothills and possibly across the plains as well. Soundings from the European model (ecmwf) would have precipitation falling mostly as snow along the Front Range on Monday while the GFS is warmer and keeps precipitation mostly rain. As for highs on Monday will keep readings in the 45 to 50 degree range over northestern Colorado although it could be colder if European model (ecmwf) is correct. By Monday night the upper level trough will gradually move east of the area with precipitation ending early Monday evening in most areas. By Tuesday drier air in northwest flow aloft will be over the area so will not mention any precipitation. Will keep highs in the 50s over northestern Colorado. For Wednesday and Thursday a flat upper level ridge will be over the area with dry conditions both days. 850-700 mb temperatures rise another 5 degees on Wednesday and then a few more degrees on Thursday. Thus highs should rise back into the lower to middle 60s over northestern Colorado on Wednesday and then from 65 to 70 on Thursday. && Aviation...(for the tafs through 12z Saturday morning) issued at 426 am MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 Winds this morning have been oscillating between drainage southerlies and easterlies as a Denver cyclone tries to develop. Later today should see the winds swing around to the east and northeast...and then northwest as the cyclone matures by early afternoon. Dew point depressions in the Denver area are currently large enough that low clouds should not develop. However...cooler and moister air is not too far away...in the South Platte River Valley from between Greeley and Fort Morgan eastward. There is a chance that patchy fog or stratus could develop in the River Valley and then move into kden for a few hours. Will keep the mention of vcfg in the next taf issuance. Otherwise...no aviation impacts are expected through the next 24 hours. && Bou watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Short term...dankers long term...rpk aviation...dankers
