NWS Forecaster Discussion




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.
