NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
210 PM MDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Short term...(this evening through monday) 
issued at 137 PM MDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Radar showing storms moving into the mountains and south from the 
Wyoming border. Convection will continue to develop and move over 
east-southeast over the plains through the evening hours. Precipitable water values are 
around 0.85 inches so main threats will be brief heavy rain and 
gusty winds up to 40 miles per hour with the stronger storms. Conditions will 
be partly cloudy overnight for the plains while staying mostly 
cloudy over the mountains with lows into the lower 60s. 


For Monday an upper level disturbance to the SW will move into 
central Colorado through the day increasing moisture across most 
of the western and central portions of the state. This will keep 
isolated storms over the mountains into the morning increasing in 
coverage by the afternoon hours. Weak ascent for tomorrow 
afternoon will help to bring some convection over the plains by 
the afternoon. Kept chance to likely probability of precipitation for the mountains and 
slight chance on the plains for tomorrow afternoon. Precipitable water values will 
once again increase close to 1 inch by the late afternoon tomorrow 
so expect another round of heavy rain and winds with storm 
passage. 


Long term...(monday night through sunday) 
issued at 137 PM MDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Monday night into Tuesday morning...weak middle level qg ascent will 
be present over the northeast plains as the trough moves into 
central Wyoming. The best thunderstorm coverage will shift from the mountains to 
the far northeast plains. The upper ridge will build back over 
Colorado Tuesday afternoon and continue to do so through 
Wednesday. As a result...middle level subsidence will increase...with 
warmer temperatures on Wednesday and less thunderstorm coverage. 
By Thursday...another system will move out of the northern rockies 
and pass through Wyoming. As it does the ridge will get suppressed 
to the south and east with weak qg ascent developing over northern 
Colorado late Thursday afternoon and Thursday night. Should again 
see some increase in thunderstorm coverage especially along the northern 
border. On Friday...the center of the ridge will shift over North 
Texas with the flow aloft west/southwesterly. Some weak qg ascent 
moving into western and northern Colorado in the aftn/evng...maybe enough to 
spark a chance of afternoon/evening thunderstorms. By the weekend...the 
flow aloft will be more favorable for subtropical moisture to slip 
back into Colorado from the southwest. As a result...more clouds 
with better thunderstorm coverage expected...especially over the 
high country. Overall temperatures will run cooler than normal with 
the exception of Wednesday...likely the warmest day of the period.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 00z Monday late afternoon) 
issued at 137 PM MDT sun Aug 2 2015 


VFR conditions to remain VFR until late Monday for den...apa and 
bjc. Ceilings will increase through the evening with a broken deck 
getting down to 080 with some isolated rainshowers that are 
prognosticated to move through by 02 to 03z. Winds will be somewhat 
variable and gusting up to 30 miles per hour with storms developing to the 
west and north of the Airport. Winds will switch around to 
drainage by late evening.
