National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado

Update... 
issued at 1014 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


A batch of cloudiness is pushing southeastward into the western 
County Warning Area right now in the northwesterly flow aloft behind the recent 
weak upper trough. The low level winds are pretty uniform across 
much of the County Warning Area at this time...northwesterly up to 35 miles per hour for the 
plains and bit higher in the mountains and foothills. The radar 
was showing some snow showers in and around The Divide. Will make 
some minor adjustments based on real data. 


&& 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 300 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


Main feature today will be weak upper level disturbance which will 
move across Colorado during the day. Moisture is rather limited 
with this system but the orographic flow will become more 
favorable from the west and northwest in the mountains as the day 
wears on. Will continue mainly chance probability of precipitation in the mountains and a 
bit higher in zone 31 with amounts up to a couple of inches by 
later this evening. As the trough moves across the state...increasing 
subsident flow by afternoon. This will help increase the winds on 
the plains as low levels mix out. Gusts up to 45 miles per hour can be 
expected on the plains before decreasing tonight as airmass 
decouples and strongest subsidence moves east of Colorado. 


Initially early this morning...gusty winds continue in the higher 
mountains and foothills. Have noted some gusts up to 50 miles per hour in 
wind prone areas as 88d still showing nice wind signature across 
western Boulder County. Cross sections show wave activity will 
decrease by middle morning as mountain top inversions dissipate and 
low levels mix out. As surface high pressure builds southward from 
Wyoming tonight...low level flow turns more northeast which may 
result in some stratus developing. Moisture looks shallow so don't 
expect any precipitation with this on the plains but could be a few 
showers over higher foothills. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 300 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


An upper level ridge will build into the area on Thursday as surface high 
pressure over eastern Colorado shifts eastward into the Central Plains by Thursday night. 
Cross-sections show limited moisture in the mountains through the afternoon so 
will only mention a slight chance of -shsn over the higher peaks. East 
of the mountains outside of some morning clouds will keep forecast dry. 
Highs on Thursday will finally drop back to seasonal levels over the 
plains. 


On Friday an upper level trough will become better organized over the 
southwestern US with south-southwest flow aloft. Satellite shows abundant moisture 
currently SW of the Baja California area which will move into the area. 
Despite abundant moisture lapse rates are rather marginal with only 
weak middle level ascent. Thus any snow will be light in the mountains with the 
best chance mainly south of I-70. Over northestern Colorado there will be a lot of 
clouds however at this point it appears it will be dry through the afternoon 
hours. As far as temperatures with abundant cloud cover highs may stay 
similar to Thursday despite a few degrees of warming in the 850-700 mb 
layer. 


For Friday night into Sat the upper level trough over the southwestern US will 
stay well south of the area as a weak upper level trough approaches from 
the northwest. Both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show a weak surge of cooler air 
moving into northestern Friday night into early Sat with weak upslope flow. 
Meanwhile at the same time weak middle level ascent is forecast across the 
area. However lapse rates are rather stable. Overall will keep in 
a good chance of light snow in the mountains with a chance of light precipitation over 
northestern Colorado. Wet bulb zeros become cold enough for precipitation to fall mainly 
as snow at lower elevations. As for highs will keep readings 
mostly in the middle to upper 30s over northestern Colorado. 


By Sat evening another surge of colder air will move into northestern Colorado 
with upslope flow as the weak upper level trough moves across. Thus 
could see another chance of light snow during the evening hours. In 
the mountains orographics will become more favorable Sat evening as the 
flow becomes more northwesterly. In addition lapse rates will become more 
unstable as well so should see a good chance of snow. 


On sun drier air will spread across the area in increasing northwesterly flow 
aloft. Appears enough moisture will linger in the mountains for a slight 
chance of -shsn. Over northestern Colorado will keep forecast dry with highs in the 
30s. 


For Monday and Tuesday rather strong west-northwest flow aloft will be over the area. 
Cross-sections show periods of moisture affecting the mountains both days 
with decent lapse rates especially Monday night through Tuesday. Thus this 
should lead to a favorable setup for periods of snow. At lower 
elevations a surface Lee trough will develop near the foothills on Monday 
with surface high pressure over the Central Plains. At this point it looks 
dry over northestern Colorado on Monday with highs ranging from the lower to middle 40s 
along the Front Range with middle to upper 30s over the far northestern 
corner.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Thursday morning) 
issued at 1014 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


It looks like the west-northwesterly winds have settled once and 
for all in at dia. Maximum gusts should be around 30 knots. There 
shouldn't be any ceiling issues.

Bou watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
