NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
923 am MST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Update... 
issued at 923 am MST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Radar showing a band snow still hanging on over the northeast 
corner of the state. Raised probability of precipitation for this through the morning 
where up to an additional inch of snow will be possible. Increased 
winds along Highway 285 across Park County for today. Observations 
showing gusts t0 60 miles per hour here...the rap and hrrr show these strong 
winds continuing through middle afternoon. Increased the forecast to 
indicate gusts to 70 miles per hour will be possible. 


Plan on letting the Winter Weather Advisory expire at noon. Web 
cameras just showing light snow in places. In general...conditions 
are starting improve in the high country...though many roads are 
still snow covered. 


&& 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 222 am MST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Northwest flow aloft will continue over the area today. Cross-sections 
still show enough moisture in the mountains combined with marginal lapses 
which will lead to additional snowfall through the morning hours before 
diminishing in the afternoon as drier air begins to advect in. Meanwhile 
gusty northwest winds will continue as well so expect blowing snow mainly 
above 10000 feet thus will extend advisory through noon. 


At lower elevations northestern Colorado remains on the backside of an upper 
level jet which will allow for some additional banded precipitation through 
the morning hours across the plains. Most of the activity will 
focus east-northeast of a Greeley to Limon line. Weak upslope along the Front 
Range may lead to some very light snow/flurries as well through middle 
morning. By midday should precipitation chances end over the plains. As for 
highs there could be quite a range over northestern Colorado with readings in 
the lower 50s around Denver while further NE over the plains highs 
stay in the 30s. 


For tonight outside of a few -shsn in the mountains this evening it 
should be dry. A mountain wave will develop overnight with Cross-Mountain 
flow in the 40-45 knots range. Thus will see gusty winds in the higher 
mountains and foothill areas but speeds should stay below high wind 
criteria. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 222 am MST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


A drying and warming trend will be the main features from Thursday 
through Saturday as temperatures climb above normal for this time 
of year. For Thursday...a drying airmass will be in place as the 
flow aloft remains from the northwest with downslope flow. Cross 
sections show strong west to northwest flow increasing at mountain 
top through the day but with lack of mountain top stability 
expect much of the higher winds to be confined to the mountains 
passes and higher east slopes with gusts up to 70 miles per hour possible. 


For Friday and Saturday...the flow aloft becomes more westerly 
under a very dry airmass. There will be continued gusty winds over 
the mountains and higher east slopes with gusts up to 70 miles per hour but 
again higher winds will be more confined to higher areas. 
Temperatures will continue to warm over lower elevations with 
readings flirting into the upper 60s and lower 70s and possible 
record highs if we get enough low level mixing and downslope flow. 
Similar conditions expected for Saturday under strong westerly 
flow aloft and continued above normal temperatures for this time 
of year. 


For Sunday...an upper trough sweeps across the northern High Plains 
which sends an associated cold front into northeast Colorado late 
in the day. The result will be cooler temperatures but still 
looks too dry for any precipitation. 


By late Monday and Tuesday...long range models are in considerable 
disagreement with the large scale features. The GFS shows 
increasing moisture ahead of a Pacific disturbance. On the other 
hand the European has a northwest flow pattern with some embedded 
showers. For now will maintain just a slight chance of snow 
showers in the mountains on Tuesday. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Thursday morning) 
issued at 923 am MST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Snow will come to an end today over the mountains and northeast 
plains...while the Denver area is expected to remain snow free 
today. The low clouds will continue to burn off in the Denver 
area...and expected VFR conditions through out the Denver area by 
18z. Winds will remain on the light side...today and tonight. Wind 
direction will be easterly today and then turn southerly after 
00z.
