Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 2:59 am MDT on April 16, 2014


... Today in Metro Denver weather history...

13-17 in 2001... a huge dust storm over southern and inner mongolia
        during April 3rd through the 6th lifted desert dust into
        the jet stream. This dust cloud moved over Metro Denver
        on the 13th and persisted through the 17th. The cloud
        created widespread haze... giving the sky a milkish cast
        due to the scattering of incoming solar radiation.
15-16 in 1900... heavy rainfall totaled 2.33 inches. A trace of
        snow was mixed with the rain at times.
      In 1950... thunderstorms and heavy rain behind a cold front
        produced 2.13 inches of rain in 24 hours at Stapleton
        Airport.
      In 2003... a fast moving Pacific storm system moved across
        Colorado allowing strong winds to develop over the eastern
        foothills and Metro Denver. Northwest winds gusted to 59
        mph at Denver International Airport late in the evening of
        the 15th.
15-17 in 1922... heavy snowfall totaled 9.0 inches in downtown
        Denver. Most of the snow... 6.0 inches... fell on the 16th.
        This was the third major snow storm in a week. Northwest
        winds were sustained to 43 mph with gusts to 47 mph on the
        15th.
16 in 1960... a wind storm struck all of Metro Denver. Estimated
        wind gusts up to 80 mph were registered in Boulder. At
        Stapleton Airport sustained west-northwest winds over
        50 mph with gusts as high as 70 mph produced some blowing
        dust. The high winds damaged buildings... power and telephone
        lines... and signs. Five people were injured in Metro Denver
        as a result of the wind storm. Blowing dust reduced
        visibility at times. The winds were strong and gusty for
        most of the day.
16-17 in 1944... heavy snowfall totaled 7.5 inches in downtown
        Denver. Northwest winds were sustained to 18 mph on
        the 16th.
16-18 in 2009... a potent Spring storm brought heavy snow to locations
        in and near the Front Range foothills. A deep easterly
        upslope produced nearly 5 feet of snow in parts of the
        foothills. The heavy snow resulted in the closure of
        Interstate 70... from Golden West to Vail... for approximately
        16 hours. The heavy snow snapped power lines in Evergreen
        and Nederland. The ensuing outages affected 14200
        residents.
        In the Front Range foothills... storm totals included: 56
        inches... 3 miles south of rollinsville; 54 inches... 3 miles
        southeast of Pinecliffe... 43 inches at Aspen Springs... 42
        inches at Evergreen... 38 inches near conifer; 37 inches at
        St. Mary's Glacier... and 34 inches near Nederland.
        Along the urban corridor and Palmer Divide... the heaviest
        snow occurred above 5500 feet on the 17th. Storm totals
        included: 22 inches... 8.5 miles southwest of franktown; 18
        inches... 10 miles south-southeast of Buckley Air Force base;
        17 inches near Cherry Creek and 7 miles south of Sedalia...
        16 inches... 6.5 miles southwest of Castle rock; 15 inches
        near Beverly hills; 12 inches near Highlands Ranch and
        Lafayette... with 11 inches in Broomfield. Elsewhere storm
        totals ranged from 4 to 10 inches. Officially... only 2.6
        inches of snow was observed at Denver International Airport.
        The 24-hr precipitation for the day however was 1.16 inches...
        which established a new record for aprtil 17th.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
333 am MDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 333 am MDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Cold front associated with the passage of an upper level trough 
moving through Denver at this time. The initial trough is prognosticated 
to shift to the north and east this morning...with moderate qg 
descent in the middle and upper levels after 12z this morning. Areas 
of light snow in the high country with rain showers along the 
northern border. Much of this will decrease by 15z. Gusty winds 
will persist in the northern foothills and along the northern 
border this morning. It will be cooler today with northwesterly 
winds this morning becoming more nerly late this morning and into 
the afternoon. For tonight...the quantitative precipitation forecast generated by much of the models is 
forecast to be further south. As a result...have lowered the probability of precipitation 
over much of the County warning forecast area. Best chance of snow tonight will be in zones 
36...37 and 41. Do not anticipated much in the way of snow 
accumulation in those areas tonight...maybe an inch or two. 


Long term...(thursday through tuesday) 
issued at 333 am MDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


By 12z Thursday...models showing that the short wave will be east of 
Colorado. Will continue the downward trend in probability of precipitation for Thursday and 
will only mention a slight chance for the far eastern areas. An 
upper level ridge and warmer air will be quicker to move into the 
area. Raised high temperatures for Thursday with most locations 
climbing into the 60s. The upper level ridge will move across 
Colorado Friday causing temperatures to climb into the 70s 
over northeast Colorado. 


A weak upper level low will move from the Desert Southwest Friday 
night into Colorado on Saturday. At the surface...a cold front will 
push south across eastern Colorado. There will only be slight 
cooling behind the front and most locations across northeast 
Colorado should stay in the 60s. Moisture and instability will 
increase with this system. During the afternoon and evening... 
expect scattered to isolated showers and thunderstorms to form. This 
system will shift east of Colorado Sunday. This will allow 
temperatures to warm. May be enough instability and moisture for 
isolated showers. Plan on keeping low probability of precipitation in the forecast for 
Sunday afternoon and evening. 


A ridge will move across Colorado on Monday. On Tuesday...the ridge 
will be pushed east of the state by a deep upper level low moving 
into the Great Basin. This will cause flow aloft to turn southwest 
to southerly and increase. This will pump warm and dry air into the 
state. Could see highs near 80 on Tuesday if enough warm air is 
transported into the area. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 333 am MDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Cold front associated with the next system has moved into the 
Denver area this morning. North-northwesterly winds will continue through 15z 
then the winds will become more northeasterly. System is not expected to 
generate much precipitation over the Denver area but weak upslope is 
anticipated this afternoon. Best chance of showers will be over kbjc and 
kapa...will keep vcsh at kden this afternoon and evening. Should see broken 
ceilings 040-060 above ground level after 21-22z. As winds become southeasterly this 
evening...may see ceilings start to improve in the Denver area as the 
focus for any precipitation shifts further south,.
