NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
341 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Short term...(this evening through wednesday) 
issued at 320 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Very dry airmass in place this afternoon with warm temperatures in 
the middle 70s to lower 80s. Looks too dry for thunderstorms today 
so will leave forecast dry. Stronger south to southwest winds will 
develop on the plains tonight but should be enough humidity 
recovery to not need any fire hilites across the plains. 


The high pressure ridge axis aloft is across Colorado this 
afternoon and will be shifting east into the Central Plains 
tonight and Wednesday. This will be replaced with stronger 
westerly flow aloft tonight along with increasing middle and high 
level moisture. Cross sections also show increasing winds in the 
mountains tonight. Already seeing some gusts in the 30-40 miles per hour 
range over mountain passes this afternoon. 


A frontal boundary will begin to move across northeast Colorado 
Wednesday afternoon as winds shift north and northeast. This 
combined with some increase in moisture and marginal instability 
will bring a threat of showers and even a few thunderstorms to the 
area. With approaching jet aloft into western Colorado by late 
afternoon and weak upward ascent will bump probability of precipitation up a bit most 
areas by late Wednesday afternoon. 


There is some marginal fire weather concerns across southern 
Lincoln County Wednesday afternoon with some gusts around 20 miles per hour 
and low humidities. The areal and time extend look too small for 
a fire weather hilite. 


Long term...(wednesday night through tuesday) 
issued at 320 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Being under the left exit region of the jet along with convective available potential energy 
around 200-400 j/kg...expect showers and a few thunderstorms to 
continue Wednesday evening...especially over the northeastern 
plains. The simulated NAM infrared imagery nicely shows a few storms 
heading east-northeast across the plains. The surface flow behind 
the afternoon's cold front will turn more upslope through the 
night while cold air pushes south into the area. The eastern Front 
Range mountains and foothills will start to see the transition 
from showers to more stratiform precipitation Wednesday evening...with 
snow levels beginning around 9500 feet mean sea level and dropping to near 6000 
feet by sunrise. Upward qg vertical velocity will start increasing 
after midnight to spread rain over the urban corridor and adjacent 
plains. According to forecast soundings...shouldn't see any 
snowflakes mix in over the plains until near sunrise or so. 


Upward qg vertical velocity really increases Thursday...and the 
airmass becomes potentially unstable and will allow for the 
potential of banding. The jet will be over southern Colorado...not 
the best position...however enough vertical shear and qg should 
negate that. There are hints of this in the model precipitation patterns 
as well. Rain and snow will increase during the snow...with snow 
levels wavering between 5000 and 6000 feet. If banding or convection 
does occur...this could produce extra cooling to change rain over 
to snow...but likely in narrow bands over the plains. Lowered maximum 
temperatures Thursday due to model trends...which may help the 
possibility of more snow to rain. The upper trough will begin 
moving out of the area Thursday evening slowly...with colder 
temperatures pushing south into the state. Look for rain to change 
over to all snow for the evening and night...to diminish Friday 
late morning. Current thinking for snowfall totals will be less 
than 2 inches over the eastern plains...2 to 4 inches for areas 
closer to the foothills and Palmer Divide...3 to 6 inches for the 
foothills...and 5 to 10 inches for the mountains. This is a very 
early broad forecast as the potential banding will vary this quite 
a bit...and recent warm temperatures will melt quite a lot of the 
snow that falls initially...and possibly through the storm. 
Temperatures below freezing Friday night may allow for some roads 
to have ice form. 


Friday will remain cool but will dry out with skies clearing. Look 
for temperatures to remain cooler than average for the day. 
Saturday through Monday will return to warm and dry weather. 
Tuesday will see another Pacific system approach for a slight 
chance of showers in the mountains.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 00z Wednesday late afternoon) 
issued at 320 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Light south to southeast winds at den/apa this afternoon and looks 
like they will try and go more westerly later this afternoon. 
Already can see a boundary just pushing out off the foothills 
across northern Jefferson and Boulder counties. Suspect some of 
this wind will push east between 22z-23z. Increasing middle-hi level 
moisture will move into terminals later tonight. Cold front will 
move into airports later Wednesday afternoon with a chance of 
showers developing. May need to introduce a prob30 with 00z taf 
issuance.
