NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
426 PM MDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Short term...(this evening through saturday) 
issued at 415 PM MDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Negative tilt upper trough anchored to a closed low presently over 
the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado is prognosticated to swing northeastward 
over northern and eastern Colorado overnight. A light to moderate 
southeasterly flow ahead of this trough continues to provide ample 
moisture and lift necessary to generate widespread precipitation 
over northeast Colorado today. Precipitation has primarily been snow 
since late this morning...although there are still pockets of 
rainfall across far northeast Colorado...such as the moderate 
rainfall at Sterling. However with temperatures just above freezing 
and enough solar energy filtering through the overcast...there has 
not been snow accumulation on the plains...except along the Palmer 
Divide in Douglas and Elbert counties. Received a snow depth report 
of 14 inches near the town of Matheson southeast corner of zone 41. 
This looks very localized. Snow amounts across this zone generally 
in the 3-8 inch range. As for the Front Range mountains...foothills and 
South Park zones under the Winter Storm Warning...snow accums with 
this storm marginally reached warning criteria. High Country Road 
ways also saw little if any snow accumulation. 


Radar shows a sharp southern edge to the precipitation band lifting north 
over northestern Colorado at this time. This edge has reached southern Lincoln County. 
And is expected to the Interstate 70 corridor around Denver by 02z 
this evening...and much sooner than that for the Limon area. With 
cooling temperatures and a lowering sun angle...there's a better for snow 
accumulation on the plains...as well as the East Face of the Front 
Range during this period. However additional snow amounts on the 
Front Range and South Park would not warrant holding onto the Winter 
Storm Warning. A Winter Weather Advisory would suffice. It'll still 
run until 06z tonight. Lastly added fog to the plains and foothills 
forecast for the remainder of the night. Visibilities anywhere from a 
quarter mile to 4 miles through the evening. 


On Saturday...models show the upper low still impacting northeast 
Colorado for most of the day. Moisture wrapping around the back side 
of this low and a cool north-northwesterly wind should keep the forecast area 
unseasonably cool and unsettled. Qg vertical velocity fields show a lobe of middle- 
level lift swinging down from southeastern Wyoming during the morning likely 
resulting in an upturn in precipitation coverage across the northestern 
plains and northern Front Range. Light snow accumulations a possibility. 
Later in the day...the County Warning Area gradually comes under the influence of 
drier air and subsidence as the upper low continues to pull away. 
There precipitation chances should likewise decrease from southwest to 
northeast during the afternoon. Temperatures next 24 hours well 
below average with high temperatures on Saturday generally 3-6 degree f warmer 
than those today. 


Long term...(saturday night through friday) 
issued at 415 PM MDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


There will be a break between systems Saturday night and Sunday 
morning. However it will remain cloudy with lots of moisture and a 
shallow unstable layer near the ground...so a low chance of light 
showers or drizzle is in order. There may be widespread drippiness 
but not expecting much in the way of accumulation. There was some 
thought of freezing drizzle earlier...but it appears temperatures 
will generally be above freezing with warm and wet roads. If there 
were upslope winds I would be concerned with a ribbon of 
fog/freezing drizzle in the foothills but it looks like this will 
not be the case. 


There is a little better agreement and definition of a wave 
passing over and south of US on Sunday into Monday. The best lift 
should be to the south...and is generally weak...but it will be 
working on a pretty favorable environment with plenty of moisture 
and a shallow unstable layer. So it may not be hard to generate 
widespread light precipitation again. Raised probability of precipitation for this 
period...not ready to commit to the widespread precipitation 
everywhere yet. Temperatures should be a little warmer than they 
are now and precipitation should be lighter...so there should be less 
impact than what we are seeing today. Still probably some snow 
though...at least above 5000 feet. There are timing differences on 
the clearing of this system on Monday...trends are toward moving 
the higher level lift out early Monday but with low level moisture 
lingering much of the day. 


A ridge will build over US for the rest of the week. A wrinkle 
that developed in last nights European model (ecmwf) is persisting today...a low 
that develops over Saskatchewan and drops into the western U.S. 
If this does occur...and it is a minority opinion...it is probably 
not much of a weather maker but could hold back the warming and 
generate some cloud cover...mainly affecting Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Pretty warm by the end of the week...we could be back 
near 80. There is increasing consensus on a big low moving into 
the west for next weekend...so we could be back to cool and wet by 
Sunday. Way too early for any confidence or details yet...a 
Pacific system would probably not be real cold...likely warmer 
than the current system.

Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Saturday evening) 
issued at 415 PM MDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Ils ceilings and visibilities at Denver area airports through middle- 
evening...then gradual improvement with ceilings rising above 3000 feet 
after midnight. Winds variable in direction at speeds generally 
under 8 kts. On Saturday...snow chances should increase again in 
the morning with a weak disturbance swinging down form Wyoming. 
Could see light accumulation and ils ceilings and Denver area 
airports through 18z. Then gradual improvement with rising ceilings 
and visibilities with drier air spreading down from Wyoming on northerly 
winds.
