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. && Bou watches/warnings/advisories...
