Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 2:59 am MDT on September 19, 2014


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

15-19 in 1906... rain on 5 consecutive days totaled 1.61 inches.
        A thunderstorm occurred on the 17th. High temperatures
        ranged from 48 degrees on the 16th to 65 degrees on the
        15th. Low temperatures were in the lower to mid 40's.
16-19 in 1971... a record breaking early fall snow storm caused
        extensive damage to trees and utility lines. The heavy wet
        snow occurred with little wind... but caused record breaking
        cold temperatures for so early in the season. Snowfall
        totaled 15.6 inches at Stapleton International Airport
        with most of the snowfall... 12.0 inches... occurring on the
        17th. This was the heaviest first snow of the season.
        The maximum snow depth on the ground was 13 inches.
        Record low temperatures were set on three consecutive days:
        31 degrees on the 17th... 23 degrees on the 18th... and 20
        degrees on the 19th... which was also a new all-time record
        minimum for the month at that time. Record low maximum
        temperatures were set on 4 consecutive days: 48 degrees
        on the 16th... 35 degrees on the 17th... 40 degrees on the 18th...
        and 42 degrees on the 19th.
18-19 in 1955... heavy rains caused flash flooding across portions of
        Metro Denver. Rainfall totaled 1.71 inches at Stapleton
        Airport.
19 in 1955... hail stones to 2 1/2 inches in diameter were

        automobile windshields.
      In 1963... hail to 3/4 inch in diameter fell in Westminster.
      In 1983... an unusually strong cold front roared through
        Metro Denver during the afternoon hours. At Stapleton
        International Airport... the temperature dropped 51 degrees...
        from a sunny 86 degrees to a snowy 35 degrees... in just 7
        hours. Strong winds and a wall of blowing dust followed
        the front. Northeast winds gusting to 36 mph briefly
        reduced the surface visibility to 1 mile in blowing dust
        at Stapleton International Airport where only a trace of
        snow fell later.
      In 1996... high winds gusting to 84 mph were measured at
        Golden Gate Canyon in the foothills west of Denver.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
336 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Current high pressure ridge axis is now over eastern Colorado 
with a continued dry and stable airmass in place. During the day 
today...the ridge will flatten and shift into the Central Plains 
as a weak trough sweeps across the northern plains states. An 
associated weak cold front will push southward over northeast 
Colorado this morning as winds shift northeast. Current surface 
observations and radar imagery showing front moving across 
southeast Wyoming and should be through cys around 11z. Not much 
cold air behind the front but should be a few degrees cooler than 
Thursday with weak upslope flow this afternoon. 


Overall moisture levels will slowly increase this afternoon and 
evening on the tail end of this trough. Most of the shower activity 
will be in the mountains and higher terrain of the cys ridge. 
Could see a few showers/storms drift off the hills and onto the 
plains. Overall coverage over lower elevations will be isolated 
and mainly not until late afternoon/evening hours. 


Long term...(saturday through thursday) 
issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


An upper high and ridge are over the County Warning Area Saturday through Sunday 
night. The flow aloft is west-northwesterly Saturday and Saturday 
night...then westerly Sunday and Sunday night. For much of the 
time weak upward synoptic scale energy is prognosticated for the County Warning Area. The 
low levels winds are prognosticated to be upslope on Saturday...then 
southeasterly on Sunday with a Denver cyclone a good bet. Moisture 
certainly increases through the periods...with quite a bit prognosticated 
Sunday night into the extended periods. The precipitable water 
values are prognosticated in the 0.40 west to 1.00 inch east Saturday and 
Saturday night. By Sunday they increase into the 0.60 to 1.30 inch 
range form west to east...with over an inch over much of the 
plains. The boundary layer dew points range from the middle 40s f 
west to widespread 50s f over the plains Saturday and Saturday 
night. By Sunday and Sunday night...60s f readings are proged to 
cover the plains. There is some cape over the County Warning Area late day 
Saturday...mostly over the foothills and Palmer Ridge. There is a 
bit more prognosticated for late day Sunday and it is over most of the 
County Warning Area. The quantitative precipitation forecast fields have no measurable rainfall for the County Warning Area 
Saturday morning...then some over the high country and Palmer 
Ridge by afternoon and evening. After midnight...there is quite a 
bit proged for the plains. The entire County Warning Area has measurable rainfall 
in place Sunday and Sunday night. For probability of precipitation will go with 20-40%s 
for the high country Saturday and Saturday evening. For overnight 
Saturday night and Sunday morning...20-30% probability of precipitation will be good for 
all the County Warning Area. Will up that into the 30-50% range the rest of Sunday 
and Sunday night. For temperatures...saturday's highs are 3-8 c 
cooler than today's expected highs. Sunday's look similar to 
saturday's. For the later days...Monday through Thursday...a weak 
upper trough is prognosticated over Colorado Monday into early Tuesday 
..then upper ridging moves back in through Thursday of next week. 
The cooler temperatures and ample moisture from Sunday is prognosticated 
into early Tuesday morning. Moisture dries out and temperatures 
climb a bit for the rest of Tuesday through Thursday.

Aviation...(for the tafs through 12z Saturday morning) 
issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 


Healthy drainage winds early this am but will shift north and 
northeast between 14-16z. Expect most of the showers today will be 
confined to mountains. Could be an isolated storm that drifts over 
lower elevations but coverage not high enough to include in 
current tafs.
