Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 806 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Update... issued at 801 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Outflow boundaries form previous convection have raced across the plains and limited convective development except over the far northestern corner. Meanwhile a cold front has just moved through cys with cooler air behind it which will move across the area. May see showers and a few storms develop behind the fnt through midnight. && Short term...(this afternoon through monday) issued at 239 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Lightning is exploding in the moisture plume from Arizona to Wyoming. This is due to the lift associated with an upper trough in northwest Colorado and a moist and marginally unstable airmass. We still expect thunderstorms to continue to develop over the high country and spread east this afternoon. As the upper trough slides east...there are indications that we will have some subsidence and downsloping behind the trough. As a result have lowered probability of precipitation along the urban corridor for several hours tonight...while keeping likely probability of precipitation in the northeast plains. Forecast convective available potential energy a little over a 1000 may result in a severe thunderstorm in the far northeast...otherwise thunderstorms late afternoon and evening will be capable of wind gusts to 45 miles per hour and locall heavy rain... but expected storm motion will limit the threat of flash flooding. A cold front will spread south from Wyoming this evening...with gradual moistening later tonight. Models showed the development of stratus...but did not agree with much else for Monday. Bcconsall looked reasonable for temperatures...for probability of precipitation on Monday it looks as though the plains will be capped...but with upslope areas from the Front Range to the Continental Divide getting scattered to likely rain in the form of showers and a few thunderstorms in the morning and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Expect low clouds early...but cloudy most of the day with rising ceilings. Long term...(monday night through saturday) issued at 239 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Monsoonal pattern starts to come together to bring increased moisture into the region for next week. On Monday night into Tuesday the upper level pattern remains zonal with the closed low continuing to progress northward along the Pacific coast. NE flow upslope will increase along the foothills and Palmer Divide that will keep a chance of showers into the evening for the plains. Thunderstorm activity will stay isolated over the higher terrain but could result in periods of heavy rain as precipitable waters remain above 1 inch. For Tuesday the upper level flow starts to switch to a more SW direction that will aid in continuing to bring moisture north into Colorado. Surface flow will be from the southeast. Thunderstorms will develop over the mountains during the afternoon with showers over the plains. The far NE plains should remain relatively stable with showers closer to the foothills. Highs on Tuesday will remain cooler than normal only getting into the upper 70s and lower 80s. For the latter half of the week the ridge over the Great Basin amplifies as the low over the Pacific pushes inland. Upper level flow remains west-southwest with steady moisture flow from the south. This will keep a slight chance of afternoon shower and thunderstorm development for the region. Temperatures will steadily increase through the week into the upper 80s to lower 90s by Sunday as the ridge continues to build. && Aviation...(for the tafs through 06z Monday evening) issued at 801 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Cold front has moved through cys with low ceilings and gusty NE winds behind fnt. Looks like fnt will move across dia between 10 PM and 11 PM with lower ceilings developing along with a chance of showers. && Bou watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Update...rpk short term...rtg long term...Bowen aviation...rtg
