Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 1103 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 Update... issued at 1037 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 Radars are showing a few light showers over the County Warning Area right now...with very minimal coverage. There area few more showers upstream in western Colorado right now. The latest models do show some cape around the County Warning Area this a afternoon and evening...but nothing significant. There are downsloping northwesterly winds over most of the plains right with dew points in the middle 40s to lower 50s f. May lower probability of precipitation a bit over the plains...as latest cross sections show a pretty decent middle level cap in place. $$ Short term...(today through tonight ) issued at 324 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 Radar shows an area of showers and isolated thunderstorms pushing northeast across central and western Colorado early this morning. They area moving east/northeast and will continue to spread across the forecast area this morning. Still some question as to whether or not these spill onto the plains but there is at least weak synoptic scale lift ahead of the trough axis to aid that cause. The bulk of this forcing will shift east of the forecast area for the afternoon hours...so redevelopment of convection will have to rely on daytime heating and middle level cooling associated with upper trough. As a result...highest coverage of showers/storms this afternoon should occur where cap will be weakest in/near the higher terrain and in areas that see more sunshine. Storm intensity will be limited by convective available potential energy less than 500 j/kg so no severe storms anticipated today. Temperatures will 10-15 degrees cooler than yesterday with the cooling aloft and increase of clouds/convection. For tonight...convection is expected to decrease rather quickly with the loss of daytime heating and building subsidence. Clearing skies should allow for decent radiational cooling and low temperatures in the 50s on the plains and 30s/40s mountains. Long term...(friday through wednesday) issued at 324 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 The ridge will be over Arizona/new mx on Friday with a weak northerly flow aloft over Colorado. Not much in the way of quantitative precipitation forecast generated in the models...but will keep a slight chance over the mountains in the aftn/evng. Over the weekend...the ridge will build with the axis shifting more to the east of the state with a weak south/southwesterly flow aloft. Temperatures will climb back into the lower 90s for the weekend. The models try to push some subtropical moisture into the state by early next week. Will go with chance probability of precipitation in the mountains with slight chance of late day thunderstorms over the northeast plains. With a little more cloud cover over the state...temperatures may get offset by a degree or two next week. && Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Friday morning) issued at 1037 am MDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 Weak north to northwesterly winds are expected at dia this afternoon...then drainage patterns tonight. May drop tempo group in taf because convection by to quite limited. No ceiling issues && Bou watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Update...rjk short term...barjenbruch long term...Cooper aviation...rjk
