NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
905 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Update... 
issued at 905 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


All snow shower activity has dissipated and skies across the 
forecast area are mostly clear. Temperatures have already 
plummeted at some of the favored cold spots...like Limon and 
Walden...which are below zero. Snow cover will allow more 
locations to drop to the zero degree mark. Drainage winds will 
then kick induring the early morning hours...causing temperatures 
to rise a little. Mostly clear skies should prevail...unless 
patchy fog develops in the Platte River basin between Denver and 
Greeley. Other than removing the mention of evening snow 
showers...no changes to the forecast are needed. 


Update issued at 557 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


Just a couple lingering flurries and a few clouds over the 
mountains and Denver metropolitan area. These will be dissipating very 
soon with a mostly clear and very cold night across the forecast 
area. Adjusted temperatures downward a few degrees in snow covered low 
lying areas where winds will be nearly calm overnight...allowing 
strong radiational cooling. Should see a few below zero readings 
on the plains and even dia could quickly drop to around zero this 
evening before drainage winds kick in overnight. 


&& 


Short term...(this evening through thursday) 
issued at 109 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


With lingering moisture and low level instability in the boundary 
layer combined with upslope near the foothills some convective 
snow has formed over eastern Boulder County. These 
snow showers will continue through the afternoon before winds 
switch over to a more southwesterly direction this evening. In 
addition isolated snow showers continue in the mountains until 
later this evening. Ceilings will clear overnight on the plains 
bringing temperatures down to single digits. With downsloping off 
the Palmer Divide along with westerly downslope winds off the 
foothills this will allow for most regions on the plains to stay 
fog free. However...southern Weld will have light winds and 
combined with local topography cooler air will be able to pool in 
low lying areas bringing a small chance for some patchy fog 
formation early tomorrow morning. 


For Thursday upper level flow will turn more northwesterly 
bringing a drier and warmer flow to the region. Temperatures will 
rebound to just below seasonal normals. 


Long term...(thursday night through wednesday) 
issued at 109 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


On Thursday night...an upper level trough continues to dominate 
the central and eastern United States...with a large upper level 
ridge of high pressure along the West Coast. Colorado lies between 
these two systems under the influence of a dry northwest flow 
aloft. This pattern will bring dry conditions to north central and 
northeastern Colorado through the weekend...with the exception of 
a few High Mountain snow showers on Sunday. Temperatures over 
eastern Colorado will warm to above normal values on Friday as 
warm air advection combines with weak downslope flow. Cooler 
temperatures are expected east of the mountains over the 
weekend...in response to a couple of weak cool front moving across 
northeastern Colorado. 


Models begin to diverge by early next week. The European model (ecmwf) has a large 
upper level ridge building into the Rocky Mountain region...while 
the GFS has a more zonal flow. Either way it looks to be warm and 
dry....with high temperatures near 70 in Denver by Wednesday. 


&& 


Aviation...(for the tafs through 06z Thursday evening) 
issued at 905 PM MST Wednesday Mar 4 2015 


VFR conditions should prevail across Denver area airports tonight 
and Thursday. Kden and kapa should see drainage winds develop 
around 10-14 knots. The drainage winds should keep the threat of 
fog to the north and east of the Denver metropolitan area airports.

Bou watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
