NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 
1041 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

issued at 1041 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

Fog is slowly lifting but conditions have improved enough to allow 
expiration of dense fog advisory on the eastern plains. Next 
concern surrounds convection. 

There are already a few showers developing above the stable 
boundary layer and these will continue through the noon hour. By 
early afternoon...surface based convection will become widespread 
over the mountains and foothills where due to stronger daytime 
heating where more sunshine has occurred this morning. These 
showers and storms are expected to push northeast across the 
plains later in the afternoon and evening as upper level 
divergence increases in left exit region of the jet rounding the 
base of the Desert Southwest cutoff low. The idea of high probability of precipitation for 
this period looks good. Any severe threat is limited by the lack 
of sufficient heating and destabilization on the plains. 
However...stronger storms will still produce brief heavy rain and 
small hail. Main forecast changes were to delay clearing of the 
stratus on the plains and slightly cooler temperatures. 

Update issued at 707 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

Widespread fog had developed on the plains and web cams/metars 
show sufficient coverage of 1/4 mile visibility for a dense fog 
advisory. There is not much cloud cover above the stratus deck and 
its fairly thin so visibilities will improve between 9 and 10 am. 


Short term...(today through tonight ) 
issued at 400 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

A moist southwesterly flow aloft will stream over the region 
through tonight...ahead of an upper level low pressure system 
currently over Southern California. This system is expected to 
track slowly eastward...moving into west central Arizona by 00z Wednesday 
then into east central Arizona by 12z Wednesday morning. Over Colorado a moist 
diffluent flow aloft will be impacting the region... especially 
this afternoon and evening. The forecast soundings from the nam12/GFS buffer 
data indicate 300-500 j/kg of cape this afternoon. In addition...there 
is an 80 knots jet rounding the trough today and it expected to nose 
its way into southern Colorado. As a result the combination of some jet 
dynamics aloft coupled with the instability should produce a good 
support of widespread showers along with some embedded thunderstorms. 
It should be too warm for snow showers in the high country 
today...but cool enough tonight for some light snowfall above 12k 
feet...so will keep the mention of 1 to 3 inches in the grids. The 
hrrr/RUC start to develop some showers from Denver east and south 
this morning...so will mention rainfall early. A surface low is 
prognosticated to form over southeastern Colorado this morning with the surface 
winds shifting from northeasterly to north-northwesterly later today. Light winds and 
lingering low level moisture early this morning has resulted in 
more fog from Denver east and northeast...so will add patchy coverage 
through 15z. It could be dense in spots with visibility less than one 
half mile. Plenty of cloud cover today as well will limit heating 
so have trimmed the probability of precipitation back by a couple of degrees. 

Long term...(wednesday through monday) 
issued at 400 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

The closed upper low over Southern California at the moment the will 
continue its lumbering southeasterly trek across Arizona during the day 
Wednesday. Then models show it making a sharp right turn into 
northern Mexico by early on Thursday. Due to the slow progression of 
this system...Wednesday will remain relatively cool and unsettled. 
Particularly during the morning hours due in part to the passage of 
a weak pertabation at mid-levels. For that reason will keep a chance 
of showers mainly in the mountains Wednesday morning and as drier air 
moves down from Wyoming during the afternoon...decrease precipitation 
chances from north to south. Cannot rule out a stray T-storm but 
limit instability due to lingering cloud cover should pretty much 
confine any thunder to marginally warmer southeastern sections of the County Warning Area. 
Clearing will continue overnight as the upper low continues to move 
away and with subsident side of the speed maxima passing over the 
area. Near average temperatures expected Wednesday and Wednesday 

On Thursday...strong upper level ridging over the West Coast causes 
flow aloft to veer more northwesterly over the Rocky Mountain region. 
This flow drives a weak cold front south out of Wyoming and across 
northeast Colorado during the day bringing with it another batch of 
clouds and cooler air. Mostly cloudy skies are expected on Thursday 
along with a slight chance of showers both mountains and plains. Post 
frontal northeasterly flow may concentrate most of this shower activity to 
the east slopes of the Front Range west and southwest of Denver. 
However precipitation amounts will be minimal. Temperatures on Thursday are 
forecast to be 4-6 degree f lower than the day before. See no reason to 
argue with that. 

Looking ahead to the period Friday-Sunday...the big upper ridge 
building out west is prognosticated to migrate east during the period... 
with its apex reaching Colorado this weekend. This will result dry 
conditions and above average temperatures areawide. On the 
plains...high temperatures are expected to Hoover around the 80 degree 
mark both days. 


Aviation...(for the tafs through 18z Wednesday morning) 
issued at 1041 am MDT Tuesday Oct 6 2015 

Visibility slowly improving and will continue to do so through 
18z-19z. Stratus breakout program showed a very slow erosion 
today...but with convective clouds developing quickly to our south 
and spreading north expect enough mixing for lower clouds to break 
up through the early afternoon hours. Showers and storms will form 
shortly thereafter and become more widespread through late 
afternoon and evening. Feel enough instability to our southwest to 
warrant tempo thunder for a few hours...highest probability 22z- 
04z. There is some fog threat again overnight as boundary layer 
moisture may now scour eastward.
