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.
