Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 419 am mst Tue jan 16 2018
still some lingering low clouds over the eastern mountains early
this morning, and a band of stratus has also pushed north out of nm
into the eastern half of the san luis valley. Overall, expect clouds
along east of the mountains to continue to slowly decrease through
the morning, while stratus may be slow to clear out of the san luis
valley as weak boundary layer winds and strong inversion limit
mixing. Despite increased Sun over the area today, cold air will
remain in place at most locations, with eastern plains staying well
below freezing another day. Overnight, lee trough begins to slowly
deepen as surface high pressure shifts eastward through the southern
plains. While min temps will still be below average, readings in
most areas will stay several degf warmer than 24 hrs earlier,
especially in the lee of the eastern mountains where weak downslope
winds will begin to stir.

Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
issued at 419 am mst Tue jan 16 2018
primary longer term meteorological issues appear to be amount of
impact system will provide the forecast district this weekend as
well as increased wind elevated fire weather potential by Friday.

Latest forecast model soundings, longer term computer
simulations and PV precipitable water analysis indicate that
varying degrees of upper ridging will allow dry and warmer
meteorological conditions to prevail over the forecast district
from Wednesday into Friday. In addition, increasing winds will
allow for localized elevated fire weather concerns at times
Friday(primarily over eastern sections).

Then, unsettled, cooler and gusty wind conditions are anticipated
over the majority of the forecast district by the weekend as next
system moves across the region.

At this time, the highest potential for gusty winds during the
longer term should be experienced from Friday into at least the
weekend, while the highest potential for more widespread
precipitation is projected from Saturday into Sunday.

Finally, warmest temperatures during the longer term should be
realized Thursday and Friday(where maximum temperatures reaching
well into the 60s should be noted over many eastern locations), while
coolest conditions should occur Sunday and Monday.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon)
issued at 1022 am mst Tue jan 16 2018
low clouds over the san luis valley (kals) will continue to
dissipate and should clear by early to mid afternoon. After that,
vfr conditions along with light winds should continue through the
remainder of the TAF fcst. One caveat; remnant low level moisture
is in the valley and some fog cannot be ruled out late tonight.

Will continue to monitor hires guidance for potential inclusion of
fog in kals TAF later tonight.

Vfr conditions with light diurnal wind flow will are anticipated
at kcos and kpub for the next 24 hours.

Pub watches warnings advisories
None.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
