Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 315 pm mst Sat feb 23 2019
upper low is pulling east of the area with snow and wind having
decreased across the plains. A few more hours of northerly winds
gusting to around 30 mph will be possible across the plains into the
early evening before the surface pressure gradient relaxes, but
winds should decouple as the night GOES on. Main challenge will be
whether fog will form over the fresh snowpack in the san luis
valley. Winds in model soundings suggest potential is there, though
some invading high clouds from the west could put this in jeopardy.

Sunday will be dry and warmer with less wind. -kt

Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 315 pm mst Sat feb 23 2019
Sunday night through Wednesday... Westerly flow aloft is expected
through mid-week, with slight upper-level ridging. This will
allow for tranquil and dry conditions to persist through the first
half of the week. Highs along the i-25 corridor are expected to
warm into the mid 50s to near 60 Monday and Tuesday, while snow
cover and a back door cold front moving into far eastern co will
keep temperatures there slightly cooler with highs reaching the
mid to upper 40s. A surface high pressure system then moves into
the high plains on Wednesday, bringing a cool, canadian airmass
along with it. The effects will mainly be felt from the i-25
corridor and eastward, where temperatures will be cooler than
Monday and Tuesday. Afternoon highs on Wednesday are expected to
be in the low to mid 50s along i-25, and upper 30s to mid 40s in
the eastern co plains. The san luis valley will see temperatures
topping out in the 30s and 40s, with a gradual warming trend
through Wednesday, while the mountains will see highs in the 20s.

Wednesday night through Saturday... There is less confidence with the
remaining forecast period. Models are showing some pacific moisture
moving across the great basin and into the colorado, bringing snow
chances to the continental divide beginning late Wednesday early Thursday.

However, the GFS shows the bulk of the moisture arriving sooner
and has a more southerly track than the ecmwf. Both models are
currently showing that the snow will be mainly confined to the
continental divide, but the GFS is hinting at the possibility of
precipitation spilling over to the palmer divide and eastern
plains on Friday. Temperatures warm back up into the upper 50s
and low 60s Thursday into Friday across the plains.

vfr conditions expected at the terminals over the next 24 hours.

There is a small potential that patchy fog may develop over kals
towards morning. Will include this in the TAF for a brief period
towards 12z. Conditions may briefly drop ifr or lower if the fog
does develop. -kt

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.
