Update
Issued at 622 pm mst Sun dec 16 2018
just completed an update. Temperatures in the eastern portion of
the area are already approaching the low temperature forecast.

Expect the winds to be light for a little while longer. So
adjusted the temperatures down in that area. Also based on latest
trends adjusted the winds and dewpoints through the rest of the
night.

Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 230 pm mst Sun dec 16 2018
upper ridge axis will move across the area tonight with a
southwest flow for Monday. Surface winds will increase from the
south on Monday and by breezy by the afternoon ahead of a surface
trough in colorado. Temperatures will respond and warm a few more
degrees compared to today, expecting some lower 60s in parts of
the area. Clouds will begin to increase from the southwest in the
afternoon ahead of a shortwave trough.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 230 pm mst Sun dec 16 2018
shortwave trough moves across Monday night and Tuesday with
clouds but no precipitation expected. Another trough will emerge
from the northern rockies Tuesday night and into the northern
plains by Wednesday. Fairly strong upper jet will push a cold
front through early in the day. Once mixing commences behind the
front expect windy very windy conditions to develop in northeast
colorado and first column or two of counties into kansas. If
trends continue may need a high wind watch for those areas on
Wednesday. It has been dry lately, so expect the wind to be
accompanied by areas of blowing dust. Temperatures will cool
slightly for Thursday as pacific air mass settles in, but still
above normal for this time of year. Upper ridge will rebuild for
Friday with dry conditions and warmer temperatures. The weekend
will see cooler temperatures behind another cold front, but only
dropping to near normal. Cant totally rule out precipitation with
a fast moving open wave coming out of the central rockies, but it
would be light if it happens at all. Wet bulb zero heights suggest
rain or a rain snow mix.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening)
issued at 440 pm mst Sun dec 16 2018
vfr conditions are expected through the period. For kgld, the
winds will start out from the south southeast at 6 knots then
shift to the south southwest at 03z as they increase to near 10
knots. Those winds will become south at 18z and increase to near
15 knots with gusts to near 22 knots. Those will last til near
sunset when the gusts stop and decrease to near 12 knots.

For kmck, light and variable winds will become southwest at 6
knots around 05z. Those winds will continue until 17z when they
shift to the south southeast at 8 knots.

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.
