Short term (today through Saturday night)
issued at 345 am mdt Thu may 25 2017
today-tonight... Latest 00z models have changed their tune a bit
regarding timing of showers thunderstorms today which has also
impacted various other parameters including temperature, dewpoint
and wind.

Latest thinking is for a weather disturbance (currently over
northern nevada and utah) to move off the colorado front range and
into the northwest half of the forecast area by mid afternoon
spreading east late in the day. Area remains under left front quad
of 90kt upper jet with great upper divergence. Strong to severe
thunderstorms are possible with large hail and damaging winds the
primary threats. Precipitation looks to linger through the evening
and perhaps midnight before lifting northeast and out of the area.

850mb temperatures warm about 8f to 13f across the area supporting
highs in the upper 70s (north) to near 90 (south), this matches
pretty well with latest 2m temperatures and bias corrected grids so
have raised highs as a result. Low temperatures in the upper 40s to
mid 50s.

Friday-Friday night... Another weather disturbance moves off the
colorado front range and into the area from the west-northwest by
mid to late afternoon continuing east through the evening and
overnight hours. Once again great upper jet divergence with this
feature and it may suggest storms transitioning into an mcs.

Afternoon temperatures look to warm into the low to upper 70s
(northwest to southeast) with lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Saturday-Saturday night... Upper trough axis finally forecast to move
across the area during the day slowly moving east of the area during
the night. Will have a continued threat for showers and
thunderstorms through midnight before drier air aloft moves in from
the north. High temperatures will be much cooler with low 60s
(northwest) to low 70s (far east and south). Low temperatures in the
mid 40s to around 50.

Long term (Sunday through Wednesday)
issued at 153 am mdt Thu may 25 2017
there are chances for rain showers and storms over the tri-state
region during the second half of the extended period. Sunday and
Monday, for the most part, will be a lull period as dry air will
take over the region.

Northwest upper level flow will continue to dominate over the
central high plains through the period. So Tuesday and Wednesday
will have chances for precipitation due to shortwave troughs moving
over the region both days and frontal boundaries positioned near
the cwa. Instability and shear will be present as well, which
indicates that some severe storms may develop. With these days being
at the end of the period, it is hard to determine the exact impacts
and timing. Model guidance is showing similar ideas for these days
so the likelihood that precipitation will occur is higher at this
time. Will continue to monitor as the middle of next week
approaches.

Temperatures during the period will stay consistent and hover in the
70s.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon)
issued at 1207 pm mdt Thu may 25 2017
vfr conditions forecast for the tafs. Main focus will be the
timing of the storms this afternoon and this evening. Currently
looks like there will be two rounds of storms. The first round
will be isolated and likely form off the developing dry line over
east central colorado. Not far behind that initial development
will be the main round of storms that will be in a cluster as they
move east across the forecast area. Large hail and damaging winds
will be the threats with these storms. The activity will be east,
or should be east of the TAF sites by 3z or so.

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.
