Short term (tonight through Wednesday night)
issued at 356 pm mst Tue dec 18 2018
apart from some impressive low stratus across northwest colorado
on GOES satellite this morning, it's been a relatively quiet
weather day ahead of the next approaching storm. Current
temperatures are trending 3 to 6 degrees warmer than this time
yesterday. Clouds have already and will continue to increase this
evening north of i-70 as the shortwave pacific trough drops into
the region from the northwest. While a few light returns can be
seen on radar this afternoon, not seeing any snow showers on
webcams just yet. This will change within the next few hours as
the atmosphere becomes more saturated with isolated orographic
showers developing over the northern and central colorado
mountains. Coverage will increase overnight and into Wednesday as
the trough digs into the continental divide. The winter weather
advisories issued earlier this morning are still on track with
favorable upslope snow showers producing generally 4 to 8 inches
of snow through Wednesday for the elkhead, park, gore and elk
mountain ranges, as well as for the flat tops. Additionally, the
arrival of a 130 to 140 knot jet aloft will result in gusty winds
at the surface. Blowing snow will be the primary impact with this
system, reducing visibilities during the morning and afternoon
commutes as gusts range from 30 to 50 mph in the advised area.

While showers will spread further south into the san juans amounts
will generally be less than 2 inches.

Showers will quickly taper off Wednesday night as a strong ridge
of high pressure builds to the west. Skies will become mostly
clear with overnight lows cooling by several degrees across the
north.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 356 pm mst Tue dec 18 2018
high pressure will slide over eastern utah and western colorado
for Thursday, allowing for temperatures to moderate and conditions
to remain dry. As we head into Friday and Saturday, however, the
models are already showing some pretty big discrepancies in how
they are handling the series of shortwaves set to move into the
region. The gfs, SREF and canadian are all putting better stock
into Friday afternoon's trough compared to the euro, which holds
off on any moisture moving into the area before Saturday
afternoon with the arrival of a much deeper trough. Model
solutions continue to diverge as we head into the new work week,
though both the GFS and euro do show a broad, elongated pacific
trough digging into the western CONUS early next week. The GFS is
much more progressive than the euro and pushes the trough right
through our forecast area on christmas day. The euro is slower
with the base of the trough not lifting through the region until
mid to late next week. Still plenty of time for things to change
over the coming days, but stay tuned on the potential for a white
christmas!

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 448 pm mst Tue dec 18 2018
moisture is slowly lowering as lift increases across western
colorado this evening. Snow is expected to spread across the
northern and central mountains overnight with significant terrain
obscuration from near i-70 northward to the wyoming border. Ils
cigs look to build in along the i70 tafs kril kege kase after
midnight withVFR possible by sunrise. Khdn will likely be earlier
that this withVFR expected by midnight. Snow will be mainly tied
to the terrain but winds will become in issue and several sites
could gust over 25 mph by mid to late morning on Wednesday.

Mountain wave and ridgetop turbulence is also likely.

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.
