Short term (today through Wednesday)
issued at 324 am mdt Tue mar 26 2019
cirrus cast off by a closed mid-level low circulation off the
coast of the pacific northwest was moving through the ridge of
high pressure over the region early this morning. Extrapolated
movement derived from satellite imagery indicated that much of the
high level cloud cover will be east of the continental divide by
sunrise.

However, IR satellite imagery showed more cirrus upstream which
models indicated will move over eastern utah later this morning
overspreading western colorado during the afternoon as the high
pressure ridge shifts east of the forecast area. Expect cirrus
will be thin resulting in filtered sunshine across the area
today. Solar insolation combined with weak warm air advection in
southwest flow should help temperatures reach their highest levels
so far this year. Except for potential isolated thunderstorm
activity along the southernmost portion of the continental divide
in the southern san juan mountains late this afternoon and early
this evening, dry weather will continue across the area.

Instability combined with a weak surge of moisture and a minor
mid-level shortwave trough appears to be what models were keying
on in the south.

Though cirrus will linger over the region later tonight,
precipitation chances will diminish as the atmosphere stabilizes.

Dry weather will carry over into Wednesday, though models depict
an increase in mid-level moisture across the central and southern
portions of the forecast area which suggests increased clouds
during the day. Despite increased mid-level moisture, models were
consistent in forecasting continued dry weather and warmer than
normal temperatures.

Long term (Wednesday night through Monday)
issued at 324 am mdt Tue mar 26 2019
pieces of energy will continue to eject from the low pressure off
the pacnw coast Wednesday evening but will only affect areas to
our west. The only thing we'll see will be some high clouds but
those will have been overhead for much of the day. By Thursday
morning, the first shortwave will be just on our doorstep and
looks to bring some light showers over the uintahs but as it
reaches the co ut border, models push the strongest upper level
support into wyoming and the precip follows suit. Another push of
energy approaches from the northwest Thursday evening into
Thursday night and with temperatures cooler behind the push, this
looks to be a standup cold front with frontogenetical forcing
being the main culprit for precipitation. By Friday morning, areas
north of i-70 will see showery precip from eastern utah to the co
continental divide with snow at the higher elevations.

As this occurs, the low to our west opens up and loses much of its
characteristics. The jet stream will still be moving overhead and
will continue to do so for the remainder of the long term and with
this upper level support, unsettled weather looks to remain in
place. Saturday may be a down day but spotty showers will continue
across the area again with favored areas north of i-70. By Saturday
evening the GFS hints at another area of low pressure forming
over the CWA and dropping southward bringing precip to the san
juans. The european has more of a trough moving through without
much precip. Plenty of time to sort this out as we get closer to
the weekend.

Temperatures will be noticeably cooler Friday and into the weekend
as the cold front moves through and drops temperatures anywhere
from 10 to 15 degrees from what we saw midweek.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1117 pm mdt Mon mar 25 2019
some high clouds are spilling over a ridge of high pressure to the
west. These clouds are few to scattered and are at, or above, 20k
feet so aviation concerns noted. Conditions will continue this way
through tomorrow though some broken skies may make an appearance,
especially up north.

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.
