Update
Issued at 943 pm mst Sun dec 10 2017
only minor updates at this hour. A few high clouds moving over at
the tail end of the shortwave crossing the northern plains. It
also looks like the colder spots will be a little colder than
forecast, and areas with drainage winds along the foothills possibly
a little warmer.

Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 317 pm mst Sun dec 10 2017
mostly clear skies and a dry atmosphere will lead to redevelopment
of strong inversions in low lying areas again tonight. Have
refined the low temps to adjust favored valley locations colder
tonight. Meanwhile, it will remain quite mild along the front
range with light drainage winds.

For Monday, a cold front will bring slight cooling to the plains,
with temperatures a few degrees cooler than those observed today.

However, winds will increase over the northern border and eastern
plains with high fire danger... See fire weather section below.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 317 pm mst Sun dec 10 2017
models continue to show a mild and dry week ahead for colorado.

The strong western u.S. Ridge is forecast to hold its position to
the west of us all week long. By the end of the week the ridge
axis will retrograde from a position over nevada and idaho to a
position over the west coast. This will bring colorado under
stronger northwesterly flow from Wednesday night through Thursday.

The ECMWF shows an initial surge of moisture making its way over
the ridge and into colorado by Thursday morning, but the GFS is
much drier. Will favor the dry GFS solution which doesn't bring
precipitation to colorado until next Saturday, when the upper
ridge is forecast to give way to a more significant trough that
comes ashore over the pacific northwest. The ECMWF also shows the
passage of a trough next weekend, so the forecast will favor that
solution and mention the chance of snow in the mountains next
Saturday. Until then, surface pressure gradients will be weak
after Monday afternoon, and flow aloft will also be weak under the
anomalously high heights that will dominate the weather pattern.

Temperatures on the plains will be about 10 to 15 degrees warmer
than normal through the week. Conditions in the mountains will
also be mild for december, but not as warm as on the plains.

Mostly clear skies during the overnight hours will allow
temperatures to drop to around seasonal values.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 943 pm mst Sun dec 10 2017
vfr through Monday. Some uncertainty about winds at kden kapa in
the afternoon. Most likely light southeast, but there is potential
for north winds gusting as high as 20 knots for a few hours.

Fire weather
Issued at 317 pm mst Sun dec 10 2017
winds will increase across the eastern northern plains behind a
frontal push early Monday morning. Strongest winds with gusts to
30-40 mph will occur along the wyoming border and over the eastern
plains where gradient and winds aloft are strongest. Humidities
bump up just a bit tomorrow with slight cooling and moistening.

However, the stronger winds will be sufficient to produce critical
grassland fire danger so issued a red flag warning for locations
with the strongest winds.

Bou watches warnings advisories
Red flag warning from 11 am to 5 pm mst Monday for coz238-242-

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
