Update
Issued at 1040 am mdt Tue oct 16 2018
satellite pictures are showing no clouds over the CWA at this
time. Over the plains, the only decent snow field left is over
northern weld county. Another dry day and dry night are expected
for the forecast area.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 347 am mdt Tue oct 16 2018
the forecast area will remain in a col between the northern branch
of energy across the northern u.S. And a cutoff low in the desert
southwest through tonight. This will keep dry conditions in place
and allow for further moderation in temperatures. There is a
pretty healthy mid level cloud deck pushing south across the
northern high plains and has moved into northeast wyoming. Some of
these clouds are expected to make it into northeast colorado, but
overall expect mostly sunny skies to prevail through the day.

High temperatures should push into the mid to upper 50s over most
of the plains this afternoon, with mostly 40s in the mountains.

For tonight, a few mid level clouds are expected to bank up
against the front range, but dry conditions will persist. The
upper low in the desert southwest could push up just enough
moisture for a light shower in the park county area toward
daybreak.

Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
issued at 347 am mdt Tue oct 16 2018
most of northern colorado will remain under the influence of weak
upper level ridging in the first half of the forecast period as
the upper low over arizona this morning gradually shears apart and
dissipates over the four corners region as the week comes to an
end. Precipitation associated with this feature is forecast to
remain over southwestern colorado, under the northeast quadrant of
the upper circulation area. Northeast colorado will be left under
the subsident deformation region on the fringe of the upper
circulation. Park county and the southern parts of the central
mountain zone could see a few snow showers on Wednesday and
Thursday, but as the upper low loses its identity, the dry weather
from the plains will expand to cover all of the forecast area.

Precipitation amounts over park and summit counties are expected
to be light.

As the weather across the plains remains dry through the forecast
period, temperatures aloft will be gradually warming, resulting in
afternoon highs getting warmer with each passing day. Afternoon
highs are expected to be well into the 60s by Saturday and Sunday.

Mountain areas will be cooler, but the high valleys and parks
should still see readings in the 50s over the weekend. Skies will
have some cloudiness Wednesday and Thursday as high level moisture
comes out of the approaching upper low. From Friday through early
next week, skies across the forecast area should be nearly cloud
free.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon)
issued at 1040 am mdt Tue oct 16 2018
models are doing a decent job with the weak winds expected for dia
over the next day. Normal diurnal trends will be the rule. There
will be northerly and northeasterly winds this afternoon and
south-southwesterly winds overnight. There will be no ceiling
issues.

Bou watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
