SHORT TERM. (Today through Tuesday Night) Issued at 355 AM MDT Mon Oct 18 2021

At the start of the short term period, current RAP analysis shows the CWA underneath the back part of an upper air ridge with a low developing in northern CA in the base of a trough to the west. With this setup, the CWA has a southwesterly flow aloft. Model guidance shows the low making an eastward progress during the day and reaching over central UT by the evening hours. With this pattern aloft, a surface low looks to reside along the front range in CO causing mostly southerly winds at the surface that may gust up to around 25 mph in some portions during the afternoon. In addition to this, the CWA looks to stay dry particularly in the western portions. Minimum RH values look to drop as low as 14 percent in areas along and west of KS-27 which may bring about elevated to near critical fire weather conditions during the afternoon hours. While wind gusts in the upper limit of the forecast look to stay more in the southeastern quadrant of the CWA, the drier areas may not reach Red Flag Warning criteria with winds being the limiting factor. Daytime highs on Monday look to be in the middle 70s to lower 80s.

On Monday night, models show the upper air low moving over the CO/UT/WY border with the CWA retaining the southwesterly upper air flow through the night. The surface low looks to remain in CO allowing for the breezy southerly winds at the surface to continue through the night. Precipitation is not expected as well during the night time hours. Overnight lows on Monday night expect to be in the lower 40s to lower 50s range.

On Tuesday, model guidance depicts the upper air low moving east along the CO/WY border making it to western NE by the evening hours. This low then looks to start to move northwest going into NE and staying just north of the CWA overnight. At the surface, a cold front looks to move through the area during the day. Northern Yuma county may see a very slight chance for a light shower in the afternoon though precipitation chances look to stay more north of the CWA as the surface low moves into NE. Behind this front, the CWA may see some windy conditions at the surface as the winds turn more west-northwesterly through the day. Currently, wind gusts look to possibly reach up to or exceed 30 mph in portions of the Tri-State area. There are concerns for elevated to near-critical fire weather conditions in the western portions of the CWA with these winds particularly the southwestern quadrant as minimum RH values look to be in the upper teens. Breezy conditions look continue through the night with northwesterly winds around 15 to 20 mph. Daytime highs on Tuesday expect to range between the middle 60s in the northwestern portion of the CWA to the upper 70s in the western portions. While Tuesday's overnight lows look to range between the lower 30s to the lower 40s, the breezy conditions may keep the frost away except for possibly in lower and/or sheltered areas.

LONG TERM. (Thursday night through Monday) Issued at 202 PM MDT Mon Oct 18 2021

Dry conditions are expected through the extended forecast with several chances for frost. The forecast period begins with northwest flow aloft over the Tri-State area and a ridge over the western CONUS. Thursday night, temperatures fall into the mid to upper 30s for much of the area. Frost concerns remain limited to Eastern Colorado and areas north of the Kansas-Nebraska border.

Heading into Friday, the ridge begins to move eastward over the InterMountain West. Highs Friday afternoon will range from the mid to upper 60s across the region. Slightly warmer temperatures are expected Saturday afternoon as the ridge progresses through the region. Limited frost chances will be possible Saturday and Sunday mornings as lows are slightly warmer.

Sunday, an open wave moves into the region with winds increasing slightly from the south/southwest. Conditions are expected to remain dry at this time, with any precipitation chances occurring outside of the Goodland CWA. A few models did attempt to bring precipitation into the Tri-State area, but confidence is not high enough to include a precip mention at this time. Another ridge moves into the area on Monday with dry conditions and slightly warmer temperatures expected.
