SHORT TERM. (Today through Friday night) Issued at 336 AM MDT Thu Oct 28 2021

The main concern in the short term forecast is the potential for windy conditions today across the High Plains. The Tri-State area remains between a trough over western Kansas and Oklahoma and a ridge over the western CONUS. Northwest flow aloft will persist through the day over the region. Winds are expected to be gusty due to a tight pressure gradient over the region. Looking at the 300mb level, a jet streak with max winds of 110-130kts will continue to move over the region today. The main question today will be how strong will the winds be as they mix to the surface? Right now, forecasted winds are set for northwest sustained at 30 to 40 mph with gusts of 50 to 55 mph possible through this evening.

Near critical fire weather conditions will be possible through the afternoon fro areas mainly in Eastern Colorado as minimum relative humidity values fall into the low 20s. Any fire that sparks will have the potential to grow quickly due to forecasted winds.

Winds relax slightly overnight as the ridge over the west begins to move into the area. Counties along and west of Highway 27 have the best potential for receiving any frost this evening as temperatures fall into the 20s and 30s with clear skies and decreasing winds. These counties have already had their first freeze of the season. Frost issues to the east of Hwy 27 merit watching for this evening and into Friday morning. Overnight low temperatures are expected to fall into the 30s. Although winds are supposed to decrease through the evening and overnight hours, they are expected to remain around 10-15kts which may help with frost suppression. The key takeaway will be how far the ridge progresses into the area overnight as this will impact winds and frost implications.

Friday, the ridge moves over the region, flattening out slightly. Expect dry conditions and warmer temperatures with highs in the low 60s in the east and the mid-60s in the west. Friday night, clear skies, lighter winds and temperatures in the low to mid-30s will be conducive for frost development.

LONG TERM. (Sunday through Thursday) Issued at 130 PM MDT Thu Oct 28 2021

Cold and wet pattern will be in place during the long term period. Expecting much below normal temperatures, especially on Monday, with only a gradual warm up towards Thursday. Best chances for precipitation will be Sunday night through Monday, with occasional chances for light precipitation Tuesday and Wednesday, finally drying out towards Thursday.

Upper pattern will feature a slow moving upper low near Hudson Bay in Canada and weak ridging over the Great Basin. This will result in a prolonged period of northerly flow with a fetch well into Canada. As mentioned, colder air will arrive on Sunday and remain through Wednesday, with a slow return to more normal temperatures towards the end of the week as the upper low moves out and the western ridge begins to build across the Rockies.

Weak shortwaves rotating around the base of the upper low will bring occasional chances for light precipitation. First round will begin Sunday night and continue through Monday, mainly as snow, with highs on Monday in the 30s. At this time, appears to be a light snow event, though the first of the season, with some question how much melting will occur due to antecedent warm ground and pavement temperatures. Forecast snow amounts currently fairly close to ECMWF guidance with up to 1 inch possible, highest in southwest Nebraska, with most locations probably less than an inch. Beyond Monday, any additional precipitation appears very light and in the form of rain or snow with daytime temperatures in the 40s and nighttime temperatures in the 20s.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon) Issued at 1129 AM MDT Thu Oct 28 2021

VFR conditions are expected through the 18Z TAF period at MCK and GLD.

Strong, gusty, northwest winds are expected to continue through this afternoon and early evening with peak gusts near 45kts. After 00Z, speeds will decrease with further decrease in speed and gustiness after 01Z to continue overnight. After 12Z Friday morning, winds should be light out of the west northwest.
