SHORT TERM. (Tonight through Tuesday evening) Issued at 1059 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019

Upper level ridging has built back in off the Rockies extending across the high plains with surface high pressure moving northeast of the CWA. Return flow out of the southwest will prevail across southwestern Kansas with leeside troughing developing over eastern Colorado. Light winds and mainly clear skies overnight will allow for strong radiational cooling giving way to morning low temperatures in the upper teens to low 20s north to south across the CWA. By mid morning, only a few clouds visible with southwest winds picking up to 15-20 mph due to the aforementioned leeside trough coupled with the eroding temperature inversion due to mixing to the surface. Afternoon high temperatures will rebound back around the 50 degree mark due to the downsloping nature of the low level wind flow.

After sunset, an inversion will set up near the surface allowing for strong radiational cooling under clear skies. Low temperatures overnight will again drop into the low 20s for much of the CWA. Warming and dry trend in store for the remainder of the work week with another disturbance expected later in the weekend for Sunday, but overall a quiet weather pattern for the short term and much of the long term forecast.

LONG TERM. (After midnight Tuesday night through Monday) Issued at 1144 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019

The aforementioned upper level ridge will be set in place through the beginning of the long term forecast into the first half of the weekend giving way to a warm and dry trend into Saturday. Afternoon high temperatures will mainly be in the 50s pushing near 60 on Friday with morning low temperatures mainly in the 20s nearing the 30 degree mark Saturday morning.

The ridge will break down as an upper level disturbance currently off the coast of the Pacific northwest will makes its way across the high plains later Saturday evening dropping a cold front through the CWA. Much of the heavier snowfall looks to be north of the I-70 corridor but models are showing at least a dusting as far south as the Hwy 50 and 400 corridors. The greatest snowfall looks to be again along I-70 around the inch mark, but again, being this far out and models not very consistent from run to run, confidence is low at this point how much will fall and exactly where. For now, minimal impacts look to occur with winds turning out of the north but not showing much in way of stronger gusts at this time. The main factor will be with temperatures showing highs on Sunday and into early next week only in the mid to upper 30s with 40s expected by Tuesday. Morning lows will be quite cold once again behind the aforementioned cold front mainly in the teens to low 20s.

Overall, the long term forecast looks to be fairly quiet with warmer and breezy at best through Saturday with the mentioned disturbance for the later half of the weekend. Longer term models indicate another warming and dry trend for next work week with climate predictions showing about average in terms of temperatures and below average for precipitation for the remainder of the month.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Wednesday morning) Issued at 433 AM CST Tue Dec 10 2019

VFR conditions will prevail for all sites during the entirety of the period. Light southwesterly winds with some mid clouds visible on IR across GCK, DDC, and LBL. Leeside troughing will develop early in the period over eastern Colorado pushing winds up to 12kts for all but HYS, which will be north of the stationary boundary remaining light with clear skies. High clouds will remain throughout the day before clearing out towards sunset after 23Z. Winds will become calm at this point due to radiational cooling under the aforementioned clear skies setting up an inversion near the surface through the end of the period.

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.
