SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday) Issued at 301 PM MST Tue Nov 24 2020
Satellite images this afternoon are showing the upper system low centered over the OK panhandle region, and precip over southern CO is winding down across the area. Early this evening there should still be some snow showers over the southeast mtns and portions of the far southern and southeast plains, before coming to an end later this evening as the upper level system moves further east of the area. Clouds will decrease and overnight temps will be cool, with lows mostly in the teens and lower 20s over the plains, with single digits and teens in the San Luis Valley and upper Arkansas River Valley, and mostly teens in Teller County. With the precip that the San Luis Valley got this afternoon, there will be the possibility of some low clouds and fog developing later tonight.
Dry weather and warmer temps can be expected on Wed. Highs should mostly be in the lower to mid 50s over the plains, with 40s in the high valleys and Teller County.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday night through Tuesday) Issued at 301 PM MST Tue Nov 24 2020
Wednesday night-Saturday . Latest models are coming into better agreement of a split flow pattern developing across the region, as a broad upper trough translates across the Intermountain West Wednesday night. The main part of this system then continues to translate across the Northern Rockies and into the Upper Midwest through Thanksgiving day, as secondary energy digs down the backside of the system across the Great Basin and cuts off an upper low across central Arizona by early Friday morning. While there remains some differences on the location of this upper low and the speed at which is lifts out across the southern Rockies through Saturday, the latest models tend to agree that any precipitation associated with these passing systems will be generally light and mainly confined to the higher terrain of the southern mountains and the southern tier along the New Mexico border. With that said, should see dry conditions through most of Thanksgiving Day, with increasing chances of snow showers across the higher terrain, especially along the ContDvd, late Thursday afternoon and evening. Showers to spread south across the area Thursday night into early Friday morning, before precipitation chances spread north and east across the area again Friday afternoon and night before diminishing from northwest to southeast on Saturday. Again, best chances of light accumulating snowfall will be across the higher terrain, especially across the southern mountains. As for temperatures, highs on Thanksgiving Day look to be around seasonal levels in the mid 40s to mid 50s across the plains, with a weak backdoor cold front pushing across the plains late Thursday afternoon leading to slightly cooler temperatures on Friday, with temperatures warming back to near seasonal for Saturday.
Saturday night-Tuesday . More northern stream energy progged to dig across the Northern Tier of States on Saturday, which is progged to carve out a broad upper trough across the Central Conus late Sunday night and Monday. This passing system looks to be too far east to bring any precipitation to the area, though will likely see breezy northerly winds and cooler temperatures across the area on Sunday as the system's associated cold front moves across region. Latest models indicting dry and warmer weather for Monday into Tuesday, as upper level ridging builds across the Rockies.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) Issued at 1054 PM MST Tue Nov 24 2020
At KALS, mainly LIFR through the night as layer of fog persists near the terminal, though some brief improvements in cigs/vis possible 08z-12z given very shallow fog depth as seen on area webcams. Fog lifts through the morning, with VFR conditions from midday into Wed evening.
At KCOS and KPUB, VFR the next 24 hrs, though will have to watch for some ground fog near KPUB toward 12z, as shallow fog layer may develop along the Arkansas River.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
