SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 354 AM MST Sun Dec 15 2019
Upper level jet will be sitting over southern CO today and later in the day and overnight, an upper disturbance will move across southern CO. Precip is already starting to increase over the southern mtns and spreading out over the southern plains. Low and mid level upslope flow develops this afternoon with precip chances increasing over the central mtns, Fremont, Teller and El Paso County. The upslope flow will also lead to high chances for precip and accumulating snow over the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains and the southern I-25 corridor.
The upslope flow is expected to continue through midnight or a little later, with widespread snow expected over the mtns and I-25 corridor and portions of the San Luis Valley. Some snow will also be seen over the far southeast plains, but accumulation still don't look like they will be all that significant.
The areas that should be hardest hit by this storm system include the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains, and the I-25 corridor south of Pueblo. The latest forecast model runs show more significant snow accumulations over western Las Animas County than previous runs had shown, and this is due to stronger upslope flow or longer duration. Thus, will upgrade the Advisory for western Las Animas County to a Warning. Otherwise, the winter weather highlights that are in effect seem reasonable and will not make any other changes.
Late tonight the upper disturbance will move over far eastern CO and the precip will be decreasing from west to east. Thus, the Continental DVD will see snow decrease or end by late night, but the southeast plains should still see high chances for snow thru the night.
LONG TERM. (Monday through Saturday) Issued at 354 AM MST Sun Dec 15 2019
Pretty decent agreement between the operational models with regards to the evolution of the upper pattern. Ensemble spreads become increasingly high beyond Friday, however, they do indicate an upper ridge moving across the region.
Monday . the main upper level trough will be exiting the region to the southeast early in the day, while a secondary quick moving shortwave drops across Colorado through the afternoon. Expect ongoing snow showers across the region Monday morning, clearing to the south and east by mid day. Expect another round of afternoon snow showers, mainly over the Mountains and Palmer Divide during the afternoon and evening, before dissipating by midnight. Additional snow accumulations will remain confined to the Mountain areas withe around 2 inches possible. Lower elevations, mainly over the southern I-25 corridor may see spotty inch accumulations. All snow shower activity will come to an end during the evening hours, with dry conditions prevailing into Tuesday. Cold northerly winds and cloud cover will keep afternoon highs on the cooler side with lower to mid 30s across the region.
Tuesday and Wednesday . high pressure is forecast to move across Colorado through Wednesday. Dry conditions are expected to prevail during this period. Temperatures look to remain cool, with lower 40s on Tuesday, and upper 40s on Wednesday.
Thursday . a quick moving upper disturbance is forecast to move across the state on Thursday. The 00z model solutions were dry across the area, and a quick look at the 06z GFS does spit out a few snow showers over the Central Mountains on Thursday afternoon. Based on the 00z solution, kept the area dry as the trough passes overhead, but a few light snow showers are possible, mainly over the Central Mountains Thursday afternoon and evening.
Friday through Sunday . operational models, with ensemble support, indicate high pressure moving across the Rockies for late in the work week and next weekend. Continued dry conditions are expected. Temperatures will also be warming, with upper 40s on Friday, and mid 50s by Sunday. Mozley

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
