SHORT TERM. (This evening through Monday) Issued at 230 PM MDT Fri May 29 2020
Tonight-Saturday night . a nearly stalled frontal boundary will drift east toward the eastern portion of the forecast area overnight. Ahead of it some low clouds are possible where low level moisture is pooled. A few showers are also possible from around Trenton and McCook south into the Atwood area. Otherwise just a few mid and/or high clouds moving through from the northwest. Low temperatures are expected to be above normal in the low 50s to around 60. On Saturday a warm front lifts toward a Yuma to St. Francis to Hill City/Norton line by the end of the day. South of the front high temperatures are expected to be in the 90 to 95 degree range with mid to upper 80s north of the front. There will be a slight chance to low chance for late afternoon showers/thunderstorms across parts of Cheyenne and Kit Carson counties of Colorado within an 850mb theta-e axis where low level convergence is maximized.
Areal coverage of precipitation increases a bit Saturday evening across Kit Carson and Cheyenne counties of CO in the 850mb theta-e axis where convergence is maximized then decreasing around midnight with dry conditions across the entire area after midnight. Low temperatures are expected to be in the mid 50s to low 60s.
Sunday . the warm front lifts northeast into central Nebraska by the end of the day with high temperatures expected to be in the upper 80s to mid 90s. Isolated thunderstorms are possible along and west of the CO/KS border in the afternoon and evening. Low temperatures remain mild for early June with upper 50s to mid 60s expected.
Monday . currently looking dry. Will have to watch the northern and northwestern parts of the area late in the afternoon for a chance of thunderstorms where some low level convergence along a wind shift line is possible and mid level moisture moves in from the Palmer Divide area. High temperatures are expected to reach the low to upper 90s.
LONG TERM. (Monday night through Friday) Issued at 200 PM MDT Fri May 29 2020
Large upper ridge will be in control through Thursday. Temperatures will be much above normal with only slim chances for an afternoon or evening thunderstorm migrating off the Front Range. Relative humidity will fall to less than 20 percent Tuesday afternoon, although winds and fuel will be marginal for critical fire weather conditions. By Friday, the ridge axis will move east and will be under more of a southwest flow aloft. That should result in better thunderstorm chances from any weak disturbance riding up the ridge axis. Instability will be strongest in Kansas and Nebraska, up to 2000 j/kg currently forecast, although deep layer shear remains rather weak. Difficult to make any definitive statement on threat of severe weather 7 days out, but there will be at least a marginal risk should thunderstorms develop.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 516 PM MDT Fri May 29 2020
VFR conditions are expected at both the GLD and MCK terminals through the TAF period. There could be some low level wind shear around or after 06Z tonight potentially through the early morning hours at both TAF sites.
GLD WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. KS . NONE. CO . NONE. NE . NONE.

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.
