SHORT TERM. (Today through Monday night) Issued at 330 AM MDT Sat Jun 12 2021

Today-tonight . an upper level ridge axis centered over southwest Texas this morning remains nearly stationary through tonight. The latest 00z and 06z guidance is suggesting scattered clouds in the 850-700mb layer will move into the area from the southeast today as surface winds increase into the 10 to 20 mph range with higher gusts. Despite NAM forecasts of up to 3000 J/KG of CAPE it also has 40 J/KG of CIN so for now no precipitation is expected. Relative humidity in the 850-700mb layer increases tonight from southwest to northeast as some kind of weather disturbance in the 700mb height fields moves in. Its possible for some elevated thunderstorms to form close to sunrise Sunday morning from Oakley and Gove south. High temperatures are expected to be in the low to upper 80s. Low temperatures are expected to be in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Sunday-Sunday night . the above mentioned weather disturbance and batch of 850-700mb moisture dissipates some in the morning but there is enough moisture to increase cloud cover a bit compared to previous forecast. A slight chance for showers/thunderstorms exists in the morning from Wichita county to Oakley and Gove south. Lots of instability to work with but right now just not much in the way of forcing for better chances of afternoon convection. For the overnight hours the NAM and to a lesser extent the GFS bring a weather disturbance and support for a few showers and thunderstorms through the area from northwest to southeast. High temperatures are expected to reach the upper 80s to low 90s. Low temperatures are expected to fall into the low to mid 60s.

Monday-Monday night . a 597 dam upper high is forecast to reside in the vicinity of the four corners region. The GFS brings a weather disturbance into the northeast corner of the forecast area from the north after midnight supporting a slight chance of thunderstorms. The NAM/ECMWF/SREF are dry with little if any moisture in the 700- 500mb column. High temperatures look to reach the low to mid 90s with low temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Heat index values are expected to be in the upper 80s to around 95 degrees, highest from Benkelman to Gove east.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Friday) Issued at 330 AM MDT Sat Jun 12 2021

Tuesday . the upper level high remains parked near the four corners area while strengthening a bit to around 599 dam. Blending GFS/ECMWF/Canadian 850mb temperatures supports high temperatures in the low to mid 90s. Low temperatures are again expected to be in the low to mid 60s. Heat index values are expected to be in the upper 80s to near 95 degrees, highest in the Republican river valley in extreme southwest Nebraska and around Hill City.

Wednesday . the upper level high pressure area remains firm across the four corners area keeping any potential cold fronts well north of the area. 850mb temperatures from the GFS/ECMWF/Canadian models support high temperatures in the mid 90s to 100 degrees with heat index values in the low to upper 90s. A general lack of moisture in the 850-500mb layer supports a dry forecast. Low temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 60s.

Thursday . another hot day is expected with 850mb temperatures a degree or two warmer Celsius and high temperatures in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees. Heat index values again in the low to upper 90s. The forecast is calling for a slight chance of thunderstorms during the night. There is a bit of moisture in the 700-500mb layer and possibly a cold frontal passage. So for now will keep the slight chance pops going. Low temperatures are forecast to be in the low to upper 60s.

Friday . right now some cooler air is expected behind Thursday nights forecast frontal passage. GFS/ECMWF 850mb temperatures drop into the lower to upper 20C range supporting high temperatures in the low 80s to low 90s. Low temperatures look to be in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Both the GFS and ECMWF have some moisture in the 700- 500mb layer moving off the Colorado front range and into the area Friday night supporting a small chance for thunderstorms.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning) Issued at 330 AM MDT Sat Jun 12 2021

VFR conditions are currently expected at KGLD and KMCK through the period. Winds at KGLD begin the period light and variable but become southeasterly around 13kts with perhaps some gusts to 20kts from 15z-00z. After 01z southeast winds around 10kts expected. For KMCK light and variable winds at taf issuance become east- southeast 10kts or less.

Will have to watch for the possibility of sub VFR cigs after midnight at KGLD and possibly closer to 12z Sunday for KMCK if the NAM is correct. The GFS would suggest sub VFR cigs at KGLD in the 09z-12z timeframe. Right now confidence is too low to include in the forecast at this time.
