SHORT TERM. (This evening through Thursday night) Issued at 231 PM MST Wed Dec 11 2019

Satellite imagery shows that much of yesterday's snowfall across Rawlins and Decatur counties has melted. Southeast winds have helped warm us up today with high temperatures reaching the 40s and 50s. A weak upper ridge will continue to move across the region this evening with a shortwave trough moving into eastern Colorado. Clouds are expected to increase heading into this evening as upper levels become saturated. Am not anticipating any precipitation with the trough moving in as low and mid-levels will remain dry.

Thursday, the trough will continue to progress east with northwest flow setting up over the region. Temperatures will once again reach the 50s for highs while lows will range from the mid- 20s to low 30s. Dry conditions will persist through Thursday night.

LONG TERM. (Friday through Wednesday) Issued at 222 PM MST Wed Dec 11 2019

Synopsis . Accumulating snow will be possible this weekend mainly Saturday morning through Sunday evening. While there is very low confidence in the potential amounts of snow, it would seem a few inches of snow is possible. Check future forecasts with better information for updates. With the snow will come cooler temperatures as lows drop into the teens starting Sunday night. Now strong winds are expected at this time, which is unusual for this kind of system. Quiet, sunny weather is expected across the Tri-State area Monday through Wednesday.

Discussion . Upper-level ridging is expected over the Tri-State area to begin the long term forecast period which means Friday will see mostly quiet weather with partly cloudy skies. However, a strong longwave upper-level trough developing over the eastern Pacific Ocean will progress eastward to the western United States by Saturday which will bring with it strong upper-level support for ascent and precipitation. Given the cooler temperatures that are also expected to arrive with this upper-level trough, snow will be the dominant precipitation type, but some rain will also occasionally mix in during the afternoon hours Saturday and Sunday when temperatures are at their greatest.

Long term model guidance from the GFS and the Euro has been all over the place when it comes to snow amounts, and as such there is very little confidence at all in what the higher snow totals could be. Most of the guidance from the last 24 hours suggests that the higher amounts of snow will generally be along and south of Interstate 70, but even that could change between now and Saturday/Sunday. Snow totals from the previous forecast package were on the order of 3 to 6 inches, but this forecast package only has snow totals on the order of 1 to 3 inches. The biggest source of the uncertainty in amounts comes from the strength and location of the upper-level trough. The 12Z GFS has a stronger trough allowing for more precipitation while the Euro has a weaker trough with lesser amounts. More will be known about this potential winter system as we get closer towards the end of this week.

There is good model agreement at this time that this trough will be quickly continuing to progress eastward, meaning that any precipitation chances should quickly diminish late Sunday. Monday through Wednesday of next week appear to be quiet weather days as the Central High Plains will be on the convergent side of the passing upper-level trough and a weak upper-level ridge builds over the Mountain West. This will allow temperatures to warm up slightly with afternoon highs returning back to the 40s by Wednesday.

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.
