SHORT TERM. (Today through Tuesday night) Issued at 319 AM MST Mon Nov 30 2020

Latest upper air analysis shows a trough moving onto the West Coast with a short wave ridge over the Rockies and a long wave trough over Mississippi River Valley. At the surface a high pressure was moving south through the Central Plains. Satellite imagery showed cloud cover moving onshore with the trough and a large expanse of cloud cover accompanying the long wave trough over the eastern CONUS.

Today temperatures will warm as WAA continues with the southwest winds over the forecast area. This will allow temperatures to be warmer than yesterday. The low dew points will gradually increase some as well with the WAA. The lowest dew points will be over the northwest part of the forecast area. This will cause relative humidity values to fall to around 12%. However winds will be fairly light where the relative humidity values are lowest so am not anticipating a need for a fire weather product at this time. The westerly winds will be breezy during the afternoon, however these winds will only last for an hour or two over the southern half of the forecast area in the early afternoon before shifting east.

Tonight westerly winds will turn to the northwest toward sunrise as the next cold front moves through Tuesday morning. Lows will be around 20 degrees. However dew points will fall into the single digits tonight, and the environment will be very favorable for radiational cooling. Current forecast is on the cooler side of the data, however am concerned that the lows may not be cool enough. As with last night, the complicating factor is how much of a warming influence will the west winds be.

Tuesday the next cold front will move through the forecast area in the morning. Due to the dry environment in place there will be very little cloud cover accompanying the front through. Tuesday looks to be very similar to Sunday. Wind gusts for the afternoon may need to be a bit higher due to higher winds being present in the mixed layer. Due to the CAA, highs will be cooler than today. An upper level trough does deepen to the southwest of the forecast area. However the lift with this trough will be to the southwest of the forecast area, and soundings do not look too supportive of precipitation. In addition the upper level flow looks very similar to a split flow pattern which is a dry pattern for the forecast area. Therefore have kept the forecast dry.

Tuesday night winds will decline. Current forecast may have the winds declining too quickly during the evening given the models still have a mixed layer in place allowing stronger winds to the surface. Lows will be similar to tonight.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Sunday) Issued at 319 AM MST Mon Nov 30 2020

At the beginning of the long term period, models develop an upper level low across the Rockies into TX panhandle region. Models having some differences on how far south the upper level low develops and how fast it moves out. Models have it moving into the OH valley by Friday. An upper level low develops across the SW Conus and an upper level ridge develops across NW Conus into Saturday.

At the surface, a surface low is east of the Tri-State region by Wednesday morning with a cold front southeast of the region. Another cold front develops northeast of the region by Sunday morning. Expect to see chances of precipitation at the beginning of the extended forecast. Elected to increase precipitation chances on Wednesday which blended with our surrounding offices. Precipitation will be light if it occurs. Due to track and speed differences, confidence is not that high at this time. As system moves out dry conditions prevail for the remainder of the extended forecast at this time.

High Temperatures across the Tri-State Region are expected to be in the lower to middle 30s on Wednesday and gradually warming up to the lower to middle 50s by Saturday. Overnight low temperatures will range from mainly 10 to 20 degrees on Wednesday night increasing to the lower 20s by Saturday. The remainder of the long term period should see lows in the lower to middle 20s.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning) Issued at 417 AM MST Mon Nov 30 2020

VFR conditions forecast for the TAFs. Light to breezy westerly winds will persist through the majority of the TAF. The strongest winds will occur around 18z. Westerly winds will turn to the northwest around 12z ahead of the next cold front that will move through.

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.
