SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday night) Issued at 229 PM MST Sun Dec 15 2019
Forecast focus is on the near term portion of the short term from tonight through mid-day Monday as the remainder of the upper trough moves over the Rockies and High Plains.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy as the main upper trough axis moves across the region. The short wave troughs circulating through the base of the main upper trough take a more southerly route from southeast Colorado and northeast New Mexico across southern KS and the Panhandle region tonight into Monday. The surface front remains well south of the region with a low tracking across the southern plains and colder high pressure remaining generally in place across the forecast area. An area flurries and light snow may extend from central Colorado into KS this evening, but should continue to push south overnight with little to no snowfall accumulation expected across the GLD forecast area.
Dry conditions are expected from mid-day Monday and beyond. High temperatures remain in the 30s through Monday and warm into the 40s and 50s through Tuesday and Wednesday as the upper ridge moves in to replace the trough and the southwest near surface flow pushes the cold air out of the region. Overnight lows in the teens will be back up into the 20s by Wednesday night.
LONG TERM. (Thursday through Sunday) Issued at 115 PM MST Sun Dec 15 2019
Long term period remains quiet with no impactful weather expected. Upper trough/cut off low will move through Thursday night and Friday, and although the GFS and ECMWF differ on the details neither model is producing precipitation. GFS solution still shows a period of gusty northwest winds possible on the backside Thursday night/Friday morning, though confidence is low. Afterwards, a large ridge will build across the southern and central CONUS, dominating the pattern through the weekend with continued dry conditions and above normal temperatures.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon) Issued at 1035 AM MST Sun Dec 15 2019
VFR conditions have moved into GLD and are expected to stay through the remainder of the 18Z TAF period. There is a possibility of lower clouds and reduced visibility between 09-15Z Monday morning, but confidence in this is low and only have a scattered lower cloud layer remaining through that time.
MCK will start out MVFR due to a lower ceiling that is expected to remain through the afternoon and dissipate by 03Z this evening. There is a possibility of lower clouds returning between 10-15Z Monday morning, but confidence is low and have only kept a scattered low cloud layer in there during that time.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
