Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Goodland KS 524 AM MDT Sun May 31 2020

SHORT TERM. (Today through Tuesday night) Issued at 344 AM MDT Sun May 31 2020

A warm front is currently draped across Northwestern Kansas, just to the south of the Kansas-Nebraska border with temperatures in the mid- 50s to low 60s north of the front and the low to mid 60s south of the front. A few sprinkles may be possible this morning as ongoing showers and storms in Eastern Colorado diminish as they move into the CWA.

A ridge will be in place over the center of the nation Sunday and the warm front lifting to the north into Central and Western Nebraska. Temperatures will feel very summer-like with highs topping out in the low to mid-90s. Relative humidity values will range from the upper teens to low 20s across a portion of Kit Carson and Cheyenne counties in Colorado. Mixing this afternoon could bring winds into the mid to upper teens with gusts into the 25 to 30kt range. Elevated fire weather conditions will be possible this afternoon in Eastern Colorado.

Sunday afternoon, an embedded mid-level shortwave trough will move into the Tri-State region. A few isolated, high based showers and thunderstorms may kick off in Eastern Colorado Sunday afternoon and evening. I think the best chance for any showers or storms will be to the north and west of the CWA, along the front where instability is greater. Marginal SBCAPE values and MLCAPE values will be present (around 1000 J/kg). Around late afternoon, mid-level lapse rates will be at or near dry adiabatic (9.8 C/km). The GFS, NAM, and HRRR all show an inverted v sounding around late afternoon into early evening in Eastern Colorado. Would anticipate the main threat with any storms that develop to be wind though a little hail cannot be entirely ruled out. The potential for showers and storms should stay limited to areas along and west of the Kansas-Colorado border, with chances diminishing around midnight. Low temperatures will range from the upper 50s in the west to mid-60s in the east.

The ridge will remain over the Central and Northern High Plains through the day Monday with heat and potential fire weather issues being the main concerns. Expected high temperatures will range from the low to mid-90s. Afternoon relative humidity values will fall into the mid-teens to low 20s along and west of Highway 27. Winds will be a limiting factor with gusts to around 15-19kts in the afternoon. A weak, mid-level shortwave trough may bring a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms Monday night. Severe weather is not anticipated at this time.

The heat will continue into Tuesday with temperatures in the 90s. Relative humidity values will once again be down into the upper teens to low 20s along and east of Highway 27, with the lowest values in Cheyenne and Kit Carson counties in Colorado. Winds will gust into the mid-teens in the afternoon. Through the day, the ridge will begin to flatten and models show another shortwave trough moving through the northern part of the region. A cold front will surge south into Nebraska which could help kick off a few showers and storms in the afternoon and evening. Overnight lows will be in the mid-50s to mid-60s.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Saturday) Issued at 235 AM MDT Sun May 31 2020

Long range guidance suggests that the Tri-State area will be situated on the N-NW periphery of an upper level ridge (itself situated over much of the Southern Plains, Lower MS River Valley and Deep South). Considerable uncertainty persists w/regard to the orientation and magnitude of the ridge over the High Plains -- the majority of which appears to be linked to the evolution of a cut-off low offshore the Southern Pacific Coast. With the above in mind, above normal temperatures are anticipated to persist throughout the week. Convection will be possible in the lee of the Rockies during the late aft/eve hours each day, though, at this range -- convective coverage (and the eastern extent thereof) cannot reasonably be ascertained -- other than to say that the relative best chance will be in the climatologically favored areas (Foothills/Palmer Divide).

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning) Issued at 520 AM MDT Sun May 31 2020

VFR conditions are expected throughout the TAF period at KGLD and KMCK terminals. A ridge will remain over the Central High Plains today into tomorrow with above normal temperatures expected.

At KGLD, winds will be from the south through the day, increasing to around 17kts this evening. Some low level wind shear may be possible for an hour or two around 05Z.

At KMCK, winds will increase through the morning with sustained southeasterly winds around 12kts with gusts to 20kts. Winds will remain breezy this evening around 15kts at 03Z with some low level wind shear possible. Winds will gradually become southerly after midnight and diminish to around 12kts around 09Z.

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.
