SHORT TERM. (This evening through Tuesday night) Issued at 135 PM MST Mon Dec 9 2019

Across the Tri State region this afternoon, other than a few thin mid level clouds over western portions of the area, sunny skies are abound. The full sunshine has afforded the CWA temperatures currently in a range of lower and mid 30s as of 100 pm MST. NNW gradient still remains across the entire CWA this afternoon with gusts still reaching the 30-40 mph range at times.

The trend for the remainder of the afternoon hours on into the evening/overnight period will have current NNW flow begin to abate as surface ridge continues to slide ESE into the central Plains. Surface winds will trend to more westerly overnight as a result, and then to a SW fetch by morning and into the day Tuesday. This will be aided by a building lee-side trough along the Front Range. This setup will remain intact into Tuesday night. With NW flow aloft as an amplified ridge builds to our west, the area will be looking at a slow warming trend thru the short term. While there will be no appreciable wx over the next 36+ hours, the transition of the ridge across eastern portions of the CWA could bring about a brief period of low cloud and/or fog after 10z Tuesday. Prob is low but hint is there in Bufkit and will have to monitor for later updates.

For temps, highs in the low to mid 40s on Tuesday as a result of the SW flow over the region. For overnight lows, teens tonight under clear skies will give way to low and mid 20s Tuesday night as persistent SW flow remains.

LONG TERM. (Wednesday through Monday) Issued at 207 PM MST Mon Dec 9 2019

For the extended period, amplified upper ridge over the west will begin to break down to more zonal flow as the midweek approaches. Latest ECMWF and GFS do show a weak shortwave shifting east off the Rockies late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. With better dynamics north of the CWA, the passage of this will only bring about some cloudy/mostly cloudy skies before clearing out.

Zonal flow remains with dry conditions for much of Thursday into early Friday morning. A stronger shortwave works off the Pacific and slowly eastward into the Rockies. At this time it does look like pieces of the eastern edge will clip portions of the CWA Friday and into Saturday. This shortwave will move across the CWA over the upcoming weekend for a better potential for cwa-wide precip. Position of the trough and timing of the system do differ with the GFS/ECMWF, but some light accum of snow . mixed with rain will occur. With the aforementioned upper system, surface high builds south from the northern Plains with a surface low over the southern Plains. Easterly flow between the two could provide additional orographic support for more precip. But with the latest guidance not in good agreement with timing and positioning of system coming thru, amounts will be in flux especially this far out.

For temps, highs in the 40s and 50s into Friday before colder air arrives this weekend for 40s on Saturday and 30s for Sunday and next Monday. Overnight lows mainly 20s with teens returning late into this weekend.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Tuesday evening) Issued at 424 PM MST Mon Dec 9 2019

VFR conditions are expected to prevail throughout the TAF forecast period at both KGLD and KMCK. Winds will be light overnight generally under 10 kts turning from northwesterly to westerly to southwesterly by Tuesday morning. There is a chance for some low clouds to develop Tuesday morning at KMCK. Have kept a mention for a SCT cloud deck at 2 kft for KMCK. If this becomes a BKN or OVC cloud deck, then this would become MVFR conditions at KMCK Tuesday morning.

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.
