SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday night) Issued at 153 PM MDT Mon Apr 19 2021

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for tonight across a portion of the forecast area.

The primary concern in the short term is the amount of snowfall expected mainly this evening, but also through the entire overnight period tonight as a spring storm system moves across the central High Plains region.

The main upper trough axis rotating around the upper low center over the Great Lakes sweeps across the central Rockies and moves east of the central High Plains region on Tuesday with westerly flow over the area shearing a short wave trough out across the area Wednesday night.

Cold high pressure continues to push into the region tonight and Tuesday with the bulk of the expected snowfall to come this evening across the northwest corner before transitioning across the east and southeast sections of the area after midnight. Generally one to three inches is possible across the majority of the area with around four inches of snow possible over the northwest and a smaller portion of the southeast. The Winter Weather Advisory was issued mainly for the snowfall amounts along with the potential impacts of snow falling on warmer pavement followed by ambient air temperatures well below freezing. That type of setup can lead to slick road conditions, especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses. Also with plenty of new young livestock across the region, wet, windy, and cold conditions will have a strong negative impact. Temperatures tonight into early Tuesday may also end up breaking several record low temperatures across the region.

Dry conditions are expected from Tuesday through Wednesday with some light mixed precipitation showing up again Wednesday night into early Thursday morning as weaker disturbances move east of the Rockies and across the central High Plains.

Temperatures begin to warm on Wednesday and are expected to continue to warm during the remainder of the work week into the weekend.

LONG TERM. (Thursday through Monday) Issued at 131 PM MDT Mon Apr 19 2021

Going into the extended period, the latest GFS/ECMWF both show the Thursday and Friday timeframes as the best chances for light precipitation to affect some/all of the CWA. After this, dry conditions and warming temps will ensue.

The system for Thursday at this time looks to be the best for areal coverage. Both the GFS/ECMWF show southerly flow feeding in moisture at the surface, with the GFS higher for QPF. The Friday shortwave passes too far north but subsequent runs could come more in line for light precip and should be monitored. Temp profiles support a rain/snow mix on Thursday/Thursday night, with maybe a few tenths of an inch of snow, especially north of Hwy 36 closest to the upper system.

The remainder of the extended, Saturday into next Monday will see warming and drying conditions as a building amplified upper ridge shifts east of the CWA on Saturday with SW flow aloft, and south- southwest flow at the surface. Strong WAA will result, but with this, RH and wind speeds are coming into line for fire wx concerns for Sunday/Monday afternoons, especially Hwy 25 and points west. RH values are approaching the mid/upper teens with potential gusts over 20 mph.

For temps, the passage of the two quick moving shortwaves during the Thu-Fri timeframes will not drag down too much cooler air to the CWA based on the west-to-east flow. The latter portion of the weekend into the upcoming weekend and the beginning of next week will have a decent upward trend with 50s on Thursday, 60s CWA-wide by Saturday and mid 70s to lower 80s for Sunday and next Monday. Overnight lows will start mostly as 30s for Thu-Fri nights but mainly 40s for Sun- Mon nights.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon) Issued at 1135 AM MDT Mon Apr 19 2021

Gusty northeast winds will move into the area along with light snow between 22-00Z late this afternoon. At GLD, flight categories will drop from MVFR to IFR by 04Z due to lower ceilings and a decrease in visibility as the main area of snow moves over the site. Snow tapers off after 08Z with a transition back to MVFR and comes to an end by 11Z with a return of VFR conditions.

MCK will have MVFR conditions becoming IFR between 04-06Z due mainly to the drop in visibility values as the main area of snow moves across the site. Conditions return to MVFR between 06-08Z with and go to VFR after 08Z as ceilings and visibility improve.

GLD WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. KS . Winter Weather Advisory from 7 PM this evening to 7 AM CDT Tuesday for KSZ001>004-014>016-029.

CO . Winter Weather Advisory from 6 PM this evening to 6 AM MDT Tuesday for COZ090.
