SHORT TERM. (Today through Monday night) Issued at 305 AM MST Sun Mar 7 2021

Another warm Spring day is on tap for the Western Slope under mild southwest flow aloft. High temperatures today will continue to run well above seasonal normals . some areas by 10 to 15 degrees. The same can be said for overnight lows tonight with increased cloud cover minimizing the effects of radiational cooling. The influx in high cirrus clouds will be in response to the approach of a weak shortwave trough embedded in the southwest flow. This progressive midlevel disturbance will quickly trek across southeast Utah around daybreak Monday before skirting east of the Continental Divide that evening. While latest guidance has trended with a wetter solution for this shortwave, I'm not quite convinced. Precipitable water values do look to increase to 0 25 to 0.35 inches. or near to around 130% of the normal for early March. And Bufkit soundings for sites in the favored San Juan Mountains do show a decently saturated profile. However, QG plots show weak support aloft on Monday and, with the dry antecedent conditions and short residence time of the shortwave, moderate to heavy precipitation looks unlikely at this time. Therefore, have trended towards the drier Euro solution with only isolated to scattered showers on Monday, favoring the San Juan Mountains with upwards of a few tenths of an inch of QPF expected. Will continue to monitor the latest model runs for any significant changes but, on the whole, the dry weather looks to continue for the majority of our region on Monday. Any showers along the Divide will dissipate with the shortwave's departure Monday afternoon with dry weather expected overnight. Something the whole of the area will experience on Monday is continued above normal temperatures and breezy conditions. Highs will reach the mid 60s to low 70s for many lower elevation sites during the afternoon hours. Deep mixing into the midlevel jet will allow strong gusty winds to reach the surface Monday afternoon, though gusts look to remain below advisory criteria at this time.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Saturday) Issued at 305 AM MST Sun Mar 7 2021

On Tuesday, the positively tilted trough axis and closed low pressure will gradually progress southeastward towards the Great Basin. Associated moisture will begin to advect into the region and perhaps by late Tuesday precipitation will be possible in the higher elevations. This could be enhanced by a lead shortwave lifting out of ahead of the system. Throughout the remainder of the week precipitation chances will linger as the trough slowly moves eastward and the low pressure finally tracks through the Desert Southwest. The exact track and strength is still uncertain given the large spread in model solutions, which is typical with cut off lows. Temperatures will cool closer to normal values on Wednesday and continuing through the weekend. It appears as of now mountain snow will be focused over the northern mountains early on, then all ranges, and eventually the southern mountains as the low moves across the region. The models seem to be struggling with the speed at which the low exits the Desert Southwest, so uncertainty into the weekend and beyond is high.
