- Elevated to critical fire weather conditions over the plains Monday afternoon.

- Cooler, windy and unsettled the rest of the week. Occasional snow, showers in the mountains with some chances of rain showers for the plains.

UPDATE
Issued at 800 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Current satellite imagery shows clouds are moving out for the evening. Radar indicates one outflow boundary currently passing through DIA that will keep winds northeasterly a tad longer, before transitioning to drainage overnight. Aside from a few tweaks to wind direction, the current forecast looks to be on track.

SHORT TERM /Through Sunday/
Issued at 127 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

A weak wave embedded in the southwest flow aloft over eastern Colorado will continue to progress eastward and be east of the state by early evening. Weak instability, mid level moisture, and lift from the wave will continue to produce isolated/scattered high based showers through the afternoon. Low levels of the airmass are dry, so any rainfall is expected to be very light.
Gusty outflow winds to 50 mph will be possible with the showers, though most of the gusts should be less than 30 mph. As the wave shifts east of Colorado and the loss of daytime heating, the showers quickly come to an end by early evening, if not sooner.
Skies then clear for tonight and for Sunday. Mostly sunny skies and a warm airmass will push temperatures to above 80 degrees over much of northeast Colorado Sunday afternoon.

LONG TERM /Sunday night through Saturday/
Issued at 300 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

Models have upper ridging pushing eastward Sunday night with southwesterly flow aloft ahead of an upper low pressure system moving into Colorado. The tracks of the upper low from the various models are in less agreement this 12Z run compared to yesterday's 12Z model runs. Most of them have slowed down a bit as well. The synoptic scale energy on the QG Omega fields is fairly decent until 06Z Monday night. The low level pressure and wind fields show very little to no upslope anywhere over the plains with this system now. Also, there isn't much cold air with it. Models do show a weak cold front to move across late Monday afternoon and evening but nothing significant. The lows Monday night don't look to get below freezing anywhere on the plains. The precipitation will stay as rain and linger well into Tuesday. There should be a decent high mountain snowfall with the amount of moisture and energy progged with this system Monday night and Tuesday. Pops will now linger well into Tuesday afternoon for much of the CWA now. For temperatures, Monday's highs now look to be only a bit cooler than Sunday's, with 70s F over all the plains and even lower 80s over the eastern border plains. Tuesday's highs are in the 60s F over the plains.

For the later days, Wednesday through Saturday, models still have the strong zonal upper level flow in place for the CWA, but now the jet maximum is progged to be to our north and not right over Colorado as the 12Z model runs indicated yesterday. One of the major changes with this is that the temperatures over the plains will get into the 60s F Wednesday before the cold front moves in during the afternoon. Temperature and thickness fields also show that we do not get as cold Thursday through Saturday as was previously indicated. There is some moisture in place and limited QPF for some of the CWA all four days, but less than yesterday's runs indicated.

AVIATION /06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday/
Issued at 1137 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

VFR conditions will prevail for all terminals through the TAF period, with some FEW-SCT high clouds at/above FL180 Sunday afternoon.

Current southeasterly flow in the vicinity of KDEN will transition over to more typical southerly drainage flow within the next 2-3 hours. On Sunday, a well-mixed environment should produce enhanced southeasterly winds most of the day with gusts at times exceeding 20 kts, mainly for KDEN/KAPA. This robust southeasterly flow could hold together longer than usual into the evening and early overnight period, with some guidance even suggesting a little strengthening after ~2100 MT as pre-frontal southeast flow aloft continues to mix down to the surface due to a late decoupling (i.e. inversion development). Eventually, weaker drainage flow should return Sunday night.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 300 PM MDT Sat Apr 13 2024

It will be warm with highs around 80 degrees and relative humidity falling into the 10-14 percent range over northeast Sunday afternoon. Southerly winds will prevail and slowly increase through the afternoon with gusts approaching 25 mph over the eastern plains, which will elevate the fire danger.

Warm temperatures and low humidity levels along with fairly strong surface winds will likely cause critical fire weather conditions Monday afternoon and early evening for the the eastern and southern plains. For the rest of the week, cooler, more moist conditions will keep critical fire weather conditions at bay.

BOU WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
None.
