Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 114 pm mdt Sat aug 24 2019
water vapor showing upper trof axis has shifted southeast into
the far northeast corner of colorado this afternoon with building
ridge of higher pressure upstream. QG fields showing increasing
subsident flow over the northeast plains by this evening so not
expecting any thunderstorms over the county warning area tonight.

Further west towards the mountains, fair amount of mountain wave
clouds this afternoon with decent gusty winds over the higher
mountains passes with gusts in the 40-50 mph range up on berthoud
pass today. Cloud cover has also kept temperatures a bit cooler
today, more in the lower 80s so far this afternoon.

Sunday will be characterized by a dry and moderate northwest flow
regime across colorado. Main concerns will be the high fire
danger, which will be addressed below with gusty winds and low
humidities over mountains and higher terrain areas. Temperatures
will warm considerably by Sunday afternoon with readings climbing
well into the mid upper 90s as 700mb temperatures rise to around
+19c. The record for denver is 99 degrees, so may be a degree or
2 shy. Forecast soundings show a dry airmass over the region with
warming aloft and no chance for thunderstorms in the county
warning area. Airmass will become well mixed by Sunday afternoon
with gusty winds in the mountains and plains. Cross sections showing
continue potential wind gusts of 30 to 50 mph over mountain passes.

Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 300 pm mdt Sat aug 24 2019
a big pattern change will begin to take place on Sunday night lasting
through the middle of the work week. This pattern will feature a
strong longwave trough over the northern great plains with a
surface cyclone over souther canada. The GEFS has the 500 mb
heights in this trough at the minimum in the database over the
north dakota area on Tuesday to give an idea of the strength and
cold air associated with this trough. At the surface, a series of
cold fronts will move through eastern colorado with the first
arriving early Monday morning. This will cool high temperatures to
the upper 70s and low 80s across the plains Monday afternoon. A
longmont anticyclone will develop with strong northwest winds
across the cheyenne ridge and northeast winds over the palmer
divide. The slight upslope flow over the palmer divide could
develop a shower or two Monday afternoon but there will be a
strong mid level inversion which will greatly limit any shower
activity.

Another cold front will push through the area on Tuesday with even
cooler air behind it. High were decreased to the 70s over the
plains since there will likely be some cloudiness during the day.

Showers and perhaps a weak thunderstorm will be possible along
this front especially if the front comes through during the
afternoon peak heating.

The trough will continue to move eastward on Wednesday with an
upper level ridge building over the southwest us. Downslope flow
over our CWA will allow temperatures to climb slightly above
normal with dry conditions. Weak shortwaves will move around the
northern extent of this ridge on Thursday and Friday bringing a
chance for scattered thunderstorms. Highs will be above normal and
denver may get back into the 90s.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Sunday afternoon)
issued at 114 pm mdt Sat aug 24 2019
vfr with still a good batch of mountain wave cloudiness
today and this evening. Northerly winds at local terminals will
shift east and southeast this evening before turning southerly
drainage overnight. Airmass is dry in low levels with no
thunderstorms expected through Monday.

Fire weather
Issued at 114 pm mdt Sat aug 24 2019
fire danger will be increasing by Sunday afternoon over the
mountains and higher terrain towards the wyoming border. Minimum
humidity levels will be dropping below 15 percent while mountain
wind gusts expected in the 30 to 50 mph range during the
afternoon. Will be upgrading the fire weather watch to a red flag
warning for current areas. High mountains will be windy but
humidities will be above 20 percent so won't have any flags raised
there.

Bou watches warnings advisories
Red flag warning from 11 am to 8 pm mdt Sunday for coz211-
213>215-238-242.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
