Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
357 AM MDT Mon Sep 26 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 246 AM MDT Mon Sep 26 2016

Temperatures marginal for the frost advisory with readings mainly
in the lower to mid 40s but there are some mid 30s across the
Palmer Divide and over the Northeast plains as well so will keep
the advisory in place as expect a bit more cooling before
sunrise.

Building high pressure over the Western Great Basin will keep a
moderate Northwest flow aloft over Colorado. The airmass will
remain dry and stable. Expect some low level warming today with
readings rebounding back into the 70s across the plains.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 246 AM MDT Mon Sep 26 2016

An upper ridge spread across the region will keep stable and dry
conditions and warmer than normal temperatures Tuesday and
Wednesday. Temperatures will warm 5 to 7 degrees Tuesday over
todays readings. Then a shortwave and high surface pressure
dropping south over the Great Plains will push a dry cold
front over the area for Wednesday. This will keep temperatures
similar if not a degree or two cooler on Wednesday.

A disturbance will move out of the southwestern states Thursday,
pushing subtropical moisture into the state. Scattered showers and
a few thunderstorms will be possible for the high country on
Thursday, with chances spreading across the plains as well on
Friday and Saturday as the disturbance slowly lifts northeast
across the state. Temperatures will cool slightly through the
period.

An upper trough will move out of the Pacific Northwest Saturday
to push across the state Sunday. Expect scattered showers and a
few possible thunderstorms to spread across the forecast area
Sunday afternoon with a cold front to push down that evening.
Drier and cooler airmass will push in behind that system for
Monday.
