.SHORT TERM...(THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY)
ISSUED AT 307 PM MST SUN JAN 25 2015

HIGH AMPLITUDE RIDGE WILL SHIFT EASTWARD ACROSS THE STATE ON
MONDAY. THIS WILL BRING UNSEASONABLY WARM CONDITIONS TO THE ENTIRE
FORECAST AREA UNDER SUNNY SKIES. UNTIL THEN...JUST SOME THIN
CIRRUS WILL DRIFT OVER THE FORECAST AREA TONIGHT. TEMPERATURES
WILL BE MILD TONIGHT WITH LIGHT DOWNSLOPE COMPONENT AND WARMER
AIRMASS.

HIGH TEMPERATURES ON MONDAY WILL REACH THE MID AND UPPER 60S OVER
MOST OF THE PLAINS...WITH A COUPLE 70F DEGREE READINGS EXPECTED
IN/NEAR THE FRONT RANGE URBAN CORRIDOR. DENVER RECORD HIGH FOR
MONDAY IS 73 DEGREES SET IN 1982...BUT FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOW
HIGHS SHOULD BE CAPPED OFF NEAR 70 SO NOT ANTICIPATING ANY RECORDS
AT THIS POINT. SUNNY SKIES AND LIGHT WINDS WILL ACCOMPANY THE
SPRINGLIKE WARMTH.

.LONG TERM...(MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY)
ISSUED AT 307 PM MST SUN JAN 25 2015

STRONG UPPER LEVEL RIDGING WILL CONTINUE OVER COLORADO ON TUESDAY
WITH WARM AND MOSTLY SUNNY WEATHER CONTINUING. MOUNTAIN AREAS MAY
SEE INCREASING CLOUDS BY AFTERNOON AS MID AND UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE
BEGIN MOVING INTO THE STATE FROM THE SOUTHWEST. AT THAT TIME...AN
EJECTING UPPER TROUGH THAT HAD ORIGINATED AS AN UPPER LOW OFF OF
BAJA CALIFORNIA WILL BE MOVING THROUGH THE UPPER RIDGE. THE
MOUNTAINS COULD PICK UP SOME LIGHT SNOW ON WEDNESDAY AS THIS
FEATURE MOVES ACROSS. UPPER RIDGING WILL RE-BUILD OVER THE STATE
THURSDAY FOR MORE DRY WEATHER. TEMPERATURES FOR THE LATTER HALF OF
THE WEEK WILL BE A LITTLE COOLER AFTER PASSAGE OF A WEAK COLD
FRONT WEDNESDAY NIGHT. NORTHERLY FLOW THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE
WEEK WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES AROUND SEASONAL NORMALS AFTER THE
WARM SNAP EARLY THIS WEEK.

ANOTHER CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION WILL SPREAD OVER THE FORECAST AREA
FRIDAY NIGHT AND SATURDAY AS THE DEFORMATION BAND FROM AN UPPER
LOW OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SPREADS ACROSS NORTHERN NEW MEXICO
AND COLORADO. THIS PARENT UPPER LOW IS CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO
REMAIN SOUTH OF COLORADO WHICH WILL MAKE ANY PRECIPITATION THAT
COMES UP OVER COLORADO GENERALLY LIGHT. WILL JUST HAVE TO KEEP AN
EYE ON HOW THE PAIR OF UPPER LOWS IN THE BAJA VICINITY BEHAVE
THROUGH THE WEEK.
