DISCUSSION...
Short and medium range models are in decent agreement that an
upper level ridge of high pressure will situate itself over the
southwest states through most of this week while an upper level
trof of low pressure persists over the Great Lakes and eastern
states. This places our fcst area in some semblance of northwest
flow aloft which is usually favorable for steering tstorms into
our region from sern CO and nern NM. Have incorporated slgt chc
to low end chc pops for several periods from Tuesday through
Wednesday night and then again Friday through Saturday night
based on latest model consensus. Above normal temperatures will
also return to the area by the middle of this week before another
cold front moves across the area on Friday with cooler temps next
weekend.
