NWS Forecast Discussion
Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO 946 AM MST Sat Jan 12 2019 .UPDATE... Issued at 946 AM MST Sat Jan 12 2019 The highly blocked upper air pattern over the Intermountain West is causing the area of snowfall over Colorado this morning to move out very slowly. The area of light snow has been slowly drifting southward with flurries lingering over Denver and its suburbs to the present time. Clearing conditions are slowly arriving from the north. Weak snow showers or flurries may continue over the central Colorado mountains through the afternoon, although web cameras do not show any evidence of accumulating snow at this time. Previous forecast showed a gradual improvement through the rest of today, and will not make any changes to that. Any snow showers that persist into this afternoon will be aided by diurnal warming which will go away as the sun goes down. This should allow the forecast area to be entirely dry overnight. && .SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight) Issued at 136 AM MST Sat Jan 12 2019 Upper low has slowly shifted east into central Kansas and Oklahoma this morning with eastern Colorado still on the back side of the upper low. KFTG vad winds showing northerly flow still up to mountain top level with still very light snow ongoing across portions of the foothills and plains. Water vapor imagery also showing weak low pressure remains across western Colorado while blocking high over the northern rockies will keep low pressure across southern and western Colorado. Another system moving through Southern California will merge into the weak low pressure over Western Colorado and resulting in continued areas of light snow over southern portions, generally along and south of the interstate 70 corridor. Only very weak QG ascent noted with this system so expect only minimal accumulation`s over next 24 hours. Given the sluggish movement with the synoptic pattern expect a fair amount of cloudiness will remain over the plains and continued cool temperatures. Readings expected to remain in the 30s. With only lingering light snow will cancel with winter storm warning over the southern foothills/Palmer Divide with only an additional inch of snow expected. For tonight, will add some areas of fog on the plains to the forecast under moist, southeast flow over the far plains. Further north near the Wyoming border and away from the system, should be less clouds.
