Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Grand Junction Colorado 256 PM MDT Monday Jun 29 2015 Short term...(tonight through Tuesday night) issued at 256 PM MDT Monday Jun 29 2015 In spite of above normal afternoon heating and available moisture...afternoon thunderstorm coverage was limited. Subsidence associated with the Utah Ridge was strongest over northwest Colorado...and weakest in the southeast San Juan Mountains convective updraft strength is limited but the dcape value is at 1335 j/kg...an indicator of strong downdrafts and thus strong and gusty outflow winds. Some San Juan mountain storms may produce small hail and very strong winds gusts this late afternoon. Northwest Colorado will see little to no thunderstorm coverage this afternoon. Tonight a few showers could persist over the southern mountains until midnight. Otherwise most storms will dissipate with sunset. Overnight low temperatures will generally be some 10 degrees above normal except near normal across the north. Little change is expected on Tuesday in the overall pattern. The high pressure ridge remains parked over the central rockies to the Great Basin...centered over Utah. Therefore hot conditions will persist...with convection again developing in the afternoon. Expect there may be a few more thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon/evening as precipitable water values approach an inch. Storms will mostly end by midnight...however moisture continues to slowly increase overnight. Therefore I would not rule out a few nocturnal storms. Temperatures will again reach into the triple digits in the Lower Desert valleys. Also overnight lows will be on the warm side due to the higher dew points. Long term...(wednesday through monday) issued at 256 PM MDT Monday Jun 29 2015 On Wednesday...the high pressure ridge will get pushed to the west somewhat as a shortwave drops into the northern plains. The combination will allow a little better instability over our forecast area. And with precipitable water over an inch expect an uptick in showers and thunderstorms by the afternoon. Convective activity will gradually wind down late in the evening...especially from the northwest as drier air begins spread in. This drier air will result in a downturn to the afternoon convection through the remainder of the week. The ridge again shifts east and moves over The Four Corners during the weekend. By Monday the high center is prognosticated to be just to our east. If this comes to pass...it may open the door a better moisture tap from the south. Above normal temperatures will persist...with plenty highs reaching 100 degrees or better in the Lower Desert valleys. Nighttime lows may be a little cooler midweek and beyond as the air mass dries out. && Aviation...(for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday afternoon) issued at 256 PM MDT Monday Jun 29 2015 VFR conditions will prevail through Tuesday. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will continue until 02z mainly over the southern and central mountains. Kmtj ktex kdro have a 30 percent potential for thundershowers... a 10 percent chance in kase kege. The main threat is outflow wind gusts up 45 kts. Similar thunderstorm threat is expected Tuesday after 18z. && Gjt watches/warnings/advisories... Colorado...none. Utah...none. && $$ Short term...Joe/eh long term...eh aviation...Joe
