NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Grand Junction Colorado 
issued by National Weather Service Denver Colorado 
253 PM MDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Short term...(tonight through Thursday night) 
issued at 245 PM MDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Convective clouds will dissipate this evening leaving nearly clear 
skies and light winds. Some high clouds will spread over northern 
areas but at first they will be pretty thin. Dropped low temperatures a 
few degrees...especially in the southern part of the area. On 
Thursday high clouds should thicken over the north...while low 
levels will be dry enough to keep lower level convective clouds to 
a minimum. Much drier air will be moving in Thursday night for 
clearing from the west and another cool night. 


Long term...(friday through wednesday) 
issued at 245 PM MDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Warm dry air will be over the area on Friday and Saturday. Pretty 
good agreement on a trough for late Sunday or early Monday...but 
discrepancies remain as far as the intensity. European model (ecmwf) still stronger 
with a strong enough trough for a showery period...while the 
weaker solutions might just be a quick band of showers...and even 
less in the south. Stronger solutions could bring the showers and 
cold air together enough to lower snow levels to the higher 
valleys and northwestern Colorado...though temperatures would be 
marginal so impact would be lessened. Pretty good chance of some 
light snow in the higher mountains in this period...but again 
maybe less in southern Colorado. For now the consensus temperature 
forecast is fine with temperatures dropping 10-15 degrees on 
Monday after a warm weekend. Then dry again behind the trough but 
not as warm.

Aviation...(for the 18z tafs through 18z Thursday afternoon) 
issued at 245 PM MDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Convective clouds and isolated showers over the Colorado mountains 
will dissipate by 03z...then only thin high clouds and light winds 
are expected through Thursday.
