Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Friday, May 29, 2015
Today we see low pressure to the north but moving eastward, for less moisture across the area, but still enough instability for scattered coverage of thunderstorms (about 30% coverage) this afternoon. Saturday and Sunday we expect a warming and drying trend as high pressure ridging aloft builds in pretty strong across the central Rocky Mountains. It will be very spring-like for a change. More low pressure approaches from the northwest US and sits across that area next Monday through Wednesday, for mostly dry conditions under a southwest wind flow aloft across Colorado. Temperatures will still be warm. We see another increase in mainly afternoon thunderstorms and showers again late next week, with temperatures dropping a bit, as low pressure across the northwest US moves across mainly to the north.

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.
It looks like a strong El Nino may be in effect this fall and winter. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
