The wind event that I talked about at length yesterday is going to be getting going as the afternoon wears on. Winds will diminish later tonight only to return on Thursday with the potential for a few higher gusts than we experience today.
Here are the current model runs for peak wind gusts Thursday.
As I expected yesterday, the outlier GFS was incorrect forecasting mystery precipitation while we were in a dry slot.
This may change for the high elevations on Thursday and for other locations on Saturday and Sunday. The GFS is still trying to overdue the precipitation. The Euro looks better for the area than it did a couple of days ago. Tomorrow I will start posting some of the models’ precipitation runs. It is looking slightly more encouraging overall.
The only other concern in the short term would be for people traveling to Denver. Travel is going to be impacted late Thursday until late morning Friday around Denver and the Front Range Foothills.
My next update will be Thursday. If you have not seen the details for this year’s contest you can read them here: Second Annual Drawing For Cash Prizes
