20080809 Wx Discussion I (1458Z)

Hi, just a quick post as I'm on my way to help one of my old roomies move into her new place ...


There is a lot of moisture still hanging around in the area. The west slope should see some good terrain forcing with another weak disturbance rolling through the area today. Flash Flood Watches are up all over the west half of the state.

In the Denver area, the possibility of heavy thunderstorms exists again today. We could be in big trouble if they form in the same areas as yesterday (3" of rain in Aurora!).


The west half of the state is ripe for some severe weather today. Moisture isn't great, but with a wave moving through, we'll have enough shear to get some strong storms rotating a bit. Large hail is possible, but it looks like wind will be the main threat.

More later (hopefully).
