Longmont Weather Forecast 6/29-30/2020

In Brief:

Heat is interrupted by a passing trough Tuesday/Wednesday to be replaced by days of above normal heat again with daily thunderstorm chances.

Forecast Discussion:

No large scale storms are in the offing, but there is a fair amount of (mainly) Pacific moisture in place across our region (Figure 1 in the gallery). Daily afternoon storms, forming in the mountains and wandering eastward, will be the rule.  For Tuesday/Wednesday, a trough passes the state (with most of the cold air aloft remaining north of Colorado (Figure 2)).  This will cool us to normal temperatures and enhance the afternoon storm chances a bit (green circle Figure 3). The fires in the southwest are are being brought under control so we are seeing much less smoke/haze around northern Colorado (Figure 4). Rainfall, according to the GFS, is very light and spotty over the next 5 days (Figure 5).

The Longer Range Forecast:

By Thursday, a ridge reestablishes itself over the West. By Saturday the entire nation is under a ridge coast to coast (Figure 6). We return to high temperatures in the mid 90'sF most days with afternoon storm chances (Figure 3).  Unfortunately, fire weather conditions will be elevated and these storms might produce some lightning sparked fires.

Independence Day:

We will have a big ridge over most of the U.S. for Independence Day with high in the lower 90'sF and a fair chance of an afternoon thunderstorm. Summer and typical 4th of July weather.
