STP 07-29-2015: Mostly Sunny and Cooler, with a Few Showers and Weak Thunderstorms

Issue Date: Wednesday, July 29th, 2015
Issue Time: 9:00 AM MDT

Summary:

After the passage of a weak cool front, Colorado received a cool down on high temperatures as compared to previous days. Breezy conditions accompanied this cooler air at times, and it was an overall pleasant day across the state. A few showers/weak thunderstorms were able to develop (mainly during the evening/overnight hours) over central/southern mountains and lower elevations of eastern Colorado, but nothing of note. The best dynamic forcing associated with the disturbance mentioned in yesterday’s FTB existed to the south and east of Colorado, causing the best rainfall to occur across northeast NM, southwest KS, and the OK pandhandle. As it slid by, a prolonged period of light rain impacted eastern Baca County.

There weren’t any severe storm reports from yesterday, and no flash flooding was observed.
