OF UPPER RIDGE BUILDING OVER THE ROCKIES. FRONT WILL SURGE
EASTWARD TODAY/TONIGHT BRINGING WARMER TEMPERATURES TO PORTIONS OF
THE CWA. PROBLEM IS ON THE SD PLAINS WHERE 12Z KUNR SOUNDING
SUGGESTS THE WARM AIR MAY OVERRIDE THE COLD AIR NEAR THE SURFACE
THROUGH THE DAY-TIME HOURS. THIS WILL CREATE A VERY TIGHT
TEMPERATURE GRADIENT WITH 40S OVER THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND 20S
ON THE PLAINS. HAVE MADE MINOR ADJUSTMENTS TO CURRENT FORECAST FOR
LATEST TRENDS.

&&

ISSUED AT 321 AM MST THU NOV 27 2014

UPPER LEVEL ANALYSIS HAS A TROF OVER THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WITH A 
RIDGE OVER THE WEST COAST. FAST NORTHWEST FLOW CONTINUES OVER THE 
NORTHERN PLAINS IN BETWEEN THESE TWO FEATURES...WITH 120KT JET 
ACROSS THE WESTERN DAKOTAS. SKIES ARE CLOUDY WITH SOME PATCHY FOG 
NEAR THE FOOTHILLS. RADAR SHOWS SOME LIGHT RETURNS /SNOW/ ACROSS 
PORTIONS OF THE WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA PLAINS. 

FOR TODAY...THE WESTERN RIDGE AND WARMER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD 
INTO THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND PLAINS. THERE WILL BE A WIDE RANGE OF 
TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA AS THE COLDER AIR RETREATS TO 
THE EAST AND WARMER AIR MOVES IN FROM THE SOUTHWEST. OVERALL HIGHS 
WILL BE TRICKY TODAY...ESPECIALLY IN THE TRANSITION ZONE CLOSE TO 
THE EASTERN FOOTHILLS WHERE HIGHS COULD EASILY VARY 20 DEGREES 
WITHIN A FEW MILES. OVERALL EXPECTING HIGHS TO RANGE FROM THE MID 
50S IN NORTHEASTERN WYOMING TO THE MID 20S TOWARD NORTH CENTRAL 
SOUTH DAKOTA. AS FAR AS PRECIPITATION GOES...A CHANCE FOR LIGHT SNOW 
THIS MORNING IS POSSIBLE OVER FAR NORTHWESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA WITH A 
CHANCE FOR FREEZING RAIN IN THIS SAME AREA THIS AFTERNOON AS WARMER 
AIR JUST ABOVE THE SURFACE ADVECTS INTO THAT REGION. ALSO COULD SEE 
SOME FLURRIES IN SOUTH CENTRAL SOUTH DAKOTA THROUGH EARLY THIS 
MORNING. 

FOR TONIGHT...PRECIPITATION WILL LIFT NORTH AND EAST OF THE AREA. 
TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE MID 20S TO UPPER 30S WITH NEAR STEADY 
TEMPERATURES OVER NORTHWESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA.

FOR FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT...UPPER FLOW BECOMES MORE ZONAL WITH WARM AIR 
IN PLACE OVER THE FORECAST AREA. 850MB TEMPS BETWEEN +10 AND +15 
SHOULD TRANSLATE INTO SURFACE HIGHS IN THE MID 40S TO UPPER 50S. 
WITH WESTERLY FLOW...EXPECT GUSTY WEST/SOUTHWEST WINDS ESPECIALLY 
OVER NORTHEASTERN WYOMING. WITH GUSTY WINDS CONTINUING OVERNIGHT... 
TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN FAIRLY MILD WITH LOWS ONLY IN THE MID 20S 
TO MID 30S.

ISSUED AT 321 AM MST THU NOV 27 2014

THE NEXT TROUGH WILL CROSS THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SATURDAY...
BRINGING A SURGE OF COLD AIR TO THE NORTHERN PLAINS. A STRONG COLD
FRONT WILL CROSS THE CWA SATURDAY NIGHT. MAX TEMPS WILL CONTINUE
TO BE TRICKY FOR SATURDAY SINCE IT WILL LARGELY DEPEND ON THE
TIMING OF THE FRONTAL PASSAGE. SOME LIGHT SNOW IS POSSIBLE SAT
NIGHT INTO SUNDAY...BUT JUST LIGHT QPF IS EXPECTED. SUNDAY LOOKS
COLD...WITH HIGHS ONLY IN THE TEENS. MODELS SUGGEST MAINLY DRY
CONDITIONS WITH MODERATING TEMPERATURES EARLY NEXT WEEK.
