.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 501 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017
VFR conditions will prevail at all TAF sites tonight as a weak
ridge remains overhead. Southwesterly flow will then increase
after 12Z as our next disturbance moves into the region. This will
result in some gusty winds during the afternoon but VFR conditions
are expected to continue. Isolated orographic showers could begin
as early as 18Z but the bulk of moisture with this system will
not arrive until after 00Z when the chance for lower cigs and
precipitation increases.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Saturday afternoon)
Issued at 222 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017
|WEST OF THE DIVIDE...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS ROUTES
Conditions will remain VFR through early this evening as ridge axis
sweeps across the forecast area. Mid and high clouds will continue
to increase across the west through this evening ahead of the next
storm system. Trough and associated deeper moisture will bring
lowering clouds to KJAC between about 05Z-08Z/Sat. Expect MVFR and
light snow early on at KJAC, transitioning to IFR conditions between
09Z and 12Z/Sat. These conditions will continue until 17Z/Sat with the
best chance for IFR conditions coming between 10Z-14Z/Sat. Moisture
will increase around KBPI and KPNA Saturday morning with MVFR and light
snow anticipated to begin between 15Z and 18Z/Sat. The best chance for
snow at KBPI and KPNA will be from about 16Z to 20Z/Sat. Downsloping
west-northwest flow will push into the Upper Green River Basin after
this time with conditions improving to low end VFR. KRKS will remain
VFR into Saturday afternoon. Eastward moving trough will spread rain
across southwest Wyoming between 18Z/Sat and 00Z/Sun. The period after
20Z/Sat will represent the best opportunity for MVFR conditions with
light rain at KRKS. Mountain obscurations will be widespread between
06Z and 18Z/Sat, with mountain top obscurations persisting until
00Z/Sun.
EAST OF THE DIVIDE...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL ROUTES
VFR conditions will prevail throughout the period. Mid and high clouds
will increase this evening and overnight. Generally, wind speeds will
be less than 10kts with the exception of 10-12kts southwest wind at
KCPR overnight. This surface wind at KCPR will increase to 14-24kts
between 12Z-14Z/Sat as the upstream trough reaches western Wyoming.
This trough will provide enough moisture to generate scattered rain
showers east of the Continental Divide during the afternoon. Have
trended in that direction with mid-cloud ceilings and VCSH at most
terminals after 20Z/Sat. Weak frontal boundary will sag south
during the afternoon with gusty northerly wind in the Big Horn
Basin late in the period. Mountain tops will be obscured above
10-11K feet MSL after 20Z/Sat.|

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through Saturday afternoon)
VFR conditions are expected tonight and into early Saturday as high
pressure aloft builds over the region. SCT to BKN CIGS at 5k feel
AGL will gradually dissipate this evening with clearing skies
overnight. Mid to upper level clouds will quickly follow by Saturday
morning as the next cold front moves into Wyoming. MVFR or IFR
conditions are possible Saturday night, mainly across southeast
Wyoming.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 537 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017
Main forecast concern centers on how fast lower clouds scour out
of the TAF sites as upper low continues to track to the east
across Oklahoma. Lingering precipitation may bring pockets of
lower cigs/visby through 02z...but with departing low and cloud
tops steadily warming thing this will diminish soon. Based on
observational trends...think ongoing guidance may be too
pessimistic about holding onto sub 2000 ft cigs this evening and
have trended cigs up to some degree. Skies should start to clear
from the northwest...but with favorable soundings across eastern
CWA including KMCK think some morning fog developing behind the
departing cloud deck looks reasonable.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 638 PM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017
As the upper low pulls away through the night, we will continue to
see cold advection and remnant low clouds behind the cyclone,
leading to IFR ceiling around 700 to 1000 feet. The ceiling may
periodically go into MVFR, but the best indication is that ceiling
will predominantly be in the upper IFR cat. In the 09-12z time
frame, ceiling will scatter and we will see VFR conditions
resuming areawide. Winds will remain from the north to northwest
through the period with a gradual decrease in intensity through
the TAF period.

AVIATION...
For the 00z TAFs...
North northwest surface winds will diminish slowly this evening,
with gusts above 30 kt expected to continue past 06z.  Cold air
advection will utilize wrap-around moisture from departing strong
closed low to promote the development of MVFR to VFR stratocumulus
this evening.  Amendments may be forthcoming regarding timing of
improvement.  Northwest surface winds cease gusting between 06z
and 12z Saturday as pressure gradient relaxes.  Light northwest
winds Saturday morning will trend to west and southwest by day`s
end as next lee trof develops over eastern New Mexico.  Clear sky
expected on Saturday with no visibility restrictions foreseen.
