.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 1010 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017
Front will move through the area airports within the next couple
hours, with winds becoming northeast with gusts in the 20-30 knot
range around 16-17z. Scattered strong thunderstorms are expected
to develop this afternoon, with the main threat between 21z and
03z. Localized MVFR ceilings and IFR visibilities along with hail
are possible with the strongest storms. Multiple wind shifts with
gusts as high as 40 knots are also likely in this period. For
tonight, ceilings will lower, with areas of MVFR-IFR conditions
developing as moist upslope flow continues through the night.
Ceilings of below 1000 ft AGL may remain through 18z Friday.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 1121 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017
unseasonably strong cold front will move south across the plains
late this afternoon and evening, and an additional cold surge will
come down the plains around sunrise tomorrow. These fronts will
bring active weather to KCOS and KPUB during this fcst period.
Isolated thunderstorms, possibly strong, will be possible late
this afternoon and evening. Gusty winds and brief periods of heavy
rain may bring a brief period of mvfr conditions to KCOS and KPUB.
Later tonight, as the colder air surges south, MVFR/IFR cigs will
likely develop at KCOS and KPUB during the early morning hours.
The highest impact will likely occur during the 11-14 UTC time
period as the colder air actually surges south and precip/low cigs
will likely occur. Conditions will slowly improve late tomorrow
morning.
KALS will likely see VFR next 24 hours, although there will be a
very slight chance of hi-base -tsra later this afternoon/early
evening.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 1145 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017
Our morning sounding today looks a lot like yesterday`s...which
leads us to believe that we could be in for strong downdrafts (60
kts potentially) again this afternoon. Unfortunately, trying to
pinpoint where these will happen is near impossible, but east
central Utah (Tavaputs to Moab) and west central Colorado
(Bookcliffs to as far south as the Gunnison Basin) looks most
likely. Trying to indicate this threat in the TAFs is difficult,
but added TEMPOS in to show the highest likelihood time frames.
Otherwise, a few showers and thunderstorms here and there. The
smoke noticable in the air tonight is expected to clear late this
afternoon and this evening from north to south. The Four Corners
valleys may see some smoke settle into the valleys. Conditions are
expected to remain VFR over the next 24 hours...except for an
isolated wind gusts that may blow dust up and reduce visibility
temporarily.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 1145 AM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017
Our morning sounding today looks a lot like yesterday`s...which
leads us to believe that we could be in for strong downdrafts (60
kts potentially) again this afternoon. Unfortunately, trying to
pinpoint where these will happen is near impossible, but east
central Utah (Tavaputs to Moab) and west central Colorado
(Bookcliffs to as far south as the Gunnison Basin) looks most
likely. Trying to indicate this threat in the TAFs is difficult,
but added TEMPOS in to show the highest likelihood time frames.
Otherwise, a few showers and thunderstorms here and there. The
smoke noticable in the air tonight is expected to clear late this
afternoon and this evening from north to south. The Four Corners
valleys may see some smoke settle into the valleys. Conditions are
expected to remain VFR over the next 24 hours...except for an
isolated wind gusts that may blow dust up and reduce visibility
temporarily.

for the majority of the next 24 hours. Winds this afternoon will be
SW-W 10-20kt gusts to 30kt. Smoke from area wildfires may cause
brief MVFR visibility and may affect flight paths. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Visible satellite and sfc observations indicate a bank of IFR
cigs has formed between KGRN-KANW-KONL. Daytime heating should mix
these low clouds out 15z-17z this morning.
VFR is generally expected all areas today and tonight.
A strong Pacific cold front will sweep through western and
north central Nebraska today.
Isolated thunderstorms are forecast this afternoon, generally
along and east of a line from Oneill to Broken Bow to Stockville.
This evening, the same is forecast along and south of Interstate
80.
Note that the forecast this afternoon is somewhat speculative as
none of the models are showing much development. Tonight, the
model suggest storms will move in from Wyoming and Northeast
Colorado.

For both taf sites...looking for VFR conditions at this time.
Frontal boundary set to push south thru the region during the
forecast period. Will see scattered mid and high clouds give way
to BKN050 aft 00z Friday. Big question is timing of front and
chance for convection to fire up. Best chances will occur KGLD
and south...but low confidence in timing so will only have VCTS in
for now and await initiation of convection to better time any
thunder. Winds NNE 15-30kts...w/ a period for both sites around
10kts between 03z-13z Friday.

Southerly winds at around 15 knots can be expected today across
western Kansas ahead of a surface cold front which will be
approaching Hays and Garden City by early evening. As this cold
front continues to move south overnight these southerly winds will
shift to the north. In addition to the shifting winds with this
cold front there will also be a chance for some scattered
thunderstorms late today and early tonight. As for timing of
convection near the terminals today will follow a combination of
the HRRR, ARW, and NMM. High cloud bases are expected with these
storms based on the 12z models soundings so VFR conditions are
likely. The exception will be brief periods of reduced visibility
due to the heavy rainfall from some of these storms. Also strong
gusty winds will be possible from these thunderstorms late today
and early tonight.

18Z Issuance...VFR conditions will lower this evening as storms go
through the area. Storms are expected to progress from northwest
to southeast between 23Z and 06Z. Ceilings will recover a bit and
winds will calm slightly after storms pass before a cold front
pushes through and causes winds to ramp up with gusts up to 40kts
and ceilings to drop to possibly MVFR or lower. Confidence on
ceiling heights is kind of low, but could go lower than tafs.

18Z TAF CYCLE
VFR conditions will prevail through midnight. Light NW breezes will
develop early this afternoon across much of central and western NM. A
few storms are possible across NE and EC NM once again, though storm
coverage is expected to be less than yesterday. Any storm that
develops will be capable of producing strong and erratic downburst
winds and hail. A back door cold front is still set to slide down the
plains after 06z. Strong northerly winds with gusts near 30 or 35kt
will be possible behind the front. MVFR, or possibly IFR, cigs are
expected to develop early Friday morning behind the front across
portions of the NE and EC plains. These low clouds may persist for
much of the day in some areas. Later Friday afternoon, expect the
front to push through the gaps of the central mountain chain,
resulting in gusty easterly winds at KABQ and KSAF.
