the Denver area from the north and northwest through the night.
Winds should remain light. Some low cloud decks may hang around

expected tomorrow, but some gusty northwest winds may develop
during the late morning and afternoon hours.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night)
Issued at 1054 PM MST Tue Feb 19 2019
Scattered light snow showers continued here and there across the
region with light snow impacting KVEL, KGJT, KASE and KHDN at 05Z.
Showers have resulted in IFR visibility and MVFR ceilings at these
locations, but do not expect this activity to linger past 08Z.
Thereafter, VFR conditions will be the norm for the area though
CIGS are likely to dip below ILS breakpoints for prolonged periods
at KRIL, KEGE and KASE over the next 24 hours. The next storm to
impact the area will arrive Wednesday afternoon with snow likely
to begin impacting KCNY, KTEX and KDRO by 00Z/Thursday.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night)
Issued at 1028 PM MST Tue Feb 19 2019
A few pockets of MVFR to IFR/LIFR ceilings and visibilities during
the evening/overnight hours, especially in the Platte River Valley
and adjacent areas potentially affecting KBFF/KAIA. Otherwise, VFR
generally prevails with cloud bases around 5k-10k feet AGL. We may
also still see some low clouds around KRWL over the next few hours
with periodic MVFR conditions possible. Not much change during the
day on Wednesday, but any areas of IFR/LIFR should improve as wind
speeds increase by late morning. There is potential for flurries &
light snow showers at any given terminal on Wednesday.

Isolated snow showers will continue mainly over the northern,
central and western mountains through late tonight. Locations along
and west of the central mountain chain that have fresh snow cover
will be at risk for IFR conditions in patchy fog and low clouds
late tonight into early Wednesday morning. At this time the area
from Gallup to Farmington, Chama and Cuba look favored. Downslope
flow is forecast to become gusty for the remainder of tonight and
Wednesday across northeast and east central areas due to a lee
trough that will develop. A broad upper level low pressure system
digging over the Great Basin late Wednesday will begin spreading snow
showers over the Four Corners region (including FMN) after sunset.
