.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
Issued at 840 PM MDT Wed Apr 21 2021
Snow showers will be tapering off through 04Z and should be mostly
over, or just flurries by 06Z. Concern will then shift toward
patchy but possibly dense fog (1/4SM FG) toward early Thursday
morning. That potential exists due to narrow T/Td spreads and a
weak Denver cyclone expected to develop. That would favor light
W/NW winds redeveloping at KDEN after 12Z with possible fog
development at that time. We`ll opt for a TEMPO 1/2SM FG group
for now between 13Z and 15Z. Otherwise, VFR conditions may
redevelop either side of that with a light downslope
south/southeast flow 06Z-12Z, and then daytime heating and mixing
after 16Z-17Z Thursday.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
Issued at 601 PM MDT Wed Apr 21 2021
Clouds will decrease for a short period across eastern Utah this
evening before beginning to increase later in the evening. The
system driving the cloud mass is expected to drift overhead late
tonight through Thursday. Strengthening winds aloft will result in
LLWS at both KTEX and KASE late tonight. In addition, there will
be a lowering of cloud bases and some shower activity likely at
the mountain TAF sites KTEX and KASE during the afternoon. This
activity may include thunder in the vicinity as the airmass
becomes increasingly unstable. While showers are possible at KRIL
and KEGE during the afternoon, it`s more likely that ceilings will
drop below ILS breakpoints and this includes KASE as well. Clouds
aside, the remainder of the TAF sites can expect VFR conditions
through the next 24 hours.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
Issued at 601 PM MDT Wed Apr 21 2021
Clouds will decrease for a short period across eastern Utah this
evening before beginning to increase later in the evening. The
system driving the cloud mass is expected to drift overhead late
tonight through Thursday. Strengthening winds aloft will result in
LLWS at both KTEX and KASE late tonight. In addition, there will
be a lowering of cloud bases and some shower activity likely at
the mountain TAF sites KTEX and KASE during the afternoon. This
activity may include thunder in the vicinity as the airmass
becomes increasingly unstable. While showers are possible at KRIL
and KEGE during the afternoon, it`s more likely that ceilings will
drop below ILS breakpoints and this includes KASE as well. Clouds
aside, the remainder of the TAF sites can expect VFR conditions
through the next 24 hours.

to 35-45 kts will gradually decrease in most locations this evening,
but remain locally gusty northeast of the higher terrain into the
overnight hours. Rain showers will develop Thursday afternoon along
and north of a KPRC-KINW-Four Corners line. A thunderstorm cannot
be ruled out. Localized MVFR conditions will be possible in the
heavier showers. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF

.AVIATION...For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday
Expect VFR conditions for the entire period at all terminals.
Some VCSH conditions are possible for the beginning of the period
at KRKS, as a thick band of BKN-OVC FL100 clouds move over
southern WY. These clouds are expected to clear out between 12Z
and 14Z. Additional clouds will move across northern and western
portions from the northwest after 18Z.

Issued at 631 PM CDT Wed Apr 21 2021
In the first 12 hours of the TAF period, VFR conditions are expected
with no VIS or CIG concerns. Clouds will build in overnight and
bring a band of light snow starting in southwest Nebraska and
heading northeastward. As the day progresses, expect a transition to
rain-snow mix, or even rain. Any snow accumulations should be under
an inch, but CIGs will lower in the morning and into the afternoon
creating MVFR conditions for northern Nebraska terminals.
Confidence remains low in lower cigs, as they may locally drop
into IFR conditions, but keep an eye on later forecasts for
updates as it nears. Additionally, as the precipitation heads in,
so does some stronger winds, up to about 20kts, and gusts of up to
30kts at the sfc. Winds will be generally from the south

VFR conditions are anticipated to prevail through the TAF period,
with ceilings no lower than 4-6 KFT AGL. Winds will remain light/
variable this evening, shifting to the ESE-SE and increasing to
10-15 knots after midnight (06-09Z), becoming SSE-SE at 15-20
knots by sunrise Thu morning.. as the MSLP gradient begins to
tighten on the eastern periphery of a deepening lee cyclone in
Colorado. S-SSE winds will noticeably strengthen within a few
hours after sunrise.. increasing to 20-30 knots with gusts up to
40 knots by 13-16Z. Strong S-SSE winds will persist through the
day at the MCK terminal. At the GLD terminal, winds are
anticipated to shift to the SSW-SW and decrease to 15-25 knots
during the afternoon (18-21Z).. as the aforementioned lee cyclone
progresses east to the CO/KS border and the MSLP gradient

A surface trough will strengthen in the lee of the Rockies through
the period. This will result in winds becoming southerly and
increasing to 22-25 kts by 16-18z. Moisture will be increasing
ahead of an upper level disturbance. Mid cloud AOA070 can be
expected through 16z, with CIGS lowering to BKN035-BKN040 at KHYS

For the 00Z TAFs, a brief period of MVFR cigs is anticipated at
the terminal sites Thursday morning. South winds are forecast to
increase and become gusty by mid morning Thursday as the pressure
gradient tightens in response to a deepening surface trof of low

Albuquerque Aviation Discussion
Issued at 0219 UTC Thursday, April 22, 2021

In many places the flow will remain gusty through mid evening due to
strengthening flow aloft and a tight surface pressure gradient
associated with a surface high pressure system east of New Mexico.
The potential exists for gusts to 35 kt at KABX during the early
evening, but increasing cloud cover should reduce atmospheric mixing
enough to keep wind gusts under that important threshold for Sunport
ground operators. Late tonight, patches of low clouds may produce
MVFR conditions east of the central mountain chain, mainly from
around Raton southward to around Dunken. Breezy to windy conditions
will return on Thursday with the strongest gusts approaching 40 kt
along and just east of the central mountain chain, and also across
portions of the northeast and east central plains.
