Southwest winds will turn briefly west before a northerly push
around noon. Expect gusts to around 20 mph. Winds will decrease
again in the afternoon, turn southwest to drainage this evening,
and remain southwesterly through Thursday morning. There is
currently some cloudiness over and around Lincoln county
associated with the upper level low to our south. Those clouds
should stay south and east of the terminals today and move away
with the low this evening. Expect VFR conditions at all terminals
through the cycle.

Some of the guidance is showing the possibility for greater
coverage of low stratus and or fog tonight. Confidence was not
high enough at this point to add it to any of the tafs. Otherwise
light terrain-driven winds and some passing high clouds expected
today.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday afternoon)
Issued at 1117 AM MDT Wed Oct 28 2020
Some of the guidance is showing the possibility for greater
coverage of low stratus and or fog tonight. Confidence was not
high enough at this point to add it to any of the tafs. Otherwise
light terrain-driven winds and some passing high clouds expected
today.

Expect VFR for all the terminals throughout the period.  Some lower visibilities
and patchy low clouds are possible starting around 06z and lasting until around
14z for KAIA, KBFF and KCDR.  These should not be total obscurations.  Some gusty
winds to near 20-25 knots are possible near the end of the TAF period for the WY

Primary concern for the next 24 hours will be the potential for
MVFR CIGs/visibilities area wide overnight into Tuesday morning.
A cold front will slide through the area this evening and bring
with it lowered CIGs and the potential for some fog. Have included
MVFR mention at both LBF and VTN overnight, though some IFR
visby/CIGs appears possible. Will leave out any IFR mention for
now due to low confidence, though future inclusion remains
possible.

VFR expected through this evening at both KGLD and KMCK. High
clouds will continue to stream over the area from the south.
Surface winds will increase a bit from the north through the
afternoon to 10-kts. Tonight, might see some patchy fog develop
after midnight through Thursday morning. However, downslope wind
component and high clouds both working against fog development,
and skeptical that it will actually develop.

A cold rain will affect all but the HYS terminal through this TAF
period. Expect flight category to fall to IFR during the height of
the rain event this evening, probably for 2-4 hours with MVFR
flight category for a few hours before and after. By daybreak
Thursday, there is expected to be a resumption to VFR flight
category as the storm pulls away, although north winds will still
be fairly strong at 15 to 25 knots.

18Z TAF CYCLE
Blizzard conditions were reported across parts of northeast NM this
morning with significant impacts from SN and low vsby. Model trends
show some improvement this afternoon from west to east with change to
RA/SN and clearing after sunset along the central mt chain tonight.
A third round of RA/SN is expected along the TX border from near
KCAO south to KTCC this evening. Areas of FZFG may develop within
central and western NM overnight however confidence is low at this
time. Thursday looks to be much quieter as this system moves well to
the east.
