.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 318 AM MST Thu Jan 17 2019
VFR conditions expected through tonight. South/southwest winds
around 10 knots this morning may turn a bit more southeasterly
16Z-19Z, but also can`t rule out a more westerly wind with gusts
around 20 knots depending on amount of mixing today. Most likely
this would occur at KBJC and not KDEN or KAPA. Cold front is
expected to arrive by 15Z Friday with north winds increasing to
15G25 knots. Ceilings expected to gradually lower to around 5000
feet and likely lower than that by Friday afternoon as snow
showers develop in the area.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 433 AM MST Thu Jan 17 2019
Fog across the San Luis valley will persist through the morning
though visibilities could vary between LIFR and and MVFR at times.
Fog should thin and dissipate by 18z though an IFR cig is likely to
persist through much of the day.  As the next storm system
approaches expect increasing high cloudiness with some patchy fog
redeveloping during the evening across the San Luis Valley.  As
winds aloft increase, this should be patchier in coverage with snow
showers spreading across the valley at times after 06z.  Cigs could
drop into the IFR range with -SHSN through Friday morning.
KCOS and KPUB will remain VFR with gusty southwest winds spreading
into the terminals in the afternoon.  Gusts to around 20 kts will be
possible at times.  Winds will decrease this evening, though could
remain westerly around 10 kts at KPUB through the night.  Expect
variable high cloudiness at both KCOS and KPUB over the next 24
hours with conditions remaining VFR.  -KT

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 525 AM MST Thu Jan 17 2019
Low stratus and fog will keep KGJT, KMTJ, KGUC and KCNY at
IFR/LIFR levels through midmorning. Meanwhile, strong winds aloft
will result in LLWS over KHDN through much of the day. LLWS
conditions will also impact KCNY, KASE, KGUC and KTEX later in the
day and overnight. As the next system comes in expect all TAF
sites to experience MVFR and/or periods of IFR/LIFR conditions in
rain, snow and fog beginning late this afternoon in eastern Utah,
then spreading across western Colorado this evening.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 525 AM MST Thu Jan 17 2019
Low stratus and fog will keep KGJT, KMTJ, KGUC and KCNY at
IFR/LIFR levels through midmorning. Meanwhile, strong winds aloft
will result in LLWS over KHDN through much of the day. LLWS
conditions will also impact KCNY, KASE, KGUC and KTEX later in the
day and overnight. As the next system comes in expect all TAF
sites to experience MVFR and/or periods of IFR/LIFR conditions in
rain, snow and fog beginning late this afternoon in eastern Utah,
then spreading across western Colorado this evening.

.AVIATION...For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday
West of the Continental Divide...(KJAC, KRKS, KPNA, KBPI)
Will continue with MVFR to borderline IFR conditions at KJAC
through the forecast period, as -SN should continue through much
of the period. Expect that MVFR ceilings and visibilities should
continue at KPNA until around 16Z Thursday, with borderline MVFR
ceilings expected there through the end of the forecast period. At
KRKS, MVFR/borderline IFR ceilings/visibilities are expected
until around 07Z Thursday, with VFR conditions expected
thereafter. MVFR/IFR ceilings and MVFR visibilities are also
expected at KBPI through the majority of the forecast period.
East of the Continental Divide...(KCPR, KCOD, KRIW, KLND, KWRL)
Will continue with VFR conditions at the TAF sites east of the
Continental Divide through the forecast period. Have made a slight
upward adjustment involving winds at KCPR after 19Z Thursday.

Cheyenne Aviation Discussion
Issued at 1339 UTC Thursday, January 17, 2019

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 454 AM MST Thu Jan 17 2019
Increasing and lowering ceilings as the next system moves into the
region. These high clouds will likely limit the redevelopment of
dense fog across the northern NE Panhandle. Winds gusting to 35
kts expected across the SE Wyoming sites today, with wind shear an
issue as winds increase to about 50 kts below 20000 ft. Turbulence
is expected near the mountain ranges as well. Rain and snow
showers will spread west to east today, beginning near KRWL around
17/20Z, and reaching the Panhandle after 18/09Z. For now,
conditions are VFR, but as clouds lower, MVFR expected, even IFR
in the heavier snow showers.

.AVIATION...
12Z TAF CYCLE
VFR conditions are in place across most of northern and central New
Mexico this morning. A few patches of mist may develop in west
central to northwestern areas of the state near dawn, and remnant
mountain obscurations will slowly dwindle from the northern peaks
through the morning. Light to moderate breezes are expected this
afternoon with mid to high clouds. Deteriorating conditions will then
take shape in northwestern to north central New Mexico this evening
and overnight. Showers will increase, turning to more persistent rain
and snow with MVFR to LIFR conditions likely taking hold after
18/0600UTC. Very strong winds will then take shape into the day
Friday.
