.AVIATION /00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday/...
Issued at 538 PM MDT Tue Apr 23 2024
VFR through the TAF period with generally SCT-BKN mid-level
clouds. Main challenge will be winds in the near-term period, with
a Denver Cyclone located between APA and BKF. This has slowly
drifted north-northeast over the past couple of hours, with gusty
north/northwest winds on the backside of the circulation (APA),
with some sort of east or northeast at DEN. A few weak showers on
radar have also been noted, which have spit out just enough
outflow to occasionally shift winds to the north at DEN/BJC.
Expect these weak showers and the cyclone itself to weaken over
the next few hours with drainage flow returning after sunset
tonight. Weak flow is expected tomorrow, maintaining some sort of
southeast component through most of the day. A couple of high-
based showers are possible again tomorrow, but coverage at this
point looks sparse enough that VCSH wasn`t included.

VFR conditions anticipated across the forecast area over the next 24
hrs, including the three main TAF sites of KCOS, KPUB and KALS.
Scattered to broken mid and high level cloudiness over the higher
terrain and Palmer Divide expected through mid-evening, then
clearing skies overnight. Surface winds across the eastern plains
will be predominantly out of the E-SE through the forecast period,
though stronger sfc flow at 10-15G25kt will be possible through 02z,
affecting KCOS and KPUB. Isolated shower activity forecast over the
higher terrain this afternoon, which could encroach on KCOS, so made
a mention of VCSH there through 03z.
SW winds gusting up to 25 kts expected across the San Luis Valley
until around 02z, affecting KALS.

Expect VFR conditions across the region through the TAF period.
Currently widely scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms
are across areas north of the I-70 corridor and more isolated
showers through the central and southern Colorado mountains.
These showers may produce outflow gusts in excess of 35 kts.
Look for the showers to diminish through the evening, ending by
06Z. Winds will generally be light and terrain driven overnight
into the morning, becoming gusty west to southwesterly after
18Z. Isolated showers are possible again over the Uinta
Mountains and Park Range after 18Z.

Expect VFR conditions across the region through the TAF period.
Currently widely scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms
are across areas north of the I-70 corridor and more isolated
showers through the central and southern Colorado mountains.
These showers may produce outflow gusts in excess of 35 kts.
Look for the showers to diminish through the evening, ending by
06Z. Winds will generally be light and terrain driven overnight
into the morning, becoming gusty west to southwesterly after
18Z. Isolated showers are possible again over the Uinta
Mountains and Park Range after 18Z.

VFR conditions through the period with mainly light winds. A weak
shortwave within the westerly flow will bring some isolated showers
to southwestern Wyoming Tuesday afternoon. KRKS is the only station
that could see potential impacts with showers, but they still look
to stay to the south. Only going with VCSH at this time. As the
activity moves to the it will bring increased high clouds will
across the area.
Please see the Aviation Weather Center and/or CWSU ZDV and ZLC for

the evening hours. A second band of showers is expected to
develop in western Nebraska. Included VCSH for most western
Nebraska sites and all Wyoming sites. Winds expected to increase
tomorrow morning through the remaining TAF period.

Northeast winds will continue to decrease to less than 10 knots
with winds eventually becoming light easterly through the night.
Sky cover will remain mostly clear, but by daybreak Wednesday,
we will see low level moisture return north and subsequent
stratus cloud development through the day. For this TAF cycle,
we will carry MVFR stratus at GCK and LBL with lower probability
of MVFR at DDC (around 30% chance). The surface wind will
continue to veer to the southeast and increase to around 12 to
15 knots.

For the 00Z TAFs, expect low level moisture to increase tonight
across the area courtesy of low level easterly upslope flow. This
translates to the development of MVFR cigs at KDHT and KAMA towards
sunrise Wednesday. These MVFR cigs are forecast to persist through
Wednesday morning before lifting to the VFR category Wednesday
afternoon. KGUY should remain in the VFR category through late
Wednesday afternoon at this time. Some patchy drizzle may develop
Wednesday morning, but low confidence exists as to if, where, and
when any drizzle might develop so have opted to omit from this
forecast cycle.

(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 529 PM MDT Tue Apr 23 2024
A cold front continues to slowly progress south and westward
through eastern NM this afternoon, bringing a northeasterly to
easterly wind shift with it. Gusty easterly winds of 15 to 25kts
are being observed behind the front from KRTN to KCAO and KTCC.
Meanwhile gusty southwesterly winds remain ahead of the front
through central and western NM. Most areas are skc with the
exception of sct-bkn coverage along and near the frontal boundary
generally 120 to 140. This frontal boundary will progress through
the gaps of the Sandia/Manzano Mountains into KSAF this evening.
Have bumped up the wind potential there overnight as a result.
Hi-Res model guidance supports conceptual thinking that this
shallow airmass behind the front will ooze around the northern
edge of the Sandia/Manzano Mountains and squeak through the
Tijeras Canyon. Wind directions at KABQ will likely be tricky
overnight with a northerly wind coming down from Placitas
competing against an easterly wind through Tijeras Canyon. The
saving grace here will be wind speeds are not expected to be too
strong at KABQ. A similar debacle with wind directions will be
present at KROW overnight with the frontal passage there weakening
and losing its punch. Otherwise, high moisture and upslope flow
will allow for some low clouds and fog potential overnight along
the east slopes of the central mountain chain, and have placed a
bkn015 at KLVS as a result.
