.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 830 PM MST Sun Feb 16 2020
VFR conditions will continue through the day Monday. Winds at DEN
may continue to change direction through the evening hours but
should eventually trend toward drainage around midnight. A
Longmont anticyclone will develop tomorrow with northwest winds
developing during the late morning hours. This anticyclone may
turn winds more northeasterly by the afternoon. Ceilings will
lower tomorrow night but are expected to stay in VFR thresholds.

Overall, not many aviation adjustments required with generally

sites into Monday afternoon, with increasing precipitation chances
and lowering clouds then anticipated over primarily the KCOS and
KPUB TAF locations around/after sunset Monday.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 1030 PM MST Sun Feb 16 2020
Snow continues for KGUC, KSBS, and KHDN at this hour and will
likely continue through the early morning hours. Ceilings at KASE,
KEGE and KRIL remain around 8K feet but expect them to drop in a
few hours as snow moves in again. By 12Z, snow will become more
light in nature allowing visibilities and ceilings to lift. By
18Z, conditions will improve greatly across the forecast area as
snow comes to an end and broken ceilings move in. Another quick
shot of snow may move in towards the end of the TAF period but
should only affect KHDN though there`s an offchance that KEGE and
KASE may see some lower ceilings as well.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 1030 PM MST Sun Feb 16 2020
Snow continues for KGUC, KSBS, and KHDN at this hour and will
likely continue through the early morning hours. Ceilings at KASE,
KEGE and KRIL remain around 8K feet but expect them to drop in a
few hours as snow moves in again. By 12Z, snow will become more
light in nature allowing visibilities and ceilings to lift. By
18Z, conditions will improve greatly across the forecast area as
snow comes to an end and broken ceilings move in. Another quick
shot of snow may move in towards the end of the TAF period but
should only affect KHDN though there`s an offchance that KEGE and
KASE may see some lower ceilings as well.

.AVIATION...A few showers will continue over or in the vicinity of
the SLC terminal through around 07-08z tonight. These showers will
have the potential to bring brief periods of MVFR conditions,
especially in the heavier showers and as rain changes over to snow.
Otherwise, prevailing CIGS below 7kft will remain in place through
late tonight, but should scatter out or lift by 12z. Winds are
expected to remain out of the north through the daytime hours
tomorrow, with a 30 percent chance of southerly or light and
variable winds between 14-18z.

.AVIATION...For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday
East of the Divide...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL Terminals
Snow continues to end from northwest to southeast near KCOD and
KWRL, with VCSH at the start of the TAF period. Light snow will
remain possible at KCPR through 10Z. VCSH should be ending by this
time at the other terminals. Winds will remain light through the
rest of the TAF period, as clouds begin to break by daybreak.
After 18Z Monday, scattered snow showers from weak afternoon
convection will likely occur across the northern half of the
state. However, these showers are not expected to impact any
terminals.
West of the Divide...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS Terminals
Snow will continue to end across the area, staying confined over
the higher elevations. VFR conditions are expected through 12Z,
with VCSH and marginal MVFR conditions possible at
times. Snow will be over by 12Z, with VFR conditions and
scattering clouds. Expect mountain obscurations for much of the
period. Gusty winds will impact KRKS through 22Z Monday, otherwise
winds will be light at the other terminals. After 18Z Monday,
scattered snow showers will redevelop over the far west and impact
KJAC through 02Z Tuesday.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday evening)
Issued at 1013 PM MST Sun Feb 16 2020...CORRECTED
Mainly VFR now expected over the se Wy terminals with a drying
airmass but some MVFR vsbys at times at KRWL due to blowing snow.
Still some possibility for periods of MVFR cigs and vsbys at mainly
KCDR and KAIA later tonight into Monday morning with snow showers
passing by.  Sfc cold front will create gusty westerly winds behind
it as it moves across by Monday morning, strongest from KRWL to
KCYS where gusts over 30 kts are expected.

For KLBF...limited aviation concerns are expected as ceilings remain
above 5000 feet through Monday morning. Ceilings will eventually
lower Monday afternoon in advance of the next weather system
arriving Monday night.
For KVTN...aviation concerns will be low through the evening. Some
light snow is possible at the terminal after 06Z lasting through
much of Monday morning. Snow will gradually diminish Monday
afternoon; however, ceilings will remain below 3000 feet through the
remainder of the TAF period.

VFR conditions are expected through the 06Z TAF period at MCK and
GLD. Light and variable winds will increase and become gusty out
of the northwest between 14-16Z following the passage of a cold
front. There may be a period of LLWS at GLD between 11-15Z prior
to the boundary layer mixing out. Gusty northwest winds could be
as high as 35kts at GLD around mid day. Speeds will drop off
around sunset with light north winds expected Monday night.
Looking ahead to the period after 06Z, there will be a chance of
light snow after 06Z at GLD while MCK could see just a flurry
early Tuesday morning along with a possibility of conditions going
below VFR.

Moist upslope southeasterly flow will result in rapid dense fog
expansion from KDDC (already dense as of 6z) through KGCK and
KLBL through 08z and then persist through 13-14z. A front will
pass across the TAF sites between 14-15z, quickly clearing the
fog and yielding VFR conditions for the rest of the period.

.AVIATION...
For the 06Z TAFs, areas of fog and low clouds are forecast to
develop once again across eastern and northeast parts of the OK
and TX Panhandles late tonight into Monday morning, dissipating
thereafter. It now appears the low clouds and fog will likely
affect KGUY but remain well east of KDHT and KAMA. Trends will
continue to be monitored closely the rest of tonight. A brief
period of LLWS is also foreseen at KAMA until around 09Z. Finally,
a cold front will move across the TAF sites late tonight through
mid morning Monday with north and eventually northeast winds in
its wake.
