.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday)
Issued at 205 PM MDT Wed Apr 25 2018
East of the Divide...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL Routes
VFR conditions to prevail for most terminal sites, except KCOD and
perhaps KWRL, until after 06Z. KCOD followed by KWRL, will see the
effects of a passing cold front with a shift in the winds to the
north to northwest this evening while CIGs begin to drop to low
VFR/MVFR by/after 02Z this evening. The other terminal sites will
follow suit sometime after 06Z tonight. As this system will be a
quick hitter, conditions should begin to improve after 06Z - first
across northern WY, heading south to central/southern WY 11Z-15Z.
Mountains of the area will also be occasionally obscured through
around 15Z. Ahead of the front early this evening, winds may gust
out of the west G20-30kt.

West of the Divide...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS Routes
VFR conditions to prevail west of the Divide through the forecast
period. Some gusty west to northwest winds (G20-30kt) expected early
this evening - mainly along/east of a KPNA-KBPI_KRKS line.

Cheyenne Aviation Discussion
Issued at 2337 UTC Wednesday, April 25, 2018

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through Thursday morning)
VFR conditions will prevail through tonight with light winds ahead
of a cold front.  The cold front will move across the area beginning
late this evening, and across the I-80 corridor around midnight with
increasing clouds and gusty northerly winds behind it. CIGS may
lower to near MVFR over the area late tonight and into Thursday
morning. Any shower activity is expected to be light with only minor
changes in VIS.

VFR conditions forecast for the TAFs. Main issue will be the windy
conditions behind the cold front. The strongest winds will be in
the morning then gradually decline in the afternoon. There could
be some very light rainfall along the front and possibly MVFR
ceiling.

Terminals will maintain VFR conditions through the TAF period.
The main aviation impact for this period will be two wind shifts
as one system moves out of Southwest Kansas early this evening and
another begins to move in late-morning. Between 0 and 1Z, the
northerly wind will will become less than 10 knots, decreasing
to light and variable by sunrise. However, wind will shift to
become southerly between 2 and 4Z as high pressure moves
southeast. Wind will shift back northerly early afternoon tomorrow
and increase to 15-25 knots with gusts to 35 as the pressure
gradient increases due to the next area of high pressure moving in
from Montana/Wyoming. Ceilings will begin to decrease early
afternoon as well, but remain in VFR conditions. A few light
showers could be possible at KDDC and KHYS toward the end of the
TAF period, however have left out of the TAF for now.
