.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 358 AM MDT Thu Sep 19 2019
Southwest winds will increase this afternoon and continue through
early evening ahead of an approaching trough. Surface winds at
many TAF sites could gust in the 20 to 30 kt range with some
higher gusts at times to 35 kts. Some mid level clouds will form
as well as some isolated to scattered storms after 21Z over mainly
western Colorado high terrain. Mountain wave turbulence and wind
shear is possible due to the stronger upper level winds mixing to
the surface.

Shallow northerly flow across the SLC terminal this morning is
still expected to be erased by southerly winds aloft mixing down
to the surface during the 17-21z window. This said, there is a 20%
chance that southerly winds aloft do not surface. The winds will
then shift back to the west northwest between 21-22Z becoming
moderately gusty mid/late afternoon. Cigs will lower after about
04-06Z with showers developing around midnight.

Expect a gusty south to southwest wind this afternoon and early
evening. Wind gusts of 25 to 35 kts will be common with KRKS
possibly seeing gusts to 40 kts. Isolated showers and thunderstorms
will begin moving into the west by 0Z this afternoon and continue
through the period. Activity will increase and spread east of the
Divide early Friday morning. Mainly VFR conditions will occur at
the terminal sites through the period, but local MVFR conditions
may occur in NW WY with heavier shower activity.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 546 AM MDT Thu Sep 19 2019
Still expecting VFR for the near-term periods of the aviation
forecast, although gusty winds 25to35kts Laramie westward could
be an issue for crosswind landings by the afternoon, and possibly
as far east as Cheyenne. The latest higher resolution convection
allowing models are showing showers and thunderstorms developing
along the Laramie Range in the late afternoon hours moving
northeastward across I-25 by 1800 MDT today. Coverage appears
fairly isolated and since confidence of affecting Cheyenne or
points eastward appears on the lower side, won`t include a
mention in the TAFs for now. As we get into the afternoon, the
dayshift forecasters can adjust based on better data.

Latest radar display shows widely isolated thunderstorms moving
northeast across west central NEB with very infrequent lightning
occurring. This activity should taper off in the next hour or two.
Otherwise, MVFR ceilings exist across parts of the central and
eastern Sandhills. Ceilings will improve early today across the
Sandhills with fair conditions prevailing much of the day. Late
today there is potential for isolated strong-severe storms across
southwest NEB with storms anticipated to move northeastward with
storms then possible across the southern Sandhills and central NEB
this evening/early tonight. Confidence is low for storms affecting
KLBF terminal at this time thus no mention in the TAF. Threat for
storms will then diminish late this evening. LLWS conditions will
then be a concern tonight attributable to a southerly low-level
jet. For LLWS, height of the top of the wind shear layer is
forecast about 1.5 kft with speeds at the top about 40-50 kts.

Issued at 539 AM MDT Thu Sep 19 2019
Vfr conditions are expected through the period at this time. For
Kgld, 6SM BR and light and variable winds are expected through
15z. At 15z south winds will begin at 7 knots and then increase to
near 10 knots around 19z. At 21z, thunderstorms will be near the
site so inserted vcts. Also south winds will increase to nears 19
knots with gusts to near 27 knots. At 03z the threat for
thunderstorms is down, and the wind stops gusts but remains near
18 knots. At 08z the south winds remain near 14 knots with gusts
to 22 knots.
For Kmck, light and variable winds are expected until 20z. At 20z
the winds will be southeast at 13 knots with gusts to near 20
knots. At 00z, thunderstorms will be near the site so have put in
vcts. Until 05z the southeast winds will be near 17 knots with
gusts to around 25 knots. At 05z, there will be no more
thunderstorms as the southeast winds decrease to near 11 knots
with low level wind shear in place. At 08z, the low level wind
shear ends as the winds shift toward the south at 9 knots.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon)
Issued at 1035 AM CDT Thu Sep 19 2019
South winds of 18-28 kts are expected at the airports this
afternoon. After 21z, high confidence that scattered thunderstorms
will develop, near LBL first, and then spreading NE to potentially
impact GCK/DDC through 02z Fri. Some direct thunderstorm impacts
are possible at these terminals, with wind gusts to 45 kts.
Convection is expected to remain west of HYS before dissipating.
Midlevel clouds will increase overnight with light SE winds.
Scattered showers are expected to develop 12-15z Fri, especially
along and west of a GCK-LBL line, with lowering cigs, perhaps down
to MVFR.

.AVIATION...12z TAF Cycle...
Thunderstorms are expected to be scattered to numerous in coverage
this afternoon into the evening. All three terminals will probably
have a few storms at least in close proximity, so have included
VCTS/Tempos to identify best timing based on current information.
Additional storms may form overnight. This will need to be
refined in upcoming forecasts. Some MVFR cigs/vsbys will be
possible with any storm activity, along with heavy rain, hail and
strong outflow winds. Otherwise, winds will generally be out of
the south at 10 to 15 knots.
