.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 418 AM MDT Mon Sep 24 2018
Front has just pushed through KDEN and northerly winds are gusting
up to 25 knots behind it. Those winds should weaken rather
quickly early this morning and also shift more easterly and
southeasterly as anticyclonic flow builds in with surface high
pressure off to the northeast. It`s hard to determine how much
smoke is behind this front but so far upstream visibilities are
holding at 10SM, but there could still be visual landing impacts
with limited slant range visibility through at least 18Z. There is
a 20-30% chance of high based showers and thunderstorms this
afternoon with gusty outflow winds up to 30 knots, so VCSH looks
good for now in the 19Z-23Z window.
For tonight, another front comes in and this one will be stronger
so shortly after 06Z we should see north winds increase to 15-20
knots with gusts 25-30 knots for a couple hours. We do expect
enough upslope component and cooling for a layer of stratus to
develop in the 1000-2000 ft range toward 09Z-12Z.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning)
Issued at 407 AM MDT Mon Sep 24 2018
Northerly component winds are anticipated at KCOS and KPUB this
morning as northerly surface surge crosses into far northeastern
New Mexico by noon today. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will
be possible near the KCOS taf site and possibly the KPUB taf site
from this afternoon into early evening, although for now will
depict VFR conditions through tonight for the KALS, KCOS and KPUB
taf sites due to the projected sparse nature of the predicted
precipitation. Then, next northerly surge is expected to be moving
into northern portions of EL Paso county by 12Z Tuesday.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning)
Issued at 632 AM MDT Mon Sep 24 2018
A Pacific trough will sweep across the area during the day
generating scattered showers and embedded thunderstorms. This
activity is unlikely to generate rainfall rates high enough to
reduce visibity below VFR, nor are ceilings likely to dip below
ILS break points. Gusty west to northwest winds will impact TAF
sites through 03Z/Tues and outflow winds from showers or
thunderstorms may bring gusts of 30 to 40 MPH. Look for clearing
skies overnight with showers diminishing by midnight while winds
decrease.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning)
Issued at 632 AM MDT Mon Sep 24 2018
A Pacific trough will sweep across the area during the day
generating scattered showers and embedded thunderstorms. This
activity is unlikely to generate rainfall rates high enough to
reduce visibity below VFR, nor are ceilings likely to dip below
ILS break points. Gusty west to northwest winds will impact TAF
sites through 03Z/Tues and outflow winds from showers or
thunderstorms may bring gusts of 30 to 40 MPH. Look for clearing
skies overnight with showers diminishing by midnight while winds
decrease.

Lingering showers south of a KRKS-KCPR line should push east of
the area by 12z. Local MVFR ceilings may linger along the east
slopes of the Absaroka Mountains, vcnty KCOD, and vcnty KCPR until
13z.
Smoke from the Roosevelt Fire near Bondurant is expected to send its
main plume of smoke over KPNA, across the southern Wind River Range,
vicinity and south of a KLND-KCPR line through the afternoon and
early evening.  MVFR restrictions to visibility are expected mainly
vicinity KPNA-30SM south KLND.
A cold front will spread scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms south, along and east of the Continental Divide Monday
afternoon and evening.  Areas of MVFR, local IFR ceilings may
develop behind the front 00z-08z Tuesday.
West to northwest wind 10-20kt gusts near 30kts will prevail west of
the Divide Monday afternoon, with these winds diminishing at
sunset.

Latest radar scan shows a band of precipitation from the NE
Panhandle into southern Albany County. This should dissipate over
the next couple of hours ahead of another round of showers this
afternoon into the evening. IFR conditions from low ceilings
expected to improve over the next hour or so. Concerns in the
afternoon for again smoke from area fires for KCYS and KLAR with a
return of low ceilings around 06z timeframe.

Behind an advancing cold front moving through western Nebraska,
IFR ceilings extended across areas north of a SNY through TIF and
ANW line. Expect these ceilings to lift to VFR by 15z at KVTN,
while MVFR ceiings may persist further southeast to include BBW
and ONL until 18z. At KLBF, included a tempo for MVFR ceilings
near BKN012 until 14z, although ceilings may become prevailing and
last until 18z. Northerly winds this morning may gust up to 20kt
at times, then become northeast and diminish to 5 to 10kt this
afternoon. VCSH across the northwest Sandhills including KVTN this
morning, then better coverage of rain showers across western
Nebraska tonight, especially after 06z.

Issued at 241 AM MDT Mon Sep 24 2018
VFR conditions will be present at MCK and GLD through 09Z Tuesday
morning.
A cold front will be moving through the region today
which will create a significant wind shift from light winds from
the south southwest to gusty winds from the northwest at both MCK
and GLD this morning between 14Z- 16Z. Between 16Z-18Z winds will
turn north northeasterly and lose their gustiness. Light winds
will continue out of the north northeast overnight with lower
clouds beginning to develop and become more widespread across the
region after 09Z.
After 09Z, GLD will see lower ceilings brining conditions down to
IFR and possibly LIFR. Around the same time MCK will see lower
clouds bring conditions down to MVFR.

Issued at 1151 AM CDT Mon Sep 24 2018
The biggest weather maker in the upcoming forecast will be a cold
front that will move through western Kansas between 12-15Z that
will bring strong winds and lowered ceilings. Winds are expected
to pick up behind the front 25-35 kts with the potential for the
highest gust to be over 40 kts. Post frontal stratus will also
accompany the wind change as cloud ceilings that will quickly
drop to IFR with potential LIFR conditions for a short time
period between 13-16Z for all the TAF sites before clouds start
breaking up and ceilings rise in the afternoon.

.AVIATION...
Early morning low clouds and fog already retreating even farther
east of terminals as drier southwest 850 mb winds continue.  VFR
conditions expected at all terminals next 24 hours.  Sky expected
to remain generally clear.  South and southwest surface winds
expected to gust to around 20 kt for a few hours from late morning
into the afternoon.  Frontal boundary may slip into Oklahoma
Panhandle late this afternoon causing a brief wind shift or period
of variable surface winds at GUY.  Otherwise, main frontal push
expected at DHT and GUY after 09z Tuesday.

18Z TAF CYCLE
VFR conditions prevail and are forecast to persist through the TAF
period with increased afternoon breezes relative to yesterday. A few
virga showers near KGUP and KFMN later this afternoon may create
gusty/erratic winds. A backdoor cold front will drop down the
eastern plains Tuesday and result in a wind shift at KTCC prior to
the end of the TAF period.
