It is a complicated aviation forecast to say the least. Low
stratus, fog, and light snow is causing MVFR down to LIFR this
morning. Cigs and vis may try to improve some later this morning
and early afternoon, but the amount of moisture upstream does not
make that look promising. Another round of scattered snow showers
is expected to move across the area this afternoon. These showers
could briefly worsen the conditions as they pass over sites.
Models show the moisture hanging around tonight therefore stratus
and or fog is likely again.

and early afternoon, but the amount of moisture upstream does not
make that look promising. Another round of scattered snow showers
is expected to move across the area this afternoon. These showers
could briefly worsen the conditions as they pass over sites.
Models show the moisture hanging around tonight therefore stratus
and or fog is likely again.

.AVIATION...VFR conditions with periods of MVFR in passing snow
showers with lower CIGs are expected to persist over the SLC
terminal through about 16Z. Low CIGs between 3,000-5,000ft AGL
should begin to taper off by ~20Z, allowing for minimal ceiling
concerns through the remainder of the TAF period.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday)
Issued at 330 AM MST Wed Jan 22 2020
West of the Divide...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS Terminals
Ongoing snow with areas of MVFR conditions (brief IFR) across the
west should end in most locations by around 15Z. The exception
will be the far western mountains which will keep some light
snow/flurries much of the day. Breezy to windy west to northwest
winds will continue or develop across much of the area with
exception of JAC which will be more south southwest. Another round
of snow is expected over the far west after 06Z Wednesday with
MVFR ceilings possible at KJAC.
East of the Divide...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL Terminals
A cold front will slide south and east today with breezy to windy
west to northwest wind. Along and just in its wake there will be
a 2 to 4 hour window where isolated to scattered snow showers are
possible. This activity will be begin over the north Bighorn Basin
around 14Z and slide southeast exiting Natrona County by around
00Z. Terminals will have a chance of a snow showers, except KRIW
and KLND which should be south/southwest of the snow showers.
Brief IFR conditions are possible in snow showers. Will only have
VCSH in terminals as timing/coverage/confidence of shower activity
impacting terminals is not great enough to tempo lower
conditions. Decreasing cloudiness is expected after a few hours
after frontal passage with VFR conditions through the rest of the
TAF period. Winds will also decrease in most areas by around 00Z.

Cheyenne Aviation Discussion

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning)
Issued at 426 AM MST Wed Jan 22 2020
VFR conditions are anticipated at terminals in SE WY and the
Panhandle this morning through early afternoon, with the
exception of RWL. RWL may fluctuate between VFR and MVFR this
morning due to nearby snow showers in the higher terrain of Carbon
County. Recent observations at RWL have fluctuated between SKC and
BKN100 because of the clouds nearby, making the TAF tricky.
Decided against a TEMPO group at this time. Strong winds at the WY
and southern Panhandle terminals will also be an issue today with
wind gusts up to 25-35 knots at times. CDR and AIA will be the
outliers with wind gusts up to 20-25 knots this afternoon. Later
discussions will likely detail the chance for snow showers in the
northern Panhandle this afternoon for CDR and AIA.

Issued at 539 AM CST Wed Jan 22 2020
Fog and low ceilings this morning will bring MVFR and IFR
condition through the morning hours. Fog will diminish by mid-
morning and ceilings will begin to lift out of IFR and MVFR
criteria by early afternoon. VFR conditions are expected during
the afternoon. Then lower ceilings return this evening along with
a chance for light snow mainly across the Sandhills into north
central Nebraska. Snowfall will be light with the greatest
potential across north central Nebraska.

VFR to MVFR conditions forecast for the TAFs. KNRN, KOIN, KMCK are
all reporting fog. KNRN currently has IFR ceiling. Have high
confidence of the fog/stratus continuing at KMCK for the next
several hours. However, confidence is on the low side that the
ceiling will lower to IFR due to the northwest wind shift not
being too far west of KMCK, where the fog/stratus end. In
addition, KOEL was overcast and is not scattered and KOIN only
has fog. Am thinking that KMCK should be on the west edge of the
stratus and hopefully remain in the slightly higher ceiling. If
KMCK is going to have IFR ceiling, will occur in the next hour.
Otherwise northwest winds will breezy today, especially for KGLD,
then lighten tonight. MVFR conditions may return to KMCK as the
cold front moves through this evening.

Southwest winds at AMA and GUY will gradually become northerly by
mid to late morning as a cold front moves through the area. DHT
will be northwest behind a surface trough before turning more
northerly behind the cold front. Wind speeds are expected to be in
the 10 to 15 knot range behind the front. Skies are expected to
remain VFR.

IFR/LIFR conditions will persist through the early morning hours at
numerous TAF locations to include KABQ, KAEG, and KROW. Gradual
improvements have already begun at KGUP and KFMN, and this trend is
expected elsewhere through the morning into the early afternoon.
Confidence is a bit low on precise timing of these improvements, so
some AMDs may be made to adjust as necessary. Mtn obscurations will
be common through the west and north this morning as well. Breezy nw
winds will fill in through much of NM this afternoon. As winds
decouple overnight into Thu, fog may bring the return of IFR
conditions to more isolated spots Thu morning however confidence in
this is rather low at this time.
