VFR conditions are expected at KCOS and KPUB during the next 24
hours. Winds will be light.
KALS may see some fog later tonight and tomorrow morning. Most
guidance shows VFR but given snow on the ground and some melting
earlier today, some br will be possible. Otherwise, VFR conditions
are anticipated along with light winds.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Thursday night)
Issued at 1222 AM CDT Thu Oct 29 2020
Primary concern will be the potential for MVFR CIGs and
visibilities overnight into Thursday morning with low
stratus/fog. Low stratus with MVFR CIGs is currently moving slowly
across the central Sandhills and is impacting both TIF and ANW.
This will continue to push southwest and is anticipated to impact
OGA and potentially LBF and IML over the next few hours. Further
low stratus and fog development is expected area wide through the
overnight hours with the potential for MVFR. This low stratus/fog
is expected to end late morning Thursday with the return of
daytime heating.

.AVIATION...06Z TAFs...
Primary aviation concern over the next 24 hours is the next 8
hours, when ongoing rain and snow is expected to diminish along
with associated MVFR to LIFR ceilings. Expect the worst conditions
at AMA, where LIFR conditions are currently present, but
gradual improvement to VFR should occur by mid-morning.
Precipitation shield is largely east of DHT, with some lingering
MVFR ceilings possible over the next hour. As for GUY, most
precipitation there has changed over to rain, with VFR ceilings
becoming predominant before sunrise. Strong northwesterly wind
gusts are expected at all sites overnight, with speeds decreasing
during the day Thursday. As this occurs, expect winds to back to
southwesterly.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF CYCLE
The upper level low responsible for keeping wintry weather over much
of eastern New Mexico on Wednesday continues to slowly shift east of
the state, and precipitation is coming to an end. A few remnant areas
of low clouds and light flurries or sprinkles will be possible over
far eastern parts of the state through early Thursday morning. Also,
through the morning localized to patchy freezing fog will also be
possible in parts of the Rio Grande valley and perhaps the Animas and
San Juan valleys, as well as over areas of recent high snowpack.
Isolated areas of MVFR to IFR conditions will be possible. Mostly
clear skies, very light breezes, and VFR conditions will take hold by
afternoon.
