.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)
Issued at 1005 AM MDT Mon Sep 16 2019
VFR conditions are expected through Monday night. Winds will veer
northeast and then east throughout the afternoon at DEN. A gust
front from showers over the mountains may move through DEN late
this afternoon or early evening with westerly winds behind it but
there is low confidence in this occurring. Normal drainage
patterns will overtake tonight.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)
Issued at 1128 AM MDT Mon Sep 16 2019
KALS...
Low cigs should break up in the next 1-2 hours with VFR conditions
thereafter. I am a bit concerned about some ground fog tomorrow
morning considering it rained in the valley during the last 18
hours. Will continue to monitor, but will keep any mention of fog
out of the taf for now.
KPUB and KCOS will be VFR next 24 hours. winds should be light.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)
Issued at 1131 AM MDT Mon Sep 16 2019
Storms will increase this afternoon in the mountains generally
south of interstate 70. Expect VCTS and brief reduction in CIGS
and VSBY in more moderate rain showers, especially over KGUC, KDRO
and KTEX. VFR conditions should largely prevail for all TAF sites
with CIGS staying above ILS breakpoints.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)
Issued at 1131 AM MDT Mon Sep 16 2019
Storms will increase this afternoon in the mountains generally
south of interstate 70. Expect VCTS and brief reduction in CIGS
and VSBY in more moderate rain showers, especially over KGUC, KDRO
and KTEX. VFR conditions should largely prevail for all TAF sites
with CIGS staying above ILS breakpoints.

Two areas of concern today. First is the winds ramping up for
southern airports such as RKS and CPR. Winds could reach 20 to 25
knots sustained later this afternoon. Second area is increasing
chances for precipitation for JAC/BPI/PNA this afternoon. Shower
activity will likely develop on higher elevations and drift east
near those airports. Afternoon showers will have lesser effects on
aviation operations, outside of some briefly gusty winds at
times. Overnight, shower activity begins to increase from west to
east as the next upper level system moves through. Showers likely
to start at or near all airports Tuesday morning.

Pretty quiet weather through the period. Expecting flight
conditions to remain VFR. Big concern for tomorrow morning is
increasing winds. Gusts across southeast Wyoming could be as high
as 40 to 50 MPH. Collapsing thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon could
produce higher erratic gusts. Storms will begin developing after
18Z tomorrow.

VFR conditions are expected at both KGLD and KMCK throughout the
forecast period. There is the possibility for some blowing dust to
impact the KGLD site between 18Z and 00Z, but visibility is not
expected to be lowered enough to change the flight category at
this time. Gusty southerly winds are expected through this evening
with the stronger gusts this afternoon up to 45 kts possible at
KGLD. KMCK will see slightly weaker winds but gusts will still be
around 30 to 35 kts through early this evening. Sustained
southerly winds around 10 to 15 kts are expected overnight with a
possible wind shift around 2 kft. Gusty winds will return Tuesday
afternoon with gusts up to 30 to 40 mph possible.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF CYCLE
MVFR cigs are still ongoing late this morning over portions of
western and central NM, but cigs are anticipated to improve to VFR
conditions early this afternoon. Another round of showers and
thunderstorms is expected this afternoon and evening, favoring
central and western NM. Confidence was low in this TAF cycle
regarding timing of activity, but all TAF sites except KTCC and KROW
will have some chance of shower and storm activity likely through at
least sunset. Gusty, variable winds as well as brief MVFR cigs will
likely accompany any storm activity.
