.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 510 AM MDT Sun Apr 21 2019
Spotty rain showers have developed over KDEN in the past half hour
as a weak northerly surge of surface winds moves down the I-25
corridor. At higher levels, satellite imagery shows moisture
moving northward with drier air coming up from southeast Colorado.
This should clear things out for a couple hours during the mid and
late morning. Winds will be westerly to northerly through midday.
Later this afternoon ceilings the next upper level disturbance
will arrive from the south with lowering ceilings and increasing
chances of rain showers. Isolated embedded thunderstorms will also
be possible. A surface cold front will also move down from the
north with gusty north winds through a good portion of the
afternoon. Ceiling should remain above 4000-5000 feet AGL during
the afternoon hours. By 6 PM this evening ceilings will begin
coming down further as ongoing upslope flow saturates the airmass
and rain showers continue developing. MVFR and IFR ceilings should
be expected overnight as light to moderate rain continues. Winds
will be northerly overnight.

VFR conditions expected today with another round of gusty west to
southwest winds in the afternoon as convective processes get going.
Erratic wind gusts from 40 to near 50 kts will be possible near high
based thunderstorms today though its much more likely terminals will
see gusts in the 30-40 kt range in the afternoon. A cold front will
drop through the area shifting winds at KCOS and KPUB from the north
during the early evening with gusts to near 30 kts possible.  Even
stronger gusts will be possible if the front becomes enhanced by
thunderstorm outflows to the north. MVFR to IFR cigs will develop
towards morning across the southeast mountains and plains though
models suggest cigs may stay in the MVFR range for KCOS and KPUB
given northerly downslope winds off the Palmer Divide into Monday
morning. KALS will remain VFR. -KT

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 527 AM MDT Sun Apr 21 2019
Showers and embedded thunderstorms will move over the area during
the day and are expected to linger into the night. Potential for
showers at TAF sites are relatively low, though brief light
showers cannot be entirely ruled out. Regardless, flight
conditions should remain at VFR levels and CIGS below ILS
breakpoints are unlikely. Gusty outflow winds associated with
showers/thunderstorms is far more likely with peak gusts to 45 MPH

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 527 AM MDT Sun Apr 21 2019
Showers and embedded thunderstorms will move over the area during
the day and are expected to linger into the night. Potential for
showers at TAF sites are relatively low, though brief light
showers cannot be entirely ruled out. Regardless, flight
conditions should remain at VFR levels and CIGS below ILS
breakpoints are unlikely. Gusty outflow winds associated with
showers/thunderstorms is far more likely with peak gusts to 45 MPH

a northerly wind shift, also gusting in the 25-28 kt range. Models
continue to suggest isolated convection will develop along/behind

midlevel cloud cigs will gradually lower tonight through sunrise
Monday in the post-frontal airmass.

Albuquerque Aviation Discussion
Issued at 1150 UTC Sunday, April 21, 2019

West and southwest winds will be gusty today as an upper level
trough crosses the Four Corners and central Rockies. It may trigger a
few virga showers and mainly dry thunderstorms in the Sandia and
northern mountains, and adjacent highlands, this afternoon and
evening. Dry microbursts will be capable of dry microbursts gusting
up to 50 mph. The system will send a gusty back door cold front
southwestward through the eastern plains late tonight and Monday.
There will probably be areas of low clouds with MVFR and locally IFR
conditions along and behind the front across northeast and east
central areas late tonight into Monday morning.
