A weak disturbance will keep mid-clouds in place over the upper

VFR prevails. Isolated to widely scattered rain/snow showers could
affect southeast Wyoming and western Nebraska terminals during the
morning hours, w/ activity gradually diminishing by afternoon over
much of the area. Heavier showers may be accompanied by brief MVFR
ceilings & visibilities, but low confidence precludes mention with
this TAF package. Otherwise, strong and gusty northwest winds will
occur from late this AM through this afternoon across a large part
of the region. Widespread wind gusts in excess of 30-40 knots will
be likely. Winds should decrease after about 0 to 3z this evening.

VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period. The main
concerns are the expected development of gusty northwest winds of
30 knots or higher and the development of scattered showers and
weak storms. Confidence in any of these directly impacting the TAF
sites is low so will exclude for now.

For KGLD and KMCK, vfr conditions through the period. North to
northwest winds gusting 35 to 42kts expected today before quickly
subsiding and backing to the west/northwest tonight. A weather
disturbance moves south through the area during the time of peak
heating sparking isolated showers and thunderstorms. Impossible to
identify if/when a shower moves over either terminal so have added
a vcsh group from 17z-00z to cover this for now.

North to northwest winds will pick up into the 22 to 29 knot range
with higher gusts by mid to late morning. Then winds will
decrease to less than 10 knots with sunset. A few rain showers
will be possible at the GUY TAF site today, but do not think they
will cause MVFR or IFR conditions, so will not mention at this
time. Skies are expected to remain VFR.

Remnant low clouds and patchy fog have been left behind over portions
of central New Mexico where MVFR to LIFR conditions will remain
possible. Areas outside of the Rio Grande valley and other central
sections will predominantly stay at VFR this morning. Clearing skies
will then be the trend late in the morning into the afternoon with
breezy conditions found in the northwestern corner of New Mexico and
also along the eastern border of the state.
