.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night)
Issued at 243 AM MDT Tue Jul 16 2019
Southerly drainage winds early this morning will trend to the
southwest through mid-morning before backing to the southeast
early in the afternoon. Another round of thunderstorms and
showers containing gusty outflow winds can be expected again near
20z. These are expected to push east by 00z and will likely push
outflow out of the east back to the airports, before the winds
become drainage again by midnight.

VFR conditions expected today with high based thunderstorms develop
over the mountains shortly before noon and moving/developing across
the southeast plains during the afternoon and evening.  Winds will
start out light and diurnally driven, but will become gusty in the
afternoon and evening as convective thunderstorm outflow winds
dominate.  Localized wind gusts up to 40 kts will be possible near
high based thunderstorms, and will carry this in the TAFs. -KT

Issued at 628 AM CDT Tue Jul 16 2019
Clouds and isolated thunderstorms will move out of western and
north central Nebraska this morning. Skies will be mostly clear
today with a small chance for thunderstorms late this afternoon
and evening across northern Nebraska. Storms may impact the KVTN
terminal this evening, however some timing differences were noted
with the latest model solutions, so will handle mention with a
VCTS group for now.

KGLD, vfr conditions expected through the period. Variable winds
at taf issuance will establish a southerly component from 17z
through the rest of the period. The exception could be in the
01z-03z timeframe as a few thunderstorms may move over or be near
the terminal. Gusty outflow winds to 55 mph will be possible.

Mid level moisture and instability ahead of an upper level
disturbance that will be crossing southwest Kansas this morning
will produce some isolated to widely scattered showers and
possibly even a few thunderstorms through 15z Tuesday. Once this
upper wave passes the skies will clear and then remain most clear
through early Wednesday morning. Winds at less than 10 knots this
morning will become south and increase to around 15 knots by noon
as 15 to 25 knots winds mix down to the surface. After sunset
these winds will decrease around 10 knots.

VFR condition will prevail at all TAF sites over the next 24
hours. Winds will be mainly out of the south 10-15kts, may see
some 20kt gusts from 15-03z. FEW-SCT 15-25kft clouds for the TAF
period. Right now confidence is too low to note thunderstorms at
any TAF sites, but be on the lookout for updated TAFS, as the
chances may increase, mainly for KDHT and/or KGUY.
