.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday night)
Issued at 1137 PM MDT Thu Apr 25 2019
Scattered mid and high cloud cover will continue to traverse
across the area with mainly dry conditions aside from a stray
shower or two through early this morning. VFR conditions will
prevail. Conditions deteriorate after 18Z Friday as scattered to
widespread thunderstorms develop across much of the region. The
storm activity and best chance that TAF sites will see heavy rain
and low visibility in storms is between 21Z Friday and 03Z
Saturday as the cold front moves through. Storms may produce
strong wind gusts up to 50 mph with hail possible in the stronger
storms. Otherwise, expect breezy conditions throughout the
afternoon and evening with winds generally gusting 20 to 30 kts.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday night)
Issued at 1137 PM MDT Thu Apr 25 2019
Scattered mid and high cloud cover will continue to traverse
across the area with mainly dry conditions aside from a stray
shower or two through early this morning. VFR conditions will
prevail. Conditions deteriorate after 18Z Friday as scattered to
widespread thunderstorms develop across much of the region. The
storm activity and best chance that TAF sites will see heavy rain
and low visibility in storms is between 21Z Friday and 03Z
Saturday as the cold front moves through. Storms may produce
strong wind gusts up to 50 mph with hail possible in the stronger
storms. Otherwise, expect breezy conditions throughout the
afternoon and evening with winds generally gusting 20 to 30 kts.

.AVIATION...
An initial round of showers/storms in the vicinity of the KSLC
terminal is expected to develop by 15/16z, with a greater threat
of thunderstorm development again during a window in the afternoon
(21-01z). Erratic outflow winds will be the primary operational
impact with this storm development, but in large still anticipate
a NW wind to prevail after 18-19z...modestly gusty at times.

Latest satellite imagery shows clear skies, except for few-sct
middle and high clouds across parts of northwestern NEB. Rest of
tonight, additional middle and high clouds are expected to
develop and spread in coverage primarily over northern NEB and
parts of the Sandhills. Current thinking is conditions will remain
dry, however, there is a low-end chance for showers across
extreme northern NEB late tonight-early morning. Otherwise, light
winds are in place with winds shifting and become southerly by
late morning. Breezy southerly winds will then persist tomorrow
through early evening. Otherwise, partly sunny-mostly cloudy skies
are expected tomorrow. Increased chances for showers and some
thunderstorms then begin in the late afternoon-evening hours.

VFR expected at both KGLD and KMCK through the TAF period.
Southerly surface winds will increase to 15-20kts by mid/late
Friday morning and continue through about 00z Friday night.
Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms will move off the
eastern plains of Colorado Friday evening, but coverage expected
to be too sparse for enough confidence to mention in either TAF at
this time.

VFR conditions will prevail in the vicinity of all TAF sites through
late this afternoon. Light and variable winds will persist overnight
as surface high pressure moves slowly eastward from western Kansas
into the Central Plains. Winds will then turn southerly around 15 to
25kt generally after 14Z as a lee side trough of low pressure develops
across eastern Colorado. Southerly winds will increase through Friday
afternoon as the surface trough deepens with wind speeds upward of
35 to 40kt.

06Z TAF CYCLE
Remnant showers and storms continue to dissipate over portions of
eastern NM. East canyon winds at KABQ have been held off thanks to
light virga/shra activity from the west this evening. Have backed off
with the timing and strength as a result of the east winds at KABQ.
Southeast/upslope flow still has a good chance at lowering cigs to
MVFR at KLVS and along the east slopes of the Sangre`s later tonight,
but confidence on exact timing and placement is a bit iffy. Lee side
sfc low will set over southeast CO tomorrow with winds shifting out
of the S/SW across the east Friday afternoon by 15-18Z. Strongest
winds with gusts upwards of 35-40kts by 20Z-00Z will focus over the
northeast plains for KCAO. A few spotty areas of shra/ts will form
over the central mountain chain tomorrow afternoon, but forecast
coverage isn`t high enough to warrant inclusion in any TAFs except
KLVS.
