VFR conditions will continue across the forecast area through the
forecast period. There will continue to be scattered mid to high
clouds across the region until around 03Z tonight, with SKC
conditions then expected through the end of the forecast. Have
upped wind speeds from the west to northwest at most TAF sites
after the 15z-16z time frame toward the end of the forecast.

Patchy low clouds out by KSNY will move off early this afternoon
as an upper level trough moves eastward. VFR conditions will
persist through the afternoon and evening elsewhere as dry air
moves in. Gusty winds will pick up Sunday afternoon and will be
included in subsequent updates with gusts above 25 kt from KCYS
westward.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon)
Issued at 1222 PM CDT Sat Aug 24 2019
The main aviation concerns for this TAF period will be the ongoing
showers and thunderstorms. Latest radar imagery shows showers and
a few embedded thunderstorms across north central Nebraska and
portions of southwest Nebraska. Storms chances will continue
across the area for much of the afternoon and continue into the
overnight. Currently KLBF is clear from any storms, however, there
are storms going up to the west of the site. KVTN is seeing light
showers that will continue over the next few hours. Scattered
thunderstorms are expected to redevelop late this afternoon and
into the evening. Storms should begin to clear from west to east
overnight with a chance for some fog potential towards morning.

At KMCK...showers and isolated thunderstorms already developing
across southwest Nebraska. Expect an uptick in coverage and
intensity of storms at KMCK by late afternoon through early
evening, then the storms will move south. Might see brief gusty
winds and hail if a stronger storm moves directly over the
terminal. Overnight, areas of fog will develop with VLIFR/IFR
conditions around sunrise Sunday morning. Ceilings will be slow to
improve Sunday morning.
At KGLD...less certainty with the thunderstorms developing further
west. Although an isolated storms cannot be ruled out, not enough
confidence to mention in the TAF at this time. Ceilings have
lifted to just above VFR, but may occasionally drop to MVFR through
early afternoon. Overnight, areas of fog will develop with
VLIFR/IFR conditions around sunrise Sunday morning. Ceilings will
be slow to improve Sunday morning.

Low clouds from earlier this morning were slow to erode as of 17z
today. Based on the latest satellite and BUFR soundings will
continue to favor improving conditions this afternoon but delay
VFR ceilings in the Dodge City until after 19z and Hays until
after 21z Saturday. The focus then shifts to a cluster of strong
to severe thunderstorms that will be crossing the Hays and Dodge
City areas during the overnight hours. CAMS seem to be in better
agreement with the timing and location of these storms and move
these storms across the Hays area between 01z and 05z Sunday.
These storms will then cross, or be near, the Dodge City area
between 04z and 07z Sunday. Isolated thunderstorms will be
possible at Garden City and Liberal between 23z Saturday and 03z
Sunday but the coverage of these storms will be limited. Strong
winds and very heavy rainfall and at least MVFR conditions will
accompany these storms. Following these storms it appears that
stratus will once again be an issue with IFR ceilings becoming
possible mainly in the Hays and near/east of Dodge City early
Sunday morning.

.AVIATION...18z TAFS...
VFR conditions will likely prevail at all TAF sites over the next
24 hours. Isolated storms possible across the Panhandles today,
storms that develop will likely become severe. Given the isolated
coverage, not confident to include in DHT or AMA TAFS, so
amendments may be needed. However, VCTS has been noted from
00-06z for KGUY given that site will be closest to the main
threats in southern KS. Winds will generally be out of the south
around 10kts for the majority of the TAF period.

.AVIATION...
18Z TAF CYCLE
VFR conditions will prevail over the region through the TAF period.
Afternoon wind gusts up to 20-25 knots were captured in the previous
TAF package and no significant changes are noted. A few storms may
develop in northeast NM with a slightly greater chance in the Upper
Gila and Sacramento Mts during peak heating into early evening. The
risk at KTCC/KROW is too low to include in TAFs. DPorter
