.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning)
Issued at 352 AM MDT Sat Aug 17 2019
VFR conditons are expected over KALS, KCOS, and KPUB throughout the
forecast period. Gusty westerly winds are anticipated during the
afternoon, with some gusts reaching around 35 mph. There is the
chance for isolated thunderstorms over the Palmer Divide this
afternoon, so VCTS near KCOS is possible.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning)
Issued at 536 AM MDT Sat Aug 17 2019
Isolated to scattered showers with occasional lightning will
continue across areas north of I-70 through about 18Z. Winds will
increase after 18Z with frequent gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop across the
north and into the central CO mountains this afternoon and come to
an end by early evening. VCTS is most likely at KHDN, KVEL, KASE
and KEGE with gusty outflow winds the primary concern. Overall,
mostly dry conditions with breezy to windy conditions will occur
with little in the way of rainfall.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning)
Issued at 536 AM MDT Sat Aug 17 2019
Isolated to scattered showers with occasional lightning will
continue across areas north of I-70 through about 18Z. Winds will
increase after 18Z with frequent gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop across the
north and into the central CO mountains this afternoon and come to
an end by early evening. VCTS is most likely at KHDN, KVEL, KASE
and KEGE with gusty outflow winds the primary concern. Overall,
mostly dry conditions with breezy to windy conditions will occur
with little in the way of rainfall.

.AVIATION...Light winds at the KSLC terminal may be variable at
times during the morning but should settle out of the northwest by
16z-17z. Elevated winds during the afternoon should relax and likely
remain out of the northwest into the evening hours. There is a 20
percent chance a southeast wind shift takes place after 02z this
evening.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning)
Issued at 416 AM MDT Sat Aug 17 2019
Terminals will be VFR through 12Z/Sunday. The exception could be
for the possibility of low clouds developing at KCPR between 05Z
and 09Z as the boundary layer moistens up in wake of a cold front
later today. Gusty west surface wind will be the primary hazard
across the southwest terminals again on Saturday. Gusts 25-35kts
will be common from 18Z/Sat- 02Z/Sun. Tail end of an upper low
moving east across the Canadian Prairie provinces will clip
northern Wyoming Saturday generating clouds and a slight chance of
showers. Some of this weak convection could approach KCOD and
have included VCSH and broken mid-cloud deck. For the most part,
these showers should stay over the mountains to the north. The
northern showers will dissipate during the evening and leave a
mostly clear sky after 06Z/Sun. The upper low will push a cold
front through the northern terminals Saturday afternoon. This
boundary will reach a KLND- KCPR line by 03Z/Sun with a gusty
north wind in its wake. Post- frontal wind will diminish around
06Z/Sun.

Issued at 530 AM MDT Sat Aug 17 2019
Generally expected VFR conditions through this afternoon and into
this evening across most of the region.  However, some fog has
developed at KBFF in the last hour. Expect this fog to bring
occasional LIFR VIS through 14z before it lifts after sunrise.  West
to southwest winds will quickly increase by mid to late morning,
especially across the southeast Wyoming terminals with gusts up to
35 knots expected until 02z this evening.

Issued at 620 AM CDT Sat Aug 17 2019
Patchy fog is possible early this morning with visibilities down
to 1SM at KLBF. VFR conditions will return by mid-morning as fog
quickly burns off. VFR conditions will continue throughout much
of the remainder of the TAF period. There`s another low chance of
rain showers and isolated thunderstorms on Saturday late afternoon
and evening mainly across the northern forecast area impacting
KVTN. Confidence in timing and location are still too low to put
in anything more than a brief mention of a vicinity shower at both
terminals.

.AVIATION...
For the 12z TAFs...
Low-level jet will lead to areas of low-level wind shear around
AMA for the first couple of hours of the forecast.  Surface winds
expected to trend to southwest this morning, with occasional gusts
this afternoon in the 15 to 20 kt range.  Isolated to scattered
thunderstorms this afternoon evening expected to be mainly east of
all terminals, with likelihood of a direct impact to any terminal
being too low to include in forecasts at this time.  High-level
cumulus expected to increase this afternoon and evening, remaining
well within VFR range.
