Denver/Boulder Aviation Discussion
Issued at 0245 UTC Saturday, May 25, 2019

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 845 PM MDT Fri May 24 2019
No aviation impacts expected overnight as skies become mostly
clear and winds gradually return to typical drainage patterns.
tomorrow morning will also see mostly clear skies along with
southeasterly winds. During the afternoon there may be a slight
chance of thunderstorm activity developing. Coverage of showers
should be very spotty, so will leave the mention of showers out of
the TAF products until there is a stronger indication that enough
moisture will be present to support better shower coverage.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night)
Issued at 1038 PM MDT Fri May 24 2019
VFR conditions expected through the night as cigs have stabilized
for most of Wyoming. Radar continues to show a few showers moving
through eastern ID, which may continue to drift across NW WY
overnight. Have kept some VCSH for COD and JAC overnight, but any
passing shower will have trouble drawing cigs down below maybe
2500 feet. Saturday will see shower activity still expected for
the far western airports, including JAC, BPI and PNA. Enough
instability expect with these showers that some thunder is
possible during the afternoon. Once daytime heating ends, shower
activity should decrease, and is not expected to expand eastward
across the Continental Divide.

Cheyenne Aviation Discussion

a few rumbles of thunder will continue until 02z, mainly across
western Nebraska this evening. Winds will diminish around sunset and
remain light and variable through most of the night and into early
Saturday morning.

shower or thunderstorm cannot be ruled out overnight for southwest
Nebraska. Otherwise, VFR and just some high clouds will continue

VFR conditions are expected through the TAF period at McCook and
Goodland terminals, with the possible exception of a passing
isolated thunderstorm at MCK. There is a chance for an isolated
thunderstorm near the McCook terminal after 06Z tonight, around
08Z. IFR ceiling conditions will be possible with a passing
thunderstorm. Winds are expected to decrease over the next 1 to 2
hours at both TAF sites.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Saturday night)
Issued at 1035 PM CDT Fri May 24 2019
VFR will prevail through the majority of this TAF cycle. In a
moist boundary layer, areas of stratus of BR/fog are possible
through sunrise Saturday. Short term models do not develop much,
so kept out of the TAFs, but will monitor for amendments. Light
SE winds will pravail overnight. After 15z Sat, SE winds will
increase at all airports, gusting in the 25 kt range by afternoon.
The strongest winds are expected at LBL, the weakest at HYS.
During the 20z Sat- 03z Sun, time frame scattered to numerous
thunderstorms are expected at all airports. Have enough confidence
to include convective TEMPO groups with this TAF issuance. Some
storms will be strong to severe, with large hail and wind gusts in
excess of 50 kts.

.AVIATION...
For the 00z TAFs...
Outflow boundary emanating from thunderstorms from Lubbock to
Childress can be seen in KAMA 88D data, currently near a line from
Hereford to Boys Ranch to Dumas.  Outflow has brought cooler air
which has reduced instability with its passage.  Chances for
evening thunderstorms have gone down as well.
VFR conditions expected to prevail at all terminals through this
evening and overnight.  MVFR ceilings expected to move into
southeast part of forecast area around sunrise, reaching AMA
around 15z Saturday, and not reaching northern terminals.
Ceilings at AMA expected to lift into VFR range early- to mid-
afternoon.
Threat for afternoon and evening thunderstorms exists at all
terminals Saturday with very unstable airmass in place ahead of
dryline.

00Z TAF CYCLE
Winds will taper off after sunset under clear skies. The main focus
overnight will be low level moisture return and potential low cigs in
the area from KROW to KCVS and KTCC aft 06Z. Near-term hi-res model
guidance shows SHRA/TSRA in this same area btwn 06Z and 14Z, thus
convective development will likely aid low cigs in its wake. Dry
south-southwest winds will increase again at all terminals late
Saturday morning with gusts in the 20-30 kt range by the afternoon.
There is a better chance for strong to perhaps severe SHRA/TSRA over
far eastern NM Saturday aft 20Z.
