(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SATURDAY)  
ISSUED AT 112 PM MST THU NOV 23 2017  
EAST OF THE DIVIDE...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL ROUTES  
THE MAIN ISSUE AGAIN THROUGH 18Z FRIDAY WILL BE WINDY TO STRONG  
WEST/SOUTHWEST WIND AND/OR LLWS IN THE WIND CORRIDOR FROM SOUTH PASS  
TO CASPER, LEE SIDE OF MOUNTAIN RANGES AND ADJACENT FOOTHILLS  
ESPECIALLY THE CODY FOOTHILLS. OTHERWISE VFR CONDITIONS WITH LEE-  
ENHANCED HIGH CLOUDINESS ARE EXPECTED. AFTER 06Z FRIDAY, A COLD  
FRONT WILL BEGIN TO DROP SOUTHWARD INTO NORTHERN WYOMING SWITCHING  
WINDS TO THE NORTH WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME MOUNTAIN SNOW/VALLEY  
RAIN SHOWERS, ALTHOUGH IT IS STILL DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT THEM AT  
THIS TIME. WIND SHOULD BEGIN TO DECREASE AFTER 18Z FRIDAY AFTER THE  
FRONT MOVES THROUGH AND THE PRESSURE GRADIENT DECREASES.  
WEST OF THE DIVIDE...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS ROUTES  
MAINLY VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED EARLY THIS EVENING. TONIGHT, AN  
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM WILL RESULT IN A CHANCE OF SOME MOUNTAIN  
SNOW/VALLEY RAIN SHOWERS ESPECIALLY AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE APPROACH OF  
THIS SYSTEM WILL RESULT IN BREEZY SOUTHERLY WINDS AT KJAC TERMINAL  
LATER TODAY INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. IF THE WINDS WOULD DECOUPLE  
TONIGHT, THEN LLWS WOULD BE AN ISSUE AT KJAC. AFTER 06Z FRIDAY, HAVE  
PREVAILED KJAC WITH SOME -SHRA, BUT KEPT CEILINGS IN THE LOW MVFR  
RANGE AS THE SOUTH/SOUTHWEST FLOW USUALLY KEEPS CEILINGS HIGHER THAN  
WHAT MOS GUIDANCE GIVE US. CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE AFTER 18Z AS  
THE FRONT MOVES AWAY TO THE SOUTH.  
PLEASE SEE THE AVIATION WEATHER CENTER FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION ON  
ICING AND TURBULENCE FORECASTS.
