VFR TO MVFR CONDITIONS FORECAST FOR THE TAFS. A COLD FRONT WILL  
SLOWLY MOVE SOUTHEAST FROM NORTHEAST COLORADO. THE FRONT WILL MOVE  
THROUGH BOTH SITES AROUND 6Z. THE BEST CHANCE FOR STORM ACTIVITY  
WILL BE NORTHWEST OF KGLD AND NORTH/WEST OF KMCK. A STRONG LLJ  
WILL CAUSE LLWS TO DEVELOP FOR BOTH SITES DURING THE NIGHT. AROUND  
12Z MVFR CEILING WILL MOVE OVER KGLD BUT LOOKS TO REMAIN WEST OF  
KMCK AT THIS TIME.

(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z MONDAY AFTERNOON)  
ISSUED AT 1101 AM CDT SUN JUN 17 2018  
VFR WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THIS TAF FORECAST CYCLE, WITH VARIABLE  
AMOUNTS OF MID/HIGH CLOUDS. NAM MODEL INDICATES AN ISOLATED  
THUNDERSTORM IS POSSIBLE NEAR ANY OF THE AIRPORTS LATE THIS  
AFTERNOON. CLOUD COVER WILL CONTINUE TO LIMIT INSTABILITY THROUGH  
THIS AFTERNOON, AND HAVE LITTLE CONFIDENCE THAT A THUNDERSTORM  
WILL IMPACT A SPECIFIC AIRPORT, SO KEPT CONVECTION OUT OF THE 18Z  
TAF ISSUANCE. STRONG SOUTH WINDS WILL ONCE AGAIN IMPACT ALL  
AIRPORTS THROUGH 00Z MON, GUSTING IN THE 30-35 KT RANGE. WINDS  
WILL SUBSIDE SOME AND BACK MORE SELY THIS EVENING, AND DIMINISH  
SOME MORE AFTER MIDNIGHT AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT CONTINUES TO  
RELAX. DAYTIME WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BE MUCH REDUCED ON MONDAY  
COMPARED TO RECENT DAYS.
