REDUCED. RIDGETOP TURBULENCE WILL CONTINUE TO BE POSSIBLE OVER THE  
NEXT 24 HOURS AS WELL. VFR CONDITIONS ARE MOST PROBABLE TO  
CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS HOWEVER SOME CIGS ARE LIKELY TO  
REACH OR SURPASS ILS BREAK POINTS. SOME RIMING OR ICING IS  
POSSIBLE AS WELL WITH FREEZING TEMPERATURES LOWERING TOWARD  
MOUNTAIN TOP LEVEL OVERNIGHT.

(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY)  
ISSUED AT 1106 PM MDT FRI SEP 22 2017  
WEST OF THE DIVIDE...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS ROUTES  
MOISTURE AXIS NOW OVER FAR WESTERN WYOMING WITH LESS CLOUD COVER TO  
THE WEST OVER EASTERN IDAHO. MOISTURE STILL MOVING SOUTH-TO-NORTH  
AND PROGRESSING SLOWLY EAST. IR SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWING SOME  
COOLING CLOUD TOPS WITHIN THIS AXIS, SO LINGERING SNOW SHOWERS STILL  
POSSIBLE THROUGH ABOUT 09Z/SAT WITH LOCAL MVFR CONDITIONS. BY  
12Z/SAT, VFR CONDITIONS SHOULD PREDOMINATE AT KBPI, KPNA, AND KJAC  
FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST PERIOD. KRKS, HOWEVER, IS ANOTHER  
STORY. CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH REGARDING HOW CEILINGS COULD BOUNCE  
AROUND. COULD SEE A SCENARIO WITH SOME PARTIAL CLEARING FOLLOWED BY  
QUICK LOW CLOUD FORMATION. CEILINGS COULD RISE TO VFR SATURDAY  
AFTERNOON BEFORE DYNAMICS AHEAD OF 700MB LOW OVER NORTHEAST UTAH  
HELP TO GENERATE PRECIPITATION LATE IN THE DAY THROUGH THE EVENING.  
GUSTY 15G25KT ENE WIND EXPECTED AT KRKS AS PRESSURE GRADIENT  
TIGHTENS BETWEEN 00Z-06Z/SUN. MOUNTAIN TOP OBSCURATIONS WILL PERSIST  
THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD.  
EAST OF THE DIVIDE...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL ROUTES  
JET DYNAMICS CONTINUE TO HELP DRIVE ONGOING PRECIPITATION AS  
MOISTURE OVERRUNS THE COOL AIR DOME IN PLACE ACROSS CENTRAL AND  
NORTHERN WYOMING. IT DOES APPEAR THAT THIS ACTIVITY SHOULD WANE  
BETWEEN 09Z-11Z/SAT AND HAVE TRIED TO TIME TAFS TO REFLECT THIS  
TREND. LITTLE CONFIDENCE IN HOW CEILINGS WILL RESPOND OVERNIGHT WITH  
MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER. IFR/MVFR TO RULE AND FOG MAY ALSO BECOME A  
PLAYER OVERNIGHT. VFR CONDITIONS LOOK UNLIKELY THROUGH THE FORECAST  
PERIOD. LIGHT PRECIPITATION SHOULD START TO BREAK OUT JUST PRIOR TO  
18Z/SAT ACROSS CENTRAL WYOMING. PRECIPITATION SHOULD BECOME MORE  
WIDESPREAD DURING THE AFTERNOON AS LOW-LEVEL UPSLOPE INCREASES IN  
RESPONSE TO 700MB LOW MOVING INTO NORTHEAST UTAH. POSITION OF THIS  
LOW SHOULD BE FAVORABLE FOR PRECIPITATION TO CONTINUE THROUGH AT  
LEAST SATURDAY EVENING AT KCPR AND KRIW. DYNAMICS AND RIGHT ENTRANCE  
REGION OF THE JET SHOULD ENHANCE PRECIPITATION BETWEEN 00Z-06Z/SUN.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SATURDAY NIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 1148 PM CDT FRI SEP 22 2017  
LOCAL RADAR DISPLAY SHOWS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BLOSSOMING  
ACROSS WEST CENTRAL NEB AND THE WESTERN-THIRD OF THE SANDHILLS,  
ELSEWHERE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE PRESENT ACROSS  
IN NORTH CENTRAL NEB. HAZARDS INCLUDE CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING  
AND WIND GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH. A STRONG THUNDERSTORM CANNOT BE RULED  
OUT TONIGHT. OTHERWISE, LATEST SURFACE PLOT SHOWS A SURFACE FRONT  
THAT LIES ROUGHLY NEAR IMPERIAL TO BROKEN BOW TO NEAR ALBION,  
BREEZY WINDS CONTINUE NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE FRONT.  
CURRENT THINKING IS SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO BLOSSOM  
NOW INTO THE SMALL HOURS ACROSS THE WESTERN AND CENTRAL SANDHILLS  
ON NORTH. ELSE, LLWS CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE OVER PARTS OF  
SOUTHWEST NEB TONIGHT ATTRIBUTABLE TO A STRONG LOW-LEVEL JET.  
MENTION OF LLWS CONTINUES IN THE KLBF TAF. THINK A REPRIEVE OF  
SORTS WILL OCCUR ACROSS PORTIONS OF WESTERN NEB IN THE MORNING  
HOURS, WITH PRECIP THEN MORE ISOLATED. THIS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY  
LIKELY RAIN SHOWERS IN THE AFTERNOON THEN WIDESPREAD SHOWERS THEN  
TOMORROW EVENING. OTHERWISE, THUNDERSTORMS CAN BE EXPECTED  
ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHWEST HALF OF THE LOCAL FORECAST AREA  
TOMORROW.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)  
ISSUED AT 1114 AM MDT FRI SEP 22 2017  
VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED AT MCK AND GLD THROUGH THE TAF PERIOD.  
A STEEP PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE ACROSS THE CENTRAL  
HIGH PLAINS REGION AHEAD OF A VERY SLOW MOVING SURFACE  
TROUGH/FRONT/DRYLINE. AS THE NIGHT TIME INVERSION SETS UP ACROSS  
THE REGION, SURFACE WINDS WILL SLACKEN AND LLWS WILL DEVELOP AS  
THE STRONGER WINDS REMAIN ABOVE THE INVERSION. ISOLATED SHOWERS  
AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE DURING THE EVENING, BUT COVERAGE  
AND PROBABILITY OF STORMS IS LOW ENOUGH TO LEAVE THEM OUT OF THE  
MCK AND GLD TAFS FOR NOW. MOISTURE WILL INCREASE AND DEEPEN ALOFT  
OVER THE REGION OVERNIGHT. THE PROBABILITY OF SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE AFTER 14Z SATURDAY MORNING AND WILL  
CONTINUE TO INCREASE THROUGH THE DAY ON SATURDAY.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SATURDAY EVENING)  
ISSUED AT 615 PM CDT FRI SEP 22 2017  
GUSTY SURFACE WINDS WILL PERSIST INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS AT  
ALL THE TERMINALS. THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS, LLWS WILL BECOME  
MORE OF AN ISSUE AS SURFACE WINDS DIMINISH SOMEWHAT AND 45-50  
KNOTS WINDS CONTINUE A FEW THOUSAND FEET AGL. ISOLATED TO WIDELY  
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS CURRENTLY FORMING OVER FAR SOUTHWEST  
KANSAS INTO THE WEST TEXAS PANHANDLE SHOULD STAY WEST OF THE  
GARDEN CITY AND LIBERAL TERMINALS THIS EVENING BEFORE DYING OUT.  
THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS OVER FAR SOUTHWEST  
KANSAS LATE TONIGHT INTO SATURDAY BUT WILL FOREGO MENTIONING IN  
THE TAFS AT THIS TIME GIVEN THE SPARSE COVERAGE.

BEST CHANCES OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE AT DHT LATE IN  
THIS FORECAST. LOW CLOUDS IN THE MVFR RANGE MAY DEVELOP AHEAD OF  
THESE SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AROUND MID DAY AT DHT, BUT LOW  
CLOUDS SHOULD STAY OUT OF THE AMA AND GUY TAF SITES. SOUTHEAST TO  
SOUTH WINDS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE FORECAST. WINDS WILL ALSO  
GET GUSTY DURING THE DAY ON SATURDAY.

00Z TAF CYCLE  
SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT AHEAD OF A LARGE AND DEEP CLOSED LOW CENTERED  
OVER ID WILL CONTINUE ACROSS NM OVERNIGHT. MEANWHILE, AT THE SURFACE,  
GULF MOISTURE IS INCREASING ACROSS ERN NM ON SOUTHEAST WINDS. THIS  
MOISTURE WILL COMBINE WITH INCREASING LIFT AND INSTABILITY AHEAD OF  
THE UPPER LOW LATE TONIGHT AND RESULT IN INCREASING SHOWERS/T-STORMS  
ACROSS THE EASTERN HALF OF THE STATE AFTER 23/06Z. WEST OF THE  
CENTRAL MTS, LIFT ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG MID-LEVEL TEMPERATURE  
GRADIENT WILL SQUEEZE OUT AVAILABLE MOISTURE ACROSS CENTRAL PORTIONS  
OF THE STATE SATURDAY MORNING AND POSSIBLY INTO THE AFTERNOON. BRISK  
SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP DURING THE LATE MORNING AT MOST  
TAF SITES AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE DAY. A LINE OF STRONG TO PERHAPS  
SEVERE STORMS IS LIKELY ACROSS EASTERN NM SATURDAY AFTERNOON,  
RESULTING IN AREAS OF IFR-LIFR CIGS AND VSBYS AT KTCC AND KROW.
