AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z SUNDAY MORNING)  
ISSUED AT 449 AM MDT SAT JUL 29 2017  
SOUTHERLY UPSLOPE FLOW FOR THE COS AREA WILL KEEP LIFR CIGS/VIS IN  
FOG THROUGH THE MORNING WITH AREAS OF -RA. KPUB IS MORE PROBLEMATIC  
AS EXTENSIVE HIGH CLOUDINESS AND WEAKER SFC WINDS HAVE KEPT  
CONDITIONS VFR. IF SUFFICIENT CLEARING OCCURS TOWARDS MORNING, THEN  
A BRIEF WINDOW OF MVFR CIGS/VIS WITH BR WILL BE POSSIBLE, BUT THIS  
IS LOOKING LESS LIKELY WITH TIME AS CLOUD COVER ALOFT HAS BEEN  
PERSISTENT. KALS SHOULD CONTINUE TO SEE VFR CIGS THROUGH THE  
MORNING.  
CIGS SHOULD BREAK BY AROUND 18Z FOR KCOS WITH VFR CONDITIONS  
EXPECTED AT ALL THREE TERMINALS. THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER  
THE MOUNTAINS THEN SPREAD INTO THE ADJACENT PLAINS AFFECTING THE TAF  
SITES BY LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING. CHANCE FOR  
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY IS SUFFICIENT TO CARRY A PROB30 IN THE 12Z TAFS  
AT ALL THREE TERMINALS. LOCAL MVFR TO BRIEF IFR CIGS/VIS WILL BE  
POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGER STORMS TODAY. ERRATIC WIND GUSTS UP TO  
60 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR KCOS AND KPUB SHOULD A STRONGER STORM  
IMPACT THE TERMINALS. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD PULL AWAY TO  
THE EAST DURING THE EVENING HOURS WITH WIDESPREAD MVFR TO LOCAL IFR  
CIGS/VIS DEVELOPING ACROSS THE PLAINS AGAIN TONIGHT. -KT

SHOWERS STRETCHING FROM THE FOUR CORNERS TO K20V WILL CONTINUE TO

MORNING. DESPITE RAIN, VFR CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY TO CONTINUE TO  
PREVAIL, EXCEPT AT KTEX WHERE LIFR CIGS WERE OBSERVED. DAYTIME  
WARMING WILL CAUSE THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP, MAINLY ALONG AND  
SOUTHEAST OF THE LINE MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY. THIS ACTIVITY IS  
LIKELY TO BRING ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND BRIEF MVFR VSBY WITH  
HEAVIER CELLS. CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION AT TAF SITES NORTHWEST OF  
THE LINE ARE UNLIKELY. SHOWERS WILL DIMINISH LATE THIS EVENING AND  
OVERNIGHT, THOUGH KDRO MAY SEE ADDITIONAL SHOWERS LATE.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SATURDAY NIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 1124 PM MDT FRI JUL 28 2017  
UNSETTLED PATTERN WITH MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS  
AND POSSIBLE IMPACTS AT THE TERMINALS CONTINUE TO BE THE MAIN  
CONCERN. ADJUSTMENTS TO NEAR TERM TAFS WERE MADE TO ACCOUNT FOR  
CURRENT TRENDS ON RADAR AND SHORT RANGE GUIDANCE. THERE IS AN  
ADVERTISED LULL IN ACTIVITY AFTER 09Z THROUGH MIDDAY MONDAY BY A  
LOT OF GUIDANCE AND THIS IS WHAT I FAVORED DURING THIS UPDATE.  
A ROUND OF WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
IS ADVERTISED TO SPREAD FROM EASTERN COLORADO INTO KANSAS SATURDAY  
AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING. THERE IS LESS CONFIDENCE FURTHER  
NORTH TOWARDS KMCK, SO I LIMITED THUNDERSTORM MENTION TO KGLD  
DURING THE AFTERNOON/EVENING PERIODS. SUB VFR CONDITIONS CAN'T BE  
RULED OUT, BUT THIS WILL BE MORE LIKELY TIED TO HEAVIER  
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY, AND CONFIDENCE WAS TOO IN DURATION/TIMING  
TO ADD AT THIS TIME.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z SUNDAY MORNING)  
ISSUED AT 600 AM CDT SAT JUL 29 2017  
WEAKENING OVERNIGHT THUNDERSTORM COMPLEX WILL HAVE MINOR IMPACTS  
NEAR GCK/LBL EARLY THIS MORNING AS IT DISSIPATES. BROKEN MID LAYER  
CLOUDS WILL PERSIST MUCH OF THE DAY. SCATTERED CONVECTION IS  
EXPECTED TO REDEVELOP AFTER 18Z, BUT EXACTLY WHERE IS UNCERTAIN.  
LATEST HRRR RUNS SUGGEST STRONG THUNDERSTORMS FROM NEAR GCK TO  
NEAR LBL THIS AFTERNOON, WITH SOME SUPPORT FROM NAM WITH THIS  
GENERAL WESTWARD SOLUTION. TYPICAL OF SUMMER, JUST INCLUDED  
VCTS/CB FOR NOW WITH THE EXPECTATION THAT TEMPO GROUPS WILL BE  
NEEDED AT SOME POINT. THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY  
MORNING, WITH IFR CIGS/VIS IN HEAVY RAIN LIKELY WHERE THEY DO  
DEVELOP. OUTSIDE OF CONVECTION, SE WINDS WILL PREVAIL AT 5-15 KTS  
AT ALL AIRPORTS THROUGH THIS TAF PERIOD.
