AVIATION...KSLC
 
PRIMARILY VFR CONDITIONS EXPECTED. SOUTHEAST  
WINDS WILL TRANSITION TO LIGHT NORTHERLY WINDS BETWEEN 21Z AND 23Z.  
LIGHT SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL COME BACK AROUND 02Z. CIGS WILL CONTINUE  
TO DROP, AROUND 6KFT TO 7KFT, TO POTENTIALLY HAVE MOUNTAIN  
OBSCURATION OCCUR. BEST TIME FOR THIS TO OCCUR IS BETWEEN 12Z FRIDAY  
AND 00Z SATURDAY. LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE BETWEEN 14Z  
AND 21Z. THIS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE LOWERED CIGS HAS A SMALL  
CHANCE OF HAVING CONDITIONS DROP TO MVFR.    
REST OF UTAH AND SOUTHWEST WYOMING
 
SOME LOW LYING VALLEYS ACROSS  
THE CWA WILL SEE FOGGY CONDITIONS WHICH COULD LEAD TO IFR OR LIFR  
FLIGHT CATEGORIES. THIS IS EXPECTED TO LAST UNTIL THE MID-MORNING.  
SNOW WILL MOVE INTO NORTHERN UTAH AND SOUTHWEST WYOMING FRIDAY  
MORNING AND LAST UNTIL LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON/EARLY FRIDAY EVENING.  
THIS SNOW, ALONG WITH THE LOWERED CIGS IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SNOW,  
COULD RESULT IN LOWERED FLIGHT CATEGORIES. SOUTHERN UTAH IS EXPECTED  
TO BE QUIET. WINDS WILL BE LIGHT AND DIURNAL IN NATURE FOR MOST  
AREAS.

AVIATION
 
FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY  
ISSUED AT 1029 AM MST FRI DEC 9 2022  
WEST OF THE DIVIDE...KBPI/KJAC/KPNA/KRKS TERMINALS.  
SNOW WILL CONTINUE AT KJAC THROUGH AROUND 00Z, WITH THE HEAVIEST  
SNOW AND GREATEST TERMINAL IMPACTS EXPECTED BEFORE 22Z. KPNA AND  
KBPI ARE ALSO LIKELY TO SEE SOME IMPACTS THOUGH TO A LESSER EXTENT  
SO WILL KEEP THE TEMPO GROUPS THERE. THERE IS ALSO A POSSIBILITY FOR  
SNOW IMPACTS AT KRKS THIS AFTERNOON, BUT LOW CONFIDENCE PRECLUDES  
ANYTHING MORE THAN VICINITY SHOWERS AT THIS TIME. SNOW WILL END  
AFTER 03Z, WITH PARTIALLY CLEARING SKIES OVERNIGHT AS THE SYSTEM  
MOVES OUT OF THE AREA. THE NEXT SYSTEM WILL BEGIN PUSHING INTO  
WESTERN WYOMING BY MID SATURDAY MORNING, WITH VICINITY SHOWERS NEAR  
KJAC BY 16Z.  
EAST OF THE DIVIDE...KCOD/KCPR/KLND/KRIW/KWRL TERMINALS.  
TERMINALS WILL REMAIN VFR THROUGH THE PERIOD. GUSTY ARE EXPECTED AT  
KCPR THROUGH THE PERIOD, WITH THE HIGHEST GUSTS THIS AFTERNOON,  
DECREASING AFTER 00Z.  
PLEASE SEE THE AVIATION WEATHER CENTER AND/OR CWSU ZDV AND ZLC FOR  
THE LATEST INFORMATION ON ICING AND TURBULENCE FORECASTS.  
 
CHEYENNE AVIATION DISCUSSION

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)  
ISSUED AT 1040 AM MST FRI DEC 9 2022  
MOSTLY VFR EXPECTED FOR THE FORECAST PERIOD, BUT KRWL COULD SEE  
SOME LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING THAT MAY  
PRODUCE TEMPORARY CIG/VIS REDUCTIONS. CONFIDENCE IN EXACT TIMING  
IS LOW. OTHERWISE, MOSTLY A WIND FORECAST FOR OTHER TERMINALS.  
SOME GUSTY SSW TO WSW WINDS WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON. GUSTS OF  
35 TO 40 KNOTS ARE LIKELY AT KRWL, WITH 25 TO 35 KTS AT KCYS AND  
KLAR. NEBRASKA PANHANDLE TERMINALS CAN EXPECT GUSTS OF AROUND 25  
KNOTS.  
EXPECT SHIFTING WINDS TONIGHT. STRONG WINDS WILL DEVELOP IN THE  
LOWER ATMOSPHERE, BUT HIRES MODELS GENERALLY KEEP THE STRONG WINDS  
JUST ABOVE THE SURFACE AT KLAR AND KCYS. HOWEVER, SOME MOUNTAIN  
WAVE ACTIVITY CAN BE EXPECTED, WHICH WOULD TEMPORARILY BRING GUSTY  
WESTERLIES TO THE GROUND. WHEN WINDS ARE LIGHT AT THE SURFACE,  
EXPECT SIGNIFICANT LLWS. IN THE NEBRASKA PANHANDLE, WINDS WILL  
BECOME W TO WNW LATE THIS EVENING, AND COULD SEE OCCASIONAL GUSTS  
OF 20 TO 25 KNOTS.
