.AVIATION...

VFR conditions with gusty west winds will prevail through this
evening, prior to a cold front which should reach KCNM and KHOB by
07Z, and KFST by 12Z Tuesday. Winds will shift to the north
behind the front, remaining strong and gusting to 25-35KT through
the forecast period. Along and behind the cold front, showers are
also expected, thus have added prevailing -SHRA to the going TAFs
for KHOB, KMAF, KINK, and KPEQ where confidence is greatest.
Forecast temperature profiles for KHOB lend credence to the idea
that snow will mix in with the rain, and thus, have covered this
with a TEMPO from 11-15Z for now. While a -RASN mix cannot be
ruled out for KMAF, KINK, and KPEQ, confidence precludes mention
in the TAF at this time.
