.AVIATION...

Flight conditions have improved to MVFR/VFR for all TAF sites
except for KHOB and KCNM today, with those sites expected to
improve to VFR within the first hour or so of the forecast period.
VFR conditions are then expected to prevail until late this
evening, when low ceilings and fog will once again settle in,
mainly affecting KMAF, KINK, and KHOB. A strong front approaching
from the west will move through the region overnight tonight and
early Sunday, and while -SHRA/-TSRA is possible mainly after
midnight, uncertainties in coverage preclude mention in current
TAFs. VFR conditions will once again prevail after the front
passes, though strong, gusty west winds in the wake of a front on
Sunday are a concern. Gusts of 30-35KT in the current TAFs are
likely too conservative, but still a good starting point for the
last few hours of the forecast period.
