    (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
    Issued at 1118 PM CST Sun Nov 19 2017
    
    Looking on satellite to the northwest you see what we will be
    dealing with for much of the day Monday, BKN-OVC clouds between
    150 and 200. A cold front will be blasting through the AXN area at
    the end of the TAF period. Being ahead of the front much of this
    period, we'll be dominated by southwest winds. Post FROPA, there
    will be potential for some big NW wind gusts, likely up around 40
    kts, but speeds like that are lurking for the end of the 12z TAF
    period.
    
    KMSP...High confidence in the TAF. We may have some 2k-4k ft cigs
    approaching MSP by 12z Tue, but looks like they do not really
    materialize until the sun comes up Tuesday morning.
    
    /OUTLOOK FOR KMSP/
    TUE...Chc MVFR cigs in morning. Winds NW 15-20G30-35 kts.
    WED...VFR. Winds SW 5-10 kts.
    THU...VFR. Winds NW to W 5kts.
