    (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
    Issued at 559 PM MDT Wed Mar 29 2023
    The Denver cyclone continues to bring northerly to northeasterly
    flow at all terminals. This pattern will persist until 05-07Z where
    wind speeds will decrease near 5-7kts. Expecting a west to
    southwesterly flow overnight as incoming moisture arrives for the
    mountains. Another challenge tonight would be low clouds entering
    KDEN and KBJC due to saturated lower levels. There is higher
    confidence in this outcome starting near 06Z where cloud decks
    could reach as low as 2-4k ft. It is possible a low IFR deck could
    occur at KDEN mainly between 12-15Z with the southwestern wind
    direction. Additionally, wind speeds will increase Thursday
    afternoon first at KAPA then KBJC and KDEN. Although models have
    wind gusts between 25-30 mph, it possible for all terminals to
    receive wind gusts up to 30-40 mph through 01Z.
