    (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning)
    Issued at 340 AM MST Wed Feb 19 2020
    Timing of the stratus and its height will be a little tricky this
    morning. There's no distinct surge but we should see stratus
    spread back into the Denver area airports 12Z-16Z as Denver
    Cyclone develops and northerly winds advect the stratus in.
    Heights may vary between 1000 and about 3000 feet, but little
    risk of fog given relatively high T/Td spreads. Could see a couple
    flurries develop once the stratus moves in, but most of the light
    snow should hold off until upslope deepens behind a cold front
    toward mid day. That will also increase north/northeast winds with
    gusts to around 20 knots. Light snow expected to become more
    widespread by 22Z-00Z and then continue til about 06Z. Total
    accumulations are expected to be around 1-2 inches since moisture
    is rather limited, with the higher amounts toward KBJC and KAPA.
    Clearing expected 09Z-13Z as winds turn light southerly.
