AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1232 PM CDT SAT MAY 30 2015

LARGE PLUME OF MVFR CIGS ACROSS EASTERN KS, MO, IA, AND NE IS
LIKELY TO CONTINUE TO IMPACT TAF SITES THROUGH SUNRISE ON SUNDAY.
THE MAIN UNCERTAINTIES LIE IN POTENTIAL FOR LOCAL THINNING OF THE
CLOUD DECK WITH LOCALIZED SCATTERING THIS EVENING (BEST CHANCE AT
MHK), AND ALSO SOME CHANCE FOR CIGS TO FALL BELOW 1000 FT (BEST
CHANCE AT FOE). FOR NOW, HAVE GONE WITH A PERSISTENT MVFR FORECAST
THROUGH 14Z-16Z AT ALL SITES.
