AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z THURSDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 529 PM CST WED DEC 24 2014

CURRENTLY THE STRATUS CLEARING LINE REMAINS ON TRACK TO BRING VFR
CONDITIONS TO ALL TAF SITES. KMHK IS CLEAR AND WILL STAY THAT WAY.
KTOP AND KFOE WILL BE IN THE CLEAR BY 02Z. EXPECT WINDS TO BE THE
MAIN AREA OF CONCERN BUT GUSTY FROM THE SOUTH ON CHRISTMAS DAY.
THE ONLY REAL AREA OF UNCERTAINTY AT THIS POINT WILL BE THE
POSSIBILITY OF LLWS OVER THE KTOP/KFOE TERMINALS BY ABOUT 10Z IN
THE MORNING. HAVE NOT ADDED THIS FOR NOW DUE TO UNCERTAINTY IN THE
WINDS FORECAST BY THE MODEL. WILL HAVE TO EVALUATE THE NEW DATA
WITH THE 0Z MODEL RUN.
