THE LIGHT RADAR RETURNS WEST OF A GAINESVILLE TO WEATHERFORD TO
HAMILTON LINE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE EAST. MINERAL WELLS REPORTED
7SM -RA WITH A TRACE OF PRECIPITATION RECORDED WHEN THE LIGHT RAIN

.AVIATION...
/ISSUED 645 PM CDT WED OCT 22 2014/
/00Z TAFS/

CONCERNS...SMALL CHANCES FOR SHOWERS AROUND THE METROPLEX
OVERNIGHT BUT CHANCES ARE TOO LOW TO MENTION IN THE TAF.

AN AREA OF LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN CURRENTLY EXTENDS ACROSS
NORTHWEST TO CENTRAL TEXAS...FROM WICHITA FALLS TO BRECKENRIDGE
TOWARD KERRVILLE. THIS AREA OF RAIN HAS BEEN SLOWLY MOVING EAST
BUT IS EXPECTED TO DISSIPATE THIS EVENING BEFORE REACHING THE TAF
SITES. IT IS POSSIBLE BRIEF LIGHT RAIN COULD REACH KFTW AND/OR
KAFW BEFORE DISSIPATING BUT WILL NOT MENTION -RA IN THE TAFS THIS
EVENING.

AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL PASS ACROSS THE REGION TONIGHT AND
EARLY THURSDAY MORNING...WITH THE BEST LIFT ASSOCIATED WITH THE
TROUGH OCCURRING NEAR AND NORTH OF THE RED RIVER. HAVE REMOVED THE
MENTION OF VCSH FROM THE TAFS AS CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH
THAT SHOWERS WILL IMPACT THE DFW TAF AIRPORTS TONIGHT. AN ISOLATED
SHOWER IS POSSIBLE BETWEEN 09-15Z BUT SHOULD BE BRIEF.
OTHERWISE...VFR WILL PREVAIL WITH LIGHT WINDS FROM THE EAST TO
SOUTH-SOUTHEAST. SPEEDS WILL REMAIN LESS THAN 10 KTS. A MIX OF
CLOUDS BETWEEN 5 TO 25 KFT WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE PERIOD.
