.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z TUESDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1145 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014

EXPECT IMPROVING CONDITIONS GRADUALLY OVER THE FIRST 6HRS OF THE
TAF PERIOD. CONFIDENCE IS HIGH REGARDING THE OVERALL OUTCOME, BUT
THERE MAY BE SOME TIMING VARIATIONS. THE MAIN UNCERTAINTY WILL BE
IN THE LAST HALF OF THE TAF PERIOD WITH SOME WRAP AROUND CLOUD
COVER AND MIST ASSOCIATED WITH THE MAIN LOW OFF TO THE NORTH OF
THE AREA. KMHK DOES REFLECT THIS IDEA CURRENTLY, BUT KTOP AND KFOE
HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT FOR NOW SINCE THIS MAY HAPPEN NEAR THE END OF
THE TAF PERIOD OR EARLY INTO THE NEXT TAF PERIOD.
