.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1219 PM CDT TUE SEP 2 2014

THE IFR/MVFR STRATUS FROM THIS MORNING IS GRADUALLY SCATTERING
OUT AND WILL PUSH FURTHER SOUTH OF THE KTOP/KFOE EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON. WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT AND VARIABLE INTO THIS EVENING
AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SHIFTS OVER THE REGION. THERE IS THE
POTENTIAL FOR SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP NEAR THE TAF
SITES OVERNIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING AS A WARM FRONT LIFTS
NORTHWARD INTO THE REGION. HAVE JUST A MENTION OF VCTS AT THIS
TIME DUE TO UNCERTAINTY STILL IN THE TIMING AND LOCATION OF THIS
ACTIVITY. SOME MODELS ARE SUGGESTING THAT VIS MAY BE REDUCED TO
MVFR/IFR CONDITIONS AT TIMES WITH THESE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS.
DID NOT INCLUDE WITH THIS TAF ISSUANCE, BUT WILL CONTINUE TO
MONITOR THIS POTENTIAL IN FUTURE UPDATES.
