.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SATURDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1146 PM CDT FRI SEP 19 2014

VISIBILITY IS EXPECTED TO DECREASE THROUGH 12Z ALTHOUGH MUCH BETTER
THAN PREVIOUS NIGHTS AS PERSISTENT SSW WINDS AND MID CLOUDS SHOULD
KEEP VIS ABOVE 3SM. FOE MAY HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FOR BRIEF IFR
VIS BETWEEN 09Z AND 12Z, WHILE MHK SEEMS LIKELY TO REMAIN VFR AND
PERHAPS APPROACH MVFR BY 12Z. WINDS MAY GUST A BIT BETWEEN 14Z AND
16Z BUT SHOULD BECOME STEADY IN THE 11-15 KT RANGE BY LATE
MORNING. A FRONT WILL APPROACH TAF SITES BY AROUND 22Z WITH
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS POTENTIALLY DEVELOPING. DO NOT EXPECT
WIDESPREAD COVERAGE, BUT ALL TAF SITES WILL SEE A CHANCE OF TS
MAINLY BETWEEN 22Z AND 02Z.
