...Update to Aviation Section...

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Friday)
Issued at 239 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

The weather will be mostly quiet for the rest of the afternoon and
tonight. The only thing to watch for is the possibility of fog
development...especially areas that saw rainfall this morning.
Temperatures will be close to the crossover temperatures later
this evening and tonight. Will mention at least patchy fog tonight
but could be a little more widespread than that. Just something to
watch for trends this evening.

Upper level high pressure builds in for Friday into early Saturday
with above average temperatures in the 80s and a little more
sunshine. Clouds will increase late in the day on Saturday with
the advancing cold front.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Thursday)
Issued at 239 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

There are no changes in the forecast thinking for this weekend and
into next week. A cold front will move through the area Saturday
night into early Sunday morning. The main energy of the trough
will miss the area to the northeast and the leftover moisture from
the tropical system affecting the southwestern U.S. will stay

A broken line of showers and storms will develop along and ahead
of the front Saturday night and end from north to south early
Sunday morning. No severe weather expected. Skies will clear by
Sunday afternoon. Canadian high pressure will keep the weather
pattern seasonable and dry for the early and middle part of next
week just in time for the beginning of Autumn early next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Friday Evening)
Issued at 640 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

Stratus and the potential for stratus build down are the primary
forecast concerns tonight. A stratus deck has lingered across the
area much of today. This will continue to slowly expand with time
and build down to MVFR by late this evening and IFR overnight. It
looks as though we remain mixy enough to prevent a fog situation,
but this will need to be closely monitored, especially at BBG. Any
stratus/fog will lift/burn off Friday morning with VFR conditions
expected from late morning onward.
