/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. 82/JLD
