(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning) Issued at 627 AM CDT Wed Oct 26 2016 Area of IFR cigs in eastern South Dakota and northeast Nebraska will spread southeast through eastern Nebraska during the morning, then shift to the east in the early afternoon. Areas of fog will also occur through mid morning. KOFK will see a few hours of VLIFR conditions in both cigs and vsbys, with a gradual improvement to MVFR before 18Z. KOMA will likely see MVFR cigs/vsbys during this time, but could briefly go to IFR for a period. Lower cigs are forecast to remain northeast of KLNK, but if they were to affect that TAF site, would expect 14Z to 18Z a period of potential MVFR cigs. VFR conditions are expected by 20Z all sites. More fog potential enters the forecast after 06Z.
