(06Z TAFS FOR KOFK...KLNK AND KOMA.) ISSUED AT 1041 PM CST THU FEB 4 2016 MID AND HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE TONIGHT. THIS SHOULD LIMIT THE FOG POTENTIAL FOR THE TAF SITES...BUT A BRIEF PERIOD OF LIGHT MVFR FOG IS POSSIBLE EARLY TONIGHT. OTHERWISE GENERALLY WEAK STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA ON FRI MORNING AND WILL LIKELY BRING SOME MVFR CIGS AND A PERIOD OF -SN TO THE KOMA/KOFK TAF SITES IN THE MORNING...AND WILL INCLUDE PREVAILING -SN THERE WITH A TEMPO GROUP IN KLNK. THIS BAND WILL LIKELY MOV OUT BY EARLY AFTN WITH MVFR CIGS CONTG THROUGH THE AFTN/EVNG AT KOMA/KOFK. WE WILL ALSO SEE A CDFNT MOV THRU THE TAF SITES LATE TMRW WITH NW WINDS INCREASING IN THE EVNG AT ALL SITES. MAY SEE ANOTHER BATCH OF -SN AT KOFK/KOMA DURING THE EVNG BUT CONFIDENCE IS TO LOW TO INCLUDE AT THIS TIME.
