...06Z Aviation Update...

.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 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday Night)
Issued at 1158 PM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

Patchy low stratus will continue early this morning in and around
the terminals. Best potential for low end MVFR to IFR cigs and vis
will be during the predawn hours this morning, with improvement
then expected from sunrise into the mid morning hours. Winds will
remain out of the south to south east, generally remaining light
throughout the period. Once conditions improve Friday morning, VFR
conditions will then continue through the remainder of the TAF
