.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z FRIDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 450 AM CST THU JAN 29 2015

STRATUS CONTINUES TO FILL IN FROM THE NORTH, AND THINK IT WILL
REMAIN OVER THE TERMINALS FOR MUCH OF THE DAY, UNTIL SUBSIDENCE
FROM A SECOND SHORTWAVE OVERSPREADS THE AREA. FOR THE MOST PART
CIGS SHOULD REMAIN ABOVE 2 KFT. DID LEAN ON THE OPTIMISTIC SIDE BY
MIXING CIGS ABOVE 3 KFT BY NOON BASED ON THE RAP FORECAST
SOUNDINGS. BUT GIVEN HOW EXPANSIVE THE STRATUS IS UPSTREAM, THERE
IS SOME UNCERTAINTY IN WHETHER CIGS WILL LIFT AND WHEN THEY WILL
MIX OUT. GUSTY NORTHWEST AND NORTH WINDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE
DAY UNTIL THE PRESSURE GRADIENT RELAXES TOWARDS SUNSET.
