.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z TUESDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 621 AM CDT MON MAY 23 2016

DIFFICULT AND RELATIVELY LOW CONFIDENCE TAF THROUGH THE DAY TODAY.
MANY MODELS ARE SUGGESTING THAT MVFR CIGS WILL BUILD INTO TAF
SITES FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD, BUT SEE THE BEST CHANCE FOR MVFR
CIGS TO BE LATER THIS MORNING INTO EARLY AFTERNOON AS AN UPPER
STORM SYSTEM BRINGS RAIN AND STORMS ACROSS TAF SITES. EXPECT SOME
MIXING AS RAIN ENDS WITH CIGS LIKELY SCATTERING AND LIFTING A
BIT. ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS POSSIBLE AFTER 06Z BUT EXACT TIMING
REMAINS IN QUESTION.
