.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z TUESDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 511 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014

IFR CIGS ARE LIKELY TO PERSIST UNTIL THE SURFACE TROUGH AXIS
PASSES THROUGH THE TERMINALS AND WINDS SHIFT TO THE WEST. THIS
SHOULD BRING IN RELATIVELY DRY AIR AND AN END TO THE LIGHT RAIN.
ONCE THE TROUGH AXIS PASSES, MODELS SHOW THE BOUNDARY LAYER
MOISTURE MIXING OUT LEADING TO A GREATER POTENTIAL FOR VFR
CONDITIONS. THERE ARE SOME TIMING ISSUES BETWEEN THE NAM AND RAP
WITH WHEN LOW CLOUDS MAY MIX OUT. FOR NOW LEANED A LITTLE CLOSER
TO THE QUICKER RAP SINCE THIS LINES UP WELL WITH THE FROPA AND IS
SUPPORTED SOMEWHAT BY THE HRRR.
