.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1238 PM CDT FRI MAY 22 2015

LIGHT RAIN WILL CONTINUE TO DISSIPATE THIS AFTERNOON. THERE HAVE
BEEN SOME VERY LIGHT SPRINKLES NEAR KTOP/KFOE, BUT JUST
MAINTAINING VCSH AT THIS TIME SINCE THE IMPACTS TO THE TERMINALS
ARE EXPECTED TO BE MINIMAL. STILL VFR THROUGHOUT THE TAF PERIOD
WITH OVERCAST CIGS MORE HIGH BASED. THE NEXT PERIOD OF SHOWERS IS
LOW CONFIDENCE ON TIMING AS THEY HAVE YET TO DEVELOP, BUT THE
LIKELY SCENARIO WILL BE EARLY MORNING HOURS AFTER 8Z AT KMHK AND A
BIT LATER NEAR KTOP/KFOE. THESE SHOULD ALSO CLEAR OUT AFTER ONLY A
FEW HOURS FROM WEST TO EAST AND BE LARGELY OVER BY 15Z. NOT
EXPECTED ANYTHING TO CAUSE LESS THAN VFR AT THIS POINT THOUGH.
