.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1150 AM CST SAT FEB 28 2015

MVFR CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON. EXPECT SOME
HEAVIER PERIODS OF SNOW AT LEAST FOR THE EARLY PART OF THE
AFTERNOON WITH THE AREAS OF BEST LIFT AND FORCING. WE COULD SEE
IFR CONDITIONS SIMILAR TO EARLIER WITH THESE BANDS. THIS EVENING,
THE FIRST WAVE WILL HAVE MOVED THROUGH WITH SOME GRADUAL
IMPROVEMENT BEFORE THE SECOND WAVE ARRIVES AROUND MIDNIGHT TIME
FRAME. CONFIDENCE WITH TIMING ON THIS SECOND ROUND IS A LITTLE ON
THE LOW END, BUT MVFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN PLACE
UNTIL AFTER THE FORECAST PERIOD. FOR LONGER TERM PLANNING, CHECK
BACK WITH THE 00Z AND 06Z TAF ISSUANCES FOR UPDATES ON SECOND
ROUND TIMING.
