.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z FRIDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1135 PM CDT THU OCT 23 2014

MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW ENOUGH OF A PRESSURE GRADIENT TO KEEP SOME
WIND AT THE SURFACE THROUGH THE MORNING. THINK THIS ALONG WITH HIGH
CIRRUS OVERHEAD MAY BE ENOUGH TO KEEP THE FOG LIGHT AND VSBY MVFR.
THE EXCEPTION IS MHK WHERE WINDS HAVE GONE CALM. THERE COULD BE A
BRIEF PERIOD OF IFR VSBY BUT THINK THIS WOULD BE TEMPORARY. WITH
MIXING AND INSOLATION, THE BOUNDARY LAYER SHOULD MIX OUT BY LATE
MORNING LEADING TO VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH THE REST OF THE PERIOD.
