.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1227 PM CDT SAT MAY 23 2015

THE NEXT 24 HOURS IS A VERY TRICKY FORECAST PERIOD. BOTTOM LINE IS
ALL TERMINALS WILL EXPERIENCE IFR GIGS AT TIMES GENERALLY
BEGINNING MID-AFTERNOON TODAY. IFR VIS IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION
AS PRECIPITATION PICKS UP LATER TONIGHT. DON`T THINK AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF RAINFALL IS OUT OF THE QUESTION, WHICH IS WHY SHOWERS
STAY IN THE FORECAST. THE POSSIBILITY OF A PERIOD OF THUNDERSTORMS
IN THE LOCAL AREAS DOES SET UP THIS EVENING WITH THE BETTER WINDOW
FOR INSTABILITY. VERY LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD, THE CONDITIONS
SHOULD BEGIN TO SHOW SOME IMPROVEMENT, BUT HAVE CHOSEN TO NOT ADD
ANOTHER LINE IN FOR NOW AS THIS WILL BE THE VERY TAIL END OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD AND WILL NEED FURTHER EVALUATION AT THE NEXT
FORECAST UPDATE.
