.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1235 PM CDT FRI APR 29 2016

MVFR CIGS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE DURATION OF THE TAF PERIOD. AN AREA
OF SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS CENTRAL AND WESTERN
KS WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH NORTHEAST. CURRENT THINKING IS THE
ACTIVITY WILL REACH MHK NEAR 20Z AND THE TOPEKA TERMINALS NEAR
21Z. LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE IS BEGINNING TO HINT AT THE POSSIBILITY
OF IFR CIGS DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. HOWEVER, CONFIDENCE IT TOO
LOW AT THIS POINT AND WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR IN LATER OUTLOOKS.
RAIN IS EXPECTED TO LIFT NORTH OUT OF THE TERMINALS NEAR 13Z,
ALTHOUGH LOW CLOUD COVER MAY PERSIST THROUGH THE END OF THE
PERIOD.
