.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z MONDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1125 AM CST SUN DEC 21 2014

THE MAIN CHALLENGES FOR THE TAF PERIOD WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE
CIG/VIS CATEGORIES. IFR IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST DURING THE FIRST
HALF OF THE PERIOD. WINDS WILL BE FAIRLY STEADY BUT THERE IS
POTENTIAL FOR SOME GUSTS INTO THE MID 20 MPH RANGE AS WE SEE SOME
DIRECTIONAL CHANGES COME INTO PLAY. SOME UNCERTAINTY REMAINS WITH
LIGHT AREAS OF DRIZZLE ALONG WITH POTENTIAL FOR LIGHT RAIN. BUT
FOR NOW, JUST KEEPING MENTION OF DRIZZLE. LOWER CONFIDENCE WITH
THE ACTUAL CIG/VIS REMAINS WITH THESE AREAS AS WELL, BUT GENERALLY
IMPROVING CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR THE END OF THE TAF PERIOD.
