.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SUNDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 539 PM CST SAT NOV 22 2014

THIS TAF PERIOD WILL REMAIN CHALLENGING MUCH LIKE THE PREVIOUS
ONE. CIGS/VIS CONTINUE TO HINDER SOME OPS AT ALL TERMINALS.
IFR/LIFR CONDITIONS ARE A STRONG POSSIBILITY DURING THE OVERNIGHT
HOURS AFFECTING ALL TERMINALS. CONFIDENCE IN EXACT TIMING IS LOW,
BUT STRONG LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL REMAIN IN PLAY WITH A FAVORABLE
SETUP OTHERWISE. THERE IS A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY, ALBEIT SMALL
WITH SOME UNCERTAINTY, FOR SOME GENERAL ELEVATED CONVECTION TO TAKE
PLACE WITH WEAK LIFT AFTER THE 0900Z TIME FRAME FROM KMHK THEN
BUILDING EAST INTO THE KTOP/KFOE TERMINALS. THE LARGEST CHANGE
WITH THIS TAF PERIOD WILL COME NEAR THE END WITH A FRONTAL SYSTEM
CAUSING A SHIFT IN WINDS THAT WILL BE GUSTY FROM THE NORTHWEST BUT
WITH A TREND SUGGESTING IMPROVING CIGS/VIS. A SMALL POSSIBILITY OF
A RAIN/SNOW MIX WILL BEGIN TO SHOW UP NEAR KMHK NEAR THE END OF
THE PERIOD LATE SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
