AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z THURSDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1232 PM CDT WED MAY 20 2015

EXPECT SLIGHT IMPROVEMENTS TO RATHER FREQUENT IFR CIGS IN NEXT FEW
HOURS GIVEN TYPICAL DIURNAL TRENDS AND UPSTREAM OBS, THOUGH
CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH. TIMING OF STRATUS EXIT ALSO DIFFICULT, BUT
GUIDANCE SIMILAR WITH A DELAYED EXIT FROM EARLIER EXPECTATIONS. AM
NOT TOO WORRIED ABOUT FG DEVELOPMENT AROUND 11Z AT THIS POINT
WITH SOME BOUNDARY LAYER MIXING OCCURING.
