.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1113 AM CST FRI FEB 5 2016

VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST DUE TO DRY LOW LEVELS IN
THE ATMOSPHERE. MAIN CONCERN IS ONCE THE MID CLOUDS CLEAR TO THE
EAST OVERNIGHT, FORECAST SOUNDINGS TRY TO SATURATE THE LOW LEVELS
DUE TO RADIATIONAL COOLING. THE NAM IS MOST AGGRESSIVE AND HAS A
HISTORY OF OVERDOING THE BOUNDARY LAYER SATURATION. SINCE THERE
ISN`T EXPECTED TO BE ANY MOISTURE ADVECTION OVERNIGHT AND THERE
HASN`T BEEN FOG OR STRATUS THE LAST COUPLE MORNINGS, THINK THE NAM
IS AN OUTLIER AND WILL KEEP A VFR FORECAST AT THIS TIME.
