.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z THURSDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 619 AM CDT WED SEP 17 2014

BORDERLINE IFR STRATUS HAS ADVECTED INTO THE AREA FROM SOUTH
CENTRAL KS IN RESPONSE TO A WARM FRONT LIFTING NORTHWARD. THE
VISIBILITIES ARE BORDERLINE MVFR ALTHOUGH DO NOT EXPECT THEM TO
DROP ANY FURTHER. THE MAIN CHALLENGE WITH THIS ISSUANCE IS TIMING
ON WHEN THE STRATUS AND FOG WILL LIFT. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE
THIS STRATUS DECK COULD LINGER INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS. AFTER
SUNSET SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS AND FOG COULD DEVELOP AGAIN BUT TOO
MUCH UNCERTAINTY TO ADD ANY DETAILS.
