ISSUED AT 551 PM CDT THU MAR 19 2015

FCST CHALLENGE WILL BE TIMING OF CLEARING AND FOG POTENTIAL
OVERNIGHT. SAT TRENDS SUGGEST THAT CIGS WILL GO VFR AT MHK BY 00Z
AND AT TOP/FOE BY 02Z. LIGHT WINDS MAY GO VARIABLE AS THE AREA WILL
BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF VERY WEAK HIGH PRESSURE. IT WOULD APPEAR
THAT SOME PATCHY SHALLOW FOG AT THE LEAST WILL IMPACT THE SITES
AFTER 06Z WITH AIR TEMPS FCST TO FALL BELOW THE CROSS-OVER TEMPS
AND INCREASING HUMIDITY IN THE BOUNDARY LAYER WITH HT SO WILL
INSERT MVFR VIS AND MAY SEE A PERIOD OF IFR FOG AT TOP IN THE 09Z
TO 13Z TIME FRAME TOO.
