.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z FRIDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 629 AM CDT THU SEP 18 2014

LATEST MODEL GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTING THAT IFR CEILINGS COULD LINGER
THROUGH THE LATE MORNING HOURS. ALTHOUGH THE 12Z SOUNDING AT TOP SHOWS
THAT THE STRATUS DECK IS VERY THIN, AND THE START OF DAYTIME
MIXING SHOULD CLEAR THINGS OUT FAIRLY EASILY. THE LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE IS FORECAST TO REMAIN IN THE AREA, AND WITH NOT MUCH
CHANGE IN THE OVERALL PATTERN WOULD EXPECT PARTLY CLEAR SKIES
DURING THE EVENING HOURS WILL LEAD TO IFR CONDITIONS AGAIN. TIMING
MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED BUT AS OF NOW IFR CONDITIONS APPEAR TO
DEVELOP AROUND MIDNIGHT OR SHORTLY AFTER.
