.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z SATURDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 518 AM CST FRI DEC 19 2014

UNCERTAINTY HINGS MAINLY ON WHAT THE CIGS WILL DO. HAVE CONTINUED
WITH THE PREV FORECAST IDEA OF CIGS GRADUALLY IMPROVING ABOVE 1
KFT THIS AFTERNOON. HAVE TIMED THIS WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE
SURFACE RIDGE AXIS, THINKING SOUTHERLY WINDS AROUND 5KT COULD AID
IN BOUNDARY LAYER MIXING AND CAUSE THE CIGS TO LIFT. SINCE NONE OF
THE FORECAST SOUNDINGS MIX OUT THE LOW LEVEL INVERSION THIS
AFTERNOON, THINK IFR CIGS ARE LIKELY TO RETURN OVERNIGHT.
