.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z MONDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 659 PM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015

THE MAIN FOCUS FOR THE NEXT 24 HOUR PERIOD FOR AVIATION WILL BE
THE FORMATION OF EARLY MORNING FOG AND THE EXTENT/DURATION OF FOG
THAT DOES FORM. WITH NO APPRECIABLE AIR MASS CHANGE AND MORE
CLEARING EARLIER TONIGHT, CONFIDENCE IS GOOD THAT THE PEAK TIMES
FOR FOG WILL BE FROM 9Z TO 15Z. RIGHT NOW, HAVE OPTED TO GO ONLY
VFR, BUT THERE COULD BE TIMES WHERE LOWER VIS/GIG CATEGORIES
PERSIST. THE FACTOR THAT MAY HELP TO MITIGATE HOW WIDESPREAD FOG
IS TONIGHT WILL BE THE WIND AND WHETHER OR NOT IT CALMS COMPLETELY
DOWN. CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE QUICKLY AFTER 15Z THOUGH AND WINDS
WILL PICK UP GENERALLY FROM THE SOUTHEAST.
