.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z SATURDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 502 AM CST FRI FEB 12 2016

STRATUS HAS EVENTUALLY WORKED ITS WAY INTO THE TERMINALS. AM A
LITTLE UNSURE HOW LONG STRATUS WILL REMAIN IN PLACE AS THE STRATUS
HAS STRUGGLED TO MOVE AS FAR SOUTH AND WEST AS MODELS FORECAST.
HOWEVER SATELLITE SHOWS A PRETTY GOOD FETCH OF STRATUS UPSTREAM.
WITH THIS IN MIND, HAVE HELD ONTO THE LOW CLOUDS LONGER INTO THE
DAY. THINK THE STRATUS WILL EVENTUALLY SCATTER OUT AND VFR
CONDITIONS SHOULD PREVAIL ONCE IT DOES AS LOW LEVEL DRY AIR
ADVECTION PERSISTS INTO TONIGHT.
