.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z WEDNESDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 647 PM CDT TUE SEP 1 2015

VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD. THERE IS THE
POTENTIAL FOR SOME ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
TO CLIP THE TAF SITES LATE OVERNIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING,
HOWEVER CONFIDENCE IN THE LOCATION OF ANY OF THESE ISOLATED
SHOWERS IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO WARRANT A MENTION IN THE TAFS AT
THIS TIME, BUT WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS POTENTIAL. WITH THE
LOW- LEVEL JET AXIS CENTERED OVER CENTRAL KS TONIGHT, THERE IS THE
POTENTIAL FOR SOME BRIEF LOW-LEVEL WIND SHEAR CONCERNS, ESPECIALLY
NEAR KMHK AS IT IS LOCATED CLOSER TO THIS INCREASING LOW-LEVEL
JET. CANNOT RULE OUT THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME BORDERLINE LOW-LEVEL
WIND SHEAR CONCERNS NEAR KTOP/KFOE SO WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR
THIS POTENTIAL AS WELL. OTHERWISE, EXPECT INCREASING SOUTHERLY
WINDS BY WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
