.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z TUESDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1238 PM CDT MON MAY 25 2015

THIS FORECAST PERIOD IS ANOTHER TRICKY SETUP. CLOUD COVER SHOULD
HELP LIMIT CONVECTION, HOWEVER, THERE IS A GOOD LIKELIHOOD THAT
SOME CONVECTION DOES DEVELOP MAINLY FROM CENTRAL KS INTO
NORTHEASTERN KS LATER THIS AFTERNOON. THIS COULD IMPACT THE
TERMINALS BUT LEFT VCTS FOR NOW. ANY ACTIVITY SHOULD END SHORTLY
AFTER SUNSET THIS EVENING. IN THE MEANTIME, GOOD CONFIDENCE THAT
WINDS WILL CONTINUE OUT OF THE SOUTH AND REMAIN GUSTY AS THERE HAS
BEEN SOME DECENT MIXING TAKING PLACE. THE SECOND HALF OF THE TAF
PERIOD SHOULD BE MORE SETTLED, BUT STILL A MINOR CHANCE OF MORNING
STORMS PERHAPS OVER NORTH CENTRAL KS INTO NE.
