...SHAWNEE COUNTY...

.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z THURSDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 619 AM CDT WED MAY 20 2015

MVFR/IFR CONDITIONS LOOK TO PERSIST THROUGH A MAJORITY OF THE TAF
PERIOD. MOST OF THE RAIN HAS ENDED ALTHOUGH AN ISOLATED SHOWER CAN
NOT BE RULED OUT THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON. THESE SHOWERS SHOULD
NOT REALLY AFFECT THE FLIGHT CONDITIONS. MODEL FORECASTS HAVE
CEILINGS AROUND 1 KFT MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO PREDICT THE CATEGORY.
THERE ARE SIGNS THE CLOUDS TRY TO SCATTER OUT TONIGHT AND FOG
COULD ALSO BE AN ISSUE LATE IN THE PERIOD.
