...SHAWNEE COUNTY...

.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z THURSDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1158 PM CDT WED SEP 17 2014

FOG HAS QUICKLY DEVELOPED AT TOP/FOE, WITH MORE GRADUAL VIS
RESTRICTIONS BUILDING INTO MHK. EXPECT THE LIFR VIS TO BE DOMINANT
THROUGH 14Z AT TOP/FOE, ALTHOUGH IT MAY FLUCTUATE BETWEEN 06Z AND
09Z AS MID CLOUDS MOVE OVERHEAD. THESE CLOUDS SHOULD CLEAR OUT
THOUGH WITH THE FOG PERSISTING. MHK WILL BE MORE HEAVILY
INFLUENCED BY THE MID CLOUD COVER, AND DO NOT EXPECT SUCH LOW VIS
AT MHK FOR THIS REASON...ALTHOUGH A PERIOD OF IFR SEEMS LIKELY
AROUND SUNRISE. VIS WILL IMPROVE AFTER 14Z BUT EXPECT BROKEN
CEILINGS TO REMAIN THROUGH MUCH OF THE MORNING, WITH CIGS RISING
FROM IFR TO MVFR BEFORE SCATTERING OUT.
