.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z WEDNESDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1127 PM CDT TUE MAY 19 2015

DRIER AIR BEHIND THE DEPARTING WAVE HAS ALLOWED THE LOWER CATEGORIES
TO REMAIN WEST OF TERMINALS THUS FAR. SHORT TERM GUIDANCE IS STILL
TRENDING WITH THE SHOWERS WEST OF KMHK TO TRACK EAST THROUGH 11Z.
CONFIDENCE IS DECENT IN MVFR CEILINGS, HOWEVER IFR IS A BIT MORE
UNCERTAIN AT KTOP/KFOE, WITH THE BETTER CHANCES FOR A HEAVIER
SHOWER AND THEREFORE THE LOWER CEILINGS TO IMPACT KMHK. CEILINGS
GRADUALLY RECOVER BACK TO HIGH END MVFR BY THE AFTERNOON AS
NORTHERLY WINDS HOVER NEAR 10 KTS THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD.
