AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z MONDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1245 PM CDT SUN MAY 24 2015

TODAY AND EARLY EVENING, THERE ARE A COUPLE MID-LEVEL SHORTWAVES
THAT WILL IMPACT THE TAF SITES. MUCH OF THIS ACTIVITY WILL BE IN
THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY DEVELOPING WHICH COULD BRING SOME PERIODS OF
LOW END MVFR CIGS/VIS TO THE TERMINALS. OUTSIDE OF THIS, THERE ARE
SOME SPOTTY AREAS OF LIGHT SHOWERS RIGHT NOW. NOT COMPLETELY
CONFIDENT ANY OF THESE WILL IMPACT THE TERMINALS. THEREFORE, HAVE
LEFT ONLY VCSH FOR BOTH THE AFTERNOON AND THEN AGAIN A CHANCE IN
THE EARLY MORNING. LOWER CONFIDENCE ON THE MORNING SHOWERS. BUT AGAIN,
GENERALLY EXPECTING VFR OUTSIDE OF SOME BRIEF PERIODS WITH THE THUNDERSTORMS.
