.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z TUESDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1134 PM CDT MON SEP 15 2014

CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO POINT TO POSSIBLE GROUND FOG DEVELOPING
AROUND SUNRISE. CONCERNS ARE THE MOISTURE IS VERY SHALLOW AND THERE
COULD BE JUST ENOUGH MIXING OF DRY AIR TO PREVENT FOG. BUT WITH
FORECAST SOUNDINGS SHOWS A NARROW WINDOW WHERE THE BOUNDARY LAYER
DECOUPLES COMBINED WITH MOISTURE FROM THE KS RIVER, THINK THERE IS
A GOOD ENOUGH CHANCE TO KEEP THE TEMPO FOR GROUND FOG. TOP TENDS
TO GO DOWN HARD IF IT FORMS SO CONTINUED WITH IFR VSBY AT TOP,
WITH MVFR VSBY POSSIBLE AT MHK AND FOE. OTHERWISE THE FORECAST
SHOULD BE VFR. LOOKS LIKE ANY ELEVATED STORMS WOULD HOLD OFF UNTIL
LATE IN THE PERIOD OR AFTER 06Z. HOWEVER THINK CLOUDS WILL BE ON
THE INCREASE EARLY IN THE EVENING AND LATER SHIFTS WILL NEED TO
MONITOR WHETHER A CLOUD DECK MOVES IN BELOW 3 KFT.
