AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SATURDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 651 PM CDT FRI AUG 29 2014

LATEST SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS A LONGWAVE TROUGH AXIS JUST WEST OF KTOP.
A LINE OF GENERAL TSRA WILL REMAIN IN THE AREA FOR THE NEXT COUPLE HOURS
WHICH IS MAINLY DIURNALLY DRIVEN AND WILL SUBSIDE AS THE HEAT IS LOST AND
THE TROUGH MOVES THROUGH.  OUTSIDE OF THAT, EXPECT MOSTLY VFR CONDITIONS TO
BE THE MAIN FEATURE.  FOG COULD BE A VERY SMALL FACTOR EARLY IN THE MORNING
BUT IS NOT CURRENTLY IN THE TAF DUE TO UNCERTAINTY AS DRY AIR WILL ADVECT IN
BEHIND THE TROUGH AXIS.  ADDITIONALLY THE AMOUNT OF PREVIOUS MOISTURE HAS BEEN
SOMEWHAT LIMITED.  THE AFTERNOON LATE IN THE TAF PERIOD WILL SEE WINDS START
TO
SHOW A SOUTHERLY INFLUENCE DUE TO THE HIGH SURFACE FEATURE QUICKLY MOVING EAST
OF THE TAF LOCATIONS.
