.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 12Z TAFS THROUGH 12Z WEDNESDAY MORNING)
ISSUED AT 604 AM CDT TUE MAY 31 2016

IT APPEARS THE MODELS ARE OVERDOING THE BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE.
EXCEPT FROM SOME FOG OVER SOUTHEAST KS WHERE SKIES HAVE BEEN CLEAR
FOR MUCH OF THE NIGHT, AREA OBS SHOW VFR CONDITIONS NEAR AND
UPSTREAM OF THE TERMINALS. THEREFORE WILL MAINTAIN A VFR FORECAST
TODAY. SCATTERED CONVECTION IS EXPECTED TO REDEVELOP OVER EASTERN
KS THIS AFTERNOON. COVERAGE DOES NOT LOOK WIDESPREAD ENOUGH TO
MENTION MORE THEN VCTS. IF A STORM WHERE TO IMPACT THE TERMINALS,
VSBY WOULD LIKELY BE RESTRICTED TEMPORARILY. GREATEST UNCERTAINTY
IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN OVERNIGHT SINCE MODELS HAVE DONE POORLY THIS
MORNING. MODELS ARE SLOW TO ADVECT DRYER AIR SOUTH AND WINDS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIGHT. SO THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME FOG
AND/OR LOW CLOUDS. HAVE OPTED TO KEEP A VFR FORECAST AND LET
LATER SHIFTS REEVALUATE THE POTENTIAL.
