ISSUED AT 704 PM CDT SAT AUG 29 2015

CLOUDS AND AREAS OF FOG WILL BE THE MAIN FORECAST CHALLENGE OVER
THE NEXT 12 TO 15 HOURS. MOISTURE REMAINS TRAPPED BELOW A STRONG
SUBSIDENT INVERSION ALOFT AT AROUND THE 5000FT LEVEL PER 00Z KTOP
SOUNDING. COULD BE A FEW BREAKS IN THE CLOUD COVER BETWEEN NOW AND
9-10Z, WHICH SHOULD HELP SET THE STAGE FOR POTENTIAL FOG
DEVELOPMENT OR AT LEAST VERY LOW STRATUS AT ALL TERMINALS BETWEEN
THE 10Z AND 15Z TIME FRAMES. THE POTENTIAL TO DIP INTO THE
IFR/LIFR CATEGORIES SEEMS REASONABLE GIVEN THE MOISTURE AND THE
EXPECTATION OF WINDS TO CALM OVERNIGHT. THE GOOD NEWS WILL BE THAT
AFTER 15Z, CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO IMPROVE AND BY THE 18Z TIME
FRAME SKIES SHOULD BEGIN TO TREND TOWARD VFR FOR THE REST OF THE
FORECAST PERIOD.
