.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SATURDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1128 PM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014

MAIN CONCERN FOR THE FORECAST PERIOD IS FOG POTENTIAL OVERNIGHT
THROUGH SAT. MORNING. SHALLOW MVFR FOG OCCURRING AT KTOP WILL
LOWER TO IFR AND LIFR AFT 09Z AS PATCHY DENSE FOG SETTLES INTO THE
LOW LYING AREA. KFOE IS MORE MIXED WITH SOUTHWEST WINDS AROUND 6
KTS THROUGH 09Z. SHOULD EXPECT THESE WINDS TO WEAKEN ENOUGH NEAR
THE SURFACE TROUGH AXIS TO DEVELOP PREDOMINANT MVFR VISIBILITIES.
OCCASIONAL IFR CIGS ARE POSSIBLE THROUGH SUNRISE WHERE A TEMPO WAS
INSERTED. KMHK IS MORE UNCERTAIN IN FOG DEVELOPMENT AS LATEST
GUIDANCE IS HINTING AT LOWER DEWPOINT TEMPERATURES JUST NORTH OF
THE TERMINAL. MAY STILL SEE PATCHY MVFR CIGS HOWEVER CONFIDENCE IS
LOW AT THIS POINT. EXPECT FOG TO DISSIPATE BY 15Z WITH LIGHT WINDS
AND VFR CONDITIONS THROUGH REMAINDER OF PERIOD.
