AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SATURDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1152 AM CST FRI NOV 21 2014

MVFR/IFR CONDITIONS DOMINATE THE ENTIRE PERIOD.  CURRENT MVFR
CONDITIONS WITH DRIZZLE ARE EXPECTED TO HOLD ON UNTIL 20Z WHEN IFR
CEILINGS/MVFR VISBYS MOVE NORTHWARD INTO THE AREA.  FROM HERE, DENSE
FOG IS EXPECTED THIS EVENING THROUGH THE REST OF THE PERIOD.  WITH
THIS, LIGHT DRIZZLE IS STILL LIKELY UP TO 06Z AS THERE IS PERSISTENT
LIFT PRESENT THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT.  INTRUDING DRY AIR FROM THE SW
SHOULD HELP TO IMPROVE CEILINGS TOWARD THE END OF THE PERIOD,
HOWEVER THE CONFIDENCE IN EXACT TIMING OF THIS IMPROVEMENT IS LOW.
