.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1239 PM CDT SAT APR 23 2016

FOR THE 18Z TAFS, WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE STRONG FROM THE SSE
AND GRADUALLY VEER MORE SOUTHERLY INTO THE EVENING. AN UPPER
TROUGH CONTINUES TO ADVANCE INTO THE REGION OVERNIGHT WHICH COULD
BRING ABOUT LLWS CONDITIONS. WITH BOUNDARY LAYER WINDS NOT
EXPECTED TO CALM TOO MUCH TONIGHT, HAVE LEFT OUT LLWS IN THE TAFS
FOR NOW. THIS WILL BE SOMETHING TO MONITOR THOUGH AND IF WINDS DO
CALM THEN LLWS COULD BE A CONCERN FROM AROUND 6Z TO 13Z TIME
FRAMES. NEAR KMHK THERE COULD BE SOME MORNING ELEVATED TS AND HAVE
HANDLED THIS WITH VCTS FOR NOW AS MORE WIDESPREAD TS ACTIVITY IS
LIKELY TO HOLD OFF UNTIL SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
