.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z MONDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 645 PM CDT SUN APR 20 2014

INITIAL AREA OF LIGHT PRECIP WEAKENING, AND ADDITIONAL PRECIP
UNLIKELY UNTIL THE MAIN UPPER WAVE NEARS AROUND 06Z. AT THIS POINT
WILL KEEP VFR GOING TO START, BUT WEAKENING WINDS AND INCREASING
LOW LEVEL MOISTURE MAY LEAD TO MVFR VISIBILITIES AND CEILINGS NEAR
SUNRISE. FRONT STILL ON TRACK FOR AROUND 15Z WITH DECREASING
CONFIDENCE IN PRECIP COVERAGE AS IT PASSES. STILL SOME CONCERN FOR
MVFR CEILINGS TO CONTINUE ALONG/BEHIND FRONT AND WILL NEED TO
WATCH THIS AS THIS TIME APPROACHES.
