-- Changed Discussion --
The main concern for the 12z TAF package will be the chances of TSRA affecting terminals today, and the possibility for either reduced flight categories due to fog and/or low clouds at sites later tonight. The favored areas for convection today will be in the higher terrain of the mountains initially, but expect some drift into lower elevations this afternoon and evening. Whether storms will affect any given terminal is not concrete, so left it with just a mention of VCTS at all sites to cover it for now. For the low clouds/fog chances for tonight, I went with a persistence forecast there and will just advertise SCT025 towards the end of the period at KCHA, and will go with 5SM at KTRI as MOS guidance is strongly hinting at lower vsby there.
