.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Friday night)
ISSUED AT 1225 AM CDT FRI APR 25 2014
Relatively quiet aviation pattern will continue over Kansas
tonight into Friday as a ridge of high pressure moves over the
Great Plains. This will bring little to no cloud cover along with
an unlimited visibility over the next 24 hours. Further, increasing
700-500-hPa flow behind this ridge will allow the lee trough to
deepen. This will tighten the pressure gradient with south to
southwest surface winds increasing to around 15 KT by late morning.
