.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z THURSDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1250 PM CDT WED MAY 6 2015

MAIN AREA OF SHOWERS HAVE LIFTED NORTH OF TAF SITES AND ANOTHER
AREA IN EAST CENTRAL KS AT MID DAY WILL LIKELY MISS THEM TO THE
EAST. STILL, POPUP SHOWER IS A POSSIBILITY FOR THIS AFTERNOON,
JUST NOT LIKELY ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN TAF. MVFR CEILINGS TO SOUTH
OF I70 SHOULD BECOME VFR BEFORE THIS AFTERNOON. CHANCE OF
THUNDERSTORMS RE-ENTERS THE PICTURE LATE THIS EVENING OR OVERNIGHT
BUT TIMING IS A CHALLENGE.
