.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z MONDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1229 PM CDT SUN MAY 3 2015

THE MAIN AVIATION CONCERN FOR THE AFTERNOON WILL BE THE STRONG AND
GUSTY SOUTHERLY WINDS. THESE WILL DIMINISH AROUND SUNSET. WINDS
LIKELY STRONG ENOUGH OVERNIGHT TO MINIMIZE THE POSSIBILITY OF WIND
SHEAR CONDITIONS. WITH THE FRONTAL SYSTEM JUST OFF TO THE NORTH OF
THE TERMINALS, THERE IS SOME SUGGESTION THAT KMHK, KTOP/KFOE
TERMINALS COULD AT LEAST SEE SOME VCSH OR PERHAPS VCTS, BUT THIS
WOULD BE HIGH BASED AND CONFIDENCE IS TO LOW AT THIS POINT TO
CARRY IN THE TAFS. THIS IS SOMETHING TO STAY TUNED TO THOUGH IF
PLANNING TRANSIT TO OR FROM THE TERMINALS.
