.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1224 PM CDT SAT MAY 2 2015

IMPROVING CONDITIONS WILL BE THE TREND FOR THE REST OF TODAY
OUTSIDE OF THE INCREASE IN WINDS. GUSTS ARE LIKELY AS CLOUDS
DISSIPATE AND MIXING TAKES PLACE. WIND SHEAR CONDITIONS COULD BE
PRESENT TOMORROW MORNING WITH THE LLJ INCREASING OVER THE REGION,
BUT DID LEAVE MENTION OUT OF THE TAFS FOR NOW. THERE IS THE
POSSIBILITY ALSO FOR A ROUND OF SHOWERS OR ELEVATED CONVECTION LATE
IN THE TAF PERIOD ASSOCIATED WITH A VORTICITY MAX MOVING OUT OF
THE CENTRAL ROCKIES AFFECTING ALL THE TERMINALS. TIMING ON THIS
WOULD BE UNCERTAIN AT THIS POINT BUT WILL BE SOMETHING TO PAY
ATTENTION TO FOR LONGER TERM PLANNING.
