MVFR CEILINGS HAVE BEEN SLOW TO WORK INTO THE TAF SITES THIS
MORNING. MOST OF THE GUIDANCE IS SHOWING MVFR CEILINGS THROUGH THE
ENTIRE PERIOD THOUGH. OBSERVATIONS SHOW A MAJORITY OF THESE
CEILINGS DOWN IN SE KS, BUT PROGRESSING NORTHWARD. THERE IS A SLIGHT
CHANCE FOR BREAKS IN THE STRATUS THIS AFTERNOON FOR BRIEF PERIODS.
OTHERWISE TONIGHT THE CEILINGS SHOULD LOWER ALTHOUGH TIMING OF
POSSIBLE IFR IS NOT CERTAIN. THE BETTER CHANCES FOR IFR APPEARS TO
BE AT MHK. ALSO, FOG MAY DEVELOP WITH DECREASING DEW POINT
DEPRESSIONS ESPECIALLY LATE IN THE PERIOD.
