.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 06Z TAFS THROUGH 06Z SUNDAY NIGHT)
ISSUED AT 1127 PM CDT SAT APR 18 2015

SCT SHOWERS CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AHEAD OF THE MAIN CLUSTER OF
SHOWERS OF ISOLATED THUNDER BETWEEN KMHK AND KTOP/KFOE. INITIAL
MVFR CONDITIONS THAT ACCOMPANIED A WESTERLY WIND SHIFT IMPROVE TO
VFR UNTIL THE MAIN CLUSTER ARRIVES NEAR 08Z AT KTOP/KFOE.
CONDITIONS MAY TEMPORARILY FALL TO MVFR WITHIN THE HEAVIER RAIN BANDS
HOWEVER TRENDS SHOW CIGS IMPROVING TO VFR AS ACTIVITY WEAKENS AND
BECOMES MORE SCATTERED. WITH THE CLOUD DECK LIFTING TO NEAR 10 KFT
BEHIND THE SHOWERS, A SATURATED SFC WITH LIGHT WINDS AFT 09Z ARE
TRENDING TOWARDS PATCHY FOG DEVELOPING AT SITES. WILL NEED TO
MONITOR SINCE MULTIPLE FACTORS MAY CONTRIBUTE TO VISIBILITY BEING
LOWER IN THE IFR CATEGORY. MAY SEE A BRIEF PERIOD OF VFR
CONDITIONS BY MID MORNING BEFORE ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED THUNDER FORMS ALONG AND AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT, FALLING
BACK TO MVFR IN THE AFTERNOON. NORTHWEST WINDS BECOME GUSTY IN
EXCESS OF 25 KTS LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING.
