.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SUNDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 622 PM CDT SAT APR 25 2015

MAIN CONCERN IS WITH THE LOWER CEILINGS FROM THE STRATUS DECK
THAT WILL LINGER THROUGH TONIGHT AND MUCH OF THE DAY ON SUNDAY.
LOW-END MVFR CIGS WERE IN PLACE EARLY THIS EVENING AND MODEL
GUIDANCE CONTINUES TO HINT AT SEVERAL HOURS OF IFR CIGS (AND
POSSIBLY EVEN BORDERLINE LIFR CONDITIONS AT TIMES). HOWEVER THERE
IS STILL UNCERTAINTY AMONGST THE MODELS REGARDING THE START TIME
OF THESE IFR CIGS SO WILL NEED TO MONITOR CIG TRENDS THIS EVENING.
GUIDANCE IS IN PRETTY GOOD AGREEMENT WITH CIGS IMPROVING TO MVFR
CONDITIONS BY LATE MORNING/EARLY AFTERNOON BEFORE SCATTERING OUT
TO LOW-END VFR CONDITIONS BY LATE AFTERNOON. WINDS THROUGH THE
PERIOD WILL VEER SLIGHTLY FROM NORTH TO EAST-NORTHEAST.
