.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z THURSDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1212 PM CDT WED APR 15 2015

AM PRETTY CONFIDENCE THAT CIGS WILL REMAIN ABOVE 2 KFT THIS
AFTERNOON. HOWEVER THEY COULD BOUNCE AROUND 3 KFT FOR SOME TIME.
SATELLITE STARTING TO SHOW CLOUDS THINNING WITH THE BOUNDARY LAYER
DEEPENING PER MHK LATEST OB. THINK THIS IS LIKELY AT TOP AND FOE,
SO HAVE A VFR FORECAST PREVAILING THIS AFTERNOON. LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE ADVECTION PERSISTS THROUGH THE NIGHT. BECAUSE OF THIS
THINK THERE IS A REASONABLE CHANCE FOR MVFR STRATUS TO RETURN.
HOWEVER I DON`T HAVE ENOUGH CONFIDENCE IN THE MOS PROG OF IFR
CONDITIONS TO INCLUDE IN THE FORECAST AT THIS TIME. THERE MAY BE
SOME ELEVATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THU MORNING, BUT THE
BETTER FORCING MAY END OF STAYING WEST OF MHK AND THE PROBS
APPEAR TO LOW TO MENTION IN THE FORECAST.
