.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z FRIDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1236 PM CDT THU APR 23 2015

EXPECTATION IS FOR VFR CONDITIONS TO REMAIN INTO THE AFTERNOON AND
EARLY EVENING. THE LOWER CONFIDENCE COMES INTO THE LAST HALF OF
THE TAF PERIOD WITH THE MENTION OF VCTS. THE NATURE OF THIS ROUND
OF SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS DOES APPEAR TO BE VERY
LIKELY BUT SCATTERED, SO TIMING MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED. AREAS OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS COULD ALSO BRING CIG/VIS DOWN TO THE IFR
CATEGORY, BUT ISN`T EXPECTED TO REMAIN AFTER PASSAGE.
