AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z SATURDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 552 PM CDT FRI APR 24 2015

FOR THE 00Z TAFS, MVFR CIGS ARE IN PLACE AHEAD OF THE APPROACHING
STORM SYSTEM THAT WILL BRING PERIODS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO
THE TAF SITES THIS EVENING THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. IFR
CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE AT TIMES WITH ANY OF THE STRONGER STORMS
THAT TRACK OVER THE TAF SITES, ALONG WITH GUSTY WINDS. SHOWERS WITH
SOME SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD PERSIST INTO SATURDAY MORNING
BEFORE EXITING FROM WEST TO EAST. WINDS WILL SHIFT FROM SOUTHEAST TO
NORTHWEST WITH THIS PASSING SYSTEM.  UNCERTAINTY LIES WITH WHETHER
CIGS WILL SCATTER OUT AND IMPROVE TO VFR FOR THE REMAINDER OF
SATURDAY OR IF MVFR STRATUS WILL LINGER BEHIND THE EXITING
PRECIPITATION THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS, SO WE WILL CONTINUE TO
MONITOR THIS POTENTIAL IN FUTURE TAF UPDATES.
