AFTERNOON LOW LEVEL WIND FORECAST

...SHAWNEE COUNTY...

.DISCUSSION...

AVIATION...(FOR THE 18Z TAFS THROUGH 18Z FRIDAY AFTERNOON)
ISSUED AT 1225 PM CDT THU OCT 30 2014

EXPECT VFR CONDITIONS FOR MOST OF THE FIRST HALF OF THE TAF PERIOD
AT ALL TERMINALS AND GENERALLY STRONGER WINDS. THE CHALLENGE IS MORE
TOWARD THE LATER HALF OF THE PERIOD WHEN MORNING STRATUS BECOMES A
FACTOR OVER THE REGION. CONFIDENCE IS LOW ON WHETHER THIS WILL BE
ENOUGH TO CAUSE BKN CIGS, SO LEFT THAT OUT FOR NOW. HOWEVER, AFTER
DAY BREAK, ANY CIGS THAT FORM SHOULD BEGIN TO SCATTER OUT BY LATE
MORNING.
