.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 724 PM CDT Fri Jun 14 2019/ 

AVIATION [00Z TAF Issuance]...

Mainly VFR for this package. A brief stint of MVFR possible 10-13z
with a SC deck near 2000-2500 feet. Showers and isolated
thunderstorms possible 13-21z at the southern terminals if the
moisture doesn't mix out to quickly. VCSH during the period but
will probably be more confident one way or the other with the 00z
guidance. Breezy tomorrow with southerly winds gusting to
18-24kts.
