(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Friday morning)
Issued at 613 AM CST Thu Dec 14 2017
MVFR clouds will dominate the airspace today. As those clouds
lower, we will likely see flurries get generated, as we have seen
overnight in northern MN. However, there look to be two
concentrated areas of heavier snow (MVFR vis) this afternoon, one
will slide SW of AXN/RWF, with the other area going across western
WI and impacting RNH/EAU. Heavily favored the LAV for the cigs
forecast with these TAFs, which may be a bit pessimistic with
cigs tonight, though given the time of year, it's usually better
to err on the side of the clouds lingering.
KMSP...MVFR Cigs are quickly encroaching from the west and should
be in place between 13z and 14z. There is a threat for cigs to
drop below 018, but lower confidence in if cigs will actually go
that low. Have cigs trending VFR late tonight into Friday morning,
but that may not happen.
