Aviation Forecasts Discussions (AFD) INFO

(EXTRACTED FROM FXUS63 KMPX 200139)


    (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Tuesday evening)
    Issued at 634 PM CST Mon Feb 19 2018
    
    We are in our "lull" between heavier precip bursts. Unfortunately,
    this will not mean there will be no precip. Instead, we look to be
    in a steady state situation until the next wave arrives. This
    means a mix of fzdz/sn for all but AXN/STC for the first several
    hours of the TAF. Followed the HRRR for timing next wave in. Will
    be a fast mover, moving through the MPX area between 7z and 11z.
    P-type will be similar to what we saw mid-day Monday, a
    snow/pellet mix, more snow for RWF/STC trending to more pellet for
    EAU. For AXN, it's all snow, and could be quite heavy at that
    between. Snow may linger into the afternoon at AXN, but will end
    quickly in the morning everywhere else. No significant
    improvements in cigs are expected until between 00z and 06z
    Wednesday.
    
    KMSP...Fairly high confidence in this TAF with several hours of
    fzdz to start, followed by another burst of SN/PL around 8z.
