SHOWERS DEVELOPING AND MOVING IN FROM THE SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST.  
THERE WILL BE WIDELY SCATTERED RAIN CHANCES AND MAYBE A FEW  
LIGHTNING STRIKES SOUTH OF I-44 THROUGH THIS EVENING WITH THE  
BEST POTENTIAL OVER SOUTH CENTRAL MISSOURI TONIGHT. THE MAIN

AND EAST THROUGH TOMORROW.

THIS NICE WEATHER WILL CONTINUE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

AVIATION
 
(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z FRIDAY EVENING)  
ISSUED AT 604 PM CDT THU JUN 22 2017  
 
MOSTLY CLOUDY (VFR/MVFR) SKIES EXPECTED THROUGH MUCH OF THIS TAF  
PERIOD. THE QUESTION IS WILL ANY RAINFALL MAKE IT INTO THE REGION  
AS MOISTURE FROM THE REMNANTS OF CINDY MOVES NORTHWARD INTO THE  
MIDSOUTH REGION. BBG HAS THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR RAINFALL,  
HOWEVER, EVEN THAT LOOKS TO BE ISOLATED AT THIS TIME. SOME SIGNAL  
FOR IFR VISIBILITIES FOR BBG FRIDAY MORNING ALSO.  
 
ADDITIONAL SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH  
THE MORNING AND AFTERNOON, HOWEVER, THINGS SHOULD BEGIN CLEARING  
OUT TOWARD THE END OF THE PERIOD. WINDS SHOULD STAY AROUND OR LESS  
THAN 10KTS TRANSITIONING TO A MORE NORTHERLY DIRECTION BEHIND A  
COLD FRONTAL BOUNDARY THAT SHOULD MOVE THROUGH DURING THE DAY  
FRIDAY.
