A CLUSTER OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO MOVE SOUTH OUT OF  
COLORADO AND KANSAS TOWARD THE GUY AND DHT TAF SITES, SO HAVE ADDED A  
TEMPO GROUP THERE FOR THUNDERSTORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS THIS EVENING.  
AMA SHOULD REMAIN THUNDERSTORM FREE TONIGHT. SKIES WILL REMAIN VFR  
AND WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT OUTSIDE OF THUNDERSTORMS. ISOLATED  
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AGAIN THURSDAY AFTERNOON, BUT  
CONFIDENCE IN ANY ONE OF THESE STORMS AFFECTING A TAF SITE IS LOW  
RIGHT NOW, SO WILL NOT MENTION ANY THURSDAY AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS  
AT THIS TIME.
