VFR CONDITIONS SHOULD PREVAIL FOR KDHT AND KGUY FOR THE ENTIRE TAF  
PERIOD. MIGHT SEE SOME FEW-SCT CLOUDS AROUND 1-3KFT AGL IN THE  
10-15Z TIME PERIOD, BUT THAT WILL DEPEND JUST HOW FAR WEST THE LOW  
CLOUDS WILL MAKE IT. KAMA LOOKS TO SEE AT LEAST A COUPLE HOURS OF  
LOW CIGS, AND POSSIBLY LOW VIS. RIGHT NOW GOING WITH 2SM FOR VIS  
AND CIGS DOWN TO 1500FT AGL. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR LIFR OR EVEN  
VLIFR VIS AND CIGS, BUT CONFIDENCE IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO GO THAT  
LOW AT THIS TIME.
