Short term...(today and tonight) 
issued at 241 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016 

The forecast challenge in the short term continues to be the 
immediate cooling trend and more cloudy conditions that are likely 
by later in the day, followed by a northern plains wave later 
tonight. Weak westerly winds in the far west will help maintain

may have the potential to keep temperatures just above freezing in 
central Kansas (hays-rush center). 

Increasingly upslope surface flow supporting freezing fog

Aviation...(for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night) 
issued at 1205 am CST Friday Feb 12 2016

across the local terminals before an increasing chance for IFR 
category stratus becomes a potential impact. The 12km NAM indicates 
upslope stratus developing extending far enough west Friday evening 
to impact even ddc and gck into the overnight.
