.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail throughout the TAF cycle. SCT-BKN VFR
CIGS are particularly affecting terminals south of the
Interstate-30 corridor, with FEW VFR CIGS to SKC elsewhere. Expect
this trend to persist this evening but BNK VFR CIGS expected to
push northward overnight to the majority of the terminals. Have
showed this trend in the TAFs. Otherwise, a weak cold front has
moved southward to across ktyr, kggg, kshv and kmlu early this
afternoon, and will continue to move southward thus affecting klfk
by late this afternoon. As such, winds will veer to the north at
3-7 kts.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1128 AM CST Thu Dec 14 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Dense mid and high cloud in place across much of the region this
morning along with weak CAA in the wake of a swd progressing cold
front will keep our temperatures from warming up too much today.
Areas along and n of I-30 will likely see a good rebound despite
ongoing CAA as these areas are under mostly clear skies. Have made
some adjustments to sky grids to better account for the cloud
cover. Have also done some work on max temps to lower across the
cloudy areas and raise across the areas that are for the most part
cloud-free. Fcst is otherwise on track. /12/

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 549 AM CST Thu Dec 14 2017/

AVIATION...
For the 14/12Z terminal forecast will prevail VFR
flight categories through the end of the forecast period. Clouds
spreading over the terminals especially to the South of a KELD-
KSHV-KGGG-KTYR line will have sct and bkn 15-27 KFT clouds and
ceilings. Surface winds will be light and variable early this
morning then becoming Northerly 5-10 knots with the passage of a
cold front moving to the South. /06/

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 437 AM CST Thu Dec 14 2017/

DISCUSSION...
A weak cold front just north of the Red River Valley will move
into the region, but with little effect on daytime conditions.
Further south, a broken cloud cover in the mid and upper lvls,
persistently covering much of areas south of I-20, will finally
begin to shift east as stg upper lvl zonal flow becomes more
confluent. Temps to remain mostly seasonal thru Friday night. A
deepening upper trough to the west will begin to pull deep
moisture into east TX Saturday aftn, with deep saturation
spreading across the area Saturday night into Sunday. The surface
boundary will then begin to shift eastward, although models not
quite in as good agreement with the eastward shift and possible
stalling out over portions of LA into early next week as they are
with the initial surge of moisture into the area. Some elevated
instability, along with stg wind shears, may create some embedded
thunder, mainly across the southern portions of the area, mainly
Saturday night. After this precip moves out of the area, a slowly
building upper ridge will bring mostly seasonal and persistent
temps back into the area. /07/
