.AVIATION...
/12Z TAFS/

Patchy low clouds with MVFR cigs have been coming and going
across several West Central Texas terminals this morning. These
should continue to persist for a few more hours, but should
dissipate by mid morning. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible
this afternoon, but given the sparse coverage expected, will not
include in the terminals at this point.

SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

An area of showers continues across the Permian Basin and South
Plains early this morning, along the western fringe of the upper
level ridge. A few showers have also crept into portions of Central
Texas as a weak upper level low meanders across the Texas coast.
West Central Texas will largely remain between these two systems for
today and tonight, with latest HRRR showing just a few showers and
storms developing this afternoon across the Hill Country and
Heartland. Will continue the mention of isolated PoPs across the far
west and the east, leaving both San Angelo and Abilene in the dry
gap for now. A little more cloud cover possible this afternoon as
the better low level moisture starts to move in from the Gulf of
Mexico, so temperatures will be near or a couple degree cooler than
yesterday.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday through Wednesday)

The combination of an upper level low moving slowly west across
south Texas and tropical moisture will bring isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms to West Central Texas. Most of this
activity will be during the afternoon and evening hours.
Temperatures will be a few degrees below normal through much of this
period. Highs will be mainly in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

(Wednesday Night through Friday)

Going with a dry forecast and a slow warming trend Thursday and
Friday. Highs will be mainly 90 to 95 and lows in the upper 60s to
lower 70s.
