.DISCUSSION...

Note Aviation Discussion below regarding the 06z TAFs.

.AVIATION...

Combination MVFR/VFR conditions expected overnight/early morning
hours followed by a transition to VFR by afternoon Monday.
Generally light onshore flow overnight/early morning increasing to
moderate by afternoon. Expect a transition to MVFR ceilings near
the end of the TAF period.

.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 918 PM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017/

DISCUSSION...Wind speeds have weakened since sunset, but still
remain gusty as a 35 to 40 knot southerly LLJ at 925mb remains
overhead. Patches of stratus are trying to develop, but the LLJ
will likely need to weaken a bit /which should happen after
midnight and result in less mixing/ before greater areal coverage
of stratus can develop.

Overall, the inherited forecast is generally on track. Continued
warm/muggy conditions overnight.
