.AVIATION...
ALL IS QUIET ON THE AVIATION FRONT THIS MORNING...AND THAT IS
EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT AND SUNDAY. A
STRONG STACKED RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE ACROSS THE LOWER MISS VALLEY
WILL KEEP THINGS PRETTY QUIET WHEN IT COMES TO CLOUD COVER OVER
THE NEXT 24 HOURS.

LATEST VIS IMAGERY SHOWING CU FIELD DEVELOPING WELL SOUTH OF THE
I-20 CORRIDOR OF NE TX INTO N LA THIS MORNING. MAY BE ABLE TO GET
A WEAK CU FIELD GOING CLOSER TO THE CORRIDOR LATER THIS AFTERNOON
BUT NOTHING THAT WOULD SUGGEST ANY CEILINGS. WITH WEAK STEERING
CURRENTLY BOTH ALOFT AND CLOSER TO THE SFC...DECIDED TO MENTION
VARIABLE WINDS ACROSS MOST TERMINALS FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY
BEFORE WINDS BECOME LIGHT SOUTHERLY ACROSS THE WEST TO NEAR CALM
ELSEWHERE AFTER SUNSET. A VEERING SW WIND IN THE MORNING...MAINLY
LESS THAN 7KTS WILL GRADUALLY BACK TO A MORE SOUTHERLY DIRECTION
BY THE END OF THE TAF PERIOD SUN/18Z.

HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH SOME PATCHY DENSE GROUND FOG LATELY AT THE
MLU TERMINAL AND THUS...HAVE ADDRESSED THIS WITH PREVAILING 5SM
AT 24/08Z WITH A TEMPO GROUP TO NEAR 1 MILE DURING THE PREDAWN
HOURS IN MLU. PERHAPS A SHORT WINDOW OF A 3-5SM VSBY AT THE LFK
TERMINAL IN THE 2410-2413 TIMEFRAME BUT OTHERWISE...VFR CONDITIONS
WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
