.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will persist through today. Winds are expected to
increase through the afternoon and shift from southerly to more
southeasterly as the sea breeze moves inland. Winds will
gradually weaken and shift back to the south late this evening and
overnight. With drier air aloft moving into the region, cloud
cover will be minimal out west in LRD, but with onshore flow
providing low level moisture, scattered low clouds will be
possible for the eastern terminals.

AVIATION...

Areas of MVFR cigs continue moving across S Texas early this
morning, impacting ALI and VCT. Anticipate these ceilings to lift
and clear by the mid morning, with VFR predominating through the
remainder of the period at all terminals. A southerly flow with
gusts at and around 20 to 25 kts will develop during the mid to
late morning, backing to the southeast during the afternoon. Winds
will gradually relax during the evening and overnight.
