.AVIATION...
Strong onshore winds just above the surface expected to persist
through tonight. This will likely give us more issues with CIGS
rather than VIS overnight into tomorrow morning with low clouds.
Did begin the mention of precipitation tomorrow morning with re-
gard to the activity developing on the cold front. Started with
with VCSH then transitioning to VCTS at CLL around mid-morning.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1023 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017/

Morning surface analysis shows dewpoints back in the low/mid 60s
and temperatures in the low/mid 70s. Temperatures should increase
back into the mid 80s like the last couple of days. Water vapor
imagery shows upper low over the 4 Corners region which will be
the main system supporting the severe weather potential for
tomorrow. Hi-Res mesoscale models showing a line of storms moving
through the area tomorrow afternoon. Afternoon forecast package
will focus on those forecast details. Only changes this morning to
