.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected thru Sunday, but elevated north winds
will remain an aviation concern for a good part of the overnight
hours...stronger closer to the coast. We should see the overall
gustiness taper off by 10Z well inland, but increase a bit once
again by mid morning as we get some additional mixing. Winds
decouple and go light shortly after sunset Sunday evening. 47

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 852 PM CST Sat Nov 18 2017/
With the cold front now through the area, expect temperatures to
continue to fall for the remainder of the evening and overnight
hours (today`s low temperatures will officially occur right around
midnight). The strong and gusty north winds that have developed
behind the front will gradually weaken well inland overnight but
will persist near the coast and offshore. The wind advisories for
the coastal counties, the small craft advisories for the bays, and
the gale warnings for the Gulf waters remain in effect.

Cooler temperatures will persist from tonight on through all of the
upcoming week. The current forecast for Thanksgiving is cool and dry,
with morning lows ranging from the upper 30s/around 40 well inland to
around 50 at the coast. Daytime highs in the mid 60s are
anticipated. 42
