AVIATION...
For the 27/12 TAF period, VFR conditions to dominate under surface
high pressure. Light and variable winds to begin the period until
the high shifts east, allowing winds to trend more S/SE as speeds
increase to between 5-10 kts with some gusts possible at TYR this
afternoon. Mostly SKC conditions are expected with only occasional
passing cirrus through this afternoon, but stratus will return on
Friday morning as warm air advection increases with southerly flow
becoming stronger. MVFR cigs will likely affect most sites before
the end of the TAF period, starting at LFK around 28/08Z and then
advecting north to I-20 terminals around 09Z-10Z and lastly near
TXK/ELD around daybreak. Fog is not likely due to winds increasing
through the overnight period, averaging 8-12 kts.
