.AVIATION...Quiet is the word this forecast, even more than 24
hours ago when we had to deal with dodge `em showers...which
ultimately occurred near Valley Airport in Harlingen Wednesday
afternoon. No such opportunity today as drier stable air
dominates the atmosphere. For early this morning, noticed a small
patch of MVFR ceilings near Valley Airport but with just enough
mixing and low level humidity still in reason, do not expect much
more than few to scattered MVFR (1500-2000 foot) clouds. Should be
enough wind to preclude even the ground fog that popped in and out
of the official obs around sunrise Wednesday so left visibility
restrictions out.

Thereafter, classic fair weather cumulus with rising bases from
low VFR to 5-7K feet per sounding mixing heights; dry air should
keep coverage at scattered though there could be a few moments of
broken skies between 15 and 18Z. Skies clear out by early evening
and should remain so through end of the forecast, though MVFR
ceilings are in the offing toward daybreak Friday as low level
humidity picks up along with a bit more southeast flow.
