.DISCUSSION...UPDATED FOR LATEST /18Z/ AVIATION DISCUSSION BELOW.

.AVIATION...WIND IS THE MAIN ISSUE THIS AFTERNOON AS
SOUTHEASTERLIES CRANKING AT 20+ KNOTS WITH GUSTS TO 30+ KNOTS
ALONG THE HIGHWAY 77 CORRIDOR INCLUDING KBRO/KHRL...AND EXPECT
THIS TO CONTINUE THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON BEFORE THINGS RAMP DOWN
TOWARD OR JUST AFTER SUNSET. THE WIND MACHINE IS ENHANCED BY THE
ENERGY CRUISING ACROSS NORTH TEXAS AS I WRITE...AND WILL EASE OFF
A BIT ON TUESDAY THOUGH THERE WILL BE SOME GUSTINESS BY LATE
MORNING.

OTHERWISE...ANOTHER FAIRLY TYPICAL DAY WITH ENOUGH LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE TO SUPPORT A BRIEF PERIOD OF BROKEN MVFR/LOW VFR CEILINGS
WHICH WILL LIFT TO LOW VFR IN ALL AREAS AND SCATTER OUT AS DRY AIR
SPREAD FROM THE WEST/SOUTHWEST INTO THE VALLEY...WITH KMFE
IMPROVING SOONEST BUT KHRL AND KBRO PROBABLY SOON AFTER. FOR THE
PREVAILING PERIOD THROUGH 02/03Z WENT FOR SCATTERED THROUGH SOME
BROKEN PERIODS ARE LIKELY FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE PERIOD.

OVERNIGHT...EXPECT THE LOW MVFR CEILINGS TO RETURN TOWARD MIDNIGHT
AND CONTINUE THROUGH EARLY-MID MORNING BEFORE EVEN DRIER AIR
ARRIVES TO SCATTER THINGS OUT BETWEEN 14/15Z OR SO WITH CEILINGS
REMAINING IN THE HIGH MVFR RANGE.

HAVE REMOVED ALL MENTION OF PRECIPITATION...SEE EARLIER DISCUSSION
FOR REASONS.
