.AVIATION...
FOR THE 6Z TAF PACKAGE...PLAN TO HIT THE FOG A LITTLE HARDER AT
THE RURAL TAF SITES. TEMP DEWPOINT SPREAD IS WITHIN A DEGREE OR
TWO AT SEVERAL LOCATIONS AND A FEW SITES ARE REPORTING SOME 4-6SM
VISBYS ALREADY. WOULDN`T DOUBT SEEING A FEW HOURS OF IFR CONDITIONS
AT THE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE LOCATIONS LIKE LBX/CXO. OTHERWISE...KEPT
GENERAL TAF PACKAGE ABOUT THE SAME DURING THE DAY - MOSTLY VFR
FROM MID MORNING ONWARD. SOME OF THE MODELS ARE CURRENTLY COMING
IN WITH MORE SCT AFTN PRECIP THEN PREVIOUSLY ADVERTISED AS DEEPER
MOISTURE STARTS MOVING BACK IN. OTHER SOLUTIONS REMAIN DRY. THOUGHT
ABOUT ADDING SOME VCSH`S...BUT CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY EXISTS AND
WILL LET THE NEXT SHIFT LOOK AT ALL THE NEWEST DATA AND ADJUST IF
NECESSARY. 47
