.NEAR TERM [Through Tonight]...

It really does not get much more quiet around here weather wise
than tonight. High pressure over Texas will allow for light/calm
winds. High clouds over the area will hinder some radiational
cooling but the airmass is so dry it may not matter much
(dewpoints in the 20s that suck the moisture out of you...air you
do not wear). Overall forecast looks on track with only some
minor adjustments for ongoing trends.

.AVIATION...
VFR throughout, with main focus of the forecast being a slow
veering of generally light winds to northeasterly. Also, a band
of high cirrus is streaming across the area with some Pacific
moisture, but doesn`t look to be an issue below 25k feet.
