CIRRUS TRAVERSING THE AREA AND SHOULD CONTINUE TO OVERNIGHT.
MOISTURE GRADUALLY INCREASING AND EXPECT TO SEE MVFR CIGS DEVELOP
FROM AROUND UTS-CLL-3T5 AND POSSIBLY DEVELOP FURTHER SOUTHWARD
AFTER 08Z BUT NOT VERY CONFIDENT OF THIS ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT
GIVEN THE MIXING TODAY. MVFR DECK MORE LIKELY TOMORROW MORNING BUT
SHOULD BE SHORT LIVED AS GUIDANCE IS PRETTY BULLISH IN LIFTING
INVERSION HEIGHTS WITH INCREASED SOUTHERLY FLOW AND LLJ EXPANDING
EAST TOWARD THE AREA. MORE GUSTY WINDS EXPECTED SATURDAY. CIGS
SHOULD DROP AGAIN TOMORROW EVENING AND CONFIDENCE IS HIGHER THAT
THE AREA WILL SEE A MORE WIDESPREAD ST/SC MVFR DECK.
