Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lubbock TX
1205 PM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.AVIATION...
VFR could be compromised at times well after midnight by MVFR
or IFR ceilings at all terminals. Expectation is for less low clouds
to develop than most models suggest given their recent moist bias.
Could also see low level wind shear develop overnight if 15-20
knot southerly winds slacken, though these gusty winds should
prevail for most/all of the night.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1030 AM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017/

UPDATE...
Quick update to remove measurable rain chances today as a decaying
upper low exits the Rolling Plains. Current precip echoes across
our northeastern counties are largely virga with some sprinkles.
Given mean subsidence behind this wave, firm capping, and minimal
surface convergence today, additional precip should be hard-pressed
to materialize.

.LUB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
None.
