AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK
1042 PM CDT FRI JUL 18 2014

.DISCUSSION...
REFER TO THE 06Z AVIATION FORECAST BELOW...

&&

.AVIATION...
PRIMARILY MVFR CIGS CONTINUE OVER MUCH OF SRN/CNTRL OKLAHOMA AND
NRN TEXAS. THESE WILL LIKELY LINGER INTO THE MORNING HOURS AT
KOKC/KOUN...WITH SLOW IMPROVEMENT AT KLAW/KSPS AS THIS AREA OF
STRATUS IS WHITTLED AWAY FROM THE WEST. EXPECT PATCHY FOG AT ALL
TERMINALS BUT KGAG/KWWR...ESPECIALLY FROM 10Z THROUGH 12Z AS WINDS
BECOME NEARLY CALM. WINDS WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT AROUND TO THE SOUTH
BY 16Z SATURDAY...WITH A RETURN TO VFR CONDITIONS AT ALL TERMINALS
BY 18Z.

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 943 PM CDT FRI JUL 18 2014/

UPDATE...
THE PRIMARY CHANGE IN THE PACKAGE THIS EVENING IS WITH SKY COVER
AND HANGING ON TO THE CLOUDS LONGER. THE CLOUDS HAVE BEEN SLOWER
TO ERODE SINCE SUNSET... AND HRRR AND CURRENT TRENDS INDICATE THAT
THE OVERCAST WILL LIKELY LINGER FOR A WHILE. TEMPERATURES HAVE
DROPPED FASTER THAN FORECAST GRIDS INDICATED IN NORTHWESTERN
OKLAHOMA WHERE SKIES HAVE CLEARED... BUT WITH HIGH DEWPOINTS WILL
KEEP A FLOOR ON THE TEMPERATURE DROP. ADJUSTED THE HOURLY GRIDS
SOMEWHAT... BUT FORECAST MINS STILL LOOK REASONABLE.
