.DISCUSSION...
00Z TAFs.

.AVIATION...
MVFR and locally IFR ceilings across the southwest will become
more widespread overnight with areas of fog developing.
visibilities will also likely get down to 1 mile or below in some
areas with fog and perhaps drizzle. HRRR and RAP indicate the
dense fog may become fairly widespread even later this evening,
so will watch trends through the evening.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 259 PM CST Wed Jan 18 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Widespread low-level moisture is likely to result in another
cloudy/foggy, perhaps drizzly, early morning on Thursday. As a
storm system over the southern Plains begins to move east by
midday tomorrow, some clearing is expected from southwest to
northeast.

A dry and warmer day is expected Friday, before another storm
system arrives for the weekend. Instability will be quite weak,
but a few thunderstorms will be a possibility, mainly over the
southeast half of our forecast area, Saturday night.

Breezy and dry conditions Friday, Sunday, and Tuesday will
elevate the risk of wildfires on those days.
