.AVIATION...23/06Z TAF Issuance...
An area of MVFR stratus across central and northern Oklahoma will
continue to lift, albeit slowly, northward through this morning.
Expect sites in central and southern Oklahoma to clear to VFR near
the 23/06Z TAF Issuance time, perhaps an hour our two after
issuance... 07 to 08Z. southeast and south winds will remain
breezy overnight, increasing through daybreak at nearly all sites.
MVFR stratus is expected to redevelop near sunrise, from western
north Texas and across the western two thirds of Oklahoma. This
will quickly clear out through midday. The greatest concern will
be the strong south winds developing in the morning and persisting
through nearly the end of the period. Sites across western and
northwestern Oklahoma are expected to see sustained winds of 20 to
25 kts, approaching 30 kts at times, and gusts to 40 kts. Into the
evening, across the whole area, south winds will remain stout
through the end of the period.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 925 PM CDT Wed Mar 22 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Some fog is still expected in northwest Oklahoma where dewpoint
temperatures in the 50s are expected to arrive later tonight in
the cooler air. With uniform wind direction and the lack of much
of a surface boundary in southern Kansas, we still don`t expect
widespread dense fog in the northwest. However, many areas of the
northwest will have lowered visibility. A wind advisory was added
for tomorrow afternoon for western Oklahoma. Rapid cyclogenesis
in eastern Colorado through the day will increase south winds in
that part of Oklahoma. Some gusts to 50 mph are possible.
