.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 1142 AM CST Mon Dec 5 2016/

DISCUSSION...See Aviation section for 18Z TAFs.

AVIATION...Stratus deck with MVFR ceilings from 1000-1500 feet
persists over much of South Texas but visible satellite imagery
shows breaks occurring along the Rio Grande as drier air in the
mid to upper levels of the atmosphere south of the upper low has
finally worked its way into the lower levels. Expect clouds will
gradually lift to MVFR range around 2500 feet by 20Z over the
Coastal Bend while clearing reaches LRD area. Clouds will be
slower to lift in the VCT area but expect VFR conditions to reach
this region by 23Z. Clear skies are expected overnight. With the
amount of rainfall over the region the past couple of days, the
boundary layer will be very moist under light southwest winds
overnight. Could see patchy fog form especially over the inland
coastal plains sites. Will show MVFR vsbys from 09-15Z. Clear
skies and southwest winds will be prevalent for the area after 15Z
Tuesday.
