.AVIATION...
06Z TAF discussion:
Moist air will continue to advect into the region from the Gulf
tonight resulting in reduced flight categories areawide. IFR/LIFR
CIGS should prevail at each site tonight if they already haven`t.
visibilities will be reduced as fog develops but moderate wind
speeds from the south should prevent any dense fog from
developing. Ceilings will improve tomorrow due to efficient
boundary layer mixing. Winds will be gusty and from the south
throughout the day tomorrow. CIGs will once again deteriorate
after sunset tomorrow.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

Adjustments where made to the night time temperatures to reflect
what is currently being observed. At the moment night radiation cooling
is winning over the warm advection. However in a few hours the
winds will start to pick up and temperatures will rise steadily--by
sunrise the region will be in the balmy mid to upper 60s.

In the southeastern region of the CWA, patchy fog was added into
the forecast in the early morning hours. The HRRR was showing
visibility of less than a quarter of mile south of I-20 and east
of I-59. If a dense fog advisory would to be issued overnight, it
would be likely to be for this immediate area. /12/
