.AVIATION...
T/Td spread has narrowed within a few degrees at some of the
rural locations across the region. Wouldn`t doubt if some shallow
patchy fog develops over grassy areas, but suspect the main
terminals shouldn`t see visby issues. Otherwise, expect VFR
conditions for the next 24+ hours. Will probably see a sct-bkn
cloud deck between 3500-6000ft develop later Sat afternoon across
parts of the area ahead of a weak frontal boundary making its way
in from the north. Other than a weak wind shift to the ne, we`re
not expecting any significant wx with this front. 47

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 950 PM CST Fri Nov 24 2017/
UPDATE...
Another quiet night with some southern-passing cirrus
along the eastern edge of Baja-centered upper ridging. Onshore
flow has re-established itself today and this has allowed many
inland dew points to climb 5 to 8 degrees since this time last
night. Saturday`s minimum temperatures will be a bit milder than
this morning`s readings...around 10 degrees warmer with minimum
interior low 50 temperatures by sunrise. The gradual dew point
increase into the upper 40s to lower 50s...under mainly clear
skies and sub 5 knot winds...may allow for short-lived very
shallow (patchy early morning) fog development primarily across
more north/west rural counties. A mostly sunny morning leading to
a partially cloudy and warm Saturday afternoon...near 10 degree
above normal lower 80 maximum temperatures. Increasing cloud cover
tomorrow night into Sunday morning ahead of an approaching weak
(dry) front that will introduce subtle cooling early in the week.
