.DISCUSSION...
For the 22/18Z TAF period, VFR conditions prevailing across most
terminals sites except for NE TX terminals where MVFR conditions
are being observed. The weak cold front that moved south of KSHV
will washout later today, with southerly winds of 5 to 10 kts.
Overnight winds will veer southerly at 5 to 10 kt filtering in
moist air into terminal locations. This moist air could cause
patchy fog, MVRF, IFR conditions around 23/12Z to 23/15Z tomorrow.

.DISCUSSION...
The back door cold front is weak, but still moving SW looking at
surface gusts and visible imagery from NE TX back into central LA.
It may yet drop farther South across I-20 in NE TX with TYR SE
and GGG E. Temps are close to forecast and have been updated with
LAPS. With morning wording still in zones will likely update
wording only again for afternoon after we see what the gusts are
doing, but already running out of gas looking at latest obs. Radar
is still quiet and sky is open over our SW AR counties and NE LA
parishes. Lots of low clouds over NE TX along boundary especially.
