.DISCUSSION...
Weak warm front mainly along Interstate 20 to continue shifting
north today. Dry air aloft to mix down with diurnal heating
allowing for skies to clear areawide. Winds speeds due to an
enhanced pressure gradient to increase to around 20 mph across
east Texas and southeast Oklahoma. Lake wind advisory is in
effect from noon to 7 PM. Current forecast is on track this
morning. Resent forecast to eliminate morning fog wording.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 746 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017/

AVIATION...
For the 23/12Z TAF period, MVFR cigs are covering most terminals
this morning except for ELD/MLU. Some intermittent IFR conditions
are possible through 15Z with cigs dropping just below 1Kft over
parts of East Texas. Frontal boundary has begun to lift northeast
as it becomes more diffuse and this may allow MVFR cigs to fill in
at ELD/MLU later this morning. Cigs will lift and scatter out by
late morning into the afternoon with VFR conditions returning at
all sites. South winds will be increasing throughout the day with
speeds around 15 kts or higher across East Texas with gusts over
25 kts. Farther east, speeds will average 8-12 kts with gusts near
20 kts at SHV/TXK. Winds will only drop off marginally overnight
as the pressure gradient remains strong ahead of a cold front set
to arrive late on Friday. Low cigs will likely return area wide on
Friday morning with increasing southerly flow ahead of the front.
