.AVIATION...
For the 10/00Z TAFs, VFR conditions continue at all sites but a
mid deck of altocumulus around 6-7Kft has invaded most terminals
this evening. These clouds look to persist overnight although some
erosion may occur on the eastern and southern flank at SHV/GGG/TYR
and possibly LFK as well. Otherwise, a quiet TAF period with light
winds generally out of the E/NE to eventually go calm overnight as
surface high pressure remains anchored just to our northeast. Some
veering of winds will occur on Saturday as the high shifts farther
east, allowing a more E/SE component with speeds ranging from 5-10
kts.
