AVIATION...
For the 24/06Z TAFs, VFR conditions with SKC prevail for now but
that will be changing over the next several hours with south winds
from 8-14 kts and occasional higher gusts. This will aid in low
stratus advecting northward this morning ahead of an approaching
cold front. MVFR/IFR conditions will spread across all sites until
the front gradually clears from west to east through mid to late
morning across E TX and during the afternoon hours in N LA/S AR.
Winds will quickly shift NW with frontal passage and some gusts up
to 20 kts or higher could occur invof of the front. Skies will
clear behind the front so VFR conditions will return late in the
period as the front advances on to the east, finally clearing MLU
shortly after 25/00Z with NW winds dropping off slightly to near
10 kts or less.
