.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 614 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017/

DISCUSSION...
For the 19/12Z TAFS, IFR/LIFR conditions will plague our TAF
sites through this morning with widespread low stratus and patchy
fog, becoming dense in some areas with visibilities less than a
mile at times. These cigs/vsbys will be slow to improve until
sufficient low level mixing is achieved with increased warming
later today. Clouds will gradually lift and scatter somewhat this
afternoon, but should remain mostly BKN with cigs in the low VFR
category through early this evening. SE winds at 5-10 kts on
average will prevail through the period and increasing moisture
leading to MVFR/IFR cigs returning after 20/06Z with showers and
thunderstorms moving into our E TX terminals ahead of a strong
upper level trough out across W TX by early Monday morning.
Farther east, lower stratus will fill back in with patchy fog
possible once again as well. Convection will continue to spread
east through Monday after the TAF period concludes at 20/12Z.
