.AVIATION...
For the 10/06Z TAFs, VFR conditions continue at all sites but a
mid deck of altocumulus around 6Kft continues to slowly overtake
most terminal aerodromes this evening. These clouds show no sign
of dissipating and will persist overnight except across our far
southern and eastern sites at LFK/MLU. Otherwise, cigs are likely
to hold firm with an otherwise quiet TAF cycle. Light to near calm
winds generally bearing an E/NE direction 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 and possibly a
bit higher over the east Texas terminals in the afternoon/evening.

DISCUSSION...
A deck of stratocu has slowly moved across northern portions of
the area. Have adjusted overnight lows slightly upward for that
portion of the area, although actual lows may be variable
depending on exact orientation of this cloud cover later tonight.
But generally, expect overnight lows to range in the upper 20s to
lower 30s./VII/.
