.AVIATION...
For the ArkLaTex, SKC with sfc winds W/NW 10KT or less overnight
and then on through Tuesday. Our climb winds are likewise W/NW
20-50KT and then near 10kft winds back to W/SW for flight levels
60-100KT by FL240. Our balloon sounding showed a 130KT jet max
near FL360. Cirrus over W TX now will overspread our area for
Tuesday. Otherwise some patchy frost at daybreak and another nice
day. Outlook is for more to come with high pressure moving in and
then our next convective weather maker not until Fri/Sat. /24/

UPDATE...
Pressure gradient still fairly tight across our region this
evening but decoupling will allow for a steady 5-10kt wind
overnight across our entire region. It appears that cu field in
association with the upper trough will remain well north of our
region and thin cirrus will remain mostly south of our region thus
there is not much to effect temperatures falling to forecast mins
except for the wind. Forecast has this will under control so no
update is necessary for tonight.
