.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 707 PM CDT Thu May 25 2017/

AVIATION...
For the 26/00Z terminal forecast, will be prevailing VFR flight
categories until after 26/09Z when lower level moisture return on
the strong Southerly low level and boundary layer winds allow for
a MVFR deck to spread NE across E and NE TX and adjacent sections
of SW AR and NW LA around 26/12Z. The MVFR ceilings will be slow
to erode and looks to be between 26/19Z to 26/21Z when VFR
conditions return. For KELD and KMLU the lower ceilings will not
be dropping until the mid morning and not lasting into mid day.
A tight pressure gradient between surface high pressure off to the
East and surface low pressure over the Central and Southern
Plains will provide South winds of 10-16 knots with higher gusts
over E and NE TX overnight and stronger from the early morning to
the end of the forecast period of 27/00Z. /06/
