AVIATION...

A weak disturbance continues to move south and east across the
Middle and Upper Red River Valley of NW TX and SW OK late this
evening. IR imagery depicting widespread mid level cloud cover in
association with this disturbance beginning to spread into the
northwest half of our airspace attm. Have added this to the 06z
taf package but otherwise, just some SCT near 5-6kft is all that
is expected overnight as far as low clouds are concerned. This mid
level moisture should be through our eastern most zones by the mid
morning hours on Friday and while we cannot rule out a weak cu
field across the eastern half of our region with the aid of late
morning and afternoon heating on Friday, VFR conditions will
prevail through the next 24 hours.

DISCUSSION...
Upper-trough swinging east across the Red River Valley of north
Texas generating scattered convection across this area. Showers to
continue to shift east toward the ArkLaTex overnight with
approaching trough. However, both high-res and global models
suggest precipitation to diminish while approaching east Texas.
Ongoing forecast advertising 20 pops across east Texas seems
appropriate at this time. Otherwise, clouds to increase in
coverage with the approach of upper-trough. No update necessary
at this time.
