.AVIATION...
Not a lot of changes with the 18Z TAF forecast and will keep the
VFR trends in place for the rest of the afternoon. With the more
SW flow today, CU field development has been struggling. But the
return of light to moderate S/SE winds tonight at and just above
the surface, we could see more MVFR CIGS overnight through early
Sat morning versus MVFR VIS. The seabreeze might also make an ap-
pearance tomorrow afternoon. 41

UPDATE...
Satellite shows streets of cumulus clouds are developing in the
coastal half of the area, while skies are mostly clear farther
inland with temperatures across the area rising into the 80s. The
forecast looks largely on track to reach highs in the low to mid
90s away from the coast, and solidly in the 80s at the Gulf. Other
than some tweaks to best match with observations, no changes made
to the forecast today and tonight.
