.AVIATION...
Low clouds continue to lift and slowly thin across the region early
this afternoon. VFR has already returned to the I-35 sites, with DRT
likely to scatter to VFR around 19Z. Look for low clouds to return
early Friday morning, with MVFR cigs expected to begin along I-35
around 08Z, with DRT around 11Z. Similar to the last several days,
clouds will lift back to VFR for all sites by late morning.

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday)...
Low-level moisture remains high with overnight temperatures
remaining in the upper 70s to lower 80s. With low-level cloud cover
continuing to increase in areal coverage, temperatures should not
fall much more. Low temperatures for today therefore will be several
degrees above normal. The short-term forecast will remain rain-free
as upper level ridging remains in place across the Southern Plains.
Highs today will top out in the lower to middle 90s across the Hill
Country and Coastal Plains with temperatures near 100-102 closer to
the Rio Grande. Heat index values should be a bit lower than
previous days and will hold off on any Special Weather Statements
today. For tonight, another round of nocturnal stratus is expected
with lows once again in the middle 70s for most locations. Highs
Friday should be fairly similar to today`s highs as the persistent
forecast continues in the short-term.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday)...
The upper ridging remains the dominant feature through the weekend
and warm and dry conditions can be expected. With the ridge shifting
slightly on Monday, a weak cold front makes it`s way through the
state through Wednesday. This will allow for some afternoon rain
chances to re-enter the forecast stating Monday. Best chances for
these showers will be mostly for the eastern half of the area where
there is more moisture available. Temperatures will be near to just
above normal through the forecast period.
