.AVIATION...
Mostly VFR ceilings with heights ranging from 4-6kft are in and
out of our airspace late this evening. The lone exception is the
TXK terminal with MVFR ceilings currently. As we go through the
overnight hours, expect that we will continue to see mostly VFR
ceilings that will scatter out at times with IR imagery showing
holes in the OVC across NE TX/SW AR and N LA. Cannot rule out that
MVFR ceilings will spread further south of the TXK terminal,
encompassing more the out I-20 Corridor terminals as well.

Cross sectional analysis showing that where the cloud cover can
hold on beyond sunrise on Monday, that cloud cover should hang on
most of the day with any MVFR ceilings likely climbing to VFR
variety. The exception to this may be the ELD terminal where MVFR
ceilings could hang in most of the day Monday. What cloud cover is
still around during the afternoon should scatter out beyond 24/00z
again with the ELD terminal being the exception.

Look for west to northwest winds less than 10kts for the remainder
of the overnight hours with those winds increasing to near 10kts
during the daytime hours on Monday before winds decouple beyond
24/00z.

DISCUSSION...
Made minor changes to the forecast for tonight and Monday
by adjusting the cloud cover and removing the rain chances
early Monday morning from the Northeast zones, Cloud cover
will help keep overnight lows from falling.
