...New AVIATION...

.SHORT TERM...
(Today and tonight)
Issued at 332 AM CDT Wed Oct 28 2020

...Precipitation Ending...

As the upper trough moves toward the northeast, precipitation will
end today, across West Central Texas. Meanwhile, surface
temperatures at or just below freezing will continue the
potential, for freezing drizzle or freezing rain, mainly across
the Big Country this morning. However, by noon today,
precipitation will end, and skies will begin to clear. Afternoon
highs today will be very sunshine dependent; but, numbers close
to guidance look reasonable. For tonight, surface winds will
remain out of the northwest, and temperatures will fall into
mainly the 35 to 40 range, just before sunrise Thursday.

.LONG TERM...
(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 332 AM CDT Wed Oct 28 2020

...Continued Dry and Warmer...

The long term remains dry, with temperatures generally cooler than
usual, for late October and early November, but warmer than the
last couple days. Models this cycle indicate the upper pattern
will transition into a more or less zonal pattern, by this
weekend. Then, a broad ridge will build over the Rockies, by
early next week. All this will help maintain dry conditions and
temperatures, more or less, close to seasonal normals. The only
exception to warm temperatures will be another weak cold front
Sunday, which will briefly cool temperatures slightly, for
Sunday`s highs. Nevertheless, temperatures quickly rebound, with
highs Tuesday back in the 70s.

.AVIATION...
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1230 PM CDT Wed Oct 28 2020

Precipitation has ended across West Central Texas terminals but
wrap around MVFR cigs continue at several locations. This will
continue off and on until the system exits the area on Thursday.
Otherwise, gusty west and northwest winds this afternoon will
become a little more northwest later tonight and into Thursday
morning. Wind gusts above 25 knots looks likely at times.
