.AVIATION...

Expecting VFR conditions to prevail through the next 24 hours. Sfc
ridge axis currently from Northern Oklahoma into the Texas Hill
Country will continue sliding slowly eastward through tonight and
should take up residence across Northern Arkansas into Northeast
Texas by 12z Thu. N-NE winds today near 10kts will decouple
quickly this evening, becoming mostly light and variable and
continuing that way through the post sunrise hours on Thursday.

Thin cirrus will begin spilling into our area from the west later
today and should encompass our entire airspace through the
overnight hours into much of the day Thursday.

DISCUSSION...
Deep north flow with sfc winds also from the north at 10 to 15
mph. Warming may also be inhibited by low lvl inversion, which was
not sufficiently moist for any low clouds. Full sun however, and
overall warming of 6 to 8 degrees from 10 am temps appear
reasonable with aftn highs either side of 60 degrees. No update
needed attm.
