Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Norman OK

Aviation...
06z tafs...moisture will continue to stream northward
overnight...and fog is likely to develop across much of central
and southern Oklahoma...and perhaps western North Texas through
the morning hours. Low stratus is also likely to accompany this
increasing moisture. IFR ceilings/visibilities will be likely at most
terminals aside from kgag/kwwr...in the 10z to 14z timeframe. VFR
conditions should return thereafter. Scattered thunderstorms and rain still look
probable...but confidence remains too low at any single terminal
to include tempo groups.
