Aviation...
weak upper level shear axis remains anchored across our region
late this evening. Infrared imagery showing that the middle and high level
moisture has moved well east of our region this evening. For that
reason...have removed a lot of this cloud cover from the 06z taf
package. An increasing low level pressure gradient overnight will
result in the development of low clouds with the possibility of
IFR/MVFR ceilings briefly at the lfk/tyr/ggg terminals. Also
cannot rule out some brief visibility restrictions as well at the
lfk/eld terminals.

Otherwise...descent cumulus field should develop with the aid of
heating on Thursday with VFR conditions prevailing. Look for light
winds overnight...becoming southeast near 4-8kts areawide.
