1142 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 19 2014

Aviation...
VFR conditions are expected to prevail at most sites throughout
the 06z taf period. Mostly tempo MVFR stratus/ceilings will be possible
around sunrise at a few sites...but these should lift by middle
morning. Cannot rule out a few showers/thunderstorms during the
afternoon/evening Wednesday...but coverage too isolated to warrant
mention in the tafs. Otherwise...expect S to southwesterly winds 5-10 kts
through the period. /12/

Discussion...
convection has ended for the evening and has been removed from the
grids. The rain and outflows have played havoc with temperatures across
the area...with warmest readings in northern areas...which
remained mostly dry. Some current readings are near forecast lows
across deep East Texas...but expect little change for the remainder
of the night.

Other than tonight's probability of precipitation...hourly temperatures and dewpoints...no other
changes at this time. /14/
