Aviation...periods of MVFR ceilings remainder of tonight with VFR
prevailing from middle morning through remainder of the taf period at all
terminals. Strong srly low level jet around 40 kts will aid in stratus
development around 2 kft across much of S Texas tonight. Have a mixture
of scattered to broken ceilings for all terminals through middle morning Thursday. Drier
airmass /xcpt at surface/ is expeceted to build into the region drng the
day Thursday resulting in less cloud cover and thus VFR prevailing.
Gusty srly winds rest of tonight will gradually decrease in
intensity by sunrise /lightest at kvct and strongest at klrd/ and
non convective low level wind shear has been included in tafs for tonight due to
strength of low level jet just above the surface. Low level jet will quickly mix down
beginning around middle morning with sustained winds of 15 to 25 kts and
gusts to around 30 kts likely through early evening at all terminals.
