.AVIATION...
The IFR/LIFR cigs have begun to lower early this evening,
especially over SW AR/N LA, with areas of FG beginning to develop
across these areas. This trend should eventually spread into E TX
by mid to late evening, with all of the region likely seeing FG
(some of it dense) which should linger through mid to late morning
Monday. Am expecting only very slow improvements to cigs/vsbys by
midday, but LIFR/IFR cigs with reduced vsbys may persist through 
the afternoon. Can't rule out isolated to widely sct -SHRA
developing during the afternoon across portions of E TX/N LA, but
low confidence precludes VCSH mention attm. Sct SHRA should begin
to increase Monday night over the region as a warm front begins to
shift N into E TX/N LA helping to focus this development ahead of
a closed low that will begin to eject E across Nrn Old MX. Look
for Lt/Vrb winds to persist through the TAF period. /15/
