A mix of mid and high level cloud cover currently prevails across
our air space late this morning with an influx of 6-8kft ceilings
noted across portions of NE TX, SE OK and SW AR. Sprinkles are all
that is remaining for early morning shower activity across
portions of NE TX/SW AR and SE OK with some TSRA noted north and
west of our northern and western most terminal locations. Given
that the favored storm track should stay to our north and west,
have removed any mention of VCSH or VCTS for this 18z TAF period. 

The only significant change was to introduce MVFR ceilings across
our NE TX terminal locations overnight and near and after sunrise
Sunday across NW LA given the greater influx of low level moisture
into the western 2/3rds of our airspace. 

Look for south to southeasterly winds of 8-12kts today with some
higher possible gusts at the TYR terminal until sunset. A
tightening pressure gradient across the Southern Plains overnight
and through the day Sunday will result in stronger winds during
the predawn and post dawn hours on Sunday with sustained winds
near 10-14kts with gusts upwards of 20kts with the aid of mixing
beyond 15z Sun across portions of NE TX.
